Why the 2009 Honda Accord?

Why Not the 2009 Honda Accord?

Quietness

Road noise! Road noise! Way too much. Way too much riding overexpansion joints. While the motor is pretty quiet,the very worst aspect of Hondas is the road noisecoming though into the cabin especially at speeds above 35 mph. For me the road noise is excessive and noticably worse than comparable vehicles. The level of noisewould drown out the radio.

Handling

It would be nice if the handling was tauter andit cornered better with less body roll. This car is also terriblein the snow oron snowy roadswith or without snow tires.

Ride smoothness

This car is not best on unsmoothroads. Not only can you hear the suspension groan, but the ride would get jarring and jittery.

Powertrain performance

The transmission is terrible.Muchtoslowresponding tokick downs (downshifting)when pressing accelerator and needing quick acceleration to pass another car. There would be a very noticable hesitate and then it would abruptly downshift jerking the passengers,and peg the engine rpms. Also no manual mode feature for being a full loaded vehicle.
