Excellent car - superior crash performance

Vehicle2005 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI owned the 2005 Accord EX-L 2.4L 4cyl for exactly two years. Then I took a direct hit in the driver's door from an SUV going 40-50+ mph - and walked away on a cane three days later! Not many sedan car owners can say that!! I have only 2 hairline fractures in my pelvis, which should heal in 6 to 12 weeks. I'm definitely buying another Accord. I also had this vehicle on three New England trips of 3,000 to 5,000 miles each. Very comfortable ride, easy handling. The leather and dual climate controls preempted those temp-related spousal fights so it's worth the extra $1,000 in price.
Best Features1) the SAFETY performance! 2) the 4cyl seems just as powerful as a V6 so save the gas mileage and buy a 4cyl.
Worst FeaturesQuirks: 1) the sunroof controls on the lower left of dash instead of against roof; 2) dashboard lights turn on bright when key put in ignition so you might forget to actually turn on headlinghts at night (and when you do, the dashboard lights dim).
