I bought the 2012 Honda Accord with 16,000 miles on it. I declined the extended warranted figuring that with the low milage on the "world's most dependable car," I wouldn't need it. Boy was I wrong! I took the car in for routine oil change at 21,000 miles and mentioned that it sounded like the belts were squealing. I turns out that there was a leak in the power steering column and I needed to replace the entire rack and pinion steering machinery to the tune of $1,400! Talk about sticker shock
First of all I love my Honda Accord! This is my 5th Honda and 3rd Honda Accord. These cars are great. I call my Honda my baby Beemer. They run great, they are smooth, fast, quick response, comfortable. Honda's are reliable and they have a great trade in value. I can't say enough. This is a great great car and you will be happy if you get one!
Honda makes SAFE, dependable, well-built vehicles that get great gas mileage! The Accord has plenty of interior and cargo space. None are built for luxury, smooth ride or quiet cabin (which are the only reasons I traded in)... But the Accord does have great interior and cargo space. The benefit: Having a vehicle that can take some wear and tear from kids, and you don't have to stress over expensive repairs. Parts are priced well... but mainly because they rarely need reparing!!
