I believe this car has suffered from normal wear and tear. The previous owners took very good care of the car.
The power antenna motor switch in the middle of the car does not raise or lower the radio antenna.
The cruise control master button is always in the "on" position.
The power windows are slow.
The hand brake is weak and will not hold unless it is completely pulled.
The seat belt "reminder" sound does not work whenever the engine is started without the driver wearing the seat belt.
The turn signal lights have burned out and I have had to replace them.
On Tuesday, 20 July, 2004, the fuel pump failed. The car would not start. It had to be towed to the dealership and replaced.
In December 2004, the red brake light on the dashboard was always on and would not go out. Whenever I pushed the brake pedal to stop or slow down, the brakes would make a loud "squeaking" noise. At 138,217 miles, I drove the car to the dealership and the mechanics found a leak in the master brake cylinder. The brakes also had to be replaced.
In Spring 2005, the car would shake rigourously whenever the engine was stopped and the key was removed from the ignition. At 143,045 miles, the carburettor gasket had to be replaced. The water pump was also found to be leaking due to its age. This part and the engine drive belts were replaced.
I purchased my 1987 Honda Accord LX four-door sedan on Friday, 28 May, 2004, from the original owners. The car was in absolutely perfect condition with no problems whatsoever. The owners kept organised records of every repair, service, and other work ever done on the vehicle since they purchased it, brand new, on Wednesday, 6 May, 1987. I also found an old business card from the salesman and dealership which sold the people the car inside a small coin box located on the dashboard.
I had always wanted a Honda Accord as my first car. They are very reliable and safe cars. This is the perfect for me. I think the Honda Accord is the best car on the road, and I will not purchase any other car.
The previous owners told me that this car had never left them stranded on the side of any highway for as long as they owned it. I believed them. Since I have owned and driven the car, it has been absolutely wonderful for me. It has always transported me where I wanted to go with no problems. I try my best to keep the car in perfect condition as the previous owners did. I absolutely love this car!
