2013 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4 gas from North America
Fantastic car with roomy, comfortable interior
Was at the dealer looking for a new Civic, but couldn't get leather seats and wheel without having to also take Navi. I just didn't like the way it looked. So I tested the Accord instead. Fell in love immediately. After 2.5 years of running this car, it still amazes me every time I drive it how good it is. I have had a few Civics and 4 other Accords, as well as other cars from other manufacturers over the years, and 3 years in a car will be a record for me. I can't imagine myself not in this car in 2023. It is a shame however that if you want the Accord hybrid now, the cost is so outrageous that any normal customer will likely never save enough fuel to pay the 7000 dollar upcharge. Still our Accord has hit the 5.5l/100km mark many times on the highway, and has a range of about 1000 km. I typically drive 100km/hr, because this car is so fun to be in I wouldn't want to be in it less.
I love how this car seems to to glide over the roads in comfort, but if pushed hard on the off ramps, it feels firm enough to want to be pushed harder. Comes standard with a tower brace (nice touch).
Equipped with a set of Nokian Hakkapillita R2's, winters here in New Brunswick have been a breeze with the electronic traction control keeping the car plowing through the crazy snowstorms we get. There is a button to disable it, but I have never even considered pushing it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
