1998 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan


I purchased this '98 from my sister this September. I am disappointed with what I thought would be a reliable car. The car vibrates a lot at idle - it almost feels like a massage chair from the Sharper Image. The 'check engine' light never turns off, even though the dealer assured me nothing is wrong. The car is noisy relative to GM cars that I have owned in the past. The rims make contact with curbs before the tires do, and as a result the rims are very scratched. The engine has littel power - sometimes I feel like I could get out and run faster.

Best Features

Fuel mileage is superb.

Worst Features

Other Honda owners said Hondas are reliabe - I think they're giving Honda more credibility than they deserve. They've put their fair share of lemons on the road.
