1990 Honda Accord Reviews

Just purchased a 1990 Accord LX coupe with 58k miles. I've had Hondas in the past and find the 1990-93 the best model ever built. Have a small water leak coming from the driver's side automatic seat belt track area. Anyone looking for a GREAT used car, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND a 1990-93 Accord.
Bought new and now has 330,000 miles just put 80,000 mile tires on it. Super car rides smooth and great on gas. Plan to keep till the wheels fall off.
