1992 Honda Accord LX 1.8? 16v 4 cylinder from North America


Reliable model and year, car definitely gives back the care you put into it


In Order...

Replaced Water Pump; the engine is an interference type engine, so in replacing the water pump, the following were also replaced: head gasket, all of the belts (including the timing belt), one serpentine assembly pulley. this cost me about $760 at the shop. Found out later there's another way to replace the water pump without going through the entire engine (from below, removing a few things as well, but easier, shh!)

Replaced Distributor Cap, Wires, & Spark Plugs.

Replaced Main Fuel Relay (apparently a typical problem with this year Honda and Acura, it's under the dash, driver's side, above/behind the ECU and controls the amount of fuel to the FI upon start up. If your Honda/Acura won't start in the heat, then replace this relay.)

Replaced Valve Cover Seal & Spark Plug Port Seals (shop bungled them from the water pump ordeal)

Currently the car has devoured 3 quarts of oil in 2000 miles of driving with no visible leaks and the catalytic converter is smelling like a rotten egg. I'm wondering if the two are related...

Suspension is starting to feel like it could use replacing soon.

General Comments:

I bought this car from the dealership for about $2000, it had been detailed, repaired, and repainted. I am the 3rd owner, currently trying to sell it. It has had it's problems, but considering that I've put over 100,000 miles on it in two years I can't say it's been unreliable. I've owned way worse cars. Cosmetically, this car is great. You'd think it was brand new except for a yellow streak inside the driver's side wheel wells where I ran over fresh paint on the road (grr!!). Interior has held up just fine throughout the years.

I did most of the work on this car myself, except the water pump. I find this car is a pain to work on because of the amount of space (or lack thereof) to work with, and this is coming from a small guy. But I've enjoyed it, kept up on regular oil changes, brake pads, tires, etc.

Overall, I'm satisfied with it. But I'd like to move on from it now...

I love it


The car was stolen and the stereo was destroyed.

The ac makes a squeaking sound when I start the car, but goes away when I got the rpms up (this really does scare me I don't know if I'm causing some kind of damage by running my air, but living in phoenix I don't really have a choice if someone has an idea whats wrong please tell me)

General Comments:

The acceleration is like a racecar. 34 miles per gallon gas. comfortable.

The reason it squeaks is cause the belt is loose.

Reliable great car


EGR valve - very common in these cars.

Cam seal.

General Comments:

This car was designed by some very smart people. The car is just great. Very very very reliable.

The transmission jerk is my only complaint, but these transmissions run an easy 300,000 if well taken care of.

I plan to get at least 400,000 miles out of this car before any engine or transmission is rebuilt.

1992 Honda Accord LX 2.4 inline 4 gas from North America


It's an amazing car with surprising power and luxurious comfort


A/C stopped working.

Windows don't go down easily.

Valve cover gasket leaked at 120,000.

Cruise control stopped working at 125,000.

Axle fell out at 70,000 (repaired under warranty)

General Comments:

This car is very sporty, the 5 speed is very quick with short shifts.

The cabin is very comfortable and flexible. The rear seats fold down, opening up the rear of the wagon, making it excellent for transporting things. The driver's seat is very comfortable, as are the passenger seats.

The car has been very reliable, and it was easy to repair any minor problems that have arisen.

The windows function poorly, one doesn't work at all. Manual windows would have been better.
