      Rev hang ? Did someone say rev hang ? Folks, you haven't experienced what proper rev hang feels like until you have driven current gen WRX. You will not be disappointed. I promise.

      It isn't specific to drive-by-wire cars... it's just easier with drive-by-wire cars. Many mechanical throttle cars have idle air control systems which either actuate the throttle plate directly, or bypass air around the throttle. These could be used on mechanical throttle cars to implement the same rev hang.
      I had no rev hang issues with my cable actuated throttle on my 2000 MK4 Jetta 2.slow. Also, those who have the 2005 gen Corolla XRS with cable actuated throttle do not have that issue as well. Not doubting what you said but some Euro versions of the same manuals we get here in the US also don’t have this rev hang despite being drive by wire. Rev hang was implemented in US spec manuals to reduce fuel runoff when suddenly lifting the throttle. It was easier to implement in DBW throttles.

      Just posting to say that I love the Accord, especially the last few generations.

      MIL has previous gen 2.4L with CVT, still love the Honda goodness - powerful, fuel efficient engine, more chassis balance & handling than you'd expect in a mid-size family sedan.

      If I really was going to get one I would seriously look at retrofitting LSD from Si/CTR. And a Hondata or Burger tune.

      It wasn’t exactly cut and paste. I did mention cars that didn’t have it.

      So I went ahead and went for it. Got a great offer and deal for it and after driving it a second time for longer I loved how it drove, the room and it just felt like a fun and complete car for me. Picking it up tuesday. 2019 Sport, 6MT

      Congrats - I'm trying to talk my wife into one of these, one of the best values around IMO.

      Welcome to the club! I've had mine 5 months and I still love it like the first day I brought it home. You can have a party in the back seat, and it crushes freeway on-ramps.

      The head unit is great, but it sounds pretty crap. Only legitimate flaw I can think of. I rectified that pretty quickly and easily.

It's not smooth, and I find myself fighting for a gear - usually at the point when I need the acceleration the most. Super frustrating.

      Congrats OP I love mine!

      I have been driving manuals for 30 years and this one is fine, contrary to the YouTube review mentioned earlier in this thread. Could the throws be shorter and tighter? No doubt and can be improved if desired: www.acuityinstruments.com

      As far as the size goes, the interior is huge, second row leg room is impressive. The exterior is shorter in both length and height, along with being wider and lighter than the previous generation Accord.

      Enjoy the ride!

      Yeah. There's one for Mopars as well. I'm going to buy one and have it installed during my next oil change.
