Both excellent, both similar.


What *do* you know?

Sedan or coupe?

4 or 6?

Have you owned Toyota or Honda before?

If you believe the GM commercials, Malibu is better. Of course, I own and
Accord and would not have it any other way.

Have owned both. Accord is a driver's car. Camry is like driving your front
room. One is fun, the other will get you there in perfect comfort. Take
your choice....

When we bought the 2007 in Jan 2007, the Accord kind of sucked. But
with the 2009s, the Camry is nice, but the Accord has caught up in
some ways.

For the money and the specific audience, though, the Camry is still a
slight winnder. Both are aimed at that "typical" upper middle class
that are almost ready to buy a Lexus or an Infinity. We almost bought
an IS250, but the back seat was only a tad bigger than my (now
lamented) 308GT4. Say four bags of groceries or two small coworkers
headed to the sandwich shop 3 miles away.

If you believe the GM commercials, the Malibu gets better mileage. If
you believe the satisfaction rankings, the Malibu comes out behind.

Dillon, you're misquoting RAH. The quote is actually:

I have a Ford Fusion (58,000 miles - 0 problems) and think it is
better than any of them (especially if you consider cost). However, of
the two (Camry and Accord), I'd go with the Accord. Camries are too
much like Buicks - a car intended for a blue haired old lady. They are
so dull you can fall asleep just walking past one in the parking lot.
And given Toyota declining quality, I think you'd be less likely to
get an Accord with problems (just be sure you take care of it -
Honda's don't take well to the sort of neglect Buick owners are famous
for).

Okay. I have no idea which of my multitude of Lazurus Long books to
find it and was too lazy to do so and instead drew it from a memory
that, after two years of the most intesive schooling I've ever
experienced, is shot if it doesn't have to do with shooting a six view
t-spine. I'll correct it in a second.

Since you are also a fan, I just found out that "Time for the Stars"
is back in print. This is the first SF book I read and got me into
reading so seriously that I'm surrounded by over 3000 volumes. Of
course, Carol helps that number. Anyone want an autographed copy of
"Finding Mr. Right"? I have two, since the author is a personal
firend and Corgi owner. Want a Sandra Brown book? I know them (they
were news and weatherchick in Tyler befoe they got married and I threw
their paper).

There are a number of Heinlein's out-of-print books that are coming
out in the next two years.

Excellent. I will look for "Time for the Stars"; Heinlein is one of my
favorite authors. The quote is from the notebooks of Lazarus Long, two
interludes in "Time Enough For Love".
