This Car Helped Save My Life
By macy1022 on


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


I bought this car used with 14,000 miles on it in 04/2009.
With the exception of a brake repair fairly early on I had no problems with it.
The interior did feel a little cheap compared to my two previous Honda Accords (1994, 2000), but it didn't bother me too terribly.

I was driving this car home when I was rear ended by a distracted driver.
I was stopped in traffic, and he hit me at around 50 MPH.
The force of the crash deployed the airbags and totaled out the car.
It was unrecognizable.
Yet despite the severity of the crash, I had few injuries thanks to this Honda and its safety features.
That car saved my life, and I will forever be grateful that I was driving it that day.

Best Features

Safety features, moon roof, 6-CD player, heated seats, large trunk, exterior styling (it was a handsome car to look at)

Worst Features

The quality of the interior could have been better. Other than that, none!
