Vehicle1997 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan
ReviewThe accord is overall a decent car, but I think there are better choices for the money. Yes, it's a Honda. The engine will run for 250k miles. But that's only if you maintain it properly (not everyone does) and maintaining a Honda is rather expensive. If you buy a Honda with 100k miles on it, be prepared to spend another $1-2k on it right away to keep it going. It will need timing belt, water pump, and suspension replacements. I think people have misconceptions about what Hondas are. They're not above normal wear and tear. Beyond this, any Honda built before 1998 has terrible structural rigidity so expect a lot of flex and rattling. Interior doesn't hold up all that well either.
Best FeaturesRefined 4 cyl, smooth ride, classic look, resale value, safety, parts availability.
Worst FeaturesMore durable and higher quality interior, cheaper dealer service, less hype. Tighter chassis structure.
