Very overrated
By Colin Higgins on


1998 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan


The car is difficult for me to get into
because I am tall. The suspension is
lousy, and it is very underpowered.
Repairs include
1. 4 brake jobs (and I don't ride the
breaks), including rotor replacement
and drum replacement. The breaks are
still lousy and the car shudders when
2. Doors out of alignment, causing
alarm to go off and window to stick -
even though the car has never been in
an accident.
3. Car hesitates when changing gears,
indicating a transmission problem. Car
has 83k miles on it, but the whole
reason for purchasing a Japanese car is
to get better engine reliability -this
is no better than a Ford Escort.

Best Features

Nice dashboard and intuitive controls
