    Reliable, Roomy, Sharp But Not Snobby. — I've enjoyed my 2008 EX quite a bit. It has much nicer styling than the previous generation, very comfortable seats with power lumbar support for the driver, and a smooth ride. Everyone who rides in the car compliments me on it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very family-friendly, nice pick up for a 4 cylinder, sharp lines.

    Cons: Brakes tend to wear down a bit early.

    Car And Driver 10 Best — i have had buick ford acura(honda) bmw and dodge vehicles in the past. The overall aspects of this car are the best of any i have ever had. buick runs well but the rest of it fell apart. ford explorer was great but gas hog, acura needed too much pampering in the shop, 318 was great car but small, x3 was a mechanics dream - need servicing all the time, dodge was same as the buick

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: want a new one but this one only has 44000 miles, i keep it

    Cons: not really anything

    Amazing Car For Its Price. It Is Every Bit As Good As Most Cars That Are Twice Its Price. —

    This is my first car. I got it at age 19 on May 4, 2012 and have owned it for four months as of this review (August 30, 2012). It was under $20,000 - and may I add in pristine condition with 48,905 miles. For the price of a new Ford Focus with cloth seats and basic equipment, I have a much larger car that has luxury features such as heated leather seats, dual zone climate control, a six disc CD changer, room for five in first class comfort. The interior is very well finished with metallic plastic accents and soft touch materials. The trunk is large. How did they fit Cadillac size room and a roomy trunk into a midsize package? Despite its large interior and small exterior, this is an extremely safe car. It would seem that a car this large inside would need a large exterior with lots of metal to make it safe. The novel body structure - called ACE - makes this a safer car than its size would suggest. There are airbags everywhere - no matter how you might get hit, there's an airbag (or two or three) to cushion the blow. It has great handling and a strong engine to limit the likelihood of a crash. It handles like it's on rails. It has a 190 hp 4 cylinder engine - unless you really like to go fast, the 4 cylinder is enough. The brakes are amazing - it can stop in a very short distance, yet even slamming on the brakes, it is smooth. The car looks great - I get tons of compliments on it. I know that being 19 with a car this nice requires me to be generous in giving rides (If I didn't want to give lots of rides, I wouldn't have gotten a car this nice).

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Very comfortable, quick but not too quick, reliable as a Swiss watch, handles great, very good visibility, very luxurious.

    Cons: I hate nothing.

    Honda Accord With V6 — 2008 Honda Accord Ex-L with a V6 packs the power of a V6 and still gets 30mpg on the highway. The car has great resale value and will last for years if you take care of it. The truck space is huge and the seats in the back are very comfortable and spacious. Great buy all around!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: V6, Leather, Honda reliability

    Cons: Speakers

    You Will Fall In Love With This Car. — This car is all about having an awesome ride. Comfortable to drive. Performance is excellent. Fuel economy is best in the segment. Best among the Japanese cars. The i-Vtec Technology is unique. The Audio System is a bit lousy with rear mounted speakers good for garbage. You will need to install an amplifier and new set of speakers.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This car is true value for money

    Cons: Nufffin.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: VTEC engine, alloy wheels, sunroof, 6 disc cd changer, dash display is awesome.

    Cons: Every once in a while I hear a shaking or rattling noise in the sunroof.

    You Can Never Go Wrong With A Honda Accord — This car looks good, and drives right. I have never had an issue with it. Gas mileage is decent, too, at 25 for city. Maintenance costs are low. Overall, this car is very reliable. I would buy another, and will.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, looks great. High resale value

    Cons: Seats aren't the most comfortable for a mid-luxury sedan

    $17,000 — I like the looks of the car, nothing like the older models, it drives nicer than the BMW, Mercedes Benz that I have had. the color is great and matches up well with the interior. The smoothe ride of this car is why I feel it's one of the best to buy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The smoothe acceleration and power for a 4 cylinder eng

    Cons: I can think of none.
