2006 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
The car is very reliable with great fuel economy for a midsize, but the finish out is cheap. Glove compartment drawer rattles and there is rattle from trunk lid. I've learned to live with it, instead of taking it into the shop. Driver door handle faux metal finish flaked off within the first 10,000 miles (replaced - no charge). The seat heaters only heat the seat and not the lumbar/lower back. Seats are not made for long trips (3+ hours) without a stretch break. Finish out is the biggest negative and almost enough to trading-in or sell an otherwise reliable vehicle.
I am not in the shop very much except for regular maintenance intervals. Excellent MPG average for midsize.
Fix grabby brakes, tires that don't match performance (occasional slippage from stand-still), modify trunk lid so that it stays up (when lifted) or doesn't drop on your head when there is semi-strong wind. Seats are not as comfortable as those found in Mercedes E-class or BMW 3-series that I've had
