I have three Hondas including two Accords. The great part of it is it's ingenious placement of the controls. When I'm looking for something for the a/c it is so easy to find it, the knobs are large and the buttons are close to the steering wheels. I've been in other cars and many car companies overlook this need. The gas mileage is great and the performance is pretty good for a four cylinder car. I was expecting a boring car but it is much more than I ever thought an Accord could be. If you are looking for a great car that will last almost forever, a Honda Accord is just the car! :D
The placement of the controls, response, great brakes (not too sentitive but not weak either!) resale value, and nice model!
They should add an option for xenon headlights for the newer models such as the 2006 since nissan and toyota are starting to offer it, but the 2001 model is pretty good value for the dollar!!!
