I have huge issues with my local dealerships. I'll get at least one or more of the issues I mentioned - every time.
This picture is just like my first Honda Accord, a 1989. The color was a sort of desert sand, I cannot remember the paint name. It was a nice light shade of tan/gold and was metallic. When the sun hit that paint it was just amazing. I bought this used, 8 years old, and at 131,000 miles. Yes, I had to do a number of things to it to bring it back to tip top shape. But I loved it! That color and coupled with its burgundy interior of cloth seats and trim seemed so luxurious. That year was the first for fuel injection but my LX had the carb. It was stick shift and that 4 cylinder engine could really make those 13 inch tires go. I was younger then and just one time I had to see how fast it would go. So, on a long section of empty deserted highway I put the pedal to the metal and away we went. After just a short while the speedometer reached 115 mph and was still moving up but I had ran the course as far as I dared. It was one sweet car, and I wish I still had it! Now that color was super easy to take care of, not ever showing the dirt; and it just seemed so very rich. The '89 styling was so sporty and the headlights with the auto closed covers made it even more so. ...what a car and tribute to Honda, thanks! JimBob

I have seen it and I would strongly recommend that you view it in person before making any kind of decision. People tend to either love it or hate it. Personally, I don't care for it as it seems a "fleshy" flat beige to me, but I have a friend that loves the color.
Man, this color is growing on me the more I see it. At first I thought it wasn't for me at all and was set on white, but now I'm not so sure. I need to see one in person but the only one around my area is 45 minutes away.
I don't know what the Honda dealer's back service area looks like, and frankly I don't really want to know as long as the repairs are done properly. The Honda dealer has ASE signs in the publicly accessible/viewable area of the garage, for whatever that's worth. I hope that they are using Honda fluids since they are a Honda dealer and can get them for cost (vs. what they charge us at the parts window for the same). I really don't know if it's worth worrying about in my world. I have money, so I pay them whatever they want to charge me for the service. I'm really not in a position to argue or shop around, so I don't bother.
