The last car I had was a 1996 Honda Accord LX sedan. I loved that car... unfortunately a guy pulling out of a parking lot in a truck didnt share that same love. To make a long story short, I wound up with this 1999 Honda Accord EX-L. It performs very well with a lot of peppiness. I get about 30-35 mpg on the highway and 20-25 mpg in town. The car is comfortable to drive in and is very spacious. The bottomline is that you cant beat a Honda for value, performance, and integrity.
My favorites are the 2.3L V-TEC SOHC I4 engine, the spacious (and suprisingly luxourious)interior, and the gas mileage.
To be honest there arent many things wrong with the car. The only thing I would say is that the transmission (the infamous honda automatic) needs to still be impoved on.
