2011 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I am still debating if I like this car! I had a SUV for 12 years and downsized for fuel economy. The seats are very uncomfortable and the road noise is HORRIBLE. You CANNOT hear someone in the backseat talking to you on interstate without them almost yelling at you.
If I had to do it all again, I would not choose this car based on the interior noise and very uncomfortable seat.
I have read reviews and saw that others have complaints about the seats as well so I guess nothing can or will be done to correct my car (problem). Definitley take for a test drive on interstate if possible..


Best Features

Gas mileage and interior. The leather seems a bit cheap compared to what I had in the past vehicles.


Worst Features

Interior Noise and SEATS!!!

2011 Honda Accord LX-P 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is my fifth Accord, and they continue to improve and refine them with each new model.
Very well put together.
I have had mine for about eight months and have almost 10K miles on it.
Everything is still as it was when new.
No squeaks, rattles, or issues of any kind.
Great ride, great feel and handling.
Tire noise is a little loud, but once I wear out the Dunlops I'll put on something quiter.
I'm 6'4", so the seats could be a little larger, but there is plenty of head room and I have no problems driving for six hours at a stretch.
The 4cyl is peppy around town, but it is by no means fast, I would describe it as adequate.
I have need averaging just over 30mpg in mixed driving.


Best Features

Great gas mileage for a car of this size. Huge trunk. Honda reliability and resale value. I love the interior, it is very nice place to spend time. Paint and finish durability is excellent, 10 months and not a single chip or scratch, and that is with quite a bit of hwy driving. Love the telescoping steering wheel, easy to find a comfortable driving position. Very accurate cruise control. Plenty of interior storage. Glad I went for the LX-P: Alloy wheels, security sytem, lighted door and steering wheel buttons plus more for not much more money.


Worst Features

I think they should make the 190HP 4 cylinder the base engine, or make it an option on the LX and LX-P, the 177HP 4cyl is a little weak at hwy speeds, but I didn't want to spend the extra $ to get the EX with the bigger 4cyl. Sound system is lacking, not the best sound quality and no USB input. Placement of the 12V power port in the center consol is strange, it is toward the middle of the compartment which takes up space and is hard to access.

Review

Many people are reporting steering wheel vibration and dealers can't fix this issue. For example read this thread:

http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f197b14/0

Do your research before buying! Some people are reporting success in having Honda admit there is an issue but I bet not everybody has money for a lawyer.

The best course of action is to call BBB Auto line and get them involved. With enough people complaining Honda must look into this issue.


Best Features

not many to be honest. it's a nice car to drive for 6 months before issues start.


Worst Features

Time to go back to the drawing board! What good is a car packed with features that doesn't drive as expected.

2011 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Bought a 2011 EX-L sedan and after 6 month I
started to experience steering wheel shake, took the car back to dealer more than 5 times and they can't find the problem. Last time they told me this is "normal" road noise.... go figure from a 6 months old car the wheel shakes like crazy and they can't find a problem !? If this is Honda quality I'm looking at other brands. Check forums for many many similar issues with the Honda Accords.

I contacted BBB to get this issue resolved because Honda is not making good on their warranty.

Over time Honda brand has slipped way down in quality/value. Look at other brands for better buy for your buck. Better options for same price @ other brands.


Best Features

ok design, nice to drive when new (first 6 month)


Worst Features

Poor quality control and unqualified service personnel to resolve known issues. Dealers know about issues reported by consumers but they try to get you to believe they are normal.

2011 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This will be the last Honda chosen, have also a 2005 model which is a great car. 2011 EX-L 4cyl is more like a lemon,driving 135 highway miles daily, speed 60-75mph, fuel mileage 26-27mpg,no mountains,1 person in the car, has issue with fuel tank when more than half filled you hear fuel splashing in the back giving impression of waterbed in the trunk. Hydroplaning starts at 55 mph with normal rain, rear brake pads wear prematurely,driver seat lumbar defective causing discomfort and requiring to adjust seat constantly to remain in the car. Leather is low quality, exterior appears cheap, "lighting section" left & right to license
plate is fake, would not recommend this vehicle.


Best Features

Bluetooth, other: NONE


Worst Features

For Honda to take responsibility and acknowledge existing problems, described by many others. It will be much more expensive for Honda if those "taken" for a ride leave the brand and voice their disappointment.
