Waited a few months before reviewing, so I could get a full grasp on the car. Honda has hit a price-value sweet spot, especially with the LX model. Features at the entry price is amazing (see fav features). Compared against a Camry SE, Altima S, Mazda 6 (2014MY Mazda 3 is way better than the 6) and this was THE best bang for the buck. Love the handling, gas mileage, and the front design. No complaints with the seats or the CVT (although I had some concerns before purchase). After researching, found that the CVT judder was mostly relegated to the '13 MY Accords (TSB fix issued by Honda). This fix has been implemented on '14 MY Accords and I have no major issues with the CVT (@6k miles now)
Standard features on the LX model: Auto headlights, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, rear view camera, standard Bluetooth, large 8" screen and direct injection. Also love the cavernous back seat, smooth handling and comfortable ride (subjective). Gas mileage with the CVT is astounding. Averaging 32+ mpg in real world conditions (mixed driving). Plenty of power (turn off econ mode and shift to S). Actually like that there is no sunroof (more headroom) in the LX model as the sunroof in the other car is rarely used.
Improve rear styling, include at least a driver side power seat, turn lights on side mirrors, fog lights and lanewatch on the LX model (although I have a feeling this will be standard in the '15 or '16 MY). Increase storage space inside armrest. Improve CVT "feel" when slowing down to real low speeds (<10 mph) so it'll feel just like a regular automatic tranny with the added benefits of a CVT (Honda's CVT much much better than Nissan's in daily driving). Remove the blind spot portion in the driver's side mirror... real distracting than anything else. Implement 60/40 split seats, and a more usable trunk space design.
