Vehicle2007 Honda Accord Special Edition 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewPurchased new on 12/2006. As of 3/2010, have 147K miles. Mostly New England interstate driving. Purchased this car because of reliability reputation and high resale value. Hope to keep for 500K. Average about 30 MPG over the years with a min of 23 and max of 36 in a single fill-up. No issues with transmission or clutch, engine, electric, or body. Very reliable in all weather conditions once stock tires are replaced. Only one unscheduled stop for brake replacement. Issues: - Front brakes replaced at 30K due to heavy pulsation. No replacement since. Same with rear brakes (55K). - Stock tires not great especially in winter. Snow tires are a must for New England.
Best FeaturesEngine, manual transmission, multiple power outlets, winter handling (with proper tires).
Worst FeaturesMost of my suggested improvements have been addressed in later models except one. Road noise.
