    Hi folks.
    My name is David, and I am a 34 year old paramedic living in Surrey, and working in London.

    Until last week, I was driving a Peugeot 106 round, given to me by my father-in-law-to-be. Its final destination was my local garage, who promptly condemned the little french rattletrap.

    Mate lent me a VW Golf for a few weeks, till I found something a little more permanent. I did my research (bored out of my mind) and went to look at a proper dog of a tourer. Then went to look at a saloon at a dealer to see what a four year old Accord should be like.

    Finally found a nice one - '07 saloon 'sport' in graphite grey, 72K on the clock, for £5550. I am collecting on Tuesday next week.

    So, tell me guys & gals - What do I need to know???

    Kindest regards, David

    Hi David and welcome, I've owned my 7th Generation Accord for 12 months now and have had no problems except one minor issue. So in all the car is reliable as long as you stay on top of the maintenance side of things and maybe follow some the sound advice on the AOC.

    Hi and welcome David don't worry you have come to the right place to get answers to your questions. Which I hope will be few when you get and drive the car. Think you'll enjoy the experience much better than a frog mobile
