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

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.

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.

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 !!

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.
