I bought a high mile 1995 Accord EX in 2012 after an accident totaled my 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer. I was not financially prepared at the time to buy another car so I needed something very affordable and reliable to get me to work for a while. I knew this meant I would be looking for an older high mileage car. I found the Accord for sale by a private seller for $1200. The speedometer hadn't worked for some time (the only thing that didn't work), but he estimated the mileage was around 250k. The car had been meticulously maintained with records to prove it. I took it for a drive- it ran like a champ and I bought it on the spot. For the price I paid I couldn't be happier. The biggest downside for me was the car's appearance. I live in Minnesota, where years of winter road salt had rusted parts of the body pretty severely. Particularly over the rear wheel wells (a common area for rust on this car) and the bottoms of the doors. A year and a half later, after repairing the body rust damage myself, replacing the resonator (exhaust) pipe, and continuing to change the oil ahead of schedule- it's still running great and I am happily continuing to put off a car payment for as long as this car will keep on going. I am truly impressed with its reliability.
I bought this car new and I have over 250,000 miles on it. It has been the best car we have ever had. I can't bring myself to part with it. I know I will need to someday, but I hear so many bad reviews on all the newer models. I have replaced the timing belt, ignition switch, tires replaced 3 times. Brakes replaced 3 times. It runs better than my daughters Audi and her previous luxury cars. It only has one problem. It shimmys when I press on the brake. But it doesn't do it in cold weather.
this car is a good car I have replaced ,starter,speedsensor an I still have to change door lock actuater an srs need to up graded other than that the car still runs grate.
Runs like it's designed to. Never given me any major problems. Great car overall.
I bought this car for my sons first car. It has been exactly what I thought it would be. The car had over 100,000 on it when we bought it and have put roughly $1000.00 in it for typical repair items on a car of this age and mileage. 1. Water pump and timing belt, do both as they have to remove the timing belt to replace the water pump. 2. Replaced the starter, did myself and saved over $100 bucks. 3. Replaced radiator, the thing just disintegrated, it was weird, replaced myself and again saved over $100 bucks. 4. Replaced brake pads myself and saved a bunch of money. 5. Replaced window lift motor and power antena, did both of these myself. I am not a mechanic by trade have a limited knowledge but the willigness to do these things myself. Hondas are typically easy to work on just need some basic tools. We have enjoyed this car for several years now. It has been a great first car for a high school student.
This is one of the most dependable cars anyone can own, the engines last for over 200k miles if treated right and the brakes can stop better than most new cars. General maitenance is all thats required for owning this car, depending on the area you live in, some slightly pricier items may need replacing quicker due to wear and tear, but nothing huge and bankrupting. My car has 141000 miles on it and still runs smooth. Note that this type of car isnt made to have fancy suspension or noise isolation of a luxury car, it is simply a durable everyday car.
9 out of 10 stars for all out car worth the money you put into it with unlimited possibleitys
