20,000 mile update

4 cyl, leather EX-L. No nav. Nothing to fix or adjust when first purchased. No issues at all after 20,000 miles. We put a lot of in-town as well as long distance miles on this vehicle. Our latest trip of 2,000 miles averaged 38 mpg (70 - 75 mph). My best full tank on a trip has been 39.5 mpg as I measured it. Honda's on-board fuel mileage readings are about .5 mpg higher than I measure. A steady 55 mph yields 42 mpg on country road trips. During the winter, we get about 22mpg on very short in-town trips (fewer than 2 miles to work). Summer in-town driving is about 28 mpg. It gets to 32 mpg quickly if we drive more than 6 miles. There is some wind noise at speed, but little other noise. This is a very quiet car. No rattles, no squeaks. We don't use the voice commands or a lot of the other electronic features. The sound system is good. And the phone syncs nicely. The seats are reasonably comfortable on long trips, Our last trip included 14 hours in the car in one day. The CVT transmission is problem free. No stuttering or vibrations. And even with the 2.4, this is a quick car if necessary. Handling is agile. Steering is light, but direct and there is no wandering on the highway. There is a lot of room in the back for any sized passengers. Lots of trunk space. And the way we drive it, it is usually 8 to 10 thousand miles between synthetic oil changes (per Honda's on-board diagnostics). And it does not burn any oil between changes. I would buy this car again in a heartbeat. This could be the most economical car I've ever owned. With mileage and comfort this good, why buy anything smaller, a hybrid, or anything else?

First time Honda buyer, Accord LX

This is the first Honda I've ever owned. I bought it certified pre-owned and have put 3000 miles on it so far. General opinion on it is that is is a very well thought out car. The biggest appeal to me is that it is American sized and has a lot of room that some of its competitors lack. Styling inside and out are conservative yet handsome. The car is an LX model, and while it may not have as many gadgets as some, Honda did not skimp on the equipment on its base model. My complaints are few and don't detract from the car as a whole. I wish the trunk opened more when popping it open as it barely cracks open. I wish there was a key hole or opener on the trunk itself because the only way to open it is by key fob button or the inside floor lever. Also, the inside floor lever is placed a little too far forward for me to reach when sitting in the seat. Some audio controls are buried in awkward menus. The speakers are weak and is the first thing I'm upgrading in the car. Finally, the back door quarter window catches you when opening the back door. Again, these are minor complaints. Overall, the car is quiet, plenty powerful, returns mid to high 30 mpg regularly, and is surprisingly spry for such a big car. I am confident in my purchase and look forward to driving my Honda for many years down the road.

I chose this accord because I was looking for a reliable vehicle and I liked all the toys that came with my purchase. I was happy to see that Honda got smart when they took into account what buyers want in state of the art amenties as an example : lane watch, front end detection alarm, mirror directional lights, LED head lights, etc etc. Plus good looks overall.

I recently purchased a used 2014 Honda Accord with about 13.5K miles on it from Avon Auto Brokers in Avon, MA. Troy was my car salesman and he was very laid back, and answered my questions thoroughly. It was a smooth process and I didn't feel pressured or haggled. A pleasant experience. The Accord runs great and I'm thrilled that I will have a dependable car for years to come.

Everything I liked about my older 06 Accord and more. Engine is more powerful handling is super, new steering is electric and very responsive and the alerts like lane and front crash and cam work great. The phone hookups take a bit more time, had to upgrade my iPhone (3g) to talk to the car, but my wife's 3gs worked fine. The difference between my old (only had 22090 at tradein) is mostly one of sophistication in interior and exterior design and better execution. I did get nav this time and it is much better than the garmin and maps programs I was using before. Well worth it in my opinion. Most everything in this car can be reprogrammed to suit preferences or many options can be turned off. The car is so efficient without the econ button pressed that I leave it off. I do like lane change and collision warnings and you can adjust or turn off if you like. In sum, glad I bought another Accord.

I have owned or driven many different brands. This Honda is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned (gas mileage, exterior looks, function, quality finish.). It amazes me how great this vehicle is for the price I paid. WOW. I have had the car for little over a year, 32K miles, no issues whatsoever. Quite interior. If I had to nick-pick something to improve it would be 2 things. First the foam on the driver and passenger seat (outer rim foam). Be nice not to slide around (a bit), I personally prefer a denser foam. Second, the Goodyear tires are good, but I think the car drives better with Michelins (we have 2 Accords).

Third Honda, my second Accord, first one was with the inline 4. Nice upgrade to the V6 - in the sport mode it is a blast to drive with the paddle shifters. This car comes with all available features. I am not into all of the technical aspects (voice command etc) but I do like the ease of selecting audo/menu choices from the steering wheel. I get a lot of great comments on the tiger eye pearl color. The only issue for me is that I am 6'2" and I am a bit of a glove fit in the cabin space with regards to the ceiling height. But other than that great car. Mileage has averaged around 25 mpg for me and I am very satisfied with that - only about 25% highway driving.

Recently purchased two 2014 EXL's. I am a GM guy but The Chevy Team dropped the ball by not stepping-up and backing their product (2007 Chevy Avalanche) I bought the Accords because they have been made in Ohio since the mid eighties and are consistently on the top ten best car lists and are best in class with retaining their value. I wanted a vehicle that was good on gas and would hold it's value. I like the exterior styling because it's has classic lines and just enough chrome to be appealing not over the top. The interior is also well done and ergonomically pleasing. The Accord 4 cylinder is competent and road, wind, and engine noise are minimal. The upgraded audio system is very nice as well. The only areas I see for improvement are the seats could have a little more cushioning, and the low beam headlights could be brighter. I would rate the Accord a 41/2 out of 5. I did not care for the Dealer Experience at two of the three dealers we visited. There was a carnival atmosphere where bell ringing and clapping accompanied every sale that was made. How about we just shake hands and call it a day. I hope you read this Chevy Team and try and reclaim me as a customer. Nice job Honda USA.

The accord looks great, drives nice. The touring model's adaptive cruise control made me believe that cars would be able to drive themselves soon. The following distance is so great that other drivers jump in between and cause the automatic breaking to take over. I shortened the distance to short, but that ends up with a three second following distance. I usually drive giving about two seconds so three seems excessive. All that's needed is automatic lane corrections, and the driver (me) becomes obsolete.
