©2007 Honda accord 1983 via Wieck The 1982 Honda Accord was longer and roomier than its predecessors. Building on the original Accord's solid success, Honda kept its top-selling car on the path of ever-more sophistication and refinement.

The redesigned 1982 models found an even wider audience, and sales continued to climb. But a lingering recession and deep job cuts in the U.S. auto industry fueled a growing antagonism toward Japanese vehicles in some quarters. Critics charged that Honda and other Japanese brands with "dumping" cars, thus stealing sales from American manufacturers and forcing them to layoff workers.

It was in this heated political atmosphere that Honda became the first Japanese automaker to build cars in the U.S. The hot-selling Accord was the logical candidate, and in late 1982 a new "transplant" factory in Marysville, Ohio, began turning out Accord sedans.

This was mainly a business decision, and bold one, with no guarantee of a payoff. But succeed it did, and other Japanese brands soon followed Honda's lead. The auto industry hasn't been the same since. 1982 Honda Accord Though not evident at a glance, the redesigned 1982 Honda Accord was somewhat longer, wider and roomier than previous models.

Wheelbase was stretched nearly three inches to 96.5, and overall length increased about two inches. A three-model lineup returned, and the mechanical package was little changed, though rated horsepower rose by three to 75. Styling was familiar too, but a bit smoother and better resolved. Despite all this, the Accord kept its people-pleasing character.

Honda was just offering more of a good thing. In the process, the Accord became somewhat quieter and smoother riding. It also felt more substantial despite being little heavier. And fuel economy was still top-of-the-class at an honest 26-30 miles per gallon. 1983 Honda Accord Honda began selling its historic U.S.-built Accord sedans this model year.

Hatchback coupes were still imported from Japan, as were some sedans, as it took time for the new Ohio plant to reach full speed. Some pundits expected build quality would suffer, but Consumer Guide and most others discerned little difference in the American Accords. Aside from that, there was but one notable change affecting every 1983 Honda Accord: a four-speed automatic transmission to replace the previous three-speed option.

Honda accord 1983 extra gear allowed cruising at lower rpm to the benefit of fuel economy, aided by a lockup torque-converter clutch that reduced the fuel-wasting internal slippage associated with automatic.

Other manufacturers offered similar transmissions, Detroit included. ©2007 Honda via Wieck Honda really pushed its 1983 Accord hatchback -- and the public responded by buying them up. 1984 Honda Accord Appearance updates, a larger engine and a new luxury-trim sedan made up the 1984 Honda Accord story. All models now carried a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 86 horsepower; a three-barrel carburetor continued. Honda's sporty Prelude coupe was redesigned in 1983 around this same engine, but with dual carburetors and 100 horsepower.

An LX-trim sedan was added with most of the same features as the LX hatchback. Both sedans received a fresh "face." Coupes got a lower hoodline, specific nose styling, revised bumpers, and a hatch lid with integrated spoiler. They also received orange gauge graphics and a firmer suspension with a rear stabilizer bar added. All these changes were intended to give Accord coupes a sportier personality for added market appeal. Speaking of which, Accord sales this year broke into the top-10 ranks for the first time, though it was not be the last.

1985 Honda Accord Closing out the car's second generation, the 1985 Honda Accord lineup gained a spiffier luxury sedan, the SE-i. Future Accord generations would also end with SE (Special Edition) models, though honda accord 1983 even Honda might not have known that in 1985. As on some European cars, the "i" stood for fuel injection, Honda's new port electronic system with a separate squirter for each cylinder. Horsepower checked in at 101, versus an unchanged 86 on other models.

The SE-i replaced the four-door LX, but was even ritzier, with leather upholstery, power-operated glass sunroof, and special exterior trim as exclusive and standard. Other 1985 Accords received only detail trim changes. The second-generation design cemented Accord's reputation as one of the best compact-car buys on the market.

As Consumer Guide noted in 1985: "The front-drive Accord has consistently been highly ranked by our auto staff for its overall refinement, perky performance and neat assembly quality. Our most recent test car was an American made LX sedan that was probably the best-built Accord we've seen to date.

[And] we averaged 27 mpg with manual transmission. Other cars in this size and price range are equal to or close to Accord in equipment and assembly, but none seem to match the smooth, quiet nature of Honda's 1.8-liter engine. It's still at the head of the class for our money." Go to the next page to find out what the third design generation of the Honda Accord had to offer.

The Accord nameplate has been applied to a variety of vehicles worldwide, including coupes, station wagons, hatchbacks and a Honda Crosstour crossover. Since its initiation, Honda has offered several different car body styles and versions of the Accord, and often vehicles marketed under the Accord nameplate concurrently in different regions differ quite substantially.

It debuted in 1976, as a compact hatchback, though this style only lasted through 1989, as the lineup was expanded to include a sedan, coupe, and wagon. By the sixth-generation Accord at the end of the 1990s, it evolved into an intermediate vehicle, with one basic platform but with different bodies and proportions to increase its competitiveness against its rivals in different international markets.

For the eighth-generation Accord released for the North American market in 2007, Honda had again chosen to move the model further upscale and increase its size. [1] This pushed the Accord sedan from the upper limit of what the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines as a mid-size car to just above the lower limit of a honda accord 1983 car, [2] with the coupe still rated as a mid-size car. In 2012, the ninth-generation Accord sedan, with smaller exterior dimensions, was once again classified as a mid-size car at 119 cubic feet (3.4 m 3), falling just shy of the "Large Car" classification.

However, the tenth-generation Accord sedan, with similar exterior dimensions, returned to full-size car status with its combined interior space of 123 cubic feet (3.5 m 3); the coupe was discontinued in 2017. In 1982, the Accord became the first car from a Japanese manufacturer to be produced in the United States when production commenced in Marysville, Ohio at Honda's Marysville Auto Plant.

The Accord has achieved considerable success, honda accord 1983 in the United States, where it was the best-selling Japanese car for sixteen years (1982–97), topping its class in sales in 1991 and 2001, with around ten million vehicles sold.

[3] Numerous road tests, past and present, rate the Accord as one of the world's most reliable vehicles. [4] The Accord has been on the Car and Driver 10Best list a record 36 times. [5] In 1989, the Accord was the first vehicle sold under an import brand to become the best-selling automobile in the United States.

[6] As of 2020, the Accord has sold more than 18 million units.

[8] Honda introduced its N360 minicar, compliant with Kei car specifications for the Japanese market, for the 1967 model year. The car had a transverse-mounted front engine, front-wheel drive (FF) layout, which would be adopted for the later N600 (1969), H1300 (1970) and Civic (1972) models.

[9] Occupying a size niche between minicars and compact sedans, the Civic offered a combination of economy and practicality with its space-efficient design that had immediate appeal.

The Civic gave Honda their first market success competing with manufacturers of standard compact cars, which were the growth segment as sales of minicars plateaued and waned in the early 1970s, and their first major impact in the export market.

[10] Honda's CVCC engine technology, which had been under development since 1970, was added to the Civic in December 1973. It had the advantages of not requiring a catalytic converter or unleaded fuel to meet the emissions requirements of the 1970s and early 1980s. [11] After the well-received launch of the Civic, Honda started on the development of a larger companion model.

Honda's original concept for a larger, quieter, more powerful and comfortable car was a four-door sedan powered by a 2000cc inline-six engine, designated Project 653. [12] Information on that project has been interpreted as designating a V-6 powered competitor to the Ford Mustang, [13] however that appears to be a confused interpretation of the Project 653 design concept.

For reasons including managing development costs, leveraging the technology of their Civic, and ability to adapt production facilities to the new model, Honda changed their focus to building upon the Civic's successful formula in a larger package, designated Project 671.

[12] The body design of the new model was finalized in the fall of 1973, as reported in the December 1975 issue of Motor Trend magazine, [14] which suggests honda accord 1983 work under Project 671 had been advancing in the months prior. However, one account of the timeline reports that mechanical engineering under Project 671 got underway in 1974.

[12] Until production of the new model, intensive engineering efforts were carried out to make the CVCC engine quieter and more suited to higher cruising speeds, to refine the suspension for better ride and handling, to develop a power steering system suitable for a lightweight compact car, and to improve noise damping in the body and frame.

Extensive pre-production testing was performed under a wide variety of conditions, to assure the Accord's suitability for the varied uses an export model would be subjected to. [12] For the new model, Honda chose the name "Accord", reflecting "Honda's desire for accord and harmony between honda accord 1983, society and the automobile." [15] German manufacturer Opel unsuccessfully sued Honda, claiming that the name was too similar to their Rekord. [16] The Accord's final form, with an extended nose and extended coupe cabin with a sloping hatchback rear, was a logical derivation of the stubby hatchback design of the Civic and it provided ample leeway for use of Civic-derived components.

It showed similarity to the Volkswagen Scirocco, which had been introduced in January 1974, leading to speculation that the form of the Accord was copied from the Scirocco. However, the Accord's form had been finalized months prior to the Scirocco's introduction.

Japanese market cars claimed 80 PS (59 kW) JIS (similar to SAE Gross), while European and other export markets received a model without emissions control equipment; it claimed 80 PS (59 kW) as well but according to the stricter DIN norm. It was a platform expansion of the earlier Honda Civic at 4,125 mm (162 in) long. To comply with gradually tightening emission regulations enacted in Japan, the engine was fitted with Honda's CVCC technology.

The Accord sold well due to its moderate size and great fuel economy. It was one of the first Japanese sedans with features like cloth seats, a tachometer, intermittent wipers, and an AM/FM radio as standard equipment.

In 1978 an LX version of the hatchback was added which came with air conditioning, a digital clock, and power steering.

Until the Accord, and the closely related Prelude, power steering had not been available to cars under two liters. [18] Japanese buyers were liable for slightly more annual road tax over the smaller Civic, which had a smaller engine.

On 14 October 1977 (a year later in the U.S. market), a four-door sedan was added to the lineup, and power went to 72 hp (54 kW) when the 1,599 cc (97.6 cu in) [19] EF1 engine was supplemented and in certain markets replaced by the 1,751 cc (106.9 cu in) an EK1 unit, producing 72 hp (54 kW) with the GK-5 5-speed transaxle, or 68 hp (51 kW) with the 2-speed Hondamatic. Technically, the sedan was not changed from the hatchback, and the wheelbase remained the same as well.

This did result in a rather long rear overhang to fit a full-sized trunk. [20] The roof was a bit taller so as to provide more interior comfort, and the Accord Sedan was the first Honda in Japan to be offered with typically Japanese middle-class extras such as ornate hubcaps and lace seat covers.

[21] In the U.S. market, the sedan was available in three colors: Livorno Beige with beige cloth interior, Silver with maroon cloth interior, or dark red with maroon cloth interior. In 1980 the optional two-speed semi-automatic transmission of previous years became a three-speed fully automatic gearbox (a four-speed automatic transaxle was not used in the Accord until the 1983 model year).

