2011 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Things I'm not crazy about: 1) Body styling- but I didn't buy this car for looks. I bought it for the affordability with a good engine and a manual transmission. 2) Seats are kinda uncomfortable on road trips, but again I bought this car for performance, not comfort.
Things I really like: 1) Engine gets up and GOES!
2) 6 speed manual is really responsive and I can get power to the wheels very quickly when some idiot is doing 65 in the left lane and I have to zip around him and make him feel like the moron that he/she is. 3) Interior design is well thought-out. All controls are easily within arms reach. 4) Bluetooth- 'nuff said.
Creature comforts coupled with performance= Great car!
I bought this car after owning volvos and needless to say, I wish I did NOT! It may be advertised as "the One" but it is a NONE for me. The car is just plain ugly and lacks any sort of fun to drive feel that I had from driving my volvos. It is the most boring and uneventful car out on the road today. The interior design is acceptable and the cost of service is good and those are the only nice things I can honestly say about the car. They advertise the car as holding it's blue book value, but when I took it to the dealership recently to sell it back they took so much off my purchase price that it was not realistic---so don't believe the bunk about resale value--not true.
Redesign the car with the thought of downsizing in mind.
The car is a clunker....way too big.
I recommend looking at the Kia and Hyundai sedans before even remotely considering this car.
This is my 3rd Honda. When you buy a Honda, you expect a solid car/good value...nothing complicated.
My 2011 Honda Accord 4dr has the same problem that started with in 2008 with the current generation...body creak due to a failed rear passenger weld joint. Plus, this car makes all sorts of weird sounds/creaks/groans. Google and find out for yourself many complainers.
Solution? Rip out interior panel and spray toxic lubricant on the interior area of the car. Or bend the metal parts that are rubbing. There is a TSB on point so Honda knows about this problem but is still making cars with the problem.
I bought a V6 Accord about a year ago. After a couple oil changes notice car was low of oil after only 5000 miles. Long story short car uses 1 qrt every 1500 miles and honda is doing nothin. Please google Accord oil consumtion before you buy. This is a very bad problem that Honda will not fix for me are many other accord owners. It anyone has questions email me [violative content deleted].
I have driven this car nearly 7k miles so far and it has been great! very stable on the highway and easy to get around town. Long road trips are easy and the interior is just the right amount of form and funtion.
Solid handling in all kinds of conditions. I use the sun roof all the time so that's a favorite and the drivers seat has lots of possible positions for great comfort. Also really like the automatic headlights.
My model does not have a power passenger seat or heated seats at all but does have heated mirrors... Where I live it would have been nice to have an option for heated and cooled seats.
