1995 Honda Accord EX 2.2L VTEC SOHC from North America
Good Car for Students or a First Car and to go from A to B to A
Had to change drive axles when first got the car.
Speedometer does not work when first got the car, so I cannot tell how fast I drive or How much I have driven.
Recently, the central lock system gone crazy mode. when I lock the driver door with either the key or from inside, it will by itself lock and unlock both doors in my coupe car several times for like 10-20 seconds then stop. have no idea what is wrong with it, so I disabled the system by pulling the fuse out.
I have the automatic transmission unfortunately, nothing gone wrong with it, but it shifts very hard when car is cold and sometimes, I feel a delay before it shifts when car is cold a fraction of a second.
Recently, I had a problem with overheating, changed the thermostat, still overheats, nothing leaks no coolant missing. then I solved the problem by changing the radiator. it turned out that the radiator fins were clogged so cooling efficiency was down considerably to make the car overheat.
ABS system will make weird buzzing sound when I first start the car, one time, it kept making that sounf for a long time, saw the braking fluid in the ABS ssytem low, so I added some fluid and buzzing sound went down to only couple seconds. have no idea what the buzzing sound is for. ABS still works though.
Car is not fast in high way, especially in third gear. I had my ass handed to me many times on the high way, so I learned my lesson not to race any one cause its not fast.
AC cooling system does not hold a charge, it leaks, no intention to fix it.
The car is relatively comfortable on the roads.
The stopping ability and cornering ability on this car is not bad at all. will stop quickly and performs decently in corners.
The car is good when it comes to gas consumption.
The car's looks are better than their competitors.
It is not fast, Wish they had the DOHC engines in them. would have preferred if they put the integra engine in them rather than design new engines for the accord back then.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