The North American versions had slightly redesigned bumper trim. Other changes included new grilles and taillamps and remote mirrors added on the four-door (chrome) and the LX (black plastic) models.

The CVCC badges were deleted, but the CVCC induction system remained. At the same time, California-specification engines received a four-port exhaust valve head and a catalytic converter. This version of the EK1 engine was equivalent to the 1981 49 state High-Altitude engine, with the addition of an air jet controller device that helped maintain the proper mixture at higher altitudes (above 4000 feet).

The horsepower increased from 72 hp (54 kW) for 5-speed cars and 68 hp (51 kW) for automatic cars with the two-port 49-state engine to 75 hp (56 kW), like the 1981-83 versions. In North America, the 1981 model year only brought detail changes such as new fabrics and some new color combinations. [22] Livorno Beige (code No. Y-39) was replaced by Oslo Ivory (No. YR-43). Dark brown was discontinued, as was the bronze metallic. A bit later in 1981, and SE 4-door model was added for the first time, with Novillo leather seats and power windows.

The paint color was NH-77M Glacier Gray with a gray interior. Base model hatchbacks, along with the four-door, LX, and SE four-door, all received the same smaller black plastic remote mirror. The instrument cluster was revised with mostly pictograms which replaced the worded warning lights and gauge markings.

The shifter was redesigned to have a stronger spring to prevent unintentional engagement of reverse, replacing the spring-loaded shift knob of the 1976 to 1980 model year cars. The shift lever was also shortened by a couple of inches, with a larger thread diameter, allowing usage of later Honda shift knobs, including the rectangular knob used on all 1986 and newer Accords.

Designer Yukio Kurosu (1979) [23] Body and chassis Class Compact car Body style 3-door hatchback 4-door sedan Powertrain Engine Interior (post-facelift) Debuted on 22 September 1981, in Japan, Europe, and North America, this generation of the Accord being produced in Japan, also became the first to be built in the United States, at Honda's plant in Marysville, Ohio.

Since its first year in the American market, it also became the best-selling Japanese nameplate in the United States, retaining that position for about 15 years. [25] In Japan, a sister model called the Honda Vigor was launched simultaneously with the new Accord. This allowed Honda to sell the product at different sales channels called Honda Clio, which sold the Accord, and Honda Verno, that sold the Vigor. Modernizing honda accord 1983 interior and exterior, the second-generation Accord was mechanically very similar to the original, using the same 1,751 cc (1.751 L; 106.9 cu in) EK-1 CVCC engine in the Japanese market.

Vehicles with honda accord 1983 manual transmission and the CVCC carburetor earned 13.6 km/L (38 mpg ‑imp; 32 mpg ‑US) based on Japanese Government emissions honda accord 1983 using 10 different modes of scenario standards, and 110 PS (81 kW; 108 bhp), and 23 km/L (65 mpg ‑imp; 54 mpg ‑US) with consistently maintained speeds at 60 km/h. European market cars received the tested 1.6-liter EL1 engine with 80 PS (59 kW; 79 bhp) at 5000 rpm.

[26] This automobile included popular features of the time such as shag carpet, velour cabin trim, and chrome accents. An optional extra on the 1981 Accord was an Electro Gyrocator, the world's first automatic in-car navigation system. [27] Models were available in Silver, Sky Blue, and Beige. The LX hatchback offered a digital clock and slightly higher fuel economy (due to its lighter weight).

In Europe, the Accord was available as a fairly well equipped (for the time) standard version, as well as a very luxurious EX model at a modest upcharge. [26] In the United States, Federal lighting regulations required honda accord 1983 of sealed beam construction and standard size and shape on all vehicles, so Accords in North America were equipped with four rectangular headlamp units rather than the aerodynamic composite replaceable-bulb units used on Accords sold outside North America (note European specification imagery).

Other Automotive lighting variations included amber front and red rear side marker lights and reflectors in North America, and headlamp washers and a red rear fog lamp for European markets. Japanese-market Accords were unique from all other markets in that they offered adjustable ride height control and side-view mirrors installed on the mid-forward fenders. [28] In November 1982, Honda made a fully four-speed automatic available with the 1.8-liter engine, a major improvement over the earlier, three-speed semi-automatic " Hondamatic" transmission.

This quickly filtered through to export markets, where the outdated Hondamatic was soon superseded entirely. The manual five-speed transmission remained unchanged. A new 120 mph speedometer replaced the earlier 88 mph unit. The Special Edition (SE) featured Novillo leather seating, power windows, a power sunroof, and door locks. Gray was added as a color option. A slightly modified EK-2 engine was introduced, replacing the earlier EK-1, albeit still honda accord 1983.

1983 refresh [ edit ] Sedan (facelift, Canada) By 1983, Accords sold in the eastern United States were produced at the new Marysville plant, with quality considered equal to those produced in Japan. In June 1983, for the 1984 model year, the Accord body was restyled with a slightly downward beveled nose and a new series of 12-valve CVCC powerplants. [29] Globally there was a 1.6 (EY) and also the slightly more powerful ES2 1,829 cc (1.829 L; 111.6 cu in), yielding 86 bhp (64 kW) in federal trim.

Honda integrated rear side marker lights and reflectors into the side of the tail light units. European Accords now included a side turn signal repeater just behind each front wheel well. The U.S. requirement for standardized headlamps was rescinded in late 1983, but North American Accords continued to use sealed beams until the fourth-generation models were released in 1989. The LX offered velour upholstery, auto-reverse cassette stereo, honda accord 1983 conditioning, cruise control, power brakes, power steering, power windows and power door locks (sedan only), a digital clock, roof pillar antenna, along with thick black belt moldings, integrated bumpers and flush plastic mock-alloy style wheels covers that resembled the trend-setting Audi 5000.

Supplies were tight, as in the Eastern states, the wait was months for a Graphite Gray sedan, a then-popular color. The LX hatchback was the only 1984 version of the Accord to include dual side-view mirrors.

[ citation needed] The 1983 Accord SE Sedan carried over features of the 1981 SE Sedan, including leather interior, power windows, power antenna, and aluminum alloy wheels. Some new features included a 7-band graphic equalizer, power booster and Dolby music sensor for the AM/FM cassette stereo system, and a power glass moonroof. Only one color was offered in the SE trim: Dove Gray. The 1984 sedan was available in four exterior colors, Greek White and three metallic options: Columbus Gray, Regency Red (burgundy), and Stratos Blue (steel).

The regular hatchback was available in Greek White, Dominican Red, and the metallic Stratos Blue. The 1984 LX hatchback came in three metallic colors only: Graphite Gray, Regency Red, and Copper Brown.

It was one of the first Japanese engineered vehicles to offer computer controlled, fuel-injection with one injector per cylinder, also known as multiple port fuel injection. This arrived on 24 May 1984 on the ES series 1.8 L engine, and was known as Honda's Programmed Fuel Injection, or PGM-FI.

[30] This option was not offered until 1985 in the United States market. Vehicles with PGM-FI (ES3 series engine) earned 13.2 km/L (37 mpg ‑imp; 31 mpg ‑US) based on Japanese Government emissions tests using 10 different modes of scenario standards, with 130 PS (95.6 kW; 128.2 bhp), and 22 km/L (62 mpg ‑imp; 52 mpg ‑US) with consistently maintained speeds at 60 km/h (37.3 mph).

[31] In 1985, the Special Edition returned as the SE-i, capitalizing on the final year of the second generation's production. A fuel-injected, 101 bhp (75 kW) [32] non-CVCC ES3 engine was exclusive to this model.

The moniker, SE-i, was adapted from the SE trim, but included the "-i" to signify the higher trim level's fuel-injected engine. This 12-valve, 1,829 cc (1.829 L; 111.6 cu in) engine was the first non-CVCC engine used in an Accord and was the same basic engine design used by Honda until 1989.

Like the previous SE trim in 1983, the SE-i featured Novillo leather seating, power moonroof, bronze-tinted glass, a premium sound system with cassette, and 13-inch alloy wheels.

The luxury equipment features on the SE-i paralleled the same features offered on the Honda Vigor VTL-i, which was only sold in Japan. Two colors were offered: Graphite Gray Metallic and Barley Brown Metallic.

Available options differed from market to market. The 1.8-liter engine, updated four-speed automatic transmission, and 'EX' trim level options were first made available in New Zealand during the 1984 model year refresh alongside the 1.6-liter 'LX' model.

Japan generally received more options earlier than the rest of the world. In 1981, the Accord offered an adjustable ride height air suspension in the Japanese market. From 1983 in Japan and 1984 in Europe, the second-generation Accord was available with anti-lock brakes (called ALB) as an option. This braking system was the first time that an Accord used four-wheel disc brakes. Fuel injection became available in 1984 in the Japanese market with the earlier introduction of the ES3 engine in the SE-i.

Models took a year to arrive in North American and European markets with less stringent emissions laws continuing, using carburetors throughout second-generation production.

It had a very striking exterior design styled by Toshi Oshika in 1983, that resonated well with buyers internationally. One notable feature was the hidden honda accord 1983. Because this generation was also sold as the Honda Vigor, the Accord received the hidden headlamps. Honda's Japanese dealership channel called Honda Verno all had styling elements that helped identify products only available at Honda Verno.

As a result, Japanese market Accords had a Honda Verno styling feature but were sold at newly established Japanese dealerships Honda Clio with the all-new, luxury Honda Legend sedan, and international Accords were now visually aligned with the Prelude, the CR-X, and the new Integra. The retractable headlamps of the third generation Accord sedan were in Japan, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, KY region (Arabian countries), and on cars in Taiwan that honda accord 1983 imported from the United States.

In other countries, the Accord sedan had conventional headlamps, including in Japan from July 1987, on " Accord CA", with CA standing for "Continental Accord". Accords in all other bodies (hatchback, AeroDeck, coupe) had only retractable headlamps worldwide.

At its introduction in 1985, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award. [33] The third-generation Accord became the first Honda to employ double wishbones at both the front and rear ends. While more expensive than competitors' MacPherson strut systems, this setup provided better stability and sharper handling for the vehicle. All had front sway bars and upper models had rear sway bars as well. Brakes were either small all-wheel discs with twin-piston honda accord 1983 (only available on the Japanese-market 2.0-Si model), larger all-wheel discs with single-piston calipers or a front disc/rear drum system.

ABS was available as an option on the 4-wheel disc brake models, though not in North America. Base model Accords rode on 13-inch steel wheels with hubcaps with more expensive models having the option of 14-inch alloy wheels. The Accord's honda accord 1983 engines varied depending on its market: Japan received the A18A, A20A, B18A, B20A and A20A3 (US imported cars); Europe received the A16A1, A20A1, A20A2, A20A3, A20A4, B20A2, and B20A8; Australia and New Zealand received A20A2 and A20A4; other regions received A20A2 and/or A16A1; while United States, Canada and Taiwan (US imported cars) received the A20A1 and A20A3.

