i've researched insurance rates on accords, and was shocked @ how high they are. so, some members may throw rocks, but i think i'd like to go w/ a chevy impala or similar late model GM V6.
the 3.4 liter gives up 2mpg in the city to the 4 cyl accord, but takes 2 right back on the hwy(21/32 vs 23/30). i've had good luck w/ the GM fwd vehicles w/ V6s. i believe them to be very reliable and would rival toyota and honda if it weren't for their intake gasket debacle.
