I've owned 4 Honda's and won't buy another manufactures car EVER Again. I bought my Accord in Sept. 2004. It had 7 miles on it the day I bought. I've Always used Synthetic Oil and 93 octane from day 1. It's the Best driving car I've ever owned and when I tell my friends how many miles it has, they can't believe it. I've only had to replace the serpentine belt, 5 batteries, 8 light bulbs and I'm currently on my 6th set of tires, changed the transmission fluid 4 times and on my 4th set of brake pads which I've done all the work myself. Not that I don't trust the dealer, I grew up in a family of DIY/shade tree mechanics and love taking the time & Pride in working on my cars.
My wife also has an 05 Odyssey with 129,XXX miles and she LOVES her Honda as much as I love mine. We have 4 boys that are Very active in Many different sports, clubs and activities. My Son, who just turned 16, just bought his first car and you guessed it, it's a 1990 Honda Accord four door with 276,XXX miles.
We took our last family vacation in our Odyssey in December of 2012 to Disney World. What a Great driving vehicle. I was averaging 36 MPG and if it wasn't for the DVD entertainment center, I don't know that my wife and I would have made it to Florida and back :)
If your going to buy a New or Used car, make it a Honda. You'll be Proud of what you drive and Happy you did.
Thanks Honda for manufacturing such Great cars.
