1991 HONDA ACCORD LX

OUR TEN-YEAR ODYSSEY SEARCHING FOR A DAILY DRIVER, part 1

In April, 2009 we bought this nice Honda for a daily driver. We were actually looking for a Buick Century, but happened on this nice Honda with only 81,000 miles for only $1,200. It had a 4-cylinder engine and not the V-6 that I was looking for, but I just couldn't resist!











After a year of trouble-free service, the Honda developed a valve tap. I removed the valve cover to adjust the tappets and found that the threads were stripped on one of the valve stems. I really wanted a V6 engine, so I offered the Honda on Craigslist "as is" for what we paid a year earlier. Within an hour, we got over 20 calls for the car! When we awoke at 6:00 the next morning, a couple from Pennsylvania was parked in our driveway with cash in his hand! I began looking for a nice V-6 Buick Century, but once again, wound up buying a different car.
