Swell Choice - better than a Toyota
By TexasEngineer on
2005 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Honda is the best choice in vehicles, I own (4) of them now. I own (3) 4-door Sedan Accords for the family, and wanted a Coupe for myself. The 4- cylinder is a great choice – as smooth and quiet as a sewing machine, with still with plenty of power for a car this size. Incredible mileage – 35 MPG on the highway, and 29-30 MPG to and from work. Transmission (5 speed auto) shifting is silky smooth, and engine speed at 60mph runs effortlessly at 1900 rpm’s.
Driver and passenger seating very comfortable. Lumbar support for driver very effective. Fit and finish are excellent throughout, and the optional spoiler adds an even sportier touch to an already smooth exterior.
Road/tire noise more pronounced than the Camry, and the ride is not quite as soft. The Honda coupe is the better choice for those seeking a comfortable ride and responsive handling however. The Toyota has that larger car, ‘land- barge’ ride coupe-seeking folks want to avoid.
