I've owned 17 cars in 30 years so I've driven a few. This is my 5th Honda and my last. I'm going elsewhere. Noisy, gutless, rattles. The brakes were fixed and reimbursed. OEM tires made it 28k miles. Cheap. Glovebox rattles. Cheap. Seats are uncomfortable and thin. Cheap. Cross members under parcel shelf in trunk rattle. Cheap. 5-speed AT pretty much gives up at 55 for power. Pull out to pass in the mountains and the best you get from there is 3rd gear so you may as well be dragging a log behind your car. Looks great. Mileage is okay. The noise! My word the noise! I can't wait to dump this car. 38k miles and it's the worst car I've owned, and I had a '73 Pinto Wagon!
Exterior looks. Sadly that is it! The rest of it is nothing more than scrap metal and cheap plastic.
Start over Honda. Invest in some quality again. Quit cutting corners and raising prices. Give the entry level 4 cylinder some guts. Fix the glove box rattle. Pad the seats for someone of normal size and weight, not a malnourished 6' tall 88 lb. model.
You may have heard of soundproofing... use it.
Tell your QC people to quit drinking on the job and evaluate the product. Get back to your roots and make them like you did in '86, which was the best car ever!
Oh, and you should probably be taking notes from Hyundai and Cadillac.
I'd be happy to be the subject of a commercial showing me handing the keys over to the dealer and driving away in my new CTS-V coupe.

Worst car I have ever owned. Bought this car new and it developed a rattle in the first month. They added insulation around the speakers. Six month check-up required new brakes which I had to pay full cost. I later learned Honda had a brake problem with this car. Before the car was two years old the interior lights "burned out". At two years old the "seat belt light" came on. The dealership did not notice or correct . At three years old they checked the seat belt light and decided the air bag switch was defective and needed to be replace for $500+, at our cost. The air bags had were disabled this entire time (safety feature not working). I bought the Accord for quality. It is not!
Fix the safety features.
This is not a safe family car or safe for a teenage driver.

I bought this car because Honda has such a good reputation. I was not impressed! The car had a terrible rattle where the rear window meets the back cheap plastic. I had to diagnose and fix the problem on my own, but never got the rattle to completely stop. The glove box also rattled. It drove me crazy. I would drive with the glove box open so that I did not have to hear the rattle. The interior is cheap- a lot of plastic. The dash is ugly, nothing to be desired. On the upside, I love the exterior look. However, I just sold this vehicle after owning it for only 5 months. I was so happy to get rid of it! I am now going to go with German engineering:) Oh, and the seats are very uncomfortable
Exterior look, cost
Interior- dash is ugly.
More comfortable seats and fix the rattling.
Maybe less cheap plastic would help the rattling.

The price was right,color fine,seats great,power and economy 24to31 looks great ,room ,super,but the tires didn't make it,one was deformed or out of round.Took dealer a long time and effort to get it right. next problem,the ft. brake rotors,out of round,honda replaced them,solved that problem. then the back rotors went out of round,I had to pay for the turning 100 bucks,that was bs honda. Have 42000 miles on car ,it is now debugged,smooth,fun to drive ,fine for long trips .It just took to long to get it right.
Rides fine,lots of room,great seats,economy 24 to 31,looks great,good in alltypes of weather.Vision fine,new michelin green tires a great improvement over origional pilot hxmxm4 tires.I like the set up that Honda employes for the time that the car needs serviced,it also is a joy to drive at night ,you can read all the guages.ect. they light up fine.The honda garage that I purchased car from ,auctually my last 4 accords
are on the ball.do what they can to keep
Too much road ,and tire noise,also hear too much wind racket.Had rattles in the gear shift area ,placed rubber o rings around shifter this helped.The sun roof rattles ,I need to address this.Cheaper cars have covers on their inside trunk lid ,this accords should have standRD ON THE EX SERIES.
