My 2005 Accord With The Fat Buuttt — Love this car during the pricey gas summerss!!! 1 tank .. lets me go for 300 miles. Not much acceleration... wish i had got a V6 instead. Can't really climb any hills... like a turtle when going up a hill. The interior is very roomy, I can go to Ikea without a truck. Overall, this is a good buy. Not for luxury for great vehicle for local driving to work or school.

This Is A Great Car! Peppy When You Step On The Gas Pedal And Handles Winding Roads Beautifully. — No repairs needed as of yet. Only 56,300 miles on this car and all I have done is regular oil changes and replaced the battery. This is a fun car to drive. Handles well and is very responsive. Great fuel economy!

speed meets style.

Cons

big structure. lots of blind spots.

If You Like Little Cars Dont By This One — dont like electrnic throttle. the 2nd gear pull is nasty. eats gas, but its fun and pretty quick. i dont pay for the car, this is mostly my moms car to drive. full header-back exhaust and a v-tec controller would be nice.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Honda Accord 2.0 — Good fuel consumption, bad sound isolation The Accord is also one of the few family sedans that's available in a coupe body style, and we should note that the coupe is substantially sportier than the workaday sedan. actually good car.

Pros

Incredible fuel economy in the quickest car ever sold with the Honda logo in the USA

Cons

Terrible, terrible brakes

105

Fast, Fun And Frugal — 32MPG, 265HP, 0-60 in 5.6s. Typically, these numbers don't belong in the same set, but they do with the Accord Hybrid. Power, economy and comfort for under $32K. What was Honda thinking when they didn't continue this car with the 2008 model Accord? My only complaint about this car is the brakes. They are horrible. The rotors warp too easily, the pad wear quickly, and the transition from regen to brake pads is abrupt and unnerving.

Great mpg, Reliability, Smooth drive, Cold a/c, very practical

Cons

Just A Practical Car In Everyway That Had All The Extras. — I liked it. Was everything you expect from a Honda, great mpg, no reliability problems, just overall good transportation. It was the EX-L so it had all the extras like leather, the moonroof, and stuff. Had my sis's chrome rims on it for awhile as you see in the pic (and put the EX rims on my moms accord 4dr 03 at the time lol). I don't know.... I really did like it but nothing stands out all that much. I remember driving it with the a/c blasting in the hot weather on the parkway and it accelerated so smoothly and did have a great drive feeling. My mom still has it (traded in the 03 and kept this). Ask me how the dealer forgot to put the oil back in it after it's first oil change. Luckily Honda has some feature where it realizes that it doesn't have oil and shuts off before any damage can happen. It was on the small side, I just wanted a bigger, more roomier car... and missed driving a Jeep.

beautiful, comfortable and amazing stereo

Cons

Get A Manual One — suspension too soft and the automatic transmission takes too much power from the engine. interior is hard too clean, heavy steering. looks amazing, incredibly comfortable and fun to drive, easy to drive at around 90-100 mph and smooth ride, awesome stereo!
