Beware of Honda quality standard
By bigmistake on
2010 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
If you are considering 8th gen Honda Accord, do your research on what you are going to deal with. It is not the Accord that it used to be. Mine is Silver and its painting has zebra stripes all over it. Yet, Honda insists that it is normal and refuse to deal with the issue while none of the silver Accord owners and Dupon automotive painting rep I contacted think its normal. You will have to deal with all kind of creaking and rattling noises, in addition to ear-deafening noises from road, tire, wind and so on. Sub par braking performance. So so engine performance and so so fuel economy. Styling is nice but not worth it considering what you have to go through during your ownership.
roomy cabin. styling. handling
painting, noises, breaking perf. (at least make it better than 2000 Accord). low-end torque. smooth transmission. better quality speakers near side mirrors (no torturing devices there). glove box fitting. rear inner fender must cover enough to protect exhausts. shorter key. better rear cup holders.
