The car is virtually painless to own. Just recently the wheels tap like a machine gun when I make a turn in either direction. I do not know what this is so if any of you know please let me know how to fix it. Also the right front caliper sticks so I have to replace the pad often. Other than this the car is perfect. I have almost 150k on the engine and it runs better than most newer cars than I have been in. I owned a grand Am (1994) and at 100k the car nearly fell apart.
I really like the comfort of the ride and I would definitely recommend this car for anyone. The stereo still sounds great, but I need to replace the speakers soon. For anyone thinking of getting a Honda- DO IT! They will last longer than you will! a friend of mine had a 94 civic dx that had over 220k on it and never failed to start. I want to start adding aftermarket parts on the car, but I don't want to sacrifice the quality and the comfort that it has now. The car has a decent amount of power also for an auto. I can take smaller lighter civics and smoked a stock eclipse n/a. The interior still looks really good and has no wear. The steering wheel just started to peel at the top I guess its from where I hold it. But that's 150k later. I always get compliments on how the car looks and they always think it's a 2002.
In conclusion the car is the best car I have ever owned and I don't think I will ever sell it either. If you are in the market for a new ride get a Honda. Stay away from domestics. They are money pits. They are made of cheap material and they will not last you at all. If you don't believe me then sit inside of a pontiac, chevrolet, dodge and then sit a honda, the way they are built and the material feels cheap and looks generic. My accord's interior look much better than many of the cars that were made in 1998. And still looks better than many of the newer cars. I just need to get some reverse indiglos, anyone know of good place to get these? I need some good ones not those boring GLO GAUGES.
Thanks for reading.
