What do you drive?
#1
I proudly drive my 2004 corolla. It's supposed to get ~38MPG on the highway and 29 in the city. I only manage to get about 28-31 in it, but that's still not bad. Has 145K miles on it at the moment and runs great.

Right now I am driving a 2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport.

You could get a much better car for what I've spent on it. Sad

My wife's driving a 2003 Accord. Good, solid car. 14 years old and still rolling like a champ.

My buddy has one with 210K miles on it and it still runs like it's new, doesn't burn oil or anything. As long as you don't get the V6 ones they are solid cars. Honda's transmissions are notorious for having a few issues when combined with the V6 engines... :/

Nothing unique about 'em but hey they are good cars!

ah but that's why you want the manual with the V6, hell the K7 4 cylendar with the manual transmission is supposedly able to keep up with the V6 provided you know how to drive it right... 

there's a reason the 03 Accord is considered a D class race car.
and yeah, solid car, no problems, getting up to 280k miles, cost me $8K but it was worth it, previous owner was a mechanic.

one more thing I've noticed about the K7 4 cylendar with the automatic, when you get over 90mph it seems to go into a cruise mode and sits around 3K RPM even after passing 100mph, could be the way the previous owner (the mechanic) geared it but it's still kinda awesome.
I've not gone any faster because that's crazy and I don't have a test track, and it was only for a few min in an area that my cb told me there was no cops.
thnx truckers.

I went up to 130 in my civic one time on the interstate. Was a little fast, but hey, it's a rite of passage! My corolla won't go past 100 before it has trouble keeping up... Tongue

And they make V6's with the manual? I didn't know that. That's a good find.

There are PROs/CONs to each, but or me, buying was definitely the right decision. I had to rent for years and buying in those years would have been... risky and unpredictable.

Depends on the situation for everyone.
