I have shopped around for car in Toyota and Honda. While Toyota Camry 2010 is also a very good car, somehow we ended up liking Accord. Whlile in Accord you feel the road and the power behind the car more, for Camry it's the smoothness of driving experience. Shusmita didn't want to even go for a test drive of Hyundai Sonata although that is also a comparable car at a cheaper price. I guess we are so used to our Honda Civic that only another Honda car would have been able to psychologically match our unknown requirements. I gave a four thousand dollars down payment and the rest my dealer financed me from American Honda Finance.
While buying the car, I also bought the 6 years service, mechanical breakdown warranty, low jack safety and some service contracts. I came to know at that time that Honda Accord is America's number one stolen car followed by Honda Civic and Toyota Camry respectively.
I must say that I am enjoying driving the car. Shusmita is also driving to get habituated to it's bigge size as early as possible. It's quite bigger than the Civic but again that's why we didn't buy Civic again. Ahyan's car seat takes a good amount of space in the middle of back seat and still I see good space left inside the car. I returned my rental Mazda car this morning.
What I like about the car is space inside, it's power, it's look & feel, shape. What I miss is the digital speedometer/dashboard of my Civic. I am feeling an urge to go for long drive with my new car and the power makes this more irrestible.
Although Shusmita was in favor of blue color, we went for her second choice Maroon as the blue was not readily available. I liked ut because I wanted a change after more than 3 years of driving a blue car.
Yesterday we bought a bicycle for Ahyan also with his helmet and hand guards. He is very happy riding it this morning.
We had our dinner at Red Lobster last night with Sumit Bhai, Walil Bhai, Ezaz's family and Nitol. After that we ususally had a long weekend adda this time in Ezaz's house.
Bangladesh defeated West Indies even in the last ODI making sure a white wash in the 3 day ODI series.
