Look Carefully Before You Buy

2006 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Blinded by Honda reputation. Did not look as carfully as we should have. Seats are very hard. No lumbar adjustment. Brakes very touchy. Sheet metal is thin, almost dents by pushing on it. Paint quality not good (lots of orange peel). Not smooth, steering wheel and shifter vibrate at idle, worse when cold. Glass in windshield is poor quality, lots of distortion. It's an inexpensive car that will probably run great for a long time but it is clear that they needed to cut corners to keep the price down. In retrospect, something else would have been a better choice.
Good road car. Nice looking. Mechanicals seem very good. Good A/C.
