1997 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe
Review
My wife had one of these for her first new car. Very reliable, easy to maintain and drive. Mileage was 30MPG combined, which was exceptional. A few minor problems: clutch start interlock switch (fixed myself) and a/c condenser kept getting stopped up with leaves and spilling water on floor (dealer wanted $200 to install a screen to keep this from happening). Fairly fun to drive and reasonably fast for a basic car. We had the coupe, but should have spent the money on the sedan so we could get more use out of it after we had kids.
Favorite Features
Extra-crisp 5 speed transmission (reminded me of the early Acura Legends). Low cost of operation. Large trunk, reasonably comfortable. Probably should have never gotten rid of this, it was a good car. Overall simplicity was a nice departure from today's cars. I wish my 07 Odyssey was this good.
Suggested Improvements
Better power windows (too slow) and better engineered A/C system. Paint quality could have been better.
