    I bought a HONDA!!

    What can I say? I was in the market for a used car, and my price range was <$10,000. After spending a day trying to find the right car for me, and after a little convincing from my dad, I bought a 2001 Honda Accord EX Coupe.

    <a href="http://img451.imageshack.us/my.php?image=accordka5.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img451.imageshack.us/img451/3...cordka5.th.jpg" border="0" alt="Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us" /></a>


    It has the 4-banger along with the 5-speed manual. The car drives GREAT. Besides leather, it is loaded. It only has something like 63,000 miles on it too.

    I was in the search for a reliable, comfortable, easy to maintain vehicle, that also held its value.

    After lots of haggling with the sales manager, we got them down to $8,500. Not bad, considering the book value is over $11,000.

    I am the very proud owner of my first Japanese car. If this car serves me well over the next several years, Honda may have found a customer for life.

    Re: I bought a HONDA!!

    Nice man. My experience with my '04 Civic has been pretty good so far, and for buying a car that I didn't "really" want, it's grown on me immensely and I love it. After 15,000 (picked her up with 25k) miles my only problems have been..

    1. A sixteen year old girl with permit driving straight into my driver's side door at 40mph (w/parents in the car mind you...)

    2. Having my STOCK rims stolen TWICE by the pit crew in my town who has be targeting Civic EX wheels from my year in the surround counties..the second time I had locks..

    Pic I took yesterday with my cell..not washed..finally got to washing it today since my broken hand is healing better. I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with another Honda for my second car, but you can bet your ass it won't be black..



    Oh it is great having a new house and finally being able to wash my car whenever I feel..Having a driveway is truely a luxury that no one should ltake lightly..



    Hope I didn't hi-jack our thread or anything man, but good luck with your car. Hopefully yours is as reliable and safe for you as mine had been for me

    My first car isn't a car. Its a truck. And my parents knoe I hate Toyota, and they do too.

    This is my first car:

    Sorry to highjack... But remember:

    -Your Honda has never beaten my truck in any contest. Well except for ride quality, noise, fuel economy, power options, 0-60, 1/4 mile, acceleration, top speed. Not to mention Windows which actually roll down, or in your case you just press a button.

    But my truck could squish anything it wanted.

    I got an Aveo LT, brand new, 5 yr/100K warranty and only paid $12,500 to include tax, title and license. I love that car, especially since it lets me keep the miles off the suburban and I can keep the burb all clean and detailed, sitting in the garage waiting for family trips. That price included a $500 factory rebate, $1000 military discount, and $2000 GM cardmember earnings. I highly recommend the GM card to anyone who is loyal GM. You'll get 5% back for every purchase. I put everything possible on the card and just pay it in full every month.

    Congrats on the Accord, excellent choice. I've had an Acura EL (Civic re-badge in Canada) for 4 years now without any issues. You can't beat the reliability of Honda.

    No.. you are right you can't. The company with the most recalls in 2006 is the most reliable... right.

    Nice ride. Remember kids. Honda plays fair unlike Toyota. There is nothing wrong with Honda and they should be the ones on top. Not Yota.
