    I drove a Nissan Maxima V6/CVT a few years ago. Smooth, quick very nice overall. Four months ago, I bought a 2013 Accord EX-L V6/Auto. I think its the best V6 engine on the market, and the trans shifts are quick and seemless. I am averaging the EPA combined 25 mpg in mixed driving. On one 500+ mile roadtrip taken so far, the car got an honest 32 mpg with the cruise set at a steady 75 mph... pretty respectable for a car that can do 0-60 mph in 6 seconds flat. Quietest Honda yet, interior space, visibility, handling and braking all excellent. Ride is very good at higher speeds...but too stiff over badly broken pavement at lower speeds... my only significant complaint. All in all a very well balanced car that packs a lot of value.
