#1 of 10 2008 v6 vs 2009 v6
Jan 11, 2009 (7:07 pm)
The 2008 and 2009 V6 engines appear to be identical, but the 2008 is listed at 268 hp and the 2009 is listed at 271. What was changed?

We can discuss this in the 4cyl vs 6cyl and be okay. I heard that they had done this so that it may fix the vibrating with the VCM. But, that is only what I have seen. Others can probably clarify more.
See you there.

no change - just recalibrated over 2008 - 3 HP? No change to the engine
#4 of 10 Picked up 09 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 6Spd w/Navi
Feb 08, 2009 (9:33 am)
Ordered my 2009 Accord Coupe in early January, it was built at Marysville on 1/18 and I picked it up yesterday. Had to order to the exact car I wanted:
V6 and 6 Speed Manual
Belize Blue / Black
The Belize was the hard one - only four were made in January in this trim at Marysville out the 25k cars built
The car is absolutely perfect. The V6 is very powerful and the six speed is very precise. The Belize Blue is the most incredible blue paint I have every seen.
It took me about three minutes to figure out the Navi, XM Radio, and HVAC controls. All the reviews about the Accord's "overly complex center section" are BS IMO. The navigation system is very intuitive with the knob/pointer/mouse.
I didn't realize it had a trip computer as part of the Navi system - I had resigned myself to not having that once I decided not to get a TSX or another TL. I got 25 mpg on the combined drive home yesterday.
Paid $27.7k including destination or right at $1300 under invoice.
This is my eighth Honda and so far the best in terms style, driving, power, and features.

#7 of 10 Fan Switch, Accord Coupe EX-L '09

I can't seem to turn the fan switch on without the A/C engaging. Is there a certain trick to this? Again, I just want fresh air circulating at times and so hit the fan switch, but the A/C always comes on too.

Hit the switch labeled A/C---that toggles the AC on and off. There will be a light on the display indicating whether it is on or off. It's separate from the fan switch. pg
