This will was my fourth accord that I purchased in September of 2010. I owned a 91 EX coupe 5 speed in high school (3 years), a 99 EX-L sedan 5 speed for 4 years, a 91 LX sedan 5 speed for 5 years (that one had idling issues btw), and now I'm back to my roots with my EX, which was only! The performance is good considering it's age but I don't think it was faster than my 99 vtec. My only problem is that it isn't too comfortable but that's b/c I was spoiled by the roomier EX-L and I'm 6ft with long legs! lol. I know some have had the misfortune of owning a lemon, but Honda has been good to me for the past 12 years!
When I finish school, I plan on an 06-07 V6 sedan 6 speed!
The alloy wheels, believe it or not; The overall design; Gas mileage; Factory speakers; Manual gearbox;
If you own an automatic, you'll understand why; Rear leg room; CV axles; Road noise -- but remember, every car has it's flaws!
