1997 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


Have a 97 accord 4-dr EX w/ 184K miles now. Very reliable. Has lost a little juice and feels underpowered now compared to newer cars, but otherwise runs great. Only problems/complaints: (1) Warped rotors (replaced once, new set warped again), (2) paint is faded and splotchy now, (3) driver's side window slow to slide back up, esp on cold days, (4) A/C is not very strong, (5) mileage is so-so (about 24 mpg in mostly fwy driving, but I don't exactly obey the speed limit either). Not most exciting handling, but more responsive than Camry or some American cars I've driven. Never get tired of my car. Would definitely buy another or recommend to someone.

Best Features

Great reliability. Relatively fun to drive. Visibility out is good (compared to newer cars).

Worst Features

Need stronger AC, better power windows, better paint job. Front rotors shouldn't warp so easily. Should've gotten the V6 or waited another month for 98 Accord. Decent handling, could be better. Could be quieter.
