My second Accord
By John Culver on
2008 Honda Accord EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
The 4 cyl. coupe is fun to drive, steers exactly where you aim it. The engine has very good pick up, especially from a start, and outstanding passing power from 30 mph up, gets 25 mpg. But the suspension is stiff, the car does not sway in tight turns, but you feel every bump. The interior is really noisy unless the road surface is smooth. The driver's seat is nice but restrictive, holds you in one place. The tilt steering lock is stiff and hard to set, sometimes it takes two hands to lock it in place. The radio sounds great, the air conditioning is excellent and the brakes are really positive. Overall a really nice car.
I like the pick up and smoothness of the transmission, the gas mileage and the suspension.
Needs more sound proofing. Needs to improve the tilt steering wheel lock.
