#233 of 317 2009 Accord exhaust stainless steel grade
Apr 19, 2009 (11:21 am)
I was wondering if a better grade of stainless steel is standard on a 2009 Honda Accord exhaust (like a non-magnetic austenitic grade like 304), or do they just give you a ferritic grade like 409 that the muffler shops put on? I seem to remember that the original equipment on my 1995 Honda Accord exhaust lasted quite a while compared to the stuff the national muffler chains use for replacements.

It's definitely better quality than most local muffler shops use. You can buy high quality aftermarket exhaust systems, but they will cost you.
#235 of 317 Side mirrors retractable?
Apr 21, 2009 (10:35 am)
Just purchased a 2009 Accord LX sedan, but am also keeping my 95 LX sedan which still, for the most part, runs wonderfully. In comparing the two, I noted that, whereas the old Accord has hinged retractable side mirrors (ie which can fold inwards toward the car body when struck from the front - a possibly useful feature for a narrow garage door opening) the new Accord LX seems to lack this feature. The mirrors kind of look hinged, but I can't figure out how to fold them and the manual says nothing about this - so I'm assuming it's not possible (whereas it's easy to do in the old Accord).
Is that assumption correct, or I am I just doing something wrong? Any advice will be appreciated.

to answer my own question, I guess they are retractable - I just wasn't going about it in the right way, lol.

We had a few folks who were curious about the mirrors bending both ways a while back. It takes some courage to push on them hard enough for them to swivel... either way you push.

Couple of online places at decent prices...
I've dealt with Bernardiparts.com - I also bought the Honda Care extended warranty thru them...

I test drove both the 09 Accord and Camry V6 -- and bought the Accord... have had a week and put about 1K miles on it.. The accord has a stiffer more ridged ride.. but all in all.. one of the best values for the money.. love it.. paid 23800 plus tax,tag..etc.. 09 EX-L V6.
btw -- the seats aren't as soft.. but I wouldn't go as far to say that they are uncomfortable..
