- Amazing SMOOTH performance, luxurious, comfortable interior
- No IPOD or Satelite radio, road feel better in European Cars
Really love this car, went from a 06 Maxima to the Accord, and the Accord is far more comfortable, smoother and appears to be faster. The seats are very comfortable, I am over 6ft and have had no problem with them or the driving position. The acceleration is just amazing, yet it does it so quietly and smoothly that you get a certain smug satisfaction that this is not your boy toy Mustang, but a more of James Bond car. The A/C and heat work very well. Gas mileage is between 24 and 32 depending on the location. With 30K miles now on the clock no problems at all. Their isn't the same degree of handling as say a BMW, at the limit the BMW's rear wheel drive helps. However my daughter has a 2007 BMW and it is fraught with problems. I do a lot of long distance driving and would drive the Honda before the BMW. I like the exterior styling interior styling. Niggling things are the radio and nav combined control, too much time taking ones eye off the road. Smaller trunk than the Maxima or BMW, and I have had to replace the stock Michelins already (Chose Cooper CS4's)...read morehide

- Very powerful engine. Manual Trans. handling
- Price Price Price! Man, $28,000 for an Accord!
I have a 2001 Acord coupe that I am planning on trading and decided to try a new Accord. I figured I'd go with a 6 cyl since I tow a small trailer now and then and the 4 cyl in my present Accord is a little small for such a task. My 2001 handles better. It's suspension is tighter and much stiffer. But the only thing I noticed on this new V6 Accord is a little more body roll and a little softer ride. Something that is actually a plus on long trips. I initially tried an automatic, but to be frank, I can't stand Honda's automatic they install in Accords. It is just plain a sloppy shifting slush box. I know of several people who have had problems with the automatics and this new one seems no better. So, I tried the more upscale EX-L with a 6 speed and the difference between a V6 auto and the six speed manual is astonishing. The auto V6 seems about as spirited as a manual shift four while the manual shift V6 fells almost as quick as a 1990 Mustang LX-5.0 sedan I have.
My real complaint is that this particular car is way too expensive. I do not see why I can not get the 6 speed in the $23K LX version. I'm told that I can only get the automatic in the LX V6. I don't need all the stuff in the EX-L and although I am over 50, I do not need a nav system to tell me how to get home yet. All I need and want is the V6, a 6 speed, power locks and windows, an AM FM stereo radio, air, and cruise control. The LX comes standard with all this stuff. But to get that V6 with a 6 speed I have to move up to the EX and pay the $5,000+ premium. I like Honda and we have three, but at these prices, I may have to go elsewhere. I can get a Mercedes C230 for about the same price and the fit and finish are far superior. I think Honda is beginning to live on it's name as opposed to offering people what they really want. I mean, you can't even buy a Civic for under $17K anymore. What's up with these prices?...read morehide
