Current Accord, Not your typical Honda
By JohnD on


2009 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


As a long time owner of Hondas and Acuras, this car has been a great disappointment. Within the first year of ownership we have had to take it in to the dealer 9 times for repairs (not including the scheduled maintenance). Seven of the nine times related to interior parts, including the driver side sun visor spontaneously falling off and dangling in front of the driver. Two of the repairs were on the brakes. Honda is involved in a class action law suit regarding the rear break issue (Google it). The front brakes also had to be replaced this is a separate known issue for which there is a service bulletin. Ask the dealer about the break issues before purchasing this vehicle, I wish I did.

Best Features

- Exterior looks good -Large back seat -Decent power for a four cylinder

Worst Features

-Poor build quality compared to previous generation accord. I would suggest Honda refocuses on quality. -Dashboard layout is a little strange. I would prefer less of a symmetrical design in favor of a more intuitive design. -Get back to basics; build a reliable, well built fuel efficient car.
