Now thats a useful picture, so the 2004 is better than the 2006 in respect to mileage. What other pros u got on em? U got any idea how much difference in price the 2004 and 2006 wud make, dont see any design changes in them both.

i was looking on craigslist and there is a pretty big difference in price from the 2004 to the 2006 the 2004 is at an average of about 6k vs. an average of 10k for the 2006 and i found a pic of the back of the 2004 also

i found a review online from a consumer website and this is what he had to say ((((I have owned many cars including 4 Hondas, and this is the most reliable, lowest cost to own of them all. Tons of room for our family of 4 and only routine maintenance so far (oil, brakes, tires, etc.). Could get a little better mpg for a 4 cyl car, but gets over 30 mpg on the highway so can't complain too much. Very comfortable leather interior, good legroom (I'm 6'5" tall), and plenty of trunk space. Car now has 132,000 miles and doesn't leak or burn any oil, and the transmission still feels very strong with no issues so far. Can't imagine being happier with another car. Have always liked Hondas, but this one is by far the best I've owned.

So ur saying the 2004 wud b d best to buy based on class and cost! Wud definitely settle for the 04' if its cheap and within d 5k range. Thanks brad.

ya from my research the 2004 would be the best buy for your price range also i wouldnt mind having one myself
