  • No other sedan puts together all the elements of a family car as well as the 2005 Honda Accord.

  • What's New for 2005

    Honda takes a bold leap for 2005 with the introduction of the Hybrid Accord. Rather than add a hybrid motor to its four-cylinder, Honda bolts its third-generation IMA system to the Accord's already-potent V6. In one fell swoop the Accord hybrid has become the class leader in fuel economy (30 city, 38 highway) and power (255 horsepower). Other changes for the 2005 Honda Accord this year include new wheel cover designs for the LX and EX trims, a new coin pocket design, illuminated steering wheel controls and improved rear styling in sedans with redesigned taillamps. In addition, front-seat side airbags and full-length head curtain airbags are now available on all trim levels all the way down to the base DX model.

Vehicle: 2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

I have owned quite a few cars and until now, with the exception of a VW beetle in the 70's (forgive me; it was the time) I had always bought American made, and always had issues before long. When my son was eighteen and bought his first car, he bought a four door, four cylinder Accord. While nice looking, reliable and easy on insurance esp with a teenager at the wheel, it didn't seem to have that extra kick. So last year when I needed to decide something about a vehicle, I saw an ad for the 2dr coupe and well, it is sitting in my garage now. Black with black leather and maxed out with the 6 cylinder engine, I haven't had so much fun driving ever. I LOVE THIS CAR. and so will you.




V6 6spd is lots of

Vehicle: 2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

The V6 Accord 6 speed is the best Honda ever! The power from this car just keeps pulling you back into your seat. The car is wonderful to drive and has a beautiful fit and finish both inside and out. I lack the ability to articulate just how much I really love this car!




I love it

Vehicle: 2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

After years of owing Hondas I strayed to American cars because of their lower price and promise of good performance. Boy what a dissapointment. Came back with a EX V6 6sp coupe with full aero ground affects kit. It's a much better looking car with the Aero kit. The car is responsive and fun to drive, it loves to go to red line with a smooth pur, never sounding strainend and yet it is frugle on gas when not driven hard. This is a car I will keep for a very long time. Best car I have ever owned.
