Default Honda Accord Recommendations - First-Time Buyer


1) I'm considering buying a recent model Honda Accord. I want a sun/moon
roof, good highway mileage (4-cylinder?), and leather seats. From what I
can tell, that would limit me to the EX-L models? Correct?

2) Are any recent years considered best? Is there a particular model
that is more sought after or one to be avoided?

3) Also, what are the best sources for searching for used Accords
online? I've discovered cars.com which lists a fair amount for our city
(St. Louis, MO). I'm also monitoring several of the local Honda dealers
websites. Any other major car search sites that you can suggest?

Thanks. -- Rik

ps: I drive very little (less than 5,000 miles per year) if that makes
any difference in recommendations.

hondacars.com will help keep you up to date on your dealers'
inventories, specifically Certified Used cars.

I like Certified Used cars. Great values can be had.

craigslist.org (its pointers will quickly narrow the search down to
your city). But you absolutely must get autocheck.com or carfax.com
(more expensive; same service) and do a title check with any craig's
list car. Lots of multi-owner cars, odometer tampering and salvage
vehicles are sold on Craig's List, and owners plead ignorance to same.

Increasingly new car dealers are advertising their used cars on
autotrader.com .

I think the best way to go is with a new car dealer, one-owner car
(properly documented that it is one-owner). You pay more than the same
car advertised on Craig's List, but this is because it is one-owner.
