Buying a used Honda Accord is a great option for you if you are looking to get a reliable used car. Honda Accords have been made since the 1970s, and they are still out there on the road, all while still being a top seller in its class. The Accord is all about reliability, and that is what makes them an attractive used car. Many people currently are driving Honda Accords from the late 1980s and early 1990s still. They get decent gas mileage for used cars, but have long longevity. The early models up until 1989 were classified as compact cars, and were then made into a mid size sedan. From 2008 and on, they are now full-size sedans. They are now in their eight generation of models. It started out as a hatchback vehicle with little power. The first models came with only around 75 horsepower, but every new design that came about, increased the horsepower. The engines have progressively gotten better, but also more fuel efficient. For every different generation model, there were usually five different engines you could pick, ranging in horsepower. If you are looking to buy a used Honda Accord, the most popular, and cost efficient models would be the seventh generation models from 2003 to 2008. That is when the Accord had a more modern design change, increasing fuel economy, and you can now get them for very low prices.
