I think this one may be an I-CDTi? out of the recent Accords this is the best shape imo.

Nice cars- we have an exec Tourer

Clutches are rubbish- not up to diesel torque (especially when mapped!)

Manifold cracked & ABS modulator failed. Both common faults. Fortunately covered by warranty.....

Great accord. I have a face lift i-cdti and its a great car, best car i have owned.
It has so many toys for the money.

With all the common faults i have yet to experience any of them and i have owned the car for nearly a year now and have driven over 25k miles in it :)
Lovely to drive and nicely refined too. road noise could be lower though but it could be blamed on the tyres. I have uniroyals rainsport 2 and those aren't the quietest tyres

Always use v power diesel - these engines love it
Clutches are poo but are ok if they are not stressed out.

I was going to buy a 2006 lexus 220d but i am glad i stuck to a Honda - excellent value for money
