I bought my Honda Accord new in March 1996. She has been a great car and currently has 137,600 miles. Besides regular maintenance, I had to change the master cylinder at 115K miles, CV joints/boots at 125K miles, and the distributor at 137K miles. I have had a total of $800 (parts and labor) in repairs. I highly recommend Honda Accords as this is my second Accord. I sold my first Accord with 196K miles (which was still running fine when I sold it).
I really (really) like the body style. Gas mileage is good. I average 27 mpg (mixed city/highway).
Road noise is louder than I like, but I have been dealing with it for 13.5 years.
