Cons

Awesome But Not Family Friendly — I've owned this car for several years and it has only needed routine maintenance. It has 240k miles and the biggest thing I have done is a clutch, computer, and battery replacement. It still gets 30 miles to gallon and saves me money every month by not making payments or higher insurance premiums that come with not owning your car or a car with a higher value that will go down over time.

Slightly underpowered without VTEC

Exceptional — The 1996 Honda Accord is an exceptionally reliable vehicle with a very low cost of ownership. With currently over 170,000 miles, it runs beautifully. However, without the VTEC engine, this car does not pick up as quick as responsively as many drivers may want. The styling is wonderful with a design that does not look outdated at all despite it being a 14 year old vehicle.

The Best Generation Of The Accord, I Think. — Overall it's a great car I love it! Honda is a great make and this generation of the Accord is my favorite!! :) Performance is awesome has the wonderful v-tech motor!:) kicks you back a little for just a 4-banger! lol theres small squeaks within the suspension but that going through tough gravel roads at 45mph. nice and smooth though! gas mileage is awesome over 420 miles per tank! i love it it's very fun to drive! wish it was stick but everything else makes up for the loss there.

96' Honda Accord — An accord is a great vehicle, its safe and has very responsive handling. I love having a five speed again. The car has average power but is still quick enough to get through traffic. It has no problem cornering or hugging the road. I also love the interior styling and design.

Great Commuter Car — If you just need a somewhat reliable, very inexpensive to own and even less expensive to operate car to commute, then this is your ride. The 2.2L VTEC engine makes great power, and the car is light enough to feel quick. Handling is better than average and the seats are very comfy. Even with 220K miles on the odometer mine was still spunky, felt tight and the interior was in decent shape.

Excellent Car !! — what a great car , the only thing i can fault it on is the windows , exactly the same problem as the rover 600 , performance is tuned for cruising on motorways but if you want to burn a boy racer off at the lights , you shouldnt have any problem . Very reliable , luxurious roomy interior and lots of toys , comfortable ride and good looks with a bit of performance thrown in , great for carting your kids around at high speed .

Awsome Car Buy Them All — Greatest car ever made for reliablility and entry level tuners. I rebuild mine after I hit a deer and it runs like new, Check your valve clearance every 30,000 mile don't over tighten them and change your oil mine doesn't leak a drop and its got 230,000 rounds on her.

Pros

Good power with a 2.7L V6 that I have added some power addons. Brakes are excellent, with Brembo drilled and slotted extra thick discs. Upgraded calipers and Kevlar pads, steel braided hoses. Handles ok, larger sway bar added, but did not give as much help than I expected.

Cons

Too much body sway for cornering at a fast rate, better than stock, but not up to competition.
Would be nice if there were more available parts for engine upgrades. I have about all can add, and boosted power only about  25%. Fuel mileage is fair.

Very Well Done With What Is Available, And Keeping Cost Below Value Of Car. — Could have a body kit for it, but never found one I liked that was cost effective. Suspension upgrades would do wonders for this car, but here we go again, cost was a factor. Spending the money on this car and keeping it in ratio to worth of the car was fruitless. If I want a Hot Rod, buy a car designed for, and has the parts available for, would be the answer.... for what I paid for on addons and the price of the car, I did a great job.
