2004 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Leased this car after looking at BMW
330, Acura TSX and Infiniti G35 Coupe. I
used to think the BMW manual was the
slickest shifting unit out there until I
got my Accord. Clutch is effortless and
the shifter moves into each gate with a
satisfying mechanical click. Honda
really got it right with this car.
Fit/finish is what you'd expect from
Honda- superb. Very mild mannered during
normal driving but the 3.0 V6 will stand
up and roar if you get your foot in it.
This car is
every bit as good as its higher-priced
competitors. If you don't care much
about status symbols like BMW,
definitely look at this car and save 10
Incredible performance with only 87oct
gas, yet still 32mpg on hwy. Superior
transmission and engine. The most
comfortable seats I've ever seen.
Luminescent gauges. 180W stereo is
great. Luxurious interior finish. So
many standard features that are options
on other cars. Slick styling
No pause button for CD changer/player!
Come on Honda! A bit too much body roll
for my tastes, but I suppose it is a
compromise for the ride. I would expect
HID headlights for this flagship trim
level- they could use the Acura units.
