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 The styling is wonderful with a design that does not look outdated at all despite it being a 14 year old vehicle.

It's Reliable And Was A Good Price. Lasts Forever. — good reliable Honda. It's not fast, but it's fast enough. The seats are comfortable and there are good features for a car that is almost 14 years old. big trunk, seats fold down. Easy to install upgrades. Good price too.

Gets Me From Point A To B — I like the spacious interior, its not major but good enough for me. Performance is relatively good, Gas mileage is OK. Appearance, well with some tints, it looks good. Cost of ownership is good, and it IS fun to drive.

At 13, This Car Still Gets 31 Mpg - It Just Keeps Going... — Excellent reliability, great gas mileage, and few repairs. Honda continues to provide excellent vehicles at excellent prices that have durability that far exceeds its American competitors. Couple this with excellent fuel standards and sleek designs and you can understand why Honda has one of the highest rates of non-employee repeat business.

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.
