1997 Honda Accord Special Edition 4dr Sedan


This Accord was my very first car and
is an excellent first car for any high
schooler. It's cute and sporty while
still being practical and functional,
especially on the gas mileage. I
bought it at 29,000 and the only
problems have been mostly small ones--
the power windows are sometimes slow,
the A/C and defogging are sometimes
flaky and I also have "phantom locks"--
whenever I lock my car, manually or by
remote, the locks continue to make a
sound as though they are locking. But I
have never had a major problem with my
Accord and I always feel safe in it.

Best Features

I love the overall look of the Accord from the year '97, more so than the '98- '02 models. Great cargo space for a college student like me. Great gas mileage on the highway. Comfy seats, and just a good solid-handling ride. The gas and brakes respond well.

Worst Features

Definitely the A/C, defogger, power windows and power locks need to be addressed. I'm guessing they have been improved in recent years.
