Pros

Does not break down + cheap to fix if it does

Cons

Terrible on icy roads

25

Good For The Money — Gets great gas mileage, does not brake down ever, have 225,000 miles and still not much for issues, be careful in winter it like to slide around like crazy. Acceleration was okay, I cant speak for the auto version but the manual tranny was a breeze and very forgiving. overall its a good car for getting around, you wont win any races with it or make any heads turn, but for a cheap car you cant get something much more dependable and cheap to drive.

White Beauty — Just like the car. A car is just what I need on those rainy days. Just need to get all the maintenance up to date and drive it whenever needed. Hoping to have the car for a while. Enjoy the drive!

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.

Gas and Durability

Cons

Brakes and Air Bags

Accord — A nice little 4-cylinder. It was my mother's. She drove it to work and back on a pretty far commute and it lasted a while. It was in an unfortunate accident, and kept my mother fairly safe only resulting in two fractured bones. The Airbags and brakes are the only downfalls to this purchase.
