Pros

Great gas mileage, great handling, sturdy exterior, comfortable interior, low cost of ownership (if well taken care of), very easy to repair

Cons

The body is quick to rust, the car might not have enough power for some people, some parts may be expensive (because it is an older car)

A Dependable Little Car And A Rare Find — I bought the car almost exactly a year ago (Aug. 2007) with 143k miles, since then I have put about 6k miles on it. I was skeptical at first because of its age, but It has been an incredible car. The previous owner had taken excellent care of the car and the body was in near-perfect shape. The body had a few rust spots around the wheel wells and in unnoticeable places under the body. The interior was excellent, except for a torn driver's seat. The dashboard had no discoloration, the seats are incredibly clean. The interior was roomy, even filled with a maximum of four passengers, the car still felt very roomy. I suppose things could get uncomfortable with very tall people, however. The car had mediocre power, suitable enough for town and city driving, the car gets terrible gas mileage on highways and interstates (due to a 3-speed automatic, the car is geared very low). However, you can run the engine faster because it is a 4-cylinder and it is designed to be able to run faster without the engine getting too warm. The steering is excellent as well in the car, but I had to replace the rack in pinion six months ago, due to the mechanism leaking. The handling is still incredible. I have had no electrical problems with the car, and everything in the car works (even the clock in the dash). I had to replace the alternator belt because it was frayed, but I expect other minor problems with belt in hoses that are still the original from the car. The car is very easy to work on. Overall, the car is fun to drive and very solid. Honda lives up to its reputation for dependable automobiles.

My Third, Fourth And Fifth Cars — I had three Honda Accords.  The first two were on their last legs I picked up as beaters to get me to school.  The last one was in good shape and I had it a few years.  Very nice cars for their day.  Fun to drive, great fuel economy, very comfortable ride and very reliable.  Even the Junkers I had ran forever they just rusted to death.
