Once It's Running It's Good It Got Me And My Family From San Francisco To Las Vegas — I have no review it is still running but it needs a lot of work and care. Other then that this Honda is a gas saver, if I had the money I'll buy another car like a van for the family.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It was free my sister gave it to me

Cons: The radiator has a hole in it. So I need a new one plus it needs motor mounts

Best Car For Its Price — This car is one of the best cars you can buy for under $3,000. It is very reliable and will get you where you need to go with no problems. It is very good for road trips. Although it is not a huge car, you can fit most things you would bring along when you travel. It is great on gas aslong as you're not a crazy driver. It is a perfect first car for anyone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It gets great gas mileage. It is a very comfortable car to drive. Very reliable, and easy to maintain.

Cons: Transmission is going bad, which is common for most honda's of this age.

This Is A Wonderfully Reliant Car. — Loved everything about this car - reliable, quiet, smooth shifting, looks nice, lots of room in car and trunk. This was my 3rd Honda Accord and my next car will be a 2010 Honda Accord - after I'm able to part with/sell this one!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent  for 16 years! Love driving a manual car!

Cons: Haven't gotten the dent in the trunk fixed nor the small rust patch on passenger side door. Other than that, it polishes up very nicely!

I Miss My Car... — My very first car I've owned, and I fell in love with it when I sat in the driver's seat and it took me anywhere I wanted to go without any problems. I miss her so much... Good bye Acco-chan....

Pros: Awesome Car

Cons: Could have better MPG

Great Car For A Low Budget Family — This car has everything for a family: seating space, cargo space and power. Don't be fooled by it's looks as it has some power under the hood. Couple all that with great mpg and voila! My car has almost 20,000 miles on it and shows no sign of slowing down or struggling.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great on gas. Lots of cargo space. That car just keeps running!

Cons: Not a single guy car.

A Grandpa's Car That Means A Lot Of Fun For Almost No Money. — Performance: Very, very fast, and accelerates like the devil. Build Quality: It's Honda, so its very reliable... if it has been taking care of, if not, you are going to have lots of time having fun with the front lights. Appearance: Dull on the exterior, and a nice place to be in the interior. It's a grandpa's car, so don't expect nothing "stylish", nice, but conservative. Cost of ownership: The car almost runs by itself, Gas mileage is very, very good (drove it with emergency lights for hours). Maintenance is very cheap. Fun Factor: Fast, Accelerates well, the steering is super precise and super sharp, the stereo is remarkable, and it has a sunroof. Yeah, you'll have fun. Lots of.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, cheap to run, awe-inspiring handling and acceleration. Stereo quality that resembles divine perfection.

Cons: The odd front light bulbs, the bipolar heating system,  the car insulation.
