11 years old and still strong! This is my first car and I've owned it for nearly six years. I've been beating the hell out of this car since high school and it never breaks. Got it with 60K and now with 140K it still runs 100%. With a 5-sp manual and the EX's V-Tec system you can really get exciting performance from this car; however, if you're looking for a fun/fast performer don't get an automatic. I still get 30+ MPG on the highway at 80+ MPH. Other than replacing the master clutch cylender at 70K, only routine maintenance.
V-Tec, 5SP, Moon Roof, surprisingly good stock speakers, 30+ MPG.
If looking for performance, swap the 195/60/15 Michelin MXV4's for a set of 205/55/15 V-rated Michelin Pilots. These tires made my Accord handle like a BMW. Get an aftermarket stereo - but you can keep the stock speakers.
