Default Its only been 2 hours but I miss my SUV

For the 1st time since 1996, I do not have an SUV. Lease was up and was way over on miles, it was time for the wife to get the new vehicle (I got the last 2). Got a great deal on an '07 Accord demo - its hers. I am now in the old Accord. Where I am goint to put all the boat and fishing gear, and damn I feel low to the road. I will probably live to regret this, or have to buy another SUV in the next few months. Just when I thought I was through with payments. I hope I can sleep tonight.

My Admiral will never go back to a regular car, and she will never have anything smaller than a Chevy Tahoe....

I am seriously considering getting rid of my 06 accord for a suv. Honda has a chance to make right with me on this accord but from what I have read on the internet they have become just another fat corp sticking it to the consumer with inferior product

Oh my... Two Honda Accords... That is what both of you drive? One has to go, there's plenty of sweet SUV's in SE FL to trade the one you're stuck with.... Tell the bride a nice XXX SUV would be a wonderful Valentines day gift.

It could be worse.....you could have downgraded into a minivan with fake wood accents. At least in the Accord nobody will see you and tell your other friends about your demise.

It could be even worse than that...you could be riding a moped with a paper bag strapped to the luggage rack:-)). Nothin says I got a DUI clearer.

That car brings back a fond memory.... When I was in my 20's I used to.... date a girl with one just like that from my gym. They had pretty strong seats in them

Driving is a contest between sober, good drivers (the minority). And all the others on the road (the majority).

So I want one of these (photo below) over 5000 lbs. of safety, a real tank.

1st day back and forth to work w/ the '99 accord. 101k miles and it runs like the day it cme out of the factory, but I feel like I am driving a go-kart, looking up at other cars. I'm just too big to be comfortable in it, and I am used to driving an SUV, was cruising on the sawgrass expressway and looked down at the speedo - 95 MPH I have to be careful, spent too much time cleaning up my license to mess that up.

That's what we had to do. No wood accents but sh!tty just the same. Aurora to a f&^king Town and Country. On the bright side, the lease is up in a few months. We've been really eyeballing the new Aspen or a Durango.
