2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Let's be honest, an Accord is not a BMW or luxury SUV. I had a 2005 Pilot before this and the Pilot was more functional and comfortable, but the 2010 Accord is very nice vehicle with a lot of space. Steering and cornering are tight, the V- 6 model accelerates fairly well, but nothing to be excited about. Not much road noise to speak of. You do feel bumps. For the first time in years the Accord is somewhat of a looker; In black, it looks similar to many luxury sedans (Mercedes, Infiniti, Lexus). Seats are comfortable for a normal commute, but forward tilted head rests are a bit of a mystery. The passenger could get annoyed on a long trip. Overall, very happy with this practical purchase
New body design is classy, looks like a Mercedes. ECO system (switching from 6 to 4 cylinders to save gas), Integrated blue tooth, radio wheel/dial, steering wheel controls. Handles nice. Tons of interior space and trunk space. Reliability. Reliability. Reliability. Reliability. Reliability.
AWD - I live in the Northeast and AWD is a no-brainer (Accord Crosstour is ugly). This car badly needs a USB 2.0 port to be future-proof. Why is the Accord the ONLY Honda model without one? Temp controls cumbersome, go back to dial. More console storage would be handy, items slide around on it
