Summary:

This car has been a great investment and I would buy another Honda in a heart-beat!

Faults:

In 10 years, almost nothing other than regular maintenance. The driver-side power window motor is about to die, but I'm surprised it took this long!!

General Comments:

This car rides very well, is very reliable, and looks great! I bought it in a hurry when my previous Honda Civic was totaled in an accident (thanks to a red-light running Ford Explorer). Purchased from someone in sales, the Accord had a lot of miles when it was just 2 years old, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Visibility is great in this car, which helps a lot in congested, city driving. Lots of seating control allows me (and any other guest driver) to establish a great driving position. Still looks great - people are always surprised to find out its age. Have had a few parking lot scrapes and one fender-bender; the repairs don't show much with the light gold color. Leather interior helps... a little Armour All and it keeps a crisp look even at the ripe old age of 12.

I sometimes miss having a little bit sportier-looking car (like the Civic Coupe that got destroyed), but I must not miss it too much because I'm rolling year 10 with the Accord this month. I'm at 201,000 miles now and planning to make it to 300,000.

Summary:

Great for poor college kids

Faults:

The only things I have had to buy for this car, in two years and 40,000 miles, is 1 control arm, 1 ball joint, and a set of new tires (which I am going to get later this month).

General Comments:

This will probably be the best car I ever own. I reccomend it so much to kids that have to go to school (like me) and as a result can't afford to spend $500 a month on repairs/customizations on their car. Granted, it is a Honda, so it is plain, small, thin, and generaly a "boring car", but it will be the best INVESTMENT you will make if you can't afford to constantly spend money on a car, whether it be in repairs or payments.

On a side note, I bought the car in good condition, with 140,000 miles, and I plan on selling it in a few months, in which it will probably have 180,000 miles. I bought the car for $5500 and have recently been offered $3800 for it. I think that depreciation value is excellent. Great for poor college kids, rich college kids should buy an Audi.

If you like this car so much, why did you give it a sad face?

This is the original poster, I can't believe I found this, or even remembered that I posted this. Oh yeah, I didn't mean to have a sad face, I don't remember why that is on there. Maybe the ratings I had to do? I don't know.

Anyway, I still have the car. Now it has 240,000 miles, and drives great. Since that post I have had a new thermostat put in and the brakes done. That's it. I guess I got the opposite of a lemon or something. It drives straight, doesn't make a whole lot of noise, gets great mileage, etc. I think it depends on the driver somewhat, and I have always driven this car slow.

Summary:

I loved my Accord!!!

Faults:

- Had a handful of problems with the brakes, they never seemed to be in A+ condition for long, although I was probably a little hard on them

- Developed a moderate left lean on the steering

- Blinkers stopped working once, had to have them replaced.

General Comments:

Turning radius wasn't fabulous, acceleration was pretty good, hardly had any problems despite mileage over 100k, car is pretty roomy, good-looking and comfortable, GREAT value, felt like it could have kept running for another 100k!

Unfortunately I was in an accident and totaled the car. Despite the fact that I was hit pretty hard on the left front, I walked away with not even a bruise. For this reason I will say that this vehicle is very safe!
