1991 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I've owned my '91 Accord EX for close to 10 years (I'm the 2nd owner), and have logged close to 200k of its 243k miles. This is the epitome of reliable, inexpensive transportation, with a good touch of class thrown in. Everything runs as smoothly as it did the day I bought it. No problems with body integrity or rust (although I do live in the snow-free South), and the sunroof has never had a leak. I have had a problem with the trunk leaking from time to time, however. Excellent brakes and handling, though the automatic transmission hasn't always been the smoothest-shifting. Fuel economy is good--I get about 26 mpg on the highway, around 22 in the city. A lot to love about this car!


Best Features

Body style/looks, overall build quality, logical instrument/control placement and design, brakes, inexpensive to own (service, parts, etc).


Worst Features

Seals around trunk and tail-light housings, smoother-shifting transmission.

Review

I've been driving this car for 13 years. I've replaced the timing belt twice as a preventitive measure and kept the oil changed anywhere from 3500-4000 mile intervals. I switched to Synthetic at 200,000 miles and still only lose 1/2 quart between oil changes and that appears to be through gaskets. Original clutch, alternator, A/C, starter, you name it. This car has never "broke down". My daughter rode in this car at 3 years of age and now she's driving it. I should have gone with the automatic trans but couldn't afford it at the time.


Best Features

Reliability, space (passenger and cargo), and gas milage. Why drive a shoebox for an additional 4 or 5 mpg?


Worst Features

Remove the area on the dash where passengers can place "stuff". Things in the passenger compartment should be stored where they will be secured.

Review

Amazingly competent and RELIABLE ride. I purchased this car with 155,000 miles on the clock. It's now sitting on 185K, no major repairs whatsoever, still in excellent shape except for needing a motor mount (not so bad at 185K miles) and faded paint (13 years of non-garaged life take their toll). This car has been great to us, amazingly reliable, engine still pulls strong and transmission shifts smoothly. Decently fun to drive, comfortable, nice steering and handling, handsome if somewhat boring exterior. Great car, no regrets whatsoever. See you at 250,000!


Best Features

Reliability. Reliability. Reliability. Capable handling and comfort. Does just about everything well. Good mileage with acceptable power. Did I mention reliability?


Worst Features

Can you make the motor mounts last 250K like the rest of the car? Manifests itself as a shaky idle. Stock sound system is mediocre. Car could use a shot of personality.
