Very Reliable Car
By Kyaw Naing on
1998 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan
I've owned Honda Accords for 15 years and I'm on my 5th Accord. They all were good cars (except the very 1st 1979). I sold my 2nd Accord at 200K miles. The 98 Accord by far the best car. It has about 120K miles and has been very reliable. Still drives like new. There was no major mechanical problem so far. However, I had occasional check engine warnings mostly from a few bad oxygen sensors. I took those warnings seriously when the car was new. But lately, I just ignored them. To my surprise the warnings just disappeared by themselves. Just hoping that the car will quit on me soon so that I've an excuse to buy a new one. But seems like, it'll be another 10yrs for me to get a new car!
Great handling at high-speed. Feel 80mph at 100mph. Very reliable.
Slow take-off (for 4 cylinders with auto-transmission). Not much fun to drive.
