1994 Honda Accord LX F22B2 from North America


Extraordinary in all aspects


Valve cover gasket blew at 176,896km.

Shorts in the electrical wiring.

CV Axel broke at 168,953km.

General Comments:

This car has been the greatest buy. It handles so incredibly and with a 5-speed transmission it is one hell of a ride, even at 90mph.

The cockpit of the 2-door 1994 Honda Accord Lx is sensationally spacious and has a lot of luxury, even without the leather seats.

1994 Honda Accord EX SOHC VTECH from North America


A car with Luxury and Power


Radiator went out at 110,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car is very fast with the VTECH engine! I use my car as a racing car and there are lots of engine and body modifications that you can do with this car, which I intend to do. This Cars audio system is very powerful stocked! They sound like 10" subwoofers, Seriously!! I also live in Florida so the power sunroof window comes in handy a lot.

Cracked CV boots at approximately 90,000 miles.

Drivers side window motor went out at approximately 100,000 miles.

General Comments:

In spite of the relatively minor problems listed above (not many problems for 115,000 miles!) this is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned and I would not consider buying anything but a Honda Accord from now on. It can be 100° outside or freezing, but I get in my Honda and it starts first try, every time. At 115,000 it still has plenty of power, and on a recent 1800-mile trip was documented getting between 30.5 to 32.0 miles to the gallon -- 10 years old and having NEVER been tuned up!

Having that many miles on a car and not tuning it up is not something to brag about. Put a tune up on your car. How do you expect it to last if you don't take care of it? It seems to be taking care of you.

Citrus-scented and expensive to own


My first problem was when the left front wheel came off the car while traveling down the highway at 65 MPH. This happened just a couple months after I bought the car, with about 60,000 miles on it. The wheel hub had failed. I had to replace the entire axle assembly, plus the rotor and the front brakes, along with the left front quarter panel and wheel-well liner. That cost me about $2500.

After that, the exhaust system began self-destructing. I eventually replaced every component aft of the manifold, many of them more than once. For some reason, I could only get about 3-4 months out of a muffler, and there was a noise at the junction of two exhaust pipes which just would not go away, even after they were replaced.

The ABS actuator failed around 105,000 miles. Since that was about a $2000 fix, I decided to just live with it.

The power antenna sounded like a garbage disposal packed with shrapnel.

At around 120,000 miles, the vehicle began to rust out around the rear wheel arches. I've noticed this same problem on most of the '94-'95 Accords I've seen since.

When I parked the thing at 158K, the transmission was balking on the 2nd-to-3rd shift. And yes, I *did* change the fluid and filter, more than once.

General Comments:

This car was fun to drive, but my word, it was expensive to operate. I know most Hondas are trouble-free and that's why people pay a premium price for them, but my '94 Accord was definitely NOT worth what I paid for it.

Rust eh? did you wash your car??

The hub failed? you mean the nuts were not tight and the wheel slipped off, whos responsibility is it to make sure ur lugs are tight?

Early Japanese cars were not meant to last for over ten years.. Within 6-9 years, you will start to find rust if you never maintain the integrity of the vehicle.. This means that you should take it once a year, to a body shop and have them clean, repair rust and rust proof the car..

Actually you should do it to any vehicle over 7-9 years old..

The newer Japanese cars are Japanese engineered, but built in Canada/USA, as well as being built with stronger metal and better paint.. Expect one to last well over 15 years..

Also the reviewer meant the hub fell off.. It must have been defective because I have never heard of wheel nuts being loose. You would notice if the wheel nuts were loose because the car would shake badly and you would need to stop and tighten the nuts on it or, if severe, replace the rim, rotor, caliper and pads, and possibly the tire..
