Just bought a 2011 EX V6 Luxury today, to replace our 2007 EX V6 Luxury that helped save one of my family members in a bad accident. The 2007 was such a good car that it could only really be replaced by a new one.
Differences I have noted between the 2011 and the 2007 - the new ones have black leather as opposed to grey, a backup camera with an auto dimming mirror, Sirius satellite radio with USB port and aux hookup, different rims and a different brand of tires. Plus the steering wheel and shifter leather is now grained instead of smooth, there is no cargo light on the side but rather it is now in the ceiling, and the pop-out ashtray is missing.

Glad it helped save a family member, that's important, the car is just a piece of metal. The pop-out ashtray disappeared with the 2008 model, as well as the rubber grips in the front cupholders and elastic at the back of the glove compartment and the rear side cargo light.
The inside gas cap release on the door is back with the 2011 model as it was just opened from outside with the 2009 and 2010 models. Black became standard on the inside starting with the 2009 model. I would like the USB hookup, the AUX was placed in the lower part of the armrest starting with the 2008 model.
Have they fixed that rear ceiling light to go on when you open on the back door as it didn't happen with the 2008 - 2010 models.

Nope, the rear ceiling light doesn't come on with the back door.
