I just got this car yesterday and I love it. It has 189,xxx miles on it and runs amazing still. Only one weird thing is that it only has two cup holders and only in the front seat. But it's an excellent car! It's also my first car and only paid 1800 for it.
Everything and especially think its cool that to honk the horn you just press a button on the steering wheel.
I got this car about three months ago and all i can say is WOW! I cant believe how well it runs for 221,000 miles. It has leather interior, sunroof, and all the things you would need in a car. The only thing that bothered me was that the transmission shifted rough from the time we bought it, and that concerned me because i need this car for 4 years of college. I took it to two shops and one shop said it was dying and there was nothing i could do. The other shop said it was fine, well i wasnt convinced on either diagnosis, but i drove it anyway. Today i took it to the Honda dealer and had them do 1 tranny fluid drain and refill...well, IT RUNS LIKE A NEW CAR NOW! use Honda fluid ONLY!
everything!! This car is almost as reliable as the sunrise. I am hoping to get 350,000+ miles out of it. Im at 221,000 now.
Gas mileage, i only get about 17 city, but the inexpensive price we got it for makes up for that. and insurance is inexpensive on it too =)
I have owned 5 cars in my lifetime and the 1995 Honda Accord is by far the best. With 225,000 miles on the car, it still gets 26 miles to the gallon with the 2.7 L V6. Handles outstanding and still drives fairly well considering the time and mileage on it. It has been a work horse and I will soon pass it to my kids after the second timing belt replacement. I have owned the car since 1997, having purchased it with 16K miles. The quality of the car far exceeds the Ford and GM cars that I owned. Only the Subaru that I own is close but still not as good.
V-6 engine, steering
Lot's of 1995 accords have the same rust spot on the rear fender by the gas cap.
Bought LX w/37,000 miles in 4/2005. The prior owners were about 70 years old and traded the '95 in for a 2005. I have 97 Explorer Sport w/SOHC too. My girlfriend has a 89 Accord and it won't die. My LX has a V6... it feels like I'm sitting on a magic carpet, smooth ride, lots of power, hard to keep under 60. Expect I'll get my 1st ticket ever for speeding soon ! Only problem was with the SRS system, dealer said on the '95 the SRS system usually needs service and is short lived. It's costly, like $700, but dealer split 50/50 with me under 6 month warranty. But all in all this car is exceptionally designed, and a joy to drive...my Explorer sits alot more these days !
V6 engine is awesome, smoooth, powerful
Bigger cup holder, hey this car is so well designed it's, all I can complain about.
