For real? This was posted 2 months ago. All you had to do was read this thread.

And your info is a year late. The 1.5 Touring was NOT available for the 2019 model year.

I was talking to a friend who works for Honda. He said that December 2019 is the last month the Accord Sport 2.0 manual transmission will be manufactured. It’s supposed to be discontinued for the 2021 model year too.

I hope he is wrong. I do like a manual option but Honda did say they are cutting back trim levels by 1/3 starting in 2021. There are also no more manuals scheduled to be manufactured after December at this point.

I'm not a product planner for Honda so I can't say for sure, but the Accord has been on a 5 year cycle since 1998 which means the 2021 will be a refresh of the current generation. Based purely on the past, Honda won't make any major powertrain modifications. I also thought the world was gonna end in 2012 so I've been wrong before.

What does this fellow "who works for Honda" do?

As it is, with the manual only available for the sport trim, they've severely cut down on numbers. If anything, this should've helped Honda because now they only have to fit MTs on two variants, the 1.5 and 2.0 Sport, instead of the old lineup of all trims and combos except for the v6 sedan for 9th gen. Sad, but money drives all of these decisions when they eventually do happen

Industrial engineer.
Really? This is your response? "Industrial Engineer".

Are you guys laughing, or are you trying to figure out how to save the troll post?

Burrito.

Who's next in this game of "random words and phrases"? Kidding -- I assume what you're saying is that you have a friend who works for Honda as an Industrial Engineer, and he has inexplicably shared production schedules for the Accord with you. Amirite?
Astute assessment. My guess is that Friend believes he's prev-yd to confidential information that is most likely inaccurate.

I'm not sure if this is just for the 2020 model year or if it is permanent. The Accord is up for a MMC for MY2021 after all...but according to several sources the 6MT combos are no longer being produced for the 2020 model. A source over at vtec.net has confirmed it, several in the Accord groups on facebook have confirmed it as well.

I hope it stays for the MMC...cause I'm holding out to get one once the MMC happens but if its automatic only I'm gonna pass.

Any sales people/Honda big wigs in here heard this news?

Man, that is unfortunate if true. We must save the manuals!
I used to buy them and agreed with the sentiment. Then automatics got better and faster than one can row their own gears, and I jumped ship. I don't expect manual transmissions on sedans will exist much longer.
