Awesome And Sleek. — My 2008 Honda Accord Coupe blends great looks with strong V-6 performance and good fuel economy, making it one of my favorite cars to own. Sleek, great style with great handling and reliability. Comfortable leather interior, loaded and sunroof. Low maintenance cost.

Pros

Never had a problem with this car.  Great to drive, quick, fast, handles great and looks just as good!

Cons

As big as the trunk is, its no match for a baby and all that come with her traveling.

Great Car — This car was great on gas, performance, handling and style. We have just outgrown it as a family and time to get bigger and badder! From front to back, its comfortable, reliable, and has always turned heads. Being a 2-door was actually an advantage with installing a baby seat in the back because of the passenger seat sliding up, it was easy to get in to and out of while strapping the baby in.

Pros

The NAV system is the best I have EVER seen or used! Well worth the money for a built in system!

Cons

The Negative is I am starting to see other people buy cars that look like mine, I liked having the only one on the road for awhile. I cant wait till a turbo comes out for this car!

James' 2008 Honda Accord Coupe Ex-l V6 — This has been one of the best Hondas I have ever owned. Gas Mileage is greatat about 30+ MPG and as fast as I drive most of the time...THAT'S AWSOME! Most people think it is a BMW even with the huge Honda emblem on the front and back of the car. I paid for EVERY option I could get and because I was one of the first to buy I had to pay more then most at around 35 thousand then I added 3 thousand worth of wheels and tires.

I Love This Car! — I love the handling looks and acceleration especially...but my favorite part is that it's soooo safe. In order to sum it up, I really love it and can't get enough of shining and detailing it!

Pros

This is a great compromise car.  Ours has the 6 speed manual and plenty of scoot.  It has tinted windows and looks pretty classy.  We get a lot of compliments on what a good looking car it is.  For a couple this size the back seat is reasonably comfortable.  Build quality is pretty good and there have been no maintenance or repair issues.  Local dealer is good and cost of scheduled preventative maintenance has been low.  Grandkids call it the James Bond Honda.

Cons

Torque steer can be a nuisance.  Ingress and egress to the back seat can be a hassle for adults but grandkids are primary back seat passengers and they love the car.

Great Compromise Car. — Love this car. Handles well for a front drive. Accceleration is zippy and you can feel VVT kick in. Very good looking car with the tinted windows and moderate amount of bright work. We get lots of compliments on its good looks and performance. Mercedes must have liked it too because their new E350 couple looks just like.

Love My Car — That is doesn't come with HID's!!! And that the head lights aout is very sensitive to light. The power auto winds some times go up then in the middle of it going up it will stop and go all the way down. Honda sayd they dont know why its doing it, there will prob be a recall soon.

Everything.

Even when you turn the vents off, you will still feel air going through after awhile.

Its Nice And Quiet. — Very good on gas. The backseat is very roomy. I like having the leather interior and.. the dual exhauset. I wish the sunroof could go up a little higher though.. The braking is good, no squeaks. The only thing is when its raining, when the water hits underneath the fender walls, it sounds like you just scraped the cement. Freaks you out... at least me out.

Great looking car, will get up and go.  Handles beautifully and the leather is great.

You Don't See Too Many — There are some on the road but they all seem to be 4 cylinders. It's nice to have a car that you don't see three times a day on the road. The design and styling of the exterior is the best Honda has produced, beating out even the newest generation. Throw on the Honda Performance Sport suspension and some light legal tint, and you have yourself one of the slickest rides around for under 30k.
