1997 Honda Accord EX 4dr Wagon


We bought this car used (17K miles) in a
hurry when our disaster of a Taurus
Wagon had a catastrophic engine problem.
Our primary goal was to get a car that
wouldn't require monthly visits to the
mechanic and in this the Accord has been
a rousing success. Other than power
window problems (front windows becoming
progressively slower as time goes on)
the car has performed absolutely
flawlessly. I use it for a long daily
commute (100 miles/day) and it is very
comfortable with decent gas mileage
(23-25 MPG). While not exciting visually
or performance-wise, it has lots of room
and has been a great and extremely
reliable car for our basic
transportation needs.

Best Features

Did I mention the great reliability? Decent mileage for a mid-size vehicle. Mileage and cargo space are both better than your typical SUV. Resale value.

Worst Features

The oft-reported power window problems are obviously an issue. For basic transportation, everything else is just fine.
