Okay, I do like the CD changer and
sunroof. As for the rest of the car, I
am not impressed. Outside, the design
is bland, and the badly-aligned
trunklid indicates poor build quality.
Under the hood, I see a layout that
dates back to 1990. Inside, controls
and switchgear are well-weighted, but
cheap materials are abundant. Seats
are unsupportive, upholstered with
econocar-like cloth, and cramped. The
roof squeaks horribly, handling is
wallowy, and the engine runs with an
annoying drone. In the trunk, there is
an un-lined trunklid, compact spare
tire, and a rear seat that folds in one
piece. No 60/40 split. This is
unacceptable on a car of this class,
where luxury is now an issue.
6-disc in-dash CD changer, sunroof, pen
holder beside shift lever.
The car needs to be larger, made with
better materials and build quality,
designed better, and it needs to be
updated to twenty-first century
technology. At least an ashtray sould
be standard. My advice: don't even
bother with this car. Get a Volkswagen
Passat or Toyota Camry.
Our first Honda. Purchased new. It
has been the best-ever car for us.
Average mpg on road 36-38. Competent
handling. Comfortable interior of high
quality materials. Excellent switch
gear. Absolutely reliable. If this one
ever wears out, we will purchase
Road noise is more than we would like.
However, Honda has already improved
With regular maintanence, I have had
zero problems. What it lacks in power
and racing qualities, it makes up for
in ease of driving and quality
workmanship. Honda has made an
extremely dependable and enjoyable car.
I bought my Accord about 3 weeks ago
and it seems to be a great car. I
have read many positive reviews on the
car and they all seem to be holding
true so far. The only bad thing I
noticed is the paint is very touchy to
pretty much anything. But overall,
I would highly recommend this car to
radio controls, comfortable & quiet
interior, dual exhaust, sunroof
harder paint, standard foglights, more
pick-up (off the line), more colorful
radio displays, lighted buttons in
window, lock, and radio buttons on
