Hello, while this might not be the right place to put this information I hope someone can find It useful. I am currently in college and drive 50 miles a day highway. I purchased this car used two months ago and so far its been great! It is a 2012 special edition with 55,000 mi. Being a 2012 it isn't to advanced, but it works very well for me I love the layout and the controls. I will say that it is quite uncomfortable for me I am 6'2 and after about an hour of driving I get extremely stiff but for short drives it works out just fine. My gas millage is great in my opinion for the size of the car but below I have created a chart in which I have gathered data on my driving and my MPG and how I drive. The Fuel tank is 18.5 gallons which is very nice but when driving aggressively and over 65+ I have found that my average MPG is close to 23 (this is all highway) and driving more sensibly at around 55-60 I can usually get 30MPG Therefore with 23 Mpg you can go 425 miles on one tank while 555 miles on the other, giving you a difference of 129.5 miles dividing that by thirty in which you could use those miles if you drive smarter @30MPG you save 4.316 GALLONS PER FILL UP!! And lets say right now im from Texas and gas here is about 2.00 A gallon so you can save 8.60 A Fill UP!! Lets say you fill up 4 times a month so 8.60 X 4= 34.36 that you can save a month so by driving smarter you can save an entire tank of gas a month! And 34.36 X12 That's 412.33 DOLLARS A YEAR! (or about 22 fill ups on an empty tank) I hope you all find this information useful and maybe even save some money!:D Overall I would highly recommend this car to anyone it is pretty basic but gets the job done and efficiently!
This was my first car, I recently traded it in for a BMW X1 and couldn't be happier. While I am not someone who can tell you car specifics, I can say the overall safety and appeal of the car is not good. I am 5'4" and could not see out at all. Whether it was changing lanes, backing up or even seeing in front of me. I only test drove this car once and in the moment, I didn't notice it too bad because I didn't have a lot of previous experience to base off of. However, over the two years I owned this car I only put 20k miles on it because I felt so unsafe driving. I tried everything to be able to see out better; moving mirrors, changing the seat up and down, nothing worked! Also, this car was extremely loud on the road and the longer I owned it the louder it got. The interior of the car seemed very busy and cheap to me. The whole interior was really a bummer for me, it looked cheap, was hard to clean and the leather seemed very low quality. With all of the negatives being said, I will say the car never gave me any engine problems and did seem fairly reliable. The car served its purpose as a first car but I will never recommend this car to anyone for safety and overall appeal, I am much happier with my BMW!
2012 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased a 1 year old Honda Accord For my daughter 2 years ago 10000 miles when purchased 39000 now and the Rack and Pinion steering went out read 2 message boards and found several (over 50 ) Honda Accord owners have had the same issue with low miles and yet Honda does NOT back there product $1200-$1500 to repair a 3-1/2 year old car that was $24000 when purchased Not a happy Customer #Hondadoesnotbackthereproduct
The 4 cylinder engine in the is EX rated at 190hp instead of 177 in lower trims. The car has nice acceleration and a strong transmission. Bigger inside than Camry and Fusion, and it's great for tall drivers. I'm 6' 3" and I have plenty of headroom with the sunroof even when wearing a ball cap. You can have someone you don't know sitting in the passenger seat and you'll both be comfortable due to lots of hip and shoulder room. I was disappointed to find out the EX trim does not come with an outside temp display in the odometer. Only EX-L's come with that. No fuel computer either unless you have the EX-L with nav. It does have a USB and a 6-disc changer but the stereo is eh. My biggest complaint far and away is the A/C blower. It's very weak. The dealer and 2 other repair shops verified that's just how Honda's are. Bummer but I'm gonna keep the car anyway since I got it 2k below book value. Happy Shopping !!
