2004 Honda Accord: oldie but a goodie.
2004 Honda Accord
My car is an older model of the Honda Accord. For its age and miles, it performs quite well. It is manual, and so the clutch has been replaced several times but always works fully after being replaced. Shifting is smooth, cruise control works and is useful on the highway, and the emergency brake is highly effective when parking on hills. Beyond how the car drives, the seats are leather, and still pristine. The air conditioner works quickly and effectively, with the exception of when the car is idling (using the ac while idling will cause the car to start to overheat, but the minute you start driving, the temperature returns to normal). One of the greatest downsides of driving an older car is the lack of aux/Bluetooth capabilities. The charging ports and CD player/radio work perfectly fine, but connecting your phone to everything has become so common that it feels odd not having that capability. Overall, it is a very reliable car that is made many long trips. When problems arise, they haven't been fatal, and they are not incredibly surprising or frustrating. Older cars require additional vigilance when it comes to maintenance, but regularly rotating the car's tires, changing the oil, etc.. Makes driving this car manageable.
