Cons

Bland like tomato soup

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

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.

Engine, equipment, build quality, ride

Cons

Thirsty, expensive spare parts

Honda Accord Aerodeck - Rock Solid Cruiser — I needed a cheap wagon and this is one of the most stylish in the lot. Engine is quite torquey, and it has loads of equipment. It feels rock solid on the tarmac, and build quality is excellent. The suspension is advanced, and gives a perfect touch, but spare parts are rather expensive. Very recommended

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.

It's A Good Work Car..... — Cost of ownership- gas mileage is great and oil change like 1 every 3 months for 20 bucks- heck yeha! I have been in a couple accidents with it and am looking for parts for the front. I love driving this car... It's my first car and I still have it...

Pros

HIDs, nice deck, comfortable and V6 power without V6 fuel consumption

Cons

Small dents, high mileage, minor problem with power locks

My 96 Honda Accord Ex-l V6 — Got the car this year in Feburary. I just needed a car to driving to classes and hospitals for the next 3 years. Car's performance is very good, it's the highest trim level and it came with a $700 deck and HID lights so i can't complain. It's got minor problems but for a 12 year old car it is definitely holding up well. If i had the money i would get the 2008 Accord coupe V6 because of this car.

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.

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.

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.
