Traded In After Numerous Problems

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


Having owned many Hondas before, I was excited when I first bought this car. However, it soon developed problems with paint chipping from the tail light area, rear brake squeal and premature pad wear, and a clicking noise that first was fixed by having the steering column dismantled, and then completely replaced. However the worst was the front seats. It became extremely painful to drive for more then 20 mins in them. The dealer was aware of the problem but there was no fix. I ended up trading this in for a 2006 Honda CR-V SE, which ironically is much more comfortable, problem free, and gets the same gas mileage, despite the fact that it's older. Overall, I can't recommend this car to anyone.

Best Features

Outside styling, sporty looking.

Worst Features

Fix the steering column design, brake pad material, use better quality control in fit/finish. Fuel economy was disappointing. And redesign the front seats. A web search on "uncomfortable seats 2008-09 Accord coupe" indicate this is a widespread problem in these cars.
