2004 accord coupe v6 6 mt
By Barry on
2004 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought my black on black, Accord coupe in 2008 with 49,000 mi. The 6 disc CD player, trim pieces over door, sun glass holder needed new spring, and emergency cable were replaced under warranty. One rear strut replaced after warranty. Car sticks to the road like glue during heavy rain storms. Power to burn. Hang onto the steering wheel, car torques like crazy in the first three gears with a great exhaust sound. The six speed is one slick shifter. Gas mileage continues to improve with age (90,000 mi) 35 mpg highway. Firm suspension, corners well. Great stereo. Love the heated seats and auto up and down driver window.
240 hp, six speed mt, acceleration, stiff suspension, cornering, stereo, great interior. Test drove BMW 228, Honda has more power and sweeter shifter than BMW, plus $20,000 less.
Better brakes. Not crazy about the bubble rear end. Had a 1998 accord coupe, v6, auto that had nicer lines. Biggest mistake Honda made was not putting a 6 mt with the V6 engine in 1998-2002 models. Now if Honda would only make a hard top convertible!
