I would agree that the 8th Gen has great handling - cant fault it. Too many motoring journalists deliberately look for faults (which usually arent there) to take the shine off what is otherwise a fine automobile.who say the 8th gen hasn't got good handling? the steering dead centre it can be massive annoyance for a 7th gen owners upgrading but handling is spot on.
DPF there isn't any issues so why the bad publicity , forget about DPF horror stories on other mickey mouse cars. 8th gen is sound a pound.
It will be fine mate - mustn't worry.What do you think mine will be like? I have a New Accord 2.4 petrol (ADAS- all the toys) on order. Will be with me hopefully 6th jan 2012
