Wish I Could Keep It

Vehicle1997 Honda Accord LX 4dr Wagon
ReviewThe only reason I am buying a new car, and turning the beloved '97 LX wagon over to a relative, is that my leg can no longer handle any clutch and the car has a standard transmission. Otherwise, I'd pay what it took to restore! The windows are slow, and some plastic pieces broke (holding visor and rear cargo space cover). Hubcaps' paint peeled but new ones weren't expensive. Has had good mechanical attention. Timing belt replacement at recommended mileage was difficult per an excellent mechanic who said he won't do it after the next 100,000 miles. Had 2 axle boots replaced, but the originals might have been weakened by being hit in the side by 2 big deer almost simultaneously. Tough car.
Best FeaturesPerformance, endurance, styling, color, rear-view visibility, resale value.
Worst FeaturesQuality and durability of plastic parts, window power, hubcaps, etc. need to match what's under the hood.
