Accord 2005 — Its going to be almost 3 years since I owned this Accord but each time I get in it, it feels like driving it for the first time. The handling and build of the Accord is simply exceptional compare to cars of its class. I love everything about this car especially the bright instrument panel that lights up when the door is unlocked.

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.

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.

Pros

Turns out rumble was in my head after 4 visits and seveal thousand dollars.  Told them that if it was in my head, take the car on trade.  Bought 2008 Accord coupe. FANTASTIC!

Cons

seats do fit by body.  Uncomfortable over long distancs.  Radio antnna not very strong.

Hybrid — Best performance / mileage you'll ever get. Probaby most under appreciated Honda. Who else can challenge most sports cars and get excellent mileage. 7-8.5 L/100km Not a true hybrid like Toyota but who wants to putt- putt around. Other than the crazy maintance schedule that Honda wants you to follow, cost has been roater which didn't repir my one constant issue. At 80-100 kph it sometimes "rumbles". Will get fixed now by a local shop that I trust.

Car — I like the car it does great on gas. It feels very solid when driving. The interior is spacious and very good looking. The sunroof is a little loud when in use but works great.I have only owned it for a month so not much else to report as of now.

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!

I Would Love This Car If I Got V6 With Leather And Sunroof — I like the car , but i need more options. This one was very basic. 4 cylinder 170hp is enough for this car. In 3 years i owned this car i only spend 400 bucks for breaks and about 600 for new tires with wheels!!!
