anselmo os right about the EPA paint standards.
frag235---the way Hondas are designed, they are prone to paint chips. In the summer, use a nose mask. There is a protective plastic strip that is transparent that covers the front end of the Accord that protects the paint.

Thanks to the efforts of the Center for Auto Safety, we are able to provide you with the vehicle complaints on file with the National Highway for Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Each year, thousands of Americans call their government to register complaints about their vehicles. The federal government collects this information but has never released it to the general public. The complaint index is based on a ratio of the number of complaints for each vehicle to the sales of that vehicle.
MODEL COMPLAINT INDEX RATIO Audi A6 23,183 Mercury Cougar 20,829 Honda Passport 18,049 Lexus SC300/400 16,671 Kia Sportage 14,100 Mitsubishi Galant 13,808 Isuzu Rodeo 13,692 Chrysler LHS 12,459 Honda Odyssey 12,032 Jeep Grand Cherokee 11,881 Volkswagen Passat 10,458 Mazda Miata 10,091 Mercury Villager 9,113 Volkswagen Golf 7,971 Pontiac Montana 7,957 Pontiac Grand Am 7,916 Cadillac Catera 7,735 Chevrolet Tracker 7,572 Ford Windstar 7,533 Saab 9-3 7,365 Chevrolet Venture 7,147 Chrysler 300M 7,131 Oldsmobile Intrigue 7,060 Lincoln Navigator 6,962 Oldsmobile Alero 6,952
