Then you are back to an HX. Pay a bit more and get a really clean-looking one for your image concerns, as well as one with lower miles. For about $5,000 you could find one of those from about 2000 or 2001 with 100,000-150,000 miles on it. It would look clean and have tens of thousands of miles of reliable relatively trouble free driving left in it.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
