I bought the car for a specific reason and that is economy. Recently on my way from Fl to Ky I got 40 mpg. If you want sizzling acceleration or a lot of power then don't consider this car. It carries four people with no problem. In mountainous terrain it shifts down to maintain speed but I expected that. It's a great car.
A super SAFE car at an affordable price.

I am a two-time Honda owner. I drove an Accord for more than a decade and when it was time to retire it I decided to downsize to the Civic. Even though my Civic lacked the bells and whistles that my Accord had (sunroof, leather interior, etc.) I thought it was a great car. Unfortunately, I only had the chance to drive it for three months before it was totaled in a HORRIBLE crash. I was not seriously injured in the wreck. For this reason I will be buying another Honda Civic.

Respectable MPG's for a four seat sport compact, I have averaged 27.5 mpg over the life of the car. The helical limited slip front diff on the Si puts the power down well in traction limited situations. Handling is excellent and predictable once you fit better summer only tires. By far the biggest perk though is the wonderful K24 engine and fantastic six speed manual in the Si. Probably one of the best shifting manual transmissions on the market. The K24 has been 100% reliable and loves to spend life near redline.
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.
