We traded the 09 tsx and the 05 is300. The is needed something in the rear brakes to keep it from squealing, the hvac was making an unnecessary noise, the headlights were shifty, and the engine was leaking oil into the plugs. The tsx needed front brakes, rear pads, upper control arm and a new alignment. So they both got traded in on a 2017 accord sport SE. The apr was great and it rides like a dream.So now we are down to two cars; a 2010 4runner and this.
It has the 19" wheels and leather, that is about it.

Congratulations, I had a 2016 for almost a year and it was a great car to me in the short period that I had it. Get the sport grille, it will totally transform the front end of the car.

Also, make sure you do everything in your power to protect your wheels. There seems to be endless stories of them getting stolen.

Best looking car Honda has made in a long time. Nice pickup. Sad to see the TSX gone though. Another OG TSX gone. I know you will stick around though.

Congrats man, love the Accord Sport!

Looks like you picked a good time to get it before the 2018's arrive. I'm not sure how I feel about their latest redesign - there seems to be a lot of hate on it...especially with the current gen being so popular.

Looks great
Only thing I would change is for a 6MT. How's the CVT?

I was thinking about one, but i really get tired of shifting in city traffic. The cvt really isn't too bad.

I will say that i love driving this thing. The base radio is just loud enough for my damaged hearing. Using the i-pod is easy to use. Even having 19" wheels, the ride is not rough. I drive highway and back roads and the cvt trans. really works well for my drive. At 70 mph, i get over 35 mpg. This thing is really quiet too.

The 17 Accord is one of my favorite Accords of all times. I swear that the coupe, 2008 to present (don't know which Gen that is), should have been an Acura. Congrats! The Sport sedan looks sweet as well!

Congrats and welcome to the 9.5 gen Accord. I love my 16 Sport... WOP is an excellent color. Yes, as stated above the sport wheels are getting stolen everyday more so in the Jersey area. Everyone complains about the CVT, but I've never had an issue in my 9th gen or 9.5 gen. Enjoy.

If you are looking at the front and the sides, you are correct. The rear takes some getting used to. I like the look of the civic better.

My wife and I were driving back from Saratoga Springs Sunday afternoon when we came upon a black Accord Sport sedan. She said "that really is a good looking car isn't it?" "Yes it is." Nice pick up dallison!

After 400 miles i have noticed the wind/road noise is minimal. I am still getting used to how fast i can corner on 19's. The leather seats are more comfortable than the cloth. The cvt scoots you around pretty quick. I still have a few hundred miles for the break in so i haven't tried much out. The headlights are pretty bright at night.

I also bought a 17 Sport (not the SE, I prefer cloth). Love the car and everything about it... even the CVT.

Initially, id recommend:
- tint
- all weather mats (front/rear)
- LED's in place of the halogens

I have the black all weather mats. I got em for $93 shipped. The dealer said their cost was $114. I don't think i can get away with any tint here in PA.

I'll post a pic when I get my car back.....

I'm thinking he may have 5.

I have 15 in the rear, 35 in the front and mine don't look that dark.
