Great car, but I'd go with Acura
By Chris Smith on


2008 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased this car in January of 08'. The pros: Stunning good looks. People everywhere tell me it looks like a BMW 6 series coupe. Great pick up (V-6 Version) and good handling. User friendly interior design. Cons- Doors seem light and flimsy when you shut them. Some small, but annoying rattles when you drive. New brakes squeak when slowing down. The VCM (Variable cylinder management) seems to lurch forward when the Economy mode kicks in and out of operation. Overall a great car. It's a Honda. However, being a previous Acura TL owner, I'd cough up the extra $3-5K and get the Acura over the Honda, especially over the sedan Honda. The Honda coupe is sharp- Get the V-6 though!

Best Features

Looks, Honda dependability, 18' rims, XM radio, power.

Worst Features

Honda needs to add bi-xenon lights. A 30K car should have those standard in 2008. Improve the VCM to make it a smoother transition. Have a type 'S' to match the new 300HP Acura TL coming out in 09'.
