My brand new Honda windows started to rattle every morning in one place, then rattle another place in the evening from the 2 week that I brought it home. I bought the car into the shop to have it repair 4 times, but each time, there was no success, in addition, the dash board started to rattle, then something in my visor started to rattle, and they had to change out the visor and patten down the doors to stop the windows from rattling. In the end, it still rattles and they told me "it's the nature of the car". Over all, this is my first and last Honda. I have owned this car for about a year and will most definetly trade it in for another vehicle.
Interior and Exterior quality, seems like the rattling starts at the windows and then work it's way around the car.
I am very impressed with the power that the Accord 4-door Sedan Hybrid's V6 engine with 255hp has. Addtionally, the car handles so smoothly and is so quite it sometimes is hard to realize the motor's even running. I have gotten the gas mileage the EPA expects while on road trips, but slightly less while taking in-town trips.
The dashboard instruments are easy to see and most helpful.
I am rather large, so the seats could be a bit wider to accommodate large hips.

No surprises as it's an Accord. There is a reason why you see so many of these out there - great car for the price (well under MSRP). Don't recommend Ed Voyles Honda - they sold us a demo (4K miles) in which we found paperwork in the glovebox as we were leaving the lot that was for bodywork from an accident! ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE! Dealer made it right by offering us an identical brand new Accord for same price (under $21K) but what if that paperwork had not been in glove box? Great car, great 5-speed auto trans, nice interior. Gas mileage very good, and maintenance costs should be very low, but will NEVER return to this dealer - Ed Voyles Marietta.
Very well designed interior. Comfortable seats, and the 5-speed auto is never caught in the wrong gear (do you hear that, VW??)
This high end hybrid has met and exceeded my expectations so far. It did require me to change my driving habits to meet and exceed the EPA fuel economy ratings. I have learned to keep my eye on the average miles per gallon read out to adjust my foot on the pedal. So far after 90 days, I get 29+ around town and at least 37 on the highway.
Interior appointments are great and the navigation system is fun to use. May average for around town and highway is currently about 35 mpg. I hope I can keep it up. The satellite radio is fun as well.
Auto headlights and auto door locks would be welcome additions
