Just purchased my 3rd Accord, and first new one. Took a while to find an EX with the manual gearbox. I'm coming out of a 99 LX, so it's a bit of an adjustment. Awesome car though, fun to drive, great on gas, huge interior, comfortable, good build quality. Would buy again!
Best stick shift and clutch I've driven to date, awesome gas mileage, quieter than my last one, massive back seat, car looks sharp in black with ivory, very good handling for a full size car. Took a week to get used to the very firm and supportive seats but they're great now. Car is fun to drive!
Sound system is a bit weak (my '99 4 speaker LX stereo was better), drive-by-wire throttle takes getting used to (not as snappy as the '99), heavier car = slightly slower acceleration, would have loved a USB port, Bluetooth, and/or a split-folding rear seat as opposed to a one-piece design.
