Re: 2005 Accord ... Should I?

My advice is to take a serious look at the new GM models for a few
reasons: Honda quality is in a uncontrollable spin due to high volume
requirements, GM has been topping quality lists lately, not the
Japanese makers, Honda insurance rates are skyrocketing due to the
teens with the civics, GM fuel mileage tends to be better than Accord
(Malibu, even Impala beats it - both nice cars). Right now GM, not
Honda is near the top of the quality satisfaction rating. In luxury
markets this translates to Cadillac stealing top three spots over
Lexus! Check it out for yourself: http://www.jdpowers.com

Hardly. Caddies are earning good reputations right now, but after a
few years the bells & whistles will start to break as usual. This is
not the price point that was being discussed, in any case. The Buick
Century was turning into quite a reliable car; GM corrected that error
by redesigning or killing it in the last year or so. I forget which.

GM is shit, populated by engineers who are really just bean counters.
There is, and will be, no comparison between a GM (Cadillac or
otherwise) and an Accord after 8 or 10 years of use.

I hear that the number of defective Oldsmobiles is way down.
