Solid car, check the brakes!!
By Gregg on
1996 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan
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!
30+ MPG. Solid reliabilty.
They have already fixed it, but the ability change the rotors without removing the suspension.
