1992 Honda Accord LX 2.2L from North America
Excellent high miles used car for students
"Main relay" would fail during summer months after 13 years of use. It is a known problem with this model. During summer, the relay expands and fails. Car would not start for a while and when temp cools, starts again. Had to replace main relay ($80 parts+ labor).
Radiator hose cracked and leaked the fluid while driving at 165000 miles. Had to replace the hose. Minor cost.
Oil pan gasket needs to be replaced every year or two.
Nothing major otherwise.
Like the most reviews here, my experience with this model has been excellent. It is very reliable and gives minimal or no problems for a daily driver. It is easy and cheap to maintain. Does not burn oil at all.
My car has everything original, and everything works. Power windows, mirrors, locks functioning. It had passed California smog check with flying colors every time. The last time I was at the smog station with 193000 miles, the tech was apprehensive, but after the check he was impressed.
Even at this old age my Accord 92 drives so well that I do not hesitate to drive long distances on this car. I have done nonstop 250 miles drive on it recently. It is driven almost daily at 70 to 80 mph in SoCal highway traffic.
Overall, a great experience.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
