Excellent commuter vehicle
By MSletten on
2006 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
If you want a fun, stylish commuter that's thrifty at the pump, this is your car. So far I've averaged 32 mpg (measured by me) despite having nearly 170 hp on tap--a magnificent engineering feat by Honda! My perception of 4 cyl engines is forever changed. This is a quiet, comfortable, fun, economical and FAST car. Don't get the 4 cyl engine for your teenager thinking it'll keep him/her out of trouble! The five-speed shifter is butter-smooth, and with a hyraulically-assisted clutch makes putting the 170 ponies on the ground an enjoyable endeavor. And for the icing; airbags all around-- head, side and front. I'm very pleased with this vehicle!
The security of front, head and side airbags. The performance, both power and economy. Honda's reputation for reliability.
This is the entry-level Accord--all suggested improvements are addressed in the up-scale models.
