1998 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car last Friday because my last Accord had been wrecked and totaled out by the insurance. And so far I absolutely love this car! It is way more nice than my car and it has every option possible! Upgraded sound, leather, auto trans., spoiler, chrome wheels, etc. And is amazing. Has been very well taken care of and I would recommend this car to everyone!


Best Features

Spoiler, wheels, leather, moonroof!


Worst Features

It could have a little more torque, but other than that it is pretty quick. My mom's '05 is much faster although only 10 more hp. (160 vs. 150)

1998 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car with 36,000 miles on it 9 y/0. It now has 160,000. My car has all the upgrades, sunroof, leather, controls on steering wheel etc. Had to replace transmission 3 y/o for $2500 and just replaced the oil pan. Other than that no problems what so ever. It's fun to drive and love the way it looks. I have had no problems with my paint but it is white. Will keep it to pass on to my son.


Best Features

Sunroof, looks, leather, stereo, power. Has V6 that kicks over my boyfriend's Mercedes Kompressor any day.


Worst Features

None. Am really happy with the car.

Review

IMO, this model is the apex of the accord. Excellent use of interior and trunk space, sensible but attractive design, good all around performance from the 150 hp 4. Well equipped and comfortable. Kids are getting too big to fit three across in the back, so need a larger car. only 103k and runs great. Paint bad, clear coat peeled, my only complaint. Expensive to repaint well, stay away from the forest green color. But i think Honda has gone downhill with the accord, making it larger, softer, and less attractive with each new iteration.


Best Features

What a wonderful combination of comfort and driving enjoyment. Rev the engine, row through the 5 spd, floor it around the exit ramp, and cut through traffic. Love the old Hondas!


Worst Features

Paint peeling, awful testament to Honda's declining quality, this was the tip of the iceberg. Green was bad color in those years. No recall or anything-it's owner fault, of course.

Review

Has been a great car for us. I have heard about the transmission problems with these model years. Our car has 162K miles and no problems. Guess we are blessed. Car is fun to drive. Passing it down to my teen twins to drive. Only problems was an intake manifold clogging that causes the check engine light to come on. It was a hassle to get that light off. replaced belt tensioner and alternator. no other problems. tires are a bit expensive for this model. Electronically everything works great. car body dents easily though. Plan on driving it to 300k or more.


Best Features

Sunroof, climate control (for a 1998 its great). sports car feel. easy to park. Gas mileage not as good as a 4 cylinder but I got 27 mpg on a long road trip driving 75 mph


Worst Features

Body dents easily. I guess they all do. This car had all the options at the time except heated seats and mirrors.
