Pros

Looks sharp, fun to drive.  

Cons

The interior seems cheap.  The seats are nice and comfy but the look and feel of all the plastic just makes the inside feel like a much cheaper car.

Fun And Roomy. Good Car For A Family. — We chose this car mostly because of its consumer reports test. It was ranked as one of the most solid and dependable cars ever made. After the first test drive, i was sold. With gas prices the way they are, the gas mileage i get (anywhere between 28 and 32) is a welcome bonus. We bought in December, and ive loved it ever since.

Pros

Nice HP on the V6, the VCM system is amazing, Voice Recognition and Bluetooth systems, heated side mirrors, remote controlled window (and sunroof) open/close, great stereo system

Cons

The navigation software is really outdated , Honda's newest version of the nav software (v4.62) is missing many streets and roads which can be very frustrating when traveling. My neighborhood is not even in the system. Other streets which are over 10 years old are not found in the database either.

Excellent Car Overall — Some great things about the V6 Auto is that it gets great gas mileage especially with the VCM system. The ride is really smooth and the pickup is amazing. The car also has many safety features. The audio features on the steering wheel are very helpful while listening to music and driving without getting distracted. What I really like the most about the car is that it has an incredible amount of leg room. Being 6'2", I've drove many cars and ended up with a sore ankle because the leg room was just awful for my height, this is the first car that I am able to relax while driving.

Pros

5-Speed Manual
Interior volume
Quality fit and finish
Dashboard is relatively simple to get used to even though it has many buttons scattered about.

Dash may be too overwhelming for some with its array of buttons.

Why Would You Even Consider The Camry... — Test drove this car. It was a LX-Premium version of the Accord Sedan with a 5-Speed manual. The car was responsive especially with the control of a manual transmission where the full potential of the car can be unleashed over an automatic. Also drove an automatic coupe version and it was not as responsive as this car off the line. The clutch was also very easy to engage and the shifter switched between the gears with ease. This car also has ample space in front and back although the front may not be as spacious as the coupe. I am over six feet tall and it is not easy to find a car where I can fit confortably in the back seat with enough room when the front seat is all the way back. This car offers enough space. This car is tuned with the driver in mind. It makes having a family sedan an enjoyable experience with sporty characteristics. It has the tight handling and dynamics of a 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, Nissan Altima, or Mazda 6 conbined with the road manners of a luxury car. Unless you want to fall asleep at the wheel due to how boring your car is to drive and how dour it is in appearance then buy a Camry otherwise the Accord is one of the top choices for a family sedan. Another car worth considering is the new Chevrolet Malibu when considering the Accord. It is a substantial vehicle that can compete with the best in its class. Yes people, come out from under the rock you have been living under for years and finally realize that the Americans make great cars!

I'm Looking To Sell This Car Asap. I'm Asking Below Retail To Quickly Sell It. — I purchased this car new in 2008 and have been very happy with the car. I love the look and quality of the car. I average 28-30 mpg on the highway and it's lots of fun to drive. The 4cylinder I-VTEC engine is very quick and accelerates rapidly onto the highway. I love the 6 disc CD changer and I also love the fact that I have airbags all around me. Front, side of seat, and side curtain airbags extending to the back passengers. The cost to own this car is relatively low and I enjoy the maintenence minder system showing me my oil perecentage i.e. 100%, 75%, 15%. Honda recommends changing the oil at 15% which is every 4-5K miles.

Great Gas Mileage, Fun To Drive, Priced Well — bought this car because it's good on gas, has leather, gps, and bluetooth, and was available with a manual transmission. Great on gas, no problems so far, and fun to drive! I recomend this to anyone looking for a good all around car.

Lots of interior room, sleek design, refined, peppy engine,  fun to drive.

Cons

Could use a better shaped trunk and a 60/40 rear seat split would be nice.

Overall A Great Car With Lots Of Positives And Very Little Negatives. — Performance- quick acceleration, excellent braking, excellent handling. Very refined for a 4 cylinder engine. The build quality is what you would expect from a Honda. It is very good. The styling is classy and looks sleek. Nice refined finish. Maintenance has been minimum since it is less than a year old only oil changes have been needed. Gas mileage is very good. Best in class actually. Averaging about 8.2 litres per 100 kms. This is a family sedan, but it is still a fun car to drive.
