Well, the '08 Accord (LX 4 cyl) is an awesome car. Honda delivers again. Except...its just ugly. The engine is the most refined in its class, maybe the world, the build quality is polished, and the transmission/chassis is superb. But it looks like something my grandma might buy if she wanted something "young and hip". Recently drove a new Malibu, and am hooked. Seriously considering a trade.
The engine, the engine, the engine. And the tranny, and the suspension.
Dear God, give it a sexy face. The Civic is pretty hot, so why screw up the Accord? The interior is a tad funky too.
