I bought this car as a 25th b-day to
myself new and yesterday we traded it
in for a later model Accord. I didn't
realize how great it was till it was
time to say goodbye... I never had a
problem with it, my only complaint was
that I didn't think it was great in
the rain (tended to hydroplane, maybe
it was the manual transmission...) and
felt the brakes weren't as powerful as
they could've been. We were looking
at other cars, but realized you can
NEVER NEVER go wrong w/a Honda!!! The
only day it didn't start was when it
needed a new battery (74K miles)!!!
5-speed transmission was very peppy,
liked the interior lights, very good
paintjob (unlike our Audi), EXTREMELY
Stronger brakes and I would say make
the doors smaller but they did that
with the 98 model.
