Its A Great Starter Car, And Its Got A Good System — NO POWER!!!!!! The acceleration is horrible, and when accelerating and handleing at the same time is bad. The car is road noise is so loud. The car is fun to cruise around in with you sunroof open and the system booming, its good for a HONDA!!

Pros

Dependable, bullet proof in maintenance, very comfortable for around town or highway cruising

Cons

Apparently the aluminum wheels tend to lose their bead with tires as wheels age (very common with Hondas apparently) and so the tires leak air.  Our car's drivers seat side bolster is in need of repair.  Back seat leather needs a serious cleaning.

Honda Accord — Almost embarrassed to admit I have one. It screams middle class and is part of the background in the world of traffic. But, this car is rock solid on dependability. It's loaded, everything works, jumps when needed thanks to the V6 motor.

White Lightening Kicks Ass — This car rides like a dream. First vehicle that I have ever owned where I can actually fall asleep on the passenger's side while it's going 90 mph. It has comfortable heated leather seats. It has a lot of space and classy interior. Overall, this car is just awesome!

Read My Last Sentence In My Review. — The acceleration is adequate for the basic city driving and has okay pick up for passing. Brakes are good and the handling is great for a front wheel drive car. The build quality is typical Honda and only very minimal squeaks and rattles occur. For being that this car is already 5 years old, it still looks modern and up to date. Maintenance is good since this car hasn't had many problems although I do wish that the gas mileage would be better, I can almost squeeze 200 miles out of 1 tank of gas. :/ Overall this car is a good well-rounded car. And thats all it try's to be.

Honda Accord 3.0 V6 — Very good everyday car. The performance is very good especially on the straight when you are overtaking. I can even hear some tire squeeching when I floored it from a low speed. The car build is quite solid the leather seat is very comfortable. The trunk is adequate and the interior is simple and make sense. The fuel consumption however is not the best thing about this car. The handling is very good and the steering does give a little feedback at higher speed.

Great Commuter Vehilce! — The Honda Accord runs great and makes for a good family car. The interior is spacious and the trim is modestly enticing. With only four cylinders this car sips fuel while remaining fun to drive. I love my Honda accord.

FULLY LOADED!!!

Cons

Beautiful Car, Needs New Paint Job — Accerleration is BEAUTIFUL. Braking is great. Handling is great, *NEW BRAKES*. It has no squeaks or rattles. The ONLY problem with that car is it has been keyed 360 (around the whole car) So it needs a new paint job. Interior is great, it is fully loaded, tan leather, 6 CD changer. Gas mileage is good, 12 gallon car, 4 cylinder. The car is fun to drive

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

2005 Honda Accord EX V6 Coupe Review

Pros

Interior is very comfortable and the layout of all controls and equipment fits the driver's needs. The exterior is sharp and sleek. The performance is much improved over older Accords and makes for a very fun drive.

Cons

Limited visability out the rear window also larger blindspots than on other cars. The electronic touchscreen controls are confusing at first. Has dual mufflers but not true dual exhaust. 17" rims make it expensive to replace tires. When setting the alarm the horn honks loudly, instead of a quieter, more subtle electronic beep.

Have To Check The Badge On The Back To Make Sure This Is Really An Accord — After owning my '05 Accord EX V6 Coupe for just a very short time, I am already very impressed. The overall styling, comfort, safety, and performance is up to par with cars priced thousands of dollars more. The exterior of the Accord, in my opinion, is very sleak and sexy, without attracting lots of extra attention as a Subaru WRX, or Honda's Prelude. The lines of the car flow perfectly, and the headlights are angled to match the lines of the car. The 17 inch stock rims fill the wheel well perfectly, and the fog lights upfront provide more than ample light on dark backroads at night. The only downfall I can think of on the coupe's exterior is that although the dual mufflers look very nice, it does nothing for perfomance, and just adds extra parts that could rust or possibly need to be replaced someday. The interior of the coupe is near perfect. The heated, power, leather seats are very stylish and comfortable, and are great for long roadtrips. The touchscreen controls for things such as a/c and audio controls are a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, they are very convienent. The steering wheel, besides having cruise control control on the right, also has audio controls on the left, as well as a voice activation for the GPS navigation system. The guages in the dashboard are big and easy to read, and are electronically illuminated providing crystal clear readings in any light. The rear seats are easy to get in and out of for a coupe, and have a surprising amount of legroom ( I am 6'2" with long legs and fit fine). The seats also fold down allowing for storage of long items. All of this with a nice sounding premium audio system and 6 disc changer make the accord's interior very conveinent and comfy. The only complaint i have is that the blind spots are a little bigger than in other four door sedans, but not bad for a coupe. The performance in the EX coupe comes from a 3.0 liter, v6 engine kicking out 240hp and 212 lb ft of torque. The engine is equipped with Honda's iVtec variable valve timing technology. This kicks in some time around 5,000rpm's, and gives a nice little power boost along with an engine growl that is to die for. This engine is matted up with a 6 speed manual transmission. The shifts are very tight and precise. The engine loves the high rev, and doesn't mind when you downshift at all. With the traction control on, the coupe takes off fairly fast, especially for an Accord. The only cons about the performance are that the 6 speed gearbox is a little tight, which took me about a week or two to get used to when shifting. And I'm not sure if it is just my particular car or not, but sometimes it doesn't like it when i shift into third, and either seems to not click into gear, or sometimes it grinds while going in?? OTher than that I am very satisfied with the overall performance.
