Awesome 09 Accord — Overall I really like this car, very low cost to maintain, very responsive and a great ride. I really enjoy how it handles, the overall gas mileage, and its power. The heated seats are always nice for the midwest winters.

Amazing Car For The Price Definitely Recommended To Any Car Enthusiast — This review is for my 2009 Honda Accord EX-L. Much better than my Altima. Impressive sounding exhaust note, Textbook example acceleration on takeoffs. Great amount of torque and hp for the price.Interior, and exterior looks and quality, make the altima look horrible for an almost $5,000.00 price difference. Very high reving engine, great transmission. Car automatically downshifts itself right when u want it to. Amazing bang for the buck with this car. This car is sooooo much better than the altima in almost every category you can think of. The weight of the car slightly affects the performance numbers but this car is very fast to 60 from a takeoff and feels quite a bit faster then what the performance number rate it at.Honda actually uses the engine from the LX accord and tunes it from 177hp to 190hp for this car. You can definitely hear and feel the difference from the exhaust note, and slightly in acceleration as well. Engine revs suprisingly high getting up to almost 7200rpm before hitting the rev limiter!!!! Much better than the altima transmission in many ways. Engine sounds great even at idle and the exhaust even has slight burble to it even at idle. Just to let you guys know this car has the exhaust finisher/tip that comes on this car straight from the factory.Although this car has nearly 200 Japanese ponies, all this fun affects the cars mileage and it averaged about 19- 21mpg on a test i did. Car is beautifully styled as well, the dashboard resembles that of a bmw 6 series and quality is amazing. Nothing feels cheap or inexpensive. The steering also feels great on this car as well. IF YOU ARE CHOOSING BETWEEN AN ALTIMA OR ACCORD, GET THE ACCORD!!!!!!!!

If You Have A Decent-sized Family And Are Looking For A Comfortable Daily Driver, Buy It. — I love that its comfy. Build quality is amazing, no maintenence necessary. Performs good on gas, and thats about it. Costs nothing to own, just change the oil and watch for any notification lights. Smooth ride, too much road noise though. For what its worth, amazing car.

Stay Away, Do Your Research — Fortunately this car was under warranty when the engine components had to be replaced. In total there has been about $6K in repairs before 100K miles. Stay away from the 2008 to 2010 Accords. Very disappointed after owning 2 Accords prior to this.

Pros

It's a Honda---reliability and build-quality factor is superb.   Audio system sounds very good.  Love the 5-speed transmission--a rarity in cars anymore!     Very roomy inside--the back seat is huge.   Very good power for a 4 cylinder---as long as you leave the air conditioning off.

Cons

Glove compartment door hangs down slightly on the right side--it's a small thing, but annoying because the overall build quality is typical Honda.    If you run the air conditioning, the car loses power.   Rear brakes and calipers had to be replaced at 50,000 miles.

My Wife Loves Her Accord — Our 2009 Honda Accord EX sedan has been a great car since we purchased it used with 35,000 miles. The only thing we've done other than oil changes is we had to have the rear brakes replaced at 50,000 miles. That was somewhat disappointing since the calipers were shot as well, so it was an expensive fix. I could understand the pads needing replacing, but the calipers were a disappointment. Other than that, the car has been fantastic. It's very good in snow with the traction control and the 5 speed manual transmission. I recommend snow tires for it if you drive in winter conditions, however. It's a fun car to drive, with sports car-like handling and decent acceleration--especially for a 4 cylinder. The a/c sucks up some of the power, though and hurts your gas mileage. We've got 34 mpg on a trip before so mileage is very good. I know the motor will go well over 200,000 miles so if we can keep the body from rusting out, we plan on driving it for years to come. We'll be back for another Accord when it's time to trade.

Very Good — low milage, but very luxury. A very good car compared to competion and price. Especially good on the long drives with a strong and very silent engine. Good quality all over and very though through solutions. I will definitely recommend this car to others

Poor Quality — This is my 5th new Honda, and my last. The quality has declined since my first 1998 Honda Accord. The rear brakes have been replaced 5 times with only 85,000 miles. I have had to replace both front axles, the timing chain, and CTV module. None under warranty. I have also had to replace both keys. Both broke where the metal and plastic meet. One key was used only a few times.

Reliable — I really enjoy my 2009 honda accord lx. The drive is quiet comfy and the gas mileage is good. Literally the only maintenance costs are regular inspections and oil changes. This car is great for anyone young or old I have not found anything wrong with it.
