Pugsley (named after the son in the Addams Family) is a blast to drive, with a smooth, eager-to-rev powerplant, sharp handling, and confidence-inspiring 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS. He's also a very comfortable car and terrific on long trips. I will admit, however, that although the ride is nice, it's not quite the Jet Smooth ride of my Impala.
This is my second Accord; my '95 LX coupe served me well for 57,000 trouble-free miles. My sister Susan drove Honey, an '85 Accord sedan for 15 years and nearly 190,000 miles before buying Ramona, a 2001 Odyssey. Her husband Matt drove Maria, a '83 Civic wagon for 14 years and 180,000+ miles before buying Victor, a '97 CR-V. Several of my friends drive Hondas as well; Mark has a '01 Civic EX (replacing an '85 Prelude), and Louis has a '01 CR-V (replacing a '93 Accord SE); and Dan (finally!) recently replaced his Geo Metro with a '97 Civic LX. We're all sold on our Hondas, and I highly recommend them. I consider the Honda Accord what the Chevy Impala was in 1964 -- the best car you can buy for the money.
