Ideal Business Car — comfortable to drive, automatic and reliable. Good fuel consumption. Could not be better choice for a long distance drive.

Great Value Mid Size Sedan With Lots Of Features And European Styling. — The Honda Accord name has a reputation for quality engineering and is very well priced at a starting price point of approximately A$33,500, a considerably lower price than the major rivals, being the Mazda 6 and Subaru Liberty. It represents a solid value-for-money proposition, with standard features such as a vehicle stability assist, front and side airbags, a 6-disc CD stereo and dual zone climate control. Honda's 2.4 litre inline 4-cylinder engine stands up well against the 2.5-litre Liberty and 2.3-litre Mazda 6, generating a class-leading 140 kilowatts of power. An average fuel economy around 9.2L/100Km in City traffic, dipping to approx. 8.8L/100Km in out of town Freeway driving (auto model), it is quite miserly in the fuel stakes for this class of car. Although manufactured in Asia, it has a strong European feel in build and fittings and is a highly recommended mid size vehicle.

A Really Great Car — Two months ago I traded my 04 Grand PrixGTP(supercharged)POntiac for this 05 Honda AccordEXL V6 Coupe.Great looks,handling and the 3.0 Vtec engine is a real workhorse(smooth,good acceleration and quiet.The leather seats are of very high quality as is the whole interior.This is my first Honda and I am very impressed by the build quality.We will be checking the 08 Accord Coupe when it reaches the dealers.

Pros

Interior is very comfortable and the layout of all controls and equipment fits the driver's needs. The exterior is sharp and sleek. The performance is much improved over older Accords and makes for a very fun drive.

Cons

Limited visability out the rear window also larger blindspots than on other cars. The electronic touchscreen controls are confusing at first. Has dual mufflers but not true dual exhaust. 17" rims make it expensive to replace tires. When setting the alarm the horn honks loudly, instead of a quieter, more subtle electronic beep.

Have To Check The Badge On The Back To Make Sure This Is Really An Accord — After owning my '05 Accord EX V6 Coupe for just a very short time, I am already very impressed. The overall styling, comfort, safety, and performance is up to par with cars priced thousands of dollars more. The exterior of the Accord, in my opinion, is very sleak and sexy, without attracting lots of extra attention as a Subaru WRX, or Honda's Prelude. The lines of the car flow perfectly, and the headlights are angled to match the lines of the car. The 17 inch stock rims fill the wheel well perfectly, and the fog lights upfront provide more than ample light on dark backroads at night. The only downfall I can think of on the coupe's exterior is that although the dual mufflers look very nice, it does nothing for perfomance, and just adds extra parts that could rust or possibly need to be replaced someday. The interior of the coupe is near perfect. The heated, power, leather seats are very stylish and comfortable, and are great for long roadtrips. The touchscreen controls for things such as a/c and audio controls are a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, they are very convienent. The steering wheel, besides having cruise control control on the right, also has audio controls on the left, as well as a voice activation for the GPS navigation system. The guages in the dashboard are big and easy to read, and are electronically illuminated providing crystal clear readings in any light. The rear seats are easy to get in and out of for a coupe, and have a surprising amount of legroom ( I am 6'2" with long legs and fit fine). The seats also fold down allowing for storage of long items. All of this with a nice sounding premium audio system and 6 disc changer make the accord's interior very conveinent and comfy. The only complaint i have is that the blind spots are a little bigger than in other four door sedans, but not bad for a coupe. The performance in the EX coupe comes from a 3.0 liter, v6 engine kicking out 240hp and 212 lb ft of torque. The engine is equipped with Honda's iVtec variable valve timing technology. This kicks in some time around 5,000rpm's, and gives a nice little power boost along with an engine growl that is to die for. This engine is matted up with a 6 speed manual transmission. The shifts are very tight and precise. The engine loves the high rev, and doesn't mind when you downshift at all. With the traction control on, the coupe takes off fairly fast, especially for an Accord. The only cons about the performance are that the 6 speed gearbox is a little tight, which took me about a week or two to get used to when shifting. And I'm not sure if it is just my particular car or not, but sometimes it doesn't like it when i shift into third, and either seems to not click into gear, or sometimes it grinds while going in?? OTher than that I am very satisfied with the overall performance.

Great Ride — I bought the car used and received great customer service. The price of the car was at blue book, and the car drives as good as they say. Over all satisfaction is A+.

Comfortable & Simple Upkeep — I'm a Honda fan and have enjoyed my 2005 Accord EX hugely. It is comfortable, roomy, handles fine and never requires maintance. My only compliant is that I wish it had a way to plug in my ipod. Very happy I bought this over a VW, which several friends have had lots of minor issues with.

Pros

Looks and style good for a car from 2005.  Still reliable at 160k miles.  Handling.  V6 Power.  Leg room. Price.  Fuel economy.

Cons

Just normal wear and tear.  Rear seats don't fold down to extend cargo space because of the hybrid battery.   No spare tire; instead it has tire repair kit, pump, and lift. No sunroof available for hybrids.

Planning To Keep This Car As Long As Possible — Economical car with reasonable maintenance cost. Reliable. Because of the hybrid electric/gas technology, it has great fuel economy. It has the speed of a sports sedan with 255 hp in this very light car; excellent at passing. Suspension is appropriate for its class
