We already have a 2008 Accord and love it. This purchase was to replace a 2003 Camry w/ well over 200,000 miles. Contenders included an Altima 2.5 SL and another Camry XLE(to many problems right now) & the Malibu w/ Onstar (They lost on ride, brushed suede for Leater seats, overall GM still doesn't get it). The standard wishbone suspension and accompanying drive helped win me over (have to go to Lexus for that in the Toyota family. Although this car is not an American "branded" automobile, it is as "American made" as the Malibu, or more. Overall the Accord is a wise choice in a midsized sedan.
Double Wishbone suspension & accompanying ride. Known reliability and high resale value even at high mileage.
