Red Honda
I've had the Honda for 7 years and it has performed beautifully. Only oil changes, one brake linning job, new windshield wipers, tires - only one major repair: carborator

keeps going and going....
I've had this car for about 4 years now and have had to make no repairs outside of standard maintanence. This honda is by far the most reliable car I've owned. While the ride is reasonably peppy, the styling is pretty sedate and I can't say I find the car particularly exciting. I have no doubt that it will last as long as I want it to though -- great buy and I've never once been sorry for the purchase. --left passenger automatic window sticks a bit but still works. --Some groans and squeaks at cruising speed.

9 years old and still running great
Great car! The exterior is still in great shape, the design itself is holding up pretty well although the front seems to be aging better than the back of the car. Interior is well- thought out with plenty of places to place your things and easy to use controls. Even though the engine is a 4 cylinder, it has good pickup and handling is simple and nice.

Reliable, Reliable
I bought the car new, and loved it from that day. My family had it for 7 years, 120,000 miles, and never expierenced a problem with that automobile. We finally replaced the EX Accord with an Odyssey EX. One would be suprised at how peppy the 140hp I-4 is. I reccomend this car!

Reliable Car
I've had my "top of the line" Honda (Accord SE) for about half year. I purchased it with 125K and it's been allright. I had to replace front suspention springs and struts, but other than that, it's very reliable car. I also enjoy the gas mileage on the highways. It's significantly worse in town though! I'd recomend the Accord to all of you who want relatively cheap but reliable car that will last :-)

By Scubagirl on December 23 @ 11:00 am
Just keeps ticking
I bought my 93 Honda because I wanted a reliable used car. It hasn't let me down. It now has 109,000 My prior Accord (89) I had sold to a friend, who drove it 210,000 miles before sending it to "car heaven." Even after a fender bender three years ago, I haven't had any problems. I would recommend it as a trustworthy vehicle with great gas mileage.

Great Buy
I always like to tell my college friends about my '93 Honda Accord EX purchase. After graduation in '93, many of my friends decided to save a few dollars and buy American. Years later, one by one of the Ford and GM products went to the junk yard or were sold for a few hundred dollars while my investment continued to drive hassle free. Last year, my wife talked me into a Volvo S60 and I sold the Accord EX for an unreal price. As cars go, this was an increadable investment. Not very many car makers can say that they have cars on the road for over 8 years /100,000 miles without a single repair not to mention the resale.

Great car
Great car inside and out. It has everything you need nothing you don't. I have had the car for almost a month and I have never had any problems. Great 9!!! year old car!

By flagirl1964 on October 10 @ 11:00 am
Trusted Old Friend
I bought the car new, and was looking for a reliable vehicle. I haven't been disappointed. In the 9 years it has been driven, I can count on one hand the number of times it has refused to go (battery twice and starter once). The interior has held up well, but the paint shows signs of age--hurried along by exposure to weather and a detailer who power buffed the finish. Now the clearcoat is peeling. I've kept up with the preventive maintenance, so at 157,000 miles it is still mechanically sound.

By Daybud on February 8 @ 11:00 am
Love this car
I just sold my 99 Passat and needed cheap transportation until I find the convertible of my dreams. I bought this one owner car with the original tires (replace yesterday due to rubber rot). What a sweet car, I have people beggin me to sell her to them. It didn't look so great under the car port with two flat tires, dead battery and an inch of dirt but today she looks like a brand new 9 year old car.

By DEO on March 22 @ 11:00 am
First car!
And I love her! She's really sensitive. You only need to to tap on her and she just goes! With the Ford Taurus we got, you have to really push down to go anywhere. I love the size because it's really easy to handle and I get a great feel of the car. I'm really happy with this Honda.

Good car
Great little car. Fun to drive with Honda reliability. Styling isn't great but could be a little more exciting. I love the headlights its like having giant Hella lights on the front

By kwhkop on January 18 @ 11:00 am
Ode to a great car
I bought this car new in 93 the cruz- contol shorted out and caught the car on fire 9-15-02, it had 280,000 + miles and never gave me 1 problem until its sucide,well the fireman helped as they had to chop the hood off to fight the fire,their dmg is what totaled it..reg oil chg & svc will keep a honda going, I saw a prelude with 850,000 miles on it. I am very sad for my loss.

By andyb889 on December 31 @ 11:00 am
1993 Accord SE is excellent
I love the car. I bought it at 190k miles and it has been running excellent. I guess it will last for another 10 years.

By GOKB on September 27 @ 11:00 am
113,000 and Still Kick'n Butt!!!!!!!
Great car, actually the best I have ever owned. Will never buy a domestic vehicle again. Only general mantinance required. New clutch at 98,000. Good pep with the 5 speed. Still drives very close to when it was new. Mine was made in Japan. Awaiting the new 2003 Coupe, thinking about trading if the price is right. I will not be gouged just because it is a new design. I will be glad to keep this one for an other year or more. Hope the Hondas made here in the USA are as good as my current model.

By hondaluvr on January 26 @ 11:00 am
Doesn't get any better
My experience with my '93 honda has been nothing less than perfect. I am the original owner and it has proven to be the most reliable, dependable vehicle I have ever owned. My Accord now has $185,000 miles on it and the motor is still going strong. I love it so much it is going to be hard to part with it. I just purchased the 2003 Accord. Go figure, from a 1993 to 2003, if that doesn't say anything I don't know what does.

