Honda Accord

One of the best selling sedans on the US and the car that put Honda on the mass market map globally.


But is it cool?

Nice to see a new poll Biggster.

However, what is this abomination?

Big seller, well-built, but humdrum fleet fodder which is about as far down the uncool end of the wall as it can get.

Too easy a choice. Is it uncool or seriously uncool?

Just uncool. I drove one for a few weeks back when I lived in Japan and it was fine.

We had several of the previous model on fleet here and I drove a few. Nice for what it is and well-specced at the time. Pure Vanilla in petrol-head terms though.

I'd agree, not cool but well screwed together and pretty reliable by all accounts?

CRV/Jaaag

I'm sure lots of people strolled out of offices and factories at about 5.30pm, got in one, and never even considered for a second the possibility of it not starting. They never thought "What's that knocking noise" or "Why is my temp guage reading high/low/nothing at all". They were home at 6.15 without the merest hint of drama, as usual.

but........

Hell, no.

If ever there was an uber, uber uncool car this almost takes it. Probably one step below a VW Passat in the uncool car table. I've owned both and they are dull. The only difference between the Honda and the VW is reliability. The VW is not and the Honda is ultra reliable, or my two were.

Uncool, however a bloody good car. Not exciting but ......... Bloody good. Well engineered and built and way better than anything to come out of Germany.

Fairly popular with a few of the more sober type RAFTA guys at the hospital I worked at, returning from abroad as a safe, reliable bet for a mode of transport, but of course a pretty dull and uninspiring choice?

Tax free purchases?

Perhaps it was also for a peaceful and assured jaunt home to their married pads after a day servicing screaming Tornado/Typhoon power plants?
