Mostly Accolades for the Accord Coupe
By Happy Honda Owner on
2004 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Overall this is a fabulous car. I am very pleased with it and would lease one again. Visibility is an issue with this vehicle. The frame to the left and right of the front windshield is rather wide & it impairs visibility especially when converging upon 4-way stops with cars approaching to left or right at the same speed. They can totally be hidden from view as can pedestrians. Over the shoulder visibility is also somewhat limited and extra time is needed to double- check blind spots.
I'm rather pleased with getting an average city/hwy mileage of 28mpg along with decent acceleration abilities. The 6-disc CD changer and car stereo are decent, as is the electric adjustable seat height. Leg room is good. The moon roof is thoroughly enjoyed. Reliability is excellent.
The sunglass holder pops down unexpectedly & there have been a few dashboard squeaks up at the passenger front airbags area. Visibility issues, explained above. ALL controls need backlighting on the steering wheel & doors--difficult to locate at night. Window up/down icon confusing to passengers.
