I recently spent a couple of days test driving the 2018 Honda Accord Touring on a road trip to Bellingham with a few coffee and food stops along the way.
Leaving Vancouver, driving Highway 99 South to the Peace Arch border crossing where we then crossed into Washington state, from here it was a short drive to the Bellingham area of about 20 minutes. The drive including the border wait was just about an hour.
Some of the unique features of the Honda Accord Touring includes for the driver is one of the coolest and most helpful features that I have seen to date, a digital display in the window of the speed the car is going. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system2 (HS*) is a very food feature as is the 3 view reverse camera makes it convenient when navigating through tight spots.
Inside the car it’s spacious with lots of leg room, the driver seat is adjustable with 12-way power adjustment including 4-way power lumbar support. The front and rear passengers get USB ports to charge their devices.
Had breakfast at Fiamma Burger, where we had some delicious eats, Original pancakes, Red hash potatoes; and Chocolate chip pancakes. Our next stop was to Primer Coffee which was located about 1-1/2 KM North of downtown, where I had an Espresso Tonic.
From here we drove to Fairhaven to walk around the historic neighborhood, visit Village Books and checked out some new shops and such.
Afterwards we were back in the car heading to Mi Rancho Meat Market for some tasty Carnitas and Asada tacos at only $1 each we enjoyed a couple of tacos each, this eatery was recommended to me by my friend Alejandro who knew where the best Mexican eateries were in the area.
All in all the Honda Accord Touring 2018 model was a great car to drive in the city and on the highway around the Northwest. Inside the car you had a luxurious feel without the luxury price tag that would normally come with a car of this calibre.
