2005 Honda Accord EX 4cil. VTec


Trendy, reliable and very inexpensive to maintain



General Comments:

I had never owned a Honda before. Until I won an accord in a draw! That is how I got into Hondas.

The interiors and exteriors are very well built. The inside is very very roomy, it has a nice design. Leather is of high quality and white exterior paint shines a lot under the sun.

Sadly I will sell it because, financially speaking, I am absorbing the depreciation of owning such a new car.

Value will go down to 60% to 50% in the first two years of any new car. Is now already 30% down from invoice value.

I am thirty one years young, and if I were in different circumstances, I would definitely keep this car.

The accord is very pleasant to drive, is a gasoline saver, passengers seat comfortably, and it has a very spacious trunk.

A month ago, I took her to the 5k service, and paid $52USD for everything.

For the most complete insurance policy available in Mexico paid only $600USD/year. This talks about the incredibly low maintenance costs for owning an accord.

As I said, had not I have other financial obligations I would definitely keep the car for years and years.

I will buy one in a year or so. But will look for one three to four years old to minimize depreciation costs.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The way I read it, the owner has other financial obligations and wants to sell the car at the best possible price, so the depreciation is important.

"Who in there right mind gets rid of a FREE CAR whats your issue I have a 05 Accord I would keep it."

That's possibly the dumbest thing I've read in a while. The incentive to sell something expensive you essentially received for free is always high. Think about it.
