Scotty thinks the 2012 Accord 5 speed automatic transmission will last, but prefer standard tranny. Also likes their 4 cylinder engine over 6 but either works. Prefers 2.0 L 4 cylinder engine over the smaller one 1.5 L and avoid Turbo Charging as it wears out the engine quicker and can lead to oil dilution (gas leak past piston rings into oil chamber).
Burr or blade didn't seem to affect taste. Both yielded good tasting coffee. When using blade, pulse for one second and shake to disperse the beans for a more even grind. BTW, Krups was highest rated blade grinder, which is the one I have :)
