Summary:

After 120,000 miles, still a great car!

Faults:

Overall, an awesome car. It has never let me down once. There have been a few fit and finish problems, (interior door handle casing, heater control knob!!!), but nothing a few bucks at the dealership couldn't fix.

I must say that I have been very disapointed with my manual transmission(s). My first had a bad 1-2 synchronizer at 95,000 miles. This is my second, (bought used with 91,000 miles on it) and now the 2-3 synchronizer is bad. I can drive a stick shift very well, but Honda as well as I blame it on poor maintenance! Not changing the transmission oil when recommended is a sure fire way to destroy any transmission. Since I bought the car used, who knows when - and if it was ever changed - as well as with my current transmission.

IMPOSSIBLE TO BALANCE THE ALLOY WHEELS, has been a consistent annoyance. They are not bent or deformed in any way!!!

General Comments:

Overall, I love it. It has been a good investment (for a car). It is still fun to drive, and handles and looks like it's new. I have managed to prevent that rust by the rear wheels from coming out!!! YES!!!

I love the Accord automatic transmissions a lot, and will most likely buy the automatic next time.

General Comments:

My previous car was a '92 Accord; I never had any trouble with it until it was totaled in an accident. I loved that car and this one too. It's also a pleasure to work on, very well designed.

1993 Honda Accord EX V6 from North America

Year of manufacture1993
Engine and transmission V6

Comfort marks 10 / 10
Dealer Service marks 9 / 10
Running Costs (higher is cheaper) 8 / 10
Overall marks (average of all marks)
9.4 / 10

Faults:

The car was fine before my brother had totalled it. To my amazement, the engine had survived 4 accidents all in which resulted in front collision. I would think that the engine would have problems after much damage. But the engine kept on running smoothly after repairs.

General Comments:

Keep the car away from bad and clumsy drivers (like my brother for example) and it'll last forever.
