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.

Good space in the front and rear seats.  Good space in the trunk.

Oil burner which causes many many problems, naviagatoin and radio controls are low tech and no blue tooth.  Brakes also wear very quickly.

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.

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.

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.

A Fun Honda — Performance is as great as you can expect from a 2.4 L Engine which makes it fun to drive. Quality needs work. The carpeting in the interior tends to come out easily. Appearance is great. I love the interior and exterior look of this car. It's pretty cheap to run this car in my opinion thus far. Great car overall. Just wish the back seats folded down to create more cargo room.

Overall Quality — This car looks and feels good. This car has been mistaken for higher end cars. Fit and finish are very good. The car handles well with little torque steer. This is not my first Accord, they are very consistent. The 190 hp is what it is. As 4cylinders go, its as good as any. But dont step on it and expect miracles. I am 6' 230lbs and the seat is one size or more too small. It is more comfortable now then when new.

Power would be number one.  You can pass anyone with little effort.

Cons

Truly hard to find.  Would love for it to be less expensive and better gas mileage; however, it would not be as nice and as fast.

Fun And Stylish — I am a multiple Honda owner. You only understand when you have owned one and notice the difference that are not often thought about. Great view, adjust mirrors and you have zero blind spots. VTEC offers acceleration above cars with similar horsepower. Quality can be seen throughout. The controls and buttons are all fluid and tight. The doors still shut soft and solid, even after years of driving. No other car holds their value. It doesn't matter what you pay when you buy a Honda. It is what your final cost of ownership is after you sell it and buy another one.
