    According To Me. —

    First off, I <3 my Honda. These are some of the most reliable cars on the road. I haven't had a problem with this car and the odometer reads a scant 225,000 miles. :D The interior is ergonomically designed, everything is in reach and easy to adjust. I would have to say the exterior is one of the best looking cars of it's time, and even now. I have done some cosmetic modifications that really make it look aggressive. But it's a far cry from The Fast And The Furious. (thankfully, I hate those stupid ricers :P) On to performance, this car is not crazy fast (remember is a family sedan) but when it has the 5-speed manual transmission, it's a peppy car. It accepts modifications like it's own, and you really notice a difference when you install just a few bolt-ons. Left stock you will get about 32mpg on the highway, and even with a few mods it still returns the amount or even greater if it's properly tuned. It really just sips the gas. :) Though it's not the fastest car it is certainly one of the most fun to drive. The steering is exact, the brakes are strong and pedal feel is solid, and when you need to get on the highway, there is plenty of power to get you up to speed quickly. All in all this is a great car to have, it's reliable, good looking, and fun to drive.

    Pros: Everything`

    Cons: This Generation of accords has an issue with the front power windows. Thy are slow and sometimes they quit working all together. But that's a small issue for such a great car.

    The Quintessential "nice Car" — Purchased car used in 2004, with 67,000 miles on it. It was in good condition, except for the alloy wheels. The wheels that Honda equipped all the '97 SE Accords with are prone to corrosion. Almost every other SE Accord I see has the same problem. Other than that, I love the car. At this point, it has 115,000 miles on it. My only concern is the clunky gearchanges from the automatic transmission. The interior is still attractive. As is the exterior. The design has aged very very well.

    Pros: Still attractive after all these years. Solid build quality and reliability.

    Cons: Honda made a bad choice of alloys for this model.

    Love The Car — I've driven it for a year, and its been amazing. Has 87,000 miles and I wouldn't be surprised if I could put over 200,000 more on it.

    Pros: Fabulous look (inside and outside). Great handling and very reliable.

    Cons: Small engine, so occasionally it'll take a couple extra seconds to "get up
    and go", but it doesn't bother me.
