1995 Honda Accord LX 2.2L 4 cylinder from North America
Extremely reliable family car, but go for the manual trans. if you want more power
The only thing that I needed to do after purchasing my beloved Accord was to recharge the air conditioning system. It had a minor leak that I patched up myself with silicone. Total cost - $190 (Canadian).
Other than that, absolutely NOTHING went wrong!!!
Although I've only had the car for a short time, I have all of the service records from the previous owner, so I know that this is an extremely reliable car!
The ride is very comfortable, the engine is quiet (for a 4 cylinder), the fit and finish is excellent, and the interior design is VERY modern, comparable to most American cars of today.
Japanese cars all the way!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wrote this original review, and would like to update you on what is happening.
My car has just passed 250 000km, and guess what? Still nothing wrong!!! It is absolutely bullet proof. I am very amazed at the reliability of this car! Still has an original motor, transmission, clutch, suspension, and paint. It has some rust bubbles by the rear fender - nothing that I can't do myself. Recently I drove it through 2 feet (600mm) of water due to flooding in our city. The car handled beautifully, without having to replace a single thing!
A few gripes that I have - The handling is nothing like my previous Civic, even with wider tires (I miss that), the cup holders are only big enough for cans or small cups (Big Gulp slur-pees will not fit), and the transmission is clunky (nothing like the smooth short throw shifting of the Civic).
Other than that, it is the best car I've ever owned, and I'll probably drive it until it dies!
