Hi all, So, having now had my new Accord D-TEC EX Auto for 6 weeks, and done 2k miles, I thought I'd comment on some initial thoughts, having never owned a Honda before. Likes...very smooth and quiet, relaxing, and comfortable for long motorway drives and economical too, averaging 46.9mpg so far. Also like the fact I hardly ever see another one (unlike the German competition!!), but can't help but wonder why Honda don't market the car more? I stumbled across it, am very glad I did, and if I came to this conclusion surely others would too...? Mind you, that did mean that the deal when I bought it was pretty good... I also find the sound system quality excellent, and although the satnav looks a bit old fashioned I find it works well and is easy to follow, which is the most important thing. General build quality and finish of both the interior and exterior is particularly impressive, easily the equal of other cars I looked at from Mercedes, Audi etc. Dislikes...not 100% convinced by the styling. Every time I see a 7th Generation car I can't help feeling that it looks better - just sort of more complete, without some of the touches that feel like they have been added for the sake of it (front and rear light design especially). Maybe it's just me? Other than that, my only other gripe so far is that I already have a couple of stone chips on the front, but given that it spends its life on the M1 no surprise really. My previous VW also suffered the same... Feels like a great choice so far!
