Mine — It's great on gas and fun to drive around the curves back home. the engine is getting pretty old but plan to put some work into it and make it run better and keep it running until i get another honda.

1996 was a few years ago...

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.

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.
