Just bought our red Accord this week. Beautiful car; got a lot of compliments on how sporty it looks. Drives like a dream and the manual transmission shifts wonderfully. Bought it to replace a 99 Saab with a blown transmission. Thought about a new car, but figured we could get a better car used than new in our price range. We think we made a good choice.
smooth ride, sleek look
the brakes a little too grippy. prefer something a little softer, although I'm sure I'll learn to adjust. Also, small windows make for tricky visibility at times.
Bought the car new in '04. The a/c compressor turns on w/a nasty clunk (which makes a noise similar to a bad tranny). The doors and other interior parts rattle. The weather-stripping gets caught in the window when it goes down and makes a loud squeaking sound. Switching the hvac fan direction (blowing on feet to defrost, etc) makes a crackling/grinding noise. Of course the dealer says that there's nothing wrong the car. Called Honda and complained. Never heard a thing except that they sent me a survey to fill out, which I did and still never got a response.
Smooth rev-ing engine, slick manual 5- sp. Great in the snow. Lots of good cup- holders. Nice bright hi-beams. Overall a nicely engineered car.
Needs better build quality...my car anyway. Seats lack padding for my bony butt - which makes long trips uncomfortable.
I LOVE MY ACCORD. I AM A 6'2 350 POUND
MAN AND I LOVE MY HONDA ACCORD. WITH
THE ADJUSTABLE STEERRING WHEEL AND THE
POWER SEAT I HAVE FOUND THIS CAR TO BE
VERTY COMFORTABLE AND ALOT OF FUN TO
DRIVE. THE ONLY IMPROVEMENT I WOULD
MAKE IS MAKING THE CONSOLE BETWEEN THE
FRONT SEATS A LITTLE PLUSHER AND HIGHER
OR AT LEAST MAKE A ACCESSORY THAT WOULD
ACCOMPLISH THE SAME THING
V6 ENGINE IS REALLY QUICK AND
RESPONSIVE. I USED TO OWN A 5.0 MUSTANG
AND BELIEVE THIS CAR OUT PERFORMS THE
STANG 0-80 FOR SURE
THE ONLY IMPROVEMENT I WOULD MAKE IS
MAKING THE CONSOLE BETWEEN THE FRONT
SEAT A LITTLE PLUSHER AND HIGHER OR AT
LEAST MAKE A ACCESSORY THAT WOULD
ACCOMPLISH THE SAME THING. ALSO A
AADDITIONAL PLACE TO ADD A CELL PHONE
HOLDER WOULD BE NICE
