I have been a truck guy for a LONG time. I had a Chevy Silverado before getting my Accord, and had the transmission on it go out with only 40,000 miles on it. I decided that, even though the tranny was replaced under warranty, I was going to get something a bit more economical for my trips to work, and hopefully a bit more reliable to boot. I did a lot of research, and not one review had anything substantially negative to say about the Accord. Not so much with most of its competitors. So, I went to a local dealer and test drove a new 2010 Accord. They had 2011's, but I've always known that if a dealer had a previous year on the lot, you can get a really good deal. Boy did I! I don't know what vehicle some of the other reviewers have, because mine is quiet (well, at least compared to the full sized truck I had), even up to 75 MPH. The seats are as comfortable or more so than my Silverado's were, and I am getting phenomenal gas mileage. The first time I filled the gas tank up, I put in 16.2 gallons, and had been able to get 370 miles out of it! Just about 23 MPG, and I do 90% city driving, with an uphill drive on the way home! Suffice to say, the EX-L model is exactly what I was hoping for. Fuel efficient, comfortable, great sound system, a moon roof, fun performance, good pickup, and it looks pretty sharp as well! Out of all of the other options I had looked at, this was the car that I really felt was the best car for the money, and then some! If you are in the market for this size/type car, you would be doing yourself a favor to check the EX-L out first!

The Best!

I bought my Honda Accord new & it is the best car I've ever had! I plan on driving it for the rest of my life! I've had new Toyotas (Camry & Corollas) and Honda Civic, but my Accord is THE BEST ever! Very attractive design looks sporty for a sedan, comfortable seating (front & back), huge trunk space, smooth acceleration (4-cylinder is plenty enough power), great stereo (6 speakers) and good mileage! I Love my Honda Accord! Toyota Camrys are the competition but they are less sporty, softer ride and more suited for the older crowd!

This car has been great. Bought new in July 2010. This MPG is ok, I do not drive aggressive but only get 23 MPG in mixed hywy & town, all highway is about 27. Only con is the seats are not too comfortable especially for drives over an hour and road noise, but I don't think its as bad as others say it is. The exterior is the best IMO, I own the bold beige metallic and think it looks superb. Car looks great inside and out, handels is incredible. There is plenty of interior room, but the front seats are not too comfortable... plenty of leg room fron and back. Very reliable no promblems whatsoever. Currently have 15k miles on it after 12 months with it. Would recommened it to anyone, unless you have a bad back.

Probably the best bang for your buck if you are looking for a reliable, economical, roomy, well equipped, yet still flashy sedan, you cannot go wrong with the 2010 Accord. I have the EX model (leather / sunroof / power Driver seat) and could not be happier. My last 3 hondas (1 Civic + 2 Accords) I have sold them for more than I owed. Thumbs up for sure. Thanks Mo + Sammy for a great buying experience in Tulsa.

We leased a 2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 w/navi in late Nov. 2009. We have taken the vehicle on a long road trip to Southern California, where we put over 2000 miles on this car in less than 1 week. The car is very comfortable for long trips, gets excellent fuel economy, (26mpg for the trip), and the navigation is simply phenominal!! Overall we find this car to be the best vehicle we have ever had. Our friends and relatives have also fallen in love with this car, and are always asking us to take the Honda when we go places. With all that this car has to offer, I wonder why anyone would ever buy and Acura TL?

I had a Saturn Aura for about 2 years and was in the shop 26 times for various issues ranging from the steering column, to power windows/locks, to the sunroof, and more. I had it up to "here" with it and traded it in for an Accord. I drove quite a few vehicles of all different sizes and styles and couldn't get away from this great deal. It has a lot of trunk room, which is great for all of the stuff I have to haul. But offers up great style in contrast to the functionality. On a recent 6+hr road trip, I got about 35mph! In mixed driving, I get about 25mph. I do think that the cloth gives something to desire (perhaps more of a microfiber, or leatherette in the LX-P). I also think that the grey interior looks slightly nicer than the others because of the two-tone quality. I wish the LX-P offered more variation in upgrades, like automatic lights or a self-dimming rearview mirror. I hope that Honda looks into this when continuing to develop the car. Overall, I have no major complaints. I have not been to the shop for anything yet - even an oil change and I'm up to 5,000 with about 50% oil life left. I feel as though this was a really great buy and will be with me for a long time coming.

Not what i had hoped for

I bought the 2010 Honda Accord in June and thought it was great to start with! Then the brakes went bad after 20,000 miles. Then the rear bearings went bad at 30,000 and they argued with me about it and finally convinced them to check it and they were. My biggest issue is i have been going to the honda dealership for over a year now complaining that the car doesn't always want to crank. Of course they always say that it's nothing. I have read other reviews on other sites and i'm not the only one having this trouble. I bought this car to be reliable and now i'm worried about being stranded.

First car outside the original big three I have owned and I have to say it is a fantastic vehicle! I have heard about Honda quality & value for sometime and finally had had enough with poor quality parts & design. I purchased a 2010 Accord EX-L in October '09 and have not regretted it since. This car is the smoothest ride I have ever owned , it handles extremely well and is pretty quiet in the process. The 190hp 4-cyl provides pretty decent power and the fuel mileage is excellent. I find it very comfortable to drive in this car on long trips & the interior is well laid out. Lots of bells & whistles to play with & the sunroof has been a joy to have. I feel that I am finally going to be able to own a vehicle that I am going to love driving & cost me far less in maintenance for quite a few years plus still be worth something when I decide to get another car.

Initially, a new car should be great. Six months into my ownership of my 2010 Accord Coupe V6, at 13,000 miles, here's what Ive observed. *Fast *Road performance in Ohio winters is very decent *Interior design is logically arranged *Looks great *VERY decent stereo system (270 watts and 7 speakers) Not every ownership experience is flawless though. Here is also what ive also observed: *Rattle noise from rear passenger seat belt trim piece (between rear window and air bag trim piece) Dealership padded and problem went away. (warranty) *Trim piece for carpet threshold on drivers side door slightly warped, replaced under warranty *Miscelaneious rattles that come and go with bass being played in the car primarily by sunglass holder and occasionally by rear dome light. (its minor and im picky, but for $30,000, you want some sound deadening, right?) Overall, I would purchase this vehicle again. Im comfortable in a Honda, it holds its resale value and handles in a sport like manner with a slightly stiff suspension.

Without reliability, there's nothing here

I picked an LX-S coupe to quickly replace my prior car which was totaled in an accident. Honda had a very good lease deal at that time and I expected high reliability and quality. 70,000 miles later the car still feels very solid and almost as tight as the day I bought it. However, it is also on its third set of rear brakes, has had a wheel bearing replaced, the door lock on the driver side doesn't work in the cold and it's currently in the shop because the OEM battery, less than 6 months old, isn't holding a charge. Overall I would call this average reliability, but the problem is that without exceptional reliability the car offers little else. It is noisy, performance is average at best and comfort is average at best. At the end of the day I feel as though I could have bought better performing or more comfortable competitors without sacrificing reliability. I don't regret the purchase, but I would not buy it again if I had it to do over.
