I've owned and driven many cars in my lifetime and I must say that my Accord is by far the most satisfying car I've owned. I grew tired of my 2002 Acura RSX Type-S and wanted to upgrade to something with still a sporting nature, but also more comfortable.
I bought my 2004 Accord Coupe V6 6-spd with just 100,000 miles in August of 2012. After several months of searching, It was the ONLY Accord coupe V6 6-spd I could find in my area of the southwest at that time. It was in desperate need of visual TLC. The paint was horrid, trim peeling, headlights oxidized, and the window tint was separating. I have a photo uploaded of it in this state so you can get an idea of what I was dealing with. After lots of patience and labor, I managed to get it back to nearly showroom condition. Since I purchased it, I've been averaging 1,500 miles a month because it's such a joy to travel in. At this rate, I'm looking forward to achieving 300,000 miles and maybe even 500,000 in the far future.
I have created a blog which will highlight journeys, modifications and milestones in my Accord:
