So far I've owned this car for over 3 years, and still have no major problems. I guess it's because i owned a troublesome 99 Ford Contour before this... good riddance! The Accord was number one in the FWD sedan category back in the days and can still be if modified correctly. Even though the stock engine makes almost no power, i managed to swap it with a 200hp DOHC prelude engine with a 5 speed, added a better sport-tuned suspension, upgraded brakes, and still didn't manage to break my bank account. Compared to the flabby ride it once was (still a lot better than other sedans back in its days) it's now a quick, maneuverable sports sedan! There's tons of after-market support for this car!
Light-weight for its size, sleek, athletic texture/form, Prelude engine compatible, easy to maintain, very fun to drive if modified, fairly roomy, lots of after-market support!
Make RWD Accords!!! More power and torque without sacrificing gas mileage and emission rating! Quieter engines. Make moon-roof tilt.
