4th Honda, Seems Just Average Now
By avgjoe on
2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
My 4th Honda. Still a good car but not much better than fusion, malibu, sonata. Road noise IS noticeable. Less so with v6 b/c of extra sound insulation on v6 models but still too loud. I paid $500 for an aftermarket sound proof kit for the trunk. Big difference. VCM is not transparent but not intrusive, just drive the car and forget it. Seats are comfy in leather, not so much in cloth. Buttons on dash, not a problem. Isn't that part of the fun of a new car? Learning where everything is? Averaging 22-23 mpg in mixed driving. Handling is great, visibility is good.
Exterior design is sharp, get the the rear lip spoiler. Blue Tooth works well, xm radio, v6, auto headlights, glove box latch is closer to driver, stereo is decent more factory sound proofing would help, bali blue color.
More sound proofing and higher quality interior materials. Inside plastics scuff easily. Rear camera or back up sensor, outside temp gauge should be near the radio display, Build the car 7/8 size and upgrade materials. I know hondas and this one seems to be lacking in the quality department.
