Cheap as dirt, easy to work on, unique car.


Rusts while you look at it, has no performance compared to E30.


Yeah, It's A Beater, But It's The Best One I've Owned. — For reliable, daily transportation, you can't really beat an E21 chassis. The M10 engine is nearly bulletproof, and everything on the car is so simple to repair. I removed the engine and gearbox in about 2.5 hours by myself. It gets better than 25 MPG, an oil change is hardly more than 20 dollars, and the best tires in the world in the stock size are about 55 dollars each. Stock, the car isn't that much of a performer at all, but it's still fun to drive. Uprating the brakes and suspension, fitting a better exhaust and intake would really transform the car. Lowered with some oversized wheels, the E21 can look truly mean. Or, 13 inch steel wheels and an abundance of chrome make a classic statement. Watch out for rust, though.

It's The Honda Accord Of Our Age By Aaron

It's a perfectly reasonable car. Goes fast when you want it too, uses less gas when you want that. Back seat is big enough so the kids don't complain. Just wish it were a bit less bland. I used to... Read More

Not Worth The Money By 1978TA

The fuel economy is not bad for a car with adequate power. It just is not reliable for the money. I expected a lot better reliability but have had it into the dealer more than I would like. So glad I ... Read More
