HIDs, nice deck, comfortable and V6 power without V6 fuel consumption

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.

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.

1996 Honda Accord. 123,000 Mi — Accelerates well for a 4 cylinder. Transmission shifts rough like all Hondas.. The drivers window shifts to the side a little going up so the seal on the outside is off. Stereo system is great for a stock system. Gets about 28mpg pretty much no matter how I drive it. Looks good. No rust.

It Was Worth It Back Then, But It's Crap Now. — Bought it new... in a champagne color. As you can see, it's silver now. 3-4 crashes and it's still not so bad. We left it a month on vacation in freezing weather and came back, and still started perfectly. Wheels are ugly. Plastic parts break easily (headlights, window motor, fake wood trim).

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.

Great, Reliable First Car — very solid car. gas mileage at 29... I'm sure I can get it to 30 if it's warm out. Comfortable ride, not too much power, but enough.

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.
