1989 Honda Accord LX 2.0 from North America
Radiator started leaking at 180,000.
This car has truly been unbelievable.
Reliability is unsurpassed, in 230,000 miles I have done nothing but replace the radiator for $75. Air conditioning does need to be replaced.
Handling still is great, acceleration has never been an issue with the five speed.
There is no rust on this car and overall the integrity cannot be matched by any other.
I drive many highway miles and average 35-40 miles per gallon. Can't beat that!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree, I have nothing, but positive things to say about this car, as it appears so does everyone else. I commute over 40 miles a day to college with this (mostly highway)...I've had it for 2.5 years, bought it with over 200 thousand miles on it. I HAVE had to replace battery, brakes, radiator, and muffler, but it was all relatively easy, cheap and fast repairs... I mean, it DOES have 250 thousand miles now so ya gotta expect things will need replacing once in a while... these cars are easy to fix if needed. I was thinking about trading it in for a volvo or something, but after some research its just not worth it!!! I love this thing and I will keep it till it dies which probably will never happen!!! I highly recommend this car.

1989 Honda Accord LX excellent little car. Very roomy, sporty, handles well, great gas mileage. has 306,000kms. Original front end parts. Everything works! A/C still good! Excellent automatic transmission. BUT the alternator is a PAIN to replace. easy to adjust belt tension. Catalytic converter plugged up. Played havoc on the motor. I guess a lot of the motor parts are vacuum run, i.e. the transmission. Bigger tires a a good upgrade, the pizza cutter 13 inchers don't do. Nice car overall, exteremely reliable.
