2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had a 2004 Acura TL and traded for a 2008 coupe and couldn't be happier. Looks great inside and out and I feel a real competitor to the Infiniti G37 at thousands less. Spend a lot of time on the road and the car is never boring to drive in city or highway. Great performance and handling make this a real Winner!


Best Features

Styling gets many compliments. Don't see many coupes coming and going on roads.


Worst Features

Auto dimming rear view mirror, memory seats, power passenger seat, blue tooth capable without nav.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

OK, compared to some cars, it may seem underpowered, but the reward comes at the fuel pump. Fun is still a standard feature with the Manual Transmission. Absolutely no regrets here. Got my Acura CL without the high price...


Best Features

XM radio, styling (coupe), Fit and finish.


Worst Features

Full iPod integration, HID headlight availability. 6-speed trans availability with the I-4 engine. Even better sound insulation.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe LX-S 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I just traded in my 2007 Jeep GC, for this car. I love it so much, it was a great purchase. The car is getting great gas mileage (28 mpg) even though I have only been driving it 2 weeks. I expect it to break in about 3 months. I find that the features of the car are super nice for a low-end model. Daytime running lights, rain sensing wipers, Text display radio w/MP3, steering wheel controls, AUX input. Most of these I did not even get on my $30K Jeep. Maybe i am used to driving a 6-cyl, but this car is fast from 0-60 for just a 4-cyl. Great speed in 2nd and 3rd gear. Only downside so far was the wheels. I plan to buy some nice rims in the spring.


Best Features

Rain/speed sensing wipers, day time running lights, GREAT gas mileage


Worst Features

Add the regular rims to the low-end model.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I turned in my S2000 for the Accord Coupe V6 w/ Nav and auto trans. I must say the nav is fun to play with, still getting to know all the functions and voice command. The stereo and XM radio is great. The speedo/tach is a little boring compared with the new Civics and S2000, but it's bright and legible at night. There is a faint pull when the cylinders switch from 6 down to "eco" mode, but it's very faint. Ride and handling are great as is the power, though pretty unimpressed with overall fuel economy but at least it doesn't take premium (averaging 23 mpg). But it looks hot, so for me, switching from an S2000 to this was important. People will gawk.


Best Features

Navigation, interior illumination, plenty of power, sleek exterior, smooth ride, handles well. Love the XM radio, ability to change navi screen colors. Large trunk, adequate back seats, power up and down windows. Looks great in black. :)


Worst Features

Don't see a point in the ability to turn off cylinders if the fuel economy isn't that great. Needs xenon headlights. Would love paddle shifters. Navi graphics/interface could be better. Get rid of the boring speedo/tach and put something fun like the Civic or S2000.
