Summary:

Great commuter/road trip car

Faults:

Replaced fuel filter

Need to replace CV joint/ball joint.

General Comments:

The interior is in great shape for a car of this year. Awesome handling, I believe the ex came with a rear stabilizer bar this year. Engine runs fine burns a little oil, but no big deal. Acceleration feels sluggish unless I rev it to the sky. However I've had a recurring problem of bad gas so that may be affecting it. Also the clutch doesn't grab like my little toyota used to, maybe its the difference in manufacturers. The shift into fifth is long as heck. Other than that this a great car that looks like it'll last me quite a few miles.

Summary:

One amazing car!

Faults:

Brake pads at 153,000 miles.

Fan relay at 157,000 miles.

Both Cv joints at 162,000 miles.

Collision with jeep at 178,000 miles.

General Comments:

Amazing car. Barely had any problems with it. Very fun to drive and has plenty of pickup. I've been looking all over for one just like it since the accident. 45 MPH into a 02 jeep grand Cherokee. The jeep lost and axle and the whole back passengers side was gone. My Honda got a little crumpled, but not serious damage. Since the car was old they called it totaled, but I towed it home and it ran like a charm. It was a shame to see it go. I would defiantly recommend this car to anyone.

Summary:

An engineering masterpiece

Faults:

The 1991 Automatic transmission control module (TCU) burned out twice. Each time I just bought one on ebay for $35 and I was good to go.

General Comments:

This car is almost old enough to vote and it's still reliable and gets good mileage. I put an exhaust header and performance intake on it to try to get a few more horsepower out of the motor and was somewhat successful. This car is fun and very functional. I am thinking of swapping out my automatic transmission for a 5 speed.

Summary:

Very good

Faults:

When I bought this car, I did Motor Vac cleaning, which I believe accidentally opened a vacuum leak at the upper intake manifold. Had to change the upper intake manifold gasket, was cracked in 4 places.

General Comments:

Excellent car, can't believe that it was made in 1991. All power, sunroof, cruise control. At this mileage, the engine is in very good condition, doesn't take any amount of oil, passed E test with flying colors.

The only thing I would like to have is a vacuum hoses diagram, this part is missing under my hood. If anyone owns this year EXR model, I would appreciate it if you could send it to me: ccodda1@excite.com

Hey, I'm looking at a 1991 Accord with about 350,000 kms on it. How long do you think that would last me? It seems to be in pretty good condition.

Summary:

Good car, but wish I had bought Camry Wagon instead

Faults:

Replaced the radiator.

Both front suspension springs cracked and replaced.

Had rust repaired on backside of both rear wheel wells.

Ended up replacing entire exhausts system from manifold to back (expensive).

Automatic antenae bent and now replacement keeps coming out, I drive without it and plan on disabling motor and installing simple manual antenae.

Engine wouldn't start when hot and replaced main relay.

Distributor bolt froze and snapped in distributor - pain to get out.

The above are said to be very common repairs on this type of Accord.

Replaced heat control cables (had to remove dash).

Stupid mechanic also replaced the ignitions control module instead of main relay.

Replaced slave cylinder on clutch.

General Comments:

Over all a reliable car, but it seems things like radiators, front springs, main relays, rust behind rear wheels and antennas are weak points on this car. Parts are expensive also and it is recommended to use genuine Honda parts since the after market parts are poor.

The clutch may need to be overhauled. Shifting is not smooth and car shudders when starting off in 1rst unless I rev up the engine.

Pretty good acceleration and cornering. Handles snow OK now that I've got tires with good blocky treads and manual helps. Car is a little noisy. I have a hitch and tow a little trailer for garden manure etc, and the manual is good for that too.

I am disappointed in the fuel economy. I get about 24/28 even with a fresh tune up and driving conservatively. My old VW Quantum got that with AWD transmission.

Car is a little too low to the ground for my tastes.

I wish there was more cargo room behind rear seat. My VW Quantum had more room and weighed about the same even with AWD.

I don't think reliability and ease of maintenance is as good as Toyota. I owned an 86 Corolla and 79 Corona wagon and seemed to be easy and cheap to repair. I test drove a 95 Camry Wagon at the time which drives like a boat in comparison, but I would now wish I had bought it for its better reliability and greater cargo space (fuel economy is the same even with the V6).
