A couple of months ago, the car I had throughout my teenage years died and it was time to move on. I went from a 13-year-old beater car to a luxurious Honda Accord EX-L…I was riding in style!
The first couple of weeks it was like taking home a newborn child. I yelled at my boyfriend for playing around with the buttons, I parked far away from other cars, and I drove at a snail’s speed all in an effort to protect my new “baby.”
I had other worries, too. I know squat about cars. My parents always took care of the maintenance and the paperwork because before, it was their car. Now it’s my car, and I feel a little clueless.
But I bet I’m not the only one!
I’ll be sharing my Honda first-timer experiences with you so that you can learn from me. (I’m hoping for my sake that it won’t all be what-not-to-do’s!) My first tip? Read your Owner’s Manual!
