Default which is better: accord or civic?

I need to know which car is more of a teen age car. my parents will be buying a 2008 civic sedan EX or an 2008 accord sedan LX. I want to know which car is better because this will be my car in almost 3 years. (im turning 14 in july). I need a good car that will last, so any 2008 civic or 2008 accord owners, please answer!

Civic is more of teen age car. But, Accord did slightly better in a crash test. And, also it's heavier, so it suppose to be safer...http://www.iihs.org/ratings/ratingsb...s.aspx?id=300I don't own any of the cars, though, so don't know how they drive. I've had experience with a 93 Civic and a 97 Accord. They were pretty good.

I would wait for the 09 Accord. There will be an option of a diesel engine. The 08+ Accords look better than the Civic and are safer. The diesel will be rated at around 42mpg as well, so it would be a better investment than the 08 Accord Lx.If the 09 Accord Deisel is not an option at all, I'd go with the Civic. It will have better mileage and resale.-Chris
