      Are you upset that there's no more V6? Gimmicky temperature control knobs? Great infotainment? Enough luxury features for the price?

      Ok you don't like the Chromed out grilles on cars. Look at the new Hyundai Sonata and tell me what you like better on that, the black honeycombed grille or the chrome grille??

      PLEASE DONT BUY THIS TRASH*****
      my accord almost killed me, braking system failed multiple times. Honda couldn't fix the problem. It has been 2 months and they are on their 4th part replacement. In my opinion dont buy honda and especially their HYBRIDS. I'm WARNING you. costumer serives is terrible, no one gets back to you, I have went back and forth with the head office and dealer ship. This is not how I imagined my new car Experience. I wish I went with the Toyota my second option at the time. Honda has no reliability***
      I want to help as many people now.

      If you like or hate that all these Manufacturers are getting rid of the 6 cylinder and using the 4 cylinder turbo. Well you have Hyundai to thank or lash out to. Not that it's really there fault that all the other manufacturer's are COPYING off them

      My brother got one, it has the 1.5 liter turbo, it leaks gas into the oil, and there isn't any known way to solve it other than changing the oil more frequently...

      I would take it to the nearest dealership immediately. This should be covered fully by the warranty.

      The accord has always been a damn good car but now Honda has hit it out of the park with this car. I might consider buying used in a few years. Test drove a loaded touring 2.0t and the thing is very quick and surprisingly a good handling car

      The only Acura worth buying would be the RDX until the rest of their cars get a refresh.

      2017 model was still better looking. It also had the V6 which I like over the turbo. Even if the turbo is a bit faster I would choose the V6 due to its sound and long term reliability

      This car looks so much better with time. I was not looking its looks when it first came out, but I really like how it seems more refined and classy yet sporty at the same time. The new Camry although striking at first now just seems too overly done. Honda hit out of the park with the interior, but the exterior has now gone through all the bases

      I drove a 9th gen V6 coupe and a current 10th gen 2.0t manual Sport on the same day? Guess which I thoroughly enjoyed more? That's right, the older one.
