2008 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great car but rear brakes went after one year! I called the dealer and they would not cover it. My mechanic could not believe the brakes had to be replaced. He actually bet me money it was not my brakes, he lost!


Favorite Features

Style


Suggested Improvements

Brakes! Also difficult to turn off the child locks. Still can't figure it out!

2008 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had my Accord for 7 months, just about 9,400 miles. I love it! I have had NO problems with it. I haven't had any back pain from the seats, maybe these people exceed the seat weight limit? My lights aren't flickering and there is no rattling. I don't think the engine is loud but that can be a matter of opinion. My basis for comparison were Hondas, Nissans and Toyotas all of which I have owned over the years.


Favorite Features

Well built interior and exterior design. Gas MPG good. Safety features are great.


Suggested Improvements

I can see why people may want a 60/40 split back seat, though I don't care.

Review

Seems to be more roomier than a cambry, but not as sharp looking. Rides with comfort and motor will pick up if you need it. I purchased this vehicle with a lot of research comparing. We got 32 mpg on the highway the next day after we purchase it. It has enough room for me, my wife and my 18 year old son to go on a short trip. I am 6 foot, 225 lbs and I rode in the back seat some and had enough room. I hope I can get a few more mpg after the car breaks in some. The only for sure complaint I have is the seats seems to hurt my back after I drove for a period of time, this may be because I am use to my silverado truck with leather bucket seats. A big person may want to think of this when shopping.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage even before the car is broken in good (32 mpg highway) then mixed city and highway (200 miles highway) and (200 miles in town and city) 26.7 mpg! Smooth ride and a family of 4 can go places.car looks pretty sharp inside I think even for being the bottom style


Suggested Improvements

Not sure about the seats comfort , I may be just getting old. Wished it had a direction compass device and temp.outside reading outside. But really overall; so far so good--glad I got it

Review

Traded in a a 2007 6 Cyl. SUV, wanted something with better gas mileage and something that had good resale value. Used edmunds and the dealership came in $800 under invoice. Not sure what invoice even means anymore. At first they said they couldn't go any lower than $75 over invoice but as I was about to walk away from the deal they lowered it.


Favorite Features

Love the 5 speed manual, handles like a sports car. Nice trim, and head turning design.


Suggested Improvements

Wish it had Alloy wheels XM radio

2008 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

follow up to earlier posting. Have the car 20 days now. About 350 miles mainly stop and go driving to and from work Put gas in the other day for the first time and averaged about 21.7 MPG not bad for breaking the car in and for the first 318 miles on the car. I expect it will go up. Otherwise love the car.

Review

This is my 3rd Accord lease and it's better than ever. Great ride , roomy interior, legendary Honda reliability. Some here have complained of poor gas mileage, but I've had mine almost two weeks, driven 300 miles so far in mostly city driving, and have a bit more than a quarter of a tank left. I should get close to 400 miles on a full tank in mostly stop and go traffic. Pretty good, I'd say.....

Review

I own an Acura TL as well so am evaluating based upon on this. BLUF: Superlative sedan; would not hesitate to purchase again. Positives: Eye- catching appeal; fit and finish exterior/interior; safety features laudable; audio system good esp w/XM radio; interior room spacious; 3.5L V6 scoots; sporty handling and acceleration good; sporty leather seats; highway gas mileage; appearance package worth having; no dealer service yet; Negatives: Tough negotiations w/6 Wash DC dealers; city gas mileage; road noise; no keyless memory link w/driver profiles; steering wheel quality and size; console storage tray; outside mirrors donít pivot downward when backing; It is a winner and a recommended buy.


Favorite Features

Sound system; driver power seat; Night Hawk black pearl color w/ivory leather finish; safety; interior room; expected outstanding reliability;


Suggested Improvements

Optional passenger side power seating; increase blue LED light; full trip computer; iPod data cable via audio system; upgraded wood grain steering wheel/shift knob; keyless memory link w/driver profiles; outside mirrors pivot downward when backing.

Review

Well, the '08 Accord (LX 4 cyl) is an awesome car. Honda delivers again. Except...its just ugly. The engine is the most refined in its class, maybe the world, the build quality is polished, and the transmission/chassis is superb. But it looks like something my grandma might buy if she wanted something "young and hip". Recently drove a new Malibu, and am hooked. Seriously considering a trade.


Favorite Features

The engine, the engine, the engine. And the tranny, and the suspension.


Suggested Improvements

Dear God, give it a sexy face. The Civic is pretty hot, so why screw up the Accord? The interior is a tad funky too.
