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


Review

I came to this from a 2001 Maxima SE. Have put 59k in 2 years on it. Only repair has been the back brakes at 32k. The cons: in same driving environments, only averages 27-29 mpg with a 4cyl, compared to the Maxima that got 26-28 w/6cyl. Thought the Accord would do better than that. Front seats are not very comfortable. Didn't notice in the short test drives, but daily driving 2-3 hours a day results in discomfort. Interior seems to suffer from louder road noise than the Maxima. Stereo is not bad. Wasn't thrilled with the center dash, but it's not horrible. The good: It does handle pretty well. When on 100% highway, I have gotten 32-35 mpg. I do like the body style of it.


Best Features

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


Review

I have 25,000 miles on it. I did just have the rear brake pads replaced and the rotors resurfaced, which 50% will be reimbursed by the class action suit. Other than that, no problems. Plenty of power with the V6, no issues with V6. Road noise isn't any more than when I test drove it (and is not bad). Seats are not any less comfortable than when I test drove it (and are not bad). Radio controls are not any more confusing now than when I test drove it. Materials in dashboard are not any cheaper looking now than when I test drove it.


Best Features

Power, handling, styling, interior space, trunk space, solid feel, high resale value


Worst Features

MP3 controls

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


Review

I purchased this car 8 months ago with 40K miles and it is great car. I have driven Accord 03, 06, and this one is 08 - all are good to perfect. I am not sure why some people are giving bad reviews. The last generation Accords use the same moving parts (engine (4 cylinders), transmission, etc.) as in 05, 06, 07. By doing by extensive research many people, that posted reviews here, have some interest in Detroit automakers (Ford, GM). Union may be? That is why the are bashing Honda here to make people to, at least, look at Ford Fusion or Malibu. No question, those cars are great inside BUT drive them for +60K and you will see the difference between Accord ad them. Enough said...


Best Features

Nothing as of now


Worst Features

Make it better looking, close to European style

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


Review

My 2nd Accord, but probably my last. Fuel economy better than I expected city 24 mpg and hwy 34 mpg. But the overall build quality of the car appears inferior to my previous 1998 Accord EXL (especially paint and leather). Currently have 60,000 miles on it. Also noticing rear brake issue and flickering headlights while a/c on. Despite having 10 speakers, still not the best sounding system. I don't think the car will last as long as my previous accord did and is still doing!


Best Features

Lots of interior space and large trunk, can easily fit 2 large suitcases and other stuff. Also, fuel economy pretty good. Interior dashboard lighting very nice.


Worst Features

Improved paint quality, easily chips and scratches. Flicker of headlights when a/c on should be fixed. Better quality of leather, mine is starting to crack on drivers side.

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


Review

This car is not comfortable the front seats are like sitting on a park bench, small, no padding and the leather is cheap. Cheap plastic interior with too many buttons on the ugly dash. Road noise is awful and the brakes are pathetic. Honda has a recall on this car and when i brought the car to the dealer they said the brakes on this thing were ok. V6 engine is a noisy winder when stepping on the pedal hard what a joke. I'm dumping this piece of overrated Honda and looking at the Ford Fusion or the Buick LaCrosse. Honda has taken there so called reliability and threw out the door with new generation Honda


Best Features

None will never buy a Honda again.


Worst Features

Anyone looking to buy this car will be sorry
