Cabin nicely designed, very comfortable, luxury level details. Awd to give confidence on iffy roads or surprise weather. Main drawbacks are outdated radio...think digital alphanumerics from the 80s...and reduced blindspot views. Very happy with purchase and recommend this xtour to those who want an accord variant.
2012 Honda Accord CrossTourStephen F - Kennesaw, GA11/25/2015
We were looking for a very functional car for my growing family, 4 kids 8 and under. This car has served us very well in that capacity. It is a mini-van missing the 3rd row. With the rear row laid down completely, there is quite a bit of room. My wife has already started to use it as her enclosed truck as far as transporting all of her things. We have the 4 cylinder engine and it is seems to be lacking in torque as it is slow off the line, but as a family vehicle and wagon, it is works fine. The biggest deterrent would be the blind spots on the car. Given the design of the hatch there are significant blind spots using the rear-view mirror. Honda compensated for this with larger side-view mirrors, but it takes some getting used to.
As reported in another review, I discovered a drive train vibration when accelerating 20-30 mph, but the Honda Dealer found a service bulletin regarding an axle design issue, and the front axle was replaced at no cost which completely solved the issue. In 20,000 miles, I have had no stalling or hesitation issues as mentioned in another review.
So you’re considering a Honda Accord as your next car. It’s a good choice—the Accord is very highly-regarded in any of its available variants. Plus, it combines good gas mileage with lively performance and plenty of interior space. For those who enjoy the experience of driving, Accords are known for their firm ride, good handling, and responsive steering.
