1997 Honda Accord Special Edition 4dr Sedan

Review

My Accord was plagued with nagging problems. Among them peeling paint on front bumper; electric windows opened and closed at a snail's pace and squealed loudly as they closed; driver's side electric window regulator replaced twice; cruise control couldn't maintain its set speed to save its life; auto transmission shifted roughly and slipped; serious squeaks and rattles in dash; mediocre gas mileage (25 MPG). This was my third and, likely, last Honda product! I passed up more exciting styling and better handling cars for what I thought would be flawless quality! I ended up with a soul-less, problem-plagued nuisance!

Favorite Features

Low cost of ownership. Michelin tires were great--lasted nearly 70,000 miles.

Suggested Improvements

Smoother automatic transmission, improve quality. Add some soul and driving excitement!
