    It looks nice, but distinctly reminds me of Mercedes...gotta be the tailights.

    Those taillamps are 100% SLK.

    I really thought it would look sportier? Maybe it is different in person? I think I may like the way the current ones look better.

    Everyone seems to be wrong. If you go to this site to look at the pics you will see in the far left corner the date was 6-15-02 and above the pic it says that official pics will come out in four days, today is the 20th.
  • wale_bate1wale_bate1 Posts: 1,986
    Seen THAT shot (thanks all the same, though).

    What's the nose look like?



  • bunk1968bunk1968 Posts: 119
    I have a shot of the front that usually accompanied the pic you said you have already seen here. I wish I could tell you the site I got it from, but it is this same car but the front end. It kind of looks like a Chrysler front end. I will send it to your email address if you want?

    Pics of the 2003 Accord in the flesh are available at

    If the '03 Accord will have any kind of sequential-shift automatic available?? I'm considering the Passat vs the Accord coupe, and VW's Tiptronic is one of the Passat's biggest advantages.
  • sphinx99sphinx99 Posts: 776
    I'd imagine it would, given how common such gadgets are becoming. (And especially considering how long Honda has had manumatics in their parts bin...
  • wale_bate1wale_bate1 Posts: 1,986
    Remember the first Preludes and that 1st/2nd shift thing? My gilrfriend back in my college days had one of those.

    Odd, but fun.

    I can't see being in that segment and not offering at LEAST a manumatic, but a sequential manual? That WOULD put them a bit ahead of the rest of the pack. Lack of a manual was a mistake in this gen, IMO...

    Can anyone tell me where I can see Pictures of the 03 coupe and not the same old spy picts that have been around a while now?? Thank you.
  • bunk1968bunk1968 Posts: 119
    I think I saw the same pict of the front end with a cloth or something bunched up on the hood. I want to know if there is any other new photo's of the Coupe 03??? So far I agree with you whotheman, the 02's look better.
  • sphinx99sphinx99 Posts: 776
    Agreed. Shifting speed/delay is far more important in an automatic than being able to tab through the gears yourself. If it shifts quickly, that is all that matters. If it shifts slowly, then a manumatic will only exaggerate the frustration.

    I hardly ever use the SS on the CL.

    I have seen the pics of the so-called '03 coupe before on the cover of Automotive News a few weeks back and have my doubts.(maybe just wishful thinking). But, the AN pics showed the front end which sports,(if you look very closely)a Chrysler emblem. Maybe (again, wishful thinking) its actually the next Sebring Coupe?
  • jsspearsjsspears Posts: 17
    So is the 2003 going to have a 3.2 liter 240 hp V6 or not? How about the 5 speed automatic from the Acura side? And when will these mechanical bits be available?
  • g_huskyg_husky Posts: 32
    Autoweek posted several new spy shots of coupe and sedan today. It appears to be very close to production form. I heard Honda make reference earlier that this was going to be far more aggressive style than they have done to Accord before. But it still looks typical Honda, rather bland and not that different from other cars currently out there.
  • whothemanwhotheman Posts: 169
    Except without the luxury stature, or anything nice. Correction, it has a 6-speed, unlike the Benz.
  • jdawnjdawn Posts: 1
    Now in the write-up, it says the V-6 is avail. in 5 spd. auto tran., then in the pics section, there is a V-6 6 spd man. tran.
    What gives. I know in the past Honda has limited the V-6 Accord to auto tran. only. Please tell me that this isn't the case with the new Accord.
  • bodydoublebodydouble Posts: 801
    The coupe will have a V6-6-speed manual combo. intro won't be until early 2003 though.
  • bowkebowke Posts: 169
    i am a dealer, and thought it about time to cease speculation. the new accord will come in the same lx and ex trim levels. the 4-cyl. models will range from $21k-$24k, and v6 models from $23k-$26k. the 4-cyl. will be the same 2.4L vtec found in the 2002 crv. the v6 will be the same 3.0L increased 20% with honda's engine magic to 240 hp. the exv6 models will also offer a satellite-linked navigation system with the stereo and climate controls incorporated in the same screen, and voice activation for all its functions.

    NOW! everyone stop griping about bland styling because the same thing happens every time honda does something new...5 years from now when the 8th gen. accord comes out, you will all be saying the same things! lol. happy honda hunting!!!
  • wale_bate1wale_bate1 Posts: 1,986

    Now, if only the power went to the correct wheels...

  • I agree with bowke above - I wonder what people were saying back in 1998 when the 6th gen Accord first came out? Probably the same things we're hearing today, and the same things we'll hear 5 years from now when the 8th gen comes out!
  • wale_bate1wale_bate1 Posts: 1,986
    'Course he's right, Mach!

    They always make a great Accord that sells. They've just never made one that I personally want to buy. Just like Buick, they seem to be doing rather well without my input or my money... ;-)
  • parker19parker19 Posts: 59
    the first month the new accords are out ... do you think dealers let them go for under sticker ... as a buyer, would anyone pay sticker
  • There is NO WAY I would pay sticker just to be 'first on the block' when you know darn well they will be discounted once the production pipeline is full.
  • bowkebowke Posts: 169
    I work in probably the largest Honda dealer in the midwest, and I know that if you want an Accord in the first model year, you will pay at least MSRP. some dealers ask for more, some dont. Your best deal will come at the dealer who ONLY asks MSRP.
    The same thing happened in '98, the same thing happened in '93...etc...etc...
    the honda accord, as you all know (or you probably wouldnt be is one of the most sought after cars in the world.

    maciavelli...i dont think your local dealer cares whether you pay his price or not...just like the Odyssey, Pilot, CR-V, and S2000...the next guy will.
