Who really care where it built, profit go back to Japan. Chung Lee think this just another girly car by Honda for snobs and arrivisites.
Congrats

No UAW...continued success. UAW...bankrupt. Pretty simple, no?

Congratulations, Honda, and thanks for your continued commitment to Ohio!

Good more jobs in the states. Hey chung lee you must be a GM fan. Did you notice that GM is setting up shop in China to export some trucks back to the states. Where are our jobs for that? did you know GM also makes cars and trucks in Mexico again where is the US company supporting its american workers. Way to go Toyota and Honda lets keep most of your factorys here in the states. GM can go suck a lemon american company, cars made over seas. Honda Japanese company cars made in the USA!!!!

Well it's nice for Honda to think of Ohio. However, anybody who has actually seen the car knows they're probably only going to sell about 3 of them because they're so ugly. What was Honda thinking when they designed it?

JQP has it right, my Honda Accord was built in Marysville, OH so it contributes to American jobs. GM has parts made in Mexico and cars assembled in Canada

Don't know why folks think it's ugly and looks like an aztec... Aztexs are all boxy and sharp angles every which way...it looks like a Dodge Acura only more rounded than sharp edges....and unlike some of the other vehicles around that Honda will most likely out last them and out preform them...sounds like sour grapes giving their opinion to me. Personally I am happy to see more work coming to the state. Thanks Honda!!! keep up th good work

The photos at the Edmunds web site look good to me. Maybe up close and in person the styling will not look that good but I think it looks fine. Now whether there is a market for this 4 door Accord on steroids is another issue. Hopefully there is as that will create more demand for the vehicle and that means more jobs for Ohio workers.

It's not the prettiest car in the world, but it's not the ugliest, either. It's basically a curvy, tall station wagon.
