Might be joining the 8th gen crew soon!

Hey everyone,

I may be picking up an 08 Red EX-L Coupe very soon.

What does everyone love or hate about their 8th gen?

I love the power with the j35 + 6speed. My only dislike is no backup camera and there is an infamous deck lid trunk rattle

My girl just picked up a 13 ex-l turn signal camera and backup camera is NUTS.

Im looking at an 08 San Marino EX-L V6 with 95,xxx miles with extended warranty for $10,400

I figure this, my 99 accord has 151,xxx miles and I owned it since 2003 with 85,xxx miles. I dont drive much at all.

I just want a new car and Ill still be able to sell my car after I drive it for 3 or 4 years since I dont drive much at all.

Sounds like a pretty good price, i just paid $12k for an 2009 V6 exl no nav with 75k miles, but not as good as your deal. I already put over $1k into it in maintenance, pdr and rim repair which puts me at $13K before mods

Couple of things that i was surprised with was the size, this car is huge compared to my 7 th and 5th gen, rear deck does rattle with the bass speaker and creaks over bumps, vcm takes a bit to get use to with the transition from 6 to 3 cylinder , pcm update helped a lot to smooth that out, and lastly its pretty fast since my other Hondas were 4 cylinder

My friends.

Is $10000 too much for an 08 with 95,xxx miles?
