The "Mayesmobile": A Well-Built Wagon
By Marc Mayes on


1996 Honda Accord EX 4dr Wagon


A silver 1996 Honda Accord wagon has been in our family for so long, it has earned the loving nickname "The Mayesmobile". It has transported us through blizzards and hurricanes reliably and comfortably. For a decade, it has swallowed our hockey gear, musical instruments, friends and animals with ease. After all these years, it is still a peppy* drive, rattle-free over potholes, nimble in the corners and easy to parallel park. As the car has gotten older, we have had a few issues finding parts (struts at 90,000 miles) when we've needed them, but as of yet, no major repairs have been required outside of routine maintenance. It is easily the best car our family has ever owned.

Best Features

VTEC Prelude engine, double-wishbone suspension, roof rack and moonroof.

Worst Features

wish it had a 5spd. besides that, it is perfect.
