What's there to be subjective about, unless you're blind? The Accord has historically had a strong, consistant pattern from which it continues to draw today. Just some examples from the CG5/6th Gen Accord (like mine)...
  • beveled headlights
  • a soft line drawing the front fender into the rear and growing more crisp until it terminates
  • A rising beltline
  • A high, crisp rear resembling other excellent Honda designs, like the NSX, CBR and CRX. Can you not see the CBR tailight in the tailight of The Accord 6th gen coupe?
  • A constant re-occuring trapezoid theme throughout the car, form the fog light housings below the headlights, to the up and down button on the steering wheel for the radio volume
  • The car screams with flow that is undeniable.
  • A strong, distinct, American design.

The last point addresses your 2nd point. The Accord, at the time, was the most American car sold that year, per content, R/D and assembly. More American than "domestics".

There is no lose with The Accord. Only Constant Win. And with that constant win, the women, they flock.

Aw, that's gay... Just keep looking around. My friend bought a brand new mustang from this chick who wants to move back to England. It barely had any miles (not over 3,000) and bought it for something ridiculous like $5,000 or so. Just keep looking.

Whats the rule with passengers? Each 100lbs uses up like 40hp or more I think. Someone on here should know the true figure.

It comes down to personal taste. While you may see an awesome car, I see a sensible family automobile that lends itself well to tuning by enthusiasts.

That's a nice list, but it points out little details that only a long time enthusiast would notice. To the rest of the world that is not into the import tuning scene, it's just a nice sensible car with ho-hum looks. Just give me the NSX!!!!!!!!!

Yes, this point alone would make any girl cream her panties.

Again, I say maybe in your import tuner world, but in real life... not so much.
