Great For Start Out Car. — I really like my car. Had never had to major job work on it. Has never broke down on me. Got it in Germany and drove it through Europe. My longest drive was from Mahattan, KS to Miami, FL and never broke down after 6 years of having it. Still runs like it's new.

Would Definitely Buy Another Honda. — This was the first car I bought brand new. It was 20 grand. It now has 160,00 miles. The factory battery lasted 7 years. The headlights as well. I usually take it to the dealer for service but don't follow their "maintenance schedule". Utmost reliability. Never left me stranded.

Well Maintained Honda! — I like how this car handles, the steering and the make of this car is great! I like how I can get onto the highway off or on a ramp without any issue of speed. I do move often now and a truck is what I'm currently looking for.

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.

2005 Accord Hybrid Review — Performance - This car is very quick for a sedan made by Honda, in stock configuration it produces 255 hp and 253 lbs of torque. Build quality - Excellent, this is the only model of the Accord built in Japan during these model years and the quality shows. Appearance- Standard accord appearance Cost of ownership- For those who dont do their on work, its gonna cost you. Fun factor- For a sedan its not bad

Cons

brakes were too sensitive

Great On The Environment — Our 05 accord hybrid got 32 to 35 mpg. We got 4 cylinder mpg out of a v6 which is good in this awful economy. The payments were $400.000 a month. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Too bad we had to get rid of it. I'd own it 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.

Great Handling For A Tourer — Great handling for a tourer, fuel economy 8L/100km highway. Fun to drive but practical for the family, the motorised hatchback is a nice feature, the rain sensor doesn't function very well in snowy conditions. Steering wheel remotes have a mind of their own at times, may have to change the buttons.

Excellent Drive! Honda Quality Throughout! — I love the size, the performance, the handling, the looks, and the gas mileage of this car. I would buy this car new again, but Honda stopped making it in 2007. I like the mid-size hybrid option with a sporty look and feel. No problem passing with this car!

Great Looking Car With Great Reliability. — We loved this car, we just upgraded to a larger vehicle. It had great fuel economy and was very reliable to and from work. We always kept up on maintenance schedules and oil changes, recently changing all the coils and spark plugs and replaced brakes and tires. Great car for work or student.
