If U About Your Bread And Don't Care, Get That! — i bought mine for $500 even. I couldn't believe how much car I got for my money! It's ridiculous! The car runs perfect. All I had to do was put a new muffler in and I'm good. shoot.. There's hardly anything else to add to that.

Cons

It's old and it's gonna take a bit of maintenance over time

It Gets Me From A To B With Good Music And As Many Friends As I Can Fit In The Seats And The Trunk — Hondas last forever. This one has two hundred and thirty thousand miles and its still running. It's green. It gets pretty good gas mileage for a nineteen year old car, 23 mpg to be exact. It's not that fun to drive, i would rather have a BMW M6

1990 Honda Accords — Easy to work on and affordable to drive. Somewhat fast and handles great. Parts are everywhere. I have had it so long that Its familiar to me so I can fix just about anything on it blindfolded.

My Ride:) — It is comfortable and easy to drive. This car went through a lot, and never complained! Very good for a first car or a commuter! Great on long road trips and never a problem with parking cause it is such a reasonable size.

Pros

Surprisingly pokey engine for how it looks.

Reliable.

Safe chassis.

Long distance perfomer - will do 6 litres per 100km on BP Ultimate if it's mainly highway driving.

Cons

Only real problem was the main dual relay - the one that gives power to the car and the fuel pump once you flick the key over, on the second click. The car gave up if you stopped and started more than once in 30 minutes - $100 AUD part and you can do it yourself.

Second gear kicks in a little too hard (auto), easily fixed though.

Turning circle is a little bigger than I thought it would be.

Despises back road / stop start driving - drinks more fuel that it should BUT see pros.

Sleeper - Looks Like An Old Man's Car But Still Beats A "fast And Furious" Lancer — Surprisingly a 100kw car, it beat a suped up late model Mitsubishi Lancer at the lights and down the road. All of the creature comforts come standard - electric windows, mirrors, sunroof, climate control airconditioning, power steering and "sports" gear mode. Only recently car manufacturers have made these items standard in their cars. It was this or a 1990 Audi 80 - costs way too much to get it repaired but the Audi had way better handling. For an everyday car, it's great.

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.

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.

Fun and Reliable

Cons

No reasons that I can think off

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.

Pros

Lots of mods on the market for this car

Cons

Most of them have rust in rear wheel wells

55

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.
