Pros

Good Handeling, Fuel Efficient, Fun To Drive, Only One of Its Kind back when I owned it.

Cons

Automatic Transmission Died, plus the many other repairs due to the previous owner not taking good care of it

My Honda Accord Lx 2 Door — First Car. Good Quality except for a few problems. For a car from 1996 and the mileage no major surprises. For 140,000+ miles it ran strong. Gets up and goes. Very fuel efficient. High 20s low 30s mpg. Cost of ownership wasn't too bad. I loved the car and it was a lot of fun to drive. Drove it many miles and had many great memories with it. I would recommend a 1996 Honda Accord to anyone if you buy a good quality one. Great 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.

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.

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.

Great handling and ride.

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.

Engine, equipment, build quality, ride

Cons

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

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

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.
