My 2004 Accord EX is without question the best car I have ever owned (am will likely own). In four years I have not had a single issue with it, both interior and exterior. Routine maintenance and a little TLC leave her running and looking great. An added bonus is the fantastic fuel efficiency now that gas is through the roof. On average, she gets close to 30 mpg. If you are considering buying a Honda, this particular model will serve you very, very well.
Sporty look (I think I have the sports package with the steel rims, etc.); good acceleration for a 4 cylinder; fold down seats with trunk access have enabled me to move many large items with ease; of course, great gas mileage.
