Better than I expected!
By jwell000 on
2012 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The Accord, in my opinion, has always been a nice looking (albeit, not all that flashy) auto with known reliability.
All of my past automobiles have been American sports cars, luxury sedans, and trucks.
While shopping for a new vehicle, I wanted something that was safe and reliable while providing a modest yet stylish middle-class appearance to my clients.
I choose an Accord for practical reasons.
I knew instantly that I wanted a V6, leather, and a coupe.
I figured this would give me the creature comforts I desired in addition to enough horsepower to keep up with traffic.
Boy, was I wrong!
This car handles better and has more luxury appointments than many of the vehicles I've owned.
My favorite features... I love the integrated bluetooth - I am in the car a lot and on the phone for business.
I love the seats - they hold you in place on sharp turns, keep you warm as they're heated, and the memory functions are rather handy.
I'm quite shocked with the amount of cargo I can carry between the trunk and the fold-down seat.
For being a coupe, the back seat is impressive and extremely comfortable for an adult.
I'd like to see the door-mounted arm rest raised a little higher.
A pause button for the iPhone integration would be nice - sometimes I use my phone's GPS (I didn't realize Navigation was offered on a separate model of Accord upon purchase) and hearing music is annoying.
Floor mats don't feel all that "heavy duty".
