Overall:

Tight Engineering, Great Shifter. Big Gas Milage — One of my favorite Hondas. Innovative & revolutionary at the time. Raised the bar for US auto maker build quality that the US are just now jumping over.

Pros: It's all good

Cons: Hatchback had no way to hide cargo.

1978 Honda Accord LX Hatchback Review
Snodog says:
Bought this car cheaply with 99k miles. Very refined powertrain, comfort, and civility. Rust was the enemy - both rear struts shot the spring perches down the tubes within a month, and some frame rust at back subframe mounting area. But ran like a sewing machine. Not as efficient with gas not space as my Ford Fiestas

Handling Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback better.

"More refined. Bits stayed attached much longer."
Front Seats Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback worse.
"They had padding that didnt degrade as quickly"
Back Seats Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback better.
"More legroom"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback better.
"Hatch went to the load-floor, allowing for some insanely large items to be hauled - full-size refrigerator!"
Family Car Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback worse.
"It was reliable, acceptable, and refined enough for a spouse to accompany."
Value Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback worse.
"It lasted longer."
Would Buy Ranked 1978 Ford Fiesta Hatchback worse.
"Accord was a real car, with a complex refined engine. Whereas the Fiesta was cheap, simple, and fun."
