Haven't logged in to this forum in awhile.

10/20/11: I traded in my '00 Accord EX for this, then added coil-overs and 18's:

Great car but at only 45,000 miles it's showing a tendency to rust in random locations. My 6GA went through many tough winters and had not one spot of rust. Now I'm looking at the '13 Accord Sport ;) Unless I find a clean, low mile 6GA with a manual of course...

Looks nice sitting lower and with bigger wheels. Guy I work with drives one, I always felt like it was missing something...must've been that. ha

9GA and 6GA are two completely different cars...

Thanks! The B6 (2006-2010) Passat was made in Germany. The new B7 (2010+) are made in Tennesee for N. America only. The turbo motor is no longer an option and they are not as sporty.

Anyone have insight on the 9th gen Accord? I've been searching and reading random reviews - all very positive so far. Definitely interested in the Sport trim or maybe an EX couple with the 6MT. Official 0-60 in 5.6 seconds for the V6 manual. Wow.

Yea the new Passats arent bad looking, they're just very generic and boring. And not exciting like the Passat GLS VR6's of old.

To me the 9GA is Honda back on their game, and for the first time in a while the sedan looks better than the coupe. Since the 7thgen though, Honda has had great interiors, so they had that down. Just the exteriors were lacking, until now. I would definitely buy a 9thgen Sport sedan IF they offered something other than FWD.

Jephu just picked up a 9GA 2dr, he might have some insight on it. Here’s his thread:

these cars need larger rims.. those 18s look so small haha

if u want another accord, the 9ga sedan is a good choice

they even have a 50 mpg hybrid version :bukkake: :boink:

be like it is
really like the location in the first shots, definitely abandoned but not trashed.

also always liked the B6 interior...just hope you dont have to replace the comfort module :lawl:

on the 9th gen accord sport...its just an LX with 19" wheels and a couple extra horsepower. very disappointing since the V6s are pretty quick. oh, and no moonroof on the sport.
