I have been the proud owner of 3 1990-1993 Accords and must say they have been the most trouble-free, safe and enjoyable cars I have EVER owned. One of them saved my life in an accident. I have only had to do regular maintenance on them and they drove as good as new up to 200,000+ miles. You must have caught a bad one or one that was not maintained very well. I am a Honda man through and through. Keep up the good work, Honda!

Looking at every review, it appears that out of an estimated 20 reviews, only 2 were negative. Every now and then a lemon will slip through the cracks, but compared to other automobile manufacturers, Honda has produced far less. And it is apparent that they have earned far more satisfied customers, than unsatisfied. Once this is understood, it is very clear why Honda is still the leader in overall reliability and quality.

I am the proud owner of a 1992 Honda Accord LX. I bought it new and I only have 42,000 miles on it. Nothing has ever gone wrong with the vehicle. My daughter has a 1990 Accord which was bought used and it has had a lot of problems. I do believe whoever had owned it before did not maintain it properly. We also had owned a 1989 Accord that lasted until last year. It was also purchased used, but for the most part had very little wrong with it until it reached 400,000 miles and died. There are not many cars that will last that long. I am sorry you had such a bad experience with your Honda. I would never buy anything else. Compared to other manufacturers, Honda is a cut above and that goes for their warranties as well.

I have a 92 Honda accord EX, I brought my car 5 years ago and I only replace a few things. This is a great car because it has a lots of power for being a 4 cylinder.

My girlfriend had a 91 honda accord ex. That ran great at 204,000 until she was in a car accident. So, I bought her another honda. Very nice reliable cars. Minimal maintenance.

I have a 1992 honda accord with 225,000 miles on it and it still runs like it did when I bought it a 44,000 miles. I've only done a little a/c work on it, changed the timing belt every 90,000 miles and change the oil and filter on it every 3,500-5000 miles. It does not burn any oil, but leaks a little from the oil pan when I drive it hard. It does not like to go less than 70mph and sometimes I have to hold her back. For a 4 cylinder, it amazes me what power it has. I am a satisfied customer and will buy another honda after this one dies. I'm shooting for 500,000 miles.

This car is a piece of crap.. If you are thinking about buying one don't, it rides as rough as hell and breaks down consistently.

Okay! What do you suggest I should buy? 1992 Ford Tempo? Olds Cutlass Ciera? Cavalier? Lumina of the day? Taurus? I think the 1992 trumps almost any vehicle in its "midsize class." The Toyota Camry might be a good option, but it is almost identical and Chuck here would rather you buy an old Ford Tempo than have a great looking and reliable car!!

I have a 92 Honda Accord LX. I've had it for around 16 years with minimal repairs. I have had to replace the water pump and timing belt. About the most I have spent is 500 dollars for the water pump.
I have 189,000 miles on it, so it is a good car, but when it starts to go downhill, all hell breaks loose.
