2009 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I've shopped everywhere for a affordable yet sporty midsized. I've looked at Camry, Maxima, and Mazda. The best was Honda Accord. It's got luxury, power, attractiveness, and even comfort. The V6 EX L is not cheap. I ended up paying over $31,000 after taxes and fees but it's been well worth it. Acceleration is more than enough for my wife and me, interior room is very spacious, and I feel like I'm in a true luxury vehicle. Sometimes I forget that it's a Honda. Yes, it's that good.
Interior space and chrome door handle. Honda's amazing reliability is always a plus.
The road noise I could do without. But it's only noticeable when I'm on the highways. With the 270 Watts stereo system on, it's not much of a problem.
