1992 Honda Accord EX 2.2 from North America


Overall you can't beat these cars for reliability and comfort, compared to price


Transmission went out at 121k and cost me $968 to repair. It is common for automatics in hondas to have problems.

Driver side window doesn't seal properly, causing wind noise. Does not leak however.

My locks freeze during the winter, even though it doesn't get any colder that 25* F here.

My shocks and struts make noises when you hit a dip or something, but they aren't worn out, and still ride great. Original also let me add.

General Comments:

It all depends on if these cars were maintained well whether you get a good one or not. The problem with my transmission was a fluke thing, and just sometimes happens to the perfect car. Mine is champagne and the interior is burgundy, and is immaculate. When I say that, I mean no wear signs, stains, or rips. Looks new.

Quality--solid, but lacking charisma


Driver-side window does not close properly--must be lifted--probably a minor adjustment.

Exhaust needed replacing at 40,000 miles (mechanic said it rusted through because car used for short trips only -- not enough to burn off condensation)

Driver-side trim items have required replacement.

General Comments:

Good car; we take care of it and it takes care of us.

Nice sounding purr to this era engine.

Idle rough, but dealers and mechanics say it is within spec.

Backup idle even rougher, again within spec.

Sporty movement.

We're still on original tires (though I use four snows in winter, reducing wear)

No rust (other than the tailpipe replacement) and nice finish durability.

Valve cover gasket at 170,000.

Plug wires at 195,000.

General Comments:

For all the miles I have put on this car the repairs have mainly been required maintenance, or regular wear. I drive this car Monday through Friday to work on a round trip of 150 miles. I have been doing this for nearly 3 years now. The driver's seat is very comfortable, with a lumbar support in just the right place for me. I have a 2 door and could use a little more leg room though. I am told that the 4 door has a couple inches more leg room. Costs less to maintain than my Nissan maxima, and less than the Toyota Camry.

Superb reliability at a reasonable price


The front CV joints were bad when I purchased the car - $250.

The power antenna was bent, so I had to buy a whole new unit - $50.

Oil is dripping (minor) from the rear main seal, according to the local auto shop - $500 they're not getting.

The automatic transmission shifts kind of hard - $??

The car has unreasonably slow acceleration under 2,000 RPMs. I don't know if it is because of the fuel injectors or the engine timing. It is also the reason I get poor gas mileage. I only get about 250 miles per tank, but the tank is 17.9 gallons! According to other reviews at 30miles per gallon, I should be getting 500 miles per tank! It WILL be getting fixed this Christmas.

General Comments:

For a car that is 10 years old, I think that I am very lucky to have such a reliable car. These problems are minor when you consider the age.

Even though I have only had this car for four months, I am extremely pleased with this automobile and I would buy another one in a heartbeat!

Honda's are probably the most reliable cars on the road today, and they will be receiving my business in the future.

As for your transmission, its shifting hard because it's getting old and tired. I'd be willing to bet it is also starting to "scream" and getting louder. Nothing to worry about just yet. Just about every Automatic Honda at that age starts to shift hard and scream. Its the way Honda designed it. It may sound horrible and give you whiplash, but it will last much much longer.

I love my honda. She's my girl. I have had it for 6 months. It is so reliable. It has even lived through a car accident!

I wouldn't trade it for any other car. It is 12 years old and shes still got the juice to go 110. I love My Honda!
