2006 Accord Coupe V6 Six Speed

Unbelievably full featured car. Wonderful torquey motor that pulls from low RPM in any gear. You can either leave it in a high gear and drive like it's (almost)an automatic or row through the gears and keep it in the high power band for fun. The car is amazingly quick for a Honda that runs on 87 octane. I can see why VSA is standard equipment because you can get yourself into some serious situations with lift throttle. :o
Incredible motor. Six speed is notchy cable shifter but completely adequate. Very well designed interior with free XM Radio. Legible, logical gauges. Very long feature list for the money.
The brakes should probably be a little stronger.They're OK for road use but you know people are going to Summit Point sooner or later. The suspension is probably a little soft considering the car's out-of-the-box performance.I wouldn't change the motor at all, but I would add more brakes/suspension.
