1996 Honda Accord Coupe EX 2dr Coupe


Review

Well, Hondas are known to be reliable and this one is no different! I've owned it for past 5 years at 42,000 miles and other than AC problem and window problem, nothing major.


Favorite Features

Very fun to drive with beefier tires.


Suggested Improvements

Get some good tires and you are good to go!

Review

I bought this car as the 3rd owner in July of 2002. I purchased it for $2500 b/c the seller had put 144,500 miles on it and dealerships were only going to give her $2k for a trade in. I have done minimal work on this car and it has been very reliable. Routinely gets me 25+mpg. Long highway trips will net me 30 mpg. Great gas mileage.Just realized this car is still on original timing belt so that is getting replaced this week. 175,000 mils on original timing belt! wow!Wish the car had more power, but it gets the job done


Favorite Features

great gas mileage, reliable, requires minimal maintenance


Suggested Improvements

more power, car is S-L-O-W. 130 hp for this size car is sad.

Review

I bought this car last month from a private owner. When started, the car makes a lot of noise (is it normal??) Runs quitely till you reach about 60mph. Drags initially but after about 30mph, runs very smoothly. High road/ wind noise. Excellent braking & manueverability at high speed. Leather seats are firm but doesnot provide a good lumbar support. Too early to comment about reliabilty. Overall, great peace of mind.


Suggested Improvements

Noise, Noise & Noise (from everywhere). Speed. Does anyone know a reliable performance parts mechanic in NJ?

Review

I bought this car for one year already, I never go to auto repairs since I bought this car unless oil changes. This car runs great even it's 85000 mileages, I believe it's a reliable type of car, and doesn't cause you much time and money on the maintainances. Think about it.
