2012 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I lease this car for the last 2+ years and can't wait to give it back .
- The seats are very uncomfortable causing lower back and hip pain when driving more than 20 min. I adjusted the seat on any possible way but I couldn't find a comfortable position.
-Grinding noise coming from plastics .
- The road noise when driving on the highway is very annoying .
+Fuel consumption is OK, a full tank for 370-400 miles with regular .
+The space for passengers is really good.
+Overall no mechanical issues .




Best Features

Space for the passengers . Reliability


Worst Features

Seats and road noise on the highway

Review

excessive road noise is unbearable! Do not buy this car if your looking for a comfortable, quiet ride cause it will drive you crazy & give you a sever headache.


Best Features

the design from outside to inside is great. Very good looking car. Looks is so deceiving. Great power on acceleration.


Worst Features

Honda has to find a way to reduce road noise on this car.

2012 Honda Accord Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car and have had it more than a year.
I see other complaint like the seats but you can push the button for the lumbar to go all the way back so you dont feel and it is fine.
I have driven for 5 hour trips and I am fine in this car and comfortable more than other cars I have driven and same with my wife.
I also like the road feel of the car so it truly is a drivers car with great handling and responsiveness.
The car is a sleeper and the vtech ready to unleash its inner beast anytime you have need for the extra punch and nice exhaust sounds.
Honda's are just all around great cars and no issues and I drive rough and still cant break it.


Best Features

Leather Heated Seats. Luxury Feel, Nice Stereo, Alloy Wheels and Rims. Plenty of Room as well and awesome on Gas especially on the highway.


Worst Features

Nothing I can think of. Car is perfect the way it is. Would be nice though to have blu tooth but the handling and performance make up for that vs other cars in the class.

Review

Honda quality for 2012 does not include transmissions.
Shifting at low speeds is unpredictable.
Hesitation was a common occurance.
It left the driver unsure of what to expect when pulling out in traffic.

The car feels like an old "boat" from the 1960s.
It is too big and bulky.


There may be 190HP under the hood but you don't get to use it due to the tranny.

For my wife's safety, I traded it after 27,000 miles.


Worst Features

Find someone who can build a decent tranmission and get some zip back into the performance. The horses may be there, but getting them in motion in another thing.

Review

This car does not blow hot air when the temp is below 0 deg F.
If you live in cold climates and don't want to over dress for a long commute to work, then make sure to test drive this car in the winter on a subzero day before buying. I actually took this car back to the dealer to have the heat checked in my first winter. The dealer said it was working normal. I've since asked other Honda owners about this and they agree that the heat is poor. My old Galant with 230,000 miles heats up much quicker and hotter!
I am sadly trading this car in because of this as I'm tired of driving in an icebox.
For a car with such a vaunted reputation, I am greatly disappointed with this vehicle.


Best Features

-Heated seats (the only source of good heat in really cold weather) -Gas mileage


Worst Features

-Offer Bluetooth/Handfree option to packages other than the premium package -Upgrade Rear View mirror as the auto tint does not darken the morning sun adequately and will blind you -Upgrade the car's cabin heating system as it does not warm up on really cold winter days (at or below zero F)
