You definitely made the right choice choosing the four over the V6.
Besides the price difference, the fact is, Honda does two things better
than absolutely anyone else: four-cylinder engines and manual
transmissions. Honda V6es are smooth and powerful enough, but they
don't have the same spirit as, say, the Nissan VQ, or a BMW six.
I don't own an Accord, and I've had my Element (same engine) less than a
year, so others will have more help as far as tips.
I think that you made the right decision. You payed MUCH less for the car
and will get better mileage than if you purchased the V6. I have the EX 4
and it has all of the power that I need and all of the power that you will
need. My only advice is to keep copies of all of your service records. You
will probably need to use them but if you do--they will help you prove
NEWSGROUP SUBSCRIBERS MOTTO
We respect those subscribers that ask for advice or provide advice.
I always find it very funny when somebody goes out and spends over 20 grand
on a car and to make themselves feel better they start asking people around
them, or on news groups.
Who cares what we think. You bought the car and your stuck with it
regardless of our opinions. Perhaps you should have researched the matter
before you bought the car.
Best advice . .
Keep the Owner's manual in the bathroom for a while until it's
memorized. Use Honda fluids for tranny and steering. Write your radio
security code inside the fuse box cover (in case you're in another city
and your Owner's manual is at home (in the bathroom) :-)
