2009 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this car back in March and got a heck of a deal, but I have been very disappointed by the quality, noise, and most of all the VCM technology. This car looks awesome from the outside and has decent interior, but Honda needs to go back to a simple engine and have a 6 speed automatic for fuel economy. The VCM is constantly hunting and car jerks when its coming to a stop. The automatic transmission can't keep up with a sporty drive and the handling is to tight for my taste. I was sold on looks and should have gotten into a more solid all around car.
Get rid of the VCM. Use more metal and not plastic. Give the 2 door some special sport tuner transmission such as a Subaru. Add a keyless on button. This car needs more technology to keep up with Nissan and Toyota. Costs to much for what you get.
