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.

1996 Honda Accord by Andy on 09/03/2003. Trim: 1996 Honda Accord DX Sedan, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Great Gas Mileage, roomy trunk, nice design.
Cons: Recall item caused major damage to engine. The front, driver side wheel skirting fell off around 73,000 miles while driving on the highway.
Overall review: Overall I think this car is great. I think my personal luck with not knowing about the recall item after buying the car used and the wheel skirting falling off (inexpensive to fix but scary when a piece like that falls off when you are traveling 75 mph)