By rinkwide on July 1 @ 11:00 am
A Pleasure To Own
I'm not looking forward to selling this car. I have so many great memories in it and it's been so reliable that to me it's priceless.

By cheeze_head on June 13 @ 11:00 am
Best OLD car I've ever owned!
I bought this 6 year-old from a dealership back in 1999 w/ 43K miles on it. Now, it's at 85K. Got a great deal with my 91 Accord EX trade-in. Ever since, I just love the car. Got all the features that most cars today don't have as standard...e.g. leather, Bose, dual airbags, ABS, moonroof, CD- changer, etc...Had no mechanical problems except the "MAIN RELAY --> NO START" problem. But I fixed that. Gives great gas mileage on the freeway, performs well, especially with strut- bar. I still think this is Honda's best built car.

By Chad C on June 13 @ 11:00 am
Great Factory Stereo , Great 1st Car!!!
I bought the car in Plano, TX of April 2001. I bought it off this guy who said a customer of his had abandoned it. 1993 Accord EX Sedan, Black w/ Beige Leather, Sunroof, Factory Alarm, Factory Alloys, Factory AM/FM/CD/Cass Stereo. When I bought the car, the radio had to be programmed because the battery had been disconnected. So for about 8 months, i used nothing but the CD player, and it has just recently began to skip and deteriorate. Oh well, it has a very, very nice sound system for factory speckers. The leather on the door panels is slowly coming loose, showing the original beige cloth in the door insert.

By Honda lover on May 26 @ 11:00 am
Great car!
Bought a 93 Accord SE sedan in April, 2002 with 90K miles on it. It now has 101K and rides and looks great! And the resale value is unreal. Think hard before you buy another American car! This one should last a long time.

By Terr0rt0telc0 on May 26 @ 11:00 am
Still running
Overall good experience with this car I bought it at 50000 miles and i have it now up to 130000. I went through 3 starters hhhmmm oh well still have another problem now but it is ok. This would have cost me more if I had not done all the work myself alot more. Good handeling except for the strut towers going bad mainly the right starts making bed spring noises. another possible thing brakes can go out the bolt that is on the box that has the brake fluid not the one under the hood bolt can come out a bit and the fluid bleeds everywhere then fun bleed the brakes time.

By Turk on February 20 @ 11:00 am
93 Accord SE
Without a doubt, my '93 Accord SE has been the most reliable car I have ever owned.

By HonDaLuVeR on February 20 @ 11:00 am
Great Car!
I love this car! Looks good, runs smooth, good mileage... Ive had the car for about 6 months now and Ive had people making me offers for more than what I paid for her. I see a LOT of 3rd and 4th gen accords on the road where I live so I know she'll probably last a while. The factory stereo and speakers dont sound too hot but once you put a nice system in there she's perfect.

By mikey4470 on September 6 @ 3:00 am
I love the hondas!
Because of my history with my last accord and because of the reputation of Hondas in general I decided to stick with Honda for my next car. I think i got a good deal on it, i paid 5,400 from a dealer and the car has 119,000 miles on it. The dealer also put a new paintjob on it, replaced the timing belt/water pump, and about $600 in other improvements. The interior is perfect. My car also came with a kick- butt stereo system which included 2 10" subs and a graphic equilizer! I am very happy with my purchase and will stay loyal to hondas no doubt! An absolute pleasure to drive!

By dub on March 2 @ 3:00 am
Great car
This was the first thing I bought when I finished college. I still have the car today, and it still runs great. You just follow the recommended Honda maintenance scheule, and you get no problems. I've had to replace the battery, a couple of lights, and the muffler. Great car.

By C Csada on May 2 @ 3:00 am
A Little Disappointed
Bought this car (my first Honda) used with about 84,000 miles. 2 months later I had to do the head gasket because, followed my the flex pipe on the exhaust. 8 months later and 100,000 miles oil sending unit, oil pan gasket and now my water pump is starting to leak. I also have a front tire shimmy when braking, a transmission mount that needs to be replaced and my clutch shudders in the morning. I bought because of Honda reliablity but know I can honestly say that I'm not so impressed. I've owned Chev, Ford and Chrysler products so far my accord is no better than them. Good thing for high resale value.

By afan on July 19 @ 3:00 am
Cheap & Reliable
Nothing to recommend it except that it is incredibly reliable and costs next to nothing to run. Comfort, handling, features all pretty mundane. Like any good appliance, it does all you want to to do, but is not in any way memorable. Maybe that's what a car should be. I've had this since new (wife's car) and it now has 188,000 miles. Never failed to start. Never quit. Not a dime spent on anything but routine maintenance(and not much of that...tires last 90,000 miles, still have original struts,etc) except for one flat tire and a brakelight bulb.

Honda's New Car - The Honda Lemon
Bought the car in 2001 with 46,000 miles. In 1 1/2 years, I increased the mileage to 90,400. I went thru the following in a span of 3-4 mths: Radiator replaced, timing belt & water pump replaced(I can understand about timing belt & water pump); new valve-covered gasket. The transmission dropped. Yes, a Honda transmission failed. Can you believe it?! I rebuilt the transmission & replaced oil-covered gasket. I think the car just sat & sat during its first 8 yrs. without anyone changing the fluids or driving it much. 3-4 mths. & $3000 later, I think I have rebuilt a new car, but I have renamed this 1993 Honda Accord a 2002 Honda Lemon.

