Previous to this 2006 Honda Accord I owned a new 2000 Accord EX 4 cyl. for 6 years. After 5 transmissions and numerous other mechanical problems I was very anti Honda. I shopped around for months determined not to buy another Honda. I test drove everything in it's class and I was not impressed with anything. I went to a Honda dealership and drove the 2006 Accord and fell in love with it. I've had it 2 months now and my only complaints are that the exterior paint chips very easy and the car rolls a little when you go from park to drive. The gas mileage is not bad for a 6 cyl. I get about 300 miles for a tank of gas. Overall, I am very happy with this car and would recommend it.
Pickup, handling, and road response, multiple seat adjustments, audio, dual temperature controls, roomy, dual exaust and spoiler option to make car very sporty.
Better paint quality - paint chips easily and rust issues, covered cup holders in center console, full size spare tire, stiffer brakes.
I have nearly 600 miles on my 2006 HAH with Nav and its been very impressive. I averaged 31.4 MPG on a 275 mi. R/T and the vehicle performance was astonishing. The ride quality was very good, acceleration was surprisingly excellent and the Navigational system was intuitive, very useful and user friendly. Honda should have included an iPod interface and passenger side automatically adjustable seat with lumbar support. The "fit and finish" of this vehicle was flawless.This is definitely a car to enjoy and feel good about!
Acceleration, luxurious interior, and navigational system.
IPod interface and fully adjustable passenger side seat with lumbar support.
2006 Honda Accord LX Special Edition 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I love my new Accord. The Special Edition package has enough feature for me. No need to go overboard with the EX. I have been driving Hondas all my life, so my review might be a little biased. 88 Accord, 90 Civic, 92 Accord, and a 2000 Civic. I test drove the competition before purchasing my Accord. None compared to the Accord when weighing features, reliability, value, and performance against price. The engine is amazing for a 4 cylinder. Plenty of power. I like out running all the "punks" in thier tuner cars. The 5 speed automatic is so smooth. Drops gears fast for brisk acceleration. No regrets.
Engine power, smooth transmission, 4 wheel disc brakes, steering wheel audio controls, reliabilty, pickup, safety features, interior room, gas mileage, and Royal Blue Pearl.
No real complaints. I would like to see HFP product for the sedan. Honda sells a nice body kit for the coupe. I would like to see something for the Sedan.
