Summary:

Above average in quality, craftsmanship, economy

Faults:

NONE.

General Comments:

Good value for the money. Safe and dependable, very inexpensive to operate. Easy to park and get around city driving. The 2004 body style has good eye appeal and is well suited for driving three kids to school. We drive it on trips less than 400 Mi for the great fuel mileage approx:30 to 34.Trunk has good space for a car of this size. Cloth seats are a little too firm for our taste, but;it will probably wear good over the years.

... just bought a LX V6! It was like that when drove for the first time and is very quick. 0-60 around ~7 sec. Didn't find any rattling sound yet. Got better warranties because I bought a used 2005 car with 4730 miles on it. I purchased the transferable 84/100K Honda care by paying reasonable extras. Maybe this will help to get the better re-sale value in the future. This is my first new car.

Previous carMercedes-Benz M-Class

Summary:

Reliable car in a great package, just don't expect a plush interior or superior ride quality

Faults:

The top rear brake light went out at 3,000 miles. The dealer repaired it in under 10 minutes and it was covered by warranty.

General Comments:

The gas mileage was very disappointing. The EPA estimates 24-34 miles per gallon. I never got better than 28 mpg even on the highway. Typically, on mixed driving I only got 24 mpg. Acceleration was better than expected, quite a lot of get up and go from such a small engine though.

The front seats were very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this is due to the fact that I am tall, or if everyone gets a terrible backache after only an hour in the car.

There is a lot of road noise.

When it was cold out, the dash/windshield made a rattling noise. Never could figure out exactly where it was coming from.

The interior of this car in very pleasing to look at. Mine was silver with all black interior. Expect the black to show every little piece of dirt though.

I would have kept this car for a lot longer and probably continued to enjoy it, but with a 2-door and a baby on the way I had to upgrade to something bigger.

I'm guessing you have an auto trans. I have the EX-L with 4cyl and manual trans. I get 30mpg in the summer and no less than 26 in the winter. Highway is much better.

Excellent reliable and inexpensive car. Runs great, doesn't eat gas, just a fun vehicle to drive. Lots of cabin room, will definitely get another one as soon as the lease is done.

I've had the Accord since 2003, but it's a 2004 model, and my first import car. It's definitely worth the money I'm paying, I actually feel real safe in this car, and just love driving it. As for quality, as I've said it's my first import, I don't know what kind of cars, Honda used to make, but I am very satisfied with this one.

But I will definitely will never go back to American cars, my Dodge gave me 4 years of constant headaches and worrying. I guess it will be Honda and Nissan from now on.

Summary:

Good value for a top notch Honda

Faults:

My head gasket blew at 5,000.

Dealer was puzzled. Apparently mine was the first case. Being assembled locally, I had to wait for the Japanese engineers from the assembly plant from 200 km away to come and study the problem before they got it fixed.

It took them full week. Warranty covers everything, but my TIME wasted!

General Comments:

This is my 3rd Honda Accord since owning the first one in 1987. Honda has outdone themselves this time. This car is worthy of carrying the Honda badge! It's everything you'd expect from a Honda.

Excellent ride and handling. Frugal consumption (as good as my wife's diesel powered KIA Sorento). Very decent quality.

My only gripe is the interior color is light beige. The plastics, rugs and seats. It is very, very hard to keep clean.

I opted for the 2.0 rather than the 2.4 which costs 2,800.00 pounds more. The 2.0 churns out 150 HP and the 2.4 160 HP. The only other advantage the 2.4 has over the 2.0 here are electric leather seats, cruise control, climate control air con (as opposed to manual), a 6 discs CD Changer (as opposed to single disc) plus those buttons on the steering wheel.

Stuff either I don't really need or can get fixed later at a relatively low cost.
