Honda makes SAFE, dependable, well-built vehicles that get great gas mileage! The Accord has plenty of interior and cargo space. None are built for luxury, smooth ride or quiet cabin (which are the only reasons I traded in)... But the Accord does have great interior and cargo space. The benefit: Having a vehicle that can take some wear and tear from kids, and you don't have to stress over expensive repairs. Parts are priced well... but mainly because they rarely need reparing!!
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.
Nice manual V6 coupe at a reasonable price
2012 Honda AccordMichael Smith - Wilmington, NC08/10/2015
If you want an affordable manual (6 speed) transmission with a peppy V-6 engine in a two-door coupe, this may be the car for you. The EX-L line is generally pretty well built (though the 2012 has a bit more plastic than my previous 2004 EX-L V6 coupe) and the gas mileage is 3 mpg less (on long trips). But, it uses unleaded fuel, gets 30 mpg, handles well (though the larger wheels with the nitrogen fill make it a bit bouncy on choppy concrete roads such as I-95). The 2012 has a smaller rear window view (need the side mirrors) and the trunk is slightly smaller (and no cargo net). The fold down rear seat is much better than the 2004. The controls of the radio/media system are a bit backwards, but you can figure them out easily.
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.
