    All In One Accord — The car came with plenty of electronics that were easy to use and never broke. The car had stunning lines and very comfortable interior. It wasn't the best MPG car i ever had, but it was ok for the category...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: looks, comfort

    Cons: somewhat pricey to maintain in Peru, MPG wasn't great...

    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

    The K-17 — I love everything about this car. It has power everything. The performance of the car is ok for the typical sedan. The exhaust has seen better days so thats the first performance mod Im doing. The only thing that I had to fix was the fuel pump.(Thats right I fix my own cars). The appearance is very good for a 89. The main thing is the faded out trim that Im painting gloss black.

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

    Pros: The JDM style

    Cons: Height needs to be lowered and swayed

    Reliable Solid Performance And Classic Lines. Stilling Driving After 20 Years. — I have had the 89 LX for 20 years and I still enjoy driving it. Reliable solid performance and classic lines. Never thought I would end up driving it for 20 years, but it is still fun to drive so why make a payment?

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Solid consistent performance

    Cons: Air conditioner issues

    Great Memories — It was a good car, quality built, good acceleration, good performance for the year of the car, cheap to run and maintain, lots of parts in the junk yard and it was a blast to drive. Didn't need any repairs.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Cheap and reliable

    Cons: It'ss getting older now, you probably won't find one in good shape like mine unless you are willing to do work.

    1989 Honda A Great Car For The Last 20 Years (and Still Drives Like It Did When New!) — my son's first car out of college. when he moved to japan I bought it for my daughter to drive in high school and college. In 1998 I swapped my 1996 honda for the 89 cause I thought it would be more reliable for her in Atlanta. Eleven years later I am still driving the 89 accord. Except for a few things that have failed like ac, cruise it still runs great, has no rattles or squeeks, and the steering is better than any car I have ever driven. You just point the car where you want it to go and it doesnt wander at all. Amazing for a 20 year old car!! I like this car so much I am even considering a quality paint job with original paint (black with a gold fleck) I know, I know it will cost more than the car is worth in the market but I would completely restore this car (if I had the money)so a good paint job might not bust the budget.

    Pros: 5 speed is peppy!  way more pep than  96 model with automatic I owned

    Cons: black paint started failing at about the 10 year mark and is really bad on hood, roof & trunk

    Pros: Its a Honda

    Cons: surface rust in edge of the rear 1/4 panels

    Honda Accord Dx 2.0 2bbl — With a 2.0 Single overhead cam engine sporting a 2 barrel carb. Manual transmission, 2 stage NOS, light weight, 17 inch Rims and Low profile tires. 35 miles to the gallon makes it affordable, and the engine can take some serious punishment. Only problem with her is she is sedan instead of a coupe.

    Pros: New engine (50,000 miles) and new tranny (10,000 miles) for a car with 200,000 registered miles

    Cons: 4 door sedan instead of 2 door coupe
