Great car with some design issues
By ee2 on
2013 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
It has great power, gets decent gas millage, it is pretty comfortable to drive. A few minor changes are called for and one MAJOR one. The cup holders are right behind the stick shift, so as you shift, you are constantly hitting the cups/straws/tall water bottles. The windshield wipers on mine streak alot. At about 1000 miles I changed the rubber on my dime (OEM Honda). Made no difference.
The major issue is that the hands free bluetooth software seems to have been designed by an engineering school drop out. The text reading is almost incomprehensible. No point in it since it does not make driving safer if you can't understand it. Phone book features are terrible.
Back up camera, great gas millage (over 35 mpg on long trips), side camera. Honda brand historical reliability. My first Honda (1990 Prelude) got 250k miles. The 2001 Civic got 230k miles, now the Accord has some big shoes to fill.
Improve electronics so that bluetooth functions can actually be used. The text reading is terrible. The software is clunky to use and not intuitive at all.
The gas millage calculator (for the tank, not trip) does not function even though it is set to reset on refill. This should automatically calculate mpg for the tank. It does not. This is a well known issue. Honda could have fixed the software but opted not to. I got my car in July 2013, this issue was know in the first few months of the release of this model. Very disappointed in Honda.
