2009 Honda Accord EX-L 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Former 1998 Civic owner---loved it for 160,000 miles! Upgraded to new 09 Accord in July, 09. Fine car but I've been unable to pinpoint why I haven't been thrilled with purchase. Seats extremely uncomfortable for 5,3". Rear window around auto-defroster splotchy. Less than 20 mpg city; 29 mpg highway not bad though. No brake problems at 12,000 miles. Car idles rough. Stalled for no apparent reason approaching red light (auto transmission). Thinking about going back to Civic. Don't know if I should go with a 2011 or wait for '12 redesign. Not sure what I expected but I have not had the same satisfaction I experienced for 11 yrs w/1998 Civic. Maybe bigger is not always better.

Best Features

Large gas tank. Large trunk.

Worst Features

Seats! Seats! Seats! At 5'3" been unable to adjust to a satisfactory position comfortable for extended drives.
