Test Drive Or Sit In The Front Seat Of The New Accord A Couple Hours Before Signing. — After being okay on the test drive, the 10-way power driver seat is impossibly uncomfortable for drives longer than about 30 minutes. Feels like a bulge pressing into the center of my back, dealer inspected it and said it is normal. Car was garaged with 200 miles, was going to trade in at huge loss or replace seats with aftermarket ones (not a great solution). Lots of complaints online, didn't expect anything like this from Honda. Update: The active head restraint system is what pushes up against the seat occupant's back. Steps to remove the seat back upholstery and a couple methods to remedy the problem can be found here. Caution: some of the remedies disable the active headrest system. http://www.hondaaccordforum.com/forum/diy-answers-28/how-fix-lumbar-lump-2008-accords-hurt-your-back%2A-37122/

Great All Around Vehicle — 2012 Honda Accord Ex 5-speed manual transmission. Great all around vehicle for single commuters or the family its doesnt matter...I had a 1994 honda accord in high school and now I drive my kids in my 2012 with 2 cars seats in the back with the same comfort....Now golf clubs fit great in the trunk with plenty more room honda still has great trunk space especially since i dont need the subwoofers anymore stock system sounds perfect to me!!! love this car....but price of honda especially used ones have gone up due to reliability and popularity...recommend this to everyone and anyone.

Pros

Good handling, very roomy in front and back seats, very good fuel economy. Over all very well designed car

Cons

Road noise to loud at highway speed. should upgrade tires. The front seats are very hard. This could be a deal breaker.

Very Well Designed Car — This is an excellent grocery getter and family car. The car has excellent safety features and gets good gas mileage. Suspension and chassis is well thought out. The transmission shift points work very well for performance and economy. Honda accord even though has dated styling the car still performs well. The only issue I have is with the "hill assist" the transmission will downshift going down all hills. This feature is very annoying and I wish I could turn it off.

Pros

Good power, overall very strong and steady vehicle. Very good cargo space, feels good.

Cons

Poor mpg compared to other cars of the segment (atleast my car mpg). Brakes have been having trouble and it looks like they need resurfacing, did not expect such issues on a fairly new car.

Average To Good Car, In My Personal Experience — I use it for my daily commute to work which is about 25 miles in total. I am owning this car for about 8 months now and this has been a great car. The only problem that i see with it is that the brakes are not reliable. Saw the same opinion on the forums as well. Mine is just 23K+ mileage and i am needed to resurface my brakes.

Stylish And Fuel Saver — Overall this is an excellent vehicle with great handling and most of the amenities needed in a four door sedan. The power is a little less than expected but I'd take the fuel efficiency over power with gas prices the way they are at this point.

Most Reliable Vehicle I Have Ever Owned — This Accord should be compared and is equivalent to the apperance to BMW, Audi, and Lexus. I can't express enough about the ride quality and all the features this car has to offer. Everyone who is looking for a flashy car that holds its value should own one of these. My salesman Chris over at the Honda/Nissan Dealership in Grand Forks ND was very helpful in my purchase decision. Highly recommended young fella.

Very Reliable — Well it's my dads car but i'm the son so therefore it's half mine. It performs very well for a 4 cylinder engine. The payments on this car is $379.00 a month. It also has a usb port for playing mp3 music. Also, it gets great gas mileage. It even has a sweet interior.
