Good all around car

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

Review

I put 1100 miles on this great car. It is so easy to drive, with all around visability for safety. Nice inside, with comfortable seats. But it rides like a buckboard. Over 50 MPH, it absorbs bumps well. Around where I live, most of the regular roads are at 45 MPH or less, and all full of patches and repaired cracks. Shock waves are transmitted sharply, and actually make me sea sick. So, I have to drive only on selected routes. The tire pressure is at spec. No rattles, solidly built with quality inisde and out.

Best Honda Yet
By pjac on 01/18/13 13:40 PM (PST)

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

Review

After owning three Civics, I decided to try an Accord. This is the best Honda yet. Wish I bought one earlier. The car is a fully loaded EX-L V6. I assumed that gas mileage would be around 25 MPG. Since I owned it (Nov 2012), it's ranging from 28 to 34 MPG. I drive about 50/50 Hwy/City in Long Island, NY. On a trip from LI to Newport, RI, I averaged 34.1 MPG. I use the ECON setting for about 90% or driving. For power the V6 in Non-ECON, the car can keep up with vehicles costing much more. It is a poor man's BMW, but worth every penny of it.

STILL Unhappy With Car

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

Review

Dislike this car more than ever. Posted earlier review, titled "buyer's remorse", and it just keeps getting worse. The radio sceeches and will not work at times, the floor mats are so cheap, driver's is showing wear at 3 mths, 1600 miles. Had to buy aftr mrket mats. Car rides rough, any small bump in the road beats you to death. I hate driving this car, it is the roughest and bounciest car I have ever driven. My Tacoma Prerunner w/hard suspnsion on unpaved rds is smoother. Daylite running lights Can Not be turned off when the car is running. If there was any way I could afford the thousands in loss, I would dump this pig. The list of what is wrong with this car keeps going.

Outstanding car for most part

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

Review

I had previous to this 2013 Accord Sport a 2006 BMW 525. There is no comparison between the two cars as the Accord handles much better and of course the build quality is incredible. Not to mention mileage and the superb 8" screen with bluetooth, etc. The value for the money is absolutely amazing. There are two complaints that are relatively minor given the overall package, but potential buyers should be aware of. First, the seats are hard and have poor lumbar support (no matter what you do with the lumbar adjustment). Second the CVT is 'peaky' when you drive it in the standard mode. In eco mode it lugs but actually feels better. In sport the rpms won't come down when cruising.

Tremendous Value...wish it handled like an Acura TL

2013 Honda Accord Touring V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Applies to the Touring Model, FULLY loaded: The bottom line is this: The value is nearly impossible to beat. Although the car ain't no Audi, if it had hydraulic steering, it could pass as an Acura TL hands-down and be priced as a $42,000 car--no joke. In fact, technologically, its interior is far superior to the Acura. If you are looking for a near-luxury, sporty family sedan under $35,000 that uses regular gasoline, then this is likely your car. You just have to make sure you can compromise with the very un-Honda-like electric steering. It's worth noting that the Altima is a serious competitor here, but the lack of rear-headroom and the lame sound system ruined it for me.

Poor gas mileage
By loyalhonda on 01/08/13 19:42 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

I have ~1,000 miles on my new car and am getting 19/20 mpg in the city instead of the 27mpg advertised. Contacted Honda of America and they will not open a case until the first maintenance check which I assume will be around 7500 miles. Do I have a lemon or have others experienced this problem? I otherwise really like this car and have a been a loyal honda owner for more than 20 years.

Awesome sporty family ride

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

Review

If you still think that a fun-to-drive car and a family sedan never go together, think again. Go to your Honda dealer, test drive this V6 accord, use the S on the gear shift, and enjoy !!!! Build is tight, looks are great inside and outside, the technology is a little confusing, but great once you figure it out, and overall, is a great car, Simply put, you CAN NOT go wrong with this car, it drives great, it looks great, and as soon as you drive it, you know you will have a long lasting car.

New LX CVT purchase - first impression review
By paathiker1 on 01/05/13 21:18 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

Previous car 2000 Accord LX. The value is huge with the features, for the money it was tough to beat. Great deal too, I purchased on 12/31/12 at invoice plus a $500 credit for using Honda Finance. My only frustration is that my 2000 6 speaker stereo sounded better than the 4 speaker unit in the 2013. Also the center console is smaller and does not have the upper tray, just less storage overall. The dash layout is fantastic, the climate controls are minimal in the space it occupies, and the i-Mid control in the LX is much easier to use compared to the dual screen arrangement in the EX-L and above.

New 2013 Honda Accord Sport Sedan
By rockamatic on 01/01/13 17:07 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

There's a few minor issues I have with this new car. The driver's side rear-view mirror has this silly feature where it bends the image. So when you're on the highway and a car is coming up in the lane to your left, it appears that they're turning into you. The first time I saw this I swerved and nearly drove off the road. The other thing is that the glove compartment door is very shiny. It reflects the light from the window, so you see constant flashing out of your right eye. Also your head is too close to A-pillar. Another thing, the newly designed car went way up in price. There are many comparable models such as the Kia Optima and the Hyundai Sonatoa, or even a Civic is a pretty nice ca

problem with radio or?
By cali4all on 12/31/12 09:47 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2013 Honda Accord EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl CVT)

Review

I like the car, think it is very comfortable, agree with other issues, center console lid should slide so can use as arm rest, but get use it and I am short. Anyways, having issues with the radio with static and have had all the presets disappear one time now (they did come back after a while). The issue acts like a short, went to the dealer and they said have another similar complaint, they said Honda says it is a software problem, wish they told me when I called an made and showed up for the service appt. The problem is not fixed, googled the issue. I didn't see anything about it. This is irritating. Asked if Honda would call me or if I had to call them again and told didn't know.