On Accord 1986 model year engine block was marked as BS and BT in the United States, BS1, and BT1 in Canada, these cars had chassis code BA. Since 1987 the engine block in Indonesia was marked as NA instead of A20A2. The engine block in Thailand was marked as A. The Accord's trim levels ranged from spartan to luxurious. In the Japanese home market, the Accord was available with a full power package, heated mirrors (optional), a digital instrument cluster (optional), sunroof (optional), cruise control, and climate control (which was also optional).

Some North European export models also had heated front seats and headlight washers. North American and Australian Accords were not available with many of these options, particularly in the US because Honda was seen as a builder of economy cars, and not to cannibalize sales from the recently introduced (1986) Acura line.

Throughout the different markets, in addition to the sedan model, the Accord was available with different body styles which included a three-door honda accord 1983, a three-door shooting-brake called Accord AeroDeck, and a two-door coupe which was added in 1987 for the 1988 model year. The coupe, which was built exclusively in Honda's Marysville, Ohio factory, was "reverse exported" back to Japan where it was known as the US-coupe CA6. In 1989, the last year of production for the third generation, the SE-i trim returned again to the American market in sedan and coupe models.

Standard features in the SE-i included leather-trimmed seats and door panel inserts, alloy wheels, power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power moonroof (sedan only), dual-outlet exhaust, dual body-colored power mirrors, and a Bose audio system with steering wheel-mounted controls. Additional standard features included cruise control, fold-down rear seat backs, adjustable steering column, quartz digital clock, remote trunk release, rear window defroster and intermittent wipers.

honda accord 1983

Two color combinations were available for the sedan: Charcoal Granite Metallic with gray leather interior trim or Tuscany Taupe Metallic with beige leather interior trim. For the coupe, two different color combinations were available: Asturias Gray Metallic with gray leather interior trim and Brittany Blue-Green Metallic with beige leather interior trim.

Accord AeroDeck The third-generation Accord was sold honda accord 1983 Japan, Europe, and New Zealand as a three-door hatchback with a flat roof over the rear seats, known in Europe as a shooting-brake. The body style of a flat roof hatchback was also used on the third-generation Honda Civic (third generation) subcompact, the second-generation Honda City supermini and the first-generation Honda Today kei car. The Honda CR-X was the only three-door hatchback that adopted a fastback, sloping rear hatch " kammback" appearance, demonstrating a performance car appearance identified with Honda accord 1983 Verno products during the mid-1980s.

In North America, the Accord coupe and hatchback models were offered instead. The "AeroDeck" name was reused on the Honda Civic 5-door station wagon, sold in the UK from 1996 to 2000. In parts of Continental Europe, the Accord five-door station wagon was also called the Accord AeroDeck from 1990 until 2008, when the name of the station wagon was renamed the "Accord Tourer".

[34] The AeroDeck was only available in Japan at Honda Clio dealerships as a variation of the Accord. The cargo handling abilities of the AeroDeck were ceded to the fourth-generation Accord station wagon in 1990.

The Honda accord 1983 was unique to the Accord model line, as the AeroDeck was not available as a Honda Vigor, as the Accord and Vigor were mechanically identical. The AeroDeck returned an aerodynamic value of .34, and the 2,600 mm (102.4 in) wheelbase returned a spacious interior for both front and rear passengers, on par with a mid-size sedan.

Unfortunately, the appearance was not well received in Japan, as the introduction of the Accord Coupe was more well-liked. The appearance was more popular in the United Kingdom. The AeroDeck was equipped with a four-wheel double wishbone suspension, which gave both a comfortable ride and cornering performance. In addition, speed-sensitive power steering is included, which gives the car easy turning assistance at speeds below 40 kilometres per hour (25 mph) during operation, such as parallel parking.

Note that the top model in Japan "2.0Si" is to 4w-ALB (4-wheel ABS) is standard equipment (with an option to upgrade in other trim packages). Visibility from the driver's seat and the passenger seat was better due to the lower instrument panel design of the front window and a large windshield. And switches are arranged efficiently and at the time was the driving position can be fine-tuned adjustments.

Because of the shape of the vehicle and the flat roof that continued to the rear of the vehicle, opening the rear hatch had some drawbacks in low clearance environments. The lower part of the hatch was not like one used on a station wagon that went all the way down to the rear bumper, so loading cargo into the back wasn't as convenient as a conventional station wagon with a one-piece hatchback.

The rear hatch also wrapped into the rear roof, similar to a gull wing door so that the rear glass was in two pieces, one for the back window, and another part on the rear roof. When open, the hatch rose above the roof at a right angle, providing additional overhead clearance when the hatch was open. Moreover, because of the emphasis on aiding rear-seat passenger entry, a longer front door was installed, and because power windows were not installed on the lower trim packages "LX", "LX-S" and as such, the window regulator opening felt heavy.

Although much larger than its predecessor, the sedan's styling was evolutionary, featuring the same low-slung design and wraparound rear window as the third-generation Accord. For the first time, a 3-door hatchback was no longer available internationally. This was one of the first U.S. production cars to feature optic reflectors with completely clear lenses on the headlamps. [36] The styling reflected influences from the flagship Honda Legend (sold in North America as an Acura), as Japanese Accords were now sold at Honda Clio dealerships, where the Legend, and the Honda Inspire, were sold.

The growing popularity of the Accord internationally was evident in the ever-increasing dimensions, which now matched almost exactly with the first-generation Legend introduced in 1985.

For this fourth-generation Accord, Honda made significant engineering design improvements. All Accords sold in North America came with a completely new all-aluminum 2.2-liter 16-valve electronic fuel-injected engine standard, replacing the previous 2.0-liter 12-valve model from the past generation.

Also noteworthy, all Accords equipped with automatic transmissions used an electronically controlled rear engine mount to reduce low-frequency noise and vibration. The mount contained two fluid-filled chambers separated by a computer-controlled valve. At low engine speeds, fluid is routed through the valve damping vibration. Above 850 rpm, fluid is routed around the valve making the engine mount stiffer. In the U.S., the LX-i and SE-i designations were dropped, being replaced with the DX, LX, and EX trim levels.

The Canadian Accord trim levels varied slightly from the U.S. models with LX, EX, and EX-R roughly corresponding to the American DX, LX, and EX, respectively. Fourth-generation Japanese-assembled EXi Accords sold in Australia offered the same 4-wheel steering technology as was available optionally on the U.S. Honda Prelude, but was not included on the New Zealand-assembled versions.

The four-wheel steering system was also available on the Accord's Japanese platform-mate, called the Honda Ascot FTBi. U.S. Accord Coupes were available in the same DX, LX and EX trims as the U.S. Accord Sedan (LX, EX, and EX-R in Canada). A 125-horsepower (93 kW) 4-cylinder engine was offered in the DX and LX models (F22A1), while the 1990 and 1991 model year EX received a 130 hp (97 kW) version (F22A4).

Cruise control was dropped from the DX sedan, with air conditioning remaining a dealer-installed option. The LX kept the same features as the previous generation including air conditioning, power windows, door locks, and mirrors.

The 90–91 EX added 5 horsepower due to a different exhaust manifold design, slightly larger exhaust piping, and a twin outlet muffler. 15-inch machined aluminum-alloy wheels, sunroof, upgraded upholstery, rear stabilizer bar, and a high-power 4-speaker stereo cassette were standard on all EX models. Some models though rare were special ordered with an anti-lock braking system (at that time abbreviated as ALB, now all automakers refer to it as ABS). A redesigned manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch was standard equipment in all trims while an all-new electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission was optional for all models.

Some new dealer-installed accessories were now offered including a single-disc in-dash CD player or trunk-mounted 6-disc CD changer, stereo equalizer, fog lights, security system, rear wing spoiler, trunk lip spoiler, luggage rack, full and half nose mask, center armrest, window visors, sunroof visor, car cover, and a cockpit cover.

Because of tightening auto safety regulations from the NHTSA, all 1990 and 1991 model year Accords sold in the United States came equipped with motorized shoulder belts for front passengers to comply with passive restraint mandates. These semi-automatic restraints were a two-component system; a motorized shoulder belt along with a non-integrated and manually operated seatbelt.

Honda accord 1983 shoulder belts automatically raced around each window frame encircling both the driver and front-seat passenger whenever the front door closed. The process reversed to release them when opened.

The lap belts, however, still required manual fastening. Honda of America badge, installed on the "C" pillar of exported cars In early 1990 for the 1991 model year, Honda unveiled the Accord wagon, to be manufactured at the Marysville, Ohio plant.

Production began in late November, 1990. [37] The Ohio plant exported right-hand drive wagons and coupes to Europe and Japan. In Europe, the station wagon was called the "Aerodeck" in reference to the 1985–1989 three-door vehicle. All station wagons sold outside the United States were affixed with a small badge on the "C" pillar denoting the vehicle was built at the Ohio facility. European and Japanese vehicles had options not available within the U.S. including automatic climate control systems, power seats, and several other minor features.

The Accord Wagons were available from November 1990, only in LX and EX trim in North America or just 2.2i in Japan. They had larger front brakes to compensate for the added weight and unlike other U.S. Accords, including a driver's side airbag as standard equipment.

Other than a retractable tonneau cover in the rear cargo area and keyless entry on EX models, the wagons were equipped the same as their coupe and sedan counterparts. [38] Return of the SE (1991) [ edit ] Honda reintroduced the SE (previously SE-i) sedan for 1991.

It returned to the lineup without the traditional Bose high powered audio system but with an AM/FM stereo cassette 4x20 watt EX audio system; leather-trimmed steering wheel, leather seats and door panels, honda accord 1983 fuel-injected 140 hp (104 kW) engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, and 4-Wheel disc brakes w/ ABS as standard equipment.

For the first time, a manual transmission was not offered in the SE. Two colors were available: Solaris Silver Metallic with Graphite Black interior and Brittany Blue Metallic with Ivory interior. Unlike previous editions, the 1991 SE was not equipped with uniquely styled alloy wheels but instead carried the EX model wheels.

Update (1992–1993) [ edit ] Accords received a minor facelift in 1991 for the 1992 model year. The SE trim was dropped again but left behind its 140 hp (104 kW) F22A6 engine for use in the EX models. This engine added 15 hp over the DX and LX trims and 10 hp over the 90–91 EX trim due to a further revised exhaust system. The system used the same EX-SE twin outlet muffler, a revised air intake tract, a revised camshaft, and a revised intake manifold using IAB butterfly valves which open at 4600 rpm to increase air intake breathing at high rpm.

honda accord 1983

It was similar in design to the 92–96 Prelude Si and VTEC models. For the 1992 and 1993 model years, the motorized shoulder belt system was replaced with a standard driver-side airbag and conventional shoulder/seatbelt arrangement for all but the center rear passenger.

Anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes became standard on the EX. The front and rear facias received a more rounded and updated look. Coupe and sedan models received a new grille, new headlamps, amber parking lights, slightly thinner body side molding, updated wheel designs and for the first time, the EX coupe used wheels different from the EX sedan.

