Over the next 8 years it needed 4 rack & pinions, 3 windshield washer pumps, countless power door lock membrane switches. Found him a ’92 DX Coupe, in that grey/purple color and black plastic bumpers, 130k miles, automatic, half-dollar sized spots of rear quarter panel rot, got it for $950.

They don’t care to drive, it is just something to be done to get from point a to point b and they just want something they can add gas to (or charge) and then put it in D and drive.

It is true that for the 1991 model year some cars were built with drivers side airbags only because Ford had problems sourcing enough propellant for the production run (this showed up as a credit on the window sticker). Great driver, gorgeous looking. This same design proved ultimately fragile for the much heavier V6 Hondas like the Odyssey (which I also owned — failed transmission and many other problems). So the 2 speed Hondamatic was just a little bit behind for being used in the late ’70s. The transmission shifted fairly harshly through the gears as all automatic Hondas did (I later came to understand). 1991 Honda Accord EX Wagon 2.2L 4cyl -Automatic- 93K Miles :Must see No Reserve!

This is a difficult list to create because cars are not always directly comparable, and expectations of size and class change with time. Fantastic cars, overbuilt as hell and definitely a hoot to drive, even with the automatic. In fact, it’s #3 among all vehicles for highest resale value. I was bothered at how long Honda took to fit their cars with airbags and anti-lock brakes (also unavailable on ’91 Accords and most ’92s and ’93s as well).

That’s the case for almost any segment of cars or trucks. Perfect vacation home car. I owned an automatic ’92 EX sedan. One curiousity about this year of Accords was that only the wagon had a driver-side airbag in it; the coupes and sedans Iacked one and had those annoying motorized shoulder belts to comply with the passive restraint law.

Far better handling, visibility, quality of materials and just all around excellent. If you don’t think one of these Accords or especially a ’92 Camry didn’t completely and totally obliterate the likes of an Acclaim or A-body Century or 1st gen Lumina in terms of quality and refinement, modern design and dynamics, man I don’t know what planet you’re from. 1991 Honda Accord LX Used 2.2L I4 16V Automatic NO RESERVE, C 1991 Honda Accord LX Used 2.2L I4 16V Automatic NO RESERVE, C 1991 Honda Accord EX Used 2.2L I4 16V Automatic NO RESERVE, 1991 Honda Accord EX Used 2.2L I4 16V Automatic NO RESERVE, C 1991 Honda Accord DX Used 2.2L I4 16V Automatic NO RESERVE, 1991 Honda Accord Automatic 4 Cylinder NO RESERVE, 1991 Honda Accord EX Automatic 4 Cylinder NO RESERVE.
