1995 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe
OVER 200,000 miles ...this car owes me nothing ... Just add oil/tires/and brakes.....After 150,000 miles i started repairing more than that.. CV- boots, struts, all belts, muffler, radiator, and 2 ball joints. A wonderful car until this year when my mechanic bills started to rise above the actual value of the vehicle. It will still keep kicking for another 100,000 miles guaranteed but i just cannot risk investing more into it as of this point.THIS car has made me feel nothing but good looking in it. Supersporty especially with an open moon roof.As for safety, i feel safer in this vehicle than i do in any SUV or Sedan..the only vehicle i recall feeling this safe in was a ford f250 truck cab with a roll bar
Needs improvement on wheel arms, joints struts and shocks (my only major issues in 200,000 miles)
1995 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan
Purchased this car used to be second car and save on gas from SUV. Third Accord of this style generation. Although this car required more repairs then my others, it's still a great running and looking car. Fuel economy is always very impressive. Great ergonomics, quality craftsmanship and materials, fun 5 speed manual, good handling and ride combo. Super dependable with decent maintenance.
The look of this soon to be 12 year old car. Fuel economy. Relatively easy to maintain. Dependable. Excellent visibility. Good shift quality from the manual tranny. Like how appreciated this model Accord is. People still ask if I'm willing to sell.
All minor: Seat belts slow to retract. Slow power windows. Rear seat space is small, but good if you're not tall or big. Sometimes wish for a little more power. Cost for some maintenance is a little expensive, but a fair trade for the durability, quality, and no payments.

No mechanical problems at all since I purchased the car. Adding a few after market accessories, like new lights and wheels, make it look at home beside some current cars; and a few engine tweaks make it run with them too. When I purchased the car 5 years ago, I compared it to Grand Ams, Civics, Corollas, Sentras, Cavaliers, Sunfires, etc and none of those cars could match the overall package of the Accord. The Accord offered the best combination of practicality (seats 5 passengers comfortably), fuel economy (28mpg), style, and fun-to-drive. Clearly, it's the next best thing to buying a brand new Accord, and a great value for anyone looking to buy a first car.
(1) Even though it's over 10 years old, it still runs better than some brand new cars. (2) There are loads of after market parts available for those who like customizing their cars. (3) Great fuel economy.
Could use a set of cup holders for the rear passengers.
1995 Honda Accord LX 4dr Wagon
Absolutely stellar. I beat up this car, throwing everything I could at it with minimal maintenence and she took it like a champ. Most solid road feel of any car I've ever driven along with an engine that just purrs after every oil change. Enough cargo space to rival most pickups, with 25+ mpg to boot. I could squeeze 30 mpg on long roadtrips. Perfect for a nomadic college kid. The bad: Apparently an 11 year old, beat up, tan station wagon approaching 200k is too tempting of a target for car theives. So goodbye, wagon.
Cargo space, suspension, visibility, and overall tolerance of extreme abuse.
Lacks low end power.
1995 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan
I could not have purchased a better car. This was my first adult car purchase, and I debated buying a more powerful or stylish car, but I couldn't be happier. The 5 speed manual is good for 30-35 mpg highway, and the forgiving gear ratio makes acceleration easy. I have put 40000 miles on it, and needed a new clutch (due to an uphill parallel parking spot), new tires, and that's it. When I have the means to buy a new car, I plan to give this one to a family member, because it seems like a waste to sell it when it will run as long as virtually anything on the road.
Fastastic overall design, still has a solid ride, strong engine, like when I bought it.
The paint flakes easily on the bumpers, street parking in LA exacerbates this.
