Default Which is the better car as far as maintenance? 2006 EX-L or 2008 LX-P Honda Accord?

Which is the better car as far as maintenance. I am looking to buy one and see a 2006 Honda Accord EX-L V4 with 78000 miles or an 2008 Honda Accord manual LX-P with 75000 miles. Would you recommend one over the other? I need help. -Daniel E

They are both Accords and 4 cylinders and most likely would have the same maintenance schedule.

The LX-P being manual has a clutch that wears out, I drove an accord manual for a long time and remember having to replace the clutch even though it was properly maintained.

Then I switched to a newer Accord with auto transmission and 13 yrs + have not had any issue with the transmission.

If the price difference of the two is not much, In my own opinion I would pick the 2008. I like the updated version of its looks and it has a little more hp under the hood.

Either way, both good cars, you cant go wrong.
