1992 Honda Accord EX 2.1 from North America


Everyone should own a Honda.


ABS light won't shut off, but the anti-lock brakes work fine.

The driver side window goes down very slow, other doors are fine.

General Comments:

This vehicle is the best one I have ever owned, I wouldn't trade this one for another car, I would keep it and purchase another one if needed. This car is very reliable and dependable when in need. I think everyone should own a Honda.

This car is very well made


I am having a very big leak in the trunk of my car. It leaks into the spare tire comparment and I am having a lot of trouble finding the leak.

General Comments:

This car is very reliable, but because it is an older car it has it's ups and downs.

1992 Honda Accord LX 2.2 Liter from North America


CV joints pop.

Ball joints broke @189,000 miles.

Needed gas tank (normal Vermont rust)

Needed brake work 2 times in 6 months.

Needed clutch (due to a kid taking my car without asking and blowing it... slipped all the time)

Oil leaks everywhere (just cuz its old)

General Comments:

I have loved this car. It has been probably the most reliable car I've ever owned... and I'm only 19. I've owned 6 cars so far because I work on them adding aftermarket parts. The accord is so much better than the civic in my opinion. I don't know how they do it- Honda makes such a good rig.

I would definitely recommend this car to anyone who is young and needs a reliable first car. Go for it if you find a good deal. The only thing about Honda is that you have to be careful of rust. There can be little on the exterior, but watch for those rear strut towers... -they can have holes and rust spots.

I have never changed the timing belt since I've had it (at 168k miles). Never! Probably should though... but selling the car soon and buying a 1995 Dodge Neon that I know for fact is reliable.

Dodge is not a very good car. I had a dodge neon and the engine blew twice in 2 years and both engines where new and yet they still blew!!! Now I have accord and it runs great I would stay with the accord it will run better and last a lot longer.

1992 Honda Accord LX 2.2L 125hp 4 cylinder from North America


Despite the legendary name, Honda is not all they crack up to be


Left and right upper control arms busted and needed replacing.

Catalytic converter literally fell apart leaving pieces lodged in the exhaust system.

Back dog legs rusting out.

Bad oil leak.

Power steering line broke because it rusted out. (not a pleasant feeling loosing steering come down from an off-ramp).

Coolant hose needed replacing.

Transmission shift cable rusted out making it hard to shift from park.

Distributor went dead.

CV joints popped.

Front windshield severely cracked.

And for the big finisher... 2nd valve in the engine blew. I drove it for another week on 3 cylinders only because I needed transportation to work. Now the piece of junk is sitting in my old man's yard. For a Honda I couldn't believe the problems I had with this car. I don't know if it was abused by previous owners or maybe it had like 8 owners before me, but this car cost me thousands of dollars in repairs. I don't think I could bring myself to buy another Honda again, at least not a used one.

General Comments:

Peppy car from 0-60.

Somewhat lacking power on the highway, but still pretty good.

I like how you sit lower in the car giving it a more lower center of gravity. I hate feeling like I'm driving an SUV when I'm in a car.

The local mechanic that had the privelege to do all this work was very trustworthy and smart. He always diagnosed my problems quickly and his labour was cheap. Very good guy, but I bet he was feeling sorry for me by the end.

It is really amazing that people buy a car (ANY car) with 369000 kms and expect it to be as reliable as a new car. I cannot even *imagine* a car with half the mileage of this one not to have its CV boots or radiator hoses replaced. And a valve can blow at even 50000 or 100000 kms- it is just a matter of bad timing and/or bad adjusting valve clearance (=service).
