This car is nice to drive. Quick handling and loads of power. We are talking acceleration as quick as a Mustang GT but with a lot less engine noise and a lot more refinement. But that's where the good ends. Like the Mustang,t he price is in the stratosphere and
the value just isn't there anymore. The front seat is liken to a torture chamber. I mean, what is up with that head rest? It's like something from the Spanish Inquisition. Overall ride is fine but road noise is very present. The quality of plastics is way below what I would expect form Honda and no where near as good as I have in my 2001. The car is considerably heavier then my 01 and feels it. It is taller and you sit higher then in older Honda Accords. It is a nice car, but not nice enough for me to plop down 30 grand. This Honda is a drive by wire with no direct connection between gas pedal and throttle body. But you really can't tell. All controls work great for driving.
steering and acceleration are top notch. The console, though, is a nightmare to navigate, necessitating you taking your eyes off the road to do anything. You MUST set everything first before driving off. It is too complex and goofy to do on the fly while driving. Maybe after a year or two with the car, it will become intuitive, but at first look, it's a pain in the butt. Well, after driving it for a while, I decided to keep my 01 and keep looking.
