This is my 7th Honda and we've had nothing but good luck with them. This car is as safe and reliable as you can get. I firmly believe these are the best cars for the money. If you can't quite afford one, I recommend going with a Civic. They are smaller and not quite as smooth, but still great cars. I had an 89 Accord that had 210,000 miles on it with no major problems ever when I sold it to my cousin.
I was also in a bad head-on collision in my 97 Accord and survived with minor scratches. I'll buy nothing but Honda.
Don't ever buy the Del Sol. And I'd recommend staying away from the Odyssey and the Passport as they are both made by Isuzu.
