Well folks nothing to see here.

No Earth Dreams engines = dead on arrival.

2.0L model gives up WAY too much mpg compared to the civic. And guaranteed even the next accord beats it handily. Plus it's still a 5-speed auto, fail.

2.4L still the same engine as the civic SI, rated one less mpg city. Naturally aspirated 4 cylinder that gets 29 mpg in 2012? Laughable. Hell, the 3.5L V-6 on the MUCH heavier RDX gets 28.

Good game Acura, thanks for playing I will look elsewhere.
