That car isn't even broken in yet. As long as it has been taken care of,
you should be able to put another 100K on it.

I have a 94 Accord EX with 375,000 KM. I have had a crack on the engine
block that I fixed with some JB weld. Besides the normal items, such as
brakes and timing belts, etc. This car is rock solid. Doesn't burn oil,
drives smooth and gives me 31 MPG on the highway with a K&N.

Just make sure that the body is in good shape and the owner wasn't a moron
and didn't change the oil.

Just put it this way, I will never buy anything else except Honda's.

Even if I had enough money to buy a Benz, I wouldn't waste my time. They
are pieces of Junk (MB That is!!)

I have a '93 with 140K miles on it and it runs like new. You will likely
need to put a new timing belt on this car should you buy it. That will set
you back $300+ if I remember correctly. They will also want you to replace
the water pump while they are down there. These cars are great. The '93 is
the last year of that model. The '94 is a new design.

I have 215000 miles on my '92 LX. I bought it new. Mine is starting to
rust at the joint where the door window frame meets the top front corner
of the door, under the weather strip. There is also rust under the trunk
lid.
Should have many good years left on it. I'll be looking for one like it
in the spring for my son to buy.
Feel free to email me any questions you may have. I've done most of the
work on my car myself. bob

This car has a few common problems that are quite easily - and relatively
cheaply fixed - if you are unlucky enough to encouter them. I believe
others have commented on them in here and are much more knowledgable than I
on this matter. BUT, having owned a '92 Honda Accord LX auto that had over
250,000 miles when I gave it to my sister I can do nothing but highly
recommend this vehicle. My sister still uses it as a daily driver. Check
to make sure it was well maintained and you should be good to go.

Now, I am not exactly proud of this, but this will give you a good idea of
the reliability. When I got my '92 Accord I was a fairly new driver and I
absolutely abused this car to no end (I did maintain it well though). I
would constantly red line it, and brake hard. To slow down, I would force
the auto tranny to downshift by popping it into 3rd, 2nd, or even 1st gear,
AND/OR I would pull the handbrake slightly if I just wanted to slow down
enough to get off the person's rear end I was following. Never had any
engine / tranny / diff problems. The front-end, hood, and right rear door
were replaced all due to accidents that were not my fault (each time,
someone backed into me...one of them was a massive truck when the car was
fairly new that I was certain did some mechanical damage due to the impact
on the front end, this was not the case 200,000+ miles later though).

A friend of mine purchased a '92 Accord LX auto that was manufactured about
3 months before mine about 5 years ago. He has greatly abused his car as
well (I have ridden with him many times). In fact, we used to race them all
the time just to see who's was faster (his always beat mine by about 2
inches). He now has over 250,000 miles on it as well.

I have owned a '92 Accord and I regretted giving it to my sister (I had to
because it was a royal pain to take it on my move from Canada to the USA).
I just purchased a brand new '03 Accord EX 4cyl auto and love it, but I am
ALWAYS on the lookout for a good condition '92 Accord LX (or other years of
that same design) in my area. If I find one I WILL buy it.

If it was taken care of, 88K (hopefully not rolled back) is just startin' to
get broken in. As with any used car, my advise is have it inspected before
you buy. IMHO $5,000 is a little steep. I assume it is an EX model?
Depending on condition, what my mechanic says, and location.

My 92 Accord 2 door Coup 5 sp EX is in excellent condition with 238,000
miles!!!! I also have a 91 Accord wagen auto LX with only 142,000 miles.
Would I hesitate to buy another? NO! Best cars I've ever owned, PERIOD!

I have to agree about the design and quality of this style Accord.
I have a '91 DX 5spd and have to say it's the best car I've ever
owned. To put it more in perspective I also have a '01 Acura CL type
S and still love to drive the Accord. The CLS is much faster, better
handling and has tons of very functional goodies compared to the
Accord DX.
The Accord however has very precise controls, which made me buy it
new in '91. It has 98,000 miles on it now and does not burn or leak
any oil. It doesn't have any rust on it but have to think it will be
shortly that it will appear. It's been extremely dependable and cheap
to keep.
If I could have only bought the same car again new I could have
saved almost $20,000 instead of buying the CLS. Well may be more like
$15,000 with 10 years of inflation. The CLS is a great car but I
still love the '91 Accord DX.

I just paid $2850 for one with 100,000 on it that is ridiculously,
eye-popping clean. I think I did well. Average price I have seen for
an 88,000 mile clean car is $3500-$4000. I shopped my ass off, so I
know whereof I speak. I looked at close to 75 cars.

They are great cars. At that price, the timing belt should have been
done very recently and the car should be dead mint. I mean showroom.
