Good Car, But Far from Perfect
By Marin Driver on
2011 Honda Accord LX-P 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
The 2011 Accord is rated at 34 mpg/highway. I'm averaging 27.5 for mostly highway driving. Unlike my 2003 Camry, there are no cargo hooks in the truck, and the trunk carpet is one-sided only. In contrast, the trunk carpet in my Camry is two-sided, with rubber on one side - a must have for carrying potting soil, bags of cement, etc. And unlike my Camry, the Accord lacks a tray for 1-gallon jugs of milk. The installation of cargo hooks and a cargo net in the Accord's truck requires rivets and a lot of work. Most people will have to pay the dealer, which is expensive. The cargo net is not as good as the Camry's, as it's not very deep, can't hold heavy loads, and fits fewer grocery bags.
5 star safety rating all around. The 2011 Camry is three stars.
Get rid of the large floor hump in the rear seat. The front seats are hard and uncomfortable. Honda needs to add standard cargo hooks and rubber-carpet floor mat to the truck. The truck cargo net accessory is expensive to install and not very functional.
