I have 1 less pedal but 4 more speeds than you and you can't catch me! ;-) Just kidding and welcome to the forum! I myself am thinking of getting a manual for running around town, either the 1.5 or the Civic hatch which is more utilitarian.

Yeah when my 2010 Honda Pilot was stolen I knew I wanted the 2.0T manual to replace it (we are an all Honda family) but ended up having to wait 3 months before my local dealer could get one from the factory. While Honda of Frontenac was prepping it 3 people tried to buy it. Gonna do a few cosmetics while under warranty but plan to add a few HP and torque later.

Just picked it up yesterday after waiting 3 months for delivery. Apparently 3 people tried to buy it while it was being prepped.
Nice. Your going to love it. I also had a wait for my manual too. They had a hard time finding one, but they did. Had to go out of state to pick it up. It may be a family car, but it’s no punk. Lol. Fun to drive.

Sweet! I have had my 2.0L manual for about a year now. Placed an advance order with my dealer before they started shipping them out from the factory. It has been a great car so far and a blast to drive. I don't know about you guys but I worry this might be the last manual transmission car but I'll be able to buy new. Manufacturers keep dropping the manual option from their lineups.

2018 Honda Accord manual shift knob swap...

First off this is not easy. If you're not comfortable taking the ENTIRE middle console apart you can't swap the shifter knob. The problem is that Honda put plastic clips at the bottom of the leather shifter knob that then snap into the plastic chrome ring at the top of the leather shifter boot. so if you attempt to twist the knob and unthread it you will twist the leather boot as well. You HAVE to get the whole middle panel out to push the 2 tabs together on the knob to remove it from the boot ring. Slightly infuriating really.

First take off the 2 plastic side panels on the side of the middle console. They're just clipped in place. Use a plastic trim removal tool to avoid marring the plastic. Next take out the screws on the side chrome trip. Pull the entire middle console up and take the 3 screws out that hold the Econ and Brake buttons in place. You can then turn the whole console around to twist the shift knob off. Push in those 2 plastic tabs and remove the knob from the boot. :plain:

Now just put it all back together. I used a nut on the shifter shaft for the new knob to press against.
