Honda Accord - A brief history:

In 1976, having enjoyed great success with the Civic, the Honda Accord Hatchback was introduced. Honda chose the name Accord to reflect "Honda's desire for accord and harmony between people, society and the automobile.” The Accord has achieved considerable success, especially in the USA, where it was the best-selling Japanese car for 15 years (1982-97), and became the first Japanese-branded vehicle to be manufactured in the US. By 1986, with the introduction of the third generation Accord, Honda had hit the big time. The Accord had gained the respect that only comes from two successful generations of sales. The 1986 model was larger than its predecessor yet again, but it was also sportier-looking – and acting. By this time the hatchback had been phased out in favor of a sportier 2-door coupe.

 

In 1997 - A+ Japanese Auto Repair emerges as the Bay Area's Honda Accord Experts:

By 1998 the Accord had already become an icon in the midsized sedan market. A new body, engine, and chassis were featured for both coupe and sedan, with the four-door Accord riding on a slightly longer wheelbase than its two-door counterpart. The coupe was designed, developed, and engineered by Honda’s American Research and Development department, and represented the most dramatic departure from the Accord yet.

Honda Accord - Different Models:

The Accord is available with different trim packages. The DX is the base model.
The LX gives you even more equipment than the DX. The EX is the top trim level with things like leather interior, power everything, sunroof, and nicer wheels.

Honda Accord - Reliability:

Numerous road tests, past and present, rate the Accord as one of the world's most reliable vehicles, and with overall gas mileage in the mid- to high- twenties, its cost-per-mile is among the industry’s lowest. The frequency and severity of repairs, already lower than most, is minimized by a proper service schedule.
