By far my favorite car I've owned
By tabby on
1997 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan
My poor accord had it's last ride 5 days ago. I got broadsided by a huge lifted Chevy Silverado truck on my drivers side door (the truck was going 60 mph on impact) and I walked away from the accident, and only ended up with some stitches (from the broken window glass) and a black eye. The police said they'd never seen a compact car hold up that well in that severe of a crash, and in most cars I would have been dead. And to top it off, the Chevy truck had minimal damage but wouldn't start, and my crushed Honda still started, drove, and all the electrical still worked. Furthermore, I have not had any problems ever with this car, nor had my mom who bought it new. Next car will be another Honda.
Ran great, no weird noises or rattles. Very solid. Didn't hear outside noise like other compact cars. Fun to commute to LA with.
If anything, better quality interior. My godmother had to replace it fairly soon after she got it.
