Very Good Quality
Pros: Quality built
Cons: light rear-endConsidering its a base model, I feel I have all the necessary features. As for road holding, I traded in a '96 Nissan Maxima which held the road better. All in all, I'm pleased with it.
Black/Black 2009 EX-L V6 w/Nav
Pros: Can't think of just one
Cons: Sometimes the cylinder shut down mode feels mildly herky jerky on the highway when it switches back and forth.This is my first Accord and I am very happy with it. It's really an all around great car and my girlfriend loves it too. It's very attractive looking, comfortable, has good merging & passing power yet gets good gas mileage, Nice Nav system & great overall quality. Feels almost like I'm driving a BMW. My previous car for the record was a 500hp Corvette Z06. Big change I know, but I needed something more practical.
Cons: upholsery fabricReliabiliy, quality and good service at dealership. This is my second Accord with cloth interior...bad choice. Fabric continuies to pill and rubs off while cleaning, never looks clean. Go for the leather.
Honda review by an unbiased driver
Pros: the power curve. 6 cylinder screaming machine
Cons: the leather on the arm rest bubbled upI haved purchased and driven 5 new autos in my 60 years, 2 chevys, 1 ford, 1 toyota, and 1 Honda and all have been higher end. The most fun and the most reliable, and the best looking is the Honda by far, when I get in the Accord my face lights up and I feel good, not many cars do that for me but my Accord does I recomend it highly and the service on it is top notch with no BS from the dealer. Way to go Honda
My first Honda but the last!
Pros: High quality . . . no breakdowns
Cons: narrow seatsBest attribute in my opinion is the low maintenance and a very reliable car. The only issue is the rear brakes of which the pads were replaced at 30 k miles. Seats are a little to narrow for comfort and I'm 5'10' and 185 lbs. Everything else works great! Does not perform like an Acura TL/BMW but that is a whole different league of automobile (including payment). I highly recommend if you want a no thrills, with decent performance, type of car.
Best vehicle I've ever owned
Pros: The power the engine has w/ the air on!
Cons: The fact that this is a car not an SUVI was a fanatic drive American vehicle person for years. Purchasing GM models was my personal fav! I was forced to purchase my Honda due to AAA service changing my oil with a bad oil filter. My oil drained slowly, the engine siezed! I needed a car quick! What a fantastic car Honda has produced. I will buy more in the future. this car is comfortable, very good on gas & the quality is just not to be found in an American car model. Everything about this car is top notch.
Rough Riding Accord
Cons: ComfortOveral the cars quality is good.The car has a bad blind spot , must really adjust mirrors to compensate for the view. I've tried different tires but the car still has a rough ride .
