2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
After looking at the 2005 Honda Accord, I checked out the CTS Caddy, the Toyota Camry, Acura TSX and a few others. The Accord gave best bang for the buck! Great car. Got the EX with leather and Nav, and now wouldn't get another car without a Nav system. I love it! Love the voice control, which controls not only nav feature but radio, air conditioning, XM radio, etc. Even tells you the time! Smooth ride, excellent finish, overall just a joy to ride.
Navigation system, excellent A/C, tons of storage for everything from sunglasses to coins and bottles.
Only real feature I miss is speed controlled door locks. Otherwise, it's got just about everything I'd want.

Love the interior, and the navigation system is worth every penny. Brakes stop me on a dime. The acceleration is a little weak, especially going uphill, on account of the 4 cylinder engine. However, going with the V4 saved me a couple of grand, and more or less is just fine. This car is just really comfortable to drive. When I drove it home from the dealership, I didn't want to stop! Also, the XM radio is built in, which is nice, and the car also has voice command capability, which is fun to use and to show off!

The Accord tends to get slammed in competitors' ads for being 'boring.' Believe me, it's not. In fact, I was originally drawn to the Mazda6 for the sporty nature of the car, but I was wary of the car's unknown build quality and decided to go with a vehicle I knew would hold up over the long haul. I have not been disappointed. The Accord is surprisingly satisfying to drive - it holds a good line in corners, the gearbox is just a step below that in my old Miata, it's quiet, economical, reasonably quick, well-built, and the quality of the interior materials is top-notch. The front seats are exceptionally comfortable, and the power seat makes it easy to find a good driving position.
XM satellite radio, lighted cruise control and radio buttons on the steering wheel, LED instruments, heated leather seats, dual zone/automatic climate control, auto up/down driver's window, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, great seats, back seat room, Honda quality.
Memory buttons for power seats, for more than one driver; anti-glare coating on the radio display for when the sunroof is open.
