At 300K miles

"I bought this car new April 1, 1996. Original engine still running strong. I have had no major issues during my ownership, just standard maintenance and parts wearing out. 5 speed EX. Clutch went at 234,000 miles. Only real issue is rust at this point. Have also replaced air conditioning system when the compressor went at 275K miles. If you're a shade tree mechanic this is a great car. Parts are cheap and easy to replace. Planning to drive her to 500K miles."

Amazing Grace

"Love my DX. Original owner. Purchased from dealer who couldn't wait to get it off his lot because nobody wanted a 5 speed. No major mechanical problems. Only now am I starting to have a few problems--oil burning, oxygen sensor. At one point I got 40 mpg on highway but now that's down to 34 mpg. The storage capacity is unbelievable to the point where my friends call it the clown car. Never planned to keep this car for as long as I have but life's twists and turns led me to hang on to her because she is so reliable. Every mechanic who has worked on my car has offered to buy it."

Pros: "alot of new parts, low mileage engine & 5spd trany"

Cons: "wrecked bad drivers front/undercarriage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"Bought car wrecked years ago and totally rebuilt the car. Looked almost new, drove great for 3 months up until I wrecked it/totaled it. Front end damage is beyond repair or I'd fix it myself. Hondas are light/fast & fun to drive yet when ya wreck they crunch like a pop can literaly. I just wanted to get an idea of the value before I decide to sell it as is or part it out. Getting the fair value here gives me a great place to start at, thanks"

"This has been a great little all purpose vehicle. I've gotten good mileage and performance. Good pickup from stopped position. I was original owner and would not be selling it but it outlasted me(age). For an older person, the non-power steering makes it a little more difficult to operate. Which is why I gave it a 9 rather than a 10 in that category. The other 9 rating was for comfort. Somehow, the design of the seat was incompatible with my bad back. This car has given me 17 years of great service. I would recommend it to anyone (except the elderly)."
