So I was driving the 2000 Accord to the car wash this evening and realized that the car has some pretty advanced features often found in more expensive cars. Not only does it have a compass for navigation, it also has a subtle aromatherapy via the febreze car vent clip.

At first I thought that was a spy photo of the new RLX interior.

Ah, but do you have the hot stone massage?

"And if the aromatherapy feature isn't enough, the new S-class comes with a hot stone massage feature in the seats, too."

Those things smell awful. They leave your clothes and hair smelling like disgusting rotten perfume.

Actually, it's a Febreze scent. Pretty popular smell around the house.

Ah, the wonderful simplicity of the interior design! I had a 2001 Accord LX in silver, so I know that interior well. I put nearly 80,000 miles on it in about 3 years or so, then traded it in for a 2004 Accord EX-L V6. The 2001 Accord was my first Honda product... :)

Yes I am very familiar with those little scent things, I carpooled with a guy who used one. Once they age that smell gets overwhelming in a bad way. Nauseating is the word to describe it.

Sorry, young man :-).

You missed out on the best of the Accord models. The '85 refresh was in my opinion the best of the lot. It was how I was won over to Honda. Prior to that it was GM, but after a disastrous encounter with one of their X-cars (remember those POS), I was in the market for something more reliable. I had heard that the Japanese were making very reliable cars and so it was a choice between the '85 Camry and the '85 Accord. I thought the style of the Accord was slightly better so I went for that. I have never looked back since.

I wanted an 86 LXi 5MT sedan but the dealer would not budge... He wanted $16.5K plus tax and registration (this included the $2000 dealer markup, which was stated on the bill... take it or leave it).

So I waited until the Integra came in, got one for $14.5K (including AC). AHM wanted to put the cars on the street so the very early adopters were very well treated.

Better (DOHC) engine, a little bit smaller, five doors and both had pop up headlights.

Oh, the first car I ever wanted was an early 80s Accord! I was probably 17 at the time, and a lady had a used Accord for sale. I can't remember the exact model year, but it was love at first drive. lol But I needed help at the time to buy it, and mom didn't really like it... Based on how much I loved that early 80s Accord, I often wonder why it took me so long to finally purchase my first Honda... :)

My first Honda was a 1984 Civic S and it took 4 months to arrive. The fine workmanship of those inexpensive little Honda's was a revelation compared to the low priced American cars at that time.

+1 The only smell fit for a car is the new car smell, anything else including that greasy stuff detailers like to put all over the interior might as well be puke.

Yep, I had a similar reaction to seeing and driving that used Accord for the first time. Granted, my vehicle experience at the time was extremely limited, but I was still blown away by the smoothness of the Accord. I specifically remember that I thought the instrument cluster was very cool, and I loved how light the steering effort was at low speed. I think the car I had been driving before that might not have had power steering, so that probably explains why I liked the latter so much! lol
