Can't beat a Honda!

I have owned this car since 12/04 and now have 70,000 miles on the car. Zero repairs. Just installed new tires, battery and brakes. That's it except for routine maintenance. The navigation system is excellent, much better than on my newer Mercedes. These cars are comfortable solid performers. Excellent power with the V6. Regular gas. Average 22 mpg in town and 28-30 on the highway. It is really hard to imagine that anyone NEEDS more car than this. Ride,handling and comfort are more than adequate. With reasonable care I can believe these cars are good for 200,000 miles or more.

Honda Solid

I traded my 2011 Subaru Legacy (aka: a piece of junk) for the 6-cylinder Accord with less than 49k miles. Compared to the Subaru that was built not to last the Honda is rock solid and feels bullit proof. I have owned several Hondas prior to this one and one cannot find a more reliable vehicle. Love the powerful engine, sporty feels (especially with the moon roof open), terrific stereo, frigid A/C, tight handling, large trunk, roomy in the back seat, numerous airbags, and key fob that opens all the windows at once. Wish the car got better MPG and had a USB connection, but that's the only improvements I can think of.

I bought an 05 Accord LX 3.0 in 2007. This car is made of great quality. I also have an 06 Cadillac, but the quality isn't as great as Honda's. Never had any serious issues with it, praise God! Just changed the steering pump and had a safety recall for the power steering hose, which was actually damaged, but the dealer replaced it without a charge. The car is a good car though. If you love avoiding spending money on repairs, you should get an Accord.

This is my 25th car but my 2nd Honda. I have a 05 Pilot with 145k strong! The 05 accord (v-tec 4) 5speed is a beast for what it is, 0 to 60 in 9 sec! I love the handling & performance on the road it gets up and goes. Great gas mileage as well. Yes its a little over priced so make sure find one that is priced fairly. I bought mine with 153k on it and it was in great shape and still runs like new! Very reliable car! If you need a good pre-owned vehicle this is your best bet!

i was referred to cars.com and found my 2005 Honda Accord Coupe, the dealer, Goldies Motors made my puchasing experience very easy. I completed the sale of my car in less then 24 hours. There was no need to look anywhere else. I could never be happier.

05 Honda Accord V 6

by from Las Vegas on November 6, 2012

I've owned this car for a few years and had never let me down. I just kept up on the oil changes and this car will run forever. I put in about 50 k a year and it runs the same as the day I bought it.

This is our second Accord and this one is awesome. The transmission on the EX 4 cyl. is really amazing. You would think it was the bigger 6 cyl engine it is so smooth. Long distance travel is not just great but even at higher freeway speeds it still gets 33 mpg. Fit and finish on this vehicle is perfect. Comfort is great but I'm over 6 foot and it can be a little tight for me but wonderful for the rest of the family. Handling is terrific and better than earlier models. Value as always is incredible with a HONDA!

Great car, classy and reliable. I love this car. i cant wait to drive it every day. i get 29 mpg low which is great at 4.00 for gas. i love the look of this car sleek design, looks even better tinted. i have one complaint of this car which in its self deals with there is no AUX input, so your gonna have to spend 100 buck to get one installed. I've gone thru 3 cars in my 20 years of life and my Accord will be mine until it dies. The best car I've ever been IN or Drivin.

Awesome car! I love it and can hardly stop driving it. I bought it off of here about a month ago and cannot say enough, drivs excellent, great design, very affordable, and for only about 80,000 miles (for the price I got, around $10,000, you can pretty easily talk it down to about the same). I don't think I could have found a better car for the same price. Don't think twice if you're interested in this car.
