2013 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Traded in a 99 Chevy Malibu for this (leased) car, and I wish I had the Chevy back.
Terribly rough ride, extremely shaky and loud over the tiniest bumps.
Potholes literally shake you to the point where you think the car will far apart!
Even the AC in the 99 Chevy was better.
Any car I've ever driven or rode in has a smoother ride.
It's because with the 2013 models they dropped the wishbone suspension to save money.
I don't believe they tested the suspension, it's terrible, extremely unpleasant.
Not what you'd expect from a 'high-end' Accord.
Also, the car has started making shaking noises when I hit bumps, it's pretty disturbing for a new car.
AVOID THIS CAR !
The V6 engine is quite powerful, and it seems solidly build.
Like the shape of the car.
Lights are not bright enough, and they hang too low.
You can barely see what's in front of you at night.
One of the best cars I have ever owned, cant believe people are having problems. Cant say enough about the gas mileage I'm getting 26.6 MPG city, have not done a
hwy test as yet.
have just under 6000 miles and enjoy driving this car.
My 2013 Honda Accord w/CVT has serious issues.
Over the last three months I started experiencing abnormal hesitation while trying to accelerate from a standstill position. I have had to depress the accelerator all the way down to board for several seconds (5 - 8 seconds) before the car would jerkingly jump into proper gear to move forward.
The dealership changed a kit on it at least twice which initially seemed to have corrected the problem but after about a week or two the problem is recurring.
Then on June 14 an addt'l problem occurred where the car started a quick forward jerking motion at 40mph. Honda knows the issue but keeps denying the problem exists as they cannot replicate.
The buyer is not responsible for the manufacturers malfunction so Honda should swiftly fix the existing problem and not try to sweep it under the carpet because their techs cant seem to find or duplicate the issue on their computers.
1. offer the client a loaner of at least the same size while their car is being worked on
2. Get your client into a new car without them having to foot the expense after they've repeatedly & unsuccesfully tried to have the dealership fix it.
3. Buy the car back from the client for cash at the current market value allowing them to pay off their loan and use the remaining cash to purchase another car.
Extremely happy with my 2013 Accord Sport.
Received around 26 miles per gallon for the first 9,000 miles and then over the next 1,000 miles, it jumped to around 30.
Now broken in, it feels quicker and is becoming more fun to drive. The build quality is rock solid, not even the slightest rattle from anywhere. Sport mode is fun on the highway for zipping around people.
Seats are comfortable. The interior is attractive and all the materials you touch are high quality.
Love the leather trim on the doors, wheel, and armrest.
Miss a sunroof and push start but can't complain because the price was resonable.
Everything just feels solid and I could see myself driving it for 200,000 miles!
Build quality is fantastic!
Leather trim details on Sport version.
Great looking rims.
Nice interior design.
Ipod and bluetooth.
Comfortable for entire family.
Have a sunroof option on the sport model or make it standard.
It would be worth an extra $1,000.
Make the push button start standard.
After 9,000 miles and 11 months of ownership, here are my comments. DO NOT get the remote starter. It is a royal PIA on the EX model with push button start. When you remote start the vehicle and get in it, the engine automatically stalls and you have to restart the engine. For every remote start you have to restart the engine. Gee Honda, great for your starter and battery. Real poor design. I would remove the remote start system but it would cost ME money to do it! Also, you cannot exit a running vehicle and try to lock it to run an errand, it won't let you!
The stereo if horrible. The AM is twice as loud as the FM. Very poor quality stereo.
Sunroof is great. Backup camera is great as is the right turn signal camera. Paint quality seems great so far.
Needs a much better stereo. A left turn camera view would have been nice too. A revamped remoter starter system that doesn't stall the car when you get into it and one that lets you leave the engine running and lock the door. Better engine road spray protection. After a New England winter my black engine has white salt spray all over it!! Get rid of the Honda logo and warning on the display screen on start-up. Probably the last car I will buy so I guess I am stuck with it. Almost traded it in for another Nissan Altima. Also, get rid of that annoying ding dong that starts your television ads for HONDA, that's almost reason enough to get rid of the vehicle.
