1995 Honda Accord LX 2.2L from North America


It is a great car!!


The radio caught on fire in the dash... frying all the wires!

I have replaced the radiator, the battery twice, water pump, all the pulleys, exhaust from manifold, fuel filter.

All the speakers blew, it leaks clutch fluid, fan motors, and what really chaps my ass is that at only 180 thousand miles, the stock starter went out... Is it too much to ask for some quality!!

1995 Honda Accord VTi 2.2 petrol VTec from Australia and New Zealand


Extreme reliability coupled with amazing performance


Slight rattle in the dashboard.

Timing belt changed at 75000 (before I had it, so I'm not sure why)

General Comments:

This car is fantastic, a great investment.

I had been looking for a 94-95 Honda for quite sometime, but it was only when I actually finally purchased one that I realised just how good they are. It may be true that parts and servicing for Honda's are a little more than other manufacturers, the fact that you simply don't need to service or fix the Accord very often at all completely outweighs any financial concerns.

As I constantly tell people, my Accord has the "zippyness", handling and looks of a sports car, the interior space of a family car, and the boot size of a four wheel drive! Plus it sounds fantastic. The VTEC engine handles anything I try to do to it with ease. These cars are just amazing.

For anyone considering purchasing a 94-97 Honda Accord, ignore any negative comments you have heard about it and buy one already! You won't regret it in the slightest!

1995 Honda Accord EX 2.2 VTEC from North America


Reliable/persistent engine - but not overall not a trouble-free car


Starter and Clutch Plate had to be replaced at about 140K. I have spent the most money on brakes for this car. Brakes, brakes and more brakes. This has really frustrated me. Just yesterday I had to get new rotors and a master cylinder. I have spent more money on brakes for this car than anything else. I expected more from a Honda. ABS and SRS sensors replaced; Power lock motor/switch replaced; Temperature dial replaced. The interior of the car rattles, which makes it feel really cheap.

General Comments:

For me, this car has been more expensive to maintain that I thought it would be when I bought it 7 years ago; especially the brakes.

The engine in this car will last forever, I think that is the most reliable component of Hondas because I've had lots of repair done in other areas that I would have normally had with any other brand.

Impressively and Surprisingly enough, this car's engine runs strong and I drive it hard and always keep the pedal to the metal. The expressways of Atlanta are like Nascar races. I drive this car at 80 mph (at least) every time I get on the highway. My commute to work is 27 miles one way. I am always thrilled by how stable it drives at highway speeds.

I must admit, I did not think this car would be able to withstand my driving habits and I have certainly tested it's endurance. I find myself searching for reasons to buy a new car because my Accord is nearly 13 years old with high miles; but each time I get into the drivers seat, Becky (my Accord) just shuts me up.

I like the new accord coupe that will be out in October '08. I'm tempted.

If you want car with an engine that is trouble-free and will last forever, buy a Honda. Other areas are not as reliable as I thought, but the engine will never fail you.

I started to wonder why you had to replace the brakes so often when I first read your post. Then you basically stated that you drive like a bat out of hell. I don't feel sorry for you, not one bit. Try driving any vehicle like that and your wallet should suffer!
