All in all, the Honda Accord 7th generation cars are fantastic but here are our recommendations. If you seek fuel economy, engine performance, speed, less maintenance cost and fewer car problems, go for the Honda Discussion continues. If space, affordability, and fuel tank volume is your concern, then the Honda End of Discussion is ideal for you.
Both Honda End of Discussion and Honda Discussion Continues come with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 3-liter J30 V6 engine option. The 4-cylinder engine in the Honda EOD puts out about 157 horsepower at every 5,600 revs per minute, while the one in the Honda Discussion Continues boasts 160 HP at 5,500 rpm. The V6 for both cars manages a 244 HP at almost similar revs.
This is also the case in fuel economy. Both cars have a 20 miles per gallon rating in the city, but the Honda Discussion Continues does better on the highway with 35 mpg as compared the Honda Accord End of Discussion 34 mpg. You can obviously tell that the Honda Discussion continues is a better fuel economy car and has a lot more speed as well. So we recommend it as against the Honda End of Discussion.
Honda models are famous for high fuel economy rate
Both Honda Accord End of Discussion and Honda Discussion Continues have a lot of similarities with their interior and exterior that makes it almost difficult to tell them apart. They are both roomy, comfortable, built for off-road drives, do well on long trips, have an organised tech dashboard, large seats and nicely finished interior.
But surprisingly, the Honda End of Discussion which is the predecessor has bigger wheels than the Honda Discussion continues. It also has a much bigger truck of almost 17 feet in volume as against the Honda Discussion Continues boot which is just 14 feet. The Honda EOD has a fuel tank that is also about a one and half liters more than its successor. Therefore, if passenger room, fuel tank volume and cargo space are what you seek, then the Honda End of discussion is perfect.

5. Pros and cons
Both cars have similar pros and cons to doubt. They have a good feel on the road, responsive steering wheel, quiet engine, and very little road or wind noise that you only notice when you're on really high speed. The cars are easy to maintain especially if you opt for the variants with 4-cylinder engines.
The 4-cylinder engines come with a timing chain that doesn't need any replacement until it's totally bad (which rarely occurs). The V6 engine, however, comes with a timing belt that needs to be replaced after about 80,000 miles. This is where the disadvantages start.
Both cars have similar appearance from behind
The Honda End of Discussion witnesses paint peeling off, which is not usually the issue with the Honda discussion continues. The Honda EOD also has transmission issues in the V6 variant. This hardly happens in the Honda discussion continues. You won't want to all your saved-up money visiting the mechanic. Honda discussion continues is more expensive though. So if you are on a budget, go for the Honda End of discussion. But if quality is what you seek, the Honda Discussion continues is great.
When you go to purchase either of these cars, there are quite a number of things to look out for on both. Firstly test drive it and check for white or blue smoke from the exhaust system. If there is, avoid the car. Also check the starter motor and rear O2 sensor. If they seem faulty, get the seller to fix them as quickly as possible. Drivers have complained about excessive oil consumption. Perhaps this is something to look out for.
Also check the engine light, automatic transmission shifts, oil level, air conditioning, and power steering pump. If you hear strange noises, then there are faults that need to be fixed. The audio player too malfunctions.

As for maintenance, the Honda End of Discussion seemingly would cost a lot more to maintain, no thanks to paint peels and transmission issues. But once you follow through with routine maintenance, washing of the vehicle, topping up of oil and replacing of worn-out parts, you have nothing to worry about. However, we recommend the Honda discussion continues for minimal maintenance costs.
