2013 Honda Accord Sport 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


After 8 months of ownership, the title sums it all up. I cannot think of another sedan in this segment, and at this price, that can eclipse the performance of the Accord Sport with the 6-speed manual. Good acceleration, surprisingly high cornering limits and arguably the best shifter this side of BMW. The trade off is a set of truly awful Goodyear Eagle LS 2 tires (loud, no grip in wet, overly stiff), a spartan but functional interior with terrible seat fabric and the cheapest door plastic in the industry. Also did I mention the squeaks and rattles after only 5k miles.

Best Features

Excellent handling and precise shifter. Well laid out interior with unbelievable amount of interior space. As roomy as my friends' 7-series.

Worst Features

Replaced the horrible Goodyear tires after 3k miles with Michelins, road and wind noise remain a constant bother, really cheap plastic trim from the weird polkadots on the dash to the recycled black styrofoam door panels, exterior paint limited to black or gray, punishingly hard and uncomfortable seat fabric.
