We traded in the 2008 Honda Fit and bought a silver Accord. The computer screen on the dash looked like potential problems down the road so we bought the 5-year platinum warranty. In the absence of the new computer technology, I would have skipped the extended warranty but that computer screen in an unknown quantity.
The Accord to me looks like a BMW. Its ride is quiet, smooth. Its acceleration with the 4-cylinder is confident and assuring. We drove the CRV. I hated it. Bouncy. Slow. Turgid. The Accord is a better car and cheaper.
I almost wish the Accord didn't come with that computer screen. It adds a complexity to car that is otherwise wonderfully simple.
Final notes: We drove a black Accord and loved it but got scared about keeping it clean and went with the silver.
