It's a pretty good car, but buyers beware of some strange features. The Sport edition has some weird thing on the steering wheel called a paddle shifter. It's there so you can get the feel of a stick shift on an automatic. But the problem is... you go to hit your blinker, and lo and behold you've just downshifted going like 80 miles an hour... really dangerous! The other weird feature is the driver's side rear view mirror. It has a second little mirror attached to it. This bends the image of the oncoming car. I'm driving down the interstate, and this car is coming up beside me, and to my surprise he cuts over into my lane and nearly sideswipes me, so I swerve. But that was only an illusion.
Lumbar support on the electronic seats. That's why I had to spend so much more to get the Sport edition. It should be standard of all Accords. It's standard on the Kia Optima. Incidentally, the Kia Optima gives you a lot more bang for your buck.
Discard the paddle shifter. Discard the psychedelic rear view mirror before someone gets killed. Make electronic seats and lumbar support standard on all Accords, and have it on
the passenger side too. I've owned it for 6 months and still can't turn the radio on. It's buried somewhere in the in-dash display. It makes you long for the antique knobs that made cars so much fun. Lower the price, or Optima and Sonata will leave you in the dust.
I have to say that my first time dealing with Honda was a real pleasant surprise.
I purchased the Honda Accord because I needed a
nice sedan after having a great Hyundai SUV that I worked to death. The quality and nice amenities that came with this basic model is amazing. No one else could give me the same bennies
Honda could or the same quality after checking out the competition. I also wanted something that depreciated less than the other brands. Only Toyota Camry was equal in the respect and after being in the Camry, I saw that the interior was inferior and the design a bit dated.
The 2013 Honda is fantastic and turns heads everywhere I go. As pretty as a BMW
I am 6'4" and this car is roomy enough for 4 of me in the front and back.
2013 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This review is for our 2013, Accord V-6 EX-L coupe.
We are third time accord owners, 1993 station wagon, a 2008 sedan and now our coupe.
We purchased a V-6 EX-L coupe in March 2013.
The Accord was purchased to replace our 2009 Infiniti G37S, and we are happy with the swap.
The Accord over a 6,000-mile period is averaging 30.6 mpg over a 50/50 mixed driving style.
Our longest trip yielded 34.6 mpg and we routinely achieve 34 mpg on the highway for trips.
I calculate our mileage by hand and compare it to the system on board, we have found for the life of the vehicle the onboard computer is usually off by about a one mpg.
Our in town drives usually yield 25 to 27 mpg.
The driving position is very comfortable and is one of the reasons we sold our G37, the drivers seat in the accord is excellent.
The Active noise reduction is very well done
The audio system (once recalled and updated) is powerful, clear however; I still do not get the two-screen idea.
The menu is slightly confusing initially and not quite as intuitive as the Infiniti or nearly as well as our F-150.
Even with the update applied to the radio, we still have issues that are repeatable with the iPhone attached to the USB port.
I think Honda still has a little work on the i-MID system.
13000 miles and going.
Interior a plus (leather and all the bells and whistles)
Software is lacking.
Audio has demonstrated software problems.
delay in the Wiper system has already malfunctioned.
Gas Mileage is amazing @ 36 average...sometimes 39.
Extreme delay in initial acceleration with CVT transmission-Would prefer the gears.
Overall a sharp looking car.
So far has proved to be reliable.
89 out of 100
Side Camera- great feature
CVT jerks under 10 mph.
Extreme Hesitation at initial acceleration
