The perfect family car

Vehicle2008 Honda Accord LX-P 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewWhen my wife totaled our Mazda6 Wagon I was sure we'd replace it with a new Honda CRV. But after seeing the new Accord in the flesh it was too good to pass up. It was bigger, got better MPG, still offered a stickshift, and was cheaper. Even our "base" LX has all the amenities, all the safety items we demanded, and a ton of passenger space. The exterior, which looked so odd in pictures, is quite appealing in person. We got the black cloth interior and the polished metal exterior. It handles flatly in corners yet doesn't punish you with a harsh ride. The shifter is typical Honda-perfect. With a set of snow tires it's handling VT winter like a champ.
Best FeaturesFront seat comfort, tons of people space, incredible value for your dollar, Acura looks/Honda price.
Worst FeaturesMore colors! I would have loved the bright red of the coupe but Honda offers just a few conservative colors in the sedans and even fewer in the LX.
