Pros: most everything
Cons: needs lumbar support and the annoying beep when you don't have your seatbelt hooked
Advice: keeping this car more than 5 yrs is worth paying the money if you're on a budgetmost perfect car to date. looks good, performs great, even for a 4 cylinder, and gas mileage is superb. this car could use a lumbar support for long trips. i'm not sure about other cars and their 2.4 liter engine, but honda has found that perfect balance between performance and economy. 2 months ago we went 500 miles and averaged 32 mpg going 85-90 mph with 3 of us and luggage filled the trunk. last week i went 2000 miles averaged 70-75 and got 34.3 during one stretch and twice got 37 mpg. it's a keeper!
Pros: I brought it back
Advice: Do not buy this car!This car completely and totally sucks. I owned it less than 1 month and everything started creaking and cracking 2 weeks after I bought it. I immediately brought it back and went across the street to pickup the brand new Hyundai Azera. It's like night and day. The Azera cost me 3,500$ less than the Accord and it's a million times better, with a much better warranty!! Anyone who buys an Accord without looking at the Azera should have their heads examined.
Pros: Fit & Finish of vehicle
Cons: No paddle shifters available
Advice: Offers everything a TL or G35 can for less moneyThis is the fourth honda I've owned in ten years. Got the 6 speed manual with leather and love it! Has a more sportier feel with rev limiter, stabilizer bars and larger wheels. But still has all the comfort and convenience my wife's '03 EX-V6 had. Heated mirrors and lighted wheel controls are nice new features. Also like the carbon fiber look on the inside trim instead of the brushed aluminum. After giving up my '98 Prelude I was hesitant that this wouldn't be sporty enough for my driving style. Too my suprise, I can still take those fast corners and carry more people doing it.
Pros: Controls on the steering wheel
Cons: Black interior....collects lots of lint
Advice: You have to at least check this car out.I have had this car for 3 months now and I love it. The ride is smooth. I love the controls for the radio on the steering wheel. It is a very roomy car. Best car I have owned so far.
Pros: graphite gray exterior
Cons: Black cloth interior
Advice: Somewhat sporty looking without sacraficing gas milageBought LX 4cyl. Plenty of power. Do not care for the Black cloth interior. Isn't that attractive and gathers alot of lint. Owned car for 1 week now. So far I enjoy driving it and no complaints about the ride and quality.
