Bought my first Honda (Accord Hatchback) in '85 and have had Hondas ever since.

In the years since then I've seen friends with BMWs, Mercedes, GM, Ford all get increasingly frustrated with cars that were fine when new, but started falling apart on average two years out. Toyotas less so, but not lately, unfortunately.

I expect to hear the same in coming years about Hyundai/Kia. We shall see.

Looks aren't everything; I've always appreciated Honda's understated design styling, it's the kind of look that remains appealing for decades.

Congratulations on your new car! Civic is really the sweet spot for Hondas these days.

Launch the NSX, then bring back the Prelude! <g>
