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


Review

Our 2008 Accord is very disappointing, our in town mileage is 14.3 hwy 25.4 @60 mile per hr>> after 3500 miles. Our Avalanche in town was 14.1 not a good trade off we drive slow and coast to stoplight,shift into neutral or turn off engine this is not a good driving experience. Engine performance lacks punch after 60, head rest are poor design, lacks driver seat memory rear seat a/c, radio system is marginal compared to Bose, Seats are hard and small for a large person. Numerous rattles cannot be fixed by Katy Honda, seat track broke and cannot drive for 2 weeks, VCM shudders and stays on, outside temp gauge stays at 87 degrees, map light will blind driver at night, loud road noise at hwy spd


Best Features

Styling and overall room of car, dash layout is good, nice truck room, paint is excellent


Worst Features

Redesign headrest, map light is poor design, driver seat memory, fuel mileage indicator, larger seats [I am 6" 240#} Rear passenger A/C and power jack, cup holder is useless, arm rest slides forward and cannot use cup holder, softer seats, larger readout for cruise, mileage, temp, body side moldings

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


Review

Great car with a lot of pep! Have owned a Camry before, just switched from large SUV. Very roomy inside and the throttle response is quick! Got all features available minus nav only 10 min from work. Black with black leather with chrome trim, wing and tint just pops and looks super sharp! (HID option would be nice)


Best Features

White light on display gauges and recessed GUI for radio and clock keeps glare off so you can read it. Comfortable leather seats.


Worst Features

New whiplash preventing headrests sit forward A LOT causing your head to push forward at an uncomfortable angle if you are tall. Not turn signals in outside mirrors or MPG gauge along with how many miles are left on the tank of gas, most cars have these now.

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


Review

I have found the Honda Accord to be an awesome car. I have never owned a Honda before, but really have found it to be great. The room inside the car is outstanding. I am 6 ft 7in tall and have plenty of room. My family of 5 can comfortably ride in this car.

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


Review

Had many issues with VCM - irritating nauseating in and out of 6-4-3 modes so noticeable that it made my wife/passenger ill. At about 3000 miles it all went away and the car is now a pleasure. There seem to be so many components that enter into the VCM that performance can vary WIDELY from car to car. I read about the former BMW owner getting 20 MPG 50/50 hwy and city. Well, I don't know how they drive but I am pretty aggressive and the worst I have gotten is 24 combined and I regularly get 30 in the highway at 75 with A/C on!


Best Features

V6, stereo, sub woofer,


Worst Features

fix the door locks - so annoying to manually have to unlock them every time you stop, fix the wheels - they stick out farther than the tires do - parallel parking RUINS them.

2008 Honda Accord 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.
