1996 Honda Accord LX 2.2L 4 cylinder from North America
Overall these are really great cars, I would buy another one
I love my Honda!
Here is a list of stuff that broke on mine and most Accord's will need also.
#1, Rear main oil seal went at 124,000 miles. Rare for any car.
#2, Radiator went 1 weeks after that. Be aware these cars do need radiator replacements, because the plastic tops develop cracks.
#3, Timing belt replaced because the belts were old, you have 4 belts on these cars and they need done every 90,000 miles. If you don't replace them and the timing or balance shaft belt goes, so long motor.
I knew the belts needed done, and knew it was a matter of time for the 10 year old radiator as well when I bought it. But did not expect the rear main seal to go.
This car drives like a BMW - tight and responsive. Great fuel economy and nice interior and controls.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
