1996 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan


My experience with the 1996 Accord
could have been worse. It is quite well-
made; the seats are comfortable; and
the controls are well-placed. Rear
visibility is fairly bad, however, and
exhaust system problems have plagued
the car since my purchase. Acceleration
with the base SOHC engine is acceptable
for normal driving, but highway merges
on short onramps are unpleasant. Again,
though, the car could be much worse.

Best Features

-Excellent build quality -Smooth transmission -Decent-sized trunk

Worst Features

-Lower the tail about 4 inches -Put on some 18-inch rims -Drop in a small turbo to aid acceleration
