My 05 Accord is still running like new, a year after I got it.
I have put a lot of miles on it.
I'd like to know from Civic owners if they have done extensive driving
comparisons between Civics and Accords.
Likewise, I'd like to know from Accord owners about Civic experience.
I'm wondering if I'll be sorry if I trade/sell my Accord, to get a
