2009 Accord 4DR EXL 5M
By jodar96 on
Vehicle2009 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewPurchased the car in Nov 2011 with 37K miles. It currently has 67K miles. It looks and drives great. It consistently gets 34-36 mpg on highway driving at 70mph.
The feel and handling are great. Road noise is excessive and TOTALLY unacceptable and it is odd that at EX-L trim level, the car does not have a USB port.
I have had zero issues with my Accord. No rattles and squeaks that some complain about. I do have the power steering whine that started about 40K miles.,
Replaced the evenly worn and still in good shape Michelin with GoodYear Assurance tires. No improvement in road noise.
Both paint and interior are wearing well and have no complaints. This Accord is very low maintenance and the maintenance items are inexpensive.
I will sell this Accord shortly. I have already bought a 2013 VW Passat SE with 28K miles for its improved road noise, Bluetooth audio and phone, and moving to an automatic.
