Anyone have any experience with this car? I'm looking at a DX thats auto and carb'd. 100k on odo. Is it hard to work on?
I have great memories of 86-89 Accords. My best friend's mother had a gold/beige sedan growing up, and I remember always being blown away by the popup headlights and the automatic seatbelts.
Another '89 LX-i owner here... and I still drive it. Pic related, I think the car is immortal.
Mine's a coupe with the 5-speed. Wish it was a hatch, but oh well.
Nope, LX-i is one of the fuel-injected versions. I'm not sure how much it affects longevity. It seems to be about an even split of carb/FI of the 3rd gen Accords I see on the street. That said, the 3rd gens are considerably rarer than the 4th gens.
As good as my car is, I'd not want an automatic version. It's the kind of underpowered that really needs a stick to be comfortable. I've not driven an auto of this exact car, but other old Hondas I've driven with automatics have been really sluggish and boring to drive.
Devac is def the way to go, much more simple and a lot more room in the bay once all that shit is out
Do a devac immediately and the rest is not too bad
