Accord or tsx to replace 850?

I wrote recently about the difficulty I’m having replacing my totaled 1997 Volvo 850 - I’m still walking - which probably isn’t a bad thing ! What if one were considering something used, 2008, certified, low mileage - what about a Honda Accord vs an Acura TSX ? TSX’s dimensions similar to old 850, TSX needs premium, both have decent reliability/safety stats, gas mileage not outstanding for either one - I’m a retired senior thus not putting on big commute miles but I’m often on a freeway.



Any replacement comments appreciated,

TSX is a driver’s car and engaging to drive if you like that.

An Accord is a comfy vehicle for passengers/driver.

Take them both for a spin and then decide.
