2006 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I heard how great the Accord is from this website, from my experience that was wrong. My 06 Accord was the first new car I've ever purchased. I got the extended warranty, the xylon coating, and I check its vitals (oil, tire pressure, power steering, etc) weekly. I avoid rough, pot-holed, bumpy roads (and take it real slow when they can't be avoided) yet I have had soo many problems with this car. Ex.:In under 4 months my power steering started spazzing out. I had to take it in and explain to the technician (who just wanted to top off the fluid) that the reservoir shouldn't be virtually empty that quick (lots of effort went into getting them to properly inspect it).And there are more...
Get a team of mechanics that can actually fix problems. This summer I have taken in my car five times to get the same problem fixed. It works fine for a few days then the problem comes back It used to be that they made it slightly better than before, but after this last time its worse than ever.
