#3387 of 3776 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry 2011
May 24, 2010 (8:54 am)
Hi. I am new to this forum, but I am in a quandry over which car to choose!
I currently own a Honda Accord Special edition 2002. We also have a Honda Civic 2003 so I would say we have been okay with Hondas.
However, we decided to look at both the 2011 Honda Accord and the Camry this weekend. I like the spacious feel of the Camry, and they're giving some pretty nice deals now, but I am S.C.A.R.E.D about the recent problems Toyota was having, and the manner in which they first dealt with said problems.
I would buy the Honda based on loyalty, but find the car seems a little bit smaller.
Salesman for Toyota gave me the usual talk about how much quieter the Camry is because of the extra padding in hood, trunk, and near the wheel areas. They actually had Honda Accord on the lot for people to compare theirs with the competition.
What I did not like about the Camry was the foot hand brake? Anyone have a problem with that?
Anyway, how safe do you think the Camry is in 2010/2011 compared to 2009?
Would anyone here be scared to buy a Toyota, or am I letting too much of the news bother me?
I am frozen, literally about which to buy.

I was getting 2 quotes from Honda dealerships for hondacare for my new odyssey.
I got a quote of 1130 for an 8 year, 120k mile plan. I asked if they could do any better since another dealer was at the same price, except they were giving me a $30 credit towards accessories, and he said that If I could wait till the middle of June there would be some great discounts. Of course I can wait, But Im wondering if anyone knows what he's talking about.
#3390 of 3776 2010 Accord EX Extended Warranty
May 29, 2010 (2:43 pm)
I live in North Carolina. What's the best price I should pay for an 8 year 100,000 mile extended warranty ($0 deductable, $100 deductable). Dealer I purchased car from wants (for Hondacare) $1,195 for an 8 yr 100,000 mile warranty ($100 deductable). No deductable would be $250 more. Dealer said something about Honda extended warranty prices going up next week - is that true?

Don't put much stock in that. That is, most likely, a salesman's story. The business office person who handled your papers gets a cut from that. I am sure that there are other cuts that go around. It is a lucrative thing for the dealership. If you decide to take it, I would negotiate on that. On a 2006, I refused to take the warranty and it came down $200.

Just go to one of the online dealers such as:
They'll give you a quote on the same Honda Care that will probably be less than your local dealer.

If you havent replaced your tires yet, try Bridgestone Turanza's if they're available. Ive had them on Honda's before and they worked great for all season.

Is that a good price?
#3395 of 3776 IS HONDACARE THE SAME AS BUMBER 2 BUMPER
Jun 01, 2010 (8:20 am)
Can anyone tell me if Hondacare is the same as if I had bumper to bumper coverage?
Dealer being very vague and not clear.
Probably on purpose.

No... the extended warranty is not bumper to bumper... I'm not even sure I would characterize the original warranty that way.. but, for certain, there are more exclusions with HondaCare, compared to the original warranty.
