I became a Honda fan because of my parents. My mom had a 1986 CRX and later sold it, but when we needed a sedan for our family she bought a brand new 1991 Honda Accord DX 5 speed manual. We had that car growing up and when I turned 14 that was the car that I learned how to drive in. I hadn't personally owned a Honda until 2006 when I bought a one owner 2002 Acura TL and have loved it like family ever since. I recently bought my 1990 LX Accord in 2009 with 168,000 miles on it for 800 dollars. It was in rough shape but it was mechanically sound and ran amazing well when I found it. In fact, the previous owner had just driven it home from over 50 miles the day I bought it. I had to find a car quick because my 2002 Acura TL was having transmission problems and wasn't reliable on a daily basis. I was frantically searching for a car to just get me by. I knew I wanted a HONDA and I was sold when I first laid eyes on it. It never left me stranded or let down. The first winter of ownership the car had almost bad tires but it somehow plowed its way through the snow and never left me stuck. Only a push from time to time to help it get going. Now its got brand new tires for winter and a set for summer. I've gotten through more snow in this car that even the snowplow drivers have to think I'm crazy for being the only car on the road when only trucks are out driving around. I can say that this car has been amazing to me and my wife, and even thought it needs a little TLC from time to time, I know I can rely on it as my backup car. It was just this year in Sept that it turned over 200,000 miles and I know it will keep going. I will never sell this car and will continue to use it on a daily basis until i reach 1 Million miles!
