Its large and comfortable - even at 6'3" 225lbs. Great for road trips. The stick shift is fun and takes the "appliance" feel out of it. The car is still sturdy and reliable like a well-made appliance. I'd compare it to a refrigerator with the water and crushed ice on the door. Just a smart buy all the way around.
Quality, comfort, low-cost, enjoyable to drive.
The first week I got the car the tire pressure light came on. Now it's jerking when pulling off as well as when coming to a stop. The ride is wobbly and there are chips and dents in the paint that looks like it may have been covered with some type of filler to camouflage the imperfections. I was so excited about buying my first car that I may have over looked important details.
The Honda Accord is one of the most well-rounded midsize family sedans. It receives high marks in a number of different factors, including comfort, performance, reliability, and affordability. The Honda Accord is completely redesigned for the 2013 model year.
The 2013 Honda Accord seats up to five people and is available in a few levels of trims that appeal to different drivers. The sedan comes in LX, LX-P, EX, and EX-L trim levels while the coupe comes in LX-S, EX, and EX-L trims. New for the 2013 iteration is the Sport trim - it includes bigger wheels, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a power driver seat. Each other trim comes with different packages of features that focus on driver and passenger experiences. New features for this model year include base LX models set up with Bluetooth connectivity, a USB input, and Pandora integration for smartphones. Additionally, the new HondaLink connectivity system integrates Honda Accords with audio streaming, social media applications, and other apps.
Otherwise, feature-level changes are minor compared to previous year models. Standard across all trims include a suite of convenience-focused features commonly found in most vehicles, including front and rear cupholders, remote trunk release, and audio and cruise controls on the steering wheel. In-car entertainment includes an auxiliary audio input, AM/FM stereo, six total speakers, and sensitive volume control.
The 2013 Honda Accord is a budget-friendly, family, mid-size sedan that maintains its status as an efficient vehicle with a variety of trims and feature packages of entertainment and performance. In this new iteration, the Honda Accord builds upon its reputation by upgrading its strong suits: strong performance, outstanding fuel economy, and precise handling. Due to its smaller size, the 2013 Honda Accord is noticeably less bulky as well, allowing for tighter handling.
The Honda Accord has added power- and efficiency-enhancing technology to its standard engine choices. The LX and LX-P sedan trims come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that takes the place of a conventional automatic. An upgraded version of the same engine is available in all EX trims to ensure it has leading horsepower, with optional upgrades to a 3.5L V6 engine. The Honda Accord's impressive fuel economy make this vehicle great for commuting and other daily uses.
In the 2013 Honda Accord, the vehicle is slightly smaller than previous iterations, yet stands as one of the most spacious and accommodating midsize sedans in its class. Despite the Accord's slightly smaller dimensions, there is still plenty of legroom for a comfortable drive. Specifically, Honda has upgraded the interior design to be cleaner and more organized. Notably, noise is reduced thanks to the 2013 Honda Accord's noise-cancellation systems and improved aerodynamics.
