Hi,

I am planning to purchase a Honda Accord Used Car. I am stuck in chosing either one of these two options :

2011 Accord EX-L V6 - Sedan - Mileage : 61500 miles (Price 15,500 USD)
2012 Accord EX V4 -Sedan - Mileage : 49000 miles. (Price 14000 USD)

Given that, I want to drive the car for another 30k miles and trade in for another new one, which of these two options is preferrable?

    Newer, lower miles, cheaper, better gas mileage.

    Easy choice

    I have a 4 banger Accord (2015) and it has all the power I need.  No need for a 6, IMHO.

    I agree and I also agree that the four cylinder is more than adequate. Few people actually "need" a V-6 in an Accord.

    This is just a cost v. personal preference question. Either of those cars should have no trouble serving you well for another 30k assuming they are both properly maintained and in good condition.

    If I were buying an Accord I'd get the V6. The 4-cyl is certainly adequate, but I like the extra power enough to spend the extra money.
