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.

Poor

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

I have drove hondas before this is the worst. I am spending more money on repairs than the value of the car. I think I am going to try a camary next. I had issues with the front axles, airbags and the car was not in ANY accidents!! Even Honda couldnt understand it, which I think was a LIE!




Great car

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

So far this has been a great car. I was kind of concerned with the high mileage, but after I had the car checked out by 2 different mechanics, I was told that this is a great used car to buy and should get many more miles on it.




"nice"

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

It just does everything you would want from a commuter car very well. The sound system is an added plus.




I have never been happier

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

I have never thought I could love a car as much as I do. This car has everything I need, and even more. I love the style of the car, the shape makes it so sporty, yet it has so much room in it. I believe after this car I will become a Honda car owner for life!!!




Love it

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

I absolutely love this car. I have owned a 91 and a 00 model Accord. Nobody can beat the reliabilty. It is smoothe and stylish as well as comfortable and roomy! THe stereo sound is awesome!




My first accord

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

I traded in my 2002 Toyota Corrolla for this accord. I love it. Much more comfort, features and overall a much better vehicle. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a quite and reliable car.
