    Hi folks,
    I was thinking of purchasing a 2009 ish tourer, maybe a 2.2 I-DTEC ES GT.
    Do you know if the radio has long wave band.?
    Do all/ any Accords have long wave reception?

    Thank you

    Hi Newcar

    My 2008 7th generation EX Accord with the Premium Sound System has Long Wave, and the handbook states that all the other audio system types that may be fitted also have Long Wave.

    My 2010 with Premium Sound System has long wave - second press of the AM button - and it works very well down here in France, 280 miles from the north coast, which must make it about 425 miles range if the BBC is still using the old LW transmitter near Droitwich.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.
    Lack of longwave has been a deal breaker in the past.

    Thinking of purchasing an 8th Generation tourer, must try and do some test driving.
    Unfortunately the tests drives will be the salon rather than the tourer.
    Will the drive feeling / handling of the tourer be significantly differant from the tourer.
    A lot of my driving is motorway with plenty of A roads as well.

    I currently have a mazda 6 hatch.

    thanks again
