This vehicle has been though the devil and back. 2 Major accidents, one front, and one rear end and a couple of side impacts on the right front wheel that required some work, and it STILL runs great!!!
I have driven this car from coast to coast to coast to coast with several MAJOR trips in between and it has NEVER failed to perform. I even had the car lifted onto the back of a Navy ship and transported, from San Diego, through the Panama Canal, and off loaded in Norfolk and it took the ride just fine.
My previous 1987 Honda Accord LXI had 99,000 miles when I traded it in on this car and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Except for the fact that I have gotten older now and it is hard to take all the road miles like I used to, this car is STILL going strong, and I expect it to last for another 10 years. So long as you change the fluids on time and give it the routine maintenance that it deserves, there is not another car at the price you could purchase that will give you THIS kind of service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