By jon&virgil on September 7 @ 3:00 am
Jakes 1993 Accord EX
I purchased this car new and I am now selling it because my family has out grown the sporty accord. I would tell anyone who is looking for a good dependable sharp car to look for this year model. I have NEVER had a days trouble......I hate I must sell it......

By RandyZ on January 24 @ 3:00 am
Can't complain
Bought this Ex, 4 door with 67,000 miles on it in 97. gas milage 25-26 mpg around Houston, I've got 227,000 miles on it now, nice road feel, better cloth interior than the 2003 accord. 300,000 miles? no prob. change the timing belt ever 90,000, oil every 4,000, use mobil one synthetic.

By Lumberjack98 on March 25 @ 3:00 am
225,000 miles & tearing up the highway
I run my cars hard with no mercy and this car is awesome like all the Honda's I've owned! 225,000 miles and still tickin'. It'll still cruise at 80 mph for hours without worry.

By nanook on October 28 @ 3:00 am
11 great years
Bought it new and got 202,000 miles before the tranny blew. Low maintenance costs throughout. Change the oil and it just keeps on going. I drive hard commuter miles and got my money's worth and then some.

By ryguy on July 31 @ 11:00 am
Great Car
I just bought this car four months ago and it is simply the best!! I upgraded from a little Honda Civic to a more powerful Accord. I am very happy with the power that is has! I am also VERY happy with the very low maintenence on the engine! I have NO rust and is still going strong. I am very glad I have a Honda as my parents are having with their 96 Windstar that just hit 100k!! (the problems are here!!!) I have and I will always say: Ford should learn from the Japanese to get the product right, THE FIRST TIME!!

By Blix on September 27 @ 11:00 am
Still Going Strong
I bought this car used in 1995 to replace my '83 Accord. Take care of these cars and they will last. I have 127k miles on it and it runs as great as the day I bought it. I get 32 MPG on average in the city, about 34 highway.

By kmd on June 23 @ 11:00 am
Serving Me Well
The easiest purchase I ever made was my Honda EX Accord. It's reputation for being long-lasting sold me before I stepped into the showroom ten years ago. My Honda is approaching 80,000 miles without having any major problems. Several people have asked if I'm ready to sell but I just can't part with a valued friend!

By James Johnson on November 26 @ 11:00 am
very good quality, excellent gas mileage added no oil, then changed oil at 7000 miles.

By Jeremey on August 23 @ 11:00 am
Great car!
I bought this car just last year and it had 93,000 miles on it. It now has 118,000 miles on it and i have done nothing but the usual maintenance. I am now trying to see it, but only because i am getting a Prelude. These cars are built very well and will last for a long time. I really like the alloy wheels, spoiler, and overall look of the accord. The sound system is actually decent for a 93 car. GREAT CAR!

By Smokey on February 13 @ 11:00 am
140,000 and still going strong!!
This is my second accord. I traded in my 1989 too prematurely (it had no problems what-so ever!) but I have not looked back ever since. The car goes and goes...fast! It is very stable on the highway. The engine is still 'peppy'! The best 'people mover' car. I expect to either give it to my son or continue to ride into the sunset! No major repairs, just normal maintainance. I will by another before I die! Smokey

By 26 yrs old man on May 2 @ 11:00 am
Good for Teens
I have been driving this car for over 3- 1/2 years. No problem at all except changing the radiator. Very reliable and it's good for high school kids and college students.

By deewayne on October 23 @ 11:00 am
Great Car
A great car for daily commuting or a car to modify.

By Sub on July 8 @ 11:00 am
Very nice car
I've only had this car a short time, but it's fun to drive, quiet, clean, and runs great!

By Martha Marquez on March 17 @ 11:00 am
Best car
I've had my car for three years. I needed a car that was dependeble which this one was. I'm a single female that dosen't have time to take my car in and out of mechanics. I never once took my car because it gave me problems. I believe that Honda makes awesome cars. I plann to purchase another Honda.

By Don Parker on December 12 @ 11:00 am
Awesome Car
We are the original owners and after 128,000 miles this is by far the best car we have ever owned. We just sold it to a family member and bought a new 2003 Accord. Imagine that!! Being an engineer (read car nut) I have done all preventive maintenance myself and frankly that is all we have needed to do. The car has been extremely reliable. Feels as tight and responsive as when new. Use Mobil1 synthetic, car uses no oil at all.

By Stromson on January 6 @ 11:00 am
Great car
Bought this car last summer and its been sweet. Fuel economy is pretty good and its rather zippy for such an old car with low horsepower and torque. I've had no problems except with a broken door-handle but that was there when we bought it. I'm planning to upgrade the exaust and intake very shortly to give it a little more boost. Planning on having this car for a long time. (It only has 74000 miles on it).

By Sheri Johnson on December 1 @ 11:00 am
I love my Honda!
I've owned this car for 9 years & love it. It has never left me stranded & loks as good today as it did when I bought it many years ago.

By simmons195 on September 21 @ 11:00 am
Runs like a clock
This has been the greatest car that I have ever owned! I have owned it for 3.5 years and I have never had to change the breaks (I down shift). It has never left me sit. The only two problems I have had are the power antenna mast, and the drivers side power window gets stuck sometimes. Thats all! No mechanical problems at all. I had to replace the exaust from the cat back, but that will happen with any car. But It's treated me very well.

