1990 Honda Accord LX 2.2 from North America
It was worth the $2900 I spent on it
Shortly after purchase the car wouldn't start, had to replace the battery terminals.
A few months later the car wouldn't start again, replaced the starter switch.
Again a few months later the car wouldn't start, replaced the ignition coil.
After 9 months the car started overheating, replaced one of the radiator lines and the thermostat. Still overheats occasionally.
Paint is starting to chip off.
Radio antenna no longer moves up and down by itself.
Power side mirrors no longer work.
Tires could all stand to be replaced.
Generally dependable, after I got the ignition system fixed. This seems to be a common problem with older Accords.
Ugly ugly car, especially in baby blue with the paint coming off!
Cruises very nicely at highway speeds, but feels very weak going from a complete stop or up hills. Other sedans blow by me when the light turns green.
Excellent fuel economy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My brother has a '90 DX with a 5-speed. His has 186K miles, and it will still cream a new Neon. Granted, it is a base model, and it is lighter, but it isn't underpowered.
Also, did you have your distributer checked out when you were having ignition troubles? That is the only thing to go wrong with his car. As for the overheating, try to flush out your radiator, and check to make sure the electric fans are both working.
