American Honda Motor Co.'s Accord LX easily could be known as "The Marysville Express."

This four-door automobile from Honda's Marysville, Ohio, production facility has enjoyed widespread acceptance, and even kudos from consumer groups that don't like anything.

The 1991 Accord LX is the product of an ongoing program of refined development that seeks to make a good thing better, and succeeds. The sedan is not an econobox. But in justifying its somewhat upscale sticker price, the four-door offers the accouterments found in better-class automobiles.

High tech lies under the hood in the form of a dual-cam, 16-valve engine, with a twin balance shaft system included to minimize secondary vibration forces. The purchaser can choose either a manual or an automatic transmission. The state-of-the-art suspension provides an excellent ride and control. And the equipment and furnishings fit right into world-class motor cars.

It's the sort of automobile that doubles as a driver's car or as an easy-to-drive everyday utility vehicle. Whatever motoring mode is desired lies at the driver's command.

The Accord LX that Bill Richardson, general sales manager for Dan Young Honda, provided for a test car virtually fit to a T the image projected by the manufacturer.

About the only thing that wasn't standard was the freight, and the complement of accessory and convenience items awaited a driver's bidding.

Equipped with a four-speed automatic, the car is not a rocket ship. You're still dealing with the horsepower and torque provided by a 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine, four valves per cylinder notwithstanding.

But in the automatic's sports mode where the shift pattern is different from the economy mode, the engine pulls strongly and the car comes to life when you give it the throttle.

In automatic form, of course, a driver doesn't have a whole lot more to do than steer. It made the test sedan equally tractable in heavy traffic or on the interstate.

While the LX is a compact, its wheelbase and overall length are of fairly good size for interior comfort.

It really is more of a four-passenger sedan than five, although it can accommodate three in the back seat. And first-time Accord drivers are apt to be struck by the ride qualities of this moderately light automobile.

The four-wheel independent suspension features a Honda-designed long suspension stroke that promotes ease of ride without being unduly soft in fast turns.

Notable was the quick steering that lets you maneuver the car readily at any speed. I found it a lively sedan in moderately heavy traffic.

While there was an ample amount of power equipment, for the price I would have liked a power seat. But on balance, the LX is of excellent quality, and the equal of Honda motor cars built in Japan.
