2007 Honda Accord review: Our expert's take

By

Though the current Honda Accord was introduced in 2003, and there haven’t been many changes since then, the model is aging gracefully. One version in particular: the Accord EX coupe, which was, at its introduction, one of my favorite cars.

And, after a test of a 2007 model, it still is. The test car was a top-of-the-line model with a 3.0-liter, 244-horsepower V-6, up four horses since we last visited. Honda’s six-speed manual transmission is one of the best in any front-wheel-drive car; the combination of engine and transmission is powerful, quiet and sophisticated, and still gets acceptable mileage given the level of performance — 21 mpg city, 30 mpg highway.

The V-6 Accord EX coupe gets leather upholstery standard, and the only option is a navigation system, which the test car had. Though Honda doesn’t list it as an option, they sell the cars with the nav system and without. The price of the test car was $30,095. If you can live with a cloth interior and a spunky 2.4-liter, 166-horsepower four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission, a base EX coupe costs just over $23,000 with shipping. I like the extra power and the extra transmission gear in the test car — and I really like the leather and the nav system — but do I like them $7,000 more? It would be a tough decision.

The rear seat of the coupe is usable, but kids fit best. Front-seat room is fine, and the bucket seats are excellent. Instruments and controls are well-placed, but I still haven’t warmed up to Honda’s audio controls. Honda’s navigation system, always among the best, just gets better.

On the road, the coupe’s big 17-inch tires and wheels help the handling, and the ride is better than you’d expect. The Accord EX coupe loves winding back roads, but it’s fine on the interstate, too.

Since this coupe was introduced, it has been joined by a few very worthy competitors, including the Ford Mustang — you can get a well-equipped, V-8-powered GT for the price of this Honda — and I’ve been impressed by the new Mitsubishi Eclipse, too.

But there’s something so familiar and friendly about the Accord EX coupe that keeps it at the top of my list. Fun, fast, dependable, comfortable, pretty — I couldn’t ask for much more.

Base price: $22,650.

Price as tested: $30,095.

EPA-rated fuel mileage: 21 mpg city, 30 mpg highway.

Details: Front-engine, front-wheel-drive coupe with a 3.0-liter, 244-horsepower V-6 engine and a six-speed manual transmission.

Honda Work Horse

I bought the car in New Hampshire with 200,000 miles on it and drove it to Northern Michigan and back with no issues. 1100 miles one way. 33mpg. Not bad for a B-lot car. It's the 2.4 Ex-l model. The leather seats aren't the greatest for long trips. Some may find them comfortable tho. The have seat cover with gel padding that i will buy. The factory Nav is outdated but adequate. I do like the trip computer. The ac compressor sounds like it is on its way out. One of the cooling fans doesn't work. Which is making the ac suffer at a stop. But other than that seems like a good purchase. Nice to have confidence in a vehicle to put some miles behind it. I travel for work so I'll fix some mechanical quirks and test that Honda reliability. It's a new England car so has some rust. Will probably buy a southern one next time. Has hail damage. So not winning any beauty contest. But I like the Gray color.

Great car!

Overall, I love the car. The interior cloth roof began to come down but vc all I had to do was staple it back and it’s fine. The radiator fan gave out 2 times it seems, it was replaced in 2013 and I just replaced it again 2022. It wasn’t expensive to replace since I did if myself but mechanics wanted to charge me $500, doing it myself was $160 The gas mileage is amazing! The power from a 4 cylinder is shocking, love it! Love the leather interior, the drivers side seat seems to be worn down a bit but that probably because it was used so much. I have 309,000 miles and it’s still going strong, I do all the maintenance on time and try to keep it in good condition. Hopefully can get 500,000 out of it!

Ah leather and a sunroof, perfect.

The 2007 Honda Accord EX has gotta be my favorite car to drive, and I have had a lot of vehicles in the past. So far good luck with mine, odometer is currently at 166,798 and she still hums down the Highway at 110 with no issues and handles like a sports car.
