Honda Accord EX V6

by from Boca RAton, Fla on January 30, 2010

All I do is keep it serviced according to the book and put gas in it. It is the most reliable car I have ever owned in some 54 years.

I bought a 2004 Honda Accord EX V6 with Leather Interior. I must say I am pretty blown away by Honda's reliability and craftsmanship that they put in their vehicles. The car had around 58,000 miles off the lot and felt like a brand new car. The 240 HP V6 offers great mid range acceleration when you need it best on the highway. The leather seems to have held up at the same rate as an Acura over the years. Since buying the car I've only needed to replace a pully that was squeeling and gotten an oil change. The car is currently at 61,000 miles and I plan to drive it until the wheels fall off which could very well be 40 years from now. In short, buy an accord, it's THE most reliable car on the road, simply put.

04 Honda has been flawless

by from on November 24, 2011

I am the original owner of my 04 accord and it has been a fantastic vehicle with no unscheduled repairs, good gas mileage, good stereo, and attractive interior for the price.

I've owned my 2004 Honda Accord EX-L for 7 years now. In those seven years, it has gone almost 125,000 miles. The only problem I've ever had is the alternator completely dying at 115,000 miles. Not a single other thing. Beware though, the I4s do not have traction control and will let you spin tires when trying to beat traffic and turn from a stoplight quickly. Everything else has been flawless. The exterior styling isn't radical, but it's enough. Everything about the car feels high-quality. No rattles, squeaks, or knocks. The leather only has a little wear and there are paint chips but I have a feeling both of those are from going 50 miles daily. The I4 has plenty of power and still averages 27 mpg in mixed driving. Easily going back to Honda when it's that time.

The 2004 Honda Accord 4 cylinder is very reliable. The 2004 Honda Accord 6 cylinder is NOT reliable. Expect to replace the transmission @ about 100,000 due to a transmission design mistake. Additionally, the 6 cylinder EX has a timing belt NOT a timing chain. Expect to replace this as well. Both of these items are big ticket expenses. When we purchased the car I expected Honda reliability to be high. We had no idea the 6 cylinders were poorly designed.

Great car in so many ways, let's down in a few.

Pros. - 6 speed manual - good gas mileage with a V6 and manual - Awesome looking interior with black leather, and carbon fiber in the doors and other areas of the interior. - 0-60 of the V6, 6speed manual is rated around 6 sec. Impressive for a 3.0 litre V6. - After 3500 miles and basic oil, oil is tainted brown just a little and oil reads to the level it was filled at full, I have 106,000 miles on the car! - When you are easy on the car you feel like you are getting good gas mileage, when you stomp on it it growls and pulls! - Climate control is excellent on this car! - Sound is excellent on this car! - Seats are very comfortable! - Many more awesome things about this car to list. Some Cons: - FWD, sure great in the winter, but why doesn't Honda bring out an AWD version, that's my biggest question. - Exhaust, silenced, I think with a car where you have a V6 and a 6 speed manual, why can't I hear the exhaust some? Like an infinite? I seriously can only hear the exhaust when I go over 4k RPM and I think what I'm really hearing is the thing gulping for air at that point. - Also road noise is bad, I've been in many cars where the road noise doesn't come into the cabin as bad as this car. Further makes me know that the exhaust is really silent. - Lots of creaks of plastic materials rubbing and vibrating in the interior, took me years to get used to this. - Exterior is plain so it's not ugly but not outstanding either. Very simple look. - When it is is hot like 77F or higher the clutch has a weird feel, this feel doesn't effect performance at all though. Some people beleive this is the master cylinder, another thing I have just gotten used to. That's about it though, really outstanding car!

Though I only have had car for about a month I totally love it. I got V6 and its very powerful and the response is great. It has 46,000 miles on it and still feels brand new. I get all over about 23 miles per gallon. Sound could be better but I listen to sports talk so no big deal to me. You will not regret buying a 2004 V6

I love my Accord! It's the first car I've ever purchased on my own and do not regret it. When I get in my car everyday - I never worry about it breaking down. I do a lot of highway driving and it's comfortable and smooth on the road. Honda will be the only brand I ever own!

iThe accord is a good car but the colour is off ,I have noticed that the hood the roof and the trunk lid are slightly different in coulor. This is noticable on all silver and light coloured accords. The engine developed a slight shutter and is only noticable with the brake applied and in drive. Otherwise it is a good car.

I got my 2004 V6 EX-L coupe last December, and it is the best car buy I made so far. If you want luxury and sporty driving, this is the car to get. The seats are great, at first I thought they were a little stiff, but after a 1800 mile trip with this car I got out with no complaints nor was I overly tired (Which I had some problems with when I did the same trip with my previous Ford or Camry). Now I would not want any other seats. They support me all on sides, which turns out to be great on longer trips. The V6 EX-L drives tremendously smooth. A lot of people that get in the car are very impressed by the interior design and the comfortable drive (even though sometimes I step on it). The EX-L comes really fully loaded...and I mean fully loaded! ALL that I missed was an integrated Navigation system and a mpg calculator. Some of my friends drive BMWs and Lexus IS and brag about what their car all has, but so far I had to say: "My Accord has (or can do) that too", and even beyond. Why pay so much for a luxury and sporty drive? the Accord equals with these BMWs, Lexus and Mercedes EASILY! The V6 is, surprisingly, good in MPG. Driving normally, I get around 28 mpg, on mixed roads. On the highway I easily get 30+mpg at 70mph. My next car will definitely be an Accord (or Honda) again...but then the new model! Very surprising is the retail value. An Excellent 5 year old Accord costs around $14K, a bargain for this car!
