Traded a 2003 Accord for a 2010. An Accord is a great balance of things: Great horsepower, yet excellent fuel economy. (New car is getting 22 mpg in town, and it looks like it will get 30 on the highway. On several occasions, I got 34 mpg from my 2003 V-6.) Interior that's nice enough. Exterior that looks good, at least from most angles. Bulletproof reliability. And a big car that is roomy enough in front/back/trunk, but still handles nimbly. Plus, the navigation with voice commands that is one of the best in the business. All of this for $28K out the door. You simply can't beat it, not for the price.
Handling. Butter-smooth acceleration. Visibility. Interior room. Fuel economy. Nav and voice commands. Again, the car is a great balance of things.
Road noise -- why won't Honda get this right? Why must I choose between quiet and boring (Camry) or noisy and engaged? Standard EX V-6 wheels are u-g-l-y. Car is attractive from front and side, ugly from behind. A trunk deck more like Mazda6 would solve it. Manu-matic. Everyone has it but Honda.
