1998 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car in 98.Engine light came on at 80,000 miles, catalytic converter had to be replaced, cost over $800. Summer of 2005 the trans failed at about 134,000 miles. Took it to the Dealer (paramus), and the service guy referred me to a transmission place in Ramsey nj to rebuild the trans. They rebuilt the tran, cost $3200, gave me 15000 mile or a year warranty, car felt great, drove like a new car. 5 months later, trans started slipping. Took it back to the shop, by this time the 15,000 mile warranty had ran out. The guy claimed he replaced sensors, charged me again, $180, and said he needs to open the tran again, told him no, he said the car won't last 9 months. Same problem, 5 yrs now.


Worst Features

Honda needs to make reliable Transmissions.

1998 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I have always loved Hondas, this is my 5th and I could not be happier. The car has a some miles but I know that it still has many more in it. I am still getting 32+ MPG with over 200K and the car is amazingly reliable. The leather is a great addition as well as the power options. The stereo system is great for stock and these cars can move if you really need it to. If you stay up on your maintenance these cars will go forever! Everyone should own a Honda!


Best Features

Leather, Stereo, 35 MPG, Sun Roof, Keyless Entry, Lots of space, 5 spd trans, Brakes, Performance


Worst Features

Better paint?

This is one of the best car from Honda. It is very reliable, easy to handle. Everything works although its a 12 years old car! All I have done to the car is oil changes, and tire rotation!

Comfortable design!

Too late to recommend!

1998 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

We are getting ready to pass down my 1998 Honda Accord 4 door LX to my 17yr old son. This car has been very reliable and still looks great. Haven't had any problems and only needed routine maintenance. We are probably going to be replacing it with a new Civic Coupe. Going to miss my Accord but feel good about passing this on to my son because I have a piece of mind that he will be driving a very reliable car.


Best Features

Size (big enough for 4 adults), looks great, fuel economy


Worst Features

Gas cap release doesn't open gas cap far enough

Review

I bought this car June 2007 with 153,000 miles. I was nervous buying a car with this many miles but the engine ran so smoothly a went ahead and bought it. I've used this car to drive to school and to deliver pizza in for the last 2 3/4 years and is now has 237,000 miles. I personally love this car and there are a lot of vehicles i wouldn't trade for it if they only had 70,000 miles. Rides very smoothly and still feels athletic with the VTEC V6. Everyone thinks its a piece of junk because its plagued with the peeling paint but i just laugh it off when their nice and shiny cars break down. Even with the high mileage it's still the best car I've owned.


Best Features

V6...I'm a believer in buying the v6's because you keep your RPM's lower during acceleration (hopefully) Leather...has saved the day after some rainy outdoor concerts Sporty look for a 4 door sedan, I don't like the rounded newer models. Moon roof, Alloy wheels, steering wheel radio control


Worst Features

Transmission is beginning to shift a little harder but it does have 237,000 miles Starter went out at 200,000 miles due to constant use while delivering pizza. Paint job looks so bad I don't even wash it.
