Well, after long deliberations I've finally decided what I'm going to do. I'm going to get a 2004 Honda Civic EX Coupe in Satin Silver Metallic instead of the Accord or Solara. There are several reasons for this decision: 1. It will allow me to get a new car now *AND* move out on my own in August. 2. It won't put me in a financial bind with car payments and insurance. I'll still be making car payments and paying insurance but they'll be much lower than if I bought a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry Solara. 3. I really like the design of the interior and exterior of the Civic. A really nice design that I can live with and enjoy at the same time, which is important! 4. Honda has 2.9% APR and a $400.00 factory to dealer incentive according to Edmunds. I test drove it yesterday to be sure that I wasn't missing anything but lo and behold I ended up falling in love with the 2004 Civic EX. A really nice car. Its design, handling, and performance is like a cross between my 1996 Civic LX Sedan and a 2004 Honda Accord EX (the one that I test drove anyway). I think I can make a compromise on this. This way I'll have a car that I like and enjoy. Plus, financially I'll still be in the green. And what about the color? First of all I wanted to get the Magnesium Metallic color but when I saw it in person it wasn't really all that great. They make it look like the Honda Accord's graphite pearl on the web site. However, in person it isn't really all that dark and I think the color is rather ugly (oh well). I love the Satin Silver Metallic, though. Aaahhh, life is good. Now all I gotta do is sell my current Civic, go to the dealership and the car is mine. Well, it's not that simple of course but the job will get done...hopefully this month!
