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.

Great car in all respects.

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

I have owned this car for nearly 5 years. Bought with about 45,000miles, now it has about 110,000miles. No Problems at all, changed front brakes once, still has original rear brakes. Changed original battery when the car was 7 years old, changed spark plugs once. Great fuel mileage, roomy, comfortable, handles very well. Fantastic bang for the buck. I own a big block trans am, so I know performance, and this 4 cylinder performs very well, more than enough power for day to day driving. Paint is fading, but hey, its 9 years old... Engine and ABS light are on, but oh well.. Best car I've ever owned, and the way its going I'll probably have it for a long time to come.

Best value for a vehicle

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

First car owned where I didn't use the bumper to bumper warranty, and after 6.5 years, and 139K miles, never a broken item, or single adjustment. Replaced tires, brakes, rotors once, air filters, oil change every 3K, and transmission drain and fill every 15K. Still love the way it drives, hoping to get 300K.




Awesome car

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Bought this car used with 78,000 miles, in little over 2 years we have put on another 62,000 miles. Change the oil every 5,000 miles religiously. Other than a new set of tires that is it. In my opinion the body styling looks better than the new models. I may look for a low mileage similar model when buying again.




Best car ever owned

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Best car I have ever owned. As near perfect as can get. I like the body style better on this car better than the newer body styles. If we take a trip its in this car. I buy the best tires and batteries when I replace them. Easy access to the cabin air filter behind the glove box. Takes me 3 to 5 min to change out once a year.




My first love

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

My first Honda, drives great, gotta love the I-vtec. I have the 4cyl and it kicks. 160hp is not bad for the price.




The best car ever

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

To all who are looking into purchasing this car, GET IT! I was considering to purchase a luxury model vehicle and I found that all of the things that I was looking for in those cars were found in the Honda Accord. I actually saved myself $13,000 in financing based on the features and options found in the luxury models vs. the Honda Accord. And darn it, the car is just all of that!!
