I called up "Whitefield Honda" - Blore the other day and asked them if they had the V6 for a test drive.

The guy said they did have one but it was only for display. Now i'm more interested in how a car goes rather than how it looks. And considering the exteriors of botht the Accords are pretty much the same, i dropped the idea of checking it out until they provided me with a test drive.

So if any off you have test driven the V6, do let us know about you experience. You can even tell us about it, even if you've just seen it.

Regards...

Whitefield still have one available - a purple one. Normal order time is one month. CRV's come in on order only. They are stocked in Singapore and pulled in as per order.

I know my mum and I both wanted the bronze color that comes with it, but that color had a 2-3 month waiting..so had to settle for silver..which is also not bad I guess..

oh btw I am talking about CRV

also saw a smashed up new Accord - needs new wings, bumpers, front end, rear axle (skidded and hit a pavement). amazingly the engine compartment structure and engine is intact. Extimated cost - Rs 7.5 lakhs to repair - car has been awaiting repair for two months - god knows why - beware if you find a black accord going cheap in Bangalore over the next few months - no. plates were removed

Must have been a 'test drive' by the owner or his friends..

I seriously feel, even by seeing the specification data that the Accord needs rear wings(are they called spoilers?) and may be glue for the tires if in the hands of a lunatic..
