qotd how we feeling about that new honda accord

Today's QOTD is straightforward and simple. The Honda Accord is one of the most well-known (and most popular, in terms of sales) nameplates on market. So when there's a new one, which happens every four to five years, people take note.

Obviously, we haven't driven the car yet, but we know the specs, and we know it's a bit down on power compared to the outgoing model. We know there is no 2.0T gasser, at least right now, and the manual was already killed for 2021 and ain't coming back. So that's disappointing.

Of course, being down on power doesn't mean the car will be slower. It may remain as fun to drive as the current model, or perhaps be more or less so. It does look different, of course, and style matters.

So, ye of the B and B, do you like this new Accord? Hate it? Like the looks but mourn the loss of the 2.0T and/or the 6MT? Maybe you're taking a wait-and-see approach -- maybe you won't judge it til you see it at an auto show or on a dealer lot.

Let us know. And if you have critical yet constructive feedback, maybe Honda folks will be reading.

    Now at about 150k you will have to pay 3k to replace the hybrid battery. Way better off with an ICE engine. Not buying a hybrid until the cost to replace one drops significantly. So much for driving a Honda for years without a car payment.

    My 2.4 9th gen motor has proven to be much more reliable than that 1.5 turbo has been. The 2.0 was a terrific engine and they used it for 1 gen??? Honda shoots themself in the foot all the time.

    The problematic 1.5-liter turbo power plant and a mandatory CVT kill this car as a serious option for me. Recent overall Honda reliability doesn't help either. Honestly, I never thought I'd say this, but a Toyota Camry SE seems like a much better option among sedans.

    Styling is delightfully inoffensive, but Honda dealers tend to act like their feces are divine perfume and treat a person like an insect unless they look at the CR-V. Also financially they've never worked for me.

    I have a CX-5 Turbo that treats me well. I'm good.

    I have 2018 Accord 2.0 Touring with 46,000 miles. Intend to keep it in the family as long as possible. It will probably be the best ICE “family car” ever made. 2023 styling is cleaner, but hybrid is slower and I never liked the 1.5 with CVT.

    I was looking at old 0-60 times in cars I’ve owned, along with gas mileage. This Accord does 0-60 in 5.5 seconds per C/D. Vastly better than previous Acura Integra, Legend and TSX, and same as my 2005 S2000. Gas mileage better than all of them.

    Sorry—not for sale.
