My BIL in Washington fills his RX with regular octane lol. I think there will some mileage and performance hit but in Canada, probably makes sense to gamble especially if premium is recommended only.

Not sure about knocking because most modern cars have anti-knocking.

Unfortunately car manufacturers don't provide us with a real breakdown of what performance/fuel-econ hits we take when people do that.

I don't even care about the performance hit if it has over 200 HP / torque, haha, just the fuel economy but gasoline in the States is usually cheap outside of California and maybe NYC and premium doesn't cost way more.

I had all those options in a 2017 Kia Optima SX and I gotta say they're all worth the money (but not for Honda's price). Not too crazy about the driver's seat position memory though.
Memory seats come in handy when you share your car with someone else in your household. It's also great when you take it to your mechanic and they move the seat position.

I think all Lexus RX use regular octane (87)...unlike our NX which use premium but we put 89 in it lol

No, I had to fill it up once when visiting and it says something like 91 octane recommended.

So in the USA, the higher trim Honda Accord have an advanced noise reduction package, where the carpets are better, and both the windshield and front windows are acoustic laminated. Anyone know if Canadian Accord have the same advanced noise reduction package? Canadian Accord are usually better equipped. According to the brochure, I see only acoustic windshield on the EX-L and Touring trims.

Didn't know these turbos are reliable and made by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI).

So far not a lot of of 9th I4 gen owners complained about the carbon deposit build up so it's really just finding about the reliability of the 10-speed auto in the Odyssey and Accord.

There's actually a few Lexus vehicles that use regular octane (87) like the ES series. Tbh wish more vehicles (outside performance intended models) in the luxury field would do this...kind of a kick in the pants to buy 91 octane, well a kick in the pants that never stops kicking you anyways.

I get what you are saying lol that is why we just put 89 in ours.
I honestly do not notice any difference btwn 89 vs 91. But ours is a lease...so it's really not "my" car Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Still cool that the accord 2.0 uses regular and it's a de-tune civic type r egine.

So turbo lag is more of a nuisance on manual trannies or is it equally bad on the 10 AT? I have never driven a turbocharged car.

People on DriveAccord complain about the lag but are they just nitpicking because they are stuck with 7-9th gen, like me?

I watched or read somewhere saying the turbo lag is more apparent on the manual transmission vehicles compared to the CVT for the 1.5T engine. I would assume the same to apply for the 2.0T since you have to let go of the gas to shift, whereas in an automatic, the turbo is always spooled up.
