Reliable and Efficient

Vehicle2007 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
ReviewPrevious owner of a 98 EX coupe with 183K trouble-free miles. I hated to sell it, but I needed 2 extra doors. The '07 fits like a glove, handles crisp and tight, and gets great gas mileage. Had to get used to a couple of things from my old Honda like the absence of the change drawer on the left, but there's one in the center in front of the shifter. The radio controls are a little more complex, but having basic volume and channel buttons on the steering wheel are great. An overall well-rounded and well-balanced car. Best of all, no more timing belt! (I think the timing chain was introduced in '03) With the suggested improvements listed below, this car would have no rival. Coming in '08?!
Best FeaturesHandling, fuel economy, overall ergonomics, and Honda quality.
Worst FeaturesReplace hood prop rod with hydraulic cylinders. Simpler radio controls,add MP3 jack,and a little larger glove box. Add rear air vents in back of console for rear passengers. 60/40 rear fold down seats instead of one- piece design. Replace old trunk hinges with externally mounted for more trunk space.
