Kind of a sad story for me. I have owned several Honda's, mostly the garden variety Accord, with 5 or 6 speed manual transmissions. Always been a great combination - mildly sporting, fuel efficient, and post 2003 (US - design) 2.4L 4-cylinders went to a timing chain, making these very low maintenance vehicles overall. Cheap to buy, run & insure. Just enough power to have a little fun without worrying about red & blue lights very frequently. That is all done now: From Car and Driver October 2020 issue (New Model update) "Honda quietly stopped making Manual transmission Accords in December, 2019." Therefore "Boredom" prevails. CVT or push-button 10-speed auto only. Sedan only. Sure, you can still buy a Civic or a couple other models with the 6-speed, but the Accord was simply "right." Right size, right feel, and just big enough to pass as a family car if you needed that. It was the last mid-size sedan in the US to offer three pedals. Sure, I could go buy a Subaru WRX, a Porsche ($$$$), a Miata, or even a used Accord with three pedals, and likely I will at some point again. It is the principal. We are losing out as "driving enthusiasts" here. I do not need or want a daily driver sports car, not in these times and not in Iowa. However, options are getting scarce for a reliable, lower-cost, "fun" to drive car as a runabout. Anyone else feel this way - or am I a loaner in this area?
