quote:Spinning a smooth engine in the 7000 to 9000 rpm range actually becomes extremely enjoyable once you get used to it. I've come to appreciate it more than a torque monster that gets rough as the revs climb. Of course, if you can have both: even better! A buddy of mine was telling me that he was driving an RSX Type-S and it was slow. I told him that I thought it would go pretty good in the 6000 to 8000 rpm range. He said he was shifting at 6000 rpm.

I think technically the accord has double wishbone front AND rear. Combined with the engine in the EX coupe...and that 6spd MTX...pretty sweet car. Just wish it was a few hundred pounds lighter .
Isn't it merely the Civic platform which switched over to struts? Doesn't the Accord still have double wishbones?
