12 years old and still without a rattle

ReviewI keep wondering how I can ever replace this car. Nothing can be as reliable as it has been and it still looks stylish at the curb. 152K miles with nothing more than maintenance. Why did they stop making them? The couple of things that broke (tailgate lifters and antennae motor) that should not have were cheerfully replaced by Honda (except for the door handle--seems this is a common defect) and regular oil changes and following the maintenance schedule have kept us on the road through all kinds of weather. First brake job at 148K miles. The two little rust spots are a pain but after 12 years of snow and salt, well, I am only surprised that there aren't more.
Best FeaturesReliability. Comfort. No rattles or squeaks. Handling feels like a zippy car instead of a family wagon. Easy to drive. Room to shove in dogs, kids, plants, whatever.
Worst FeaturesDoor handles should never break. Too bad about the rust. ABS. A new model wagon as good as this would be wonderful.
