Well, my 14 year old Honda Accord with 195,000 miles suffered a
catastrophic mechanical failure, due to the right front wheel
colliding with a concrete highway barrier. This caused upper and lower
control arm damage, axle damage, and other damaged bits. The estimate
for repair was 3300 USD. As the car is only worth 1900 USD, it's
toast. Yes, I could fix it my self, but I am too old and stiff to much
enjoy that anymore.
Consequently. we are in the market for a newish 2004 - 2006 Accord
with roughly equivalent trim (EX). I am leaning toward the 4 cylinder
V-Tech engine as the 4 cylinder was more than adequate for the Accord
we had and the new ones are not that much bigger.
At the risk of boring everyone, I may share some of our shopping
experiences with the group. One immediate difference I noticed from 13
years ago is that there is a wealth of information available on the
Internet. How much of that information is reliable is yet to be
