The speedometer on my 2006 Odyssey goes up to 160 mph. I was thinking of
trying it one day.....

Hell, I thought my 2007 Accord EX-L V-6 6MT Sedan was governed, until I
got it out on an isolated stretch of interstate and made it to 125 mph,
which is where I got scared and backed off the gas. I hate to think of
trying to do 160 in my sedan.

Now here is the kicker. Yesterday, while on the interstate, I was doing
about 85 MPH and I was passed up by a Civic. I was like WTF because my
late wife's 1997 Civic became so unstable at around 80 MPH that I could
not think of going any faster in a Civic. The one that passed me up was
of the 2002 body style, so maybe those are a little more stable at
higher speeds?

if that was the case, there was something wrong with it. maybe a broken
rear trailing arm bushing? dead shock? wheel balance? both my 89
civic and my 90 crx have the same suspension as the 97 and they're solid
for as fast as they can go - which is a good deal faster than that!

Agreed, my '88 Civic was fine up to about 95 mph.

Many years ago I was in an '84 Civic wagon that went up to 116 mph.

Depends what you mean by stable. On a straight, flat, dry road with
no crosswinds or traffic or intersections, yeah, stable.

I've never had my Accord over about 90, nor any car much over 100.
The Accord is marvelously "stable" at 80, but I wouldn't want to do
any slalom work in it at that speed or higher. In a Honda 2000,
mebbe?

By going downhill on an interstate at 1:00am, I once got my 1986
Civic Si up to 125 MPH. The car will still easily exceed 100 with no
instability. It's for sale, BTW...

if you're doing 80 through intersections, you're out of your mind.

find an empty road and push it. if it's been properly maintained and
has decent tires, these 90's hondas handle great and are dead steady.
if not, there's something wrong. my 2000 from factory was a pig in
cross-winds and followed grooves in the road like crazy. decent tires
and a decent alignment from someone that knew their business cured that.
