2006 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
The 5-speed 4 cylinder is fun to drive. Good acceleration and handling for fwd. Reliability - exhaust shield rattled dealer fixed, outlets failed can't charge phone & gps at the same time unlike every other car I've owned. 43,000 miles computer failed and put me on the side of the road 125 miles from home. None of my GM cars have broke down on the side of the road with less than 200,000+ miles on them. Honda replace ECM under warranty. Lots of feathers, great comfort, pretty & tasteful styling. Quality and "impression" of quality outstanding, actual quality well below expectations. Wouldn't have the auto with the 4-banger.
fun to drive in city, good on long trips, sunroof, heated leather, a joy to down shift, good gas mileage average 32.5 mpg, headlights, styling, interior, that it gets compliments, would buy again
Get some actual quality control not just the hype and illusion of it. My GM cars 72 vette, 91 RS camaro, 99 Trans Am, 95 Grand Am - all were more reliable and broke down less often with far greater mileage. car has too much wind noise for 2006 more power six-speed stability control ipod interface
