This gen Accord is a great design - I prefer the pre-refresh Sport model without all the tacky chrome and hideous grill.

64% and 68% are a HUGE difference when it comes to residual!

You also got great pricing off MSRP as a previous employee which you didn't include in your original post. Now at least it makes sense.

He will be lucky if the GT86 lives to see next generation.
