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


Review

I brought this car Oct 07 brand new with 28 miles. Today I'm sitting in pure frustration as my car now needs a 3rd timing chain replacement and no Honda Tech can expain to me why my car keeps needing timing chains, first it was the rear brake pad issue, then it was the ridiculously small battery issue, this care is a money pit. I've spent over $3500 this year just to keep transportation to work. This will be my last Honda ever..hate it too, I've been loyal to Honda since '85


Best Features

Autostart.


Worst Features

Reliability.

2008 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my car almost 2 yrs ago.
It was cute car and great on gas.
I bought it used so at first it needed a little work.
I left the lot w the car and the car died, so they replaced the battery.
Plus none of the car key remotes worked so they replaced all those batteries.


Best Features

small and good on gas


Worst Features

curious steering wheel busted. How and why when this car never been in a crash. Why when car is in parked gear all doors unlock but drivers.

2008 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought my accord new back in July 2008. Currently have about 75,000 miles. This has a been a great car so far.
The engine is smooth and has plenty of pull.
It is a comfortable car for road trips, we frequenlty make a 5-6 hour drive to California with two small childern in the back, plenty of room for everyone.

Still love the design of the car, has the look of a 5 series BMW. We average about 23mpg, mostly city driving.
On the hwy, I have gotten up to 29mpg (setting the cruise to about 80mph).

Here are the issues with this car.
First, the door trim pops loose all the time, a quick push and it is back on, but a little annoying.
Second, the rear brakes wear out too quickly.


Best Features

Smooth engine, plenty of interior space, large truck, great styling that stands the test of time, reliability, decent gas milage, great handling


Worst Features

Rear brakes wear out too quick - last about 25-35K miles Door trim keeps poping off Rubber timing belt that needs to be replaced every 60K miles, which is a bit expensive

2008 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I have always been a Honda fan and it was the first car I considered when I downsized from 07 Infiniti M35 (I miss my baby).
This car has been a disappointment. Noisy and shaking over 60mph. Sound system is ok.
It has lots of room but I just can't get into it.
Kinda regretting purchase. Bluetooth won't pair to phone.

2008 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is not typical Honda.
As in the other posts, there are many rattles with this car.
I believe the cheap plastic cover over the rear speakers accounts for one.
Dash panels do not line up properly.
My brakes made it to 48k, which I guess is pretty good condsidering others' experience.
The VCM is very noticable.
On long flat highways, it constanty switches from the 4 to 3 mode which causes a shutter (and nausea).
The seats are terrible.
Way too hard and too much lumber even in the min setting.
After a road trip, your back aches from the seats and you want to throw up from the VCM.
Get 29 on the highway.
Avg 24 summer, Summer, 21 winter.


Best Features

Better exterior styling than the 03-07. Lots of room. Good power.


Worst Features

Re-program or just dump the VCM. What is wrong with the seat designers? They must not have a spine. Go sit in a Nissan or Toyota and copy those seats.
