    Lil Honda — wont die no matter how hard you beat it as long as you take care of basic maintence. Could use more power but it is only 2.2 4 cylinder not every expensive to maintain good gas milage Can be fun in the winter time or if you drive crazy. Good care if you need a get around town and long trips very reliable. Not a stunning car but it aint ugly either

    Pros: indestructable

    Cons: lack of power but its a 4 cylinder n

    Excellent Car !! — what a great car , the only thing i can fault it on is the windows , exactly the same problem as the rover 600 , performance is tuned for cruising on motorways but if you want to burn a boy racer off at the lights , you shouldnt have any problem . Very reliable , luxurious roomy interior and lots of toys , comfortable ride and good looks with a bit of performance thrown in , great for carting your kids around at high speed .

    Pros: everything

    Cons: weak window mechanism

    It's A Good Work Car..... — Cost of ownership- gas mileage is great and oil change like 1 every 3 months for 20 bucks- heck yeha! I have been in a couple accidents with it and am looking for parts for the front. I love driving this car... It's my first car and I still have it...

    Pros: It's great on gas milage!

    Cons: needs body work, and it's gettin old

    My 96 Honda Accord Ex-l V6 — Got the car this year in Feburary. I just needed a car to driving to classes and hospitals for the next 3 years. Car's performance is very good, it's the highest trim level and it came with a $700 deck and HID lights so i can't complain. It's got minor problems but for a 12 year old car it is definitely holding up well. If i had the money i would get the 2008 Accord coupe V6 because of this car.

    Pros: HIDs, nice deck, comfortable and V6 power without V6 fuel consumption

    Cons: Small dents, high mileage, minor problem with power locks

    Accord — A nice little 4-cylinder. It was my mother's. She drove it to work and back on a pretty far commute and it lasted a while. It was in an unfortunate accident, and kept my mother fairly safe only resulting in two fractured bones. The Airbags and brakes are the only downfalls to this purchase.

    Pros: Gas and Durability

    Cons: Brakes and Air Bags

    1996 Honda Accord. 123,000 Mi — Accelerates well for a 4 cylinder. Transmission shifts rough like all Hondas.. The drivers window shifts to the side a little going up so the seal on the outside is off. Stereo system is great for a stock system. Gets about 28mpg pretty much no matter how I drive it. Looks good. No rust.

    Pros: Clean, good MPG

    Cons: noise on the road

    It Was Worth It Back Then, But It's Crap Now. — Bought it new... in a champagne color. As you can see, it's silver now. 3-4 crashes and it's still not so bad. We left it a month on vacation in freezing weather and came back, and still started perfectly. Wheels are ugly. Plastic parts break easily (headlights, window motor, fake wood trim).

    Pros: GREAT gas mileage. Runs on regular.

    Cons: Plastic parts break easily.

    Gets Great Gas Mileage — Started driving it when I realized that I was spending over $500 a month on gas. Now I spend about half that. Its not a car that turns heads, but its a car that gets me to work, school, the bar and back without any problems.

    Pros: Gas mileage, big trunk for all my sports equipment, and a back seat.

    Cons: It blends in with the crowd.
