1996 Honda Accord Sedan LX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

Grandpa bought this car off the lot, and did all routine maintainence at home. Lived at 8,000ft and saw winters of below 0F. Lives with me in summer heat of 120F+ and with 208k miles on it now, still doing all maintaining at home shop. The only problem is a failed transmission just two weeks ago. Such a great car, super reliable, has been across the country and back and on many long road trips, up mountain roads, through the woods, through rivers (literally). treated this car like a truck. NEVER broke down for any reason until now, and worth the money to rebuild the tranny. Would recommend this car to anyone. Just treat her right and she'll do the same


Favorite Features

Interior is roomy, sun/moon rough is great, steering is lovely, brakes last a long time, heater works fantastically


Suggested Improvements

The shifting has always been a little rough, and she would downshift unnecessarily at slight inclines. A/C has always been a weenie, even when recharged, I just don't ever use it.

Review

I've had this car in my family going on 14 years now, bought it brand new in 96. She's going on 300,000KM by this spring, she's seen summers in 99 and the worst of Canadian winters in 01-02. I've done my best to baby her (oil changes every 5000Km, routine maintenance and a few new cheap Honda parts here and there). She's quicker then most cars on the road, drives incredible and cheap on gas. What more can you ask for in a car.


Favorite Features

Speed, gas mileage, and reliability. Just knowing that in Canada's minus 35 degree snow storms she starts up warms and runs like a champ.


Suggested Improvements

Review

What a great car! It looks great, the V6 is a blast to drive, and with 70K miles on mine, it still feels, looks, and drives like it's 6 months old!


Favorite Features

Engine, Ride.
