I have a 1992 Honda Accord LX and had major problems with the transmission that cost 1600 in repairs. One of the solenoids went out on the car and I thought it was a computer glitch and never bothered to get it check out... bad move turned out to be a huge problem.

I have a '92 Accord LX 4 door (now at 95000 miles) and boy has it been a lemon! I got it about a year and a half ago and I have already spent more on repairs than the car cost (bought it for 3K and have spent $3,500). Amazingly I still find the car sturdy all in all, but here are the issues I can think of: there are a lot of problems with weather stripping, particularly with the passenger window and huge leak in the trunk. I had the exhaust replaced, new brakes, master cylinder, air conditioning, radiator, water pump and more. I regularly get my oil changed and take good care of it, but it keeps breaking! It was running OK for 6 months, but this past Friday I was waiting at a stoplight and the car just stopped running without warning and would not restart. I am moving 1200 miles away soon and hope it makes the trip!

I have a 1992 Honda Accord I have had problems with the car since I bought it for $1500. When I bought it it looked great from the exterior, but as soon as the previous owner handed me the keys he said it needed a lot of tender loving care. I should of run with my money then. I have put a rebuilt transmission, new radiator, changed the transmission computer twice, new brakes, new tires, CV joints for the front (both sides), water pump, all new hoses, thermostat, idle air control valve, changed 3 wheels that ended up being dented will I think that's enough stuff just writing it hurts knowing how much I have spent.. O by the way my transmission just went out again tonight I am getting rid of the car.

Looks like you are paying the price for a car that had lack of maintenance. It also is 15 years old, so it should not be problem free.

I drove my 92 Accord EX problem free for 14 years. It was stolen during year four and again during year 11. I have always kept up with the maintenance. However, in November, 2006 I began to have a problem that seemed to have baffled the Honda mechanics who worked on it for 6 days. When driving, the car began to act sluggish as if it wasn't getting enough gas and was going to stop running. After a few minutes of this, it would jolt up to speed as if it caught up with itself. However, at the moment of the jolt up to speed, the check engine lights would come on and would remain on. After just under $1000 and driving for 1,200 miles, it has started demonstrating with the same problem. This is truly puzzling. Any ideas???

My 1992 honda accord 2 door is a wonderful automobile. It has 300,067 miles and is still going strong. The only major maintenance has been... oh nothing! The rear brake pads are the originals, I have put new radiator and hoses in it, and all exhaust up to cc, also had to put a new motor mount on, it was shaking quite a bit, especially in reverse. Otherwise been a great car. little to no rust.
