pretty sure he knew I was picking on him which is why he got butt hurt.

Avalon is my company car. Didn't expect to like it as much as I do. 6.0second 0-60 and 14.2 second 1/4 mile while getting 32mpg hwy makes it bearable and fun. My 2011 has 94,000 miles. I trade out in 4 months and looking to get the 2014 edition although the Impala is pulling me.

As for the GTR......no question.

Yeah, till you had to go someplace that was 300 miles away and that was the only car to get you there..

Unusual reaction from the Accord owner. I bet 80% of Accord owners don't care about the styling similarities between their car and a Hyundai Genesis. Most Honda Accord owners only care about getting from point A to point B.

Not all that 'the same'. similar styling cues, that's about it
