How Many Of You Drive A Honda...?

Sat Sep 13, 2003 10:39 am


How many of you here drive a Honda, and if so, what year and model...

I drive a 2000 Honda Accord EX, but will buy either a Honda Accord Type R engine and do a swap with my car or I will go to Great Britain and purchase a new Honda Accord (Acura TSX bodystyle)
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

My car is Honda Civic EX 1997. It's great car! It runs very well! Right now, it's 63,000 miles without any problem! I love to drive Honda for many years. My first was Honda civic hatchback 1978, Honda CRX-HF 87, Honda CRX-Si 1990 and now Honda Civic EX 97. I am going to buy next year or two. Probably Honda Civic EX again.

Although I don't drive yet, my family has had like 6 Hondas or Acuras and have loved their quality and reliability. My mom drives a '99 Odyssey (which actually turned out to be a crappy car). My dad drives a '00 Acura 3.2TL. I'm trying to get him to trade it for the '04. Have u seen it? It is HOT-beautiful on the outside, tons of features, 270 horsepower standard..... Big thumbs up

Mom and me have/had the same car 1990 Honda Accord EXi. Mom's was a 2.0 edition while mine's a 2.2 fuel injected one. Mom got rid of hers when it was time to scrap it in 2000. I bought mine last year.. sad to say its been a disappointment.

I do!

I love my Honda.

I drive a 1997 Honda Civic 4 DR with 5 Speed. It has 85,000 miles on it, and runs great. I love getting 350-400 out of a tank of gas.

My one side of the family has been buying/leasing Honda's religiously since 1990. It was my grandparents who started, actually my oma, she said that when it was time to replace her olds, she wanted a Honda, my Papa said that she couldn't get one cause he'd get made fun of down at his business he owned...she got it, both loved it, and he ended up with a coupe a few months later. here is my families list of Honda's. (none of them have had a problem...)

1990 Honda Accord LX 4dr (Leased)
1990 Honda Accord LX 2dr (Leased)
1994 Honda Accord LX 4dr (Leased)
1994 Honda Accord LX 4dr (Leased)
1994 Honda Accord LX 2dr (Owned)
1996 Honda Civic DX Hb (Owned)
1997 Honda Civic DX 4dr (Owned)
1997 Honda Accord LX 4dr (Leased)
1998 Honda Accord LX 4dr (Leased)
1998 Honda Civic LX 4dr (Leased)
1998 Honda Civic LX 4dr (Leased)
1999 Honda CR-V LX 4WD (Owned)
2001 Honda Civic LX 4dr (Leased)
2001 Honda Civic EX 2dr (Leased)
2001 Honda CR-V EX 4WD (Leased)
2001 Honda CR-V LX 4WD (Owned)

Good cars, but you really have to take it to the right people for maintenance, that way they'll last. Under the hood, they're much more complicated (unnecessarily?) than American cars. The Japanese really like to do things their own way... but maybe that works out for the better.

It's not that the Japanese do things their own way, it's that the Americans make cars with ancient technology compared to the Japanese and Europeans.

I drive a 2002 Civic Type R. You lot in the States don't get it for some reason, but it's the Civic Si with a 200bhp engine rather than the 160 bhp you get. It's rather good.

I have a 1998 Accord EX which I bought used from a family member in March of this year for $10,000 with only 8,500 miles on it.

I used to have a 1990 Acura Legend which got passed around my family for 10 years before we sold it with over 135,000 miles on it in 2000.

My sister has a 1998 Acura Integra GS. Mileage I think was around 50,000 when she bought it a year and a half ago for $12,000.

1996 Acura Integra GS-R, with 78,000 miles

It is an excellent car. I love the hatchback, and can get TONS of stuff in it, even stuff my SUV driving friends can't. It's fun and sporty. It has been TOTALLY reliable. Only a couple of very small problems.

I drive a 2003 Honda Pilot EX. I love all 240 horses of it. I took it on the Rubicon last Friday and it did fairly well for what it is. It has 8 inches of ground clearance but lacks skid plates. Anyways, great car and I recommend it to anyone looking at it.

Why drive such a car an ugly hatchback for $21,000? And yes, for 21K if you think thats fast you are a funny person  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

BTW we don't get it because they were re-done as Acura Integra's.

"2002 Acura 3.2TL Type S

Right, almost every manufacturer today uses in some of their models diffrent companies engines. Take for example Saturn and Honda, or Cadillac and BMW.

If you are talking about technologies like VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing Injection for 99% of the users who have no idea what it is) those technologies were first experimented in on the break of last decade by GM, Ford and Volvo.

Used to. When I met my wife-to-be, she had a loaded '85 Honda Accord. Sweeet vehicle, but when we got together, we sold it because the payments were so high. We were dumb back than, and didn't even think about refinanicing it. That car would have lasted us for years.  Sad

LOT767-300ER, the fact that other manufacturers worked on Variable valve timing is neither here nor there, Honda were the first to invent it. The British worked on the atom bomb as well...  Big grin

But I'm no rabid Honda fan. I just get what suits me best at any particular time.

Oh, and there's no limited slip differential on the UK spec Type R, although there is on the JDM model - no traction control either, which is how it should be.

As for the "ricer" comment, it's pretty much meaningless here. I have no intention of souping up any car I own, curiously enough those that do so in the UK do it with Vauxhalls (GM) and Fords. How ironic!

As for speed, well it's quick enough, 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, but to be honest straight line speed is pretty irrelevant (a view Honda seem to share, you have to change into 3rd at 55mph) as most cars of this type will be within a few tenths of each other, it's cornering ability that makes the difference here, and this model has it licked. There are others fractionally better - the Focus RS with a limited slip diff, which is £3000 more for example - but not much. Other downsides, well, VTEC means you have to be in the right gear to prevent bogging down, but you get used to that really.

I suspect that it isn't sent over to the US because of the kind of reaction you've given. Over here big engines and the cornering ability of the Titanic tend not to impress many people in a country full of bends, which is why you never see any true American cars (plus their size of course) and when you do, it is of the Chrysler Neon variety, which doesn't really give much credibility. A curious thing that, you try to break into a new market and send over one of your worst models to do so? Hmmm.

My girlfriend owns a '97 Civic LX 4-dr and an 02' Civic EX coupe. She's into the modified import scene (a la Fast and the Furious) so the LX is strictly a showcar while the newer EX is the daily driver, although it has been modified a good deal. Yes she has them "riced" out but I would say they're rather tastefully done and not like some of the retarded crap you see out on the street. Honda's are good quality cars and she's had no problems with them. However if I had to choose, I'd go with the higher end Accord or something off the Acura line before buying a Civic. But that's just me.
