A Sweet Little Ride. — Above average sedan that got the job done back in my day. It looked and handled very nice. It was my first love, I mean, Car.

Pros

Everything in this car is great :) I can really recommend this to everyone :)

Cons

I can´t say any bad word of this car. I have 3 kids and 2 great danes and still we fit in :P so I don´t need to change car :)

Great :) — My first OWN car :) First I wanted to buy bigger car, cuz i have kids, but when I drove this couple times I noticed that I don´t wanna sell this beauty :)) It´s soooo easy to handle! And interior is one that I like very much; seats r like satin or silk :) and easy to change pose even when ur driving. In winter this is quickly warm and in summer it´s easy to get cooler inside. I decided to pimp my ride little bit at least in summer, lets wait what she´ll gonna look after that ;)))

Pros

import, great factory parts, durable

Cons

automatic

Confused? — I actually only had the Accord for 2 days... only had 60,000 on it when i bought it. It drove like a dream, nothing appeared wrong.... but somehow... 2 days after i had it.... the tranny dies in the McDonalds drive thru.... my best guess is that the car had been sitting around for so long and needed full service...

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.

Pros

Turning

Cons

Acceleration

35

Great First Car! — Only a 4 cylinder...so acceleration could be better. Braking and handling are amazing though. There are only a couple repairs, nothing huge. Interior could use some work here and there, but exterior is good enough. Gas and maintenance seem fine so far. Overall, i love to drive this beast of a car.

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.

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.
