Hi all,

Was originally on the market for a Civic hatchback, but since I couldn't find one in Aegean Blue, I testdrove the Accord and walked out with a 2018 CVT 1.5T Sport in Still Night Blue.

I'm a Newbie to Accords, FWD and CVTs, so I'm sure I'll have a bunch of newbie questions. I thank the community in advance for your patience/advice and look forward to contributing as much as I can.

I've had her for about a month and the first order of business is to get the windows tinted. The California sun is no joke on that black interior.

After that I believe I'll be attempting to install a handle in the trunk, I think I read that last year's handle fits the 10th gen accords.

On the fence on what other mods I want to do, since it's mainly a commuter, but I always seem to get the mod bug...can't help it.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new ride! Just out of curiosity how do you find acceleration in the CVT? I know they have really improved in recent years with new launch gears and such.

it’s adequate for my needs but you really have to drive it to know. Having a sport button definitely helps.

It's my first CVT so I have nothing to compare it to. It's adequate and yes, the sport button makes it a little more interesting. I knew buying the car that I wasn't buying a rocket, but I was pleasantly surprised during the testdrive.

My commute is mostly highway driving and I have not had any issues passing vehicles or getting to highway speed.
