2008 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Our 1998 Accord Coupe was a better car - didn't need a repair until 185k. This car has proven to be reliable with nearly 80k on it (first set of brakes had to be replaced at 35k but second set it still fine at 45k). Changing lanes on the left side is downright scary due to very poor visibility and acceleration is poor. I live in congested NJ and you have to gun it to merge onto the highways and the 4 cyl doesn't cut it. The paint quality is also poor. I get the car hand washed monthly but I have two rust spots already. I see older dark colored Accords with faded paint and I am concerned The plan is to trade it in just before 100k so I can avoid replacing the timing belt and tires.

Best Features

- So far, reliable and low maintenance - Sporty exterior

Worst Features

- Horrible head rests that dig into the back of my head. - Slow 4 cyl engine. My 1998 Accord 4 cyl had better acceleration. - Poor paint - chipping and peeling already. - Poor visibility.
