2006 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought my car new in November of 2005. I drive over 33,000 miles a year (yes I know I am not carbon friendly). Anyway this car has been amazing. Great for the everyday commute and the vacation getaway. I live in the mountains and work in L.A. so most winters I have to run on chains 30-40 minutes each morning and each evening during the winter. Other cars and 4 wheel drive trucks have gotten stuck or crashed but NOT my Honda.
In the 347,000 miles I have had very little trouble.
I have replaced:
right rear wheel bearing (once)
one electric fan motor
one air conditioning High pressure valve
At the 310,000 mile mark she started using a little oil. Now at 347,000 I need to add 1 to 1.5 quarts of oil in between oil changes.
I still get 30 mpg and everything- radio, gauges, ac and heater, heated seats still work perfectly. I just looked at new cars and because of there price I am sticking with this one. My mechanic has said "this car rides better than most of the 100,000 mile cars he works on" and because I park underground and clay and wax the car regularly the paint is still in amazing shape.
Great Great Car
Thank You Honda!!

Over the years I have had many experiences of getting in a car only to find it doesn't start or that there is to be some surprise down the road as I drive - surprises that are inconvenient and costly, specifically, broken parts plus labor. This car has lasted the test of time. I get it in and it always starts. I have maintained it very well. It has 305,000 miles and is still going strong with no major repairs except a new water pump. I hope to go beyond 400,000 miles and believe it will do so. It doesn't have the power it used to but I am gentle with it. Best car I have ever owned. I will NEVER own another GM product again (our family's other two cars).
I have owned 2 honda accords the current one is a 2006 six cylinder. My wife loves it she feels very safe driving it. She got rear ended in our first honda and walked away with out a scratch. I was totally impressed by that. Jim M
We bought this car in 2008 with 15k, it currently has 120k. It has been a fantastically reliable car. Other than normal maintenance the only thing I've had to repair was the starter. I do all my own work and it has been a very easy car to work on. Changing the timing belt, it has the easiest to read timing marks of any car I've worked on. It's those little things that you don't usually see that tell you it has had a lot of engineering put into it and it shows. I fully expect this car to last for another 120k easily.
v6 has great power. Very smooth transmission. Incredible reliability.
I'm 6'4" and there just isn't quite enough legroom to be perfectly comfortable, and the steering wheel doesn't telescope out far enough to get to as comfortable a position as I'd like.
