I would not upgrade for the following reasons:

1. 1997 Accord in "all seems okay now" condition is good enough. The mileage isn't really all that high for such a car. I don't perceive the newer ones to offer any significant improvement besides just being newer.

2. Sure, you'll probably have to spend some money on repairs occasionally, but on a 1997 Accord it's most likely to be trivial compared to the costs of a new[er] car and insurance to go along with it.

3. I actually like the older Accords better. The newer ones just seem to have less personality. My personal favorite is the 1992 EX Coupe with a manual transmission. If I ever find a clean, stock one for sale I'm going to try to buy it.
