2009 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

As a long time owner of Hondas and Acuras, this car has been a great disappointment. Within the first year of ownership we have had to take it in to the dealer 9 times for repairs (not including the scheduled maintenance). Seven of the nine times related to interior parts, including the driver side sun visor spontaneously falling off and dangling in front of the driver. Two of the repairs were on the brakes. Honda is involved in a class action law suit regarding the rear break issue (Google it). The front brakes also had to be replaced this is a separate known issue for which there is a service bulletin. Ask the dealer about the break issues before purchasing this vehicle, I wish I did.


Favorite Features

- Exterior looks good -Large back seat -Decent power for a four cylinder


Suggested Improvements

-Poor build quality compared to previous generation accord. I would suggest Honda refocuses on quality. -Dashboard layout is a little strange. I would prefer less of a symmetrical design in favor of a more intuitive design. -Get back to basics; build a reliable, well built fuel efficient car.

Review

I have had the car for a year now. Any complaints dealer fixed. No brake problems. Seats are uncomfortable. I bought some sheepskin covers which are real thick and it seem to help. Fluttering noise in air conditioner checked filter etc, road noise is a problem, someone mentioned better tires, dunlaps don't get it.

2009 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased this as my 4th Accord and may not buy another after it. Started out pleased, became disappointed quickly. Brakes have 2 speeds - slow and leave rubber on the road. Seat on this later and higher model adjusts less than my '99 did, not good for a short person. Rear window glass can be wavy, auto-adjust rear mirror doesn't adjust to rising/setting sun and can be blinding. Mileage is also disappointing. Paint is chipping all over the car and Honda has denied any problem.


Favorite Features

Heated seats are nice, comfortable ride on the highway.


Suggested Improvements

Shrink back to a smaller size with better mileage, make air conditioning more effective, allow seat angle adjustments so shorties can tilt forward more to be (or at least feel) up higher. Fix the paint job so finish doesn't chip down to bare metal from just plain normal use.
