The temperature gauge goes to the top!!! by speedster Cat on 06/30/2004. Trim: 1988 Honda Accord LX sedan, Owned 5 years.
Pros: My first car ever, so it was cool.
Cons: Well it was NOT fuel injected, so you have to warm it up in the morning, and plus it dislikes hot weather; the temp gauge went to the top all the time and overheated.
Overall review: If you do local driving in a small town, go for it, but if you do a lot of driving in hot weather, not for you.

it BITES! by A CarPoint Consumer on 06/11/2001. Trim: 1988 Honda Accord DX coupe, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: It moves...SOMETIMES!
Cons: It STALLS! I got it fixed 3 times in 2 months and it STILL gives me trouble! The trunk leaks, so basically, you can't have it out in the rain otherwise your trunk becomes SOAKED! Oh yeah, I have to pump the gas pedal 5 times before the car will start and then I have to crank it and THEN, MAYBE it'll start! ...Not to mention that the 1988 model honda accord is a DEFECTIVE model!
Overall review: do NOT buy it! I do not wish this car upon ANYONE! We've had it since 1988!--HELLO! it's 2001!--try telling my dad that...

Piece of Junk by Carowner12 on 03/18/2013. Trim: 1988 Honda Accord DX sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: absolutly nothing
Cons: everything. The heat a/c doesnt work. It has major antifreeze problems. The breaks randomly fail. The gas guage doesnt work. The mileage doesnt work. The heater/radio freezes. It wont start in cold weather. It gets barely 10 mpg. Not a reliable car at all.
Overall review: This is the worst car anyone could ever own. Mine will be heading to the junk yard very soon. Scrap metal is all this car is good for.

Amazing Accords. by special ed on 06/26/2012. Trim: 1988 Honda Accord DX sedan, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Very dependable. Looks cool, fun to drive. Great on gas. 5 speed.
Cons: 98 hp. Underpowered, but hey you get 35mpg. Wheelwell issue.
Overall review: Bought my 88 dx off a super nice older german couple with 82,000 miles on it in 2006. They babied it, their kids didnt want it because it had no ac. I was shocked, it looked new. They were asking 1200, but out of the blue went down to 800$!! The woman was shocked i was so interested in her "old Jalopie" as she phrased it. Ran excellent still runs 100%. I hardly drive so it has only 103,000 miles now. Solid car, i love it, i had an 87 that rusted out at 210,000 miles, original engine and 5 speed tranny still were good. I love the way its layed out on the inside, it handles nicely, low maintenance. great on gas.
