This is my first Honda. I had an old Camry and i love this new car. It is fun to drive, I love the color, it has great features, the sound system is nice, the power is perfect and the gas mileage is great!
Look from front, power, interior space.
Auto lights, sound system could be better, trunk space, look from back should resemble the 2008 Maxima-sporty!
Features, quality, reliability, and performance, at a price no other car maker can touch. That is why so many people keep buying Hondas, and the 2008 Accord continues that tradition. This is a very good car.
Build quality. Styling. Gas mileage. Seats (great lumbar support).
Move ignition from steering column to dash. Trunk liner had strong odor, but was able to remove it with one washing.

I've owned two Camrys and two Avalons and all were great cars. Never considered an Accord because they were smaller. However, 2008 Accord is bigger so I took a look. After a test drive, I was sold. The car is very comfortable, the steering is tight and precise. Similar to what you'd find in a higher priced sports sedan. The navigation system and bluetooth are great and easy to use. Between the AM-FM and XM radio, the 6 disc changer and MP3 plug- in, I have "entertainment overload". On top of this, I'm averaging 34 mpg highway. The only complaint is that there is a pronounced road noise on rough roads. Overall, best car ever. If you're thinking of buying one, just do it.
Navigation system, entertainment systems, steering and over quality of the car.
I traded in my 2006 Volkswagen 2.0 turbo Passat for my new 2008 Honda Accord. I fell in love with all the goodies. Leather, Satellite radio, sun roof, and the 17 alloy wheels. For the money it was a bargain..I got the car for $24,900. Which is about 5 thousand less for a comparable new Passat. The cabin of the Honda is roomy for two adults and three kids. The seats are comfortable, and there is ample leg room in the front and rear. I also dig the lumbar support on the drivers seat. The ride quality is smooth and quiet. And there are no rattles or noises even on rough roads. The car has a certain European look especially when viewed from the side and rear.It looks like a 5 series.
Leather seats, sat radio, alloy 17 inch wheels, sun roof, and it does not require super unleaded like my old 2006 VW Passat.
The engine could benefit from direct injection. This should increase fuel mileage and increase horsepower. The car should also come with a full size spare tire. Navigation should be a standard feature. and finally a 10 yr factory warranty.
This is an awesome car. Even the beamers have to take a second look and usually people think that the car is an Acura at first glance. This car is top shelf and Honda stands firm by it with excellent "Mercedes" like service. Go buy it and see for yourself!
My favorite features are everything. The steering wheel is like the steering cockpit of a plane. It moves up and down!
So far, I see nothing. Heck the car tells you everything and did I mention that it has talk command and all the features work when you roll off the lot? Honda is really balling with this one!
