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.

Review

I bought this car new, and have had it for 11 years and 147000 miles. We've never had a day of trouble. It's required just basic maintenance. It still drives great and I don't worry about commuting in it.


Best Features

Road handling is wonderful, now matter the weather.

Review

Bought my '96 brand new and never regretted it. In over 145K miles, only needed to replace alternator and plug wires. This car never failed to start, the fit and finish was excellent, and it was a solid, well built car. Some idiot decided to steal it, so I no longer have one, but I just wanted to let everyone know what a great car they are. Have not done the research, but I hope that the new ones have kept all the quality features of my '96.


Best Features

Quality materials, fit and finish, and reliability, especially in Colorado rain and snow.


Worst Features

My only regret was the fact that it was rather a "plain vanilla" sort of car. Too many silver ones...I was always trying to get into someone else's in the parking lot!...Honda needs to revamp their car designs! New ones still look the same! Otherwise, no complaints at all.
