Honda Accord Tourer - Why Someone Might Buy OneS

I'm currently running a Honda Accord Tourer EX i-DTEC. It's the ultimate car for someone who just wants a car.

This is an imagined scenario which describes why someone may buy one. A husband and wife are talking.

Husband - Darling, the car is getting a bit shabby. We need a new one.

Wife - OK. How much do we have to spend?

Husband - £25,000 plus the value of our old car.

Wife - How much is the old car worth?

Husband - I don't know. You know I know nothing about cars.

Wife - Yes, and neither do I. Let's see if we can get a valuation on the internet.

They get a valuation on the internet.

Husband - So our old car is worth £5,000. We have £30,000 to spend on a new car.

Wife - What will we buy?

Husband - You know I know nothing about cars. We need room for the children in the back, and a big boot for the dog and it should return good miles per gallon and not cost too much in road tax. And it should be an automatic, I don't like changing gears. And I would like heated seats and parking sensors.

Wife - Hmmmmm.

Husband - Hmmmmm.

Wife - Let's buy a magazine and see what is available.

Husband - OK.

They go and buy a car magazine.

Husband - This car magazine is stupid. It doesn't list all the models.

Wife - It is stupid. It only has a tiny amount of data and only has people driving up mountains in Fiat Pandas in it.

Husband - Let's go on the internet.

Wife - OK. They go on the internet.

Husband - There is too much information. I don't know what to look for.

Wife - You really know nothing about cars do you.

Husband - No.

Wife - I've found one. It is a Honda Accord Tourer. It costs just over £30,000, returns 44.1mpg and has heated seats and parking sensors.

Husband - Oh good. Shall we buy it. Wife - OK. Oh no, hang on. It doesn't have a digital radio. I hate Vanessa Feltz and she's always on Radio 2.

Husband - Shit. What shall we do now?

Wife - A website called Speedmonkey says the Skoda Superb Estate is £25,000 and does everything we want and the Volvo V60 Estate costs from £25,000 and does everything we want too.

Husband - Good. The Volvo looks nice doesn't it.

Wife - Yes it does. Shall we buy one.

Husband - OK.

Wife - OK.

Husband - Darling, the fridge is getting a bit shabby too. We need a new one.

Wife - OK…

Alternate ending, after they go on the internet:

Husband - There is too much information. I don't know what to look for.

Wife - You really know nothing about cars do you.

Husband - No.

Wife - I've found one. It is a Honda Accord Tourer. It costs just over £30,000, returns 44.1mpg and has heated seats and parking sensors.

Husband - Oh good. Shall we buy it.

Wife - OK. Oh no, hang on. It doesn't have a digital radio. I hate Vanessa Feltz and she's always on Radio 2.

Husband - But I love Vanessa Feltz. She's so funny.

Wife - You're weird. But OK let's buy it. Then I'll be able to play along with Ken Bruce's Pop Master. I love 80s pop.

Husband - OK.

Wife - OK.

Husband - Darling, the fridge is getting a bit shabby too. We need a new one.

Wife - OK…
