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


Don't believe the estimated mpg. I consistently get 26mpg city/hwy & 31 hwy. This V6 is fast, comfortable & fun to drive. It doesn't handle quite as well in the corners as my previous car, 1995 BMW 525i, but would blow the doors off it. You do notice road noise at hwy speeds & the ride is a little stiff, feeling the bumps in the road, but that could be the original tires. It handles well in snow even with original tires. The interior & dash are well designed to keep controls simple and easy to reach. I'm a 6'2" male & have plenty of leg & head room.

Best Features

Fuel mileage, Looks, Heated Seats, 0-60 mph, 8 Cup Holders, Interior Comfort, No Blind Spots, Storage Compartments, Chrome Duel Exhaust Tips, XM Radio

Worst Features

The VSA on V6 model tends to make the car feel like the transmission is doing something wrong sometimes, at speeds under 10 mph. Paint chips easily, especially at edges [door, hood, deck lid].
