2004 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I traded in my 540 BMW for the Accord,
and I had to give up a few things;
outrageous repairs, unreliable
performance, arrogant service, haughty
atmosphere and lousy cupholders. For
that I got one super-fun to drive car
that gets 25 MGP around town and as
much as 34 MPG on a long highway trip,
all on regular! The Nav works great,
the 6 Speed is tighter than the 540's,
and yes it has real cupholders. Great
job Honda!


Best Features

6 Speed, torque, Nav, 6 Disc CD, fuel economy on regular


Worst Features

adjustable shoulder height seat belts, memory seats, 8 way passenger power seats.

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


Review

For $199/month, I can't imagine a
better lease deal out there. This car
is solid, quiet, roomy, nice to look
at, and, as a Honda, will probably
still be running in 50 years.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride with just enough road feel.


Worst Features

Slightly bigger trunk--the ability to fold down only half the back seat.

Vehicle

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


Review

The 4 cyl is powerful for city but
lacks just a little on the highway. I
would still get the 4 over the 6. I
get about 30mpg combined on the
recommended 87 octane. The leather
seats are very comfortable and
supportive. I wouldn't buy one
without the Nav and voice activation.
It makes the car and changes the whole
look of the dash.


Best Features

Navigation, voice activated radio,A/C. Leather seats, steering wheel radio controls. Side, and curtain airbags. Solid feel while driving.


Worst Features

Allow people to specifically order Hondas. I don't want or use the sunroof but to get the EX you must get it. I want to be able to have factory installed Xenon headlamps. Illuminate the steering wheel controls.

2004 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My EXV6 cp is plagued with squeaks,
creaks, rattles, and buzzing. The
dealer had trouble fixing them. The
interior looks and feels solid, but the
seats are shaped poorly. The
transmission shifts hard and isn't
responsive.

On the plus side, the 3.0 engine gives
you great high-end response if you have
it in the right gear. I'm getting 24-
25mpg on 87 in mixed driving. Handling
is decent and inspires confidence.
Brakes are catchy, but hard braking
elicits the EBD, and ABS is too easy to
kick in. Don't know about snow yet.

Serious buyers: buy the 6sp, and don't
accept delivery until you are satisfied
that your car is rattle-free and
prepped properly.


Best Features

smooth 3.0L engine/ high end response, well thought out interior (except seats), good balance between ride and handling


Worst Features

improve build quality (especially squeaks & rattles); smoother and more responsive 5A transmission; reshape seats; kill integrated climate/audio system and auto-up (yeah!) windows; "D4" cog; did I mention build quality?

2004 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Curtain Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Leased this car last week and am very
happy with my selection. Previous car
was a '03 Corolla CE 5-speed manual.
Outstanding quality of materials and
construct/assembly. Great compromise
of ride & handling. Very quiet at all
speeds. Good fuel economy for a
midsized... average 30mpg in 70/30
hwy/city respecitvely. Great stereo,
no need to consider an upgrade. Love
the styling. Engine/tranny are top
notch. Limited headroom.


Best Features

Comfort, ride quality, quiet, stereo, smooth engine, 5 speed automatic.


Worst Features

1/2" more headroom. Smoother shifts on the transmission. Paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Lighted steering wheel buttons. "Sport" mode for trnsmission that holds a lower gear for better throttle response exiting corners.
