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


Review

I have been having NOTHING but problems with my 2008 Honda Accord. First, the steering column had to be replaced within the first month of owning it. Ever since then, my car is in, on average, once a month for servicing. The rear brakes wore at 15,000 Kms when all I drove was highway. My clutch squeaks when releasing it, but they told me it's in my head. And now, I am burning oil like there is no tomorrow - it's a brand new car!! Honda will not support its customers and fix the problems I have been telling them about for the past year! What a let down Honda - you are suppose to be the best and most reliable car on the road. Maybe I just bought a lemon. But this is my first and last Honda.


Worst Features

Rear Brakes, burning oil, customer service/support for customers.

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


Review

Overall, I love the accord, it drives and handles very well, I love the interior as well as the exterior look. However, I am concerned about the brake issue because there seems to be no recall related to this. It would be a shame for an issue like this to destroy the reputation of such a wonderful company known for reliability, dependability, and low cost of ownership. Obviously having to replace your brake pads so frequently can become very expensive very soon. How unfortunate.


Best Features

styling, engine, handling


Worst Features

brake issue and some rattles

Review

16,800 miles mostly highway and I needed rear brakes. Honda says it's normal wear and tear. I don't think so. Appears I am not the only one with these issues.

Review

I liked the accord coupe since the first time I saw the Concept car back in 2007... it was other level of creation for a coupe. This car has everything, it looks GREAT in and out, and the sound of the engine (V6) uuuuufffff... Amazing!!!


Best Features

V6 engine and overall quality build.

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


Review

I've had this car about 2 years now and am at 55k miles. This car is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. I do a ton of driving for my job and can get up to 34 mpg driving on the hwy. You can't beat that with a car that looks and performs like the 2dr accord. The only maintenance I've had outside of oil changes and tire rotations is having to replace the rear break pads at 52k. I can't say enough about this car, if you are looking for a dependable good looking car, get the accord, you wont be disappointed.


Best Features

love the styling, comfortable seats, great MPG, good audio system, low cost to maintain


Worst Features

It would have been nice if they put HID's for the front headlights.
