Well rounded and quick
For reference my prior cars were a 2014 Lexus GS-350 and the large Hyundai Genesis sedan. For this car think well rounded fun to drive sedan. Light feeling and agile with a potent 2.0t engine and 10 speed transmission that generally works well and produces strong acceleration. This is a responsive driveline with generally smart gear selection. Sometimes power comes on with more impact that you expect and jumping on the gas can be downright fun with quick acceleration that surprises other motorists. Strong mid-range pull and low speed grunt that is very un-Honda like, which can take a little finesse to be smooth at slow speeds. The dash is an excellent blend of leading edge technology and simplicity that is easy to use on a day to day basis. Take some time to explore the controls and read the manual as there is a bit of complexity and the time invested will help you like the car more. Some say the basic NAV is weak but the system works better than my Lexus unit did and Android play is also available. Search for and enable the tach all the time mode for the left instrument then use the center of the gauge for something like mileage or Nav or radio-very nice. The speakers seem a bit cheap sounding especially on FM but the Siris and Bluetooth audio sources do sound better than the FM. I know it says subwoofer somewhere but I can’t hear it. The Bluetooth phone hands free produces better audio on both ends with my Samsung S8 phone than my $54k Lexus did! Further, if using the phone the touch screen is excellent as pressing a touch tones on most hands free systems is nearly impossible, while on this one it is easy. Seats are good although why the passenger seat has no height adjustment is beyond me - Please Honda add a basic manual lift option as the wife or grandmother in that seat can make no use of the sun visor and the get grumpy! Ride and handling are good but a little mixed. The steering feel with the 19" wheels is quite nice and corner is pretty flat, but the shocks are under damped as larger undulations in the road allow the car to oscillate too much even in sport mode with some bottoming feel yet there is still some harshness coming through. Road noise is easy to hear and be sure to drive the car on some different road surfaces to hear it as when tires age they get louder so the test drive is as quiet as it will get. Overall this car is a nice package and well implemented. I used the Costco buying service and got invoice plus $565. For things I’m not happy with: Item one is that the brake feel is really poor and reminds me of a hybrid car, just way too touchy and then mushy which makes it hard to be smooth. Honda needs to fix this as the feeling is unusually poor; not a deal breaker but disappointing. Parking sensors – NO FRONT Sensor for parking in garage or parking lots. There are 4 sensors on the back where you already have a nice camera but on the front there are just two for the sides – DISAPPOINTED! Road noise is higher than I like and I wish they would get more serious on this topic. Hyundai Sonata or Camray are quite a bit quieter. Auto-high beams are silly and really rude for other drivers plus it takes some time to find out how to disable this unusual and very low value feature-I don’t need the car to decide to turn on the high beams! So far mileage has been underwhelming but with just 350 miles on the car it is too soon to say much but 1/2 through the 2nd tank and 21.4 with 50/50 freeway (on Xmas day no traffic) and city streets, I was certainly hoping for more. Likely as the engine breaks in this will improve. Mud flaps at the rear seem necessary, black chrome grill accessory will help tone down the over prominent chrome grill. Trunk is flat with no real grocery bag hooks so everything goes flying. Accessory hooks and the rubber trunk mat seem like much needed items too.
A good car, but with a few problems...
I recently got the EX-L trim in November and am currently leasing. Overall I am happy with this car, but there a few things to consider before looking to purchase or lease this vehicle for yourself.
The first thing I want to mention is the seating in the driver’s position. Comparing this to the 2017 Honda Accord, seat width feels slightly reduced because of the center console being slightly larger than the previous generations. It’s also taller from the ground. Being a bigger guy who felt comfortable in the previous generations of the Accord, it’s going to take Drivers like myself some time to properly find their level of comfort with the adjustments provided on the side of the seat. If you can afford the higher trim levels, go for the EX-L for example as the remote adjustments will find that sweet spot of the seat with ease versus pulling and pushing your seat back and forth. I also don’t believe the base LX trim model can have the seats go up and down in height adjustment.
Technology wise, there’s a lot to like if you’re tech savvy. When it comes to warnings appearing on the digital driver meter as you’re driving (which you can turn off), Honda Sensing, and working on the touch screen panel, there’s a lot to get wowed by. Thankfully, if you’re not looking to get distracted by all of this, you can turn off most these features. With the way cars are moving technology wise now, this may not be the car for you if you’re not a tech savvy person as I feel the nooks and crannies of this car are surrounded by these features.
My biggest complaint is the fuel door. Most cars these days have a lever or mechanism around the Driver’s side or on the floor. In this model, it has been eliminated. In its place is having the door electronically controlled by the unlock door on the Driver’s side or by using the FOB key. I noticed one day when it was cold out that the Gas door wasn’t opening. The door should be opening when either the doors are unlocked, when pressing on the FOB key (twice on the unlock button), or when the car is off. For whatever reason at cold temperatures (possibly 30 degrees and below), it doesn’t allow the sensor to electronically signal the door to unlock. This is a BIG problem; one I would hope with enough complaints considers a recall on the vehicle. It’s also possible that since this care just came out, I happened to have a bad one among the bunch being sold. It’s a bad design choice. I hope in the future models that they will revert to having a manual way of opening the door.
Another thing to mention that I had a problem with was the touch screen panel randomly shutting off and rebooting twice. They both happened while I was stationary. The digital driver meter also shut off and rebooted. I took it to my dealer and they had reset the panel. The problem hasn’t occurred since.
This car is good overall. There’s even a few more features in the Touring such as air conditioned seats, Wireless charging for Samsung Phones, etc. That I wish I had in the EX-L trim. It drives great, and have found no problems in that regard at all. With the way technology is evolving in cars, I can’t help but think what happens if you end up deciding to finance a car like this and have it after 100,000 miles. We usually think about mechanical problems in cars, but now new issues could arise technology wise that would malfunction and cost a lot more to fix in these vehicles. I think it’s advisable to lease these cars until you eventually decide to keep one to where you know it will be suitable for long term.

2018 Accord. Another Terrific Generation!
After owning a 2013, 2014 and 2016 Accord I was excited about the new generation. The first thing that stood out when I sat in the vehicle is improved his visibility. The dash is low and the pillars are thin giving you terrific visibility. Navigation and heads up display are now properly placed (high) on dash. I was a little troubled initially because there was no full-time tachometer visible on the display. The factory ships this in the off position. It can be turned on full-time in settings and all of your other information is displayed in the center of the tach (looks great). There is a lot of discussion regarding the 1.5 L turbo. I have always bought the four-cylinder in the past for gas mileage. I keep the vehicle in eco-mode and have not noticed a difference in power with this engine versus the previous 2.4 L Others have mentioned engine noise but it is not noticeable in the touring model due to the acoustic glass on the front and sides. Engine is not broken in yet and I have already achieved over 40 mpg on the highway on several trips
