How did it do over the speed breakers ? Does one has to be extra cautious on speed breakers like NHC and Civic ?

Congrats!
Pictures please.
You did 140km/hr on a new car?
11.8kmpl on that quick calculation could be almost real since its a manual version.
Automatics can expect a little lesser.
Enjoy a safe and happy drive

Rest of Asia gets a 2.0 ltr (156 ps) variant of R20A also.

the ground clearance is abundant...practically rushed through the speed breakers without much hassle.


the back seat sort of wraps itself around you ...royal treatment!

and couldnt wait to empty my tank...the mileage turned out be 13.1 kmpl!!!!!!

and it finally cost me 20 lac but that is cause i had an insurance bonus...will let you know how much it costs otherwise...and they also did gave me a box of chocolates...(tasted old and almost as if it had been sun dried!)


the dual a/c wasnt just as effective as it promises to be...but there is a specific control for the driver's seat...smart and effective

Note from the Team-BHP Support : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

@inmate: Congrats for your new car. BTW, Isnt there a mandatory running-in period for Accord? I am asking this because you seem to have done well beyond 130kmph on a brand new car.

Congrats Inmate on your new car!!!
Your car pictures are due.

However I doubt real FE would be 13kmpl. Initially, there is too much margin of error, it takes couple of tank fulls to know how much FE you really are getting.

With my experience on Civic, whatever you get initially should improve by 8-10% over next 10k km.

Cheers, Drive safe!

Hey inmate!!

Congrats on your new New Accord. I saw a black New Accord in front off cotton complex on saturday night, tried to catch up in my sisters santro but the way the Accord zoomed was amazing, by the time I went from hot tracks to cotton's main gate that person had already crossed the Joseph's. Enjoy your new drive and also be careful while driving in the city.

Reg,
Vinay.S
