We just bought an Accord and I couldn't be happier

Mrs. Bernse and I were not planning on buying another vehicle until our house is paid off… which will probably be another 5 years. However, both her Grand Am and my Cherokee are in fine condition so it wasn’t a big deal.

However, my mother finally decided (after talking about it of and on for the past while) to part with her 2000 Accord to help her and Dad purchase a new 2003 Chev/GMC 2500HD Duramax Diesel so they can tow their newly purchased 5th wheel.

So she asked if we were still interested in the Accord, which we were. So, we made a deal for her babied, garage kept, like brand new 2000 Accord SE with 30,000KM for a great price that we couldn’t pass up.

It’s only a 4 cyl, but its got 150HP and a silky-smooth 5spd. Car is totally loaded other than no auto (which I am fine with) and no leather. I go and pick it up this weekend. I’m pretty happy about it as it is a beautiful car and a dream to drive. We were looking at buying a new Impreza in a few years but that will be on hold now.

Just wanted to share :slight_smile:

We’ve got a 2000 Accord, the first car we ever bought new.

It’s got 77,000 miles on it, and it still feels new. There’s no way you can go wrong, picking up a low-mileage, well-maintained Accord, especially if it’s a sweetheart deal like this. Enjoy!

Well, I just changed the oil in it and while I had it in my shop bay I took a couple pics: http://www.villagephotos.com/pubbrowse.asp?selected=205059

Not the best quality, but it gives an idea.

Its a great car. I did a 480KM drive last night @ 125Km/h and it took almost exactly 1/2 a tank… and I had about a 40-60km/h headwind most of the time!

I love it!

Uploaded some new pics to the site… if anyone gives a crap… :wink:

Great car! As for the no auto/leather, Mr. Legend and I actually had enough trouble finding a slightly used car without those “features” that we ended up buying a new one instead.


Congrats! Back when I had a company car, I drove a 1999 Accord, followed by a 2000 accord. They were automatics (not my preference, but that’s what they gave us), but were completely sweet cars.
After I finish grad school next year (and get a real job again), I’m probably going to look for a used Accord (perhaps a Civic) and give the EZ Bake (dark exterior, dark interior Suzuki Swift with no A/C) to my brother - he loves it and would be thrilled to have it as a second car.

My friend got a Honda recently but within a week someone took off that big H on the trunk lid. I guess kids do that. I told her to glue it on next time :slight_smile:

I’ve got a 1998 Accord. Great car. First car I ever got new. I kinda wish we’d gotten a Civic, as they are cuter, but it’s nice to have the room.

Nice wheels, bernse! Sounds like you got a good deal. I recently bought a 2000 car too, but it had 120,000 clicks on the odometer. Then again, it’s a diesel, so it can deal with lots and lots of kilometers before it finally croaks.

I came on my own Accord and I couldn’t be happier.

Did you share a smoke afterwards? :smiley:

We’re on our third Honda (Civic). Love 'em. Dad’s on his second (not counting his Goldwings. Just traded an old one for a new one) My sister and her husband have two (Odessey and an Accord) and my other sister and her husband both drive CR-V’s.

Just a big ol’ Honda family.
