205000 and still strong
By CEB on
Vehicle1995 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought it new and at 205000m is still
strong. Never broken down. Original
clutch. No rust although a NE car. Gets
over 32mpg now and revs smoothly and
powerfully to the redline to which I
frequently take it. Absolutely no
rattles -actually am amazed,
especially as I installed stiffer
shocks and springs F&R swaybars
(absolutely essential for decent
handling), done the basic engine mods
and drive this thing fairly hard. Brake
work is expensive though with the
pressed on rotors. If I knew it was
going to last this long I would have
bought the EX for more power, discs all
round with ABS, sunroof, and power
locks. It would have been well worth
the extra money.
Best FeaturesSmooth engine. Build quality matching luxury vehicles. Solid feel. Reliability. Handling since I made the aformentioned improvements, without which it is too soft and does not do the car or Honda's image any good. Well spent $14000.
Worst FeaturesNo pressed on brakes. Stiffer stock suspension.
