The 1996 Honda Accord V6 is a totally different animal than its 4cyl brothers. The car has about 170hp stock and the CE frame handles like a dream. Admittedly, these are only found in automatic trim...but with the proper tuning and wheel/tire set up...this is a sports sedan.

Power Ranked 1996 Toyota Camry worse.
"V6 is actually the same family as the NSX motor. Revs to 7000+ Still, most models have a four cylinder 2.2l, and one is available with Vtec(intake side only)...when mated to a 5 speed manual, even 145hp feels sufficient for most."
Back Seats Ranked 1996 Toyota Camry worse.
"Honda has sculpted some very beautiful back (bucket) seats...and I think Toyota has accomplished similar interior design. Ultimately, the real deciding factor is just how well the seats have been kept and cared for."
Value Ranked 1996 Toyota Camry worse.
"The car is more than a family grocery getter....it accelerates and handles like a sports car!p Beyond that, the Accord has a vast spectrum of after-market goodies available...it is just a great car to build/tune."
Would Buy Ranked 1996 Toyota Camry worse.
"Both the 1996 Accord and 1996 Camry are practically, A Dime a Dozen, but the Accord can be transformed into a very interesting daily driver, and modifications are vast and relatively cheap...."

Awsome Car Buy Them All — Greatest car ever made for reliablility and entry level tuners. I rebuild mine after I hit a deer and it runs like new, Check your valve clearance every 30,000 mile don't over tighten them and change your oil mine doesn't leak a drop and its got 230,000 rounds on her.

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

Pros: Its a Honda it runs like its new with 230,000 on it, It took a deer collision and still moves like nothing happened(hit at 70mph) this car has not let me down ever.

Cons: Folds like a pop can and no air bags deployed....

Very Well Done With What Is Available, And Keeping Cost Below Value Of Car. — Could have a body kit for it, but never found one I liked that was cost effective. Suspension upgrades would do wonders for this car, but here we go again, cost was a factor. Spending the money on this car and keeping it in ratio to worth of the car was fruitless. If I want a Hot Rod, buy a car designed for, and has the parts available for, would be the answer.... for what I paid for on addons and the price of the car, I did a great job.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good power with a 2.7L V6 that I have added some power addons. Brakes are excellent, with Brembo drilled and slotted extra thick discs. Upgraded calipers and Kevlar pads, steel braided hoses. Handles ok, larger sway bar added, but did not give as much help than I expected.

Cons: Too much body sway for cornering at a fast rate, better than stock, but not up to competition.
Would be nice if there were more available parts for engine upgrades. I have about all can add, and boosted power only about  25%. Fuel mileage is fair.

Wonderful Car! —

I've owned this car for about 5 years now. It had over 200,000 miles on it when I bought it. I have had to replace the master cylinder, radiator, and alternator. I love this car! The air conditioner hasn't worked since I bought it but the heater works great..lol. I live in Texas, so air conditioner would be awesome! I usually just refill the freon and it lasts for a while. I'm pretty sure it has a bad hose or something, but I'm not sure. I have driven this car over 200,000 more miles since buying it. It has been to several different states and through rain, snow, sleet, desert, and everything you can think of! I recently blew out the front passenger side tire which ripped out my wiring harness and busted out my blinker. I rigged the headlight to the driver side light and so it works but still haven't been able to replace the harness or get a new blinker. The car still runs and gets me back and forth from taking my kiddo to school everyday. Luckily it's not that far. lol. It has recently developed a harsh idle which goes up and down while in park or neutral. Not really sure what's going on there. But it still works for what I need it for.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Dependable, reliable, comfy, nice ride

Cons: Hasn't had ac in over 5 years, right now doesn't have a horn or passenger blinker or wiring harness

Great For Starters, Good Handling, Nice Size, Low Maintenance! — What I like about this car is that anyone can drive it young or old and just a good ole vehicle to drive around town! I don't think I can say anything bad about this vehicle because it's such a popular demand in today's economy!!!

Pros: Great family car that can save you a lot on gas on long trips or just a daily commuter.  Don't forget at a great price!

Cons: Not really fast or have alot of power considering it being a 4 cyclinder
