I bought a 2013 Accord with the 6 speed manual and it's fantastic. It drives with precision, yet isn't twitchy. the manual is just one of the best I've ever used - snick, snick like butter into each gear. I also love the car isn't bogged down with too much technology. It seems like every mfg. is trying to outdo each other with tech goodies, when what most people want is a basic, good, easy, yet fun to drive car. I fear this Accord may be the last of those honest, easy to drive, basic cars. If you like to shift yourself, and like a bit of sport with you r dive and don't want a ton of tech goodies - it doesn't get much better than a 2013 Accord Sport with a manual.
Transmission - clutch, shifter, throws, etc.
Driving feel - hard to quantify, but you know it when you drive it. Perfect balance of feel, sport, comfort.
Seats - very nice and supportive.
Engine - smooth, revs great, good torque for a 4 cylinder
Not much here. Split folding rear seat would be nice.
