2008 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Don't buy this car if you want good gas mileage. I have a V-6 with Variable Cylinder Management which is supposed to let the car run on 3,4 or 6 cylinders, as needed, to improve mileage. I make a point of running in the "ECO" mode (which is car's indicator of using <6 cylinders) more often than not and drive 1/2 freeway without stop-n-go traffic, and 1/2 city on each tank - I only get 20 mpg. My BMW 530i got better mileage.


Favorite Features

Driver's seat adjusts well for tall driver. Plenty of interior room.


Suggested Improvements

Improve gas mileage. Need air/heat vents in rear. Sun visor doesn't go all the way across to adequately block sun.

2008 Honda Accord Sedan LX-P 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first Honda. I had an old Camry and i love this new car. It is fun to drive, I love the color, it has great features, the sound system is nice, the power is perfect and the gas mileage is great!


Favorite Features

Look from front, power, interior space.


Suggested Improvements

Auto lights, sound system could be better, trunk space, look from back should resemble the 2008 Maxima-sporty!

2008 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Features, quality, reliability, and performance, at a price no other car maker can touch. That is why so many people keep buying Hondas, and the 2008 Accord continues that tradition. This is a very good car.


Favorite Features

Build quality. Styling. Gas mileage. Seats (great lumbar support).


Suggested Improvements

Move ignition from steering column to dash. Trunk liner had strong odor, but was able to remove it with one washing.

2008 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned two Camrys and two Avalons and all were great cars. Never considered an Accord because they were smaller. However, 2008 Accord is bigger so I took a look. After a test drive, I was sold. The car is very comfortable, the steering is tight and precise. Similar to what you'd find in a higher priced sports sedan. The navigation system and bluetooth are great and easy to use. Between the AM-FM and XM radio, the 6 disc changer and MP3 plug- in, I have "entertainment overload". On top of this, I'm averaging 34 mpg highway. The only complaint is that there is a pronounced road noise on rough roads. Overall, best car ever. If you're thinking of buying one, just do it.


Favorite Features

Navigation system, entertainment systems, steering and over quality of the car.


Suggested Improvements

Memory drivers seat, reduce the road noise.
