Once in a while Honda give us a mass
market vehicle that is an instant
classic, and their current Accord
Coupe is one of them.
A head turner from the moment it hit
the street, it looks as fresh today as
it did in '98. Mine prompted my
teenage nephew (teenage boys, often
the harshest of vehicle critics!)to
gasp and ask if I was rich ... how
many other mass market, sub $20k cars
will do that?
Add to this the fact that it can be a
blast to drive if you want it to be.
The coupe has balanced handling and
communicative steering. Put the 5
speed in it and the this becomes a
genuine bargain of a drivers car.
Steering, handling, Gas mileage,
reliability, resale $, fun to drive
wrapped up so very stylishly.
A bit more sound proofing, the fabric
on the console & arm rests, slightly
dowdy interior ... it's sttill much
better than Toyota's unacceptable
cheapo looking efforts but deserves to
be more like Volkswagen's in a car
that looks this good on the outside!
