2005 Honda Accord LX Special Edition V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
The engine performance is great; upgraded from a 1999 Honda Accord 4cyl LX; the Special Edition added features that made it a done deal. One annoyance though: I had to pull the glovebox light bulb out, because the light is on automatically with the headlights, so light was shining out of the cracks of the glovebox door at night... no switch to turn it off when the glovebox door is closed.. :(
Engine performance; lit steering wheel controls for radio/cruise; 6-disc CD in-dash changer; moonroof, decklid spoiler and color-keyed sidesills w/the SE package make it look like an EX trim level; auto-off headlights--- no more dead battery surprises!
Put the sliding sun-shade extensioner back in! Honda removed it in this model redesign; quality seems to be declining a bit... rattles; driver power window motor has probs; the lockable trunk release somehow broke, and I never use it (I use the button on the key);
