I have throughly enjoyed my 1996 Honda accord. It is a very sturdy, quiet, major problem free car. It is a great size for passengers, skiis, canoe, and golf clubs. The electrical system worked all those years and still does. It is an overall great car to own.

14 years old & FANTASTIC

This isn't the most stylish or sporty car, but is the MOST reliable car I've ever owned. Acceleration is a bit sluggish compared to the lighter smaller Civic, but the car rides smooth at 25 & 90 mph. Side mirrors fold in for folks that park in narrow areas - rather than breaking off when hit... Seats 4 adults comfortably. The back seat folds down for longer articles that may not fit in the trunk. Trunk will hold approx 4 suitcases. There are only a couple key features I'd like to have that are missing... - the steering wheel doesn't adjust it's tilt, just it's height - my arms aren't long enough to reach so it's not the most comfortable - the lumbar support is virtually non-existent

I got this car from my dad about 3 years ago with about 140K Miles on it. I now have 205K miles and it still runs like a champ. The only things that have been replaced is the clutch fly wheel and a radiator. All I do is regular oil changes and just did the first transmission flush. Still runs great. Great car, going to run this thing till it blows up.

A solid dependable car with a very long life

by from Detroit, MI on June 1, 2008

This is a very comfortable, dependable, and reliable vehicle. I never had any issue with it. I was told by a mechanic that the engine on this vehicle can last for over 250 thousand miles.

Works even "without gas"

"Works even without gas" was a joke I heard when I was looking for a car and I brought my prospective Honda 96 to a mechanic to check if it was in good condition. Nowadays I feel like this was not quite a joke, since this car performs so well that sometimes even very little gas keeps it on until I find a gas station. My friends who also have Hondas usually say the same: "Next one will also be a Honda". I was never let down by my Honda Accord 96 and I am satisfied for having that as my first car ever!

I am a senior, and I have owned about 4 dozen cars in my life. My '96 4dr EX has been just great. It is the perfect all-around car with an excellent balance of sport/luxury/economy, etc. It has never let me down in 15 years and 185K miles. I have yet to have a rattle in this car. I am tempted to buy a newer car, but I think I would miss this one too much. I think Honda is making the newer ones too big, and they have less personality. I'm keeping this one for a long time.
