my commute is about 40 miles round trip and I've worked 5 nights so far since picking up the car and driven every day. The car had about 100 miles on it when I took delivery, and most of those miles were from my two test drives.

That would explain it. I'm glad I don't have a long commute anymore - though I do have some traffic so I still have 20-30 minutes for only 6-7 miles.

well, maybe you should. you might even be able to afford an accord lx manual, at least if you lease it. the wait time for an lx manual to come into the dealer is another question. :x :arrow: :twisted:

I must admit I was impressed with this car. Low end torque and all.

the torque is better than in most other 4 cylinder hondas, but it will let you know it's not a V6 if you go low enough. up higher it's harder to tell though.
