Default 1996 Accord

1996 Accord LX was given to my wife and I. Only has 120k on it so it should last for years and years to come. Very minimal rust, and body is in good shape.

Cheers!

Welcome. Sounds like you've gotten a nice low mileage car. If you haven't, or don't know when, I'd change the timing belt. They're supposed to be done at 100K miles (or 7 years), then every 60K miles or 6 years. These cars use an "interference" engine, and the timing belt is a critical component. I'd also do the water pump at the same time, because the pump runs off the timing belt.
I hope this helps, and all 3 of my Accords have over 200K on them.
