A beautiful machine that is sporty, yet economical
Honda redesigned the Accord for 2008. The car is more aggressive looking than the previous model. It definitely stands out in a crowd.
The fit and finish of the vehicle are excellent. The doors close very quietly and smoothly.
The 2.4 liter engine is rated at 190 hp. It is very smooth and has the power to get up and go when it is needed. The 5 speed automatic shifts very smoothly.
The car also came with a ground effects package from the factory. Most people find it hard to believe that option came from the factory.
The car handles like a high performance sports car. It takes tight curves at higher speeds with ease.
Fuel economy is fairly good. I typically get 30-32 on the highway and 27-28 in town.
The only complaint so far are the front seats. They are designed for longevity, thus are as hard as a rock and not very comfortable. The lumbar support is not adjustable and the headrests are permanently affixed forward.
I will probably keep the car. I'll just have to be creative with seat cushions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
