Good For The Money — Gets great gas mileage, does not brake down ever, have 225,000 miles and still not much for issues, be careful in winter it like to slide around like crazy. Acceleration was okay, I cant speak for the auto version but the manual tranny was a breeze and very forgiving. overall its a good car for getting around, you wont win any races with it or make any heads turn, but for a cheap car you cant get something much more dependable and cheap to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Does not break down + cheap to fix if it does

Cons: Terrible on icy roads

Awesome And Reliable If You Dont Want A Track Ready Car — i love every part of it except how slow it is. brakes tend to roast on spirited drives, handling is good now that i lowered it but it still needs a rear sway bar. never had ANY issues with it besides usual maintenance. i get 30mpg combined

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

Pros: almost everything

Cons: sloooooowwwwwwwwwwww

Exceptional — The 1996 Honda Accord is an exceptionally reliable vehicle with a very low cost of ownership. With currently over 170,000 miles, it runs beautifully. However, without the VTEC engine, this car does not pick up as quick as responsively as many drivers may want. The styling is wonderful with a design that does not look outdated at all despite it being a 14 year old vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability

Cons: Slightly underpowered without VTEC

It's Reliable And Was A Good Price. Lasts Forever. — good reliable Honda. It's not fast, but it's fast enough. The seats are comfortable and there are good features for a car that is almost 14 years old. big trunk, seats fold down. Easy to install upgrades. Good price too.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's reliable.

Cons: it doesn't look special.
