2008 Honda Accord: Airport Taxi Duty
November 30, 2007
The 8:00 p.m. email simply asked, "What are you driving?"
A common enough question in our office, but when it comes from two Edmunds.com editors on assignment in Japan, it translates pretty quickly to, "Can you pick us up at the airport in the morning?"
Lucky for the boys, our long-term 2008 Honda Accord was already stashed in my garage. I responded with the affirmative, "What time?," safe in the knowledge that the Accord's 14-cubic-foot trunk would handle their personal luggage and camera gear, and my daughter's car seat wouldn't be in the way, either.
Had I gone for the Mini Cooper that night, they might've been thumbin' it...
