Hi. I recommend toyota camry too.
I have 2006 toyota camry le v6. I bought brand new in 2006. It is now 180,000 miles. I mostly drive on highway. It is the best investment I ever made on my first brand new car. The camry never broke down on me. I still use it today for work, because I get excellent gas mileage.. Winter/ snow season, I use my honda pilot 4wd.
I just do normal oil change, brake pad ( changed one time ), timing belt, transimison, and other minor stuff.. and the camry didn't consume alot of engine oil. like honda engine.
city/highway driving. I get about 28 mpg. using shell or chevron octane 87
mostly highway driving with using cruise control. 32.5 mpg. shell or chevron octane 87.. I drive 65 mph.
so honey, it is your choice to pick either camry or honda. Please feel to ask anything about honda/toyota.

I owned 2009 Honda accord exl and had2011 campy le rental for a week and drove 700 miles. I agree with what smarty 666 that camry is very quiet and smooth. I am amazed how quiet the car is even with 4cyl. The suspension is also pretty soft making the ride quite plush. The steering however doesn't give much feedback. But for practical purpose it's a more comfortable car for long distance traveling. Accord seat has more lateral support but the bottom cushion is a bit hard which maybe uncomfortable after 3+hour.

We ended up buying the 2011 Camry. I hope it performs well over time. I do miss my Accord, but then again, I get attached to cars!

I just made the decision and so far (500 miles) I am very happy with it. Drove 2011 Accord, Altima and Camry. I liked the long sloping hood of the Honda but couldn't take the dashboard clutter. The Altima engine seemed to strain during acceleration. The real clincher was when a friend who manages a Hertz dealership advised me that the Camry is the best car in it's class. He drives / processes hundreds of cars each year and I relied upon his expertise. This particular Hertz location also has an 'open to the public' car maintenance facility so they are privy to every conceivable car quirk. The other neat thing about the 4cy engine is that it comes with 0-W20 full synthetic oil and the change interval is 10,000 miles. In closing I say that the XLE is the finest car I have owned. My opinions.
