Accord — I never thought I would ever buy a Honda. This car is amazing! It was pricier than my Mustang and Eclipse combined, but it is definitely worth it! The only problem I've had with this car is that the Power Steering pump went out. I'm the second owner and it has 136xxx miles on it. The car is beautiful inside and out. Maintenance is very inexpensive, I get around 33 MPG. It is a stick so I have fun driving it. It has a very straight forward style to it, not my favorite body style by Honda, but it does the job. I'm more of a sports car guy, but being a college student, thats not the best option right now.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Pretty much everything.

Cons: Nothing really

This Is A Very Great Beginner Car To Teach Beginners How To Drive! — I have owned a 1998 Honda Accord LX for nearly 4 years now (May 2007) with minimal expected repair costs. Including regularly scheduled maintenance I have invested roughly $1,800 in repair costs ($800 of that in a timing belt + water pump change). I purchased the car for $6,200 + tax and title which brought the grand total to $7,000. If you calculate the 46 months I have owned the car it has cost me $191.30 a month to keep this car on the road (under $50/wk). Not the greatest in the world, but still very respectable for the reputable Honda nameplate. I cannot vouch on behalf of the 6 cylinder Accords but I heard that they had tranny problems so my personal recommendation would be to stick with the 4 bangers.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very easy to drive, acceleration is sufficient enough, stylish, low maintenance, nice-sized cup holder, deep glove box, decent highway MPG

Cons: Road noise (its not a cadillac), no 60/40 folding seats, old style trunk hinge, uses up more oil than normal

Love It And Will Drive Till It Dies — This car is really easy to customize and pretty much ever part can be replaced so if your credit card has room you can keep going. The 2.3 liter vtech is an amazing engine. Fun to drive yet still gets great gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, very reliable, and practical

Cons: Not the fastest thing in the world

Well Its Better Than A Rust Bucket — Lots of ROAD NOISE Slow acceleration in the beginning. Feels like a Diesel Boat Effect (High from the front and low from the back) Things that have fail: Power Locks Something in the bottom that is for the Catalytic Converter(don't kill the car, it just gives you 1MPG some how) Windows get fog up really fast and take forever to unfog

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its okay and a Honda

Cons: LOAD ROAD NOISE

Comfortable,but Slow — Comfortable, not fast though. Leather interior makes it seem nicer than it really is. Could use a V6 for a little more horsepower here and there. Its fun to drive, but wouldn't recommend it to those seeking a good time.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Interior

Cons: Engine Capabilities

Quick Sedan For Its Huge Stance And Very Roomy And Fully Loaded (y) !! — I loved to drive this car, very smooth ride, the K&N filter made it breather more and acceleration kicked asses - honda civic crx standard, toyota celica 94, lincoln ls off line. This car is very fun to drive, i always kept it clean and it always held up for me, I will miss this car very much . <3 Honda Accord

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

Pros: Quick, has balls, sweeet room for interior

Cons: nothing i can think of...
