An Accord with more power and torque than the B6? Must have been in Euro-trim, because there is no way for that to happen in the USA...if we're comparing 4's to 4's and 6's to 6's.

You guys do realize that an Accord in Europe is an ACURA TSX, right?

More torque in the Honda? No way, not from the high-revving vtec.
Must have been a diesel.

How about an interpretation of an impersonation:

BRIT: Honda has more torque, more power, more economy, more bells & whistles, and is cheaper!

LANCE: UK Passat hater!

Ein richtiges Deutsches Auto gegen ein Honda?

Meine Gute...Wenn Mann ein Honda kauft statt ein VW, hat er nichts zu klagen wenn es kaput geht.

I've had one Honda product, a Motorcycle..it was fine. Honda is a good engineering company and produces fine products with many virtues.

It's impossible to buy a "German" Car from Honda...I'll keep buying VWs & BMWs and enjoy the virtues that are only avaialble in a German Engineered product.

Hondas are indeed reliable, but I scratched Honda off my potential shopping list when they discontinued the Accord wagon/estate. I am pleased to see VW still offering a Passat wagon/variant, although I wish they hadn't discontinued the Jetta wagon.

you're quite right sir.it was the diesel version.i seem to have upset a lot of people,not intentionally.i've owned nothing but german cars since the eighties.mercs,audis,and an endless stream of vee dubs.i am only stating what i hate to admit,and that is, in my opinion hondas' new diesel is better.it is well documented that build quality on german cars, especially mercs, is going down.the passat felt cheap,the honda felt expensive! slag me off if you want,but you are talking to a vw fanatic after all.
