Solid value but missing some features

I was leaning toward other cars (Legacy, Sonata) but got such a good deal on this I couldn't turn it down. It's everything you expect from an Accord. Solid, comfortable, fairly nimble & well made. That being said, it's missing some features that you'd expect it to have and that the competition already does. The powertrain, while competent is beginning to showing its age relative to the competition. In the end, it's a good car that's better than the sum of its parts. It won't overly impress, but it won't disappoint, either.
Handling: Is it a sports car? No, but it's got a nice firm ride that's reasonably responsive. Build quality: Is it luxurious? No but its got good materials that are well put together for a quality feel and experience. Very roomy interior.
Road noise. When will Honda ever address this? Paddle shifters for Auto-Trans. Auto-on headlights way overdue. Split folding rear seat. Maybe a bit more sound insulation so the engine doesn't sound so harsh under hard acceleration.
