1998 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan


Review

Our '98 has 375,000 kms. We have had it for 7 yrs and love driving it. We have to retire it finally because of rusted out frame and gas tank from so much salt on the roads of Canada.
We have done very little to it except to replace all the brake and gas lines, again due to rusting.
Still gets excellent gas mileage( we were getting as much as 44 mpg).

So if you have 175000 - 200000 kms on your car, don't give up hope, there's plenty left.

1998 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

This car was handed down to me in 2009, although it's been in the family since 2001. It currently has 175k miles on it. Hoping for many more.
Advantages: The build quality is fantastic. The power features still work like new, and everything in the interior has the feel of quality. Even the leather still looks nice. The car is very comfortable and stable on the highway. Steering is tight and suspension is firm. Also has a surprisingly huge trunk.
Disadvantage: The notorious auto transmission. Was replaced around 110k, and if this one fails, it'll probably be the end of the car. That's a shame, cause otherwise it's been great to me. Just wish it had the manual trans instead.

1998 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is great. It is the perfect size. Don't let it fool you because it is actually very roomy and has a large/tall trunk. Honda put a lot of thought into this car. Great first car. Safe also, I had a minor accident and it held up very well.


Best Features

Gas mileage is good, 14 gallon tank usually around $45 to fill up and on the highway this thing sips gas.


Worst Features

I know these have tranny problems but mine was redone before I got it, also the paint seems to fade on these but get it repainted and youll have a beautiful car.

1998 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 98 accord in 2002. it had about 30,000 miles on it. was kept in great shape by previous owner..it is now december 2011 and i still own this great car.
i am at 175,000 miles now with not 1 major problem in 10 years of owning it. still runs nice and smooth, quiet.
i can trust and rely on this car to start and run great anytime. even in the dead of winter, will start up no problem. only thing ive ever had done major is replace the catalytic converter and starter. on my second set of brake pads in 10 years. i get 3 month oil changes and once a year maintenance checkup every year.
im sure it would last another 10 years easy. great car, will miss it when i dont have it her anymore!

Review

bought this car on Feb 1998, still looks neat and flashy, the A/C is still fantastic although here in Saudi; the weather temperature can easily hit/exceed (120'F).
Never made an accident, as result; the original paint is still shiny.
I own a 2005 Volvo S80 T5 yet I still rely on the accord for long trips between cities.
Engine+ automatic Transmission still original.
My friend has a 2009 Accord 4/cyl Aut. and some how got in a drag race with him, surprisingly, my 98'accord stayed nose to nose till we hit 200KM/H (125M/H) which is good enough for me.


Best Features

smooth ride, slick front/side look, perfect seating position, driver viewing traffic++, stability when driving on high speed.


Worst Features
