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

Review

Car looks great in coupe form. Would recommend to get the stick, as the automatic feels quite detuned. There is also a lag on acceleration, likely due to the VEM. 2008 models have many problem areas; rear brake premature wear at 20,000, improperly installed headlights and taillights causing paint chipping around the lights. Seats are too firm and leather is quite "hard" in character and feel. Lots of room, especially for the driver and passenger. Radio works great. Gas mileage not quite as good as advertised. Quality does not seem to be up to par as previous Hondas. Resale value for the V6 is unacceptably low. Rear window should have a rear wiper.

Best Features

Design, black color, roominess, layout of instrument panel in general, although unnecessarily too many buttons

Worst Features

Should have blue tooth phone without navigation upgrade, NO VEM, engine should be tuned to match stick version, better quality and fit and finish, softer seats with better quality leather, better resale value, better acceleration, sport shifting in automatic mode as even the most basic cars have now
