Great car, except gas mileage
By Snowman2109 on


1996 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


I bought this car when it had 132500.
Overall, its a pretty nice car, never
failed me in times. Can be expensive
to fix but if you have the right
connections, you can get it fixed for
the right price. In the year i owned
it, i replaced the cv boot-90 for
parts and 90 for work, timing belt
changed for the first time changed at
135000 and didnt even snap,
impressive. Window just driver side
motor just broke, 110 with part. Gas
mileage is my
biggest concern. During the winter i
got 16mpg, and summer i got 20,
might not be so bad for a normal car
but pretty bad for a 130hp 4 banger.
Also winter driving was horrible with
no traction

Best Features

Handling is unbelievable, just like a sports car, a 5 year old could drive it with a pinky, very nice steering. Very smooth suspension and nice ride.

Worst Features

FUEL ECONOMY!!!! Better window design, slow motion. Very weak engine. Transmition gets very jumpy at higher mileage. Better radio and speakers.
