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


Review

Have had my Accord coupe for a week and it gets a thumbs-up thus far! Traded in my 99 Mustang GT convertible as I changed jobs and needed a more practical commuter car. This a good choice if (like me) you need an affordable and comfortable commuting vehicle but hate the idea of a boring boxy sedan. The Accord Coupe is stylish and sporty. Thought about the V6 but the 190-horsepower base engine has plenty of power for normal driving and passing.


Best Features

XM radio built-in. It's great! 28 mpg on 1st fill, mostly highway.


Worst Features

The seats are a little too firm for my taste. Would it have killed them to put in a little more padding?

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The 2008 Accord is the first Honda I've ever owned. This is one great automobile. the fit and finish is unmatched. not a single item needed post purchase service or attention. The engine and transmission is the smoothest unless compared with a vehicle costing $20k more. the variable cylinder management changes to 4 cyl when not under load, this helps with fuel mileage. I highly recommend the Honda Accord.


Best Features

Body Styling, transmission is smooth, acceleration great, stereo. There is nothing I don't like on this car.


Worst Features

this is a great car, maybe tighten up the suspension for a more "sporty" ride.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had a 2004 Acura TL and traded for a 2008 coupe and couldn't be happier. Looks great inside and out and I feel a real competitor to the Infiniti G37 at thousands less. Spend a lot of time on the road and the car is never boring to drive in city or highway. Great performance and handling make this a real Winner!


Best Features

Styling gets many compliments. Don't see many coupes coming and going on roads.


Worst Features

Auto dimming rear view mirror, memory seats, power passenger seat, blue tooth capable without nav.

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...


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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