My Favorite Car by Honda Lover from Wisconsin on 11/30/2010. Trim: 1996 Honda Accord EX V6 Sedan, Owned 5 years.
Pros: The V6 has great power behind it. Excellent handling and braking. No major problems with the car besides routine maintenance. I got it 5 years ago at 80,000 miles and it now has almost 170,000 and still running strong.
Cons: I have leather seats which are ripping apart at the corners and the A/C compressor seized up. Another problem was the front valve cover gasket starting leaking but that was an easy fix. The gas mileage is not the best but i guess that is the price to pay for having a V6, it gets about 23 mpg on average.
Overall review: I plan on purchasing only hondas for my future cars. I would recommend honda to anyone who wants a super reliable car that is also fun to drive.

I love my Honda Accord!! by MN mom of 2, Twin Cities, MN on 08/21/2006. Trim: 1996 Honda Accord EX Sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I LOVE THIS CAR!! I bought it in 2003 when I was expecting my first child. I went to the dealer wanting a Honda, not sure what exactly or even what year. I got it with 128,000 miles on it, my dad's mechanic told me that it would last at least another 100,000... he wasn't saying that to help the dealer I went to cuz he doesn't get along with them... anyway, he said to buy it cuz it wouldn't last on the lot long... I love the leather, the moonroof, the acceleration, the big truck (fits an old, huge double stroller). I love the locking, holding the key turned in the driver side unlocks all doors & unlocking the passenger side door unlocks all doors. 3 years later, it now has 178,000 miles!!
Cons: The transmission does shift a little hard but I don't see having to replace it anytime soon. Leaves and junk got up in the bottom of the car and needed to be cleaned out, which caused the a/c to drip inside instead of outside but all my husband did was clean it out. We haven't done anything too major it. Just the normal, like replacing of brakes and rotors. I love it and am so happy with it. I would like someday to own another one with a standard transmission so I am in control of the shifting... automatics just can't read your mind...
Overall review: It is still going strong!! I just love it and would recommend it to anyone!! I know I made a good choice. It has great gas mileage... I have had 30+ mpg. I use it to go home all the time, about a four hour trip. With two kids though, longer trips than that would be hard cuz it is a little cramped but it has served us so well and even though it holds its value, I don't see ever selling it. I plan on driving it into the ground.

one of the greatest cars ever by 101 B. Grand Rapids, Michigan on 12/05/2013. Trim: 1996 Honda Accord LX Sedan, Owned 4 years.
Pros: My Accord has 278,000 miles on it and it runs like to champ. starts up every morning in these cold Michigan winters and in the summer time she does the same. She has never left me stranded she is the number one thing I can count on... See you at 500,000!
Cons: I can't think of anything right off that I don't like about the car.
Overall review: 270 8000 miles in still kicking. I would recommend this car to anyone. at one time I had two Honda Accords, a 95 and a 96 both with over 200,000 miles on them. This is by far one of the greatest cars I have ever driven and will continue to drive

Accords Rule! by pammiedawg from NC on 08/13/2007. Trim: 1996 Honda Accord EX Sedan, Owned 5 years.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind!
Overall review: This is a great car. It has to be one of the best investments I have ever made. My Accord has over 240k miles and has had virtually no problems. I have had it for over five years, and I hope to be driving it for at least five more.

The PERFECT CAR!!! by Anthony on 05/22/2007. Trim: 1996 Honda Accord EX Coupe, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I love my car. Love it. I'm the third owner. 17 years old. Older sister bought it used.In late '96. 20,000 miles on it. Gave it to me. 167,000 miles. And still driving BEAUTIFULLY!! I've put maybe 10,000 miles on it since i got it in '06 around september. I put a cold air intake on this, it picks up and goes quicker than stock. Sounds good as well.
Cons: Nothing!! This is a great car. Perfect.
Overall review: My accord is perfect for me. I love it. I've said this a million times but i do! Many people ask me questions about it all the time. Even had a couple guys offer to buy it!! I keep this car very clean and i still get looks, 11 years after it was made. Amazing automobile.
