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


I came to this from a 2001 Maxima SE.
Have put 59k in 2 years on it.
Only repair has been the back brakes at 32k.

The cons:
in same driving environments, only averages 27-29 mpg with a 4cyl, compared to the Maxima that got 26-28 w/6cyl.
Thought the Accord would do better than that.

Front seats are not very comfortable.
Didn't notice in the short test drives, but daily driving 2-3 hours a day results in discomfort.

Interior seems to suffer from louder road noise than the Maxima.
Stereo is not bad.
Wasn't thrilled with the center dash, but it's not horrible.

The good:
It does handle pretty well.
When on 100% highway, I have gotten 32-35 mpg.
I do like the body style of it.
