One Awedome Honda
By Richard on
2006 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Just bought this black beauty with 30,000 miles on it and am amazed at its performance, economy, handling, and comfort levels. It's definitely at the top of its class and better than many costing thousands more. I put 18 inch 2009 Honda wheels on it (with 235/40/ZR18 Michelin tires), and it corners like it's on rails. The black leather interior says luxury in every aspect. No amenities were left to chance, per the usual Honda mindset. Just put 262 miles on it last night (75 mph freeway driving) and got 29.5 mpg - very good for this powerful V6. Glad it shares its stellar reputation with its 'bread-and- butter' sister (Sedan) while adding a bit of individualism 'sport' to its look/feel.
Only small issues - XM radio has no 'Aux' port (for IPod, etc.). Rear seating (Coupe) is really only comfortable for two adults (with about 6 inches less legroom than the Sedan) and a bit 'sparse' on the side panels. As usual, I HATE the 'donut' spare - dangerous to say the least. No others now.