By tlccar1 on August 17 @ 11:00 am
best car ever
I love my 1993 Accord wagon! It is the best car I have ever owned - in fact, we love it so much we went out and bought a 2003 EX sedan!! It rides and handles great and is simply a joy to drive and own.

By j573 on November 10 @ 11:00 am
Best car you'll ever own
I rescued my 1993 LX after a friend of mine was about to let her go to a dealership trade in. That was 15k miles ago, at 155k. I'm up to 170k now, and have loved every minute. I've had a few easy fixes (main fuel relay, rubber trim, valve adjustments, etc), but no way can I complain. Especially not with 37mpg on the highway, a decent ride, and fair enough handling for a front drive sedan.

By the bullet on January 10 @ 11:00 am
Great Automobile
I've always loved the timeless styling of this generation of Accords. It also is the perfect size IMO (new cars are getting way too big). Amazingly, even with 87k miles, my black 10th Anniversary Edition Accord's automatic transmission shifts almost as smooth as my 2000 Camry XLE V6. My Accord's ride is a harsher than my Camry, but the Accord is much more "fun" to the drive.

By siera326 on March 11 @ 11:00 am
1993 Honda Accord SE
Love my car. I've never had any problems except with the power windows and the lighter socket.

By Mike823 on April 5 @ 11:00 am
Ok, did nickle & dime us a bit
Got this 5spd from my wife when she went mini-van for the kids. I sold my auto trans 1992 Accord. This one has been a good car, except for two major repairs. We had to do the AC 2 seasons ago for a few thousand, brakes once, and a new radiator (blew out on me and almost left me stranded). Other than that, pretty reliable and durable car. At 122K still on original timing belt!

By yoho711 on March 18 @ 11:00 am
Excellent Vehicle
My 1993 Honda Accord 4Dr LX Sedan is a perfect vehicle to drive. Japanese cars will always dominate other vehicles. This Accord has a perfect engine, transmission, performance, and etc. I recommend this vehicle to other car buyers out there.

By Freehold Jimmy on October 2 @ 3:00 am
I bought my Accord with 19,000 miles on it a year and a half old. Since then I've put on 157,000 over nine years of trouble free ownership. Nothing has needed replacement on this vehicle other than normal wear and tear (muffler, brake pads). Biggest tips: Mobile 1 synthetic evern 4k, and cross drilled front rotors. For some reason the rotors extend the life of the pads while giving the predicted benefit of enhanced stopping power.

By Jendawn on February 18 @ 3:00 am
Good ol' Honda
I bought my Honda used 5 years ago and it still runs great! I have 133,000 miles on it and last year when I got it smogged, the guy said it smogged like a new car. Change that oil every 3,500 and this car will last forever. Just be careful that when you change the timing belt, have those little cheap oil pan seals replaced at the same time or you'll be sorry. Great car.

By locord on March 15 @ 3:00 am
This is the best car that I have ever owned. I like it so much that I am having a hard time getting rid of it, even though it has now been replaced twice.

By zdriver on November 12 @ 3:00 am
It doesn't seem to want to wear out. It maintains its good looks inside and out. It's one of the prettiest Hondas ever made. The mechanics are second to none.

By hat on November 12 @ 3:00 am
A great car
I am now selling my 1993 Honda Accord because, with our kids gone, we have one car too many... but I part with it with great regret. Mileage is good, and it has had no major mechanical problems. Very, very reliable. I have never kept a car with 131,000 miles, but this one drives as good as ever.

By Mack Hibbard on October 25 @ 3:00 am
Honda for Life! ! !
Great car to own and drive. My two sister's had one right after college and they are just upgrading to brand new Honda's and love driving them each day. Being a used Honda, I still haven't found a thing I don't like yet. It's better than my Grand Am.

By zipcody on January 18 @ 3:00 am
love but it leaks...a lot!
i've spent very little money to maintain this great car and it has been very reliable and fun.

By peteyweed on August 22 @ 3:00 am
Trust My Car
I bought my car brand new with 7 miles on it in March 1993, now 11 years later and 205,000 miles, it still has as much power as it did the day the day I bought it. I have not had any problem with the engine in any way, except the manufacturer defect of the distributor (which was recalled). We do maintain it, with regular tune-ups and oil changes every 3 thousand miles. The only thing we have done, (aside from interior, mostly cosmetic problems) is regular maintenance with only 1 battery and of course tires.

By johndoemd on January 25 @ 3:00 am
Love my coupe
I've owned Nissans, Toyota, & a Mazda and this car is the only one still standing. I just reached 200,000 miles and I look forward to seeing 300,000.

By knoxtenor on November 16 @ 3:00 am
Why should I buy a new one?
The '93 EX Coupe (6 cyl manual 5 spd) was the closest thing to a new car I've ever owned. It was also by far the hottest, coolest car I've ever owned. I bought it in '95 w/ about 28K miles, it, and at 146K, it's still so amazingly reliable and fuel-effecient that I can't bear parting with it just because I want something modern and stylish with less wear-and-tear.

By m davis on April 28 @ 3:00 am
i love this car
in seven years we did not have a single problem with our accord. nothing broke, just had routine maintenence, oil changes and a tune-up at 120,000. still looks good, feels good, and drives good.

