Fantastic choice! The Accord is quite a good car, especially the hybrid. I was close to buying one last year but none of the dealers had them in stock and those that did, wanted no less than MSRP.

I feel my RX450h is a bit rough even with the tire pressure decreased. Once the warranty period is over, I'll be swapping out the original spring/shock for some aftermarket coilovers with softer...

Entertaining to read, but not really surprising. Even if it's a Black Series, it's still an SL at heart. Power doesn't get you through the turns quicker so the HP advantage is minimized for the SL.

Maybe it's time for you to switch from wax to spray-on coating like Carpro Hydro2. It'll last 3 months, but the application is so easy. I haven't touched wax in years.

The black box to the right of the rear view mirror? That's the rain sensor.

A hitch is definitely a must! I have a 1UP brand bike rack for my 3RX and it's a beauty. It's expensive but relatively light (alum, won't rust), made in the USA, and probably the sturdiest rack I've...

As Anita said, the hybrid is slower off the line (extra weight), but once you get up to speed (>35mph), it's quicker. Highway passing power is better in the hybrid, since you don't have to wait for...

Step 1: Trade in for RX450h. :D


The A/C was used before you picked up your vehicle. The evaporator was probably still cold so you're just feeling what's left in the system.

GTR would probably need another 60hp to match the LFA's ratio. But still, 550lbs is quite a load to chuck around.
