1996 Honda Accord LX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had this car in my family going on 14 years now, bought it brand new in 96. She's going on 300,000KM by this spring, she's seen summers in 99 and the worst of Canadian winters in 01-02. I've done my best to baby her (oil changes every 5000Km, routine maintenance and a few new cheap Honda parts here and there). She's quicker then most cars on the road, drives incredible and cheap on gas. What more can you ask for in a car.


Best Features

Speed, gas mileage, and reliability. Just knowing that in Canada's minus 35 degree snow storms she starts up warms and runs like a champ.


Worst Features

design, interior

1996 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Honda Accord new in March 1996. She has been a great car and currently has 137,600 miles. Besides regular maintenance, I had to change the master cylinder at 115K miles, CV joints/boots at 125K miles, and the distributor at 137K miles. I have had a total of $800 (parts and labor) in repairs. I highly recommend Honda Accords as this is my second Accord. I sold my first Accord with 196K miles (which was still running fine when I sold it).


Best Features

I really (really) like the body style. Gas mileage is good. I average 27 mpg (mixed city/highway).


Worst Features

Road noise is louder than I like, but I have been dealing with it for 13.5 years.

1996 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe


Review

When you get in your car, you should expect it to work. Also, with routine and preventative maintenance, you should expect NOTHING to go wrong with the car. My Honda has been running strong for 3 straight years. I changed out the plugs, hoses, added a new muffler and oxygen sensor and at 174,000 miles it is running perfectly. I will definitely buy another Honda when the time comes, but I plan to run mine into the ground.


Best Features

Moon roof is flawless after 12 years


Worst Features

Make carjackers not want to steal them (only slightly kidding)

This is an economical car! Very reliable. Costs for repairs is expensive; suspension and steering was damaged prior to purchasing, costing over $2,500 in repairs if not more. Over all a wonderful, money saving car.Will never get rid of it. It's my 3rd Honda!


Best Features

Sunroof, cruise control, automatic, wagon!


Worst Features

Cd player, mine always has an error! No matter how many times I took it to the dealership for repairs...
