I believe Honda Accords are one of the best cars ever made dollar for dollar. If you have a job where you drive a lot as I do, I would HIGHLY recommend a Honda Accord. Keep the oil changed and drive them reasonably, and they will go for a very very long time.
Very ergonomic interior, brakes are outstanding, driving view, handling, build quality
As my fiancee says, it kind of looks like a Grandpa car...the new ones are much better. Plan on purchasing a new one next year.
