Default Accord Vs Civic

If you do not care about size or anything when it comes to a Honda, which is
cheaper to maintain? If one is more than the other is it worth it?

Prolly a civic, they are cheaper to buy, but i would much rather get an
accord. They are faster and have more room plus look better.

A stripper DX Civic will be the cheapest to buy/own/maintain.

The Civic is smaller in size than the Accord and has LESS power than the
Accord. I would still prefer the Accord because it has more power and is
larger. However, If I did not have a well paying full time job, I would
settle for a Civic until I could afford to trade it in on an Accord.

My trusty old Civic '88 accomodates me just fine (I'm 6'1), and provides
enough power to get around, onto freeways and off. It's been pretty much
trouble-free and just recently passed (strict California "Enhanced Area")
smog without any effort. It's taken me places, long drives, short drives,
has carried two bikes (OK, front wheels taken off) in its trunk, and fits
four (not super-sized) people without being totally cramped.

Ask yourself how much power and space you really *need* vs. what you want.
We often make the mistake of confusing the two of them.

I could afford an Accord, but why would I want to buy one?

Jarrett - if you're on a tight budget, take all the additional costs into
account, such as

- insurance
- registration
- gas (if you drive a lot, especially nowadays)

beside the pure cost of the car plus maintenance.

For pure economical reasons, an older (but well-maintained) Civic would be
really hard to beat.

impossible to beat imo! i'm 6'5 and have an 89 hatch for exactly the
same reasons as you, bikes & all! plus, if you live/work in a big city,
having something old & ugly is a huge positive against theft &
vandalism. it's also interesting in the dating dept. if a potential
date looks at my car & starts getting an attitude, i already know she's
not my type.

Good point, too. Even thought I don't necessarily think it's ugly - but that
might be an acquired taste

Excellent point, too!

Hello,
It appears that lots and lots of people must agree with you. I see lots
more Civics than Accords in the town where I live. It's my guess that if
gas prices remain high--that small cars (including Civics) will be more
common that SUVs in the coming years. I have several friends that live
over 40 miles from where they work--it's easy to understand why my friends
and other people that have to drive over 40 miles per day would be more
likely to buy a Civic than an Accord.
