This. Knew someone years ago that had one and while a nice car being automatic it was a bit poo and always something wrong with it. He always went with the story of American built as if that was a good thing.

It's a very nice looking car but if only they did manual...

They did but only in 2 litre version

You can get the Accord Coupe with the 2.0 4 cylinder and a manual. About 150hp IIRC.

 

I once bought one sight unseen on ebay in Manchester. Went to view it and the clutch was utterly fucked, so I refused it on the spot and got my money back from the chancer.

Honestly thought they were all automatics. The only ones (three) I've seen were.

Part of me would still like to find a half-decent Accord Coupe 2.0 manual. They have a very nice interior and the huge sunroof is nice.

However, I now have another 90s Coupe with a nice interior and a sunroof and a 2.0 making about 150hp (admittedly it's an automatic).

Sounds great.

Not being a Ford fan, I have no idea why, but I like that. I also like the Ka+.  Maybe it is because they have not thrown in too much pretentious electronic nonsense and have remembered that suspension is there to mask the state of the road from your fillings.

You can probably add hero levels of understeer to that list; it would be like driving a beetle backwards.
