1994 Honda Accord ex 2.2 vtech from North America
Brake replacement (2 times) - very, very expensive.
Muffler replacement (3 times) - expensive.
CV boot replacement (2 times).
Front axel replacement.
Front sway bar replacement.
Timing belt ($700 - outrageous).
Power windows stuck.
Car won't start.
Front end shakes when braking.
Transmission shifts at wrong rpms.
Glare on windshield.
Uncomfortable on long drive.
Thin sheet metal.
Crappy sounding radio.
Power antenna broken.
This car is a piece of junk. Very disappointed in the poor quality of parts. Repairs are overly expensive and can cost 3 times as much as domestic parts. Very boring. Hate this car more than any other vehicle I have ever owned. Will not buy another Honda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Funny how I am approaching 250,000 with my 94 Accord LX and have no trouble like you say. I have power everything; except sunroof, power seat lifter, and no automatic. Sorry pal the Tempo was a disgrace to the FoMOCo and they are still feeling the pains that car brought them today.

Perhaps, you just ended up with a bad Accord. It is always good to do a VIN check and get a good look at the car before purchasing it. Honda and Toyota are the top 2 of JD Power. Its hard to believe that a Honda fails you. Maybe you ended with a bad Honda, maybe someone felt like wrecking the life out of the car and just unfortunately you got stuck with it. Sorry, tough break. I've had a 1992 Honda Accord and it never bothered me at all. Honda and Toyota are the way to go.

I agree to what most of you are saying, however... Every car has it's flaws, even at 13 years old. I have owned my Honda Accord since 1997, and the car itself is a '93. The only major issues I've had with it is the drive axles had to be replaced, and the oil cooler, other than oil changes every 3K miles, new brakes, tune-ups, and updating the fluids. This car is at 154,000 miles and is still running strong. I have owned three Honda's in my life, and I plan to sell this one and get a Brand New '07 Accord.
