Verify what the original in-service date is, you want to make sure the CPO isn't about to run out time wise. 6 yrs or 100K miles from in-service date.

I did. I don't like the exterior of the accord and haven't liked how it drives in a long time. Honestly the last accord I really liked was the '92 coupe that a friend of mine had. LOVED that car,...

Be careful, my dealer says that the seal on the coolant pipe isn't covered by CPO. I am currently in a fight with them about that.
