Why? I was (am) 16 and needed a car to get around. So I was looking around and dealers wanted roughly $4.5k for similar cars, and that was a lot more money than I had. So my friend told me his cousin was selling a car for $2500, so I jumped on it and got it for a bit less, actually. So main reason is that it was cheap, looked good, I like it, and is in relatively good condition, save for the autotragic is on it's last legs. (still on the original after 196k miles...).

Why?: I started getting panic attacks. I was afraid to drive in general. My Talon had some issues in the past that made me not trust the car for a DD. I had 2 dangerous situations in that car. Honestly, I had 2 Accords previously, 4th and 5th gen (I didn't own the 5th gen but I was DDing a 71 Jaguar so I would borrow it a lot lol).

Basically, because of my situation, and never owning a great car, I chose an accord. I only planned on keeping for about a year or 2. I actually had my Talon for 2 years after I bought my Accord.

Honestly, in retrospect I wish I bought a TL-S or a 7th gen, I liked the body style of this gen but it's way too damn slow. I needed a stick (never have had an auto in my life) so this was not the choice for me. That said, I will probably keep it for a long while. I want a really nice car and hopefully I can get one soon. I want to keep this as a DD because as a hip hop musician, I am in places where I shouldn't be driving a nice car and have confidence it will stay nice, or there sometimes.

Purchased:2009/Super Stock :hihi:
My dad bought his 2001 Accord Value Package brand new and drove it around his small town in Ohio till my senior year of high school when I was in need of a car. For the price of gas and the oil change, he drove it down with EVERYTHING stock (brakes, tires, windsheild wipers, everything still working fine) to Texas for me as a senior gift. After almost 3 years, changing parts and 2 small accidents, I have my Couger as it is today, old, clean and with a few add ons. :leeann:
I'm still new to 6thgenaccord tho

Purchased: September 2010
Why?: I had my first car for 2.5 years, and I bought it simply because it was cheap and I had cash ($1400 :hihi:) Then I found craigslist, and kicked my *** for 2.5 years after.
Then last summer I wanted to get a new car, and had been looking for a 6thgen all summer, and found one at a small dealership, but the price was too high. Then one Saturday morning, my dad told me about an accord that was in good condition, and cheap. Turns out he was telling me about the one I bought 2 days later.

Why? Dad saw it on Craigslist and immediately wanted to see it. Impulsively, he bought it. Why? Because he said it was a reliable car. 20,000 miles later the tranny blows...
