I purchased a 2009 Honda Accord in February 2010. My front left passenger wheel began to pop and I took it to the dealer only to find out my new car has a broken axle. The dealer informed me that this should never happen to a car this new. I am distraught. I have purchased several Hondas before and have never had this much difficulty with one. I am at a loss for words.
To have that axle fixed before me and my children are driving down the highway and something dreadful happens to us.
Some of these reviews are amusing. Did anyone actually test drive the Accord before buying it? This Accord is what it has always been - the sports sedan of work-a-day cars. This means it has a firm ride, quick, accurate steering, lots of road feel, a rev-happy engine and a slick shifting manual trans. Complaints about road noise, hard ride? Please. Listen, if you want a four-wheeled isolation chamber, buy a Buick. The Accord has grown up, but it still retains the qualities that have made its predecessors so beloved: a great DRIVING experience, quality, reliability and economy. My LX 5 spd is simple and fun to drive. The Accord is perfect if that's what you're looking for in a car.
Love the interior design. Plastics are high quality (better than Fusion, Camry, Malibu) and fit well. Great ride/handling balance. Excellent shift quality for the 5-spd. Lots of interior storage cubbies. Power windows down with the remote is a great feature. Exterior design is subtle, pleasing.
1979 called and it wants its single folding rear seat back. C'mon Honda, no 60/40 split? Seats are OK, but such aggressive lumbar support should include a way to adjust. The only "upscale" feature I miss is a trip computer w/ outside temp; this is a feature found on a lot of less expensive cars.
I had higher expectations from the Accord Lx Sedan. I've only had my vehicle for one week and the driving experience is awful.My 2004 Honda accord drove so much smoother and faster than this vehicle. I can feel every bump and crack in the road while driving, the acceleration of the vehicle is depressing....what was I thinking when I purchased this car. I should have went with the sportier accord. The newer vehicles are'nt made like the older models. I'm stuck with it now so....I guess my warranty will be my best friend.
