This will be a 2 part video. This is an owners perspective of my thoughts of the 2018 Honda Accord 2.0t Touring. I also talk about why I switched from a Tesla to a Honda Accord.

  1. Great review bro, looking forward to getting mine next year by God's grace same trim in White… those lobster claws..lol

  2. Of course you would like it it's the again knockoff of the Audi a5 they didn't even try to hide it it's the exact same design minus Audi technology.

  3. Just a quick note, your TL didnt have a dual clutch. It's on the 2015 onward 4cyl TLX. Good to have you on team Honda.

  4. really comes down to the accord you get a lot for the money!! That car is under 40K the tesla over 60K How many people that buy those teslas can actually afford them

  5. Seriously Iโ€™ve looked at Porsche, Infiniti, Jaguar, and Tesla I honestly personally like the 2019 Honda Accord sport. Not the 2.0 touring the regular sport trim in one of the blues and I like it better than any of those other brands I mentioned in the accords class. And Iโ€™m super picky when it comes to interior and body style and color even Mercedes my sister has one and I prefer the accord for what I would be paying versus any of those luxury brands the new accord just had a style that doesnโ€™t compare. Gotta give it to Honda

  6. Hi Dan, Thanks for video! Did Tesla provide you with a loaner while your S was being fixed? It seems they give out loaners frequently, especially with long waits for repairs. I am considering Accord 2.0 or Model 3. Your video makes the decision more difficult. I was leaning toward the 3, now less sure.

  7. As much as I love the idea of Tesla, especially the fact that its an electric car, they need to make some improvements towards affordability before I'd consider one. The Model 3 may be "only $35,000", but that's before adding several features that are basically mandatory. For now, I'm a Honda Accord/Acura TLX guy.

  8. This car is so awesome (2.0L Sport) I'm ignoring the dash rattle. Seems on cold days, lower revs, almost buzzing. Not all the time.

  9. That is the EXACT Accord I plan to buy. Even the color. That Modern Steel is my favorite color on the Accord. They are beautiful cars, and a whole lot of "bang for the buck".

  10. I have the 2018 Accord Sport 2.0T 10AT, after a year and a half of ownership, I'm still enjoying driving this car. I drive in some traffic in Atlanta, the LKAS will engage at 25mph as will the adaptive cruise control, so I'm not sure what you are thinking when you say it doesn't work until 46mph. The power is very good, the 10AT is a dream of an automatic transmission, smooth, solid, responsive are just a few of the superlatives I can say about this transmission and when mated to the 2.0T, they are a great combo. BTW, I really like the auto-high beams along with the LED headlights. When it comes to the exterior lighting, the only thing that makes me wonder is why Honda didn't include LED rear turn indicators. I've also looked seriously into the Hondata or K-tuner flash upgrade options, but honestly, the stock power and torque are already very good. Not to mention you can eek out another 8-10hp just by filling up with premium fuel. Also, look for the Hondata dyno test, it shows a stock 2018 Accord putting out 265hp and 292 lb-ft of torque at the wheels! It's a great all around car, particularly for the $27k that I paid for mine brand new including several dealer installed accessories and tinted windows.

  11. Best decision! I never liked the car with a lot of electronic stuff, that is easy to broken or failures. Accord will be my next car… Thanks for the review!

  12. That's one massive flaw that nobody cares when lying their ass off on stage, how actually inconvenient it is to fix the Tesla, they have no facilities or anything to help customers.

  13. I suggest ktuner. Same power gains but if you ever decide to upgrade to another accord, civic si/type R you can use the same device for those cars. The flash pro you would have to sell and then buy another one specific to that vehicle.

  14. I really hate sedans but I hope Honda makes an electric accord and civic (and civic sport!) to compete with telsa

  15. its an amazing car ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I enjoy it on the highway all the time ๐Ÿ˜€ don't even ask where is a driver? :D:D:D:D

  16. Teslaโ€™s are too expensive in the first place and then to repair them is outrageous. Itโ€™s better to wait till electric cars are more mainstream.

  17. When legacy automakers like Honda and Toyota get serious about EVs they will eat Tesla's lunch and probably end up buying Tesla assets and technologies for pennies on the dollar.

  18. GREETINGS FROM MEXICO …. i got this beast bout 5 months ago…….im so happy….its an amazing machine…. much better than any audi , mercedes or bmw of its class. i paid 26000 for it….. JUST LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Fairoaks Mall ! Woo! haha I live in this area as well and am thinking of getting the Accord as well. Currently looking at a 2018 1.5L Accord with 4.5K miles on it. It is a great looking car but like you said my only complain on looks is the back and the taillights lol. I think the 1.5L is solid due to the MPG, not really buying an Accord to break track records lol

  20. Detailed discussion, glad that you enjoy your new car. I own a 2018 EXL 2.0T (same color) and have been driving it for 19 months (15,000 miles) and you made a good choice. The car rides nice, handles great, and is fun to drive. Gas mileage is much better than I expected (overall MPG on a 1,270 mile trip was 35.0 – mainly expy). For an older gent like myself it's got plenty of power. Just to think about (my opinion)- the factory matching side molding breaks up the side sheet metal and adds a little more sportiness to it. Also, the optional trunk lid spoiler adds a nice touch. As for the wheels, they're low maintenance (unlike the black ones) and look great. (again my opinion). Good luck with your car and drive safe.

  21. Looks like an ugly whale to be honest. Looks just really bad. I think you are trying too hard to make yourself feel better about your purchase, enjoy your car regardless.

  22. Really nice owners review buddy. Well spoken. Love the car and color combination you chose. Considering one myself. How are you liking it after a few more months? How is your mpg? I have heard the ventilated seats are not very effective. Can you confirm or deny this? Do you use the HUD? Debating what trim level I would get….thanks again
