Performance AND economy: It's about time
By ezhift5 on
Vehicle
2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
The test drive showed the strong performance inherent to the 240 HP V-6 coupled to the 6M. A trip thru the desert (LA to Phoenix) showed the surprising fuel efficiency. After 3.5 years 60k miles (on the OEM Michelins yet), the reliability has been only challenged a few times. Two pass. window regulators replaced under factory warranty. Ditto for a CEL dealing with a coolant sensor. I like the 6M but feel that "in-out" vague friction point clutch should try for more BMW-type feel. Other than that... best car I've ever owned.
Favorite Features
Fuel efficiency + real hard acceleration potential just a tick away.
Suggested Improvements
Noise intrusion remains somewhat front and center. New tires with great rack noise ratings await later this month. I'm hoping.

..written more than two years ago........ An update would factor in the labor-intensive 105,000 service ($1113 - and that does not include Iridium spark plug replacement)........... Bottom line is that fuel efficiency remains high - in fact - remember the original spark plugs remain in place - the numbers are even better following retiming to factory specs following timing belt replacement. New Primacy MXV tires have replaced - at 68,500 miles - the OEM Michelin HX MXM4 rubber. Noise intrusion had lessened. Still the best car I've ever owned. A bargain at $23.4.
