Just rolled over 3000 miles and everything is just right. Went with an Accord for the bulletproof reliability and was pleasantly surprised by the speed, handling, and overall size of the thing. It's a big car, and getting into the back seats is a challenge, but it is very comfortable. The trunk is huge! The gearbox is lazy sometimes and the cylinder deactivation can get really annoying when trying to quickly overtake. Rapidly reengaging all 6 pots to light back up feels like the car is kicking down 3 gears and there is a delay, but only briefly. I recorded 5.6 seconds to 60, which for a relatively heavy and front wheel drive car, is amazing. MPG is about 27 highway, 20 city with a light foot.
v6 power, smooth ride, huge trunk, above average mpg, very intuitive (if at first hard to use) sat/nav. great stock sound system. overall a great car
A few things: it's a heavy car, and when you drive aggressively and corner hard, the back lumbers around unwillingly and you realize why RWD exists. this is a great commuting car and one to drive quickly occasionally. not like a vw gti in that respect. also, no gate/paddles for shifting. why Honda?
