2012 Honda AccordMichael Smith - Wilmington, NC08/10/2015
If you want an affordable manual (6 speed) transmission with a peppy V-6 engine in a two-door coupe, this may be the car for you. The EX-L line is generally pretty well built (though the 2012 has a bit more plastic than my previous 2004 EX-L V6 coupe) and the gas mileage is 3 mpg less (on long trips). But, it uses unleaded fuel, gets 30 mpg, handles well (though the larger wheels with the nitrogen fill make it a bit bouncy on choppy concrete roads such as I-95). The 2012 has a smaller rear window view (need the side mirrors) and the trunk is slightly smaller (and no cargo net). The fold down rear seat is much better than the 2004. The controls of the radio/media system are a bit backwards, but you can figure them out easily.
Awesome fun and statisfying
2013 Honda AccordB Rob - Charlotte, NC08/03/2016
This is my 3rd Accord, but this is the first Accord I have owned in a V6 manual, and I love it. It gives great power, ESPECIALLY when you downshift and operate the car above 4000 RPMS. it sounds amazing and if you are a manual enthusiast like I am its definitely a fun drive. I get decent gas mileage on the highway, but not to great in the city, as it is hard to control yourself to normal driving habits because the car responds so quickly! the double screen is a great help so you are able to see your navigation screen as well as what you're listening to on the radio, and the right lane camera eliminates you having a blind spot.
Roomy interior. Back seats can handle an adult as easily as the front seats can. Quick acceleration and the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) eliminates traditional automatic shifting points and helps to keep vehicle highway speed constant when going up inclines. Few if any blind spots.
