1996 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe


Review

When you get in your car, you should expect it to work. Also, with routine and preventative maintenance, you should expect NOTHING to go wrong with the car. My Honda has been running strong for 3 straight years. I changed out the plugs, hoses, added a new muffler and oxygen sensor and at 174,000 miles it is running perfectly. I will definitely buy another Honda when the time comes, but I plan to run mine into the ground.


Best Features

Moon roof is flawless after 12 years


Worst Features

Make carjackers not want to steal them (only slightly kidding)

This is an economical car! Very reliable. Costs for repairs is expensive; suspension and steering was damaged prior to purchasing, costing over $2,500 in repairs if not more. Over all a wonderful, money saving car.Will never get rid of it. It's my 3rd Honda!

Sunroof, cruise control, automatic, wagon!


Worst Features

Cd player, mine always has an error! No matter how many times I took it to the dealership for repairs...

Review

These cars are all they are cracked up to be. Starts everytime. Change the oil and the engine will run 300,000+ miles. Do not be fooled into thinking you won't spend a dime on maintenence! Things do break like every other car. CV shafts, ball joints, brake rotors, etc. Which by the way, before buying this car (94-97 Accords) get the front rotors checked!! If they are bad (pulsation in the steering wheel) knock $400 right off the price of the car. Or ask that they be replaced before purchasing!


Best Features

30+ MPG. Solid reliabilty.


Worst Features

They have already fixed it, but the ability change the rotors without removing the suspension.
