Pros

Maneuverable, automatic was great for bay area traffic,  and mileage.

Cons

Key would get stuck in ignition, car would take longer than usual to shift into reverse, and driver window would get stuck.  All expected on an older car.

Practical — Handled well for the year. Got pretty good gas mileage (between 24-27 mpg usually). Car did show it's wear and tear, but it was a commuter car.

Long Lasting Tank — Was in the family for about 16 years, brand new when bought for my mother. It was an EX-R trimline which is not shown on this program. Top of the line except no spoiler (ugly anyways) and no cd player. It drove fantastic untill its final days where it broke down litterally on a lift the brake lines were shot as well at the springs, shocks, and gas line had a leak. Also transmision was on its last legs. Also body after 16 montreal winters rusted quite a bit. However someone took posession of the car fixed it and last it is on the road.

Solid Car With Little Repair — Drives forever. Only problem has been in that when it gets hot, really hot, outside, sometimes has trouble starting. It always starts.

Great, Reliable Car — I got this car a couple weeks after the Corolla died; I was in a desperate need of a vehicle that was roomy enough to hold a bunch of newspapers I deliver, yet had good fuel economy (so trucks, vans, and SUVs were out of the question), this one was the only one in my budget available on Craigslist, at the time. The car was in a fair to poor condition and being sold for more than its worth, but I didn't want to offer something too low to the point that the owner would refuse to sell the car to me, so I offered $100 more than its worth, but the owner asked for another $100 and the price was settled for $200 less than the original asking price. The car had several minor to moderate problems that I've managed to fix over the year, but the rest is a bit too complicated for me to fix myself, since I'm not much of an mechanic. I really have to give it to this car for the fact it hasn't ever broken down on the side of the road, other than a couple times I had to change a flat tire, ever since buying the car. Unlike the Corolla, I sort of like how the Accord looks, which is, in some way, sort of sporty for a family car; I suppose it's because the body is low, wide, and relatively flat. Despite the fact that the car is getting pretty close in reaching 250,000 miles as of November 19, 2014, I'm pretty sure it will last another 50,000-100,000 miles, but I'll probably get rid of it, for a better car, before it reaches 300,000 miles.

Pros

It's built complex, yer simple.

Cons

Interier noise, tires etc. big factor. But it happens in many front wheel drives.

Reliable, And Well Thought Of. — For a straight 4 cylinder engine, with 2.2 liters, it's gives a reasonable amount of power. But still, made on fuel economy, unlike some newer models with a V6 3.0 Liter engine! So yeah, the tyranny also comes with a sport, and what I believe is a 4, or 5 speed, which is now failing on me, and jumping, with more than 300,000 Km which I'll soon replace, along with many other things, but you could see it's a long lasting car, that's easy to fall in love with!
