2008 Honda Accord: No Manual Shift Control
January 14, 2008
It's a bit curious that Honda chose not to offer a manual shift mode for the new Accord's automatic transmission. It's an increasingly common feature, even for family sedans. I don't use manual shift control very often but I found myself wanting it in the Accord over the weekend when tackling some hills.
Otherwise, our Accord's five-speed automatic is a model of efficient and well-timed shifts
