Absolutely. I haven't seen an Accord on my local dealer's lot in at least 4 months. Maybe longer.What this thread overlooks is that the car business is still suffering from the chip shortage and resulting low production. Some at the WSJ see this being over sometime in 2023, manufacturing returning to pre-Covid levels in 2024. The current market is not forever.
While I’m not familiar with half the model names you listed, your point is well taken. It’s just not as important as before, but even then, I still wish that it would last. After all, it’s only a car that’s been part of my life in one shape or another in 14 out of last 16 plus years…. You know, it’s kind of hard to accept the idea that it might be gone one day.Last month, the Accord accounted for only 16% of the total number of units sold (and less than that in terms of revenue). The Accord and Civic together accounted for only one-third (32%) of Honda's total sales.
Ten years ago, the Accord accounted for 30% of sales. The Accord and Civic accounted for over half (52%) of Honda's sales.
20 years ago, sedans and coupes accounted for nearly two-thirds (65%) of Honda's sales.
While the Accord name is memorable and was an important part of Honda's past, it is less important to Honda's future. Fiesta, Focus, Escort, Pinto, LTD, Grenada, Thunderbird, Crown Victoria, Probe, Taurus, Model T, Model A, Tempo, Coutour, and Galaxie were all an important names to Ford at one time. Today, they're mostly irrelevant.
What is the disconnection between a hybrid and being an apartment dweller?
I hope that did play a part in their current lineups. If not, if they’re serious about going electric, I hope they at least come out with a high performing PHEV version by MMC.What this thread overlooks is that the car business is still suffering from the chip shortage and resulting low production.

There are lots of plug-in hybrids. Are you OK?You don't plug in a hybrid.
A plug in EV would definitely not work for the majority of apartment dwellers; hybrids are perfect in this case.

Maybe "character" is why I find the 11th. generation so boring and anonymous looking. Without the badges as a clue, it could be any of half a dozen other Asian cars.I don’t think the 11th gen is ugly. I just think it’s more reserved and doesn’t have the design character that the 10th gen had. The worst thing is the axing of the 2.0 T.
That's because people gifted with being highly intelligent lack common sense. Not everyone, but a decent chunk.Keep in mind that a lot of the same people are the ones designing these computers.
The people I've talked to in IT have actually told me quite the opposite, they find themselves trusting computers even less.
I traded in my 2015 Mazda 6 (Manual) for a 2019 Accord Sport (10AT) and not a day goes by that I don't have regrets about it....If reliability was my top priority, I'd look to Mazda first then Toyota. Honda has moved some of their reliability budget to styling and technology in an effort to appeal to a broader audience.
I'm with you on Kia/Hyundai. The Telluride and Palisade make the Pilot and MDX look and feel cheap, but I still wouldn't buy one with my own money.
It was fun to dream about.Rumor is that their Mazda 6 replacement will be RWD and comes with a V6
