Went from S2000 to Accord Cpe V6 w Nav
By Joseph on


2008 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I turned in my S2000 for the Accord Coupe V6 w/ Nav and auto trans. I must say the nav is fun to play with, still getting to know all the functions and voice command. The stereo and XM radio is great. The speedo/tach is a little boring compared with the new Civics and S2000, but it's bright and legible at night. There is a faint pull when the cylinders switch from 6 down to "eco" mode, but it's very faint. Ride and handling are great as is the power, though pretty unimpressed with overall fuel economy but at least it doesn't take premium (averaging 23 mpg). But it looks hot, so for me, switching from an S2000 to this was important. People will gawk.

Best Features

Navigation, interior illumination, plenty of power, sleek exterior, smooth ride, handles well. Love the XM radio, ability to change navi screen colors. Large trunk, adequate back seats, power up and down windows. Looks great in black. :)

Worst Features

Don't see a point in the ability to turn off cylinders if the fuel economy isn't that great. Needs xenon headlights. Would love paddle shifters. Navi graphics/interface could be better. Get rid of the boring speedo/tach and put something fun like the Civic or S2000.
