Well done artical.

As a owner of a 06 Civic EX Sedan, 5MT w/Navi and a 05 Accord EX Sedan I4, 5AT n/Navi. I can understand alot of his comments.

Owning each of the best Sedans made, IMO is great!!! The new Civic is very Accordian like in many ways. Its so Accordian like we are taking the Civic over the Accord on a road trip from Tulsa to Phoenix this coming weekend.

I wouldnt buy a Civic with a AT in it. As I know first hand how bad the 5AT guts the Accord. Ive driven a Civic with a AT and it really needed a auto pilot. It did not hold my intrest at all.

We have no squeaks or rattles in either car. No excessive wind noise either. Road noise is the same in both cars. Road noise is something Honda is going to have to work on big time. Hondas arent little tin cans anymore and they shouldnt sound like one when driving them down the hwy.

As good as the sun roof switch is in the EX Civics the rest of the controls dont have the better feel of the Accord. The tactil feel of the Accord controls are wonderful.

The dash in the Civic is intresting to say the least. And Navi makes it complete. The Civics dash disapears from my view when driving. The Accords dash is a work of art IMO. And always seems to have a presence.

If the 06 Civic had been out when we bought the 05 Accord in June of 05 I dont know what we would have done. When the 06 Civic did come out, it was a no brainer. Get that 5MT Sedan with Navi.

You cant go wrong with either car. There both that good!!!
