Very nice. My Uncle has a 6 month old Accord with all the options. V6, leather, navi and everything. It's such a blast to drive.

The cool thing about those IMO is that from the rear and side they kinda resemble a BMW and the front looks kinda like a new lexus. DEF. worth every penny you paid for it! I had a 06 civic ex and loved it. When i get my truck paid off i DEF. plan on buying another new honda!!

That always makes me laugh. The police and Government are ALWAYS crying about speeders and trying to make safer roads, yet vehicles are being manufactured and being sold with speedometers that indicate very high speeds. Sure there are governors that probably prevent the vehicle from doing 160 MPH, but seriously, why post it then if it can't.

Just another one of those quirks that make me wonder.

Looks good! Unlike the new camry (and all new toyotas for that matter), honda has atleast kept their cars not looking so cheap and ultra plastic looking. If I wanted a mid-level sedan I would definitely consider one of those in addition to a Passat or the new CC.

160 on the clock is a joke. You need bottle rockets glued on the tires to even get near that speed in that

Who cares what the speedo reads? Its a nice car. Newer cars that are capable of reaching high speeds are electronically limited to 155 anyway.

if my old 94 could hit this fully loaded with a mountain bike on the roof




then 160 is possible in a new one if the governor is removed

and yes thats the cruise control light
