    I like the current look of the Accord better than the the Japanese version...looks sleeker and less chopped up.

    To me, our version looks bland. The best thing (in terms of exterior styling) to have come out of 2003-2007 Accord was the rear end of the coupe. It revived an old design (used in 1G TL, 2G CL) with pleasing updates and looks upscale up close, and good from a distance.

    Thanks. I actually like 'em both. When is Honda going to give us a nice pre drilled place to mount our front license plates?

    "Pre drilled place to mount our front license plates?" No problem. When a dealer delivers my car, it's their job to transfer my plates.

    Ya the dealer can attach the plate but it would be nice if it looked like it belongs rather then such a cheap after-thought.

    at the picture pf the 08 Accord Sedan that somebody posted on this thread is it just my imaganation or does the gille of the 08 Accord Sedan resemble the 96 Accord grille?

    Didn't your car come with one of these, to mount a front lisence plate to? It mounts under the lip of the bumper so there are no visible holes.

    Thanks,Elroy. My yahoo browser is having a "linking" problem so I can't see the bracket. My dealer did install some sort of bracket but they had to drill,in the mechanical sense, my bumper. Hated to watch 'em do it.

    We don't have front license plates in the Southeast.

    Lucky you! Guess that's the bad news answer.

    Actually they do!

    IMO, honda needs to start getting some new technology ready. EG, an ipod interface. Maybe something similar to Ford's Sync. Push button start (the s2k has had it since 2000! :mad: ) and cooled seats seems like something to get into now while its somewhat fresh.

    Well Superhonda isn't correct.

    Here is the true insider info from the ride and drive.

    2.4L 177 HP iVtec i4
    2.4L 190 HP iVtec v6
    3.5L 268 HP iVtec v6 w/ VCM (Sedan)
    3.5L 268 HP iVtec v6 w/o VCM (Coupe)

    Coupes aren't getting VCM. The navi will be a joystick navi with over 700 commands. No more touch screen. No DX model but 2 different lx models. LX-P adds power drivers seat, security systems, and other stuff. The Navi wont have traffic but will have bluetooth. The rumors for the full size class are true. The Rear seat will be the biggest in its class. More evolutionary then revolutionary. Hope this helps.

    Just wondering if you can confirm whether or not the Sedan with the V6 will have a manual tranny?
    Thanks.

    Huh???

    '13 Stang GT; '86 Benz 300E; '98 Volvo S70; '12 Leaf; '14 Town&Country

  • fxguyfxguy Posts: 132
    The 190HP is NOT a V6. Its a regular i4. Slight typo by the OP.
  • eldainoeldaino Posts: 1,618
    i would hope so, seeing as how if honda could eck that hp out of a 4 cyl, they should do better if it was a v-6!
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,148
    ah. ok. thanks. kind of what i figured. but what makes the difference in HP between the 2?

  • robertsmxrobertsmx Posts: 5,525
    Could be VTEC at intake and exhaust (like TSX) as opposed to only intake side. Or it could be A-VTEC!
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,148
    well, both in the list just say iVTEC, which is why i'm asking. I think it strange they would bother producing 2 different 4-bangers for the Accord. Seems like it would be more trouble than its worth.

    Not really. They have been doing that for years, and is the primary difference between the 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine in TSX compared to the 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine used in Accord/CR-V/Element.

    In TSX, VTEC is applied at intake as well as exhaust sides. This has resulted in a broader torque curve, with over 90% of (higher) peak torque available from 2000 rpm to 7000 rpm.

    Picture

    In CR-V, VTEC is applied only at intake. It has a broad torque but not quite to the levels of TSX's. 90% or better of its peak torque is available from about 2200 rpm to about 6200 rpm.

    Picture

    Honda has offered multiple engine designs on same models quite a bit. Integra was a lower volume car, but offered with three variations of similar engines (although the third had more differences than the other two, they were all B-series).

    And in Accord lineup, prior to MY1998 EX got VTEC while DX/LX didn't. 1998-2002 Accord had DX without VTEC, other two got it. 2003-2007 is the only generation to have all trims share a four cylinder engine.
