2009 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is the 2nd Accord I've owned. The first was bought new in 1993. Drove it for 15 years and never missed a beat. Fantastic car. But the 2009 has been a huge disappointment. Here's a laundry list of it's shortcomings:
Rear brakes have been replaced twice. (97000 miles on car) 1st time under warranty (partially) 2nd time on me. rotors pads and calipers.
Rear deck rattles along with various rattles from the dash.
Carpet on passenger side won't stay put.
Keyfobs (yes both) are inoperable.
At 90,000 it began burning oil. Now burns a quart of oil every 1500-1700 miles, but Honda says that's normal (BS).
Road noise is rather high.
Fan for the heater/AC is squeaky on low. So it's high or tear your hair out with aggravation.
Drivers seat is good for about an hour of driving before back ache sets in.

I kept the car cause it was paid for, but the oil burning is the final straw for me. Getting rid of it soon. Won't ever get another Honda.

Review

For this model, Honda reduced the size of the rear brake calipers. As a result, you'll need new rear disc brake pads every 30,000 miles. I still have 70% of the original pads left on the front pads. This issue was subject of a class action suit. After litigating, Honda did not address the problem. You'll be buying lots of rear brake pads with this car.

Additionally, the rear brakes don't release the brake dust. It just accumulates on the pads and makes for a nasty grumbling sound when you hit the brakes most days. It's annoying and it contributes to uneven rotor wear. This means more trips to the brake shop.

The seats in this car are pretty basic. Fabric covered foam seats that aren't the best for long drives. Okay for short trips - bad for a long road trip.

Fuel economy, for such a large car, is pretty good. High 20s for most driving - higher on the highways lower in the city. Winter formulated fuel (here in Chicago) will lower MPG by 3-4 MPG.

It's spacious. I've hauled a ton of things in it.

visibility is really good

My kids won't drive it - it's too much a dad-car. But they did use it to move into college!

Review

I bought my 2009 Honda Accord used with approx 18,000 miles on it. I love it!!
The only issue I have is that I have had to replace the 2 door lock actuators on the driver's side. Now the back passenger actuator is going. I'm going to wait until the front passenger actuator goes so I can replace them at the same time. It seems that's an issue of the part. Otherwise LOVE my Honda!!!
