"The 99' Honda Accord was my first car and I still drive today. It still feels tight as a drum even at 191k. The 5 speed manual transmission is still butter smooth and I replaced the clutch 60k ago. Its very comfortable even with the original suspension. I bring the 2.3L 4 cyl VTEC engine up to redline a couple times a week and it still has quite a lot of power to it. I get about 28 MPG in this car if I drive it carefully, 21 to 24 MPG if I run it hard. The design of the car looks fantastic, but I do recommend getting tinted headlight housings if you have a dark colored Accord, it will 50x look better. Did I forget to mention its very reliable? As long as you take care of this car, the car will take care of you."
"Very few repairs for this car. Very dependable; fires up each time and runs like a champ. The V6 has plenty of pep. Very responsive. I have owned this car for 12 years and cannot see a good reason to part with it. Plan on driving it as long as she runs. Have been on many long road trips in this car. Good gas mileage. Honda makes a good product."
Pros: "Lots of get up and go, dependable, low maintenance"

"This has been my best car. Only one non standard maintenance repair since I bought it new. My husband bought a 2009 Honda Civic hybrid, too bad it was such a lemon. Now he doesn't want another Honda."
"no major repairs except normal maintenance. there's rust on the wheel wells, other signs of age and mileage, but clean underneath and reliable. will drive until can drive no more. would be hard pressed to buy anything else when the time comes."
"Awesome car only problem is the transmission clunks when putting into gear but only sometimes. Still drives great and have had no problems yet. Never done anything to it besides basic routine maintenance. Great buy"
Pros: "Comfortable, reliable, secretly full of character"
Cons: "Noisy, a little slow, not the smoothest engine"

"It's all about value. Bought this car used, and after a couple of years, she's done a fantastic job. Haven't had to replace anything outside of routine maintenance aside from the drivers side window regulator. Good looking car too, considering the time it was built. The interior alone is much more attractive to my eye than most new cars. Runs a little sluggish, especially in the cold, however I'm sure with a tune up these problems would be easily solved. Overall, great great car."
