The Accord has been awesome but I've just come to accept that it's not replaceable. Accord 2.0t is ugly, a 4 banger and has wheels that would be frustrating to own, Camry's are expensive and that moonroof can cost 12k to fix, TRD Camry has that stupid wing is way to boy racerish. That leaves the Kia, but it's a Kia,. So glad to have had it. Put 9k miles on it since February visiting the kids in college. I have a 20 Passport, 21 RAV4 and a 15 CRV. Accord has the highest insurance, has developed the starter issue, a very, very slight oil seep (probably from the main seal) and the timing belt should be due. I'm just waiting for my daughter to return from her summer job so we can move to 3 cars when she goes back to school. We are passing down the CRV to our other daughter whom ironically, just started working for GM so I'm sure there is a Chevy in her future.. I will miss the smoothness and effortless power of the Accord while still returning the best MPG's of all our cars.. I just changed the ATF today, pairing down some of the fluids I still have left over. I keep on flip flopping as to whether I need a truck again, another sedan for fun factor or just use the Passport. I'll probably just use the Passport I really like it except for 2 things, it's slow and boring. I check the KBB every day and the Accord is starting to drop, the things we do for our kids. Sorry you didn't get the V6. When I got the Accord I was actually at the dealer to do a deal on the Crosstour but when I looked at the Accord I loved the simple, classy looks. I never got tired of driving the Accord.^^You may want to think twice if you're not having issues. I've be car shopping last few months. Newer cars are just not the same as the pre 2017 models. Too much tech, various issues with turbo engines. In fact, I don't even fit int he new accord with the center stack redesign (look up accord/knee issues).
Wish we got the 6 cyl model back in 2015 instead of the 4. It would of easily been a car for a decade or more.
Not sure.Does that common starter issue applies to 9th gens with standard transmission?
