Here's a summary of MY2005 changes for Honda (not Acura) at TOV:

http://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=231195

- the hybrid Accord is _huge_ news, so I have to wonder about the validity of that info. You'd think we would have heard about it (or seen a concept car) by now.

- apart from that, not much new on the Accord, which isn't good news for those hoping for substantial changes on the TSX.

- also disappointing because the 3rd MY isn't too early to start addressing some of those styling issues.

Well, well, somebody got in trouble for that article, because it's gone now. So are all the forum posts associated with it. Oh well, internet censorship at its best. I can certainly understand if the article needed to be pulled, and I suppose the forum comments would also have "incriminating" content. But TOV should really post a note apologizing that they had to pull the article.

You couldn't get away with that sort of behaviour in the print world.

Looks like the forums were talking about it as early as Jan. I'm still surprised Honda hasn't made more noise about it, especially with all the attention the Prius is getting.

The State of Missouri ordered 50 new Toyota Prius for fleet use. They currently have 20-25 2002 Prius for state gov't workers.
