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.

Pros

The look is very catchy to the eye. Its a v6 so it has lots of power and accelerates preety fast. Its a fun car to drive.

Cons

I've really had no problems with the car so far besides normal check-ups and oil changes.

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 Value And Dependability — Great car, mileage ~ 33 mpg on the highway, ~ 24 in the city. Very comfortable for long trips, handles well and smoooth to drive. 7 years old and I have absolutely NO problems with this car. Could use just a bit more room in the trunk is all.

Best Car On Earth — HONDA I mean the name tells you everything. Honda is known for the most durable car for its class. I drove a lot of cars. I've worked as a vallet parker, too. But this car, hands down, the best car in the earth. I know, you will think more of lamborgini or whatever you like for the best car on earth. But I'm saying as in overall. First, the price. I picked this baby up for little more than $18000 with 2.9% APR. Under $20K, still upto this year, 2008, Honda Accord would be your best choise. 2nd, appearance. The car's body and its molding is amazing. It looks sharp and for few years of driving this car, I never thought this car is ugly. 3rd, Performance. This car can be fast if you want it to be. It lowered the tourque down a bit than its HP - I think for fuel effietiency. But it has more than enough! Because when you step on it, after 70 miles, u will def. see this car picking up the speed. and with V-Tec, the car is amazingly fun to drive!! 4th, ETC. Once my mother took the car out of my garage and scratched my front. And it costed me little than I expected. Honda parts are usally cheap because this car is all over the place in US. So it is a plus if you want it to be :D Bad thing about this car? Nothing. Except you will see a lot of you on the street if you drive this car. haha Which could be really awful thing for you. But I don't mind. I think seeing a lot of same cars proves that I'm dring the best car on earth :P Loved driving this car...ahhh. Sux my sister gets to drive it now :*( Hoping to get a 08 accord soon thou :P OK! Conclution. BEST CAR, get it if you can. THx! -Eric Lee

Good Looking Car With Low Miles — This car drives and brakes well. The car has a nice look to it and it is very comfortable to ride in as well as drive. There is not a lot of road noise and it is smooth. The gas mileage is good and not much maintenance is required. Over all fun to drive and safe.

Pros

Car is fully loaded with leather, sunroof, and drives very smooth and very low maintenance. Honda Accord is one of the most reliable cars out there and have the BEST resale value.

Cons

Some scratches and nicks on the car.

Awesome Looking Car, Stylish And Reliable. — I bought this car two months ago, and I'm glad I did. My Honda Accord is SUPER reliable and hasn't gave me a problem since. Got a great price for it too. If you are buying a used car go check out Paradise Enterprises. They have lots of Toyota and Honda vehicles and the prices are not bad. There is no pressure on buying the car, and they are very friendly. Overall I love my car and now its time to customize it !!

One Bombproof Honda — There is one thing about these Hondas that they all share, they are bombproof! We abuse our cars and get the most out of them, and for minimal cost of ownership(services are cheap), its great to drive, very comfortable and we have not had one problem with it yet. The V6 is very potent, and the ABS brakes slow you down quick. It gets good mileage if youre not a leadfoot, but brakes wear out faster than our CR-V. Overall its a really fun car with a lot of power, and doesnt cost much to keep it running strong
