Mine-2001 Acura MDX-will keep for a few more years. *

DW-2001 Honda Accord EX-will be trading for something easier for DW and I to get in and out of. *We both have bad backs so comfort is #1 right now.

Other-2003 Toyota Tundra 4X4 for hauling the toy trailer and stuff to and from the cabin on dirt roads (mud and snow). *Will be selling when the cabin sells.

1989 Honda Accord (228k miles)
1999 Ford F150 (fishing trip vehicle)

Doing basic maintenance is so simple, you have to wonder about the IQ's of people who pay others to do it for them!

So, do you wonder about the IQ of Bill Gates if he pays someone to change his oil for him?

Re: What do you drive? A car poll....

1991 Honda Accord (299,500 miles) Love my Honda. Anyone got more miles than that? I don't run into too many people that have more miles than I do on the 91 Honda, but I'll bet someone on this board has more.
