Review of the 2004 Honda Accord

  • A perennial "most researched" on Edmunds.com, the 2004 Honda Accord's combination of refinement, interior space and features make it an excellent choice when shopping for a midsize family sedan or coupe.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Tight build quality, quiet cabin, refined and powerful engines, reputation for quality and durability, high crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Tepid handling doesn't match up to the 240-hp V6's promise of driving excitement.

  • What's New for 2004

    As the model was fully redesigned for the 2003 model year, there are only a few changes on the 2004 Honda Accord. Availability of side curtain airbags has been expanded this year to four-cylinder EX models -- standard on those with leather, optional on cars with a cloth interior. All four- and six-cylinder EX models equipped with a leather interior now have XM Satellite Radio with three months of free service as standard equipment. And as with all Honda cars this year, a new seatbelt reminder system is standard. Accord models meeting California's stringent Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) standards -- all four-cylinder sedans equipped with automatic transmission -- will also be sold in the states of New York, Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts.

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Traded in Toyota Matrix (brand new) for the Accord Coupe LX, Manual. What a difference. Accord (4-cyl) performs like a 6-cylinder car. I love it. Before Matrix I had Golf 1.8T which wqas a good performer. Accord beats it no problem! The design is beautiful, inside and out. Although it is a coupe, it has enough room for 4 people. Super quiet and isolated from outside noise. When I showed it first to my friends, they thought it was a Mercedes!
