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.

Liked My Ex-r More. — My wife bought this car before we met. I had a 94 Accord EX-R which ran better and was quicker.

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.

Pros

Acceleration, Front Interior Space, Braking

Cons

Handling, Radio Controls

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.

Pros

Reliable, stylish.

Cons

AC problem towards the end.

35

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.
