1987 Honda Accord LXi Hatchback 2.0 from North America
Timing belt replaced at 90k miles as recommended. Did not replace again until 264,000 miles.
Carpeting is showing some wear, but after 25 years it's expected.
Brake power booster and master cylinder finally got replaced at 264k miles. But again, it's probably well-beyond its time.
We've driven this car now for 196,000 miles. It's 25 years old and perhaps one of the most RELIABLE and inexpensive cost of ownership vehicles we've ever owned! By the way, we've owned Lexus, Nissan, Toyota and Mazda vehicles over the past 20+ years. While most cars were great, this Honda beats them all. This is perhaps attributed to their solid manufacturing quality and routine maintenance.
Since ownership of this vehicle (20 years), we've spent approximately $4,200 over the life. On an annual basis, that’s about $210. This is absolutely amazing!
It’s still an awesome, extremely reliable, and well-maintained vehicle. We consistently receive accolades for its condition. We plan on keeping it for another year and hope to sell it for top $.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
