Default Just ordered a 17 Accord Sport for my Mom

My mom's car got totaled, and she was looking into a new Camry. I talked her into an Accord Sport. The dealer didn't have any white 17 Accord Sport in stock, so we ordered one. Total price out the door was $26.5k. Pretty happy with it! The salesman said it will take around 2 months until it's delivered. Is this an accurate timetable? I can't see why it will take 2 months to build a car, but I'm not gonna question it. My mom is totally geeked out, and she was happy I talked her into an Accord over a Camry.

Anyone ordered a car from Honda and can confirm it took close to 2 months to get it delivered?

2017 Accord Sport with 6MT. There are no specific options for this model. A Sport is a Sport, lol. I didn't even have to talk her into a manual, she wanted it because she's always enjoyed driving them.

Hopefully by July 1. Am I wrong to be surprised it takes 2 months to build an Accord?

Online specs say 2.4L 189hp 184tq. Definitely not a race car, but my mom isn't a stoplight warrior. Car looks slick as hell and it will last her probably until she can't drive anymore(she's 60)

It's a direct injection K24 that Honda purposefully underrated as to not **** off Civic Si and TSX owners. It's rated at 189hp but they put down nearly 180whp on 87 octane while murdering the standard K24 (which requires 91 octane) pretty much everywhere along the power curve. With a good set of tires they run 14's bone stock in the 1/4mi.

Accord Sport vs TSX dyno. Accord K24 is in red.

These cars are pretty rare for some reason. There is not a single 2017 6MT Accord Sport manual for sale in any Honda dealer in my state.

I figured as much. How can something be a "sport" with an automatic, ha.

Gotcha, I thought you got her the v6. so I assumed it had the j series. Even the K series is outdated yes/no?

Yeah, introduced to the Accord in 03?
Though maybe the direct injected version is different enough to be more than a refresh.
The J series is crusty though.

The J series in the current Accord allows it to run 13s stock while getting 22/32 mpg. Saying the J series is **** because it's been around for awhile is ridiculous.

Two months seems about right. I worked at a fork lift dealer owned by Toyota Motor Co. years ago and that was the timetable for employees when they wanted a car directly from the factory with dat diskount y0!

$25k including financing? That doesn't seem like much at all for a brand new accord, but I may be out of touch with car prices.

I edited my post, I dunno how that happened. She paid 26.5k, not 25k. That was out the door. Like Randy Moss said, "straight cash, homie!"

Congratulations, I would get some McGard wheel locks for if they aren't included. AFAIK the aports have 18's and fairly desirable.

It's a popular model. :-) They just have to find the one you wanted, that's all. It might be delivered sooner if it's nearby at another dealer.

The graph says EX.

The Sport will have a slightly different curve. :-) It's even got a couple more HP.

From what the salesman said, Honda will be building it. For some reason the 6MT seems to be extremely rare. If it were my car, I would have liked for it to have the v6 instead of the i4 it comes with.

The Sport is a K Motor.

The J Motor is sort of ancient, but the bottom end has been strengthened for modern applications, and the injection system, manifold and valve trains have been changed to suit modern applications.

The J35 in my KC2 has manifold injection at some speeds, and direct injection at other speeds, and works perfectly well in the Sport Hybrid Legend with 430 total HP.
