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


Love the styling. However, this is a BIG car, and it handles like one. Poor rear sight lines make you fearful to change lanes. Cheap touches in the interior abound (the steering wheel and gearshift would probably work in a Dodge, but are sub-par for a Honda). The one thing I HATE about this otherwise vanilla and inoffensive car is the brake squeal. My brakes sound like they're made of steel wool. They literally grate on my nerves. What was Honda thinking?

Best Features

Outstanding safety features: ABS, VSA, TPMS. Love the oil life sensor and the aux input jack. Great styling, both interior and exterior.

Worst Features

Get rid of the very cheap feeling steering wheel and gearshift. I know Honda is trying to get everyone to buy the EX or EX-L, but Mazda (e.g.) doesn't penalize its thrifty customers by making them feel like they're driving a Dodge Caliber. And why in the world does this car not have a manumatic?
