Great Commuter Car

2006 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned this car for only 5 months, but it has been rock solid and bulletproof. Super gas mileage - several mixed city/highway tank fills have averaged 38 mpg (that's over 500 miles between fill-ups; even allowing for a small reserve). Driver's position and ergonomics are well designed: from the tilt and telescoping steering wheel to the radio/CD and HVAC controls, Honda has successfully executed the interior design of this vehicle in every detail.
Driving position, interior space (full size adults will fit comfortably in the back seat in the coupe), excellent radio/HVAC controls, excellent build quality and very good gas mileage.
Honda should offer the 6-speed manual as an option with the 4 cylinder engine. This would improve the driving experience, and possibly a small boost in gas mileage as well. Honda should've considered a hatchback design for the coupe.
