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.

Reliable, stylish.

Cons

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.

Pros

GREAT gas mileage. Runs on regular.

Cons

Plastic parts break easily.

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).
