I've been following these all along...

It's clear that some of the reviewers can't get over what they perceive is terrible styling to actually say anything meaningful about the vehicle.

And there has been more than one occasion that a reviewer has complained about something that isn't actually the case... and a commenter has to point out that the car in fact *does* have a certain feature.

Case in point: The "short" usb lead.

The reason it's not just a port in the console, is so you can attach a USB Memory Stick, and not worry about it being snapped or broken off if you put something large in the console. (The short lead allows it to move)

Then the reviewer complains about how terrible it is because it was so hard to connect to while they were driving down the road.

I guess I was wrong when I thought the obvious safe thing to do was you connect my iPod cable before I start hurtling a 2 Ton vehicle down the road.

(it would be like complaining how cumbersome it is to check the oil while going down the highway, and then knocking Honda designers for the fault)

So many features are also in the sedan and coupe and I guess because they like the styling of it, it doesn't bother them? I guess? Me personally, I have yet to go why did Honda put this here? They complain about the center stack but I don't see what's so overwhelming about it. The buttons are just big and that's to our benefit lol. In the suspension breakdown they did say the CTs suspension is way better than the other Accord models and went into a very detailed breakdown of whats under there. I do wanna drop the car about an inch or 1.5 in but without sacrificing what makes the suspension better. Idk I still need to do some hw on that...

OK, I know I can be slow at times but that sounded more like a bunch whiners. The only one I thought had a ligament complaint was the dashboard falling apart. I guess I have an issue with people that find fault in every little thing or try to blame on something that does not deserve blame.

This is just ridiculous. At least the commenters at the bottom of the page are calling out the poster for being an idiot.
WOW whoever wrote this must have done some things they're not proud of to become senior editor... they're saying in other cars they are able to look down at their phone and then enter the pin to pair the phone while driving... How dare Honda care about safety... That's like me saying these rims are cool but how dare they put tires on them smh...
