This car has been a great investment and I would buy another Honda in a heart-beat!
In 10 years, almost nothing other than regular maintenance. The driver-side power window motor is about to die, but I'm surprised it took this long!!
This car rides very well, is very reliable, and looks great! I bought it in a hurry when my previous Honda Civic was totaled in an accident (thanks to a red-light running Ford Explorer). Purchased from someone in sales, the Accord had a lot of miles when it was just 2 years old, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Visibility is great in this car, which helps a lot in congested, city driving. Lots of seating control allows me (and any other guest driver) to establish a great driving position. Still looks great - people are always surprised to find out its age. Have had a few parking lot scrapes and one fender-bender; the repairs don't show much with the light gold color. Leather interior helps... a little Armour All and it keeps a crisp look even at the ripe old age of 12.
I sometimes miss having a little bit sportier-looking car (like the Civic Coupe that got destroyed), but I must not miss it too much because I'm rolling year 10 with the Accord this month. I'm at 201,000 miles now and planning to make it to 300,000.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
