    I’ll start off. I’m Larry and I have two Hondas - ‘15 Accord EX and the wife’s ride - ‘17 Civic EX-T. I’ll post some pics when I get around to washing/waxing them in a few weeks.

    I’ve had good luck with the 4 Hondas I have owned.

    We've had six Hondas and two Acuras, but none currently.

    Had very good experiences with all of them.

    I’ve liked Honda since receiving a Christmas present of a ‘71 Honda CT70 mini bike in ‘73 when I was 13. I have owned many makes including Acura, Audi, Cadillac, Chevy, Chrysler, Ford, Mazda, Mercury, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac, VW. In the past 10 years we have had multiple Hondas and have been very pleased with their driving dynamics and low cost of upkeep.

    Did you have a favorite?

    Of the Hondas, my current Accord has been a great car. It is a well rounded performer and has been very economical to maintain and fuel. I have surprised myself in that I’ve owned this car longer than any other, 5.5 years and 87k, and have no current plans to replace it with a newer car. I always look forward to driving it.

    My 2007 Accord EX L has passed 500,000 miles.  One starter, two A/C condenser fans, and the oil pressure solenoid.  Castrol oil and Fram filters.  Of course all the wear items etc...  No leaks at all!  Everything works.  I'm skeptical on the CVT standard now. Having no transmission so far.  Highway miles 90 percent of mileage.  Terribly upset with the airbag recall.  Both of front airbags replaced.  Honda should end that nightmare soon.


  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAMember Posts: 9,372
    Wow, 500,000! My powers of deduction tell me you are a believer in regular preventative maintenance! :)

    And you certainly don't sit still very often...heh

    There must be some long road trip stories

    That is impressive. I understand being upset about the air bag fiasco. On the positive side your 12 year old air bag components are being replaced with fresh new pieces.

    Not just Honda. My 2006 BMW has had both airbags replaced. Half of the cars sold in the US used Takata airbags.

    There are no longer any lease programs for the 2018 models.

    WHY DOES THE 2016 HONDA CIVIC LX HAVE TO BE SUCH A BASIC BIT**?!.

    Having an issue? What's it doing?
  • benjaminhbenjaminh Member Posts: 6,096
    I've admired Hondas since I was a kid, but the first one we owned was a 2002 Accord LX 5-speed manual in blue that we got new at a big discount. Drove the 2002 until 2010 and about 90k miles. Our next Honda, which overlapped with the first one, was a 2008 Accord EXL navi in white, and by this time manuals were getting rare. Had to special order a manual from the factory, but got that one after a lot of waiting and enjoyed it for 8 years and 80k or so miles. My wife got a 2013 Accord EXL navi in red which we loved, but we traded that in at 60k or so on a 2018 Honda CR-V also in red that we currently own. I traded in my 08 Accord on a 2016 Accord EX in white that had for the first time AndroidAuto. That 2016 Accord was a great car except for one thing—after being spoiled by the sound systems in EXL Accords the one in the EX seemed pretty bad. And so I traded in the 2016 Accord for a 2018 Acura TLX, which I still have today.

    Why so many Hondas? Well, before that we'd had other brands, including a 1987 VW Jetta and a 1988 Oldsmobile 98, both of which we'd gotten used, and both of which were quite unreliable and often in the shop. My wife and I were ready for reliable, and so far our Hondas and our one Acura (knock on wood) have always been that.
