This car has more style than a Camry but comes up short in the gotta-have department. I have owned a Jetta and a Maxima. The Accord would be my 3rd choice for the gotta-have-it factor. In my opinion, the car has been very reliable with low cost on the wear and tear parts such as brakes and belts. They actually last a long time. There are lot of aftermarket parts to personalize your Honda.
Reliability, relative low cost of ownership (wear & tear parts last long). Maintenance is high as any car. More personality than a Camry, but short of the features of a Maxima. Resale, longetivity, and fold down rear seats. Big trunk.
The car is a little small on interior volume. A little noisy inside (considering the Honda hype). The 4 cyl engine with AT is nothing flattering. Power windows are extremely slow and weak. A/C is marginal.
