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

Very Relaible Car Even After 13 Years — I drive it with a lpg tank and the cars has driven 345,000 kilometers on LPG fuel. cheap, clean burning and the oil doesn't need change for over 100,000 KM! I can choose gasoline or lpg with a push of a button.

Good Ride With Great Mpg Possibilities. — The only thing I don't like about this car is that there are no power windows, mirrors, or door locks. The handling and ride are great. It would get decent mileage for a typical driver with an EPA combined rating of 20/24/28. Currently I am getting about 40 MPG with skill alone.

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.

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.

Lil Honda — wont die no matter how hard you beat it as long as you take care of basic maintence. Could use more power but it is only 2.2 4 cylinder not every expensive to maintain good gas milage Can be fun in the winter time or if you drive crazy. Good care if you need a get around town and long trips very reliable. Not a stunning car but it aint ugly either

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 .
