"I bought the honda accord new in 1998. Have had no problems with it other than the normal maintainence. I drive up and down a one mile dirt road full of pot holes everyday...still, with all that bouncing around through all four seasons, this car has held up beautifully. In fact, I am looking at a Pilot for my wife and the next car I get will be either a Ridgline or another Accord. I am convinced that Honda is ahead of the competition."
