    Honda Go Broom Broom — Great car. Purple Exterior Gray leather interior This is my first car and i love it to death. complete aftermarket sound system that has gotten me 4 noise pollution tickets. at times the trunk pops open because theres too much pressure built up from the subwoofer(s) in the back =D No aftermarket performance parts.

    Decent Daily — On the heavy side, gas mileage is okay at best but is roomy and fits my needs for a daily short distance driver.

    Pros: Comfy, spacious, low maintenance, 5-speed

    Cons: Heavy, gas mileage, old guy-ish

    Very Nice! — This car is sweet! It has decent gas mileage, about 25 city/highway. It handles really well, and the 4 anti-lock brakes grip well. It runs about 150 hp and 150 ft\lbs torque in a 4 cylinder VTEC engine. There is plenty of room even in the 2 door. Outsanding trunk space, head/leg room for both driver and passenger and plenty of room in the engine bay (if thats what you're into :0). Plus its a Honda and generally speaking they last forever.

    Pros: Lots of room, good power, love the car

    Cons: INSURANCE!!!

    The Legend — It's a decent car, gets you from point A to point B, looks sharp in the front. Nice interior, looks newer than it is, pretty good engine, amazing trunk space, decent back seat space

    Pros: Amazing trunk, pretty decent acceleration, cool headlights, quite fun to drive

    Cons: There was a recall on this issue, dents too easily, dents seem unremovable, car crumbles too easily, gas mileage sucks

    Honda Accord 2.0 Se — Well what can I say about Hondas, built to last forever... or until the body decides to give up and fall. This was my faimily car, I drove it for the past few years, long journey through Europe, for work... for a '98 car it still drives nicely, of course compared the the Fiat it lacks in every aspect... well except leg room for people in the back and visibility. Bits might fall off but the engine will still go forever. Exhaust might need replacement after a few years, cam belt and radiator might leak.

    Pros: Goes on forever, cheap maintenance, engine will last 10 years before anything goes wrong:)

    Cons: Old... body will eventually start to rust, things might fall off.

    Great Car — This car was bought used and had been in an accident. The price was great ( I bought in in 2004 ) and has been trouble free until this brake problem arose. It has about 150,00 miles and gets regular oil changes and other maintenance.

    Pros: Good looking. Nice power for a 4 cylinder.

    Cons: Can't think of any

    Reliable Fun Or Fun Reliability? — My 1998 4-cylinder Honda Accord LX 4-door was the first car I ever bought new. After owning a used 88 Honda Prelude and a 90 Acura Integra, I was already familiar with Honda quality and reliability. In the 98 Accord, Honda’s quality and reliability were ever present. However, the Accord was significantly larger than the Prelude and Integra I previously owned and I was afraid that the increased size and weight would make the Accord more of a family hauler and less of a fun driver. I was pleasantly proven wrong. Unlike many Toyotas I have driven which are very well built and thoughtfully designed but not remotely driver focused, Honda always seems to inject their products – be they sport coupe or sedans – with the drive enjoyment. Honda’s, like most other Japanese auto manufactures, has really nailed down quality. From engineering excellence to low-cost operation, the Japanese have lead the way for decades. Striving for such excellence has brought us a slew of “characterless” appliances that have us expecting trouble-free operation with little or no effort on our part. If all you desire or expect from you car is reliability and years of trouble-free operation, I see a Camry in your future. If you want reliability and feel like you’re participating in the driving experience, Accord is your choice. True, there are some Camry models that have a decidedly more sporty edge but every Accord, from the base DX to the highline EX-V6 have driving enjoyment designed into them from the start and you don’t have to pay extra for the privilege. My 98 Accord LX was very basic. It was a 5-speed with no options. This doesn’t mean it was a stripper. In LX trim, the 98 Accord included a manual multi-adjustable driver’s seat, power windows and door locks, cruise control and air conditioning and a 4-speaker stereo with cassette (no CD). One of the things I wish the LX model had was better brakes. The disc/drum set-up worked fine but lacked ABS as standard equipment. You need to move up to the EX trim package to get 4-wheel discs with ABS as standard and, the gift of hindsight would now have me consider the EX over the LX for this very reason (not to mention extra toys like a sunroof and CD –player). The quiet and refined 4-cylinder puts out a very usable 150 horsepower and the 5-speed manual is crisp and fluid. Together they provided the best balance between power and economy (mid-30 mpg on the highway). The lighter inline-4 was well balanced in this chassis and I never felt overworked or at a loss for power and it was the first Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) sold in the State of California. What I truly enjoyed about my Accord was how the engine, transmission and steering all worked together to create a very capable sports car with the convenience of a large back seat and two extra doors. My Accord and I spent many a weekend exploring the myriad of twisty canyon roads Southern California has to offer. Each trip was a joy. How many cars can offer you driving excitement and utter reliability in the same package? In my opinion this generation Accord is a best buy if you want Japanese reliability and driving enjoyment yet, even with all the kudos that this car hard rightfully earned it too suffers a bit from the generic-car syndrome that afflicts Japanese products. Perhaps this is the double-edge sword that consumers need to embrace if they want reliability. Fortunately, Honda throws a little spice into this recipe to keep us awake behind the wheel. As for me, I’m willing to give up a bit of reliability for more personality. I now drive a VW Passat. Never the less, I still have very fond memories of my Accord. Thanks Honda.
