1990 Honda Accord Problems

Oil Leak in Distributor May Cause Misfires/Loss of Power

An oil leak inside the distributor can cause the engine to misfire resulting in a loss of power. It is common for the distributor to be replaced to correct this concern.

Power Door Locks to Activate Intermittently

Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.

Driver's Door May not Open

The driver's door latch assembly can break internally, which causes the door to stay closed. The interior and exterior door handles do not work to open the door. Our technicians note that the door panel must be removed while the door is closed (likely damage will occur) and the latch assembly must be drilled in a specific spot for the door to open.

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.
