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


Review

I bought the new from the dealer but did not buy extended warranty since I bought the Honda. The power steering was replaced at 30K miles and now the automatic transmission needs to be replaced at 45K miles. The dealer quoted $4000 for new transmission. Fuel Pump relay was replaced as part of the recall. This has been a real disappointment and this is my last Honda ever.


Best Features

None.


Worst Features

Warranty of 3 yr / 36000 miles is very bad. Should be at least 5 year 60K miles.

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


Review

My wife and I were seeking something to drive together (comfortably) on longer trips. After looking around a little we found the Accord. This car has been amazing. A nice, smooth and quiet ride in a reliable vehicle is what we were looking for and is what we got. We used to dread packing things into the old car in order to take a day trip. Now we look forward to it.


Best Features

Smooth ride, handles well, great looks, love the XM radio!


Worst Features

Was a little pricey compared to other models. We compared it to the Ford 500 for example. But does hold its value.

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


Review

Bought the 2005 4Dr LX automatic new. My wife used it as a work vehicle for four years and it was bulletproof. Similar to other reviews, the brakes are the Achilles heel, had the rotors resurfaced twice so far. After the 60000 mile service, rear brakes replaced and new pads. Now no problems. Only replaced the battery and have done normal maintenance up to this point (76000 miles). Interior is simple laid out and the seat cloth ages well. Four cylinder has plenty of power and we average about 25mph in mixed driving, 32 on the highway. Very pleased with this car. So pleased that we bought another Honda product, Acura TL used this month.


Best Features

Engine power and handling.


Worst Features

Better brakes, better stock radio.

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


Review

Purchased my 05 Accord Ex with 60k and it now has 105k. Routine Maint with the an O2 sensor at about 98k. Very comfortable, nice styling, heated seats are great, dual climate control and front, side and rear airbags. Only complaint is the road noise on the highway. Great tire wear, and the exterior looks perfect- even at 105k. 4 cyl is not sluggish and keeps up fine.


Best Features

Leather, heated seats, dual climate control. No timing belt on 4 cyl.


Worst Features

Road Noise on Highway- power window switch broken on rear window.

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


Review

I bought my Accord new and am still enjoying it. The car has aged gracefully and still looks great with zero mechanical problems. Powerwise, the 240 hp V6 is smooth and strong. Fuel economy is a little disappointing at 19 mpg city, but at least it uses regular. I like the ride just fine, but the handling is a little tepid. I think the biggest problem is the terrible stock tires that are hard as a rock and downright dangerous in the rain. The seats are not the greatest, but not terrible; interior materials are first rate. The 5 spd automatic is superb-- best I have driven. Resale value is phenomenal.


Best Features

Strong engine, great transmission, first rate interior build quality, good ride, stellar resale, nice styling-- car still looks good


Worst Features

Awful OEM fuel economy tires-- unfortunately they'll last forever as hard as they are, mediocre seats, so- so handling-- would be better with different tires, weak headlights
