1987 Honda Accord LX 2.0 Liter from North America
The best first car for any high school or college kid!
Nothing major has gone wrong with this car.
One of the only things I had to do was replace the thermostat.
This car is one of the best vehicles on the road.
It was recently hit in a parking lot at 45 miles per hour and I could still turn it over and drive it wherever I wanted to!
I would highly recommend it to any one who wants a college car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am the proud owner of a 1990 Honda Accord LX. My problem is with the ignition switch. It wants to keep the key in cold weather. It almost impossible to extract the key in cold weather. Is this a common problem, and if so, is there a cheap fix or a secret warranty.
My '87 Accord had the same problem, except it was the door locks. I first sprayed WD40 into the keyholes to clean the locks, then applied grease to the keys and stuck them into the locks, worked like a charm..
On my current 87' Accord I cannot lock my door without lifting the door handle and pushing the button down to lock it... You can't open the door and push the button down like all other cars... probably something wrong with my locks or something?
You have nothing wrong with your locks at all. All Honda's do it. It is to prevent your self from locking your keys in the car. Many times it is too easy to lock your car and forget your keys. With this clever system, you must think about where you left your keys before you lock your doors. I have yet to lock my keys inside my Honda.
