Not what it used to be.....

2011 Honda Accord EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I have owned Honda's in the past, my first car was an Accord (1992).
So when I needed to purchase a reliable car, I went back to the Accord.
How times have changed.
The first thing I noticed is the build quality has gone down hill (cheap plastics, rattles in strange places etc).
I had to replace my "battery" at 15K miles (what they consider a battery) and have just replaced the REAR brake pads and rotors at 29K miles.
To me, it seems like Honda has started cheaping out.
This will be my last Honda, until they start putting some quality back into their vehicles.
Potent 4cyl engine, exterior style.
Put a bigger OEM battery in (400 CCA?
Really?), put longer lasting brakes on the car, take the word "Premium" off the stereo (I hardly consider that premium), figure out and fix the strange rattles.
