...and its been worse than ever lately with the new Accord out. I stopped by Honda today to check it out in person. I have to say when they first came out I was a bit indifferent toward they styling, but it grew on me and it looks SWEET in person. I was hoping they would have a manual 2.0 to test drive, but no luck. All they had were CVT's on the lot.

I turned around and hopped back in my paid off Accord and drove home, and hit v-tec a couple times on the way back for kicks and giggles haha. I may look again toward the end of the 10th gen production so they get their teething issues taken care of. Handsome looking car none the less.

Here is the link to the one I was looking at...

I hate this trend toward little 4 cylinder turbos. Looks like lots of the V6's are gone now. At least Mercedes brought one back in the new E-400.

A friend has a 2018 Accord Sport in gray, it's sweet. I'd rank it as one of my favorite Accords.

1. 1986-1989
2. 2018-
3. 2003-2007

The rest suck.

I feel like the camry/avalon/accord etc make their cars too low to the ground now..i suppose its in an attempt to bring in new clientele. I dont need to worry about backing out of my drive on an angle so i dont scrape underneath the front bumper or under the car somewhere.

I refuse to buy a CVT. They've been around a LONG time and have never proven themselves.

Just my opinion, I like those years...the rest I have zero interest in. Here's another opinion - midsize cars are for old ladies. Get something RWD

An old lady in a gold Accord bashed the side of my Jeep in mad as I'm complaining at dinner to friends, they changed it to a Camry! LOL

The other day I saw a white 18 Accord in the wild and I must say that it looks much better in real life than in pictures or even videos.
Other than that though, my 06 Mazda is still holding up well, although it needs some TLC, which will be done in spring, I'm not interested in new vehicles, especially in the same class. Nothing new I drove recently really is all that great when it comes to driving dynamics and I don't care for big touchscreens and laggy infotainment systems.
