1997 Honda Accord Special Edition 4dr Sedan

Review

This Accord was my very first car and is an excellent first car for any high schooler. It's cute and sporty while still being practical and functional, especially on the gas mileage. I bought it at 29,000 and the only problems have been mostly small ones-- the power windows are sometimes slow, the A/C and defogging are sometimes flaky and I also have "phantom locks"-- whenever I lock my car, manually or by remote, the locks continue to make a sound as though they are locking. But I have never had a major problem with my Accord and I always feel safe in it.

Favorite Features

I love the overall look of the Accord from the year '97, more so than the '98- '02 models. Great cargo space for a college student like me. Great gas mileage on the highway. Comfy seats, and just a good solid-handling ride. The gas and brakes respond well.

Suggested Improvements

Definitely the A/C, defogger, power windows and power locks need to be addressed. I'm guessing they have been improved in recent years.
