Buy it for reliability, speed, and beauty
I have had no problems at all with my car. Although my headlight blew, that is all that has broken after 90,000 miles and I drive it like a race car.
I bought my 1997 Accord in 1999. I knew it was a great car when I saw its rich black paint, grey leather interior, and its body rockin' 5-speed.
Although I have seen some bad reviews about this model Accord, leave it to Honda to make a 4-cylinder that can outrun a Mustang GT and a Camaro RS. I have had my car up to 135mph and still had about 3 inches of pedal to go. This is no timid car, just put the pedal down and go.
To get reliability out of your car you have to change the oil every 3,000 miles without exception. I had a 1987 Accord LX-I and it had 302,000 miles on it until it met a 1985 Monte Carlo SS and it was totaled.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