By Drake4985 on March 25 @ 11:00 am
Great little Honda
We bought this 1993 SE sedan in April 2001. It was a great car other than axles and radiator nothing else really went wrong. I sold the car to a Honda junkyard in summer 2003. A man in an old toyota truck pulled out right in front of me. I was going about 40mph the car held up great. It had 179,164.3 miles on it when it died.

By W Cooke on August 10 @ 11:00 am
I expected much better
I bought this car because of its' reputation. I was let down. 75k miles when I got it and the ABS pump was shot. $1300 to replace, no thanks. The counter balance shaft belt broke and now it shakes like crazy at idle. Trans vibrates bad between 35 and 50 mph like it's trying to shift but can't. Oil leaking at every possible place. Both interior door hanldes broke. CV joints on both sides went this year. The factory radio was the worst thing I've ever heard. Now, the engine is very strong and burns no oil. The seats are very comfortable. Everything works inside. The style is the best. Still a great looking car.

By JRPCS1 on November 4 @ 11:00 am
Couldn't be happier - 11 years later!
This is a GREAT car. No problems and great performance through its entire life. I'm ready for my next GREAT car - a hybrid.

The '93 Honda Accord is a Great Car!
This vehicle is the Best!

By grabber_1965 on March 1 @ 11:00 am
What a Great Car!
I've owned this car for over 9 years and have put over 140,000 miles since purchase. It always starts, always runs well, and even with over 160,000 total miles on the car, there are still no rattles or squeaks! Only 1 expensive repair for the ABS computer chip, but it was covered under the warranty. Didn't have to replace the alternator until 130K miles. This car has proven Honda reliablility to me. It still runs quiet, never stalls in cold weather, and gets excellent traction in the snow. With normal maintenance, I still get over 27 miles per gallon.

By teenager on November 25 @ 11:00 am
My first car
I bought my accord just a few months ago. It has been great. Its my first car and I love it. I had issues with the alternator and car starting and electrical stuff. We replaced the battery and the alternator to no avail. When we got it looked at, it turns out that the previous owner replaced the alternator belt on incorrectly, and now it is perfect. I love the gas mileage...300 miles per fill-up! A great first car. Its got 92,000 miles and is still going strong!

By Irishdude on January 24 @ 11:00 am
May 93 Accord
I have owned Honda vehicles for some 20 years. I have had very few issues which would make me consider changing brands. The only issue I consistently had to address is the air conditioner compresor failures which required an approximate $1000 replacement cost. My 1993 Accord LX has had 3 replacements since I purchased the car.

By Eccentricity84 on October 21 @ 11:00 am
"My Baby"
I am a junior in college and my parents bought this car in 2002 as a high school graduation present. I LUV my car! I will drive this car until it won't move and the way it runs at 123,000 miles, that may be a long time from now. It gets regular services and the only thing extra I've had to do was to replace a CV axle last year. It cost about five hundred dollars and on average, including services, i spend about $600 a year on upkeep. Better than $600/month on a piece of junk. Don't sit there, go buy one now!

Bought this car new for my wife. (and me too) traded in 1988 century. Bummer. Have had wonderful luck with it. Expensive to recharge A/C but worth. Thinking of trading in for 2005 Odyssey. Seating kinda low making getting out uncomfortable. Engine purrs like a kitten.

Honda is number one
This year Honda was well designed. The interior has held up well for 11 years and 211000 miles. I have never driven a better car than a Honda. I have long legs and yet I do not even have to put the seat all the way back to drive. It has plenty of power for a high mileage, four cylinder. I would suggest everyone get a Honda.

1993 Accord is my Best Friend
This is the most wonderful car ever made. It has been totally reliable, saves you a ton on gas and insurance, and is very zippy and fun to drive- especially in a 5 speed. I have had mine for 11 years, and it has never let me down. When I'm ready to reitre it and get a new car, I plan to put it into storage for the next 40 years untill its considered a classic. That's how much I love this car. No Joke.

grumpy honda
Grumpy car. Doesn't like to start in the winter. Expensive to fix when the AC broke 2 times and a pain to fix when the car would randomly stall and not start again on hills. Espically during rush hour. The gear shift occasionally decides not to budge, leaving me without a ride. And the trunk and windows leak. otherwise, not bad

By jeff on September 19 @ 2:26 am
great dependable fun fuel efficent car.lasts 200,000 plus miles if you do your maintenance on time and keep it done thrughout the life of the car.also dont modify engine for this 200,000 plus mile to happen.most ones i checked at salvage yard had closer to 300,000 miles.this is a good way to do your on evaulation of dependibility.

Love my car. (Yes I do own a lot of cars) Very dependable, nearly 181,000 miles on the odometer. Over these past 12 years I've replaced my timing-belt ($310 bucks!!!!!) Moonroof motor ($799.99!!!!) But she's running strong.

By Wendy M on August 5 @ 7:40 am
great car
I bought this car with 83000 miles in 2004 from a friend and had a full paint job and service, its a beautiful pearlized green. One year later I'm still getting offers for up to $5000. Wouldn't part with it for anything. It runs great and look great. love this car!

Can't complain #2
I now have 324,000 miles on my EX Automatic Accord. Since my last review I have put on 100,000 miles. my repairs: new tires, antenna inside replaced,break pads, front window from rock chips, valve cover gasket. I still drive it fast, handles well, and will write again my next 100,000 miles..No car payments for more years to come, YEA!!

