Cons

Plastic parts break easily.

It Was Worth It Back Then, But It's Crap Now. — Bought it new... in a champagne color. As you can see, it's silver now. 3-4 crashes and it's still not so bad. We left it a month on vacation in freezing weather and came back, and still started perfectly. Wheels are ugly. Plastic parts break easily (headlights, window motor, fake wood trim).

Great family car that can save you a lot on gas on long trips or just a daily commuter.  Don't forget at a great price!

Not really fast or have alot of power considering it being a 4 cyclinder

Great For Starters, Good Handling, Nice Size, Low Maintenance! — What I like about this car is that anyone can drive it young or old and just a good ole vehicle to drive around town! I don't think I can say anything bad about this vehicle because it's such a popular demand in today's economy!!!

Awesome And Reliable If You Dont Want A Track Ready Car — i love every part of it except how slow it is. brakes tend to roast on spirited drives, handling is good now that i lowered it but it still needs a rear sway bar. never had ANY issues with it besides usual maintenance. i get 30mpg combined

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Reliability, Classic "car" design

The Car To Own — Performance is what you would expect from a 4 cylinder. The quality is excellent per all Hondas. Good gas mileage. Cheap to operate with mileage and low/no maintenance problems. I find it fun to drive since I don't have to worry whether it's going to start.

Fun To Drive, The Exhaust Sounds Mean, And It's Easy On The Wallet. — This car belonged to my bro JP, I cleaned it up, installed a touch screen flip out Monitor, added limo tints, fixed some body damage, replaced the V-Tec Solenoid, changed the throttle, fixed the cold air intake, and prepped for a turbo manifold. the car gets about 30 to the gallon, and can pull about a 10 on the strip. Solid Black, Vallory.

noise on the road

1996 Honda Accord. 123,000 Mi — Accelerates well for a 4 cylinder. Transmission shifts rough like all Hondas.. The drivers window shifts to the side a little going up so the seal on the outside is off. Stereo system is great for a stock system. Gets about 28mpg pretty much no matter how I drive it. Looks good. No rust.

Pros

reliable, large enough to be useful, not bad mileage for a midsize sedan

Cons

mileage not great, not incredibly agile

Great, Reliable First Car — very solid car. gas mileage at 29... I'm sure I can get it to 30 if it's warm out. Comfortable ride, not too much power, but enough.

Wonderful Car! — I've owned this car for about 5 years now. It had over 200,000 miles on it when I bought it. I have had to replace the master cylinder, radiator, and alternator. I love this car! The air conditioner hasn't worked since I bought it but the heater works great..lol. I live in Texas, so air conditioner would be awesome! I usually just refill the freon and it lasts for a while. I'm pretty sure it has a bad hose or something, but I'm not sure. I have driven this car over 200,000 more miles since buying it. It has been to several different states and through rain, snow, sleet, desert, and everything you can think of! I recently blew out the front passenger side tire which ripped out my wiring harness and busted out my blinker. I rigged the headlight to the driver side light and so it works but still haven't been able to replace the harness or get a new blinker. The car still runs and gets me back and forth from taking my kiddo to school everyday. Luckily it's not that far. lol. It has recently developed a harsh idle which goes up and down while in park or neutral. Not really sure what's going on there. But it still works for what I need it for.
