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.
2012 Honda AccordDerrick Weaver - Cleveland Heights, OH08/02/2015
The name Honda has been synonymous with quality in the foreign car market for years and for years to come. There is nothing negative I can say about my car. In the short span of time I've had it much joy and happiness has come into my life from a car that I count on with low maintenance and few worries.
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.
