I wonder if the first aid kit comes with 5 year warranty.
It is fine to have all-weather mats as an option but about time automakers included floor mats as a part of the car. Honda started doing that in $20K and up cars several years ago.

Honda did start including the mats with the price of the car -- but as soon as they did, the quality of the mats decreased! Robertsmx --Have you compared your 98 mats (which were not included) to the mats in the 08s? I give my new 08 mats about 1-2 years, at most, of useable service. I liked when they weren't included and they were better quality. Plus, when I bought my 98 Accord new, I flat out told the salesman that it was not acceptable that the car didn't come with mats and that the dealership would either throw in the mats for free, or I would walk away from the deal -and I would have. I got the mats. I took care of them and they lasted for 10 years.

I can't imagine the mats being any worse than the ones I had to purchase (well, "thrown in"). But I really like the mats that came in the TL (of course, it isn't a mainstreamer). Will have to "look" for standard mats in the newer Accords to draw a conclusion though.

First thing I do with a new car is buy a set of WeatherTech mats, take out the factory mats and save them for when I get rid of the vehicle.

I do. A wife told her husband his car is his Queen and she is only his free maid.

I like the styling of the Accord over the Camry. The reason I don't have a new Camry in my driveway is that I have no real, dependable numbers to work with, the dealers in this part of the Northeast don't advertise much anymore..
Plus, they are all loading the cars with mats, etched glass, and hefty Conveyance fees....
But,, getting back to the topic,, If we look at an Accord Lx/p? versus a Camry LE,, which is the better bargain, and/or vehicle overall??

In my opinion - the Honda is probably marginally better, or the best. However, the Camry is damn good, and the major difference between the two, is the Honda is sportier. The Honda is tighter handling, tighter fitting, and has a much sportier feel to it than the Camry. The Camry is more open, more relaxed in the feel, steers easier, rides smoother and feels a little more "boulevard" than the Honda. So, it's mostly a matter of preference, either the looks, or the feel. I personally prefer then Camry over the Accord, for all the reasons above - I'm beyond sporty at this age. However, if you don't want to be mistaken for someone who drives a Crown Victoria, the Honda may be more to your liking. Best of luck.

WAIT A MINUTE!!!! I would love a new Crown Vic!!!
If I didn't dislike Ford Motors, and their scummy dealers I would probably have one..
But, I know what you mean about the cars.. But, why would Honday produce a car that has flickering headlights with the AC on???
And, why would Toyota allow its Camry to be confused as to when to go into overdrive?? Neither manufacture wants to admit they have some engineering flops on their hands.... I don't know. First I was with the Camry, then I checked out the Accord,,, Looks better to me, but after reading the reviews about city mileage and the flickering lights,, I may go for the Camry..
Regards and thanks.

I agreed with you. I prefer Honda, which looks and performs more sportily than Camry.

It's an ACCORD, a piece of so fine art and also a piece of highly sophisticated engineering.
The sporty guy who have owned and strongly loved every single knob of his 8 sporty Accord & Civic excluding a number of Honda motorcycles. Amen & Amen !
