6 Speed Coupe Makes for Lively Commute

2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Been commuting in Hondas since 1989-- two Civics and one Accord, all 4- cylinder 5-speeds. All very reliable, intelligently designed, and peppy enough to pass (as long as you were already moving--and didn't have the AC on). The 6-speed coupe is a very large performance leap from the 4-cyl. Accord. A little low on torque (210 lbs.), 1st gear is something you want to punch and get out of; 2d gear, conversely, will knock your head back. Uphill acceleration is phenomenal (even with the AC on). Shifting is very smooth and intuitive. While this car loves RPMs in the 4-6k range, it is also very much at home in stop and go traffic. Love the fact that this 6- speed takes REGULAR gas. 16k and no probs.

Best Features

6-speed transmission; outstanding acceleration on the hills; reasonable gas mileage (25 highway); REGULAR gas; very comfortable seats (and very nice leather); short-throw shifter; arm rest extension.

Worst Features

Memory for the driver's seat; front posts are a little hard to see around-- especially on tight curves; go back to yellow for rear signal lights (blinking red doesn't register with most drivers).
