You won't regret getting the diesel. It's a great car. I usually have a short attention span with cars, but this one has captivated me and is my favorite car out of the 80 or so cars I have owned in my life.I have a 07 accord v6 that doesn't get very good mpg that I plan on trading in and I know I won't get the amount that I owe on it. But that happens I guess. My work situation won't be changing anytime soon and if it does it's only be further of a drive. I was leaning towards the Eco mt, but if I can get the diesel for a good price id rather do that. I forgot to mention I get a gm supplier discount as well.
