2010 Accord - Grown up Civic with the fun removed
Well, after 3 years of a Civix CDTi EX I am now the proud owner of an Accord iDTEC EX.
After 1500 miles, I thought I'd summarise my findings between the 2 steeds..
(+) Great fun, handling, economy, space and practicality
(-) Very noisy suspension, hard ride, crap radio reception and a few too many faults (repaired under warranty) for my perceived quality of a Honda.
(+) Very refined, good handling and ride, very comfortable and the best standard fit hi-fi of any car I have owned. Voice commands and dialling are understood!! Super slick gearbox.
(-) Tight legroom in the back, boot not nearly as good as a hatchback, the grin has gone from my face replaced with a contented middle aged smirk.
Economy so far has been 44 mpg, so getting better as the engine loosens up.
Summary as per thread title - a grown up Civic which is better in most respects, but with the fun gone!! (boo-hoo)
