I think this car deserves its own discussion
#2 of 68 New Owner: Accord 6mt sedan
Nov 03, 2006 (9:30 pm)
Just turned in my 2004 civic si. Decided I needed to grow up a little bit, having a family of 5. If the 2007 accord 6mt is growing up then I'm there. hoping there are more grown ups like me out there who still enjoy driving a stick with some power!

...a few of us survive - -(not nearly enough to convince Toyota - for example - to offer more 5M/6M vee-hicles....).

I already don't like stop and go traffic. If I had a manual transmission I would hate it. Too me, an automatic is so much easier. Everyone has his or her own priorities though, so what I like, is not necessarily what you like. Only you can decide which is right for you. My truck is a manual, and it's just a hassle IMO.

To offer the flip side (but not to disagree with elroy)... I drive in a lot of stop and go traffic and I love the manual. Lots of coasting, especially when going downhill. I find that my mileage doesn't suffer nearly as much as I thought it would.
However, I'll bet I'm in the minority on this one. Of course, I'd be bored to death with an automatic.
#7 of 68 Manual or Auto
Nov 05, 2006 (7:56 pm)
I have a different reason for not buying the manual and that is resale value, Even though the MT and AT are the same price new(V6), I have to believe in 3 or 4 years the manual will be worth at least $1000 less than the AT. I know this is speculation however it's a demand issue, The demand for the AT is much greater. Just couldn't justify throwing money away on a manual.
#8 of 68 performance and fun

For me it's ez, performance and fun. I looked at a few other cars in the price range ie: mazda speed6, although equally oufitted the mazda goes up to $32k+, the acura tsx and the subaru impreza. none of these dealers could come close to the lease deal I received on the honda. Even so, I love the combination of sportiness and luxury the Accord comes to the table with, and that's without any options.

That hasn't been my experience... there is always someone who is looking for a manual. Of course, the auto costs more up front too.

Actually, in the V6 Accord, the 6-speed manual is the exact same price as the 5-speed Automatic.
