Turbo model? Is Honda going to turbocharge it's Euro Accord to compete with the Mazda6 Turbo?
My previous car was Honda Accord EXI 1994, base model without any luxury features like electric seat, rain sensor etc. Nearly 2 months ago I made a sudden decision and bought a Euro luxury. Since then I have been having the same feeling. It's worth paying for every single cent. Most of the time, I thought that this car was built by reading my mind and specifically designed for me. In terms of power, I don't you need more in Australian road conditions. In terms of luxury you have got everything you might want to have. Night illumination is remarkable. Sound system sounds like 2-3K systems. At the end of the day it's an accord. No word to say!!!
I haven't noticed the glove box light, but will check! No-one sits in the back of mine!
After writing my report I can't add anything to the car performance, still love it. Still like the look of it on the road and when I see others.
However, I have only had one bad thing happen! The dealer who services it dented it and didn't tell me, I found it and was furious!!! They fixed it free of charge, but it was a pain.
On the turbo front. When I went to Canada they have the Japanese version called an Acura... look at their site and see what we don't get. Believe me I wish we did!!
Happy Honda -ing :-)
Just bought Honda Accord Euro Luxury. Fantastic car indeed, very high class vehicle. I was also looking at the Mazda6 and Subaru and can I tell anyone out there who is thinking of buying one- think twice. The Accord Euro is a much higher classed vehicle and ultimately a better car in every way, shape and form. If you're worried about the expense I can tell you this much; go the extra couple of thousand, you will never look back. A car is an investment- make it last. Before you even look at either of these cars- test drive the Honda Accord Euro- you will be sorry if you don't.
The Honda Accord Luxury is fantastic! Mine runs on 17 inch wheel, & tell you something, it is worth every cent indeed. The suspension makes me feel like I am exactly in my Mercedes Benz. "2.4 DOHC DOUBLE EXHAUST? Guys get a good driver & feel the machine..."
I have also just brought a second hand Accord Euro Luxury 2005 2.4 VTEC with 100k on the clock. There are no squeaks or rattles; it sounds and drives like a brand new car. For Australian roads, the 2.4 VTEC power is terrific, this car gets up and flies, with the added bonus of the comfort of a luxury vehicle. It's silent inside, and the European ride is firm and sure footed. They cost a lot more second hand than other cars of the same age, but, and here's the difference, the quality of build is second to none.
