I have a generation 8 I4 and LOVE it!!
My Accord story:
My brother and his wife both have 07 I4's. His a coupe (black EX-L) and hers a sedan (gold EX-L). He wanted me to drive him to the store to buy some beer,only in your car I said haha,so I drove it to the store. First thing I asked him was if it was the V6 model,that car would haul [censored] and was rock solid!! Nope,4 cyl he said. I popped the hood,yep,K24 engine. So I decided I wanted one and spent a few months shopping. I drove a few 2012's and fell in love with them. I noticed the I4's have a higher resale value,and dealers wouldn't budge on the prices,and they'd sell within a day or so. I finally found the one in my sig. Spotless inside and out,one owner,perfect Carfax. It even had the dealership window sticker inside the glove box. Of course I changed EVERY fluid like I always do the day I brought her home (oil,transmission,radiator,power steering,and brakes). Engine is soooo smooth and silent!! Drives rock solid without a single rattle or noise. Gf and I were coming back from a road trip the other weekend and I happened to look down and I was breaking well over 100mph haha and didn't even realize it. These cars are very refined and engineered very well.
My advice,get the I4 model.
