After careful consideration, I ended up with an 2012 Accord SE.
I had a 2006 SE which I hand it to my teenager.
The new SE is even better and with more standard options, like heated leather seats and power seat.
I compared this car to 2012 Camry, and Acura TL., okay TL is not in the same class, but there is nothing less that SE offers for substantially less price, and you don't have to worry about a timing belt that the TL (and all 6 cyl. Hondas have).
The new SE has plenty of power, nice tight ride, beautiful and logically layout dash, and controls.
I just finished the first tank of gas, and got about 30 MPG, in combined driving, same as my 2006.
So, the SE is the best choice I say.
Heated seats, logically laid out dash and controls. good radio, very smooth ride, plenty of power for a 4 cylinder.
Integrated Blue tooth is the only thing that I can think off, although I don't mind not having it.
