I just picked up my 2019 Touring from the dealer last week. I think I got an excellent deal with $6000 off MSRP. Let me know what you think. I like the car a lot but have a few concerns. First is the low ground clearance, the 19" wheels and tires are so easy to damage and seem to ride a bit rough, oh, and the 850lb weight limit, which I easily overshoot with four people in the car and some luggage. I love the infotainment and driver safety systems. Otherwise, it seems like an excellent car for the money. Let me know if you have similar concerns and solutions.

The car is a 4x4, there is nothing wrong with the 19inch wheels if you drive with common sense.

Welcome to the forum glad to have you join us.

The car is low, the 19" wheels are easy to damage, the ride is a little stiffer (due to the large wheels & low profile tires) if you're not used to this setup, IMO the weight limit is understated for liability reasons... With all that said hopefully you'll get used to the majority of these and enjoy the car... once you get used to driving the car, distance to curbs as you drive, then wheel damage can be avoided along w/getting used to distance to concrete parking stops (as I call them) when you pull into parking lot spaces to avoid scraping the front spoiler. The stiffer ride will be enjoyed when you push the car thru the twisties. As I stated above I would wager that the maximum weight limit is set to a very conservative number... however I wouldn't double it, but wouldn't be concerned w/going a few hundred pounds over at times.

To the OP ... You've hit upon two of my top three complaints about the 10th Gen Accord Touring:
  1. 19" Wheels;
  2. Low Clearance; and
  3. It's still ugly to me!

Other than that, I love the technology, amenities, comfort, and safety features.

BTW, Congrats on your purchase. You got a great deal!

Congratulations on your purchase. It is a great value for my money. 19” inch wheels are very easy to damage-ask me how I know!

My wife has managed to scuff all 4 wheels. Ugg. I like the looks of the wheels but may buy a set of lighter 17" wheels and tires when these tires wear down.
