1996 Accord SiR Wagon
An SiR wagon is such a useful and fun ride. It happens to be affordable, sporty, safe, and reliable, too. This Frost White (NH-538-3) Accord is a clean example, that is turn-key ready to roll. Aside from a few light dings, chips, and scratches this five-seater is in good shape, and is set off by subtle rear privacy tint, an OEM front lip, factory rainguards, and a classy set of gold emblems. Fresh off a recent service, this big block H22A-powered estate is offered with a mere 42k verified and documented miles. Fantastically functional and highly unique, this Japanese Classic would make for a spacious commuter, cool weekend cruiser, or frugal family hauler.
The interior is logically laid out, full of electric equipment, and boasts a few upgrades. The dashboard is in good shape and houses dual SRS airbags for those who may be a bit more safety-conscious. The driver benefits from a tilt-adjustable steering wheel and power windows, electric folding mirrors, and power locks. This wagon includes a functional automatic climate control system, which can blast cold A/C or singing heat at a moment's notice. If you prefer natural ventilation, a desirable and rare OEM sunroof can roll back to provide a light breeze. The Pioneer audio upgrade works like a charm and filters tunes through the speakers to make your commute more lively. The upgraded front Recaro seats are in good shape aside from some light seat bottom wear, and the rear bench lacks any major rips, stains, or tears. The headliner and door cards have resisted major abuse and we even have the OEM floor liners on hand to protect against future spills and stains. It even has the boot mat included and the rear security shade.
This FWD chassis was considered quite sporty when it was sold brand new. Not much has changed as the CF2 still features a peppy engine, communicative steering, and a stable FWD platform. The 2.2L VTEC engine under the bonnet is fresh off an oil and filter service and starts up with the twist of the key. A new 12v battery was installed to aid ignition and it will last for several years to come, even through the coldest of winter snaps. A new engine air filter and new fuel filter ensure the H-Series idles and revs seamlessly all the way to redline and the four-banger is linked to an automatic gearbox. Acceleration is decent, and the light curb weight is even better for maintaining top-tier fuel economy. A new front right axle was installed by one of our trained techs to ensure the power transfers to the asphalt seamlessly. If you need to slow down this Honda from higher speeds, new brake pads and rotors were installed up front. The predictable suspension sorts out road imperfections nicely and the steering is power-assisted and has been refreshed with a new right bellow boot. Lastly, new tires were installed at all four corners The Falken rubber quiets down the ride and most importantly will provide tens of thousands of miles of grip for the adventures ahead!