The sedans received restyled shortened taillamps with an inverted amber turn signal and backup light positions. The wagon taillamps though still resembled those from the 1990–1991 Accord. The US-market coupe used the new revised inverted positioning of the signal and backup lights, but honda accord 1983 shape of the taillamps still resembled those of the 90–91 models.

EX trim levels included a radio anti-theft function to deter stereo theft. A front driver's seat armrest was now standard on LX and EX models.

Some dealer-installed accessories were dropped including the luggage rack, trunk-lip spoiler, and cockpit cover. A gold finish kit was added. • F22A engine 10th Anniversary Edition and return of the SE (1993) [ edit ] In 1992, Honda introduced the 10th Anniversary Edition sedan to commemorate the 10th year of U.S.

Accord production. The 10th Anniversary Edition was based on the Accord LX sedan but came equipped with several features not available in the LX trim. The upgrades included ABS, 4-wheel disc brakes, 15" EX coupe six-spoke alloy wheels, body-colored side moldings, chin spoiler, and standard automatic transmission. Three colors were offered for the 10th Anniversary Edition: Frost White, Granada Black Pearl, and Arcadia Green Pearl.

The 10th Anniversary models also included the same premium seat fabric found in EX models. The Frost White and Arcadia Green cars were paired with the same interior color as their LX/EX counterparts, Blue and Ivory, respectively.

The Granada Black cars were paired with Gray interior, while the Granada Black EX had an Ivory interior. The SE returned in late 1992 as both a sedan and for the first time since the 1989 SE-i, as a coupe. The SE sedan featured standard dual front airbags; the first Accord to do so. An 8-button, 4-speaker Honda-Bose audio system, automatic transmission, leather trim, body-colored bumper, and body side moldings were standard.

The SE coupe included a factory rear wing spoiler which differed slightly in design from the already available dealer-installed accessory rear wing spoiler. In Canada, honda accord 1983 SE came with heated front seats and heated side-view mirrors.

Both the sedan and coupe received distinctive 15-inch alloy honda accord 1983 as well. All SE sedans during 1990–1991 (1991 MY) and 1992–1993 (1993 MY) were manufactured in Japan, while all SE coupes were produced in the U.S. The 1993 MY sedan was available in two colors: Cashmere Silver Metallic and Geneva Green Pearl, both with Ivory interior.

The coupe was offered with two colors as well: Cashmere Silver Metallic and Atlantis Blue Pearl, both again with Ivory interior. 1993 would be the swan song for the SE as exclusive, high content, limited edition Accord model.

Later generations would use a "Special Edition" designation rather than the previously used "SE" designation. These models were a combination of an Accord LX with several EX features similar to the 1993 10th Anniversary Edition LX. At the honda accord 1983 of the model life of the CB Accord, a "pillared hardtop" model called the Honda Ascot Innova was launched in Japan, based on the CB Accord chassis, but with a different, much more modern-styled body, taking cues from the 1992 Honda Prelude.

Japan-spec series CB Honda Ascot The fourth-generation Accord spawned a sister model in 1989, called the Honda Ascot which, while mechanically identical to the Accord, featured unique sedan bodywork, although it bore a resemblance to the Accord. The Ascot was sold through the Honda Primo network in Japan while the Accord was distributed through the Honda Clio network.

1989 Inspire Unlike previous generations of the Honda Vigor, which were simply upmarket versions of the Accord, honda accord 1983 third generation 'CB5' model was spun off as a model in its own right and was based on a different platform which featured a longitudinal engine layout compared to the transverse set-up of the Accord. A sister model to the Vigor, the Honda Inspire, was also unveiled in 1989 and, bar a different front grille, front and rear lights, and bumpers, sported identical bodywork.

The Vigor was available in the United States and Canada under the Acura brand. Fifth generation (1993) [ edit ] For the first time in the model's history, Honda developed two distinct versions of the Accord when the fifth-generation model was launched in the Fall of 1993; one version for the European market and one for the North American and Japanese market. Honda and the Rover Group created the European Accord and the Rover 600, a reflection of the past success they had with the Honda Legend and the Rover 800.

This generation Accord was also sold in Japan as the Isuzu Aska, while some Isuzu products were sold as Honda products there also. At its introduction in 1993, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award for the second time.

Larger than its predecessor, primarily to better suit the requirements of the North American market, the new model grew in width but shrunk in length, leaving it classified as a mid-size car in North Honda accord 1983. It thus became too wide to fit within the favorable tax bracket in Japan, where its role was to be partially taken over by the slightly narrower second-generation Honda Ascot (sold at Honda Primo Japanese dealerships) and Honda Rafaga (sold at Honda Verno).

Previous generations of the Accord sold in Japan were limited to a width dimension of 1,695 mm (67 in) while international models were slightly wider, however, this generation no longer complied. The engines offered with the Accord also exceeded the maximum limit of 2000cc to remain in the favorable "compact" honda accord 1983 bracket.

The installation of a 2.0-liter engine in Japanese models made buyers liable for more annual road tax over the smaller 1.8-liter engine, which affected sales. Development began in September 1989, along with the design process in June 1990.

The final design was selected by an early date of 18 December 1990 and frozen by mid-1991. Design inconsistencies in early 1992, caused several alterations to be made honda accord 1983 April 1992, when a secondary design freeze took place, ahead of scheduled 1993 honda accord 1983.

Design patents were later filed in the United States on 16 December 1992 for the "CD". Production later began at Marysville assembly on 24 August 1993. [40] [41] Honda of Japan marketed four different size engines in the Japanese-spec Accord sedan: 1.8, 2.0, 2.2 VTEC and 2.2 DOHC VTEC. The Japanese-spec Accord models were marketed as the following: EF, EX, 2.0EX, 2.0EXL, 2.2VTE, 2.2VTL, 2.2VTS and SiR. All Accord versions were sold at Honda Clio locations in Japan. The fifth-generation Accord became the first Accord to be built and sold in the Philippines.

[42] The DX, LX and EX models remained the American trim lines, while Canada retained the LX, Honda accord 1983 and EX-R. The 5-speed manual transmission remained mostly unchanged, while the 4-speed automatic noted for its hard shifts, now included Honda's "Grade-Logic" shift program, which would prevent "gear-hunting" by holding the current gear while driving on a sloped incline.

All Accord models received a more ergonomic interior with standard safety features such as dual airbags and reinforced side-impact beams. Exclusive to the EX was the F22B1 SOHC VTEC version of previous-generation 2.2-liter 4-cylinder (making 145 hp (108 kW) up from 140 hp (104 kW) on the previous generation EX), anti-lock brakes (now an option for the LX), 4-wheel disc brakes, 15-inch alloy wheels, and a rear stabilizer bar.

Leather was an option in the EX trim with leather-equipped models now being referred to as EX-L. DX and LX models came equipped similarly to the previous generation and were fitted with a revised version of the previous generation's 2.2-liter non-VTEC 4-cylinder engine. This F22B2 engine was rated at 130 hp (97 kW) up from 125 hp (93 kW) the previous generation. The Accord was again named Motor Trend Import Car of the Year for 1994.

The Accord coupe as in the previous generation looked almost exactly like the sedan and was the last generation of the Accord to offer a wagon variant in North America until the introduction of the Accord Crosstour in 2009.

In 1994, the 1995 Accord debuted a V6 engine, the 2.7 L C27 borrowed from the first-generation Acura Legend, in the U.S. market. The V6 was offered in both the LX and EX versions of the sedan, LX models being referred to as LX-V6 and EX models as EX-V6. EX-V6 models came equipped similarly to the EX-L with leather seats being the only option in the EX-V6. The addition of the taller C27 engine required substantial alterations to the CD platform, with V6 models sporting a redesigned engine layout, taller front fenders, and a different hood than I4 models; however, these differences are difficult to spot without both models parked side by side.

Both versions of the V6 received a dual-outlet exhaust, a 4-speed automatic transmission, 15-inch machined aluminum-alloy wheels on the EX-V6, and 15-inch steel wheels with full covers on the LX-V6, and a slightly updated front grille (which would be later used in all 96–97 Accords). The Accord saw very few other changes for 1995 with the exception of a few different exterior and interior color combinations.

In 1995, the Accord underwent the usual mid-generation facelift for 1996. More rounded bumpers, a slightly modified front fascia (which was originally exclusive in the V6 models in 1995) with new signal lights and rear taillamps gave the Accord a softer look. All Hondas now complied with the federal government's requirement of OBD II engine diagnostics though all three engine choices remained the same.

In order to increase the Accord's competitiveness against its rivals in different international markets, Honda CEO Nobuhiko Kawamoto decided on one basic platform for the sixth-generation Accord, but with different bodies and proportions for local markets. In the U.S., the 1996 model lineup included the 25th Honda accord 1983 Edition, a model positioned between the DX and LX. The Special Edition trim package was introduced. For the 1997 model year, Honda released the "Special Edition" version of the Accord (not to be confused with the SE).

It was offered in three colors: Heather Mist Metallic, Honda accord 1983 Marino Red, and Dark Currant Pearl. The Special Edition received a factory-installed security system with keyless entry, single-disc CD player, body-colored side molding, distinctive alloy wheels, and a sunroof.

It was offered in automatic transmission only and was fitted with the same engine as the LX. Acclaimed for its handling, the 1996 Accord has been known [ by whom?] as one of the best-handling Japanese midsized sedans of all time, posting impressive lateral g figures of up to .89 g's. [ citation needed] In New Zealand, the fifth-generation Accord was assembled at Honda's manufacturing site in Nelson and was honda accord 1983 in March 1994.

It was available in LXi, EXi and EXi-S trim levels. A facelift was released in December 1995, which coincided with the release of VTEC engines in the upper-spec models. Trim levels were LXi, VTi, and VTi-S. These were the first NZ-market Accords to have airbags – two in the VTi-S, one in the VTi.

U.S.- and Japan-built coupe and wagon models of this generation were shipped to Europe with both left and right-hand-drive but there was no V6 option. This generation of the Accord is one of the most frequently stolen cars in the U.S. [43] Honda Accord SiR [ edit ] 1996 Accord SiR Wagon Honda of Japan produced three high-performance models of the Accord for the Japanese domestic market referred to as the SiR, which was available for sale at Honda Clio dealerships in Japan.

The sports car approach to the Accord SiR was aimed at aligning the Accord with the Honda Verno sports sedan that replaced the Vigor, called the Honda Saber a platform-mate shared with the Honda Inspire.

The compact sedan role the Accord previously filled was now relegated to the Honda Rafaga and Ascot. The Accord SiR models came equipped with the Japan-spec H22A DOHC VTEC engine instead of the F22B1 SOHC VTEC engine found in the EX.

The Japan-spec H22A DOHC VTEC engine specs were 190 bhp (142 kW; 193 PS) at 6800 rpm; peak torque 152 lb⋅ft (206 N⋅m) at 5500 rpm with a compression ratio of 10.6:1.

