1994 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe

Review

I bought my accord new and have put over 200,000 miles on it since college. It has been extremely reliable with a very concerning exception. The lower ball joint in front end has failed 3 times causing the wheel to disengage and the car to skid off the road in a shower of sparks. It has happened on both the right and left front ends. Honda corp and the various mechanics involved couldn't pinpoint a cause. I have never abused the car and I am the only driver. Other than that, I haven't replaced anything other than tires, batteries, brakes, and pipes. It has it's original clutch!

Favorite Features

It is not a performance car by any means but the V-tec engine and manual transmission make it fun to drive. I also love the moonroof.

Suggested Improvements

Safety. Maybe beefier lower ball joints would keep the wheels from coming off when the car reaches its golden years. The suspension and handling have always been a little anemic.
