I am in the market for a new car, I am a 60+ year old woman and the main things I care about are heated leather seats, a nice size trunk and a car that will last. My current car is a Ford Probe that is going on its 17th year!!!! I have narrowed it down I believe to the Honda Accord 4 door and the acura tsx. Any tips, good or bad on either car, being able to go fast is of no concern to me. Thanks for your advice! Katie

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Katie, I vote for the Honda Accord, and would invite you to take the Toyota Camry for a test drive too! Both are reliable, cost effective, last a long time and are very comfy cozy with a nice size trunk. All My Best, Amy Mattinat

Burnam Eubank, Dealer Principle at Palmetto Jaguar Both of those vehicles are great choices. The Acura is the luxury version of the Honda so it will have additional standard features and better trim but will be higher priced. Before you make your best deal I would go to the manufacturer

Erica Sietsma, Dealership Corporate Training Specialist at MileOne Automotive Hi Katie, As a former TSX owner, I absolutely loved the car, however, the Honda Accord is a little larger and a better value. With the TSX, you are paying for the Acura name. Since the Accord is going through a body style change this year (the 08 model will be COMPLETELY different), you should be able to get great deals as they are trying to clear out the outdated 07 inventory! Erica Sietsma

Jenny Trostel, Partner at Anderson of Hunt Valley Both if the vehicles that you have looked at are good choices. Find out the reputation of the dealer that will be selling and servicing the car you buy. Make a decision based on the experience that you have when you visit the dealer. Also check askpatty to see if there's a "women friendly" dealership near you. Good Luck!
