Economical And Hassle-free Shuttle Box With Style — This car has really been good to me while I have driven it, and I love the fact that it has cloth seats! All the other Hondas had either leather or vinyl and these cloth seats were great through the winter. They match really well with the two-tone upholstery of the interior!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Maintenance, while sparse, is still cheap when it happens.  These cars seem to run forever with no hassles.  I get decent fuel mileage and plenty of room inside to carry around all my stuff and a few passengers, too.  I have owned a 1995 Accord, 1995 Prelude, 1991 Civic hatchback and now this 1989 Accord and have to say that they are all great, but the older Accord (...call me old school) has my favorite styling of all.

Cons: The car could use some more power and it doesnt have the best sound proofing either, but this is to be expected of an older economy car.

Great Car For Its Age — I bought this car over 3 years ago for $1500.00. Mine was the 4-door manual transmission version. I was expecting better gas mileage from it but I wasn't unhappy with the 30mpg I was getting. It was very fun to drive and handled well. For a 20-year-old car, I was impressed that it didn't have any squeaks or rattles and the A/C was still very cold. The sunroof and power windows all still worked perfectly as well. I sold this car to my mom about two years ago and it's still going strong with 225k miles on it. Haven't had a lick of trouble from the engine, transmission, or clutch. The driver's side door handle (inside) is broken and she hasn't been able to find a replacement yet, but she says it's not that big of a deal to her. I would buy another one in a heartbeat if I could find one for the same deal. That exact same car is now selling for over $3k in my area (even with similar mileage.)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great little car

Cons: Can't think of any

Fun Relaible And Spacious Car — I bought this car on craigslist for $650- it runs great no problems so far. What I really love about this car besides its cool headlights is how spacious it is inside, trunk wise and how wide all the windows are.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Spacious

Cons: Old

My 1st Car — I loved the fact that it was as old as it was and was still able to start up on the coldest days when some other cars wouldn't! The sad thing was I had to let it go because the transmission had started to go on me and it wasn't worth spending a few grand for a car that wasn't worth that much.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It Ran Smooth and had power windows

Cons: Nothing that I could think of

An Ok Car! — I absolutely LOVED this car. Wish I hadn't sold it. The mileage was great, the acceleration was terrific. The only problem that it really ever had, and my mechanic couldn't figure out, was that it had an oil leak somewhere and he could never find out where. I'd have to add at least 2-3 quarts every couple of days.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: speed, acceleration, gas mileage

Cons: gas leak that was never found

Take Care Of It And It Will Take Care Of You! — This was my baby. I loved this car. It was in all around good car. The only little problem with mine was it had a pretty bad oil leak. No one could tell me where it was coming from and it kept ruining my altenators. I replaced the altenator like 3 times. Everyone kept telling me I needed to get rid of it that it was no good. If I had known I was gonna go through what I went through money wise since my honda I would still have my car! Best car you could ever own! It handled great, had great speed, the interior was emaculate as well as the outside, gas mileage was about 23 - 25 miles to the gallon. Was really fun and exciting to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome Car

Cons: None really
