I love my Honda(s).. all I will ever buy. This 1998 Accord LX has been excellent for 10-years and shows no sign of letting up. If maintained properly Honda's will run for 300-400 thousand miles. I have pushed one to 200K and have friends that have as well.

You'll never go wrong with a Honda.

by from Nashville, TN on May 1, 2010

I have driven a lot of cars, and this one really stand out when it comes to comfort and handling. Mine is the V6 and it's very strong and smooth. I'll most likely buy another one down the road.

Bought this car with around 150k miles on it. Its run great ever since! Its very obvious the last owner did not keep up with it which is the only reason for most of its problems. It now has 185k miles and had started having overheating problems. I replaced the radiator and a couple hoses had busted due to wear and tear. This car works great and you can definitely feel the engine is better compared to other 4 cylinders. This car will most likely last us up to 250k at the rate its going!

Leather for 10K

I drive a black 1998 Honda Accord EX with a manual transmission and leather interior. Being 20 I can't really afford the car of my dreams, so I've done my best to make my Honda the car of my dreams (within reason). In my efforts to make this car my own I have added 17 inch racing rims with Z rated performance tires, racing suspension, a 2000 Watt JBL stereo system with a Sony MP3 CD deck, blacked out tint, and to top it off a two tone air horn. It gets me where I need to go on minimal gas and sets off all of the car alarms in the nearby area. Driving my car makes me feel free and is very therapeutic, that is when traffic permits.

Best Of Any Price Class!

Over the 10 years (purchased 'used' in 1998 w/2,900 miles) I've owned this vehicle, it's rewarded me with unmatched reliability, durability, engineering features, comfort, and pure pleasure. The 3-Liter VTec V6 is the only choice - great performance, excellent fuel economy and this engine is as smooth as a calm lake. The vehicle came completley loaded with options - and they all perform as new today with no repairs. The best point is that Accords reward you with excellent resale value once you've decided to 'move on' to another (and it'll be a n Accord!). In 170,000 miles, I've spent less than $2,500 in maintenance/upkeep/repair (including tires, barkes, oil changes, etc.) and consider this a raging bargain! How many, regardless of nameplate or pice grouping, can match that?

This car has been in my family since 2001, my dad bought it used and then handed it down to me. Car has over 260000 miles on it as it drove from Rhode Island to Boston everyday for over 12 years. Car is fantastic, only issue is the timing belt went late last year and since then there have been a slew of issues but you can attribute that to the car having over 260 k on her. Shes still peppy and gets going quick sometimes it shifts a little later than it should but still runs fairly well. With ease it could be doing a lot better had she been maintenance better (or at all) but 260k+ with little money into it and no maintenance by far an excellent machine.

Driving the vehicle will show you that it's worth the money. Smooth ride, especially on the highway and especially if you have VTEC. Has been reliable 9 years later and starts everytime, even in the winter. The body style is definitely an eye catcher and will not be fading away in the next 5 years. The truck space is extremely sufficient, especially for being a coupe. Great mileage for the gallon. Clean and quiet engine deserves recognition as well.

I am a car enthusiast and have driven literally hundreds of cars. I still have not found a car that matches the Honda Accord for the money. It drives better than any other front-wheel drive car I've driven and better than some rear-wheel driven cars. Not only is the 4-cylinder VTEC engine great with gas, it is also peppy. I have beaten numerous V6s with my 4-banger. I would recommend the Honda Accord to anyone who asks. It is comfortable, stylish, and ages gracefully. No wonder it is one of the best selling cars on the road, without selling to the government or Avis. Congrats Honda, you turn out winner after winner. I'll be seeing a Honda dealership in a year or two for my second car, bound to be another Honda Accord.

This is my second Honda Accord. My first was a 94 LX Sedan. That car was amazing and had 259,600 miles on it the day I got into an accident. My mom and dad had bought that car for me a month before I received my license and I ended up driving that car 5,000 miles last summer! This is a great car, still a 4-cylinder like my previous one. And don't get me wrong I love it, but, the transmission is starting to slip and being 17 I don't exactly have 4 grand for a new tranny! I love the leather and the sunroof which are serious upgrades to the old one. And this car only has 162,678 miles on it as of today! I bought it with 157,500 on it and the tranny was slipping even then back in November. If Honda had put in a better tranny I would maybe give the car more credit than I have. Oh and not to mention the fact that i have been getting 19.8 miles to the gallon COMBINED city and highway!!!!!!! The car is supossed to get 23 in the city and I drive very conservatively most of the time! And the car seems to lag at times when pick up is really needed, then VTEC (variable valve timing) and the car gets a sudden boost!
