I bought my 99 accord used with 120,000 miles on it .these were Cleveland Ohio miles. Bad streets and lots of stop and go driving. After a little bit of TLC and some minor repairs I had a great car. It's an LX with a 5 speed . I get 34 MPG and drive it every day. I live in the country so there isn't much stop and go. My insurance is cheap and the upkeep is the usual , oil changes brake shoes etc..I drove it for a year before putting any money into it . I plan on having it for another 10 yrs. This is my 3rd Accord in 20 yrs. I am a fan! My Sunday cruiser is an Acura RSX 5-speed also a great car, very sharp.....

Great car to be 13 years old

I just bought a 1999 Honda Accord EX, just thinking to keep it for a short time until I can get something newer. But it has been a very good buy so far. Granted, the previous owner took very good care of it. But I have had to make very few repairs and the gas mileage is pretty good, I can drive 150 miles from Atlanta, GA to my hometown and use only about a quarter of a tank. I would still like to have a hatchback or something that will hold large loads(I had a Toyota Matrix previously, it was one expensive fix after another), but I am much happier with this car than I expected! It's a keeper.

Great, dependable car

by from Holt, MI on April 16, 2009

At 193,000 miles this car has costed me nothing in repair yet. Just regular oil changes, brakes and tires. I highly recommend this car.

I bought my '99 in 2001 off a lease with 30K. Since then I've put 200,000 miles on it and it has never let me down. I live in New England and the front-wheel drive with the manual transmission gets me through anything. My only complaint is that the car is sluggish while passing on the highway.

Reliability is number one for me, and this car has not let me down. Got to 108000 miles before my 1st repair. Everything before that was maintenance and normal wear/tear. My car is a 4 cylinder, mainly used for commuting to work. Great for gas milage, and very good handling. Engine performance is lacking, but its plenty good for backroads driving. Highly recommended.

The BEST first car anyone could ever have!

This car was my first car and I love the thing!! Let me tell you something, my 99' Accord LX sat for 3 years before I actually got behind the wheel and started practicing on it. When I got her @ 179k we had to replace a good handful of parts, obviously, but when she got fixed, she runs like new! Now mine is the 2.3L 4 Cyl. model with a 5 speed manual transmission. For a 16 year old car, it still throws me back in my seat with the remaining power it has (everything is still stock) but the darn thing still flies on back roads and the highway. The transmission is smooth as butter and visually the car just looks good, especially when you have tinted headlight housings ;) (Emerald Green body color) The interior is simple and comfy and VERY spacious. I drive about 30 miles to work everyday and I can just sit back and relax knowing that I am comfortable and this car will make it to its destination with no issues. The ONLY complaint I have about it...is the body roll, its horrendous, I almost fell out of my seat one time haha but you could fix that with better springs or coilovers. In the end I defiantly recommend this car to ANYONE, especially teens because it's a really nice first car to have in your life :) Even today I am still driving mine @190k miles! and she still purrs like a kitten ;)
