Honda complemented its existing compact Civic with the mid-size Accord in the 1976 model year. In 1994, Honda redesigned the Accord for the fifth time in its lifespan. This time, however, the redesign was drastic, as it gave the Accord a smoother ride, improved handling and better aerodynamics. The 1995 Accord had optional antilock brakes in its LX trim line and standard ABS in the EX trim level. The Accord’s ABS system used a hydraulic unit, which Honda dubbed the ABS modulator unit, to control the fluid pressure to each wheel. Air in this modulator can create havoc in the Accord’s ABS, but bleeding the system at the first sign of problems can prevent any potentially disastrous failures.
