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.

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.

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

Pros

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.

Pros

Gas mileage, big trunk for all my sports equipment, and a back seat.

Cons

It blends in with the crowd.

Gets Great Gas Mileage — Started driving it when I realized that I was spending over $500 a month on gas. Now I spend about half that. Its not a car that turns heads, but its a car that gets me to work, school, the bar and back without any problems.

Internal Lasts Forever (can't Say The Same About The Looks) — I love the car. It is one of the best 4 Cylinder cars I have driven or ridden in. Handles great and has good acceleration. Great gas mileage compared to cars and trucks today.
