2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I drive very little but wanted a solid
and safe car. The 2004 Honda Accord EX-L
(leather) has side, curtain air bags
which I wanted for added safety. After
testing the Mazda 6i (wasn't very
refined with 4 cyl. engine and
automatic, but great brakes, handling,
and ride) and the Toyota Camry LE (as
boring as taking a bus--oversoft
suspension and soft brake pedal feel),I
drove the Honda Accord and thought it
was clearly the best car among those I
Smooth, quiet, refined, comfortable,
good looking, reputation for quality. An
excellent car for the money.
More useful rub strips on the
side--they're too small and not on the
widest part of the doors where dings
will surely occur. There should be a
flat, wallet key to carry in the event
the regular key is lost.
