Love my Honda
Added: 12th of October 2013
From when I first saw the Honda in reviews I just knew it was the vehicle for me. Sitting in the show room when I first looked at it in the metal, it just said 'hello' to me. It was a preregistered vehicle so it made a saving on the list price (a bonus point) Driving for the first time proved it to be exactly the car we needed at the time. The odometer read 58 miles and the Honda dealer confirmed that was genuine and upon my own inspection and expertise I also confirmed it. Now eight years on, OK it now done 61K but still goes just as well as ever. As one of the adverts from Honda used to say "it just works" and it has without fail. Regular service and generally looking after it and it sit out side in all weathers it still continues to average of 44 MPG Perhaps not too good by current standards but hey its is 8 years old! It has full leather,and heated seats where the fronts are electric, duel control air. con. and, now out of date, the standard Honda Sat. Nav. Only once have we had the need to seek outside assistance to recover the car. A resulting very large hole in the rear tire due to something large picked up at the local recycling yard. As with lots of cars now it has no spare only a bottle of sealant - which is about as much use as a chocolate fire guard in this instance. Bring back spares or at least space savers. Would I buy another Honda - yes, Accord probably no, personal circumstance change and really they suggest that we do not need to carry as much stuff around. Then there is the price of fuel. Cars with better economy now the norm. Overall my time with the Accord - brilliant, satisfying and trust worthy - comfortable. We could not have been better served.
