ULEV = ultra low emission vehicle. you already answered your question, get the V6 if you want more power.

youre thinking of the 6th gen auto trannys. 7th gens both are fine, pick one with more power if that's what you desire.

The 2003 and 2004 auto transmissions were problematic with the V-6. Supposedly it has been rectified in the newer models......?

I've got the '04 V6 and I love it....It's my first Honda, but not the first one I've driven. I dont think ill ever go back to domestics....If I could though I would have gotten the 6sp just for the fun of ripping gears...and after my warranty is up a TURBO, and motor work...anyway,my car still had factory powertrain warranty on it when I bought it. I guess its certified used. see if the one ur looking at is certified and if so drive the wheels off that Biatchand get it fixed under warranty
