EX-L 6000 miles update (4cyl/5MT)
By Hannibal Mike on

Vehicle

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

Review

I traded my 1997 Eclipse Spyder GST convertible (turbo 4 cyl/5MT) for an Accord EX-L sedan (4 cyl/5MT) when I turned 60. Aside from missing the turbo's acceleration, I've preferred the Accord's better mileage, handling and comfort. I averaged 34-35 mpg after 6000 miles (~90% highway driving). Lowest mpg was 29 mpg (~50% local driving with A/C); highest mpg was 40 mpg (driving 60 mph w/o A/C on Midwest highways). This Accord is the only large car I found with upscale comfort/amenities and a good manual transmission. The manual transmission lets me control the car better and achieve higher mileage.

Favorite Features

1) Good mileage for a large car 2) Smooth-shifting manual transmission 3) Very comfortable driver seat with good lumbar support. 4) Sun roof

Suggested Improvements

1) Front passenger seat lumbar support 2) Split folding rear seat back 3) Improve radio/climate control ergonomics 4) LCD panel hard to read on sunny days 5) Add estimated mpg to trip computer
