I purchase a 2013 Accord Sport on 10/05/12...Exterior styling was what attracted me to this vehicle, once I drove it, it took 2 hours for me to take it home. Fuel economy is excellent, I have only used Regular Unleaded and it fills up with $37.00 and my highway mileage was right at 35 mpg, city 28 mpg. (compared to my other vehicle Premium fuel only 20mpg highway, I am thrilled. The back-up camera is a great feature, the interactive screen, being able to set up everything from how long you lights are on when you lock the car to at what speed the door lock will automatically lock and unlock. For a base car like the Accord Sport, it has as many gadgets as the Accord EX had in the previous years. Best buy by far. Give it test drive.

VERY VERY VERY few complaints about this car. I have always owned GM cars and then went to Toyota. I have a 4-Runner and now the 2013 Accord, and they compliment eachother well. The Radio sync's flawlessly with my Iphone and I use Pandora every day. They Sport body is great, not the quickest car but pretty nice for a 4cyl. Dual exhaust is unnecessary but looks cool and the trim is great! I am 6ft 6in and the interior is extreemly comfortable, people can sit right behind me. The CVT transmission is really smooth, but when the econ button is on, downshifting isn't that nice. Not really getting anywhere near the 30+ MPG, and I do a lot of highway driving. The black interior looks great, but is HARD to keep clean. Overall this is a great 'get around' car and makes my 30min commute much nicer. The little changes they made from the 2012 is absolutly worth it! I love the 18in wheels, but I think that is only available on the sport.

My wifes 350Z was on its last leg. We had heard the Accord was a very dependable car and well built so we decided to take a look. The new 2013 is amazing. We chose Black with the two tone leather interior. 8 Air Bags, 360 watt Sterio, lane change avodance, back up camera, right turn camera..Bluetooth for safer use of your cell phone.. We felt like we got a good deal on it so we bought it and could not be more pleased with the fuel efficiency, handling and with the new CVT transmission. If your in the market, want a dependable car that rides great, quiet, and fuel efficient, but has all the goodies of a cadillac, check out the new Accord, you will be impressed.

Accord V-6 with manual tranny

After driving a civic for four years and using one tank of gas a month (I work full time from home) my V-6 Accord seems like a gas hog. But around town, I get just about 22 mpg -- as advertised -- and 28 on the road. In my humble opinion, Honda does not make enough of its Variable Cylinder System, which is a kind of super-overdrive. Push the Eco button and three cylinders are turned off. (Read about it on Wikipedia.) Otherwise, it's the hot rod I never had as a younger man who required a decade to get through college. (The 10 years included Army, marraige, kids, divorce & a goof-off year in Europe.) I've only let it out in first and second gears so far and it is breathtakingly fast. (I've nick-name the dark red Accord "Red Witch" because it's wickedly fast. And ,yes, I stole that from Game of Thrones.) Only thing missing: the huge rear window on the Coupe desperately needs its own windshield wiper.

Loving the Accord

This Accord EX-L V6 with navigation package is the family's first Honda and certainly not our last. We are avid Ford truck buyers as dairy farmers needing 4x4 for fieldwork and payload utility for work but were desiring a refined, roomy, compliant and upscale affordable family sedan with outstanding passing power and extraordinary ride for highway get aways and frequent long drives into the city. The 4 cylinder only 2013 Ford Fusion disappointed us and in needing a potent V6 in our primary car, the new Accord was the clear choice when replacing the family's 2010 6 cylinder Fusion SEL. The Accord EX-L is highly luxurious while not being saddled with anything as complicated as a MyFord-type system such as on our '10 Fusion and my new 2012 Ford pick-up truck. This factor in selecting a new car outside of another Ford was part of the reason for selecting the 2013 Honda sedan and a major decision of each driver in the household using it nearly daily. Everything about the Accord is straightforward and the dash layout is clear, simple, safe and easy-to-use from behind the wheel while keeping your eyes on the road. The stereo controls, optional Navi (Honda's best-in-class navigation) and entertainment stack keep everything at close range, unlike those we have had many problems with on other brands. Honda has mastered the infotainment system. Other likes include the lack of blind spots (plus standard back-up camera, a blind spot monitoring system and taller for '13 windows), unsurpassed quality, highest reliability of any and all vehicles we have ever driven and the outstanding MPG one would expect from a 4 cylinder, but in a powerful V6. Not a squeak, not a rattle, nothing out of place, the 2013 is the most well thought out car in its segment and even above and beyond its luxury division Acura. We are sold on Honda and the EX-L V6 with Navi has everything imaginable. My wife likes the new 2013 Accord coupe (from photos, auto shows, professional car reviews) but the '13 sedan was the only body style for the 2013 available at our dealership when we were in the market. It is nice having the choice of a four door, two door and the AWD Crosstour, but the FWD sedan offers exactly what we were looking for and for less than we expected to pay.

