Bland But Incredibly Reliable — Overall, this car is outdated and could use a different transmission. Beside that, its a reliable machine that works really well as a daily driver. Even in the snow, I trust this car completely. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a second car as a winter beater or a daily driver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, fits anywhere when parking, great cargo space, inexpensive to fix, still good on gas after 15 years

Cons: Transmission is suspect, boring to look at

Reliable And Dependable — The car handles great; has a nice fit and finish; and looks attractive. It has lasted me 14 years and only had a few major unexpected repairs such as had to replace the radiator after it sprung a leak and had to replace some of the smog components (catalytic converter) and sensors after they failed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great on gas mileage; very comfortable ride for commuting.  Enough bells and whistles for its time that it still feels modern.  Easy DIY for minor fixes.

Cons: Manufacture defect regarding clear coat causes it to peel off after several years leaving the appearance unattractive.  Honda has never been willing to recall and fix (to my knowledge).

The One That Got Away :( Lol —

This car has always been close for me & my dad our first car ever we bought at a used car lot it was just imported from Singapore Performance: yall all know about honda's and vtec's yea i love the 2.0 vtec braking was spot on for this ride , handling wasn't that bad cause its FWD Build Quality: well me & dad had an accident that's when everything started to go bad from there nearly all our money went into this accord cause it was part of the fam but parts were hard to get and expensive so yea wish-bone broke and because it was a auto-transmisson after the accident it always had problems switching gear the car would rev and wouldn't change gear for a few minutes, sometimes you might just have to turn off the engine and turn it back on... Apperance: well in my opinion i love the look of the Accord LX has that sporty sedan look ...interior was really okay for me loved the black leather and not to many buttons on it which was just good for me mileage was great fun to drive especially when VTEC KICKED IN YO! ;) lol jks jks this car has always got a special place in my heart! was kinda sad when Dad sold it...and he didn't even told me after being from my country for almost 6 years i came back to see an Indian man bought it and is driving it proudly ....i see he fixed her up and she also has a new spoiler happy to see she okay :)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: love everything about it cause it was my first

Cons: well i can't think of any so ill just put because its FWD lol

I Love My Car. — I like everything. I just hate when people try to use it for performance and its not meant for it. you can make it look good just not have speed. get a 300zx or impreza wrx sti if you want all the performance.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its reliable. parts are cheap to many online website and you can build for looks

Cons: not built for power. only 150 horses stock not very strong got a little zoom zoom though

1998 Honda Accord Lx — Since I got my car in 2010, it's been very reliable. It handles exceptionally well for a sedan, decent acceleration, and very good braking. So far, it hasn't needed any repairs. It has a lot of leg room, both in the front and the back. It has decent gas mileage; much better than bigger vehicles. Overall, it is very fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The interior is very spacious and it has a low maintenance cost.

Cons: The power and acceleration could be better, but it is only a 4 cylinder - 2.3L engine.

Responsible, Affordable, And Awesome. — Originally purchased as a family car, I have come to own it as a bachelor and it has proved its worth from helping friends move to a night on the town. I am convinced this car will start in an arctic winter although I have not actually tried. It has never let me down and survived a few medium grade accidents without major cost to my health or wallet. It is easy to maintain and does not ask much of its owner. It will survive some serious neglect (from the previous primary driver) and most maintenance codes are affordable fixes with the exception of the timing belt but that applies to all cars.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Economic home run from fuel to maintenance to replacement parts one of the best cars to own hands down. Great for City or Highway driving. A lot of easy DIY maintenance can be performed.

Cons: Low power, Will not get you noticed
