5 Star Car — It's a Honda so the reliablity has been great and I do just fine gas mileage I go 425 miles on a tank . I just tried the civic, but can't go that way as the acceleration is just not there like the accord which spoiled me. I have handed this car over to my son and am looking for a car now. Wow its been awhile did some looking in 2012 but they have come along that's for sure.

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.

Great Powerful, Efficient, Reliable Sports Car — I really liked the car. It's fun to drive and has a lot of power. Great luxury interior by the way. The EX-L is one of the top models. I would not recommend getting the 4 cylinder or anything less because this car really does have it all. A great daily driver. Will definitely keep you on your toes. For the money and the cost to keep this car maintained, I can't complain. Parts for this car are abundant and plentiful.

Excellent Daily Driver — This was my mom's car and she absolutely loved it. Comfortable, reliable, and classy. The car is very quiet on the road and the build quality is outstanding. Extremely low miles. This car will last for many years to come.

Better Than You Would Expect — I loved the ivtec v6 engine. It's just the right amount of fast. This car has the luxurious look yet the sporty feel and drive. The wood trim makes it 10 times better on the luxurious side of things. All in all, I'd rate this car a 9.7 out of 10 only because i like faster cars. But it is an amazing car. Definately would buy one again.

Honda Performance — I'm not a big fan of the interior wood trim but it gives it a luxury look. You could almost call this car luxurious and almost call it sporty. Not bad for a family sedan. A set of nice new rims and this car would be styling.

Great, Reliable Car. — Car is really sporty, with great acceleration and handling. 0-80 on highway in no time! Perfect commuter car. Car is 8 years and never had a problem other than maintenance items. Audio, controls, accessories are great. Styling a bit plain, but add some exterior molding and its cool enough.
