Some Good, Some Bad
By Dagwood on
2007 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I like this car, but the manual transmission has become frustrating in cold weather. Difficult 3rd gear shift and it will occasionally throw the stick out of gear. This is not uncommon with this transmission in the sedan, coupe, S2000, Civic si, and Acura TL. I love everything else about the car and I still like the 6-speed even with this problem - I just wish Honda would solve the issue. Comfy seats, good accel and passing power, nice ride, decent handling, nice stereo, heated mirrors & seats. I put Dunlop Wintersport M3s on the car and the are wonderful - better than the stock Michelins. I'm not a huge fan of the look of the rear end of the car, but I like it better than the '08s.
Power, 6 spd. - even with cold weather problem, heated seats/mirrors. Steering wheel with radio/cruise controls.
Honda should acknowledge the cold weather shift problem and fix it (Forums suggest a different transmission fluid). Better stock tires.
