    This was a blast of a time. I can assure you all my Accord was never in Eco mode 😉. Sam is really knowledgeable and super unbiased when it comes to these videos so it was amazing to be a part of this one - I can't wait to see this channel continue to be awesome and grow into something more special in the years to come. Thanks Sam!

      @George G. according to truecar (I'm not saying it's a fully reliable source) there's only 5 K5 GTs for sale nationwide in the U.S., you gotta be pretty lucky to get one (at least from my maybe non reliable sources) the k5 GT is a really nice car, if I could see one in person then I would be really surprised lol. in where I live, even seeing a normal k5 is rare

      I have a 2020 2.0t touring with a jb4 engine tune including a K&N intake. Then added front strut tower brace, and stiffer engine mounts up front for better launches. Better then stock rubber with one size bigger and it’s very quick once you get the front to hook up. Such a great sleeper and doesn’t break the bank. Now give me an accord with the Acura SHAWD and now were talking Honda!!!! Great reviews.

    I've had the accord touring 2.0T for a month now. Chose it over the TLX A-Spec of the same year (TLX would have had more mileage). Glad I picked the Accord. I get wheel spin even in 3-4th gear..the torque is ridiculously exiting!

    It hurts my head how bad he is at driving the Acura... he didn't manually shift till fourth gear and the roll race he was out of the power band and stepped on it while in auto and manually shifted after the roll started...wtf. Also a better comparison for price and weight etc is the TLX tech package that's FWD

You need to understand that only officers of the law and law enforcement is able to look up your information by your license plate.

    I think by now anyone that knows about cars, would know 90% of awd cars from the line were meant to be “quick” but not “fast” in the long run. It’s more efficient sending power to 2 wheels instead of all 4. Only thing they both do good is handling in tight corners unlike the more skill you would need when driving a rwd car.