The Japan-spec H22A DOHC VTEC engine was similar to the H22A1 engine found in the North American market used in the Prelude DOHC VTEC of the same era. [44] The Japan-built SiR sedan (94–97) was available with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard equipment or an optional "Grade-Logic" four-speed automatic transmission.

honda accord 1983

{INSERTKEYS} [45] The Honda of America-built (HAM) Accord SiR coupe and then the 1997 SiR wagon had the "Grade-Logic" four-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment (5-speed manual transmission were not available for these two models).

It came with cloth sport seats styled similar to the Prelude or optional leather seats, both exclusive to the SiR. The SiR also had some power options found on the Accord EX. The Accord SiR coupe (94–97) and the Accord SiR wagon (1997) were exclusively available for the Japanese market. SiR chassis codes for the sedan were the CD6, the coupe-CD8, and the 1997 wagon-CF2 (production began in September 1996 for the 1997 SiR wagons which lasted for almost one year).

The Accord SiR Coupe and the Accord SiR wagon (1997), which were exclusively built in the United States at Honda's Marysville Ohio plant (HAM) but were marketed for Japan export only for this particular model, was not offered in North America. [46] The Accord SiR Coupe and then Accord SiR wagon was built with the Japan-spec H22A DOHC VTEC powertrains which were shipped from Japan and were installed into the HAM-built Accord SiR models. The 1994–1997 "CD" Accord chassis was designed for the H22A DOHC VTEC powertrain to be installed; because the firewall was curved at the top to allow more space for the tilting backward of the H22A DOHC VTEC engine near the middle of the firewall.

The H22A DOHC VTEC engine was the most powerful inline four-cylinder engine Honda built for the Prelude and the Accord before the 1995 U.S.-spec V6 sedan. The Accord SiR suspension was improved with a stiffer front sway bar (27.2 mm x 4.0 mm), stiffer rear sway bar (16 mm), stiffer front coil springs, and stiffer rear coil springs. Features for the 94–95 Accord SiR models (sedans and coupes) included the following items: cruise control, automatic climate control (Similar to the first-generation Acura CL), Bose stereo system, 7,400 redline tachometer, optional electronic traction control, and optional limited-slip differential for automatic transmission, optional SRS and airbags, factory-installed driving lights, optional factory-installed "pop up" navigation radio head unit, sound insulation liner under front hood, black-housing headlamps, no side molding was available on the Accord SiR sedan, optional rear sunscreen, optional sunroof, and power-retractable outside mirrors.

Features for the 96–97 Accord SiR models (sedans, coupes, and wagons) included the same as above while adding; optional cruise control, rear window wiper on the sedan, optional leather interior, and a colored side molding for the sedan as well.

It was in fact the Japanese-market Honda Ascot Innova which was based on the previous fourth-generation 'CB' Accord. It was the result of a joint effort with the Rover Group that provided Rover with the 600 series.

The exterior was designed by Shigeo Ueno, was finalized in 1989. [48] In 1996, the European Accord received a minor facelift and was given a new front end (new headlamps, bumper, hood and grill) and slightly different taillamps (see images). The styling of the facelifted Accord remained identical to the styling of the Ascot Innova (although the frameless doors were replaced with conventional items) and featured the design language first introduced on the fifth-generation Honda Civic.

The styling of the European Accord differed dramatically from the North American which featured a more conventional sedan styling compared to the European model's low slung, fastback-inspired look which also incorporated rear quarter windows. The facelifted Accord was also equipped with two airbags as standard. However, the European Accord did not spawn a station wagon nor a coupe version. Instead, Honda opted to import the coupe and station wagon (Aerodeck) versions of the global Accord.

The diesel model of the Accord was fitted with the direct injection Rover L-Series diesel engine, as also fitted in the Rover 600. • Rover 600 As part of the tie-up with the Rover Group the European Accord spawned Rover's replacement for the Austin Montego in 1993.

Called the 600, the car shared its platform with the European Accord and, with the exception of the front doors, lower rear doors, and windshield, sported unique styling which dispensed with the rear quarter windows. The interior design of the 600 was very similar to the Accord's however, while the dashboard design was identical.

Main article: Honda Accord (sixth generation) For the sixth generation, Honda split the Accord into three separate models, designed for the Japanese, North American, and European markets. However, the wagon was discontinued in North America while the coupé was discontinued in Japan.

This generation also spawned two distinctively branded performance versions for European and Japanese domestic markets, dubbed Type R, and Euro R, respectively.

Seventh generation Accord (Japan, Europe and Australasia) The seventh generation of the Accord was launched in 2002 (2003 model year in North America), [49] and consists of two separate models; one for the Japanese and European markets, and the other for North America (CM5), with the Japanese and European model being sold in North America as the Acura TSX. However, both were in fact sold in many other markets, fueled by the popular Cog advertisement for the Accord.

Euro R trim continued into this generation as a performance model for the Japanese market, making use of K20 engine producing 220 hp (164 kW), however, European performance model was renamed Type S and used a larger K24 engine tuned to produce 190 hp (142 kW).

Japan and Europe [ edit ] The European and Japanese Accords were integrated on the previous Japanese Accord's chassis, but with a new body. [50] No longer made in Swindon, those Accords were made in Japan, and came in both sedan and station wagon form. At its introduction in 2003, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award for a record third time. In Europe, the car featured a 2.0 i-VTEC with 152 bhp (113 kW), a 2.4 i-VTEC with 187 bhp (139 kW), and an "exceptional" [51] 2.2 i-CDTi turbo diesel N22A1 engine with 140PS and initially 138 bhp (103 kW) and 340 N⋅m (251 lbf⋅ft) of torque, while doing 51 mpg on the EU combined cycle.

This model was sold in certain markets such as Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand as the "Accord Euro" and in North America as the Acura TSX, with a significant distinction being that the TSX featured the interior of the contemporary Honda Inspire instead. [50] Accord Euro R (CL7) [ edit ] The Honda Accord Euro R (CL7) was launched in October 2002, succeeding the previous Euro R (CL1).

A lightened and more sports-focused variant of the Japanese car the Accord Euro R was powered by the K20A 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC engine producing 220 bhp (164 kW; 223 PS) at 8000 rpm and 21 kg⋅m (206 N⋅m; 152 lb⋅ft) at 7000 rpm of torque through the only option of a lightweight 6-speed manual transmission. A similar engine can be found in the JDM Integra Type R (DC5). The Accord Euro-R was available to the Japanese Domestic Market and Europe. Some features that distinguish it are the Recaro seats, the body kit, a MOMO steering wheel, lightweight 17-inch alloys, and a special aluminum gear knob found only in Honda's Type R variants.

North America and Asia Pacific [ edit ] Honda Accord (North America and Asia Pacific) The North American Accord grew in size yet again, becoming a vastly different car than its Japanese and European counterparts. This generation was available in both coupe and sedan forms, while a hybrid model was introduced in early 2005. [52] For 2006, it was significantly updated. This Accord was the first to use wheels with five lug nuts instead of the traditional four on 4-cylinder models.

The 4-cylinder version came with 161 hp (120 kW) and 160 lb⋅ft (217 N⋅m) (166 hp (124 kW) and 161 lb⋅ft (218 N⋅m) for 2005–2007 models) K24A1 2397 cc 4-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual. The 4-cylinder engine also used a timing chain instead of a timing belt. [53] For 2003, Honda began to offer a more aggressive Accord Coupe, equipped with the 240 hp (179 kW) and 212 lb⋅ft (287 N⋅m) (244 hp (182 kW) and 211 lb⋅ft (286 N⋅m) for 2006–2007 models) J30A4 2997cc V6 mated to a 6-speed manual transmission borrowed from the Acura TL Type S (without a limited-slip differential).

This coupe came with 17-inch wheels (that varied between the 03-05 and 06-07 models), a strut tower bar, perforated leather seating, carbon fiber dash pieces, and an upgraded 180-watt stereo system. Because of the ability to maintain activation of the VTEC system all the way through hard acceleration, the Accord EX V6 6-speed ran from 0–60 mph in 5.9 seconds according to Car and Driver, more than a second faster than the automatic version. This model was also sold in Japan as the Honda Inspire from 2003 to 2008.

In China, the model got the name Guangzhou-Honda Accord and was sold from 2003 up to December 2009. Eighth generation Accord (Japan, Europe and Australasia) The updated Accord for the Japanese and European markets went on sale in mid-2008.

It is also sold as the Accord Euro in the Australia and New Zealand markets, and as the Acura TSX in North America. It is available as both a sedan and a station wagon. In the People's Republic of China, a version of the sedan is sold as the Honda Spirior which later on developed an independent second generation. Production began in August 2009 in China, by Dongfeng Honda. Production ended at the end of February 2015 for Australia and New Zealand spec models,although sales continued in Australia until the beginning of 2016.

In Europe, the car maintained the 2.0 and 2.4 i-VTEC gasoline (upped to 156 and 198 bhp respectively), whilst a new 2.2 i-DTEC diesel engine provided 147 bhp (110 kW) with 258 lb⋅ft (350 N⋅m) in standard trim levels, and 177 bhp (132 kW) with 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) in Type-S sports trim level.

This allowed the Accord to go 0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 8.5 seconds, and still do 50 mpg on the EU Combined cycle. [54] Sales in Europe were discontinued in 2015.

Eighth generation Accord (U.S.) The North American version of the Accord has a different body from its Japanese counterpart. This shape is sold as the Honda Inspire in Japan and is not sold in Europe. It was discontinued in Japan in September 2012. [ citation needed] Larger than the previous model, the sedan was classified as a full-size car by EPA standards, though American Honda executive vice president John Mendel said in 2011 that Honda did not intend to build a full-size car since the trend was for smaller cars getting better gas mileage.

[55] A coupe version was available, as well as a Crosstour fastback model, which was introduced in the U.S. for the 2010 model year.

[56] Engines include a 2.4 L 4-cylinder rated at 177 bhp (132 kW) with 161 lb⋅ft (218 N⋅m) for LX and SE sedans and 190 bhp (142 kW) with 162 lb⋅ft (220 N⋅m) for EX, EX-L and LX-S sedans and coupes; as well as a 3.5 L V6 rated at 272 bhp (203 kW) with 254 lb⋅ft (344 N⋅m).

In Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore, this car which is assembled in Thailand, is sold as the Accord in left or right-hand-drive forms. In Malaysia, the Accord is locally assembled. In Hong Kong, this car is made in Japan and sold as the Accord, and in Taiwan, the Accord is locally assembled. In China, Guangqi Honda also makes this vehicle with 2.0 L, 2.4 L and 3.5 L engines. Guangqi began making the Accord Crosstour in 2010.

Honda Accord VTi-L (Australia) For the ninth-generation Accord, Honda appointed Shoji Matsui, who served as an engineer on the Accord platform from 1985 to 1996, as the lead project manager.

