Finally retiring our 97 Accord LX for a new 2005 Accord LX replacement after 209,000 miles. Engine & Drivetrain still going very strong, but rest of car starting to go. This is by far the best and longest lasting car my wife (aka lead foot) has ever owned. Still getting 24 MPG, we have changed the oil every 3000 - 4000 miles on this car and will continue doing the same with the new one.
Handling, acceleration, very comfortable seats (Front and Back), car fits like a glove. Reliability
1) More durable paint job, the car looks like it's been sandblasted after all of these miles. 2) Greater resistance to door dings - the car seems to pick up a new one every month or two from the local shopping center. 3) Radio should come with an audio input jack for MP3's, CD's, MD's ect.
