1984 Honda Accord

Although still early in the second generation, the 1984 Honda Accord actually came with quite a few changes.

For those who are more into looks, the '84 Accord now had a new grille, new headlights, and bumpers that looked more like they were part of the car instead of add-on pieces.  

There was also a luxury trim added to the Accord sedan line, and the LX Accord came standard with power doors and windows, a cassette deck with 4 speakers, and air conditioning.  

For those to whom power matters, Honda spruced up the engine in the '84 Accord. It was now a 1.8-liter, bringing the horsepower up to 86. But, because of new emissions rules, the CVCC engine was retired and a catalytic converter became necessary.

As with the other Accords, current owners of the 1984 Accord gush about reliability and fuel efficiency. Complaints, though, now include weak rotors causing shuddering brakes and the tendency to rust all over.
