We purchased our first new car in November, and we've been together 13 years with two children, lots of sports and running around. We researched many cars and in the end, we always went back to the Hondas...the deal we got on the DX was INCREDIBLE...we paid less than 13,000 with no trade in, brand new, off the lot for a 2005....it has already got almost 15,000 miles on it and we LOVE IT...roomy for the 4 of us, huge trunk....great ergonomics inside...looks great outside too...our gas mileage has been about what it stated, maybe a little under...but that is when my husband is driving :-) very dependable....no problems thus far and I know people with Honda Accords with 250,000 + miles...
Looks good, is comfortable and ergonomically set up well inside. Will be "sporting" it up a bit though with spoiler, new rims and ground effects eventually.
Only that AC is standard, otherwise, it's been great...other than the "ping" marks from interstate driving on the front end as it's low, we'll be getting a bra for it soon.
