Your car's rev-limiter would not allow your car to exceed redline, and would cause no damage to your transmission. Also, I doubt you'd be going fast enough to even HIT redline in 3rd gear...I'm positively sure it (redline)comes well after 85 MPH in third gear, faster than ANYONE should be driving their car if they're worried about transmission life!
My 1996 Accord operates in the same manner, as did our 1990 Accord, 1992 Accord, 1993 Accord, 2000 Accord, 2000 Odyssey, 2002 CR-V, and 2005 Accord. In fact, our Chrysler Sebring Convertible (unreliable as it was) had the same method. Go try all the midsizers, I'll eat my hat if they don't function the same way.

I am not specifying which Accord this applies. I read in one of the postings that $4,000 off list was their buy. A dealer here in Nashville, Tennessee offered two weeks ago the purchase of Hondas at the dealer employee price. The $750 cut to the dealer is not that "big a deal." Are they maxed out with Accord inventory and they need to move them out?

Yes, it was an automatic. Check it out at Russel & Smith. Good luck.

The sticker was $27,500.
Paid 24200+TTL included wheel locks mud guards,and trunk tray. The navi 4cyl was hard to get in Charleston,SC. So we bought from Superior motors in Orangeburg. They would not budge on the $750 dealer incentive.
Rear wing spoiler-$400 installed
Moonroof visor-$100 installed
This is our 4th honda and love the navi, so easy to use. Wish they would move the moonroof controls to the center roof. Getting 29.6 mpg so far.

Was it Darrell Waltrip Honda Volvo in Nashville? If so, be aware that they have, well at least they had recently, a huge hail damage to hundreds of their vehicles. I'm not saying they offered that price on the damaged cars. Just FYI.

was this purchase made in june or was it end of may sale?

I have an internet price of $22040+tax,title,and doc fees for a LX V6.
What do you guys think? It seems to be pretty good based on edmunds's TMV.
I'm hoping to lease and with the crazy low money factor out there right now, I could actually lease this LX V6 for less than a LX 4 cyl 5 speed (I think).

This car has a floor shift and I discovered by accident that the shift will go into neutral without pushing the button.
Nice! Its been a long time since I've been able to add to the "top 10 silly complaints" list. Thanks for changing that.
But what is worse is that when you pull the shift to get back to drive, it actually downshifts to D3.
"It" is not doing anything. YOU are downshifting it. Get your foot of the gas and shift it back into D and everthing will be dandy. What the heck are you shifting into neutral for anyway?

Been looking at posts here before I went to the dealer, got lots of useful information. Thank you!
Here is my deal:
$17990 + tax + fees, OTD $19300. How did I do?
btw, got quote from Grand Honda for $18100. Feel that could have done better.

I too just bought a 2006 Accord, and while I would also prefer that the shift stopped at D instead of D3 without pushing the button, that hardly sounds like a reason to not buy the car. I have no regrets about my purchase.
