Losing the 1990s-level of body roll does wonders for both grip and handling, and now it can be done without losing much ride quality. It had a hint of sportiness, it was comfortably sized, and had typical Honda reliability, as seen in this. I bought my 90 Accord about 6 months ago and could not be happier. All of the general maintenance things are easy to work on under the hood. None of us can figure it out!! The interior feels very durable and shows very little wear. Put two people in the back and it becomes wishy-washy on the road, swaying to and fro like a drunk sailor.
General Comments: This is the sixth Honda I have owned, and bar far the biggest headache. I fell in love with the tight steering and low cowl design during the test drive. A few years back I bought an 89 Accord with almost brand new looking leather interior, had it for five days until a driver ran a red light T boned me and then left the scene. If you don't have access to air tools, you would have a very hard time doing them. Before the advent of the internet, when you had to be an automotive journalist to test a car, most were very in-depth, covering each and every aspect of the model at hand. These were my favorite models, loved the simplicity and layout of the interior. Available with four- or six-cylinder engines, manual or automatic transmissions, and coupe or sedan body styles, the Accord has a diverse lineup that offers something for most tastes.
At the rate it is going, I may just still have it 20 years from now. Honda produced a wagon body style for the third and fourth generation of the Accord but has since been discontinued. One of the longest-running vehicles in the midsize class, the is also one of the best selling cars in the U. In terms of size, the current generation Accord is still a large car and has an expansive interior as well as a large trunk. General Comments: I would certainly buy this car again.
Also the valve cover gasket melted out at 157K which was only about 20 bucks to replace if you do it yourself. Treat yourself to a new Honda. Transmission and related parts have been the biggest problems. I put very little effort into it besides pumping gas into it every week. Three colors were offered for the 10th Anniversary Edition: Frost White, Granada Black Pearl, and Arcadia Green Pearl. For the first time a 3-door hatchback was no longer available internationally. I only kept it 3 years, since it was my one-and-only adventure in leasing.
The most serious problem now is that the front brake rotors are warped and cracked, which makes the wheel and steering wheel shake violently if I have to hit the brakes fairly firmly. It's a bit annoying from time to time, but it means less mechanical things can break down. Exhaust mid pipe replaced, muffler, timing belt and tune-up done in 1998 at 100,000 miles. Also noteworthy, all Accords equipped with automatic transmissions used an electronically controlled rear engine mount to reduce low frequency noise and vibration. Everything is tight and solid with the body and cabin.
The coupe and wagon taillights though still resembled those from the 1990-1991 Accord. From 2010 to 2015, Honda sold a crossover variant of the Accord called the Crosstour and it was available with either a four- or six-cylinder engine and in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. I have personally owned this car for over 7 years and put approx. I replaced the sway bar bushing because they were dry rotted and splitting. Another thing that sold me on this car all those years ago was the new body design. At low engine speeds, fluid is routed through the valve damping vibration.
Found it nearly impossible to keep the alternator belt tightened enough to avoid squealing; when it is tight enough, after a couple weeks it starts squealing again. I am totally in love with the Accord of this vintage. These semi-automatic restraints were a two component system; a motorized shoulder belt along with a non-integrated and manually operated seatbelt. Original Honda battery finally gave up the ghost in 1997 at 95,000 miles. Performance wise it was not that bad even though it was not built for high and fast performance.
At about 165K the drive axle had to be replaced. Although much larger than its predecessor the sedan's styling was evolutionary, featuring the same low slung design and wraparound rear window as the 3rd generation Accord. Cruise control, power windows, original radio, interior buttons and other vehicle features are all original and still working. For 1990, the Honda Transformer officially becomes a mid-size automobile, the Honda Accord. An 8-button, 4-speaker Honda-Bose audio system, automatic transmission, leather trim, body colored bumper and body side moldings were standard. They are perfect for a first time owner. The process reversed to release them when opened.
Quick access to automobile-catalog website - - type in a browser: a-c. They had larger front brakes to compensate for the added weight and unlike other U. Not unless parents buy it for them not just co sign. It was my first car bought brand new in 1989 when the new models first came off the trucks. When cold, cannot get the key out of the ignition.
