1996 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe


Bought the car with 28K miles in 2000 and still drive this car daily with now 228K!!
In fact, the car went the past two years without anything but oil changes until it was time to replace the timing belt again.
It is amazing the clutch hasn't needed replaced, nor has any other major item engine wise other than a starter over the years.
CV joints went out at 180K, and the wheel bearings are getting close now.
My wife drives and 07 sedan and my stock radio is a nicer system.
I think the brakes on this car are better than the 07!
And it survived a collision with a 6-point buck this year and all I needed was a headlight and a hood!

Best Features

Reliability Great Ride

Worst Features

Exhausts - Never seem to last more than 3-4 years! Unequal corrosion. Why the passenger side shows signs of rust and not the drivers side is a mystery. The back quarter panels will rust before this car will ever stop running. Otherwise, if you're looking for a car to trick out or save money for reliable transportation, this model Accord is for you!
