1990 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


With over 150,000 miles on it, our
Honda's still running strong, and the
steering is still tight and nimble.
Uses zero quarts of oil between
changes. Timing belt needs to be
changed at regular intervals, and the
slightest warping of your rotors will
cause your steering wheel to shimmy
going down the road.

In the rust belt, the rear wheel well
area rusts out even if the rest of your
Honda's bohdy is in great shape. Water
gets trapped in here with no way out.
Fortunately, our local body shop cut
out the rust and welded in new pre-
formed sheet metal on both sides for
under $800.

Best Features

Turn the key, and it goes.

Worst Features

Rear defroster auto-shutoff failed - back window shattered when it overheated. Minor items: Power antenna (swapped for a $6 universal), tail lights separated themselves from trunk, causing it to take on water in the trunk (Permatex), silver coating flaked off of OEM hubcaps