It is the first Honda vehicle to be completely developed under the administration of Honda CEO Takanobu Ito. Honda revealed the Accord Coupe Concept at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In August 2012, the company released initial details pertaining to the 2013 Accord sedan, and production versions of both the sedan and coupe were fully unveiled in early September 2012.

[57] The Accord sedan went on sale on 19 September 2012, in the United States, with the coupe following on 15 October 2012. Corresponding release dates in Canada for the sedan and coupe models are 24 September 2012, and 1 November 2012, respectively. In February 2013, the Accord was scheduled to enter the Russian market.

[58] In June 2013, the Accord hybrid and plug-in hybrid were introduced to the Japanese market, with the discontinuation of the Honda Inspire, serving as Honda's large sedan and one level below the Honda Legend. From 2014, Honda began exporting the Accord from China to the Middle East, Africa, members of Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and others. [59] However, from 2017 onwards, Accords that are sold in the Middle Eastern markets are now sourced from the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio.

[60] While replaced by the tenth generation in late 2017, the ninth-generation Accord continued to be built in Thailand until 2019 in most right-hand-drive markets.

[64] Production began on 18 September 2017 and sales began on 18 October 2017 in the United States as a 2018 model. [65] The tenth-generation Accord is exclusively offered as a four-door sedan, the coupe variant being discontinued. New features available include front and rear parking sensors, magnetorheological dampers, acoustic PVB laminated front door glass, 6" automotive head-up display (HUD), and 4-way height-adjustable power lumbar driver's seat.

The vehicle is equipped with standard Honda Sensing (adding traffic sign recognition) on all models in the U.S. A base 1.5-liter VTEC turbo four-cylinder engine with available active grille shutters produces 143 kW (192 hp; 194 PS) and 260 N⋅m (192 lbf⋅ft) of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT). [66] The optional 2.0-liter VTEC turbo four-cylinder engine, which replaced the V6 engine option, was available beginning December 2017.

This engine is based on the engine in the Civic Type R, but with a smaller turbocharger, different pistons and camshafts, and the addition of a pair of balance shafts. [67] The engine, which produced 188 kW (252 hp; 256 PS) and 370 N⋅m (273 lbf⋅ft) of torque is mated to a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.

[66] The 10-speed automatic is 22 lb (10 kg) lighter than the previous 6-speed. The Accord Hybrid went on sale in March 2018. The 1.3 kWh lithium-ion battery was reduced in physical size and moved from the trunk to under the rear seat.

[68] The generator and propulsion motor permanent magnets no longer contain rare-earth heavy metals. [69] To save weight the front subframe, front control arms, hood, front and rear bumpers are constructed of aluminum, which were previously reserved for past hybrid models. Approximately 57% of the body is made from high strength steel including 29% ultra-high-strength hot stamped 980-1500 MPa grades. Structural adhesives are employed for the first time on the Accord with 115 ft of adhesive bonding applied to the body.

[70] [71] The body in white (BIW) is 42 lbs lighter with improved structural rigidity. At Virginia International Raceway, Car and Driver tested the 2.0-liter, 6-speed manual Accord with 19" touring all-season tires, it covered the 4.1 mile course in 3:18.4 minutes. [72] Other markets [ edit ] In China, the Accord Sport Hybrid debuted in April 2018 at the Beijing Auto Show. The ASEAN (Southeast Asian) market tenth generation Accord debuted on 28 November 2018 at the Thailand International Motor Expo.

[73] It was launched in Thailand on 19 March 2019, in Indonesia on 18 July 2019 at the 27th Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show, [74] [75] [76] in Australia on 28 November 2019 [77] and in Malaysia on 26 February 2020. [78] In Thailand, Honda received over 4,000 order for the Accord in two months after prices were released in mid-May, with over 50% of the bookings for the hybrid variant.

[79] [80] The tenth-generation Accord debuted for the Japanese domestic market at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show through October to November 2019 and went on sale in Japan on 21 February 2020 and is imported from Thailand.

[81] In October 2021, the Accord went on sale in Turkey. 2021 facelift [ edit ] For the 2021 model year, the Accord receives a minor facelift, including a revised grille, new wheel designs, and brighter LED headlights. A Sport SE trim replaces the non-hybrid EX, while the manual transmission has been discontinued due to poor sales.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto touchscreen integration became standard on all models, with wireless functionality on EX-L and higher trim levels.

( first posted 3/14/2011) If it wasn’t enough to build The Most Revolutionary Small Car In America (1973 Civic) And The Most Influential Modern Car In America, (1976 Accord), in 1982, Honda revolutionized the industry again by opening the first modern transplant factory (VW’s brief experiment notwithstanding).

Honda’s timing was perfect too, coming right on the heels of the 1981 Voluntary Export Restraint Agreement (“VER”). At a time when the Made In USA flag was being waved even by WalMart, Honda looked like a genius. American workers in depressed rust-belt Marysville, Ohio were cranking out exactly what the market wanted: a high-quality efficient compact car.

No wonder this Accord set the stage for its honda accord 1983 to the the number one sales spot just a few years down the all-American road. If memory serves me, Marysville only cranked out the sedans, at least to start with. So the red hatchback coupe may well be of Japanese origin.

No matter; although some honda accord 1983 of the brand claimed to be able to tell the difference between domestic and Japanese built Accords, in reality there was no substantial difference. Honda accord 1983 in a way, that was the really the biggest story of all. Quality at Honda accord 1983 car plants had been slipping precariously all through the seventies, and the whole domestic industry’s rep was in tatters.

Botched new cars like the Aspen/Volare (1976) and GM’s X-Bodies (Citation, etc; 1981) fueled the exodus to quality, which the Japanese had been sending this way for some time. But the idea of a US-built Honda was not nearly as easy to swallow then as it soon became. The whole story of Honda’s unexpected arrival in Marysville was fascinating to watch as it unfolded; an experiment in trust-building all the way around.

But it soon became the model that has been, and still is being replicated repeatedly, although generally further south to be more securely away from the clutches of the UAW. I remember being a bit dubious myself; we’d convinced ourselves that American auto workers could never meet the notorious standards of what we saw on tv from the Japanese factories: calisthenics, gleaming factories, workers able to stop the line without retribution, and workers meeting regularly to figure out ways to improve build quality as well as to reduce costs.

Compared to what had been going (wildcat strikes, sabotage) on at GM’s Lordstown, Ohio plant not far away, it might as well have been another planet.

But the time was over-ripe for a revolution in car production, and the UAW knew honda accord 1983 too. Throughout the eighties and ninetees, the Marysville model was increasingly adopted as America’s own. GM entered into a joint venture with Toyota (NUMMI), Chrysler did the same with Mitsubishi (Diamond Star), and the experiences gained are now SOP. But in 1982, Honda was the true pioneer. So what about these gen2 Accords as cars other than industry history?

They typified the steady incremental improvements Accords would (generally) see every four years, until more recent times, anyway. Size was up, as always. The second generation had a decidedly more substantial feel to them, and was the first step in its evolution from a compact to today’s full-sized car. But none of the precision feel was lost; if anything, the gen2 Accord felt better built and exuded a distinctly higher quality feel.

Mechanically, the prior Accord’s 1751 cc CVCC four was carried over, to be enlarged to 1830 cc in 1984. They still had carburetors, which Honda somehow managed to honda accord 1983 work remarkably well in that era of rapidly tightening emission controls.

With 75 hp, the Accord was decidedly not a sporty car per se, yet it was always quite willing to impersonate one. Honda never really pursued any over enhancement of the Accord’s sporty abilities, instead choosing focusing more on the profit-rich upscale direction, with the 1984 SE-i which sported fuel injection, 101 hp, but a decidedly plusher interior. No Brougham, though. These Accords were what Accords have always been: providing a degree of tactical and mechanical refinement one step ahead of the competition.

And of course with legendary reliability. There are a fair number ( update: a few) of this generation still in front line duty hereabouts, but there vulnerability to rust in other climes is known.

I picked these two, because they’re both of the first two year variants (’82-’83), before the front end restyle. I happen like this style better. The jump that Honda had over Toyota in this era was remarkable. Honda was already introducing second generation FWD cars and US-built ones at that, while Toyota was still selling RWD compacts.

honda accord 1983

The Accord would become the first Japanese nameplate to reach the top of the US sales stats in 1989. Heady times, and decidedly revolutionary ones at that. That doesn’t exactly happen very often, the closest thing being Hyundai’s recent explosion. But they’re really just playing by Honda’s play book, as old and tattered as it now is. More Accords: CC 1976 Accord (gen1): Modern Architecture PN CC 1986-1989 Accord (gen3) : Ignoring The Future In Favor Of The Present Perry Shoar CC 1990 Accord (gen4): Naturalized Citizen Perry Shoar CC 1996 Accord Wagon (gen5): You Might Think It Was The Last Of The Breed Jim Grey A nice overview of a very important car.

Just a few small corrections. The 100-hp fuel-injected engine was introduced in 1984, not ’85, and it was called SE-i, not Si. (The Prelude, CRX, and later the Civic offered Si models, but not the U.S.

Accord.) As far as I know, the SE-i was available only as a sedan, not as a hatch. Honda accord 1983 I recall, the SE-i was not positioned as a sporty model, but as a junior luxury car in the European mode, with leather upholstery and plusher trim.

It was really a follow-on to the earlier Accord SE, introduced in 1981, prior to this generation. The SE was another response to honda accord 1983 Voluntary Restraint Agreement — essentially, a lot of the Japanese automakers said, “Well, if the maximum number of cars we import is limited, let’s import more upscale products with fatter margins.” • As a further note, Honda would use the SE model designation on Accords at the end of a particular model run.

As you noted, it usually added “special equipment” to a LX model to come across as upscale. It often came (comes) in a color/colors not available on other models of Accord that year. Later SE’s were more often 2 doors instead of 4 doors. • Those Hondas were very well thought out cars and considering the rubbish the big 3 were building its no wonder they were a huge success.

A follow on from import restraint is the Acura badge also Infiniti, double your quota with a new name. Rootes group played the same game in New Zealand during the 1950s doubling their Hillman Minx imports by badging it a Humber 80 it worked and the Humber version was more popular.

• My spouse graduated from college in 1984. She had a chemical engineering degree and a new job fresh out of school.She wanted a new car. Her father (GM lifer) put some subtle (and not so subtle) pressure on her to buy an Olds Omega X car. She wanted a Corolla (still RWD in those days). I LUSTED for one of these.

From 10 feet away you could tell it was a beautifully put together car. The fit and finish was amazing. The engine was smooth and nearly silent and the interior astonished me.

We had to compromise,so we ended up with a Datsun 200SX because we had no kids and two doors would do nicely. The SX was a fine car,a little underpowered and tinny,but thank God,it was not an X car.

The Accord has been an unrequited love of mine (and hers) for going on 30 years now,and later this year, we have decided to finally get a new one when Honda does their year end clearance.

