All Accords sold in North America came with a completely new all aluminium 2. Also noteworthy, all Accords equipped with automatic transmissions used an electronically controlled rear engine mount to reduce low frequency noise and vibration.
The mount contained two fluid filled chambers separated by a computer controlled valve. At low engine speeds, fluid is routed through the valve damping vibration. Above rpm, fluid is routed around the valve making the engine mount stiffer.
The Canadian Accord trim levels varied slightly from the U.
