VEHICLE STORY

This is my sixth car ever. It was leased, then purchased after I spent all my money on used European cars...It was a "settle" situation to get myself something reliable and long-lasting and with a warranty, given where I was at life. However, I made special care to choose wisely on the car I was going to "settle" for. I have otherwise stuck to used, old Mercedes-Benzes, Jaguars, and BMWs. And thus, this car was selected by process of elimination. If it were to be easy on my life and wallet and new, it would probably have to front-wheel drive and mainstream. But I also wanted to get the best I could get. After cross shopping cars like the Mazda6, the Nissan 370Z, Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8, and factoring issues such as insurance rates, this Honda Accord Coupe matched my needs/likes/wants. I ended up deeply falling in love with the car (always loved V6 Hondas/Acuras).
