2006 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Previously owned a 2003 Accord EXL V6, but switched to the 4 cyl. for nimbler handling/steering feel/fuel economy. Seriously considered the 2007 Camry XLE 4 cyl. & 2006 Hyundai Sonata V6 Limited, but the Accord won out for overall performance & styling, though the Sonata offered more car for the money and, in some areas, is superior to the Accord/Camry. The Accord's appeal is in doing so many things well, without any serious flaws. The reliability & resale are added bonuses.


Best Features

Exterior/interior styling; driver seat comfort; high quality leather; flawless paint job; good audio system; good acceleration; ample rear leg & trunk space.


Worst Features

Fogs & auto mirr/homelink should be standard eqpt; VSA/Trac Control should be an option; No auto-on headlights or auto door locks; Trunk lacks storage bins & underside of trunk lid needs covering over exposed wiring, etc.

2006 Honda Accord LX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I chose this car over the others because the Accords I drove were smooth and comfortable. The new one that was delivered for me shifts harder then the ones I drove and my daughter's '06 Accord V6/5A. I've had it to the dealer 3 times. They have reprogrammed the PCM twice and it has helped the uncomfortable shifts; but not corrected it to what I found was normal in others. Please take the car for a long drive first.


Best Features

Smooth engine/trans in 5th. Manuverable. Getting about 32 MPG on highway.


Worst Features

Need a smooth shifting transmission. Drop the feature that slows the car going downhill. I'm used to cars idling downhill - saves gas. I have to add gas and the car doesn't shift to higher gears until the road levels out.

2006 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Previous to this 2006 Honda Accord I owned a new 2000 Accord EX 4 cyl. for 6 years. After 5 transmissions and numerous other mechanical problems I was very anti Honda. I shopped around for months determined not to buy another Honda. I test drove everything in it's class and I was not impressed with anything. I went to a Honda dealership and drove the 2006 Accord and fell in love with it. I've had it 2 months now and my only complaints are that the exterior paint chips very easy and the car rolls a little when you go from park to drive. The gas mileage is not bad for a 6 cyl. I get about 300 miles for a tank of gas. Overall, I am very happy with this car and would recommend it.


Best Features

Pickup, handling, and road response, multiple seat adjustments, audio, dual temperature controls, roomy, dual exaust and spoiler option to make car very sporty.


Worst Features

Better paint quality - paint chips easily and rust issues, covered cup holders in center console, full size spare tire, stiffer brakes.
