Summary:

Agile, reliable, and loads of fun!

Faults:

The trunk leaks excessively through the tail lights. This has been labeled as a manufacturer's defect.

The power antenna is a pain. Mine broke twice, and the antenna motor died. $250.00 to fix that. Just go to any local store and buy a basic antenna to prevent hassle and cost.

Light rear end, the rear drum brakes loved to lock up on emergency stops.

Funny low-back seats are not for everyone.

General Comments:

This car was amazing. Absolutely amazing. My father purchased this car originally, and put the first 150,000 miles on it, and passed it down to me.

As a high school car, I beat up this thing ruthlessly. Even though I dropped the transmission at 160,000k, the clutch was everlasting. The cars suspension is still original and working mint. The brakes were replaced only twice, throughout all 175,000 miles thanks to the light weight body.

The coupe was fun, I personally loved the huge windows on a sunny day. Made a sun-roof almost pointless!

The overall performance was excellent for the cost. The eager motor, and excellent manual shifting made this car a blast. I managed to take 80MPH turns on a windy road with minimal under-steer and tire squeal. It's a great used car, especially for the youngster!

Summary:

Good

Faults:

* Radiator hose has leaked.

* Needed tire camber adjusted.

* Shakes in reverse.

These problems are probably from running it too hard. My Accord has been airborne. It can beat mostly stock Civics, Neons, Cavaliers, Celicas, Jettas, Saturns and runs even with auto V6 Camaros and Firebirds. You just need to leave it in drive 1 when you take off, then move the handle up to drive 2, then 4 when it starts to slow down.

General Comments:

The Accord is my first car I've had for about 2 years. Very happy having a model DX coupe, it's rather rare.

Added an intake and Apex exhaust. Added clear headlights,corners and bumpers. Looking for Altezza style lights for the back. Also added carbon fiber "H" emblems on the front, back and steering wheel.

Although, I wish it were stick. The sport button is always on... the Accord is the only car I've seen one on.

Very sporty and reliable. I'm happy.

Re the driver's side window track. That was a horrible pain for mine -- never rolled up right, and wind scream. Well, the dealership just lubed the rubber and it rolls up much, much easier & won't need replacing after all.

Summary:

Sweet

Faults:

Nothing other than the automatic shifter is rather stiff to remove from park.

General Comments:

The car is very sporty. It is a great car because it is very sporty and fast and does not cost much to keep running. It is a big welcome change from the massive 4.3L I used to drive.

Shifter cable requires replacement. Corrosion in the cable case makes them hard to get in and out of park only.

Summary:

One of the best for the money

Faults:

Bought it wrecked, replaced tranny making a rubbing noise from crash. Rusting over rear wheel wells. Sports light blinks now after replacing tranny... that's all I can think of.

General Comments:

Will last forever (or as close as cars come). Makes a great first car for someone and fairly easy to work on and get to things. Honda makes a very, very reliable car. Only wish I had it in manual instead... that's my ONLY regret about that car.

Chronic problem with the power antenna freezing up in cold weather causing the antenna shaft to stick and eventually bend, which could strip the antenna motor. Aside from this just normal maintainence.

General Comments:

Great car. Even better when you add an aftermarket exhaust and intake filter and header. Gives it more personality. Also, drop the suspension with lowering springs 1.8" and you've got a great handling car as well.
