Much Better Than Expected

2013 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
After a couple months, 5,000 miles and a road trip here's my take on the Accord.
Fuel economy is outstanding, equal or better than the EPA estimates.
36+ on the highway typically cruising 5+ over the posted speed limit.
33 mpg combined since purchase but admittedly much of it was hwy miles.
The car is designed around fuel efficiency. The Ambient meter is a brilliant but simple reminder giving instant feedback of your driving habits. The cabin is much quieter and improved over previous models.
The CVT transmission takes a little getting used to but not a big deal.
In fact the more I drive it the more I appreciate it's smoothness. The stereo reads the media quickly and sounds good.
Ambient meter, ECON button, several measurements to instantly give feed back on mpg & driving habits.
Typically excellent Honda build quality.
Backup camera and right mirror camera.
Stereo is better than others have reported.
Quality interior materials.
Make better use of the large 8" screen.
The fuel readouts are redundant.
