Best Car I Ever Owned too!
By Automaniac on


1990 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe


Bought the 5-speed from first owner on 2/16, 68.9k miles on it, for $6.5k (down from 7.5) now 133k hard miles, cold starts, short distances, snowbelt. Could afford any new car, but was thinking of going overseas then, and did not want to take depreciation hit. Engine is a jewel, never had ANY problem. Drove cross country, DC to Seattle to Long Beach CA and back to DC, summer 03, few problems, top MPG. (32-36 hwy, at 65-85 mph). Can cruise all day @ 90 mph in utter comfort. Rust behind the rear wheels. Seldom braked down, but parts cost too much (timing belt, brakes, distributor, fuel pump, each $500 or so). Still, best car I ever owned, and low cost, due to rare failures and high quality.

Best Features

Shifter is precise and a joy to use. Gauges (clear, excellent), overall quality, clean styling of coupe! Plenty of room in back and front, drove x-country, hauled a ton of stuff. Dependability, reliability, durability!

Worst Features

Many parts (timing belts, windshields, brakes, distributors, fuel pumps) should cost MUCH less. Toyota Camrys cost less for similar parts. Annoying antenna goes up and down unecessarily, even when you just use the tape or CD. Rust is unacceptable in such a high- quality car.
