I finally got new wheels

Some of you might remember me as the guy who had a Mazda6s V6 who wanted to come back to a Focus for $$ reasons. I posted a thread about it.

Now I have gone the other extreme and went for it. I traded in my Mazda for a new 06 Accord V6 EX Mtx. After driving it for a bit ( tonight is the first night I got it) it is without a doubt the superior car than my Mazda6. Ok, the only advantage my Mazda has over the Accord V6 ex mtx is steering and road feel and price. And maybe a nastier V6 growl.

Other than that, the most important parts Honda makes a far superior engine and tranny. Its revs like a dream and shifts like one too. No wonder in the Feb 06 issue of Car and driver the Accord finished 2nd in a comparison of family/sport sedans. It really is a delight to rev that motor out.

I had problems making my payments to Mazda on a car I didnt want anymore. I took my loss and moved on. Yeah money wise I took a bath but hey its better to pay on something you feel is worth the money. I'll try to post a pic tommorrow.

Congrats on your new ride. You're very right, it is tough paying for something you don't like anymore. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses as you did. I'm sure you'll be very happy with the Accord.

they butchered the look of the 06 accord... i like the round back on the 03-05.

but yea accords are probably the best buy for the buck.

4 door, I like a roomy and sporty car. Coupe is just too claustrophoic in a way.

I was about to get a Altima SER for its beast of a motor but the Nissan dealer wouldnt take my offer 1500 down/350 a month 3 year lease. So I literally just drive across the street, tested it out and about 2 hours later new wheels.

Yeah, Yeah, its butt ugly but what a sweet motor and 6 speed.

I tried to post a pic but it says my pics are too big.
