2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Just bought 2004 EX with side curtain
airbags (N/A on the 2003 Accord EX with
cloth seats) for $22,999 out the door
with all fees included. We also looked
at a Camry SE and XLE, Hyundai Sonata.
The Camry was closest, the Sonata is
just a different class. The extra real
life 7-8mpg, the 60% after 5 years
resale value of the Honda sealed the
deal. If you are looking at a 2003,
look carefully at an 04. You get a new
model year for a small bump in price
and for us, the side curtain airbags
(plus regular side airbags) were key.
Ride is smooth and a bit more connected
to the road than Camry.
