1991 Honda Accord LX Sedan 2.2L SOHC from North America
Almost 180,000 miles and still rolling!
The CV axles, radiator, and clutch had to be replaced at around 140,000 miles.
I have been constantly battling with the front brakes. I have yet to get them back to original feel.
A/C causes clutch to overheat. Cannot use Max A/C without problems.
This car is a masterpiece of automotive engineering. It's comfortable, simple, reliable, efficient, and elegant. It is definitely my favorite generation Accord.
Overall it has been a very reliable daily driver. It is definitely starting to show its age, but it still runs strong. The 91 feels more solid than my girlfriend's 96 Accord.
It is rather sporty for a family sedan (especially with the 5-speed), and it gets excellent gas mileage. I average about 31 mpg.
The interior is very comfortable making it an excellent trip car. The controls are very simple and driver oriented.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My stepfather bought a 1990 Accord EX-R with 293000 miles about 4 months ago and it runs like a charm. IT does have a few issues, valvetrain noise and the tranny seems to slip a bit once in a while, but other than that there hasn't been any trouble with it. Sure, the AC and cruise doesn't work, but the body doesn't have one single rust hole, anywhere!
