Great car! Big & nimble!
By Seattle on
Vehicle
2008 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Family outgrew our excellent Mazda3. Settled on 4cyl Accord EX-L manual transmission. Unbelievable fuel economy! Got 500 miles out of 1 tank. Who needs a hybrid when this thing gets 33-35 mpg on the hwy! Car is huge, yet drives 'smaller' than it is. Great steering, clutch & shifter. Better fit and finish than our 2004 Pilot by a long shot! No regrets so far! Rear brake issue was researched prior to purchase and has not been a problem (21,000 miles on the car). Car could use a 6th gear but the shifter action is sublime. I have owned several Hondas including 2 S2000's and this is the best one yet.
Favorite Features
Room! Road manners. Steering, clutch and shifter are perfect! Amazing fuel economy with decent power from 4 cylinders.Great fit and finish!
Suggested Improvements
Some 'overrun' on the drive-by-wire throttle that takes getting used to. A 6th gear on the manual transmission would be nice as it's too wide of gap between 4th and 5th gear. Some 'coarseness' and tire noise on worn concrete freeways. No Bluetooth or Homelink on a EX-L? Get real Honda!
