I've owned about 35-40 cars (to be modest) and this is by far the best one I've ever had. 1995 Accord EX 5 Speed Manual. Cost to maintain is next to nothing yet it has just about all amenities you would get from a Base model today (power windows, locks, cruise control, A/C, tachometer, intermittent wipers, alloy wheels, etc.) I average about 30-32 mpg. The comfort is incredible, the easy of driving is amazing. Efortless shifting (stick), turning, breaking. Zero rust (spent most of its life in Texas, now Illinois). People can't believe it's a 1995 and when I tell/show them that is has 249 THOUSAND miles; their mouths drop. It looks and drives like a 50K car. It doesn't leak anything, nothing makes noise, no ticking, knocking, nothing. Knock on wood, I plan to go to 350K and pretty much drive her until she doesn't want to go anymore which I have a feeling won't be anytime soon.
The 1995 Honda Accord EX Sedan is the best car to have if you are a first time car owner. I actually own this and I am in love with this car mainly because it is excellent I gas, especially if you are a city driver with a billion things to do. My Honda Accord has great mileage. It has 190, 000 miles on it, and it is a great amount of miles for an almost 20 year car. It is an automatic vehicle with an engine of 4 cylinder, VTEC, 2.2 Liters . It holds about 11 gallons of unleaded gas so you dont have to pay more for the other types of gas, because its engine is perfectly fine with the unleaded. Also, my car came in a red color. It has 4 doors with automatic windows. It comes in handy while dr
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.
This 95' Accord EX automatic is simply amazing. With only 130k, the engine (f22b1 VTEC) pushes like itz at 40k. Transmission be slipping, but futher review of the fluid whoever owned it previously did not follow the manual and keep Honda's ATF z1 fluid (which is the only fluid you can put in a honda transmisson for it to act properly) (not any at yor local auto store). After fixing that problem, and dropping about $1200 into some much need tuning (rotors, calipers, drive axles, water pump, starter, alternator, sensors, radiator and battery), it was totally a brand new car running smooth like it was built today.
Greatest Features of this vechile are handling(turning is really smooth), acceleration(for a SOHC[single head cam] it gets up quick), and of course comfort(inside these cars is very nice)
Simple and easily maintance to keep these cars lasting forever.
*Transmission Fluild=Honda ATF z1 (which means go to your local honda dealership and
pick it up there)
*If your changing your timing belt, change your water pump
*If you having shift problems while engaging in gears and your thinking transmission problems ... check your mounts first
*Stop putting water in your radiator, coolant keeps your engine cool and protects the metal, water just boils when hot and causes to rust inside your engine killing its life.
*if your changing spark plugs, change your air filter, inspect brakes, and if its time change the oil(fuel efficient) $$$$$
My family has owned several Honda's and I've had a couple also. I picked this Accord LX 2.2 automatic up as an inbetween car. Sort of a beater, but it's proved to be much more than that. I got it with 170k miles on the clock and it's really solid and tight. This car has no wind noise or squeeks nor rattles. It's quite amazing really. The gas mileage is also superb at well over 30mpg. While it's not going to win any drag races, It's an excellent commuter and highway vehicle. Evertthing works on it and it's very comfortable.
Mileage, reliability, solid tight ride.
timing chain verus belt but they've done this on newer models.
