Real Honda satisfaction

Review

Simply a great, dependable car that drives very well. Accord currently has 113000 miles, I've owned it for the last 40000. Outside of routine maintenance (tune-up, timing belt, etc.) only expense was a faulty emission sensor. As with every Honda I've owned, the gas mileage has been better than advertised. I consistently get 30mpg+ with this Accord. I can't imagine owning a different brand of car.

Review

I got this baby when it was barely broken in at 25K miles. Now the car has 142K and so far, it cost me $300 in repair (muffler and tubing, recently) O2 sensor was replaced at 110K under warranty from Honda but even if I had to pay for it, it would have been under $1000 total in repair over the life of the car. This car still rides well and gives me 26M/Gal in Mixed hway and city driving. (during winter. now a days about 28M/Gal) I am hoping to drive until 200K. That will be coming in 3 more years.. :)

Great car,the wife really enjoys the driveability. The only problem has been at 81K the balance shaft oil seal failed and dumped all the oil out. Honda repaired as a defect with no cost.

Review

Recieved this car recently as my first car, and have had this car in my family for years, and I love it! You can never go wrong with a Honda! Performance is still up-to-par with most modern cars. Take my advice, BUY A HONDA!!

Bland but Reliable

Review

Been driving the wife's Accord LX for almost 2 years now. Only has 65,XXX miles. Always there for you, just do the maintenance. It's boring as hell though after driving a '92 Camaro RS V8. 2.2 4Cyl sounds like a diesel even after valve adjustment. Great highway MPG (Over 30 with the 4 Cyl) Get the V6 if you are looking. Better performance. Why is A/T shifter able to shift from Overdrive to Drive at all times? I think my wife was screwed over by the dealer as the paint on the left rear door is different (no accidents either).

No problems...

Review

The Accord is a great car. It has no real faults except for its horsepower deficiency, and its not-so-smooth auto transmission. It's fun to drive, just not as fun when pushing the gas to the floor as say, a 2003 Accord 4-cyl, or especially the V-6. Great economy, ample room, and great build quality overshadow these few shortcomings.

Cost of Maintaining is crazy!

Review

Burns oil faster then gas (Broken ring $3000) Timing belt at 100,000 miles $400. Universal joints $400. Get a Saturn (Steel Timing belt). when useing the drink holder forget about using the casset player. Lights are way under par mosture-fog over, Tempature control involves opening window, Parking break button sticks, Oil cap almost impossible to remove without burning fingers, Bogs down on hills with curse control on, The trunk is way to small and laying the back seats down involves trying to hold a spring lock key open while pulling the seat down?, Poor rear visabiliy, Crappy radio, and you will bump your head getting in. HONDA ALL HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!

Still My Car of Choice

Review

This is the second Honda that I've owned. The car is fun to drive, although it doesn't seem quite as powerful as my 1990 EX. The A/C condenser fan quit at 67,000 miles. Cost of replacement: $230. Just last week, I lost the timing belt at 72,200 miles. I assumed that my '96 had the same timing belt interval as my '90, which was 90,000 miles. Unfortunately, the interval for this engine is 60,000 miles instead! Surprisingly, no engine damage occurred. For some unknown reason, the coil and igniter gave up at the same time I lost the timing belt, so I'm looking at a grand total of almost $1000 in repairs (I am waiting for the new igniter to arrive as I write this).
