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


I have been a loyal Honda owner for many years, always drove the Civic. In 2008 I fell in love with the new Accord Coupe and traded in my 1 yr old Civic to step up. That was a mistake. I just had to replace my rear brakes, my 4th pair in 3 years. I had to get the engine worked on because it would make a rattling sound every morning when I would start the car. The center console "Leather" is coming apart & the leather seats look stained from my clothes. Overall I am very disappointed.

Best Features

Fun to drive, great stereo, good gas mileage and comfortable seats.

Worst Features

Honda needs to use better leather, if it's even real leather and they need to suck up their pride on the brakes and replace the whole system or recall the whole car. I love my Accord, but it's not my intention to have to replace the back brakes every year to a year and a helf.
