Ain't No BMW
By Fudbutter on
1999 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan
This car was delivered new in July 1999. After 9 years and 139,000 miles it has proved to be reliable to get us from point A to point B consistently, but over that time, the cruise control conked out and she leaks oil (About a quart a fill up) despite diligent maintenance. The body has a bit of rust and many nasty door dings. Other than that, no major issues. Brakes and timing belt have already been replaced but tranny has showed no issues. It is used as a the car to get us to the city, airports or anyplace we would be uncomfortable taking our precious roadster. All in all, it hasn't been the "bulletproof" transportation that it was supposed to be, but it has never left us stranded.
Basic transportation. Park it anywhere. Makes our other car seem faster and much more fun to drive.
'99 car that has been improved in 3 subsequent generations but is now way too big
