1996 Honda Accord LX V6 4dr Sedan
Grandpa bought this car off the lot, and did all routine maintainence at home. Lived at 8,000ft and saw winters of below 0F. Lives with me in summer heat of 120F+ and with 208k miles on it now, still doing all maintaining at home shop. The only problem is a failed transmission just two weeks ago. Such a great car, super reliable, has been across the country and back and on many long road trips, up mountain roads, through the woods, through rivers (literally). treated this car like a truck. NEVER broke down for any reason until now, and worth the money to rebuild the tranny. Would recommend this car to anyone. Just treat her right and she'll do the same
Interior is roomy, sun/moon rough is great, steering is lovely, brakes last a long time, heater works fantastically
The shifting has always been a little rough, and she would downshift unnecessarily at slight inclines. A/C has always been a weenie, even when recharged, I just don't ever use it.
