Why the 2009 Honda Accord?

Reliability & durability

Proven track record. Have owned other accords

Handling

Feeling of confidence in that the car will do exactly as asked. Road feel

Fuel economy

Car never feels underpowered - in fact will kick from a green light with the best out there, yet return 30 mpg average. Can drive all day for $20

Powertrain performance

Responsive trottle. Engine runs willingly up to the redline. Slickest shifter on the planet in a 5 speed manual. (I test drove others). My daughter commented that she cant feel when I shift. I like the way the gear shifter clicks into gear as if sucked in

Driving position & visibility

No apparent blind spots. Always have a sense of awareness of everyone around - a relaxed driving position is easy to obtain. Can cruise all day without getting tired in the shoulders and arms.

Why Not the 2009 Honda Accord?

Exterior styling

Too many creases. Rearend looks like it has a tacked on baseball cap turned backwards. From the front however, killer looks.

Audio & nav systems

Bass too boomy, not deep and rounded. Not easy or maybe impossible to replace the stock unit. May try replacing the deck speakers. Nav - I dont know, dont have one, my Invion works fine.
