I'm very pleased with my new metallic beige EX-L.
I had bought a 2009 Civic because I didn't like the 8th generation Accords at all, but when I saw what Honda did with the 9th generation Accord, I had to have one.
For me, coming from a noisy, teeth-jarringly bumpy Civic, my new Accord feels like pure luxury.
My favorite aspects are the interior and exterior looks, the tremendously improved quietness of the cabin, the surprisingly good handling from the electric steering, high visibility, great acceleration, and some of the tech features.
Better attention to fit.
The trunk lid doesn't fit quite right, so that will need to be fixed.
Also, the ride is a bit stiff, but that's typical for Honda and I accept it.
