Just a headache
By brgls on
2005 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
This was my first import car, and I was not impressed at all. The reliability for the car is great, but small annoying things always go wrong. The driver seat started squeaking and making noises at 38000 miles and no dealership would help me unless I would buy a new $1200 seat. The interior makes bad noises over all the bumps and the I4 engine seems underpowered and noisy. The radio has static everywhere and the speakers are already blown out and I never turned the radio up past half way. The dealership also said this was normal. If you get a Honda, at least don't service one at a Honda dealership.
Steering wheel controls
Better driver seat design, better radio reception, better speakers, bigger engine, better quality of interior so it could hold up to more than 4 years of use, and better customer service at dealers
