2014 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4 4 cylinder from North America
A competent, comfortable midsize car with a few dim spots
There has been a glitch in the automatic power locks that the dealer attempted to fix by reflashing the body module software to no avail.
The HondaLink SMS integration with my smartphone failed after an update, so safe, seamless reading of text messages received no longer works.
Paint quality is terrible; the car has developed more and bigger chips and scratches in the paint than any other car I've ever owned.
The car has amazing acceleration for what it is, a basic four-cylinder midsize sedan.
It rides pretty comfortably and has lots of creature comforts.
It gets pretty awful gas mileage in heavy traffic. Even with a very light foot on the open road, it still doesn't live up to its published numbers, although it does pretty well (but this is the first car I've had with constant fuel economy monitoring instead of occasionally tracking how many kilometers driven and amount of fuel used between top-ups).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
