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.

Awesome car! Smooth ride and excellent acceleration. Mine has 300,000 miles and still runs like a champ. Easy to fix and easy on the wallet. Parts are cheap and generally in stock. I dislike the power seat belts, their motor burnt out a while ago and the interior does not hold up to wear and tear well. But they are very dependable cars! I have seen alot of complaints about break vibration...

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.
