4 cyl engine with 5 sp manual transmission. Purchased from dealer as a service loaner vehicle with 8K miles. Now at 106K miles with absolutely no problems in 7 years of ownership. My second Accord, this one is just as reliable as my '83 was. Reliably gets 35 mpg on highway. No service visits until 105K when timing belt/water pump are scheduled for replacement. I would very highly recommend these cars to others.
Overall high quality coupled with outstanding reliability.
ABS brakes were not available for this year, would be nice to have. Road noise at highway speeds inside the cabin has been higher than expected.
