Bought my first Honda!

Discussion in 'Car Forum' started by txwrangler, Jul 15, 2005.

  1. All I can say is WOW!! I bought an 05 Accord EX coupe with the v6 engine... I LOVE this car!! Black with black leather interior, 6 speed transmission, power everything... This thing will be a joy to drive 40 miles to work, and at about 30 mpg, won't suck my pocketbook dry like the lifted Chevy silverado I was driving...

    excellent choice, the honda V6 is a great motor when not hampered by a slushbox

    It won't be your last. They may be pricey initially, but if you keep them long enough they are actually the best value out there.

    I know it's a great car but I am not a fan of the new accord styling, I thought the last style looked better.

    I would want the same thing, but a Camry ;f.

    Sorry, I'm a Toyota fan. Honda v. Toyota is sort of like the Japanese Chevy/Ford debate.

    I would be a much bigger fan of Hondas if they were RWD. I'll never own a FWD car except as a beater, so I'll probably never own a Honda except as a beater.

    Glad you're happy, though. :)

    as commuter cars, daily drivers, beaters, whatever, Honda/Toyota reliability is unbeatable. IMHO, FWD fits perfectly into that roll, so it works out well.

    Well, I am in the process of selling my Honda Civic, and I just bought a couple Toyota's. I like Toyota's, but I will buy Honda's again.

    Honda and Toyota, I probably won't ever buy anything else besides what these two companies make.

    I bought a new Honda Accord EX in the early 90's. Loved the car. Best car on the road for the money, hands down. Sold it for gas hog, had to tow a trailer so.........

    But I can't say enough good things about Hondas. Does anyone know when the US car companies are going to get a clue??????

    What has it been now, about 25 years since they got lost in the woods?

    Last time I checked they are having to almost give thier cars away (employee discount, all 3 are doing it now). Gee I wonder why the japanese manufacturers aren't doing it? Oh yeah, beacuse they don't have to. They sell just fine as they are.

    My next car most definately will be a Toyota of some sort. I just can't decide if I want a truck (those new tacomas are nice) or car.

    My daughter has approximately 215,000 miles on her 1998 CRV and the engine still runs great.

    I have a '98 Prelude and i LOVE it. Honda makes one of the worlds best gear boxes. The car (with propper rubber) handles better than it is fast, but that is how it should be. The suspension should always be fast than the engine(unless it is a drag car). Oh how I would love it if it were rwd.
    126k miles and she has only had an O2 sensor. I give her Amsoil and drive the sh*t out of her.
    It will be hard to replace it, since the lude is no longer made.

    Oh man, dont get me started. That is easily my favorite thing about hondas, especially modern hondas. No other company, and I mean that, makes cars that shift as well manually as sporting hondas. The S2000 and RSX are to die for shift wise. And its such a perfect match for motors than need to be rev'd.

    Yeah, I'm totally talking myself into another honda;g

    I sold BMWs for a while, and LOVE the M3. However, I wish Honda had done the gear box in it. And as far as the nav, BMWs suck, and Hondas is awesome. BMWs do handle much better than just about anything out there. I guess the perfect car would have to be a mutt.
    suspesion= BMW
    engine= Honda/BMW
    electronics= Honda
    gearbox= Honda
    Body= Porshe?

    The ultimate irony is that the employee discount also caused a rise in sales of Japanese cars. Folks did buy cars, but they often chose a Japanese one, despite the lack of a discount.

    i have the 03 v6 ex.....its a great car....
    just think 0-60 in 7 sec from a honda,
    it can fit 4 adults comfortably.
    push down the rear seats, i can fit my mountain bike and gear.
    you could buy a faster car,more expensive car,more luxurious car,
    but dollar for dollar honda's are hard to beat.
    honda accords have been in motortrend and car and drivers top 10, 25 of the last 30 yrs.

    honda are very reliable and have a tremendous resale value
    here is a list of the honda products i or my family has owned

    86 accord lx-sold in 96(141,000 miles)
    90 accord lx-still run ning(127,000 miles)
    92 accord lx-still running,sold to a relative in 04(105,000 miles)
    96 intera stolen (126,000 miles)
    03 accord v6 coupe......

    now if they would only come out w/ awd accord.

    Great car!

    Just wish they'd start importing the diesel Accord.

    Maybe after test driving both they realized that the current offerings from American car companies pretty much suck (with only a couple exceptions, but usually those are the one's NOT eligible for the discount, like the mustang, Vette, Viper, F-150,etc.)

    I hate Hondas. But congrats on the new car. Only Chevys, Fords, and 1 Ponti for me. I currently own a Brand New 2005 Ford mustang GT 5 speed stick. Slushies suck!
