Well, I did "shop around" and yes I could have gotten something like a 2000 Taurus, but I can tell you this is a MUCH better car. This 95 is in better shape then many 2000's or 2001's. Although I have a feeling your partial to American cars.

I hope you have better luck with your Honda then I have. I have had quite a few and lately the transmission woes have prompted me to buy domestic. I cannot believe the Acura TL especially giving me such difficuties. My earlier Hondas were excellent... and the Legend fantastic. It's a shame they lost a great customer. I bought 2 new GM's alone this year.

Whoever said the comment about "You should have bought an American car because money and last blah blah blah". You are so incredibly wrong. I have owned 10 cars, domestic cars are junk, and imported cars aren't. I wish it was the other way around. The other day my friend paid $13,000 for a Lincoln LS that is literally falling apart; that said, American-made doesn't mean quaility. Buy a Honda, it will be cheaper and will last you THREE TIMES as longer than ANY domestic. This is the reason why Ford is bankrupt.

My parents Lincolns have been exceptional however they buy them new ... Navigators and Town Cars. They are great on trips. I am not a big fan of older luxury cars import or domestic as the invariably cost a great deal when they age.

12:35...what years are your imports? What is the latest late model domestic you have owned within the past 3 years to document and what basis do you have to condemn all Fords? Why is the F-150 the largest selling vehicle in the U.S.A.?

Oh I get it. Now American quality has skyrocketed in the past three years and the previous century they just "didn't get it right". Please.

It's going to take at least ten years of PROVEN quality before American manufacturers are going to gain any type of credibility. And the reviews of 2006 American cars and trucks on this site aren't glowing 100%, if 50%.

And you can't bring up the F-150 statistic because when you do it means that, following your logic, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry (the bestselling cars in America) have superior quality - something you are trying to disprove.

Fleet sales *cough cough.

I'd rather have a Crown Vic for a company car as a sales rep driving 1000 miles a week than an Accord.

Once you check out the safety record of the Crown Vic you'd change your mind pretty quick. Another one of Ford's "unsafe at any speed" winners.

10:45 I have put over a half million miles on them for work... great car, roomy large trunk for equipment. I owned an Acua TL for weekends by the way. Would not want an Accord for business though.

I bought a 1998 Pontiac Transport Montana. It has cost me 5000 dollars in repair in 2 years. It is a worthless van.

Are you serious? Go ahead and buy an American car which is newer and cheaper. They are cheaper for a reason, and Honda's and Toyota's hold their value for a reason. I am 44 and have owned 28 vehicles, some of each. I just love cars, and I still would buy a 3 year old Honda as opposed to a new domestic. Plus, don't knock Honda or Toyota, they put a lot of Americans to work here in this country. The Toyota full size pickup has more American content than the Ford Explorer.
