The 2012 Honda Accord LX is your typical Honda with slight improvements.
This is the 4th Honda I have driven (different generations) and probably one of the best ones.
One of the immediate noticeable differences is the road noise.
It is greatly reduced, however, still noticeable, just not as noticeable as your typical Honda (barring the 2012 Honda CRV, which has very low road noise).
The 5 speed automatic transmission is very smooth and responsive, plus great gas mileage.
I'm averaging approximately 30 miles per gallon with 60% highway/40% city driving.
Handling is much more responsive and tighter than the 2012 Toyota Camry LE (which I drove for 3 months prior).
Bucket seats - feels like they hug you.
Still needs a reduction in road noise.
Bluetooth phone integration should be standard on an LX to match competitors.
