2011 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I just leased a 2011 EX-L after driving a Sonata. I should have stuck with the Sonata. I agree with many of the posts I have seen on the seats. They are horrible. Extremely hard and uncomfortable. I'm 5'7" so maybe may body just doesnt fit properly. I bought a $20 cushion from Autozone, and it made it a little better, however, even after a short ride my rear becomes almost numb. The lumbar is also a problem. Frankly, the car just seems a little too big. Nice ride overall and I like the 190hp 4 cyl. Terrible seats for almost a $27k vehicle.


Best Features

190HP engine, overall ride and quality.


Worst Features

Seats should be much more comfortable.

2011 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is a follow-up to my initial review. I now have 3,500 miles on my coupe and experienced the oil burning issue that I've noted in the comments of others re the VCM engine. My car burned a quart in 3,500 miles. Took it to the dealer. They called Honda and Honda said that up to 1 quart of oil usage per 1,000 miles is within an acceptable range. This is my 4th Honda. The first 3 never experienced this problem. Had Honda disclosed to me that I should expect the VCM engine to use a quart of oil every 3,500 miles I wouldn't have bought the car. The dealer offered no solution other than for me to call Honda and repeat their effort. I'm not optimistic and am very unhappy with my purchase.


Best Features

Design, handling, power.


Worst Features

Fix the oil burning problem with the VCM technology or scrap it and solve the mileage problem with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

2011 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

My wife and I previously owned 1989 LX (165k+ miles) and 1998 LX V-6 with leather, wood and remote lock options (200k+ miles). Also have extensive driving experience with 1990-93 series, 1994-1997 series and a 2003 EX V-6. Have driven Camrys, Altimas and Sonatas. Purchased 2011 EX-L 4 cyl end of Feb. Already have 3500+ miles on it, with highway trips up to 3 hrs duration. Can tell that Honda's folks have been spending time in German cars. Firm European ride, firm and supportive seats (we like both) and acceptable road noise (it's an Accord!). Drives like smaller car...handles well, loves curves and steering is very direct. Brakes are comparable to '98's (very good).


Best Features

Love the interior styling (tan leather) and features {supportive seats with heaters, power passenger seat, adjustable armrest, Bluetooth, and stereo (great sound)}. Very roomy front and rear seating with large windows imparting overall sense of roominess. Surprising acceleration compared to '98 V-6 (also surprising based on road tests...including Edmond's). Not less than 23 mpg thus far, including commuting (we are 13 miles from our work sites in Charlotte, NC). Handling, steering and braking have been impressive...love driving it! Bulletproof resale value. Great deal from Triple A.


Worst Features

6 speed trans, 220 hp 4 cyl, more sound-deadening (all models) and a few more features (LX models)...so that the "professional" road testers and civilian Honda critics will quit carping. Nose could be shorter. Do not buy this car if you want a "dyna ride" floater like a Toyota or old Buick or squishy sofa seats like a Crown Vic...this is a practical "driver's car" with great resale value...not your father's Oldsmobile!

2011 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my 2011 Accord in November 2010 and in the beginning I loved everything about the car: handling, interior, exterior. But, after only 2200miles I started having vibrations in the steering wheel @ 65-70mph. Took the car for service and after few times back and forth in service they keep balancing the wheels and saying this is normal for Accord. Of course this is code for we can't fix your car and you just got stuck with a lemon. I know that many people have no issues with their Accords but if you want to roll the dice go ahead buy one.

2011 Honda Accord LX-P 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is my 3rd Honda, my last two I had for over 10 years each. I bought this because of the reliability and low maintence costs. I love the car, just wish the cabin was quieter. Not sure why people are complaining about the seats, they are comfortable. If you want a luxury car, then spend $30,000 or more for a car, or spend more time driving and checking out the car before you buy it. I do wish it came with a USB port, that should be standard these days.


Best Features

Traction control is the best, car handled great in the snow here in New England with all season tires. I love the size of the car, it's got so much room. I love that it has a timing chain now, no more replacing timing belts!


Worst Features

Cabin needs to be quieter and it can be noisy on rough roads. The seat material seems kind of cheap, not as "tough" as later models. Wish it had come standard with a USB port like other cars in it's class and wish my seat had more power options, but for the model I bought, it only came with a few, I had to go up a model to get the seat with all the bells in whistles. Wish the radio buttons were more compact, buttons are huge and spread out, I am short so I have to reach for the fartherst buttons.
