2004 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The car has a great, quiet ride. The V6 is smooth and powerful, and the gas mileage is very good, even with the V6. The radio controls are complicated. Honda dropped the ball on some items, considering the EX V6 is the top of the line. There are NO anti glare or heated mirrors. The Canadian version of the Accord has heated mirrors. Apparently someone at Honda doesn't think winters can be just as cold and snowy in the USA. The controls on the steering wheel are not lit, making them useless at night. The headlights do not turn on automatically. While these items may seem small, they are safety items so buyer beware.


Favorite Features

The radio kicks butt. Get the XM subcsription. You won't be sorry. Comfort is way up in the scale, with the quiet, predictable ride allowing you to look past the few flaws in the package.


Suggested Improvements

Anti glare mirrors. Steering wheel controls need lighting !.

Need to move the parking brake to the passenger side on the console.

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


Review

Honda hits another home run with the Accord EXL 4Cyl. I have had a '95 Acura Integra GSR and an '00 Accord EXL V6. The '04 Accord combines the best features of each the previous two. The Engine has the quiet, smoothness and power of the GSR. The interior is more luxurious much more quiet than my old Accord. The 5sp Manual is perfection. Safety and comfort Improvements make this car vastly superior to Toyota, VWs or Nissan. All this for the same price as 95 Integra.


Favorite Features

XM, transmission, engine, MPG, seats, ergonomics


Suggested Improvements

put homelink in EXL 4Cyl

2004 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

My Accord EX has been a really great car! Excellent handling, style and very reliable! The only negative is the rotten egg smell of the car's emissions. This smell is also evident on my mother's LX, as well. Compared to other car's at the same price point, the Accord can't be beat!


Favorite Features

6 disc CD changer, sunroof, and steering wheel controls.


Suggested Improvements

The rotten egg emissions smell, 4- cylinder is sypical in the mountains...you have to really press the pedal to get it going.

2004 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Comfort, style and get up and go. That's what this car is all about. It didn't take long to make the decision to buy the Accord. With the recommendation to buy this car from my son, who is a big fan of Honda, I just wonder why I didn't get it sooner. Nothing else compares. Don't pass this car by. You'll be sorry if you do.


Favorite Features

Everything. The 6-disk changer, the rear seat fold down, too many to list. Just one wonderful car.


Suggested Improvements

There's only one thing that I would change: having a full size spare tire. But then again, everyone is using "donuts" these days.
