An Excellent Family Sedan
By radcar1 on
Vehicle2014 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
ReviewWe have had our new Accord for about a month and a half and put on about 4K miles, including a 3K mile trip.
The new accord is a very smooth car, especially around town, and gets excellent gas mileage.
We have always bought the V6 model, and traded a 2007 EXL-V6 for the new one.
I was reluctant to buy a 4 cyl. but a test drive impressed me.
Indeed, it does have plenty of acceleration and so far the CVT is very nice.
Some have said that the CVT roars when you accelerate, but we find it to be similar to the V6 roar when it downshifts.
It doesn't accelerate quite as fast as the 07 V6, but it was more than adequate when merging on the interstates.
Our gas mileage was 37 mpg for the trip.
Best FeaturesGas mileage. Love the right turn camera. Memory seats. Forward collision which appropriately went off twice on our trip. Hands free link phone. My wife loves the car and Honda has done an excellent job in our opinion.
Worst FeaturesSplit rear folding seat. The new accord is very quiet on smooth pavement (compared to 07), but can get noisy on rough pavement (might be the stock Goodyear tires).
