Nice car, photos don't do the car justice.

1. Get Camera
2. Put pretty girl in car
3. Take photo
4. Profit ???

Nice. We are get the 4 door V6 in March. Was very impressed after driving the car. Does yours have the right side camera in the dash?

This car has renewed my faith in Honda. I REALLY wish they would just stop with the Crosstour and make a proper AWD wagon.

4 cylinders have CVT vs an auto now. Supposed to be really good, but will have to see if it suffers from any first year issues or future issues, ala the 2012 Altima's CVT.

Great looking car. I'd love a sedan sport myself. They look incredible.

We want one so bad. Have had 2 previous Accords and they are reliable as *hit. I love how the new ones look. I just wish the Sport edition had more than 2 color options lol. That's what we get for wanting it in manual

At least we have the choice.

I'm not a fan of the lower reflectors in the rear, but overall a very nice car. I'm looking forward to the plug-in hybrid, which might be my next daily driver. I'll probably drive my current Accord for another 90,000 to make it an even 300,000 first, though.

I have a 2009 EX-L sedan. 85k on the clock (I love to drive, what can I say), and it has been dead-on reliable. Nothing but scheduled fluid changes to date.

It eats about half a quart of oil every 4000 miles, which is fine by me. The OCIs are really long, and I put Mobil 1 EP and a good filter in every time.

Nice Car OP! However, I would love it if Honda introduced an Accord wagon option on a similar to the TSX wagon. Don't even try to convince me that the crosstour is an option. That thing is fugly.

Agree, its horrible, and that is why its unbelievably rare. Same with the ZDX. I've seen maybe 2 or 3 of each in my life.

I don't know why, but I like the CrossTour. I recognize why most people think it's ugly but I like it.
