My Honda Accord: From Sweet 16 to College Degree

My name is Beth Lynch and I am a proud Honda Accord owner.

In fact, the first car I ever owned was a certified pre-owned1996 Honda Accord, purchased by my parents for my sweet 16.  When I received the Accord, it had roughly 45,000 miles on it. I drove the Accord to and from school, around town and to help shuffle friends who were not yet lucky enough to have their own car! My Honda Accord truly helped me get to where I was going!  In fact, that when it came time to head off to college, I took it along with me! 

Like most college freshmen, I became quite home-sick in the first few months of school.  Often times, I found myself taking my three hour drive back home in my reliable, trusty Honda Accord. Not once did I have any issue with my Accord on my commute back home from school! It kept up with my frequent long drives and, on top of everything, it didn’t cost much in gas because of its phenomenal fuel economy!

As I progressed through my college career and it came time to move out of the dorm, once again I found myself depending on my Honda Accord. You would be surprised at how many of my belongings fit into the spacious interior of the Accord! It had a large trunk and plenty of room. So much that I didn’t even have to ask anyone of my friends who had a truck!

Little by little I became more involved in student-life during college which required a lot of time spent in the Accord either driving back and forth from apartment to campus or even going out of town.  I drove to different cities for speaking engagements and often piled friends in my Accord to take a road trip on the weekends just to get out of our college town.  Never did I have any sort of mechanical issue with my Honda Accord on any of those trips.  A lot of my friends in college had, at one time or another, the issue of being stranded due to car trouble. Fortunately for me, car trouble was never an issue in my Accord and I attribute that 100% to the quality of the Accord.  I drove my Accord until I’d put well over 100,000 miles on it in only 5 years! That is a lot of miles in such a short period of time, but thankfully, for me, my Accord stuck by me every mile of the way!
