2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought my Accord in the fall 2009. Have since put on about 5000 miles, the car currently has about 26000 miles on it. I must say that I am really impressed with the design of the coupe (not sure if they fell asleep designing the sedan). The coupe looks awesome and I get lots of complements. I have owned 4 Hondas and I must say that every time I got a new one, the build quality has gradually got worse. First, door seal came off, then glove box started to rattle, I am watching the rear brakes closely now as many complaints there, rear brakes at 35% but front at 75% interesting. Today I heard new center console rattle. Car vibrates @ 60-70 mph. What happened to Honda quality?! Looks is not all.


Favorite Features

I love the XM radio, seats are ok despite several complaints of others. The interior is awesome and the design is outstanding. Love the way the car drives except the vibration at higher speed. When road is smooth everything is fine, no rattles then. Stereo is solid as well. Performance is adequate.


Suggested Improvements

HID lights, shame on you Honda to design great looking head lights but then spoiling it all by halogen. Please improve the quality!!!

Review

I just got back from a 3000 mile road trip from California to Sandpoint Idaho. The Honda was very comfortable to drive and averaged 32.5 miles per gallon. I have the v6 - manual sticker said 25 hwy, 22 in town... I get 27 in town. This car is the best I have ever owned.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Beautiful car, got one of the first cars at the dealer when they came out. Very happy with the car enjoy the ride and performance. I am having early wear on the brake, shimmy at 60 mph with 20K miles on the car. Possible design issue, dealer reviewing. Mileage is disappointing.


Favorite Features

Stereo is great for a factory option, seats are comfortable


Suggested Improvements

MPG indicator or trip computer, brakes show signs of early ware, warranty does not match other models on the market.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

OK, compared to some cars, it may seem underpowered, but the reward comes at the fuel pump. Fun is still a standard feature with the Manual Transmission. Absolutely no regrets here. Got my Acura CL without the high price...


Favorite Features

XM radio, styling (coupe), Fit and finish.


Suggested Improvements

Full iPod integration, HID headlight availability. 6-speed trans availability with the I-4 engine. Even better sound insulation.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am a previous Acura TSX owner. Before that I had an 04 Honda accord coupe. I just knew when I got my TSX I was never going to get another Honda again, until i saw the 08 Accord coupe. Got it 11/07. I totally love it!! The new body style is off the hook!! I catch people looking to see what kind of car it is all the time. I had the chrome door handles installed to give it an extra kick as I did not want to pay the extra for the V-6. The inside is much bigger than the 04 coupe and the TSX. Totally stands out. Can't wait until the summer time to let the windows down and open the moonroof!! I love my new coupe!!!


Favorite Features

All in one key. Love the sound system. Chrome door handles.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. Bigger trunk.
