200K & It Won't Quit
By kSLC on
1996 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan
Mechanically and with looks, this car is incredible. Over 200K and no oil leaks and looks like new. Doesn't burn oil, doesn't drip, doesn't show any sign of stopping any time soon. Worth twice what Detroit was putting out during that same time! I don't count myself as a Honda nut, but honestly, the engineering of this car is incredible. Planned obsolescence be damned. :)
Reliability, reliability, reliability. Gas mileage is also amazing. On long drives I can get over 30mpg easily!
Comfort is the only weak spot here. I'm 6'3" and it's tight. Also, the interior is too noisy in my opinion. Also, window locks should lock out others but not the driverís panel - that's always been irritating to me. Also no FOB.
