The perfect commuter & fun to drive. No problems and minimal maintenance (oil & filter, tires, brakes) in 70 K miles. Very reliable, great gas mileage: I average 30-32 MPG, 70% highway at 80 MPH. Decent performance with the 4 cylinder 5 speed combo, and fun to drive. Could not be happier!
No problems, period! Remote opens side windows, great for hot sunny California summers. Great gas mileage 30-32 MPG with a heavy foot on the gas (70% highway). Plenty of power, good acceleration & top speed (0-60 in 7 sec. Was still accelerating at 120 MPH when I backed off).
Why does the car lock itself when you close the trunk? Don't leave your keys in the car! Paint is a bit thin and easily chips.
Bought the 2005 Honda Accord about a week before Christmas in 2004. Ended up getting the car a little sooner than I wanted after someone pulled out in front of my Honda Civic. Anyway, it's the best car I've ever owned. If you give this car proper maintenance it will go! Has a very smooth ride especially on the open road. Even though it's a four cylinder it will run easily at 80 or 85mph. But I usually don't drive that fast. Gas mileage is supposed to be right around 31 to 35 mpg, but last summer took a round trip of 290 miles and wound up getting just over 39 mpg! Mind you I drove at or under 65. Good car, in future hope to buy another one.
Can't really single anything out. Pretty much like the whole car.
Wish they could do something about brake dust on the rims. That stuff is hard to clean off!
Minus normal wear and tear the car has held up perfect almost. Seem's to have a slight rattle from interior finish at highway speeds but besides that minus and misalighnment the car is great overall.Best overall car I have owned yet. Only the Eclipse of 98 was more fun to drive. I would buy this car again for their 2009 model possibly. The four cylinder has plenty of power you would believe it was a four.
Sunroof and seat warmers
Better fit and finish to interior hardware over time. Don't be Dodge
I purchased a new ’05 accord coupe lx in June 2005, and I expect this will be my last Honda. I have been quite disappointed with a car that has received such high regards from various auto critics. I am currently driving this lx with a blown stereo speaker and a vibrating engine that makes long drives utterly dreadful. The car would actually be decent transportation if something could be done about the refinement of the engine and mediocre stereo.
I just purchased the brand-spankin' new LX Special Edition Coupe model w/ standard transmission yesterday. It is a true pleasure to drive compared to my previous Honda Civic EX. I like it even better than my wife's 2003 1.8T Jetta despite the slightly less overall HP at my disposal. The interior has all the little tweaks to it that were missing or non-existent on my Civic, and I don't think I'll be longing for a different car when this lease is up. The Accord is an EXCELLENT car for the price, performance, features, and most importantly: impeccable quality.
-roominess of interior cabin -design and feel of the seats -overall exterior styling -the overall ride (suspension on this is great!)
-consistent interior lighting colors (primarily red w/ blue tach and other guage needles) would be nice
