I love my 2013 Accord LX CVT. Probably the best looking Accord to date. Plenty of power for city driving or the freeway. CVT is a first for me but anytime you can cruise 70 mph @ 19-2000 rpm in a 3200 lb car is a win. Great interior, comfortable seats, great stereo. I managed 38 mpg on the highway today and the car has only 5k so I'm sure it will loosen up a bit once its broken in and gets synthetic oil inside
I have never seen such a heavily optioned Honda for a base vehicle (LX) The EX has a ton of added safety features that would really be nice as well. Really like the i-MID screen/Rear view cam, the stereo is amazing great low frequency (bass) for a stock stereo
CVT does shudder at low speed usually when slowing to a stop or accelerating from a stop. Not sure if this will adversely effect the service life or not. To me it feels more like a manual in those instances and doesn't really bother me. But, Sport mode should be the first drive gear selection NOT second! I made the mistake of shifting down into Low at 55 mph for a brief moment. Do that in an automatic and its probably toast. I would like to see bigger wheels or a lower sidewall ratio but cant complain about a car that has alloy wheels stock. Center console could be a bit longer like my 2010 Civic had that would give you a little more storage space but this is all nit picking
