2005 Honda Accord Sedan Value Package 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This car has more performance and mpg than I thought possible. It really gets 37 mpg highway and 29 city and is the most responsive car I have ever driven. However I only have 3000 miles on it so all the complication necessary to get mileage and performance may yet bite me.


Favorite Features

engine stop at stop signs 3 cylinder cruising extreme acceleration when electric motor kicks in.


Suggested Improvements

the storage container in the center console is tricky to close

2005 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first Honda and I love it! For a little 4 banger, it has some get up and go. The ride is smooth and the seating is comfortable. XM radio is nice to have and the sound from the radio is pretty good coming from stock equipment. Handling is very responsive, but I do feel a little knock when turning once in a while.


Favorite Features

Dual Climate Control; leather heated seats; tinted windows; the interior lighting; steering wheel control of the radio; 8 cup holders; sunroof; and especially the gas milage!!!!!!!


Suggested Improvements

Autostick like the Acura and the 2006 Sonata. Road noise can be dampen.

2005 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

More solidly built, more rugged, larger, more confortable, and better performance than any other Accord and Camry that I have ever owned or driven in. Will buy no other brand in the future. Have driven since 1960!!! The new (American) Accord is a luxury car that provides the greatest value for the dollar on the highway.....PERIOD!!!!

2005 Honda Accord Sedan LX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Honda Accord is no doubt the best sedan on earth. When I was looking for a car, I researched several similar sedans and Honda Accord come out as a winner. Camary looks too sloppy, though its a nice car but the new design is way inferior.

2005 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is our 3rd Accord LX 4 cylinder (See similar reviews under 97 Accord and 2000 Accord Runs Foverer). 97' LX model has 209000 miles & still going strong with no major repairs, 2000 LX model has 73000 miles with no repairs. The new 2005 model finds an excellent middle ground between the 97', which runs and feels like a sports coupe / 2+2, and the 2000 which drives and feels more like a traditional 'family' sedan. I switched from Toyota after blowing the head gaskets in our 92' 3.0 liter V6 engine twice (@ 85K and 140K miles) due to an engine design defect which necessitated a complete engine rebuild. No more toyota's for this driver.


Favorite Features

Adjustable seat levels and steering column (up / down & front / back) Comfortable seats (front & rear), good sound system, Excellent engine / power / reliability / economy, Cool 'metalic' blue exterior color, ergonomic interior, air bags & ABS


Suggested Improvements

Dashboard Radio/Cd console should readily accept aftermarket head units and should have an input jack to plug external audio sources (MD, IPOD, ect.) into the car's audio system. Blind spots are larger than 97' & 00' models.
