Wow. Great car.

2013 Honda Accord EX-L w/Navigation 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


We also own a 2008 Accord EXL navi sedan, and so we can tell how big a jump Honda has made in several areas of this car.

First, the 2013 Accord is *quiet*—which is a first for the Accord.

Second, the new engine is more powerful, faster, and yet gets better mpg.

Finally, the interior quality is almost Acura-like.

Best Features

The Nav and controls are improved over the previous generation. When you buy your new Accord, check the VIN #. Other things being equal, you want a *higher* Vin #. Why? Honda apparently had some bugs in some of the earlier units that came off the line. Ours is defect and bug free so far. We have a Vin # of c. 140000 or so (the last digits in the number), which means ours is the 140,000 4 cylinder Accord to come off the line at the Honda factory in Ohio. My 2 cents: Go for (or wait for) the higher Vin #, esp. for higher end models like ours. They've fixed the software.

Worst Features

Hard to make suggestions when so much has improved. The new Accord is now the top car in the very competitive midsize market imho.
