NICK: I like the Honda Accord you showed me before.
I think it's more practical for my needs.
JOHN: Alright, sir. You are making a good choice.
Honda has made a lot of design improvements in the new Accord.
NICK: What does it come with standard?
JOHN: On all our new cars, the standards include:
air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, air bags, and an AM/FM stereo with a CD player.
But on the Accord, there is another standard item as well.
The Accord comes with cruise control.
NICK: Cruise control? I don't like that.
JOHN: Why not, sir?
NICK: I think it's dangerous. What if I can't turn it off?
JOHN: Well, sir, I know some of our customers are concerned about cruise control.
But Honda has never had a single cruise control malfunction that led to an accident.
NICK: I wish it didn't have cruise control. My wife doesn't like it either.
JOHN: You know, sir, you don't have to use it.
You can turn it on or off. If you don't want to use it, you just never turn it on.
NICK: I suppose. And what about the sunroof? Is that standard?
JOHN: No, the sunroof is optional, sir.
NICK: I see. Another important question is the time I can get this car.
I need a new car rather soon.
JOHN: Well, I can say that the new models will be here in August.
If you order one now, we will have it for you in August.
NICK: That's good enough, I think. What colors does the new Accord come in?
JOHN: We have this new model in red, white, black, or silver.
These are the standard colors.
Of course you could specially order from various other colors too.
NICK: My brother has last year's Accord.
And his car is a kind of soft purple color mixed with silver.
I really like that color. I wonder if I can get that color on my Accord.
JOHN: I know the color you mean. Is this it, sir?
NICK: Yes, I think that's it. Can I get that on the Accord?
JOHN: Yes, you can.
That color is very popular with Honda buyers. So we've kept it available.
NICK: Well, I think I want to order the new Accord then.
It looks like an excellent car.
JOHN: You have made a good choice, sir.
I drive an Accord myself. They are very solidly built machines, very reliable.
NICK: Yes, I know. I think Honda is the most reliable car on the road.
I would never change to anything else.
The Honda I have now almost never has service problems. It runs smooth as silk.
JOHN: Alright, sir. I will get the paperwork ready for you. Just a moment.
