After that setback, I realized that there weren't really any cars out there in the Subaru line with the miles I was looking for in the price range I wanted, so I started re-thinking what I was looking for, and ended up right back where I was before...looking at Honda Accords.
|My 2001 Accord at Afton Mountain Vineyards|
Since I purchased the car I've driven approximately 670 miles, and can say this: the car is wonderful. There are small things I miss from the previous one, but overall the decision to take this car over the others out there was good. One thing that surprised me is I really did not sacrifice any utility in going for the Accord Coupe over the Accord Sedan. The coupe looks better, but other than that everything from the Sedan carried over, including the trunk space, which I feel is actually more usable in the coupe than the Sedan because of how the opening is cut.
The first 670 miles actually included the car's first road trip with me. I'm working on planning a few more for this summer and for my winter break from school which is coming up. I won't write much on the first road trip as I wrote about everywhere I went back when I had the Volvo. You can read the post here. I will, however, have a more complete updated review on Afton Mountain Vineyards posted in these pages shortly. As it is in final review and drafting it won't be released until next week sometime.
