Default Search for new honda ends rather quickly.

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
($225).

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

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.

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.

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 rec.autos.makers.honda.
