1990 Honda Accord LX 2.2 SOHC 16 valve from North America

Summary:

Great car. Will drive it until the wheels fall off

Faults:

Lower passenger side ball joint.

Water pump gave out at 220987.

Rust over the rear wheels.

Valve cover gasket leaks into number 1 plug.

Fast idle control valve replaced for 10 bucks eBay.

General Comments:

Great reliable car. Will always start, and will take a beating. There have been times I've taken it to the red line and dropped the clutch (probably why I need axles).

The steering is very responsive.

It will gain a substantial amount of HP with minor mods (cold air intake, headers, bored out throttle body, fuel injection cleaner).

Definitely a daily driver. Great gas mileage.

1990 Honda Accord LX Coupe 2.3 from North America

Summary:

The best car ever made is the Accord

Faults:

Replaced gas tank at 250k miles.

Rear panel around wheel area began to rust at 180k miles, minor body work with fiberglass or Bondo filler.

Replaced main relay at 100k miles and 240k miles.

Replaced the radiator at 220k miles.

General Comments:

This automobile is really a reliable mode of transportation. I have driven it throughout the U.S. from California to Maine and from New York to Florida on an annual basis at extreme temperatures, cold New England winters during Christmas and hot Arizona summers during July 4th.

It handles 70 mph like a charm with the quick ability to pass at 85+ mph. The steering feels smooth at high speed. The engine revs calmly at 2700 rpm while going the Interstate speed limit.

1990 Honda Accord LX 2.2L 4 Cylinder from North America

Summary:

Reliable little Champion!

Faults:

Water pump gave out at 320,000.

Radiator Hoses started leaking at 340,000.

General Comments:

Incredible reliability! I have spend less than $2,000 on this car with over 341k miles on it over the course of 3 years. The exterior and interior are in great shape, and I keep thinking that this car has to break sometime, but it just keeps on going. And it runs strong too, I can go up a steep freeway on-ramp and easily get it up to 70mph and it doesn't feel like the car is working too hard. The engine is smooth and powerful for being a little 4 banger!

1990 Honda Accord LX 2.2 gasoline from North America

Summary:

Reliable little car

Faults:

Clutch needs replaced so it can't really be driven right now. (this is typical for a manual car to have to replace the clutch)

My Rear tail light doesn't work, tried a new bulb, but it didn't work. It's probably in the wiring I'll have to get to it later.

Valve Cover Seal leaks fluently (common for a 16 year old car) about a $15 seal.

Timing needs re-adjusted, but again common for a car of its age.

Both Passenger and Driver Door Handles busted.

Rust on one passenger side of car behind the rear fender wells.

All other cosmetic issues were due to previous owner's negligence.

General Comments:

ALWAYS STARTS even at -35 degrees!!!

Can't really rate the power yet since the clutch is unresponsive.

It's comfortable and reliable and I can't wait to get it fixed!!!

Very Fuel Efficient.

He only got 244 miles out of it before the clutch crapped out.

But they were a very reliable 244 miles! 10/10!

1990 Honda Accord DX from North America

Summary:

Great little car, which is why everyone wants to steal it

Faults:

Bought with rust on hood, and a little along doors.

Fuel pump at 150,000 (about 300$ to fix)

Hole in exhaust system near muffler at 145,000 (about 100$ to fix)

Drivers side window off the track around 145,000 (fixable without money)

Alternator at 155,000 (about 300$ to fix)

Starter is going bad, but has not yet failed.

Speedometer and odometer stopped working at 155,000.

Has been stolen, and broken into on several occasions.

General Comments:

This is a great little first car. Things will go wrong with it, but I've never been stranded.

Seats are fairly comfortable, although they start to squeak after a while.

Unfortunately, this car is VERY steal-able. Mine has been stolen once, and the CD player was taken out. I beg you to keep this in mind when purchasing one.

These cars are fairly light, and are just a little loopy in the rain. Make sure you have some good WET tires on yours.
