Default Should I trade my Accord?

I thought about trading my 07 Accord for an 07 Mazda6. My husband is totally against this decision and said absolutely no way!!! However, when I had the Mazda6 (rental) I fell in love the performance more so than my Accord. My husband thinks Accord is by far better than the Mazda. What do you think?

Keep the Accord, it's a better value, I drove the Mazda6 V-6 also and it's a great car but seeing as you already have the Accord stick with it

well if its your car its your decision but i think you should do it Mazda 6s are really good cars and are underrated the problem is it doesnt have as much trade in value as an accord so if you eventually trade in your mazda you might not get that much.

I think your husband is 100% correct. The Mazda doesn't even compare to value, style, reliability and retention of value to the Accord.

If you bought the Accord this year, you will pretty much lose a good value through depreciation if you trade in. You are looking at losing a lot of money... I have a Mazda 6 V6 and I love it. I have owned Accords (V4 and V6). Personally I prefer the Accord V6 - it has a smooth engine, but be aware that it has known transmission problems... (do a search on google for "accord transmission problems")... But if you have a V4 I can completely understand why you like the Mazda 6 better... Mazda 6 is fun to drive... So if you are okay with losing some money in getting the Mazda 6 and losing some more money in depreciation after you get the Mazda 6, trade in your Accord to a Mazda 6. Another thing that you want to consider is buying an 06 Mazda 6 (V6) which is what I did. You should get a good one for about $15k.... Good luck!
