2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

After owning a 1998 A4 and loving how it
drove, but hating the numerous little
mechanical failures I went back to Honda in
November, 2003. Love the comfort and
reliability of the car. Miss the all-wheel drive
and handling of the A4, but nothing else.


Best Features

The gas mileage is great, never gone below 30 mpg, uses regular gas, the 6-CD changer and heated leather seats!


Worst Features

Make the radio compatible for an iPod, add all wheel drive as an option and height adjustable paseenger seat.

2004 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is smooth and accelerates
well, although the handling could be
improved slightly. The quality is
excellent. This is our third and best
Accord yet. XM Radio is great feature
and stereo is great for stock. We
purchased ours for $23,800, which was
$1,400 less than Edmunds True Market
Value for zip code at the time.


Best Features

XM radio, 6 disc in dash, 240hp engine, 8 airbags, steering-mounted radio controls


Worst Features

minor - bring back covered cup holders, auto dimming mirror w/ compass should be standard on top of the line, move sunroof switch on roof

2004 Honda Accord LX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I have the 2003 model essentially the
same. Transmission leaks twice.
Tensioner pulley went out. Motor
Mounts installed incorrectly. Windows
being scratched by something in door.
Trunk liner sagging. Rattling in
back. Key is hot when you pull it out.
Automatic tranny slugish after 40mph.
Springs are too soft. Get some eibach
sport kit springs. Steering wheel
fading and armrest. Noisy idle when
air conditioner on. Air conditioner
recycles a lot. Paint kind of cheap.
Ding city so try not to park by
people. Aero line asking for dings.
Don't get the Paint protector rip off!
You can hear wind noise from
windshield. Brakes shake a little.


Best Features

A lot of driver leg room. Guages look nice and are very bright. Arm rest is very comfortable. Steering wheel does not seem to get hot even when it is 110 outside. Fuel economy is decent for road trips. Windows roll down automatically. Very nice feature in AZ.


Worst Features

Redo rear look. Make it look like the TSX from behind. You can email me at spurs32@hotmail.com for further info.

2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

After researching MANY others, I
decided to go with the Accord - agree
with other reviews that it gives you a
lot more bang for the buck, is very
comfortable, and fun to drive. They
keep their value, so that reselling is
usually a breeze. This is my first new
car and I'm looking forward to little
maintenance outside of the norm - oil
changes, etc. Dependanble, reliable,
great value - don't think you can go
wrong.


Best Features

Layout of interior, wood paneling, steering well controls, birght lighted displays.


Worst Features

I drove a Lexus for about a week - and I know you can't really make the comparision, but the suspension in the Honda is lacking. I feel every bump in the road compared to a true luxury car.