Its hard to describe to my offsprung just how honda accord 1983 of a forward leap the Accord and other Japanese models were to my generation. We had gone through our teen years driving late 60’s to Malaise-era Detroit excreta and these cars were a new reality. Thats why so many people my age can’t be tempted by anything that the big 3 put out today. • You couldn’t be more correct…I too graduated college in ’83 and started buying new cars the next year. Since then, it has been Toyota’s, VW’s, Nissans, and even a Volvo (never again) all purchased new.

I don’t recall ever considering a US brand for the “excreta” as you say that was being put on the roads, especially in the ’80’s. Back then, honda accord 1983 Japanese were going to bury us and not just in the car industry.

Remember studying Japanese management technique in college? Well it didn’t happen, but they’re still building quality automobiles. The US has long caught up in that regard but still…don’t know if I could do it. • I graduated college in October ’85.

Honda accord 1983 bought an ’85 Accord LX hatch with 16K on the clock and drove it for 3+ years and 40K miles with not one problem … gas, oil and tires were all it needed. Drove it from CA to MI and back in late summer 1986 and averaged 35+ MPG for the trip .

got 46MPG on one leg in NM. Fantastic little car. Mine was a 5-speed and had the burgundy velour interior. • That metallic gray sedan honda accord 1983 looks like our old 82 that we bought used in 1984 (I think.) Ours was really metallic silver though, with the paint almost as bright as that nearly jewel-like coating Honda were still painting their steel wheels with, which lasted for years and years while VW wheels painted a similar color rusted the first time the car was washed.

The generally nice all-over finish was what appealed most to us about that particular car; it didn’t seem that the ’87 we had next was quite so well finished, especially on places like the inside door jambs. That 1982 was dead reliable and still had the original engine and clutch when we sold it with well over 150K miles.

• honda accord as i grew it was our pet car always seen regularly on our silver screens,time passed the light of the day of accord being manufactured in the sub-continent din’t took off even to be honest what ever may be the feat of the accord but for a true enthusiast’s like me till date a car of the 1992 lines has been never made before nor after that .Simply superb stunning machine a real feast to my eyes even today, today i am seeing the 6th or 7th generation accord but seldom i take a second look,accor means the 1992 and that’s it.

• My dad ordered a silver 1982 Accord sedan when the 2nd-gen first hit the market. They were in super high demand at the time, so it took a while for his car to arrive at the dealership. (BTW I believe all 82 Accords were still manufactured in Japan; the Ohio plant didn’t start putting out Accords until the 1983 model year.) Build quality was superb, probably better than that of the 2010 Accord LX I’m leasing right now.

My 2010 has a few interior creaks and squeaks – something I certainly don’t recall ever hearing in the 1982 and 1991 Accords that my dad had owned.

honda accord 1983

• I had an ’83 5-speed, light blue. Built in Hiroshima. I had to sell it because I was moving to Japan and their restrictions wouldn’t let me bring it (back). It was a good, solid little car, my third after a ’62 Bug and a ’73 Volvo 142 that blew a water pump and then a head gasket. I loaned it to a friend who was looking for a car and she drove it 5 miles home after the pump gave out. Needless to say, NO ONE drives my cars now except with me in the passenger seat.

My Honda had a couple brake issues (I heat-spotted the brakes), a rusty bearing in the distributor, and the water pump nearly gave out – but I noticed it and got it to the shop before it failed. I liked them so much, I ended up buying an ’87 hatch and a ’91 sedan later. I never owned any of them more than a year or so. the last two were both totaled. Sideswiped by a Semi in the ’87, ’91 hit by a pickup making a turn into traffic – me.

Neither my fault. We have a ’06 Pilot now, but the precision and simplicity are not there anymore. Still a good vehicle, but it lost some of the old Honda-ness they still had in the 90’s.

• The greatest car I’ve ever owned or will ever own was a 1982 Honda Accord hatchback, burgundy, LX trim, 5-speed and enough mileage to have visited at least a couple different planets in our solar system. It set me off on a streak of buying several more Hondas of similar vintage which were all very good, but none so great as that initial $250 hatchback.What was so great about it?

I don’t know, exactly. I think it’s that everything on this car just made perfect sense, even where it didn’t. There was no waste or pretension about it, it had the exact right amount of everything… and it was the car that most perfectly realized my combined love of utilitarian, indestructible transport modules and obscure, overly-complicated technological wizardry.

I don’t understand carbs, I like fuel injection. For all practical purposes, EFI works much better for driveability, emissions, fuel economy – and in most real world applications, horsepower. Somehow, in 1982 – when even the Big Three were well into developing dependable EFI systems, Honda was still chugging along with their absolutely brilliant and mystifying Controlled Vortex Combustion Chamber carb. In fact, this generation Accord’s 1.8l motor was nothing more than a “big-block” version of the original Civic 1200 powerplant, which itself had it’s roots in their two-wheeled division.

No computer, just miles and miles of vacuum hose feeding that beautiful little sewing machine that I do not understand whatsoever, but I know it always worked perfectly no matter what. In fact, no other car – EFI or otherwise, idled as smooth or pulled through the rev range as consistently as my carburetted Hondas… and later on I had a Prelude with the twin-carb CVCC setup that made this one look like an erector set. I don’t know how it worked, it just did. Early Accords ran so well and so clean that they didn’t even need a catalytic converter to fly past US emissions standards of the time (including California!), but the Honda accord 1983 made them put one on there eventually anyway.

At one point, I somehow stumbled across a bunch of Japanese literature about Honda’s design philosophy for these Accords and it was just fascinating. There was nothing about market research, target demographics, etc… it was solely focused on driver experience and environmental harmony.

There was a whole section about how the shape of the dashboard over the instrument cluster was inspired by traditional rural Japanese architecture and all sorts of insane shit you would never believe a profitable automobile manufacturer would care about.

This car was no speed demon, but it loved to be driven like one. The little single-cam motor wanted to be revved all day, the skinny tires squealed and plowed through corners – but with predictable and controllable aplomb thanks to the MacPherson struts at all four corners. I never knew a car that was easier or more rewarding to drive at it’s absolute limit.

I could marvel for hours at seemingly mundane artifacts like the finely upholstered change tray that shut at the perfect angle to prevent rattling, the impeccable rows of stitching on the headliner fabric, the tightness of the shift-linkage, the unobtrusive door chime or the luminescence of the instrument cluster.

If New York had the Pacific Northwest’s climate, I’d still be driving that car and it would easily have been over a million miles by now. In 1982, Honda was a revelation and a revolution. It would still be a few years before honda accord 1983 Accord’s size was compatible with most mainstream American buyers, and with each size increment Hondas lost a little bit of the raw “driver experience” the company was striving for as well as honda accord 1983 outsider appeal honda accord 1983 early models personified like the VW Beetle before it.

IMO, the early Accord’s DNA carried over into the next few generations of Civic, but while those may have been objectively “better” cars in every respect, the ’76-’85 Accord is the one I’ll always love. It’s from a time when Honda wanted to be to Japan what BMW is to Germany, but with more practical packaging – and for those years I think they succeeded in a sublime manner.

Unfortunately, it’s now 2012 and Honda is so far removed from these types of cars it’s laughable… but such is the way of human nature.

Every revolutionary ends as an oppressor or heretic before the next cyclic rebellion begins once more. Honda is dead, long live Honda! • My best friend had an ’82 Honda Accord Hatchback, bought when he lived in Southern California (I met him a few years later when he relocated with his now wife in central Texas). He had it through 1989, when he was involved in an an accident where a honda accord 1983 hit him to avoid another vehicle on the side of the road where they were trying to steal gravel?

He was sore, but OK, he had just bought front struts which he was going to replace but never got to it, so he returned the parts to the auto parts store for credit. I rode in it many times with him; one of our co-workers used to say that the back of his car sounded like one of the video games you found in an arcade back in the ’80’s (sorry, forget which game).

He replaced it with an ’82 Celica Coupe, which had amazingly low (22k) miles, especially for central Texas, where I’d find used small cars with megamiles most often. He still had the Celica when he moved to Colorado about 1996 but got rid of it some time after that in favor of a minivan…but I think the Accord is still one of his favorites. I liked the hatchback, only lasted a few more years (wish Honda would still make a mid-sized hatchback)…considered buying an ’86 but didn’t like the package deals (had to move up to LXI to get fuel injection back then) and stayed on my VW kick that continues to this day, buying a ’86 GTI instead…a bit smaller than the Accord but more sporty which was what I was into back then.

• I purchased a 1982 5-speed manual silver hatchback in 1988. I had 160,000 miles, ran perfectly. My wife drove it about 20,000 miles then called me from the side of the road. She said “The engine just made that kind of noise it makes when you know its never going to run again.” She was right. A valve spring retainer fell apart, and the valve dropped. Removing the head was to witness complete mechanical terror.

No bother. I found a JDM used engine for $425.00, and spent the following weekend installing it. Drove the car another 100,000 miles. In short, this was a honda accord 1983 car that never returned less than 30 mpg. • I bought a brand new 1983 Accord here in Seattle on fall of 1982, had to factory order it since they sold like hot cakes. I ordered a base accord with pazley red color and matching interior and a 5-speed. I previously owned a 1973 Honda CVCC I bought new as well (one of the first in my area at the time) which was an excellent fun little car and most importantly….reliable.

I put well over 230K miles on the accord with no issue at all. the only complaint I have is the body corrosion. We live in a damp climate in Seattle though by 1994 the inside of the trunk lid rusted through on the accord. My 1970 Chevy Impala coupe I also bought new started rusting on the bottom of the front fenders though it was 15 years old before doing that (that was also a dead reliable car, thirsty, though well built reliable car).

I bought a new 1989 Accord LXI aqua 5 speed coupe with tan cloth interior as well and a 1993 Civic DX hatchback 5 speed new as well. Currently my wife and I own a 2012 Accord EX and a 2009 Civic sedan. Out of all the cars we owned, the red 1983 AccordCVCC and the Impala my wife and I still have good memories with. • These were always my favorite Accords, though I haven’t seen one here in Ontario in quite a few years. A friend of my sister bought one in the late ’80’s and was quite happy with it, and it probably led to my sister owning several Hondas, including a 2000 Accord and a 2006 Odyssey, both of which she still owns.

There’s something great about the earlier Accords, though, and in retrospect I would have looked for one back in the day. Preferably a 5-speed – Honda made a much better front-drive manual shift linkage than anything from Detroit. • A-body? GM was chasing Honda from the moment Honda added two more wheels.

Read “The Decline and Fall of the US Auto Industry.” The Accord was haunting GM’s clowns’ brains from the moment it went on sale.

They could never match the first Accord. This one showed up when GM’s pale imitation of the first generation hit the market. No GM sedan has sold on desirability since. They’ve been bargain basement for 35 years. • Dad had one of these in the ’90s when it was more than a decade old, a 1984 4dr. He had always driven big old Detroit iron and this was a revolution to him.