Car shuts off randomly while driving....
I got this Honda from a Honda dealer and friend who sold it to me with no problems, it passed inspection and everything else with flying colors. I should also mention the engine had only 113,000 miles on it when I got it, this is considered "just breaking it in" for a Honda. I had the belts replaced, regular oil changes and tune-ups, this car was looked after, but keep reading...it all started when the car began to have a hard time maintaining a charge after it was started up, so we got it a new Battery, fine for a while...then, it shut off on the highway twice, Im glad I walked away from both. In addition to the stalling, it had problems in the winter too, but it gets worse....

By Margaret Graham on May 7 @ 3:16 pm
I bought this vehicle brand new and I haven't had any major problems. It drive about 85-90% as good as it did when I purchased it. I also give credit to an excellent mechanic who has been very conscientious about the care of my Honda.

By cobra989 on March 22 @ 8:06 am
awesome little car
I truly enjoy owning my little 93' accord, it's fun to drive and it goes... well lets just say realy fast!

By Paul on June 29 @ 12:56 am
Big Disappointment
Reasonably comfortable. Fairly quiet. Not much fun to drive. Very expensive to own. It gets 19/24 mpg. This for a 2.2 4-cylinder is ridiculous. Parts for this car are surprisingly costly. For instance, most car manufacturers will use two formed-rubber hoses (~$20) for the cooling system. Honda uses somewhere around 10, making the hoses alone ~$80. Another example: Honda designed the front brakes such that you must re-build the entire front-end to replace the rotors (a very high wear item). Other manufacturers keep the rotors on this two small screws. This makes a ~$200 repair closer to $800. Big disappointment overall. As the cost of ownership is equal, I'm selling this and buying a BMW.

By John on August 6 @ 5:56 am
I can't believe how good these cars are. I bought a used one with 190,000 miles on it. Everyone thought I was crazy to pay $3500 for it but let me tell you. Now I have 250K on the car and IT STILL RUNS LIKE NEW. I will never sell this car, Cheap on gas, but you do have to fix few common problems every now and then. CV axes, radiator, speed sensor, and oxygen sensor. THAT's it. And only every 60K or so... not bad. So don't just keep reading this, go and buy one. You will love it.

By nk on May 1 @ 7:20 am
Outstanding car
I have had this for the past 13 years, and it had been the most reliable piece of equipment I ever owned. For a 4-cyl, it provides unbelievable acceleration and all the power options have been working well to date.

By cobra989 on August 7 @ 9:43 am
Fast and Fun!
I purchased this vehicle about a year ago, and have driven the car almost 15000 miles. I really like this car, she is really fast! This is my favorite year out of the early 90's accords because of the extra power etc... Some of the mods that I have done are; full intake and exhaust, indiglo guages, supercharger. The thing that I was scared about the most when I did the exhaust kit was that it would sound like a Civic, but that I4 2.2L sounds great and its definitely a head turner! The only thing that I would do to change the car a little bit is to make the engine more accessible and repairs less expensive, other than that I love this car, its gonna be hard to let go.

By Ken on September 9 @ 2:53 am
Absolute Best Car I've Ever Owned
Buy one. Watch for external rust, but other than that, it will be the best car you can have. Love this particular body style. Solid, solid, solid.

By W Cooke on April 6 @ 12:33 pm
Update on 3 year old review
Since I wrote the last review on this car, things have only gotten much worse. Car now has 142k miles. Things that have had to be replaced so far: CV joints 2X, tie rod ends, upper ball joints and control arms, rear engine mount, A/C, ABS, rear rotors, front rotors 2X, exhaust 3X, oil pressure switch, oil pan gasket, power antenna, rear window seal, 6 headlamps. This car is much faster than its suspension can handle. I had heard that Honda built very reliable cars. This is 10 times over the WORST car I've ever owned.

By 1993 10th Anniversar on May 25 @ 3:10 pm
My "new" car
I still call my 1993 Honda Accord my new car. I do love it, but I don't like the whistling from the windows if I go more than 30 mph. Otherwise, I love my Honda and I will buy another. I love the style, the large front window and the large back window. No cars compete with that so far. Otherwise, I love my car.

By SammyDbull8827 on March 9 @ 10:23 am
Love my Honda
My wonderful boss who just bought a new Civic EX coupe was sweet enough to pass on his all stock '93 Accord EX Coupe to me for free when he found out I needed a set of wheels. It had only 82,000 miles at the time and in mint conditon with the exception of a dent in the driver's fender. The rear spoiler and alloy wheels really brings out the sporty look of this car. I get a lot of compliments especially from women where ever i go. I even get people asking me if I want to sell her. This car starts up everytime and runs extremely smooth and tight expecially on the highway. Getting 23/27 mpg avg with A/C on. I will not part with her and plan on driving it for another 200,000 + miles. ;-)

By Chris on February 19 @ 7:23 am
Pretty good car
It drives pretty well, I have the 5 speed manual, and it can go, iv done alot of mods to it, and tons more to come, and very easy to customize. New H22a engine on the way too. WOOHOO!

Owned 15 Years and Still Love It
I bought my Accord in 1993 and thought I would keep it 10 years max. Nearly 15 years and over 140K miles later I have no plans on replacing it any time soon. This has been the best vehicle I've ever owned. It's required relatively few repairs although it started to show it's age a few years ago needing new clutch, radiator, etc. But you I would expect to replace that kind of stuff on a car this old. The only problems I've had is with the cruise control that has acted strange from day one. Also the temperature control gets stuck after staying in the same position all summer. Too bad the new Accord's seats are too stiff and uncomfortable or I might have bought another one.

