We ended up purchasing the 2006 Accord after comparing it to the Mazda6, Camry, Jetta, and Altima. After looking at the build quality and enjoyment of driving, we narrowed it down to the 6 and the Accord. Since we already own a 2003 Honda Pilot, we know the quality of the Pilot. I was concerned about some of the 6 quality and didn't like the painted accents. So far, I do not regret it one bit. Who knew a 4 cyl. could have this much pickup and to go from a Pilot and a Jeep Cherokee, 30mpg has been a very welcome surprise.
The new rear styling, Safety features (Daytime Running Lights, Side curtain airbags), power from the 4 cylinder.
Power Adjustable seats, moonroof controls in the ceiling instead of on the left of the stearing wheel, MP3 input jack on the stereo.
