Great, reliable, soccer-mom car

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Bought my '04 in '07 with 34k miles. After 4 years & 100,000 miles the car has certainly fulfilled it's mission very well. I originally evaluated this car against a BMW 3 or 5 series. I dearly wanted the latter but considered my budget & driving needs - I live in So Cal and would be making regular trips to Las Vegas for work. I envisioned myself in Baker with a broke-down Bimmer - calling in to work to say I can't make it due to car problems doesn't fly (I'm a pilot). I searched for and found a 4-cyl. Accord-EX with leather and a stick. The stick to give myself at least the illusion of driving a real car. The 4-cyl. model for fuel economy and better reported reliability than the 6.

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

This is my 3rd Honda. I have an '02 and there is no comparison to the '04. The interior is vastly improved and the seats are the most comfortable in this price range. All of my honda's have been exceptionally reliable and so far so has this one. This car is so well thought out that Honda gives you a little yellow spot light on the center console. It's perfect.




It sure beats my '90

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

With the driver seat and steering wheel adjustment options, it is easy to find a perfect fit for any driver. The only drawback is if another driver adjusts the positions of the seat and the steering wheel, it is hard to find that same perfect feel without a lot of trial and error. One of the options that I never thought I cared about was the ability to put the windows down from the keyless remote, yet I use this all the time when it is hot out. I love it, but the downside is that you have to start the car to put the windows back up. Two months after I purchased the Accord the sunglasses holder would not stay up, but the warranty process was extremely easy and they had it fixed in no time

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.
