Default 2008 Accord V6 VCM Engine

Am looking at possibly getting a 2008 accord but I question the V6
Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) technology. I want the power but
I want reliability also.

What is the track record of this cylinder cutoff stuff. It makes me
nervous when the spec sheet starts talking about noise cancellation
when running with cylinders cut off.

Then head to odyclub.com; on the Odyssey they've had this for two, three
years now.

Get one with a 6 speed! According to the spec sheet, VCM is only
available in the automatics.

I have it in my Odyssey. It is completely transparent. I believe my wife's
Accord hybrid has it too. Once again you would have no idea it is there.
Note that only some of the Odyssey's have the feature. Mine is a 2006
touring model.

This is absolutely true; the real question regarding reliability lies after
100,000 miles...
