Search for new honda ends rather quickly.

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Elliot Richmond, Jul 6, 2007.

  1. Armed with all of the information I had gleaned from this group and
    armed with NADA values and CARFAX reports, I went in search of a
    suitable Honda Accord. I found my first choice sitting on the lot,
    negotiated a price, arranged financing, and drove it home. It is a
    2006 Honda Accord with the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder with all of the
    gadgets I wanted, plus alloy wheels.

    This was a faster and more pleasant experience than I anticipated.

    Enjoy it! I've put 183,000 miles on my '01 and the only 2 non-scheduled
    items it's needed thus far are the EGR service ($350) and a wheel bearing

    Other than that, nothing but fluid changes, tires, brakes and a timing belt.

  3. Always in the last place you look! Auto or manual tranny?

  4. Well, I know many on this Usenet group loves manual transmissions, but
    spousal unit does not. So we have the five speed automatic. I know
    the V6s had transmission problems for a couple of years, but I never
    heard of any problems with the I4s. It shifts smoothly, accelerates
    briskly, downshifts appropriately, and so forth.

    I have an I4 06 coupe auto -- after owning a Prelude. Find the car very
    pleasant and the I4 gives excellent performance. You don't need the V6.

    Unfortunately, "a" says his is a dog on performance therefore you must
    be lying! For shame tww1491, didn't your parents raise you properly!<g>

  8. Some sort of silvery color, like a million others.

    I am 66 years old and have owned everything from a 64 XKE to big block
    Vettes. I know what I am talking about. I resent you comment about my
    upbringing. Yours is obvious.

  10. He was joking. Some troll by the name of "a" has been disputing the
    calculated MPG of some of our Hondas, claiming that they were bullshit. I
    don't remember if it was on this newsgroup or on

    HTM is correct, tww1491. I wasn't taking a slap at you, just rubbing
    "a's" nose it a bit. I believe you and it's likely that most everyone
    else (except "a") does as well.

    Go back and read my original post once more. The <g> stands for a big grin!

    Tell me about it. I got the silver, but felt guilty about it.

    The number of monochrome cars on the road these days is astounding -
    white, silver, dark grey, black.

    We have that 2.4 liter, 140 khz motor in one of our Accords in Australia as
    well and I must say it's a beautiful motor as is the 5 speed auto.
    Mine is blue pearl, a good color and not nearly as common as those others
    mentioned above.
