The last accord I really liked was the 6th generation. It still holds up today in its styling

I have the first year of the previous generation - a 2013 Accord, and have driven it 6.5years and 125K miles and there's really not a thing I can fault it on. I am sure the Camry is a good car too, so nothing against them, but if I were getting another sedan, my choice would be another Accord :-). They are handsome, quiet, ride nice, get great gas mileage for their size... the CVT took me a little while to get used to, but now I prefer it - it keeps the engine quieter and gets better mileage and the motor probably even lasts longer because under normal conditions, from my driveway up to 75mph on the highway, I never break 2000 RPM - it's basically just constant engine speed from 25mph to 75mph @ 2000RPM, quiet and no drama. They also accelerate and handle pretty well for a family car and that inspires confidence in traffic.

Never cared for the Toyota or Lexus design.

I'm considering both of these for my next car. Specifically the Accord 2.0T vs Camry XSE V6. Right now I drive a 2017 Civic EX and to be honest I am REALLY leaning towards the Camry. I love the styling of the Camry and prefer the V6 to the Turbo. Both look to be great cars but I give the nod to the Toyota.

both of these midsize sedans are on the pinnacle in their recreation, but we assume the Honda Accord has a mild aspect over the Toyota Camry. An interior it is a bit nicer, a more low-cost hybrid and the provision of Android car and a guide transmission are enough for us to provide it a more potent recommendation than we would provide the Camry.

Probably get a better deal on a Camry given Toyota’s latest subsidized leases and cash rebates. Saw yesterday just some of Toyota’s cash rebates:

2019 Avalon (including hybrid) - $2,500 cash rebate
2019 Corolla - $2,000 cash rebate
2019 Camry - $1,500 cash rebate
2019 Sienna - $3,000 cash rebate
2019 C-HR - $1,500 cash rebate

Lexus looks like they have upped their rebates:

2019 IS 300 - $2,500 cash rebate
2019 RX 350 -$2,000 cash rebate
2019 LX 470 - $4,000 cash rebate
2019 LC 500 - $5,000 cash rebate
2019 LS 500 - $2,500 cash rebate

Honda offers low APR financing, but hold their value better cause Toyota is always having to offer subsidized leases and huge cash rebates to keep sales moving.

Consumer quality complaints can mean a loose piece of plastic, etc. - not an engine, transmission or major defect.

So there are always lots of variables....
Exactly- the same link that was posted to prove Toyota and Honda are going downhill fast actually included a comment that Toyota was the manufacturer with the least number of defects.

Other rankings of brand reliability list Toyota in second place, just behind Lexus. Toyota has not been going "downhill".

Camry high pressure fuel pump $848 - $1.1k for v6 another several hundred for fuel injectors... but that's less than the cost of a turbo or cvt failure for the Accord. BTW, Accord also has a high pressure fuel pump and expensive fuel injectors.
