Plus they still posted their test results when using 87. It's like they're looking for reasons to justify their love for the Accord.

I totally agree. It was driving me crazy when it kept switching to the 2017 when they really meant to switch to the base 4 cylinder engine (I think). But that's the issue, I'm not sure if they were reviewing the 2018 base version or using the review from last year on a 2017 to save time. It makes me question the details on everything else. They kept saying the Grand Touring was the range topper and then the next paragraph would talk about the Signature.

There is a difference in manual mode when you floor it and depress the button on the floor versus not. If you push the accelerator all the way to the floor and depress the button under the pedal, the car seems to revert to shifting to maintain maximum power, so it shifts around 5500 rpm. If you don't, it goes up to like 6100 rpm or so, I can't recall if it upshifts on its own, though.
