A Real Classic Car That Is A Joy To Drive — hi i owed a 1979 accord hatchback for about 5 years found it a joy to drive nippy great handling round bends, and ultra reliable,good room with the seats down at the back, probable still my favorite all time car for reliability comfort and handling, even against some german cars i have owed, the ex were more refined for there day with electric roof window and ariel,big chucky chrome buttons, no compromising in build qulity, its a shame about the rust as im sure it would have still be running today, would gladly trade my audi a4 tdi in for another one no computer ecu issues that can be expensive just good straight car that did not show compromise when first, built, a truely great car like no other that i,ve owed in over 20 years driving

We Make It Simple... Is Missed. Nice Car, Good Driving, Nice Sounds, A+ Dash — 1st car in high school, 1990. I had an 86 Escort for 1 month with a manual...then, I received this Honda from my Dad. It was way superior to the 86 Escort. Impressive for a 79. Loved the interior. Fat sporty 4 spoke steering wheel. Nifty storage compartments including a handy coin box. Nice big gauges. Everything was within easy reach. Good space for 4. Purred like a kitten, handled well, nice acceleration (even though it was a Honda-matic). It went through 2 transmissions, 2 master cylinders, over heated twice... 2 rebuilds... and only had like 90k. So I would say there was "bugs" in the early models. Still, the packaging of this time for Honda was perfect. I am not a fan of the weighty overly complicated cars they make now. Give me a nice interior, good quality design, and manual windows.

Would Buy It Again In A Heartbeat! — I absolutely loved my Honda. Gave it away in 1993 and regret it. What a great car! Performance wasn't bad for for an "Economy" car. Seemed to brake and hadnle well. Big hatch door. Loved the interior. Fun to drive.

Sadly Missed By Me For Many Years. The Silver Gem! — Interior was full of little flip lid stash pockets and other little gizmos. My car was silver and had black interior. Cloth and PVC seats that were really comfortable.1600cc engine which was big enough in the early 90's as it was my first car. I would have driven it for more years than 2 if some prat kept his speed down while driving on an iced up lane..Fancy writing off a parked car!! Cheers who ever you are.
