The accord is just like every other honda, all hp no torque. Sure that car has 240hp but it is all top-end power. Plus, it is front-wheel drive. Knowing the need for power, speed, and handling from the members of this forum, I wouldn't recommend the accord.
Im with STIObserver, 4 wheels spinning at all times baby! (Well, and the occasional two in the rear is acceptable )
Ah yes, the dreaded FWD (don't like it either, given a choice)...
Marine, glad to hear you're with me on the 4-wheel front.
And yes, you are right, Hondas are not torquey... but I have learned to live without torque for now with my Honda del Sol - the VTEC kind of makes up for it a little - but you need to pull a lot of revs. Anyway, I like Hondas in general...
I looked into the Altima as well as the Accord.
The Altima seems pretty impressive from a general standpoint, but I had two major complaints about it:
1) Nissan loves to suck you in with a low MSRP, and then kill you on the options!! If you load up the Altima 3.5 SE, I think you add somewhere between $8K and $12K :x
2) What a cheap-s&*t interior (at least on the '02 model - haven't seen the '03)...
I agree with you. I personally feel that Honda makes THE BEST engines in the world..period. Although the engines in their passenger cars are not torquey, they are great engines that will keep on going and typically they are free-revving engines. I have a 90 Accord DX that although has seen better years keeps on ticking and runs strong.
Best car I've owned from a reliability standpoint. Fun car to drive too.
For that kind of money I'd just as well buy another WRX. Or save up for an STi.
I'd look into the 6-speed Accord as a commuter car...if I had the money to maintain 2 new cars (OK I have 2 right now, but the Civic is paid for. It's all mine )
Yep I agree with all that regarding torque, etc. It's fun blowing past hondas and hilarious to hear the fart-can sound affects as they make a poor attempt to keep up! Just yesterday I saw yet another old Honda with a big ass ugly spoiler on the back...geez! It's FWD!! I had to take a picture of it, damn it was silly!
A friend asked me what laptop she should buy. Her current laptop is a compaq turd and would like something better. She uses this laptop for very basic photo editing, internet, and ms office.
I used to follow laptops but haven't been in touch w/them for a while and not sure what to recondmend...
Pretty much say whatever you wnat and what not. I figured since most forums have one we should have one here as well.:notsure: I guess this way we will not clutter up threads that are dedicated to meets or different topics here in the Nor Cal section, lmk what you guys think.
Hello everyone, I want to discuss one off-topic issue, about what is the best cryptocurrency wallet?
Personally I used Trustee for my bitcoin and ETH transactions, but I want to use more variants for crypto currency. Maybe someone knows is there such wallet that has more that these two coins?
