1987 Honda Accord LX 2.0 from North America
Too good to be true,... or is it?
This is my first car, I just got this car from my neighbor:
Manual transmission broke at 228.357, cost 250.00 to repair.
Air conditioner broke, will repair.
Brake pads changed, 50.00.
RPM started going extremely high for no reason at all, at 229.000, fixed for $0.
I love this car, first of all it is very reliable and fast in low gears.
This car lives in high RPM's, three to four thousand when driving a slope.
Very economical, 30mpg!
Handles corners very well and gains speed fast.
What makes this car even greater is that it's a manual, not an automatic. Way more fun to drive.
Gas pedal is located uncomfortably, so you have to flex your foot all the time, but you do get used to it.
Seats are comfortable and low, I like it.
A little more horse power would not hurt.
The problem that occurred to it was that it started getting wild RPM's for no reason, and the longer it worked, the more they grew!From 2 thousand to 3, just standing. Then it would just die, an if you didn't press the clutch, the car would just stop. I thought it was the end of the line for my "Quality Japanese Car"
How I fixed the problem: Some Honda Accords start getting wild RPM's and shanking that no one knows how to fix, but before getting rid of your Honda, disconnect the computer from the engine. Locate a black box under the hood in the top left corner, open the side with a flat screw driver, disconnect all wires, close box. Let car run, and in about a week RPM's should go back to normal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
