This is the best car I have ever owned! After 15 years and LOTS of miles, it has had no major repairs, never left me stranded, and always been fun to drive. I don't baby my car, either - it has spent almost all of its time without a garage, and I take it places that other people take their 4WDs. It holds my bikes, my kayaks, my dogs, and camping gear (maybe not all at the same time). It has been perfect for an active lifestyle. It is my 4th Honda and, even though they have all been good, this is the best of the bunch. I am going to have a party for it when we roll over 300,000 - and expect the clutch to last far beyond that...
Reliability, interior space, fun to drive.
Start selling them in the US again - I would love to be able to get a new one when this one is ready to retire.
Absolutely incredible reliability.
Zero unexpected repairs, only routine
maintainance (oil chges,filters,bulbs
timing belts, etc.) in over 365,000
miles. Starts better than my wife's
new Accord, and drives like the day I
bought it; cloth seats show no wear. 2
failures in all this time: cassette
player eats tapes so it now holds my
CD adapter, and the electric antenna
mast needed to be replaced ($25.). I
kept it away from local Honda garage
which has a reputation for creating
problems. This has also been my
experience with my daughters '93
Accord which has not been as trouble
free (bought used).
Reliablity, starts first time,
everytime. Useful wagon space.
Relatively quiet, no rattles even with
all these miles. Exterior style still
current, doesn't look 'old'.
Too bad Honda doesn't clone and
reintroduce this Wagon.
I love this car! It's my second Accord, and it's better than the old '83, which had rust from little driving. Instead of abrupt changes, the Honda body style evolves, so the car doesn't look 12 years old, even parked next to another Accord. I've had absolutely no trouble it. I feel safe and secure in my wagon, and I can haul a washing machine or camp out in the back if I must. The worst thing about this car was my friends' reactions. I sold a sports car for it, and they were stunned I went suburban wagon. That said, they all call when they need to move something or take a long trip! I agree with other writers, it's time for Honda to return this gem to the American market!
After the incredible reliability, the timeless style, sun roof, roomy rear, and the electric driver's seat.
Bring it back! What are they thinking??? It's a gem and a practical answer to the SUV.
This is the best car I have ever
owned. I am currently looking to buy
another as I just totalled my EX Wagon
on the highway in a snowstorm. I just
purchased the car 6 months ago, had no
problems whatsoever, and will
definitely buy another one.
After 150,000 miles, still no major
service items or irksome small
repairs. Standard transmission makes
a real difference in reliability and
drivability. Still on first clutch,
but it's time. No squeaks, no runs,
no drips, no errors. lucky me?
