1994 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car as a commuter car. It's essentially a nicely styled economy car. The 4 cylinder VTEC is decent in power (compared to other 4 cylinders from this era), but it's no racecar (as many people like to drive these like one). The interior isn't all that comfortable. The controls are well laid out, with a huge backseat as far as coupes go. The interior benefits from this generation's extra width; I've owned an 89 Accord LX-i in the past and this comes across as quite spacious in comparison. Large trunk, well laid out engine compartment. Good mileage (I get around 28 but I drive mostly highway), fairly reliable. Rusts like crazy so keep the body clean.


Best Features

The exterior design STILL looks modern. People can't believe this car was designed in '94. Nice control lay-out. More spacious than previous Accords. Good road visibility.


Worst Features

The body panels rust so easily and the seats aren't comfortable. Some interior controls look plain cheap and toy-like. Seat belts tend to stretch horribly over time and get stuck in the doors (in the coupe). Auto trans shifts about 10x harder than it need to and searches for gears a lot, buy manual.

1994 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

The '94 Accord was a wonderful car. I had it for 10 years. Unfortunately I crashed it last November. It was a great car. When I crashed it it had 230,000 miles on it and still ran fine, we didn’t start it up for 5 months, and when we did it didn’t have a problem. It got terrific gas mileage. Edmunds report 22/28, but that’s ridiculous. I got 28/34, and one time on the free way going out of state I got 42 MPG, hondas are truly amazing with gas mileage. It was my first honda but since then I/my family has bought 5. I don't understand why people buy anything else. They are the best non-luxury car out there.


Best Features

Handling, gas mileage, long lasting, reliable.


Worst Features

It was sort of small for a mid-sized sedan. but its a larger car now. other than that. . . i couldn't think of anything.

1994 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

This was my first and only car that I've owned, and I've already made up my mind: Only Hondas! it's a 94 Accord ex 4 dr automatic Red. I love it. I have had some problems with it but nothing major. the engine is very strong. It won't die. I've tried to blow so many times but i can't. & that's a good thing. The only reason I'm getting rid of it is to get a 5 speed.


Best Features

VTEC! slick sounding engine for a stock automatics shift very nicely. Body design ( put a spoiler on the trunk, and u got a slick lil sports car.)


Worst Features

road noise and a better speaker system and bigger rims (like 17") other than that, nothing

1994 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 1994 Accord EX in April 1997 with around 40K miles. Today it has 264K miles. It has the same engine. I have not spent a lot of money in repairs on my car. Just your usual stuff, brakes, tires, oil changes every 3K-5K miles, one timing belt and pump, speedometer sensor about 2 weeks ago, new radiator. It is a 14 yr old car that has been good to me. I will keep this car as long as it runs. I hate a car payment and I'd rather fix this car than have a ridiculous monthly car payment, higher insurance and property taxes. This is my 2nd Honda Accord and it is the only car I will ever buy for the rest of my life and I will be 49 on July 10.


Best Features

Gas mileage, reliability, transmission, and looks.


Worst Features

Air conditioner has never worked well. Never really gets cold, just cool.

1994 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Only had a few minor repairs as far as the engine is concerned, but nothing major. Almost about to hit 200,000 miles on the odometer, which is equal to about 75,000 miles on most domestic vehicles. This car has proven to better than the 1999 Accord I purchased but ended up selling. It's always great to see another older model Honda on the roads, great advertisement.


Best Features

Gas mileage, comfort, size, fun to drive


Worst Features

Wish the body paint was better, motor problems in the rear windows. Wish Honda would give customers a free complete overhaul on cars ten years or older since we are the ones that are doing the important advertisement for their company.
