Pros

It's a Honda.  Fun to drive.  Solid.  Fuel mileage is excellent.

Cons

This one is older, so it has some normal aging problems.

Back To The Honda — Firstly, is the overall concept that it is a Honda. The fuel mileage in a car that is not only fun to drive, but low maintenance and comfortable. If I never sell this, so much the better. For the money: carefree as it gets.

Pros

Good cheap reliable car. Nice acceleration now that I'm starting to really drive it. Seems pretty modern for 1990. Lots of space inside and in trunk.

Cons

Slight rust, growing by the year. One spring broken.

Sleeper. — Not bad on gas, got an average rating at air care test. 2.2L gets the job done. No A/C but thats just the trim I ended up with I guess. But good all round car, drives nice in summer and snow. Got quite the sound system in mine so I am happy with it.

Pros

It should have gotten decent gas mileage, mine wasn't impressive, but i'm sure it did when it was new.

Cons

There are much better $800 rust buckets out there

25

Even If It Had Been New, It Wasn't My Type Of Car — I'm sure this car had its better days, but I never liked it a bit. It was a hand-me- down rust bucket from my brother. It was a brown/tan color, rusted out, and dirty, but it got me to school throughout high school. The engine had a sensor issue where it pulsated at idle, and the brakes never had much pressure, even after bleeding them. I was very happy to get rid of this car.

door latch stuck

It'll Get You There — I put 32k miles on in a year and a half. Only had to replace the muffler, and driver's side door latch seized shut (not an easy fix), on this 20 year old car. Otherwise a reliable car. Much quieter and smoother ride compared to what I am used to, but not as lively and fun either.

Best Car I've Ever Owned. If They Rolled One More Off The Assembly Line, I'd Buy It Over Anything. — This is one of the best car I've ever owned. It has lasted through everything. All I've ever had to replace on it... Tires, brakes, and the radiator. It does great in the snow, and gets great gas mileage. Get this car.

I Love The 1990 Accord — This car is very reliable & can be kept for a long run. Solid body and terrific engine (SM4). The only thing that is a little unsatisfactory is the gear box. You will need to get it fixed or, worst case scenario, change it into a new gear box so that everything the car will run smoothly.

Need A Car? Choice Made. — Performance? None Build Quality? Meh Appearance? No Cost of ownership? got 20 bucks? Fuel Economy? 24 (meh) Fun Factor? Through the roof. Nothing like beating one of these down a crooked road. Overall, this is another prime example of what Honda is missing in their lineup today. Simplicity. There are no fancy bells and whistles. It's a car, that runs, no matter what. The body and frame were known for rusting but its hideous anyway. Better looking than anything Honda makes currently but still hideous. Bottom line? It is a great example of basic transportation.

Lots of mods on the market for this car

Most of them have rust in rear wheel wells

Good Student Car — The 1990-1993 model accords are really fun to drive. There is plenty of mods to do to this car. The standard version of this car is very fun to drive. Its also quite room for a little 4 cylinder car. Take care of the car and do regular maintenance; then this car will last you a very long time.
