1997 Honda Accord Special Edition 4dr Sedan


My sister had leased this car for 3 yrs and I snatched it up the day she went SUV. 135K miles on it now w/numerous 2K mile road trips under her belt. You can not destroy this car! I drive on possibly the worst tires in a winter snow zone without chains or studs and as long as the front bumper isn't pushing snow, I get wherever I need to go. My fuel mileage has drops to about 20-21 MPG with the winter ethanol mix we're forced to use, but she runs like a champ! Great car!

Best Features

Love the leg room up front. Never ridden in the back but doesn't look comfy with the Driver's seat all the way back like I have it. Lab loves to ride shotgun and her throne requires an annual steam cleaning. Moon roof is essential.

Worst Features

Center console does not support male's weight on right arm pushing himself back into cruising posture - elbow has shattered the top plastic of the console lid. Paint chips terribly on front. Hate where the trunk/fuel releases are. That's where my left foot rides dammit. S/be in jockey box.
