The perfect commuter car
By Awry13 on
Vehicle1992 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe
ReviewI bought this car in 1998 and it had
31,000 miles on it. It has 239,000
now. Right after I bought it the
distributor had to be replaced, then
the alternator at about 120,000 miles.
Other than that, normal maintenance.
Still averages about 28 mpg between
city and highway driving. It has a
manual transmission and I have never
replaced the clutch. In the next month
I will be getting my second set of half
shafts (driveshafts) put in. Then I
will be selling it in favor of a newer
Accord. By all accounts the newer
models have only gotten better.
Best FeaturesMost comfortable driver's seat I have ever experienced. No annoying problems that usually plague older cars. The power windows still work well, the gauges all work, doors still close tightly, quality interior materials.
Worst FeaturesThe stereo is crap on this car, and my 2000 CRV so I replaced both with after- market gear. Since this is the only area Honda has failed to improve, they should outsource their sound systems to Bose, Sony, Harmon Kardon, Infiniti, etc.
