    We should see sales increase as the summer months wear on in 2009, in sympathy of the inevitable higher gas prices.
    The 2009 Honda Accord is definitely the better car from the Gen X perspective because of its solid stereo system and sporty look. http://www.epinions.com/review/2009_Honda_Accord_Sedan_epi/content_458336669316

    Excuse me, but the following statement is absolutely wrong!!! "However it's clear that interest in the model is on the rise, which could put the Accord on track to regain its position at the top of the midsize heap -- a position it occupied for much of the last decade." The Camry has been the best selling car in the usa 11 out of the last 12 years. The one year that they didn't win was because they could not make enough of them during a model change year. Get your facts straight!!! I liken it to a dynasty, wouldn't it be great if the Phillies were World Series Champs 11 out of 12 years?

    @Fred: Last decade = 90s.

    It is like CRV vs Rav4. Both Accord and Camry are great mid size cars. It is very difficult to judge which one is better.

    Reuben, I don't think it's from a Gen X perspective more late boomers perspective, the ones who grewed with the 1986-89 gen with the hidden headlights like the Prelude had (and the last gen to have the 3-door hatchback, it was more sporty then the current one) in the line-up. Here in Quebec, Canada. I saw more and more grand'pas and grand'mas buying the Accord. Younger folks switched to the Nissan Altima, Mazda 6, Hyundai Sonata and even the Ford Fusion here.

    Honda Accord prices are coming down that is the reason for the uptick. See, http://tinyurl.com/mpr8w7