After owning a Honda Accord for twelve years, it was time to purchase a new one. I am very pleased with the restyled and redesigned Honda Accord. Lord willing my new 2013 Honda will run as well and as long as my previous 2001 Accord. I am pleased with the overall quality, power, and styling of the 2013 Accord. I would highly recommend the 2013 Honda Accord to anyone looking to purchase a mid-sized sedan.

I bought a new 2011 Accord. I loved it. I then gave it to my son at the Univ of Michigan because I wanted him to have a safe, reliable automobile. It made sense to get another Accord, given my experience with my 2011, and so I did. The 2013 EX-L is a beauty! Leather, great sound system, backup camera and blindspot (right side) camera very useful. The car drives well and gets very good mileage. I'm sold on Hondas.

Better than expected 2013 Honda Accord Sport

Marketers are always trying to find new words and phrases to raise the hype and anticipation for new products. Manufacturers are always trying (sometimes not) to make their products better. Honda has a great reputation as far as quality and reliability but has really not been considered a "sports car" producer. The new redesigned 2013 Accord-Sport breaks the mold. The true dual-exhaust, 18" wheels, front & rear torsion bars, paddle shifters and tastefull spoiler did it for me. The car handles like no Honda I've ever driven and this is my 9th. The bonus is up to 35 mpg! How can you go wrong? The "Eco" button allows you to achieve the best mpg however when you want to be a bit more aggressive just deactivate and you'll be suprised how "sporty" it can be. The car is beautiful, well thought out and has great lines. The interior is well appointed without going overboard however I really wish they had an option for leather interior. I understand the price points and you have to move up to the EX-L version to get that. The blu-tooth integration is actually usable, adds to safety and the audio clarity is great. You don't sound like you are on a speaker-phone. All around it was the result of much research for quality, reliability, mpg and style.

A car I feel safe and secure to drive

Back in 1979, I bought a first-generation Honda Accord that had a stick shift, and the car felt safe and secure to drive, you know, the rock-solid kind of feeling. Over the years because of a growing family, I went through a variety of large vehicles, such as station wagon, large sedan, SUV, mini-van. Now since I became an empty-nester, I sorely miss my 1st-gen Accord experience. To satisfy my need to re-experience my prior Accord experience, I bought a 2013 ninth-generation Honda Accord EX with automatic transmission (so that my wife can drive it if she needs to). This is my first vehicle equipped with the low aspect ratio 55 tire. As soon as I optimally positioned myself in the cockpit, the prior wonderful Accord-driving experience all came back to me. It felt safe, secure, controlled, comfortable to operate in the cockpit. My wife especially appreciated the quietness of the cabin and the great audio listening experience. The small 4-cylinder engine is quiet and powerful. And it is GREEN. During the first 500 miles engine break-in period, I drove mostly on surface roads and I checked to figure out that I got a 29 MPG city driving. The engine is so small you can actually see a good patch of ground under the hood. The room under the hood is so spacious that Honda engineers even put the catalytic converter under the hood (so you never have to worry about those catalytic-converter-stealing thieves). Wow, I am really happy to own this 2013 Honda Accord EX. And I dare to admit it is really senior-citizen-friendly.
