2004 Honda Accord Is An Icon At Winston-Salem, NC Used Car Dealership

- The Honda Accord is an American icon but a used 2004 Honda Accord is the most requested vehicle at a Winston-Salem, NC dealership.

The Honda Accord has become an automotive icon and a small piece of Americana. As a matter of fact, it’s been around for so long that it’s hard to remember what it was like before the Accord. But there was such a time…

On a November day in 1982, the first American-produced Honda Accord rolled off the assembly line at the Marysville Auto Plant. Then, almost 22 years later, another Accord rolled off the assembly line to more accolades.

It was a silver 2004 Accord EX Sedan and it became the 10 millionth automobile produced by Honda in Ohio.

"This is a great accomplishment that shows the dedication of all our associates," Honda of America Mfg. President and CEO Koki Hirashima said. "Honda's growth in Ohio has provided opportunities for our associates, suppliers and neighboring communities."

With the start of motorcycle production in 1979, Honda of America was trying to establish itself as a company that could build quality products in the United States. Today, Honda of America is a leading automotive manufacturer and Honda is also one of the top selling pre-owned nameplates in the marketplace.
"Since that first Accord, our associates have never stopped trying to get better," said a representative for Honda. "From rolling model changes to building light trucks on the same line as cars, we have set the industry standard for flexibility and the desire to find better ways to manufacture the products our customers enjoy."

Tracy Myers, owner of Winston-Salem based used car dealer Frank Myers Auto Maxx, said that his customers love the Accord. “The Honda Accord is our number one requested vehicle…hands down. It’s more popular here than the used Maxima, used Camry and used Lexus combined. And the 2004 body style is still their most requested…regardless of the fact that it’s five years old. That’s why we try to keep several in stock. Plus we have a service department that is fully capable of handling almost any factory recommended maintenance at a fraction of what it would cost you at the Honda dealership.”

Last year, Frank Myers Auto Maxx was once again named a top 30 used car dealership in North Carolina. They are the premier pre-owned auto dealer in Winston-Salem, NC and are best known for their world famous "Everybody Rides" program.
