2006 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have owned this car for 3 years - highly dependable, reliable and comfortable. I use this car to commute in the brutal DC area traffic. Great acceleration (V6), braking and maneuverability. Gas mileage could be better - 22 city/28 hwy. As others have noted, there are occasional problems with the 3rd gear synch on the manual transmission, the car's only flaw. This is my 3rd Accord; great performance and reliability for the price!


Best Features

Leather seats, XM Radio for the long commute, sunroof, V6 performance, 6-speed manual transmission.


Worst Features

Fuel economy

2006 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this car brand new off of the lot back in Aug 2006. I really like this car, is comfortable and fun to drive. The stereo system gets some lame reviews but I find it to be pretty good compared to other cars. That being said watch out for the clutch and shifter. The shifter knob looks destroyed after only 3 yrs and the clutch is weak at best (See below) This is my third manual transmission car and have never experienced this kind of problem.


Best Features

I like the Navigation system and the Graphite interior.


Worst Features

Shifter knob deteriorates quickly. 3 yrs old and it is destroyed. Also the Clutch on this is junk! 3 gear sync out in less than 18k and again in 12k. 4th gear out in less than 40k. Honda is aware of the problem but dealers are reluctant to honor warranty. See technical bulletins

Review

Manual wakes this 6 up. Quick when pushed but I average 28 mpg mixed. Tires not wide enough for its guts, can spin the wheels through first 3 gears. Some road noise but tolerable. Not a quiet floater, good compromise for family car and fun. Disappointed they dropped the V6 6 speed sedan for new body style. There are a few of us with kids who like to play a little.


Best Features

6 speed, smooth V6, xm 202- Ron and Fez 12 noon


Worst Features

Tires! 215's need to be 255 50 17's at a minimum to give enough hook up for the guts with the 6 speed. More l leg room, foot rest to far from floorboard

Review

Great car, has an abundance of power especially with the manual.The car does everything more than well but nothing perfect. It is a jack of all trades that gets good gas mileage as well.


Best Features

Engine by far, it runs through the gears with purposeful thrust - the low weight flywheel allows the revs to bounce off redline in 1st if you don't pay attention.


Worst Features

The brakes warp very easily and the suspension is too soft for my tastes once you get past the initial firmness - it is superficial. Also the weather seals creaked along with the chassis - wasn't thrilled about this at all. Still worth every penny though

Review

I'm sick of reading the reviews that say "had the car 2 days, best car EVER". I've had this one 9 months and it is a great car. I don't buy BMWs or Mercedes or Audis -- just Hondas, so I'm not going to complain how this car doesn't compare to them. You want a Honda, then this is the car to buy. The mileage is decent but not Civic-like, but then it's a V6 not a 4 cylinder. Leather is comfortable and seats heat well. AC is great and it handles perfectly well (at least at the sane speeds I drive) so I can't help you if you want to drive at 90 mph+. But if you're just an "Average Joe" and just want reliable, decent, fairly priced vehicles, safe for the family, then this is the one to get


Best Features

One touch UP window and XM radio. The special wheels on the EX 6 speed are nicer than the "standard" ones.


Worst Features

This car is among the most boring looking out there. The color choices bore my 80 year old parents. How about some exciting design/colors for 08?
