Used For Driver's Ed — I used this car for driver's ed, so my use was very limited. I didn't take the car above 50, 55, however, the acceleration was for the most part good (5 people in the car), braking was good, handling was very sluggish, perhaps because of the 5 people in the car, but even on the road test it felt that way. The car had around 130,000 miles so even though it was only a '96 it was built well. I cannot comment on maintence or any other problems etc.

AC problem towards the end.

Very Reliable. — I didn't have any problems with my Accord, until the AC quit working 8 years after I bought it. I'd say that's a pretty good track record.

bought one because:

My wife had the 97 chevy and my car out live 2 of them chevy and is still running to this day

bought one because:

Looks good - runs good- holds up over time. I have a 1996 accord ex with most of the components O.E. This vehicle has been maintained strictly by the book, no more - no less. It has a quarter of a million miles on it and is almost 20 years old. No rust - no rattles and it handles very well. Engine and transmission perform as if they could go on forever. I do not intend to drive it into the ground so I will repair and replace what needs to be repaired and replaced along with the usual routine maintenance and bank on it getting around for many more years to come.

bought one because:

Better than the Volvo, which I also owned. Both are suburbans (station wagons, or estate cars).
