Did anyone drive the 13 Accord vs. the new 6? I'm curious because I too am a long-time Honda man who absolutely HATES the ride quality on the new Accord. After 9 months I am planning on getting rid of it, because it is miserable on all sorts of roads. I was just wondering if the 6, which is said to also have a firm ride, is better. My Accord is not just firm, it's harsh. Thanks.Report it
Brought the 6 in to have the oil changed and the dealership used 5-20 blend oil. I asked about synthetic and it is not required. If you look at the international specs 0-20 is only for north America. No doubt to comply with CAFE standards.Report it
I keep hearing the requirement for synthetic oil yet it does not state this anywhere in the owners manual.Report it
Sounds like I'm in the same boat as you. Have owned or leased a string of Honda vehicles along with having a Honda ATV and motorcycle. The newest Accord is a step in the right direction styling wise, but I'm not sure it has the sporting character I'm looking for. So while I've had lots of enjoyment with my HOnda experience, it may be time for a change. I just test drove an Optima SX and was very impressed with interior materials fit/finish etc. And there's no denying the turbo 2.0L has lots of gitty up, but not sure the driving experience is as good as it could be. Sounds like I really need to check out the 6.Report it
