Immaculate! — A 1986 Accord Aerodeck LX (euro) 2,0i 4cyl 120hk. Bought this car 3 years ago, 2011 marks this cars 25th year of service! Around 240,000km on the clock, the car has been really well cared for, immaculate paint, no rust!

They Don't Make 'em Like This Any More! — I have carried canoes on it. Only selling because we need something that can carry a pedal harp. Built in Marysville, OH. Rebuilt 2 more times by Americans. Years of reliability and fun to drive. Someone needs to adopt it.

Inexpensive Transportation, Character After All These Years, Yup Its Still Rolling, Look At It — Great car, superior Japanese reliabilty, awesome hatchback, fun to drive, zippy engine, and good gas mileage. Rolling on 13" wheels and there's a lot of rust due to northeast weather. Many of my parts will be purchased at a local salvage yard. It's old and what more can you ask from it. The car does not ask anything from me. It just goes where I want it to go. Thank you Honda

I Absolutely Love This Car. I'd Rather Drive My '86 Honda Than My Girlfriends '03 Jeep! — My 86' Accord has a touch over 70k miles and I couldnt ask for a better car. It may not be a BMW but I'll put money on it that it'll last longer! Need I mention that I can still pull 125+ MPH in a stock '86 Accord...

Cons

Its My First Car... What Else Do You Expect? — Its a rust bucket... Rear hatch was replaced by junkyard one, interior is frayed and cracked. It has no balls, whatsoever. It was only $700 bucks and it kinda shows it. The car is a trip to drive, but compared to other cars, it has no go.

What Can I Say? — I have a 1986 accord hatchback. bought it for $924.00 Can on a car lot taxes and all. It needs a muffler. I drive a car with 350,000km on it and it burns no oil. goes like a bat out of hell and sounds great doing it. I would buy another if I could find one but they are very rare here. It's built like a tank and has handling that makes many newer cars look like a joke. it's stock. I won my last three races based on the little bit of power and the insane handling. passengers rave about how ere it corners even on ice and how easy I can throw it around. I can't say enough about it. the only stock car I ever liked better for handling is my Rx7, but the savings in gas with my accord s make it the better car hands down.
