I hit 80k on my Accord today. Still have the original brakes and the OEM Bridgestones. The warmer weather has given me a couple of tanks that were in the 33-35 mpg range in combined driving. Still have never had a tank below 28 mpg. No major issues at all. I love this car.

Hey, everyone! My name's Chris, and I've been lurking around these forums since 2007 or so and had considered buying a car several times since then (something always stopped me from going through with it), with the Accord always on my list. Now I can finally say that I'm an Accord owner.
I just bought a 2007 Honda Accord EX 4 cylinder model with the Carbon Bronze Pearl Exterior and Ivory interior, and I just love how it looks inside and out. It was a lease return and only had 35,000 miles. It was in pretty good shape but had a couple of scratches that were buffed out. Prior to this, I drove a 1998 Dodge Neon for 6 years that has served me very well (I know, shock!), but I felt I needed an upgrade.
Prior to driving the Accord, I test drove a 2006 Toyota Camry, 2008 Ford Fusion, and 2009 Hyundai Sonata, and I felt the Honda was by far the best overall package. I found its engine to be the smoothest and most refined, the ride very solid- it was firm, well-planted, yet more comfortable than I was expecting, the interior to be the best-looking and highest quality, and the steering offered just enough feel without being heavy. I also drove a 2008 Honda Accord, and while I think it looks better on the outside than the 2007, it was a little too big, and I wanted to buy the last year of a design.

Welcome, Chris. IMHO, the 06-07 Accords are great cars. Carbon Bronze is a nice color too!
