I have owned VW Passats in the past, and considered them to be great mid size cars. When I decided to buy a new car, and started looking for a Passat. Since we own a Honda CRV, I thought I would check out Accords as well. What I found was, they are just as nice as the Passat's, more dependable, and look just as good inside and out. In addition, the cost of ownership is much less.
Every once in a while, a car manufacturer "nails it" with one of their vehicles. The Accord is certainly an example of that. Great performance and economy (a rare combination), along with comfort and a great look (inside and out).
The Honda Accord is simply a great choice.
I love this car.

The Honda Accord rides very smoothly and the handling is wonderful. And the seating is so comfortable you just don't want to get out. You feel like you driving on air. The only way I knew the tires was touching the ground was when I came to a stop light or corner.
Beautifully looking car, BUT....This cars year, make, and model has had some SERIOUS recalls and class action suits against it. Brakes will ware down very often, needing frequent brake replacement. Burns excessive oil, and has cracks in the engine that allows oil to corrode the spark plugs. The engine will eventually give out. Had the car 3 plus years. Couldn't take it anymore so I gave it up. So i am very aware of what I'm talking about. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!
