Would you say the 05-07 looks better then? I want to know your opinion.yes. The accord got a mid generation refresh for 2006-2007. Here are some highlights...
In 2005 for its 2006 model year, which was its 30th anniversary, the North American Accord received a mid-generational refresh, though it was fairly significant and some enthusiasts called this generation 7.5.
The exterior was revised with a new front grille later seen on the eighth-generation Honda Civic which also debuted that year, new rear end styling with triangular LED taillights, daytime running lights (DRLs) and heated side mirrors for US EX models. Heated mirrors and DRLs were previously available only on Accords sold in Canada. The 2006 model year also featured new wheel designs, with 17" rims being standard on V6 models. Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), traction control, and Brake assist became available on the V6 models for the first time. Previously, the system was named TCS and included the traction control and brake assist, but not stability control.
The interior was also slightly redesigned with changes such as a new steering wheel cover, differently colored gauges and a differently styled shift knob for automatic transmission models. The GPS Navigation system was updated (4th generation) with a faster processor, more memory, and several new features, such as restaurant information from Zagat. A revised maintenance minder system was also added which gave owners reminders for scheduled maintenance such as oil changes based on operating conditions.
Also starting in 2005 all accords got side curtain airbags.
I will respectfully disagree.My preference is the 03-05 model years, and not just because I own one. The overall styling was more cohesive in those years. The 2006 and 2007 do not flow, especially the rear end. If I could have afforded one I would've purchased a TSX of that vintage. Best looking of the bunch by far in my opinion. And with a 6? manual to boot!
I agree, though having an 06, I could be partial to the 7.5....also, nobody mentioned some of the issues the early 7th gens transmissionsI will respectfully disagree.
I think they all look good, especially if made to look so.
I think the 06-07 rears look much better, however, just because of the LED tails, and the more segregated L+R assemblies. To me it just looks so damn sexy.
I can see that, except when I see a 7th gen, I don't say to myself "oh look, a 2005" or whatever it is. To me, it's a 7th gen, and I admire the beauty that is the 7th gen, no matter which year. That being said, I still prefer the 06-07. I think the rear end was designed well.I agree, though having an 06, I could be partial to the 7.5....also, nobody mentioned some of the issues the early 7th gens transmissions
