Is that rosewood/red interior? We had the very same car before being totaled in a parking lot of all places! It had $14,000 damage from being slammed from behind and then into a lightpole! We got our 1993 EX then, and kept it for years.

Yes, Dark red interior. I had that car for 12 years, and 140,000 miles. It was a great car, and I still miss it. But after 12 years, I thought we deserved a new one. After that car, I was hooked on Honda. When I decided to shop for a new car, I was thinking Odyssey, then I test drove the EX V6 Accord, and I never looked back. Hooked again.

Ah, I'll always miss our 1993 (maroon/grey interior) Accord EX Automatic. I grew up with that car! We traded it on an Odyssey in 2000 (it had 110,000 miles and still got $6,000 trade in), and it was never the same!

I live down a busy street. So I made a sign, at put it (92 Accord EX) out by the road. Then I went to my brother's house. 10 minutes later, my wife calls. "Someone wants the car". So I go back home (1.5 miles) and sold the car, all within the hour. The Kelly Blue Book on it was $3,500 (140,000 miles, no oil leaks, and everything worked) but I would not have sold it for that much. I got $5,000 for it, and I still hated to see them drive away in it. You can become very attached to a car, after so many years of faithful service. The guy who bought it from me got it for his daughter, to drive to school in. He said he passed my house every day, and noticed how well I took care of it. All that TLC paid off.
#118 of 123 Voice commands

Be careful tallman1 with the voice commands. If you yell BITE ME, the car actual bites. Belive me it happened to me.
On a serious note, I learned if you do not yell, and give the command clearly, it ususally works very well. It takes a short while. I think the voice command feature is great.

Well then by all means, never swear at it with young children in the car!
I use it off and on. I don't like the way the radio cuts out when you use it but it does come in handy. Saying "Trip Computer" can be easier than pressing "Info" and then "OK". With the great summer we've had here in the Pacific NW, open roof and windows sort of prevent me from using it much.

I think it needs to know how to bite THEM. You know, "them" people who are irritating us because they are so absorbed in extraneous activities other than driving that they are in the way of those of us who prioritize driving safely over... well, I should stop here before this turns into an off-topic rant.

I wish there was a easier way to change the fan speed.
I don't know about models with nav. But without nav, it's easy to increase the fan speed while in "Auto" mode. You just turn the temperature down to low. The A/C automatically switches to recirculate and high fan, then switches back when you turn the temp back to normal (72).
