2014 HONDA ACCORD
Fantastic Fuel Economy (38 to 40 m.p.g.)! We do a lot of driving so fuel economy was very important. We drive a lot of 2 lane county roads and the Honda handles like a dream. Very comfortable! The new variable transmission is so smooth, you never hear/feel a shift. We love our Honda!
