I was just driving my aunt's 94-95 (can't remember exact year) accord today and i noticed that i could take a turn a lot better than i was ever able to with my 93 camry. at the same speeds, the accord was able to turn tighter without that... 'too quick' turning feel. both cars are stock. so i was just wondering if the difference was due to the suspensions of both cars? as well how do stock accord's suspensions compare to that of stock camry suspensions? thanks.

Honda's just handle better. Sorry Toyota guys, but it's true. Although I do think that Toyota is the better car maker. I have two Accord's, a 94 and a 98 and one Camry, a 95, the Camry is wallowy, but it's supposed to be a more luxury sedan than the sportier Accord. Then I have a Subaru Legacy, and boy, does that blow both the Accords and the Camry out of the water.

Toyota likes to feel like a "tight" but old school floaty barge car.
Honda is middle of the road with less quality.
Mazda makes the most crazy ass stock setups.

^--especially with the Mazda MP3 Protoge, that thing was out running Porsches in the slalom..:eek:


i've always seen the Accord as the sportier of the two...

it's only natural that it'd handle the turns better too..

I think its the difference in weight. If Im not mistaken, the Cam is a lot heavier than the accord?

I like what was in my '99 protege. That, being macphearson setup. $150 rear sway bar and you can out auto-x jsut about any other sub compact that hasn't had major work done with a descent set of tires.

If I wouldn't have killed that car I would have the lex tho!

Everyone is going to tell you you'll ahve to do a fully suspension upgrade. For the same money spend in upgrades, the Honda will always be sportier.
