After 114,000 miles of happy Hondaring, I would like to share with you my families great satisfaction with Hondas. We also have a CR-v and an Odyssey. I have the same breaks since 25,000 miles on the front and original on the rear. I average 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpgon the highway. I did 15% BETTER before Ethenol. I have broken the 40 mpg on one trip. I just wish the power was better and an extra tog in the transmission. I have been very happy with my Accord.

Manufacturer recalls, several complete break-downs, and now, after 6 years, a failed transmission and a $3500 repair characterize our experience with the first (and last) Honda we have owned. I cannot recommend the car, based on frequent reliability issues, the high cost (and frequency) of required repairs, and the runaround that Honda Motors North-America has given us when we needed something fixed. If you buy one used, make sure that - it does not have the original stereo/cd changer - it does not have the original transmission

Best Car Ever

by from West Virgina on November 30, 2014

I purchased a 2004 Honda Accord EX with 15,000 miles in 2005. The car now has 156,000 miles in 2014. We followed Honda's recommendations for service (oil change, transmission service). During this time period there have been two sets of tires and two brake replacements. This past summer the air conditioning condenser went out. As preventive measure the water pump was replaced when the AC works was done. The only problem has been the dings and dents from parking lots. Honda got it right with this car. Since it was built in the US by American workers in my home state of OHIO, I will only be purchasing Honda vehicles. If you want a great vehicle get a Honda.

Hands down best car I’ve owned

I purchased this car in Feb ‘05 as a used car with 44k miles, with only one previous owner. My DH has taken excellent care to make sure that the maintenance was performed as described in the owner’s manual. I use the car mostly for a commute daily, but we have taken it on several long trips and it has always traveled well. I have now been driving this car for more than 10years!!! In this time there have been only 2 issues with the car both were with the A/C, which is a must living in FL. The DH was able to repair both issues without costly shop expense. We have used synthetic oil for the last few years, and of course brakes have been replaced and I have replaced the battery twice. But I would count those as routine maintenance not issues with the car. I have noticed that there is more wear on the car lately, but we are using the car much more these days. I feel like we are going to soon outgrow this car with our growing family and the need for more storage space. However, as trunks go this one stands out. Plenty of space for a stroller, play crib, and the other “stuff” that you always seem to need with kids. If it weren’t for the growing family—and need for more space—I would buy another Accord, opting for the Honda Van.

As some one who had no intrest in owning a car but was forced to trade in my gas guzzeling suv for somthing more economic i have go to tell you i love this car its easy to drive easy to get kids in and out of the back seat and the trunk space cant be beat. my accord is a 4 cyl. but i dont find it to be slugish and it picks up good getting on the high way. ther are all the creature features i need like 2 electric plugs and power windows It was designed with the average person in mind

Avoid this model

Pretty much everything goes wrong with this car starting at 45K! You will end up spending way to much in oil then ever unless you blow the engine before notice your car has been using way to much oil. If you like checking your oil levels every 800 miles this is the car for you. If you enjoy spending lots of money on an old car this is the car for you. If you enjoy replacing a lot of parts this is the car for you. & if you enjoy having it in the shop more than you drive it well this is the car for you. If not a lot of people say to avoid this car!
