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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

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/

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Attractive vehicle, build and fit are top-notch.

Cons: The front seat as delivered was too uncomfortable to keep the car.

2012 Accord EX with sunroof & 5speed manual is altogether a better car than the 1980 BMW 528i ( also with sunroof & 5 speed), especially considering the frequent repairs the BMW needed.
