I purchased a 2007 Honda Accord Coupe LX V6 based on Honda's reputation for reliability and the good looking coupe. It's a strong car, but have discovered quite a few issues: (1) at 300 miles on the odometer, something inside the dash started rattling loudly, (2) when driving slowly (5 - 10 mph), the automatic transmission keeps jerking with a noticeable thud up and down, (3) the suspension is very rigid and you can feel all the bumps, and (4) seats are a bit uncomfortable. The jerky transmission makes me a bit worried that it will fail in a couple years.
Sharp looking design, LED tail-lights, strong engine.
Iffy build quality (rattles), jerky transmission at slow speeds, rough bumpy suspension, uncomfortable seats, poor gas mileage.
