2008 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


The new Accord coupe, with the V6 and manual transmission reminds me of the departed Acura CL Type-S. The Accord is a great value for the money. It's very comfortable, has pretty much every luxury feature you might want, and is still fun to drive. I will warn you though, that if you drive it like it should be driven, gas mileage isn't the best. I've been averaging around 20 mpg with a city/highway ratio of 70/30. The suspension is definitely firm, but in no way harsh. The V6 is buttery smooth all the way to redline, and it has plenty of pull.

Best Features

V6 and 6 speed manual combination, surprisingly good handling, luxury interior.

Worst Features

The audio system plays MP3s and WMAs, but doesn't read the ID tag information. However, it does show the folder and file names, so it's not a total loss. The navigation system has a "direct route" option, and an "easy route" option, but not a "fastest route" option.
