One of the best cars Honda ever made!

I have owned nearly every type of car ever made by Honda and I have to say this generation Accord is one of the best. First, it handles great. Put a nice set of tires on the thing and it can take turns like a BMW M3. It's not the fastest car ever made by Honda, but the 2.2L and manual trans provide sufficient power for merging and passing. The quality of the interior is superior. My 92' is nearly 20 years old with 290,000 miles on it and the interior is nearly perfect. The seats look new and the dash has no cracks or fading. The only problems I have had are with rust in the rear wheel wells. Mechanically, this thing is a ROCK. The 2.2L is bullet proof. Not a single engine problem in 290,000. The biggest repair was a broken CV joint ($350). Other than that just scheduled maintenance and wear items.

Great Car

by from Portage, Wisconsin on April 10, 2010

I've owned two of these Accords, the first being a 1991 Accord Ex and the second being a 1992 Accord Ex as well. I liked the interior of the 90-91 Accords better then that of the 92-93 Accords. The ca...
I've owned two of these Accords, the first being a 1991 Accord Ex and the second being a 1992 Accord Ex as well. I liked the interior of the 90-91 Accords better then that of the 92-93 Accords. The car has been great, pretty reliable. Cranks over on those cold -15 Wisconsin winter mornings. Warms up quick and gets you up to speed a moderate amount of time. I've averaged 19 mpg every tank for the last two months but the car has 200000 miles so that may be why, my old 1991 now driven by my father averages 26 mpg. They aren't big cars but seat four comfortably. I just wish the mpgs were a bit higher. I would drive my car to California or Alaska from Wisconsin in a heartbeat. It doesn't skip a beat and I feel safe driving it.

Still going strong

by from Virginia on March 1, 2011

413,000 miles and still going as a daily driver on the original motor and transmission with only being on the 2nd clutch in all that time. I can't see how there can be a better car on the market.

I own a '92 Honda Accord LX (coupe) and it's been a great car. I bought it from the original owner 4 years ago. She only put 27,000 miles on it 17 years (I had to replace the tires because they were the originals!). Now I've got the miles up to 56,000. She took great care of it, and so do I. I do have rust on the rear wheel wells. As far as repair, I've replaced a fuse (very cheap), replaced the tires, put on two mufflers, replaced the pump seals, and she had some minor repairs, too. All in all, the car runs really well, and even though it's a coupe, my friends says that it's really comfortable and spacious. The fabric is in great condition, no cracking on the dash. I took the original carpets to have them cleaned and now the car looks brand new. My car would be perfect, but there's a huge dent in the passenger door- someone slid into my parked car and didn't leave a note. I didn't want my insurance to go up, so I didn't report it. I will be very sad to see this car go, but based on the reviews, I'll have it a while!

Most reliable car I've ever owned

Love this car.I think my 1992 Accord station wagon is still the best looking car on the road. After 120,000 miles the factory exterior paint, as well as the interior upholstery, looks brand new. It doesn't use a drop of oil and it's as peppy as the day I bought brand it new. My only complaint is the retractible antenna which leaves six inches still sticking out when the radio is turned off. If I was really bothered about that, it's easily replaced.

The best car I ever owned having only sold it recently. Interior features began to fail a number of years back but kept moving. Other than changing the timing belt at 90k, the car had never seen the inside of the dealership or mechanic shop. Had rust not begun its work and if I had a place to park it my 15 year old would have been driving when she got her license. The manual transmission is a must.

This car is definately an awesome car. So far, this car has lasted 15 years (113k miles) and is doing just fine for its seniority. There have only been a few minor problems with this car, and just one major one, unlike other cars in this one's class. The klutch busted while cruising through a leveled parking lot (easily fixed), the heater doesnt work anymore, the glove compartment never closes all the way so the light stays on, and the antenna has some problems moving up and down, but opening and slamming the trunk fixes that. As you can see, these problems are very minor, honda is one of the most reliable makers, so less couldnt be expected.

I've owned my 92 since 98 and I love it! It is very reliable and low maintenance...a great car for someone who doesn't want to put much work into their vehicle. No need to lease a Honda...they work great and rarely need fixing. My car is nearly 15 years old and I plan to keep it another 5 years at which time I will sell and it will still be a great deal for the next driver. You can't go wrong with a Honda, I'm definately a fan!

My mother bought her 92 accord in 92, and gave it to me in 2003. I have loved this car. It was not only reliable, but easy to own. I gave it back to her a few months ago, and hope to buy another one soon. I had so few problems, that I have nothing to list. All I can say is with proper maitanence these cars last a life time.