By Roald Atle Furre on May 4 @ 4:43 pm
Legend Coupe 1993 still Excellent 2008
The car accelerate as a dream. Nice sound of the engine. Low consumption compared to power. Easy to handle in dangerous situations. Reaction is fast as your mind.

By Matt on September 18 @ 7:50 am
Best Car Ever!
I bought this car exactly one year ago today and I haven't been anything but completely happy. The interior quality is absolutely amazing, the carpet is plush and the fabric on the seats is extremely durable and comfy. The dashboard still looks like new, no fading or cracking at all. Even at 80 MPH, there is not a single squeak or rattle from anything. I've had no troubles with the engine at all, it's got plenty of HP and pickup, and cruises at 70 with no problem. I've had to do nothing but regular maintenance. Oil changed every 7500K. I've replaced a thermostat and muffler, all normal-wear things. I look forward to many more years of extreme reliability from my favorite Honda!

By pereira on February 2 @ 3:16 pm
I simply love driving it especially the five speed one, I love the way it shifts. It's a lot of fun. I have one that used to be automatic but I changed the transmission to a five speed one.

By doofus on May 24 @ 5:36 pm
Accord is #1
I've had my Accord since I bought it new in 1993. It is ultra-reliable. I've replaced only tires, brakes, and exhaust in 15 years of ownership. I plan to sell it in the next month or so. Having bought the car for $13,000 and considering it's resale value of about $2000 there is no better value in the automotive industry. Can't wait to get my hands on the 2009!

Best Car I Ever Had!
I've had Volkswagens and Studebakers, but out of all of those cars, this is the best car I have owned. My husband bought it a week before my son was born. Now after 11 years of ownership, it still runs strong. The seats are comfortable and durable, my son loves the back armrest a lot. I love the space in the back (it's a station wagon). It has never left me stranded on the freeway. I've driven state to state in the car and when the gas reserve light comes on, it gives me a lot of time to go tank up. But now, the paint is fading (it's dark red), it's getting worn out and it's time to go.

By marko on August 16 @ 6:23 pm
16 Years And Still Going
I figured I wouldn't keep my new Accord for more than 10 years, tops. 16 years later it's still going strong. The only major repairs have been clutch, master & slave brake cylinders, radiator, oil seals and an engine mount. I also had the timing belt and water pump replaced twice but only as preventative measures, not because they failed. Not bad for a 16-year-old car. We kept thinking about trading it in but thought "why?" it's been such a good car. The A/C still blows cool even on the hottest days in Phoenix. It also gets excellent gas millage (30 MPG). New Accord seats are too stiff on long drives so we won't replace with a new one. They don't make them like this anymore.

By BPolston on November 18 @ 8:16 am
Best car ever
Bought it in 97 with 40000 miles on it. It now has 271000 and still is going strong. No oil burning just keep up on the maintenance. Four starters, has original alternator and struts. Rear brake shoes have not been replaced yet.

By Steve on April 9 @ 7:56 pm
Excellent all around vehicle
Bought this car new 16 years ago. Now has 175K and it still runs well and looks good. It has needed some repairs recently, which I would expect with all the miles, but overall it has been an excellent and very reliable car. The four cylinder engine is economical delivering 23 city/28 highway, yet offers plenty power to "get up and go". Easy to drive, with excellent handling characteristics. Comfortable seats and nice view of the road with low dashboard and large windshield. Economical to operate and maintain. Tires wear like iron, I get almost 50K miles on a set of tires. Brakes last a long time too.

By John Hutzell on October 28 @ 10:03 am
My Honda has 190,000 miles and still going strong. I had to replace the entire front end and 3rd gear just went out, but I believe this was from lack of care from the previous owner. I'm getting around 36 mpg on the highway. This car takes a licking and keeps on ticking

By Ruchy on July 29 @ 6:56 pm
Had to say goodbye, so sad
This was my husband's car, well on 12/18/09 a budget rental truck slammed into the pass. side. She had 209k and NO signs of breakage coming soon. We drove away straight as an arrow, but it would cost more to fix, believe me we thought about it. THIS IS THE MOST RELIABLE CAR EVER!! I personally own a 91 accord wagon, had it for 12 yrs. she always starts, I have the oldest car at work, but it always gets me there. We were planning on giving it to our 15 yr. old son, nothing more important then knowing your child has a reliable car to get them home. But we decided to part it out and say good bye to the work horse. Definitely will always own Hondas.

By doubtfulowner on December 11 @ 11:00 pm
Timing belt problem
My dad gave me his 1993 Accord a year ago - 79,000 miles and well-maintained. It had a new timing belt put in at 40,000 miles as preventative maintenance. My daughter had the car at college where the timing belt just blew at 81,000 miles and as a result, the car now needs $4000 worth of engine work. The car is clean and still relatively low mileage, but this seems to be a serious design flaw -- a (relatively common) breakdown that causes total engine failure.

By TT on October 11 @ 2:10 am
11 years of pure driving bliss!
Honda got it all right with this sweet little machine! This is an amazing little sports sedan in sheep's clothing. The extremely smooth 140 horsepower 16 valve dual overhead cam engine sings when the RPMs get above 3,000 plus and it just keeps on a pulling. The entire design of the car is brilliant as it sits low with a low dash and big glass so the driving position, instrumentation and view out is perfect. The suspension and steering make it a blast to drive especially when tied to the 5 speed manual. The interior is smart and sporty and makes most new cars pale in comparison. I love this car because it's the best of all worlds and cost next to nothing to maintain.

