1987 Honda Accord EXi 2.0 from North America
A very quick runner that still gets 36 miles to the gallon
I had to replace the usual things, brakes, one wheel cylinder, a ball-joint, and two sets of tires. Overall, the car has been very reliable and relatively inexpensive for upkeep.
The shifting in the five speed is direct and smooth unlike a lot of other cars I've owned.
The handling is very good if you use a good set of 15" low profile tires.
But they are known as an EXi not LXi as people call them. LXi is an aftermarket parts model that autoparts stores use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm sorry, did you say that the LXI model is not a factory released option package for 1987 accords? in the US, that is ABSOLUTELY incorrect. If you are speaking about Canadian models, its possible, I wouldn't know. Ask your local Honda dealer, in fact to the best of my knowledge, there was no EXI model released in the US in 1987 (for ANY Honda model: civic, accord, motorcycle, ANYTHING.) I'm glad you like your Honda and have gotten good use out of it, but since other people read these reviews for advice on their purchases, misinformation is bad.
First the EX-i model is only made in Canada. If you try to go and buy parts from your local auto parts store they will not have any parts for the EX-i model, Only LX-i. LX-i is the American label for the accord.
I thought 87 Accords got 24 city, 30 highway? If their lucky? I average 25 both ways in the summer on my 87 Accord.
