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.
