So I’ve been grappling with the whole idea of trading in my financed Accord with the CVT and my brain just keeps running in circles. Buy something close to the value of my Accord like a Civic Si, but something older like a 8th gen Si or RSX, buy a Miata...

I guess I like the idea of getting out from under a loan sooner, really want to but a manual ever since buying, fixing and selling the $500 manual Saturn. Sometimes I think I should just live with the Accord (there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, I like it but don’t love it), but I just keep thinking about it. What say you Oppo? What’s with my fixation on needing a manual; too much time on jalopnik? Should I find a new hobby? Should I buy something interesting?