Small and economical, but roomy enough inside to be comfortable, with nice cloth seats. Graphite grey exterior, light grey interior, 4-spd auto. What a jewel it was! The engine ran smooth as glass, even with a carb you could start that thing up on the coldest days and it was still well-mannered, never rough.

Overall fit and finish was a big cut above average too. The rust finally got that car, since we’re in southern Ontario. Miss that car a lot. • We bought a new 1984 Accord LX sedan. I remember it seemed so jewel-like. I would go out to the garage just to look at the panel gaps. It amazed me that they were so uniform after the Detroit built cars I’d driven until then.

It ran perfectly for about eight years until it was rear-ended at a stoplight and was pushed into the car ahead. The Accord was about three feet shorter, but all four doors opened and shut with the same “whump” sound as they always had. • After my sister’s good luck with a ’78, Dad took the Honda plunge on an ’82, dark brown auto.

He was forever astonished at the good build quality and solid reliability, but lamented the manual choke and lack of cruise control. But he became a Honda guy forever. An ’86 Accord solved the nuisance issues and added A/C. He traded that for a ’91, stating it would be the last car he would buy (he was 71 at the time), and it was.

Coming up to his 93rd birthday in 2013, he decided it was time to give up his licence, and “sold” the car to his grand-daughter for $1. It’s a bit dinged up, theres some rot in the fenders, and the fuel gauge is iffy, but she still drives it, with over 225,000 kms on it, and it’s still almost as reliable as that first one was.

And it started with one of these. • I think these cars changed the industry – or at least the car selling business – in another way as well. I really wanted one. I tried to buy one. They were in high demand when this version appeared in late 1981, and there were dealer markups, sometimes exorbitant, here in the Bay Area. But in addition to those, most dealers were adding $300 paint protectant packages (“PolyGlyCoat” was the name I remember) and $200 Scotchguard treatments of the upholstery, plus tacking on wobbly pin stripes and body molding.

I was willing to pay a markup, but I didn’t want some yahoo slathering chemicals on my new Japanese car. So I told the sales person I wouldn’t take that stuff. She told honda accord 1983 all the cars had it. I walked in the back of the other and pointed out a car carrier laden with new Accords, still coated in their transport coating (or maybe it was just dirt).

I said how about one of those. She said I’d still have to pay for the options as well as markup. Honda accord 1983 refused, and she asks me to leave the dealership. So I left, and bought a new ’82 Civic, unmolested and with no markup, from another dealer, who had no Accords in stock. But I did pay full retail. Anyway, I think the Accord was the start, for a period, at least in California, where honda accord 1983 markups and low quality dealer add-ons became the norm for popular Japanese cars.

Still a practice in some areas, but at least Internet shopping provides better tools for buyers nowadays. • You really had to have been there when these came out ~ I was running a hole in the wall Indie VW Shop and very happyI test drove one of these and knew the VW’s air cooled days were about to endclosed up my shop in 1984 before things got bad.

I love honda accord 1983 but have never owned one of these except buy to repair and re sell. I don’t want one but if you like to drive and not worry about it breaking down, these were the shiznit. -Nate • Indeed a very important car. When I got out of college in the midwest in 1982, an Olds Cutlass was still seen as an aspirational “first real car”. Three years later, it was one of these and Oldsmobile buyer demographics would suffer badly over the next fifteen years. These were also hard to buy.

Even after Marysville production was up and running, these were sought-after items (and priced like it). I had two separate friends who started looking at one of these but settled for a Mazda 626 instead either because they couldn’t get what they want or because they were unwilling to pay the “Honda premium”.

• This makes me wonder if my ’84 Accord will ever pop up on this website. I bought it from a guy a few miles from me, here in Southern California. Only 118K miles on it….and walking around town, I spotted another 84/85 Accord (dark green) in an apartment complex, someone’s daily driver (as is mine). Mine used to be the same metallic grey color honda accord 1983 in the pic above, but it was badly oxidized so the PO repainted it beige (he didn’t do such a great job but it still looks snazzy).

I’ve only put a little over 2K miles on her since I honda accord 1983 her a few months ago, and she hasn’t failed me yet… 🙂 • We bought a well-used ’84 Accord LX back in 1998. Greek White 4-door with blue upholstery. It was going to be my college car, but I ended up keeping my old Malibu and Dad drove the Accord. I did get some time behind the wheel, though, and what a fantastic little car that was. Even at 14 years old, with something like 140,000 miles on the odometer, it still felt solid and well put-together.

And that engine may not have been big on power, but it was one of the most enjoyable to drive cars I’ve ever been behind the wheel of. No sports car but it was perfectly happy being driven like one! The interior design was quite nice also, great honda accord 1983, and while legroom in the back was tight due to the short wheelbase, it was still functional for 4 people as long as the rear passengers were not over 6′ tall.

Dad had that car for 4 years and around 30K miles. I can only recall two problems with it–one where something in the engine broke due to metal fatigue (I cannot recall what, but I remember hearing the repair bill was something like $400) and that peculiar little 3-barrel carb needing replacement as it would no longer pass emissions testing. That’s what caused the car to depart our company–they didn’t want to pop for a new carb on a car that old.

In retrospect it probably would have been good for several more years. Even in 2002, the only rust it had was on the typical Honda “trouble spot” at the rear arches, and neither spot was very large. • I bought a brand new 1983 Honda Sedan in light blue. Drove it 156,000 miles and it lasted 11 years. Never had a problem with it until the frame and rear quarter panel started to rust and it could not pass inspection.

The best car I ever owned! American cars that I considered buying could not compare. Great mileage and no problems. I think I paid $10,600 cash. Got my monies worth? • My folks were friends with a couple, Alex and Bonnie, who had one of these. Sister and I stayed with Alex and Bonnie for a few days in 1984 when our parents went out of town, and they drove us places in their nearly new Accord sedan.

At eight, I was beginning honda accord 1983 know stuff about cars, and I asked what year the car was. They said it was a 1983, and I thought myself very clever saying something like “That means it could’ve really been made in 1982”.

although some aficionados of the brand claimed to be able to tell the difference between domestic and Japanese built Accords, in reality there was no substantial difference. I wonder about parts sourcing.

What was the Japanese-made parts content of these American-built Accords? Were they installing Japanese sealed beams from Koito-Stanley-Ichikoh, for example, or American ones from GE-Westinghouse-Philips-Sylvania? The cars for the European and UK markets (pic) had headlamps made in Germany by Bosch, which is why I ask this particular question, but I wonder more broadly about American parts content in these honda accord 1983 American-built Honda cars.

• My good friend at work bought a new one in California (an ’82) right before I met him…he and his soon to be wife moved to Texas afterward (where I met him) and have since left (25 years ago).

I came close to buying an Accord hatch in ’86 when I instead bought an ’86 GTi, mostly because I didn’t want power windows/locks of the LXi, but it was honda accord 1983 only model offered with fuel injection that year (I’ve since had to come to terms with power windows/locks being virtually impossible to avoid on newer cars).

One of our co-workers who rode with us to lunch used to think the back of it sounded like a video game…not sure which one, but I’m sure it was one of those you found at some sort of public place (pizza place, arcade) back in the 80’s (which is when he said it). It met its demise in 1989 when someone was on the shoulder of the road (partly in the road) stealing from a gravel pile, and another vehicle trying to avoid honda accord 1983 hit his Honda and totalled it.

He had just bought struts for it but hadn’t gotten around to installing them, so he honda accord 1983 them to the parts store…he got a really good deal on the replacement, also an ’82 (used) Toyota Celica notchback…with only 22k miles on it.

My favorite generation of Celica, he had it awhile even after he left Texas…I’m a hatchback fan but I really liked that Celica…I seem to know lots of people who like sporty notchbacks though…my 2 youngest sisters (one since deceased) had qty-4 Nissan 200 or 240 SX’s between them (2 each)…all of them notchbacks, all of them automatic.

I helped them find most of them (except my sister’s ’97 she bought new). Don’t know whether I’ll ever get around to owning a Honda. My problem is that when I’m in the market, they don’t offer a hatchback (with exception of 1986, when I came close). Can’t even buy another Golf (new) since they only sell the GTi. Honda stopped selling Accord hatches in 1989, possible exception of the Crosstour (was that an Accord?…kind of looked like one …otherwise never saw a 5 door Accord hatch) which I wish they’d sell…again, when they offered the Crosstour, I wasn’t looking for a car…now it seems like all cars are endangered, don’t want to buy an SUV but if that’s all that’s offered, guess I’ll have to.

In '83, the Accord now had a four-speed automatic transmission, instead of the former three-speed. Of course, it still came in manual transmissions as well. Those still driving it (and yes, there are plenty of '83 Accords running around 23 years later) say "age is just a number," and "it's the best thing I've owned by far. No problems, no hassles, no worries." The biggest complaint seems to be with the analogue clock, which is said to tick quite loudly. lanceg asked a 1983 Honda Accord Base Sedan Maintenance & Repair question 13 years ago Problems With Rebuilt Carburetor i rebuilt the carb and when i put it back on the car it ran, but the car runs at 4500 rpm at idle with no tention on the throttle and the throttle screw is all the way out i set the honda accord 1983 valves as s.

The car reportedly was kept at the original owner’s upstate New York winery and only driven for about two years, then was placed into storage for more than 30 years. After the original owner passed away, the car was sold by the owner’s estate, and the seller purchased the car from a dealer in New York a year ago.

The seller brought this Accord to Minnesota, and has added approximately 40 of the 32k indicated miles since. This Accord is now being offered with two keys, a set of seat covers, an original brochure, and a clean Minnesota title in the seller’s name. The second-generation Accord was slightly larger than the original and featured square headlights. For 1983, Paisley Red was restricted to the upscale LX version of the Accord hatchback.

There is some pitting in the window surround chrome. On the exterior, a spot of rust is pictured on the passenger-side door sill. A Honda accessory louvered cover is affixed to the rear window. New tires reportedly were installed by the dealer in New York just prior to the seller’s purchase. The silver finish on the factory 13″ steel wheels has faded, and stainless steel trim rings are also present.

The red cloth front seats had been under sheepskin seat covers, which honda accord 1983 included. The LX came standard with power steering.

The dash retains its Honda dealer-installed AM/FM cassette player with speakers in the doors and the parcel shelf, and aftermarket oil pressure and ammeter gauges are affixed to the lower dash. When purchased by the seller, the passenger-side air intake venting had been compromised due to a rust spot within the system, and the heating and air-conditioning were not working. The rust spot was reportedly repaired, and the climate-control system resealed.

A demonstration of the heating and air-conditioning system is included in the video below. Just over 32k miles are indicated on the odometer. The 1.8L inline-four produced 75 horsepower and 96 lb-ft of torque when new and was tasked with motivating 2192 pounds. Service performed under current ownership included a carburetor cleaning and adjustment, an oil change, a cooling system flush, and a new exhaust.

The seller notes some rust present in the engine bay. The video above includes a walk-around, a cold start, and driving.
