Should Be But Isn't

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 w/Navigation 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've always owned a Honda except for a 6 mth period of a Nissan, and I can say this will be my last one. I bought the Honda in January of 2013. By 4/12/2013, I'm ready to return it. By February, the car developed rattles in the sunroof, front dash, back quarter panel, driver-side door, and center console. It has been in for these rattles 3 different times. Furthermore, the infotainment (audio/navi) system is the most unreliable software I've ever experienced. It constantly crashes, stops responding, sends extremely loud static. The UI is backwards and cumbersome. It is so version 1.0 it shouldn't have been released. I should have bought a Ford. Honda says an update is inprogress.

Vehicle

2013 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Wow, what a great car the new Accord is. I was so dissatisfied with the cheap feeling 2012 Civic I very quickly traded it in. Honda blew it with that car, but I'm happy to say I'm pleased with Honda again. The Accord is comfortable, get close to Civic gas mileage. Get the Accord by all means.

Do not buy a 2013 Honda Accord - too many problems
By reviewer24 on 04/08/13 12:46 PM (PDT)

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 w/Navigation 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I'm curious as to why people like it, since it is the worst, most unreliable, problem filled car Honda has ever made. I have 20 unreolved problems with my car with the NAV, audio, transmission, seats. The seat is curved like an airplane's seat, the headrest pokes you in the back of the head forcing your head in an unatural position. Honda customer relations are useless. The dealer does not believe the owners when complaining about the problems and even refuse to look at them more than once. Look for "2013 Honda Accord Radio problems" in you tube. Also, look at this thread: http://www.hondaaccordforum.com/forum/audio-visual-electronics-10/2013-accord-problems-nav-blutooth-51172/

Excessive wind noise.
By disappointed90 on 04/03/13 17:42 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2013 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I've never posted an online review but often refer to them. In fact I wouldn't have purchased a new Accord if not for the positive reviews from professionals and consumers alike. I am so disappointed in my 2013 Honda Accord EX Sedan I felt I must say something so others may benefit or at least be prepared. Before purchasing please do a web search for "2013 Accord wind noise". You'll find talk of TSB 13-010 and feedback from many people with complaints of excessive wind noise starting at 60 mph and especially 75 and above. For me it's an absolutely miserable driving experience. My dealer has been great but I've had it in 3 times in my first 5 weeks of ownership.

Brand New Sport CVT!

2013 Honda Accord Sport 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I purchased the 2013 Accord Sport in black last week. I chose the Sport model because I believe it looks nicer than a LX, and of course is roughly $2000 less than an EX. The base Accord comes with everything you need. Like many here, I have owned tons of makes including, SAAB, Audi, Honda, Buick, Chevy etc. The fit and finish on this Accord is really superb. I would not say it is in line with an Audi, but very close and much better than others. Each time I drive the car I find more and more features and driving the car is more fun each time as well. Also note: I actually like the looks of the 2013 Subaru Legacy Sport, but the Accord won on value. Also drove the Fusion and Altima.

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Problems

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 w/Navigation 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Dislikes Internal hard drive – Can only copy original music cds, you cannot copy any media files. This is terrible because most people purchase their music online so you do not have the original disc. The internal hard drive becomes useless. Navigation, when you set a destination and start driving the only way to change it is by voice command, which almost never understands what you say. You have to stop the car in order to change it manually. Imagine being on the highway and you have to get off just to set your destination. This also makes your co-pilot useless. 7” screen – Poor music information layout artist, song title and album are laid out in such a way that

Love the 6-speed ! Try one.

2013 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Locating a 6-spd LX was a frustrating experience. If you want one, be persistent, and check dealer inventories on line. I love the smooth manual and engine combination. Our Accord offers a nice balance of comfort, quiet, MPG, performance, and modest cost. The ride is jittery, but it might be a price we pay for its truly crisp handling. Such things as adjustable lumber support should not be held hostage to another 2 grand for a "package", such things as power seats, moonroofs, and a silly useless spoiler. A few ergonomic glitches, detailed below

Great Car - BAD Stereo
By knucklehead44 on 03/21/13 13:01 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2013 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Everything about the car is great...4 months already 10k miles no driving problems...but the Stereo has been a nightmare. From not changing stations to displaying or locking station display for the wrong FM/AM being played AM stations while on FM or XM or Pandora, etc. etc. . This radio is, well, crap. I changed phones, no impact. It is seemingly random how the stereo just does strange things. This needs to be addressed by Honda. One other things...the Front Collision Warning fails in cold weather...could be a huge safety issue.

Love It

Vehicle

2013 Honda Accord EX-L w/Navigation 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I just picked it up yesterday, so I have to wait to judge the reliability, but I love what I've seen so far. Drove Acura TSX, 2013 Altima, Rogue and CRV..this beats them all for features and value hands down. Very smooth ride..voice response system easy to learn...while interior not as luxurious as the Acura, the standard features are more numerous in the Accord. I will update this with actual MPG after a few tankfuls.
