    If Not For High Reliability, I Couldn't Say A Lot Good About It. — The best things were high reliability, outward visibility, simple, intuitive controls inside. I hope to never have another car with such lousy winter traction nor hit every bump in the road so noticeably. It was a 2 door with hidden headlights and a sexy look that stands the test of time even now.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Extremely reliable for over 200,ooo miles, trustworthy.  Simple controls, great visibility.  Seats comfortable to ride in, but not the sporty ride quality.    

    Cons: Worse winter traction I've ever seen, you sneezed, it was stuck.  It even in summer danced around on cruise control on fresh pea rock on blacktop, it could've spun out of control.  I didn't like the harsh, sporty ride and thump thump over every bump.  Not brutal, but punishing, tiring.

    2.0 88 Accord Lxi Hatch 5 Speed. — 88 accord lxi hatch. 2.0 single cam 12 valve. acceleration is alot better than most might beleive and goes hand in hand with the cars top speed of 130-140mph.not bad for an 88 accord. the car is relatively light at 2450lb. (only 600lb. heavier than the mazda miata). due to this fact the car handles and respondes only slightly under the miata`s standards. with aftermarket upgrades the car has true potential in the tuner scene.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: extremely fun to drive 5 speed with killer burnouts.

    Cons: body damage. dents, scratches and rust.

    : ) — Performance - poor acceleration, good displacement, nices braking, excelent handling. Build Quality - needs repairs Appearience - nice interior, damaged exterior but still nice Cost of Ownership - low gas mileage, hi-cost parts Fun factor - very fun to drive it, i love my Honda.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Is a Honda

    Cons: The price to repair it

    Terrible — Anemic four cylinder with an automatic transmission meant this thing was looking for the right gear on almost every drive - especially if hills were involved. Despite it's sporty appearance this car was absolutely no fun to drive - at all. It was unreliable and tended to leak copious amounts of oil onto my driveway. Not particularly comfortable either, with seats like rocks and a smallish trunk. This was our first experience with a Honda product and, unfortunately, not our last.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: economy

    Cons: everything else

    Ugly As Sin, But Got The Job Done — I picked this up after I totaled my Achieva. It was rusted out beyond belief and had no balls, but I'm not going to argue with high 30's to the gallon with my aggressive driving style. Ended up trading it off when I started having issues I didn't want to fix.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Economy, roomy, fairly dependable

    Cons: No performance at all

    1988 Honda Accord Sedan Lxi — One of the few sedans that ever had pop-up headlights. The double wishbone suspension made this a great handling car, and the Honda 4cyl. engine got better than average performance and gas milage. Very reliable, with excellent fit and finish.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, great handling, and fun to drive.

    Cons: Not a performance sedan.

    Bought On Ebay.com For $380 In N.c. — My Hondaro'sa might be twenty one years, but boy is she running like a champ? She ain't ecomomocal not even close compared to the Insight first generation, but still delivers some 35 MPG's on the highway. Last round trip to Pananama city and back on one tank shell premium. Is this sweet or what? Oh, yes i forgot to mention, it has nice flipping eyes, Vera cute...

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: ICE- Internal Cumbastion Engine runs forever and ever till more ever.

    Cons: No exhaust it's kinda loud "when I sleep" just kidding

    Family Car — the car was a great transportation tool for a small family. it had quality in its materials and was loaded with most of the creature comforts which are optional on today's cars. had decent drivability and was more than sufficient for the weekend getaways

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: the digital speedometer

    Cons: the access to rear seats