By Brian on September 12 @ 7:43 am
251,000k and running!
I drive to work 80 miles round trip 5 days a week and the car has 251,000 miles and still running strong, need I say more!

By eric on June 20 @ 2:00 pm
Best car I'll ever own
Rock solid, bullet proof reliability! 227,000 miles and counting, I drive it every day, and love it every day. Original clutch, exhaust, interior perfect, nothing ever breaks on this car (the left headlamp bulb was installed at the factory, and is still there after 17 years!). Not true, the power antenna breaks due to the high heat in Arizona, but I'll forgive this wonderful gem of a car. I cannot praise Honda enough for this car and can't wait till they introduce another one like it. After all, it has to wear out someday, doesn't it?

By SDB on May 6 @ 8:00 pm
I have my accord for 3 yrs.now. I not had to do much other than normal maint. I've had problems with the fuel pump relay and front-end susp. All in all pretty good car in 2010 I went on a 5 state trip @ 15 hr.drive with no problems

By Georgia on September 27 @ 9:13 am
Great Car
I bought this car at the end of 2002 with 92,000 miles on it. It was an extremely reliable car. I drive round trip 72 miles a day to work. I always said I would drive it till it died. It was a great car for the last 8 years and I just traded it in on a 2007 EX-L Accord. My '93 had 232,000 miles on it and still going. Had begun to replace things over the last few years - but that was to be expected. Got 180,000 miles out of the original clutch! AC / Heat still worked. Great, dependable car. One of the reasons I traded it, was the newer Accords are roomier and my kids are growing up and needing more leg room. I hated to see my '93 Accord go, but so far I love the 2007 as well.

Absolutel "bulletproof"
I purchased my 1993 Accord LX wagon used in 1996 with 40,000 miles on the odometer. Now, 14 years later it is still running strong with 321,000 miles on it. Other than the usual rust over the rear wheel wells, my only other problem has been a leaking rear main seal, which leaks about a quart every 2500 miles. I run four snow tires on it during the winter and it has never gotten stuck. Alas, when I found out that Honda was not re-introducing the Accord wagon (they gave us the Crosstour instead), I opted to buy a CR- V as a replacement vehicle. This wagon has been absolutely bulletproof, and I hate to get rid of it. Best car I have ever owned.

My accord
Bought this car in April of 2010. It had been owned by a couple since 1994 but had been sitting for 6mons. After a jump, the car had no issues coming back to life. The five speed manual makes the most of the zippy 2.2 L. It's way faster than my moms 01 Vtec Accord! Its ultra reliable. I with 171K I drove it 3.5 Hours at 80-90 mph and over a mountain pass no probs and averaged 37 mpg. Let's just say I drive a faster, better looking, and significantly better looking and practical prius! Acon works, but it doesn't love the heat. Sunroof is awesome. Stock stereo is actually great, an aftermarket cd deck would make it excellent.

By Mike on June 9 @ 3:00 am
Best Car I Ever Had
This car ran like it was new when it was 16 years old with 190k miles. Its life was cut short by an accident, but I loved this car. Many cars (even newer ones) make noises or everything just seems flimsy, but this car ran and felt great. I chose not to buy a Honda again because I believe they have actually become overrated. I loved this car, but the prices for cars like this have become outrageous in the past few years. It was a great car, not a magical car that never will die or require maintenance.

By thafh on July 2 @ 9:29 am
Still "According..."
This will was my fourth accord that I purchased in September of 2010. I owned a 91 EX coupe 5 speed in high school (3 years), a 99 EX-L sedan 5 speed for 4 years, a 91 LX sedan 5 speed for 5 years (that one had idling issues btw), and now I'm back to my roots with my EX, which was only! The performance is good considering it's age but I don't think it was faster than my 99 vtec. My only problem is that it isn't too comfortable but that's b/c I was spoiled by the roomier EX-L and I'm 6ft with long legs! lol. I know some have had the misfortune of owning a lemon, but Honda has been good to me for the past 12 years! When I finish school, I plan on an 06-07 V6 sedan 6 speed!

By thafh on March 2 @ 7:00 am
Perhaps my best Accord!
I just posted yesterday, but I still have more things to say! I drove my 93 EX today and noticed that it just might be better than the 99 EX-L I owned in the early 2000s! My 93 may not be as big and comfortable, but it's definitely on par with that 99!! The 5 speed brings all 142 horses to life and the styling still holds up today! I have a factory cd player in there and the factory speakers still thump! I know the car is nearly 20 years old, but next to this car and the legend, name another 18-20 year old car that looks this good... Exactly.

My baby since 1995!!!!
I love, Love, LOVE my 1993 Honda Accord EX 2-door coupe! I bought her in 1995, so I am her 2nd owner....but I still consider that I am her only owner. This has been the best and most reliable car I ever owned. She has just over 220,000 miles (200,000 driven by me) and has had only minor repairs over the years. Biggest things were timing belt, radiator, and brakes. Most parts are still the original. I can't say enough about how great this model year was (and still is). Her beauty on the road still holds up among all the "new model" babes out there. People are always commenting to me about how good she looks!
