- Good on Gas, Tight Suspension, Hot with nice aftermarket wheels
- Brake feel, Long ride comfort
Great car overall. Excellent value and quite sporty. Handles great for a car of it's size even on the iffy stock tires which dry rotted before their tread life was anywhere near up. Stock radio impressive at lower volume. Transmission shifts like a BMW's.

- Good Fuel Economy, smooth transmission, exclnt instrumentation panel, sleek aerodynamic styling
- Not enough feedback from the wheel, AC can put a damper on performance, seats sometimes uncomfortabl
I have the 2004 model of this car, which I'm assuming is essentially the same thing as the 2005 model. This car has been a joy to own. I constantly get complements, even a year later. Moreover, I still get a thrill just taking her for a spin.
Positives: The value you get for the money is incomparable. The 4-cylinder has plenty of power and I have no trouble passing on the highway. The engine is practically silent unless you rev it above 3500 rpms. Gas mileage has run approximately 26-28mpg, although its conceivable you could get 30+ without speeding. The transmission is extremely smooth and is considered one of the best in the industry as far as I'm aware. The instrument panel is aethetically pleasing and intuitive and easy to use, once you get used to it. The speedometer is large and easy to read and the tachometer is a nice extra. Of course with the high safety rating this car has garnered, I feel safe driving this car. As far as exterior looks go, it took me a while to really like this car. But as time passed it grew on me. The styling seems to take notes from a variety of high priced cars such as Lexus, Mercedes and BMW. It should be noted that this car has a very low drag co-effiicient (even lower than the Accord Sedan), which translates into a quieter, more fuel efficient ride.
One year after my purchase the car is still running great. I've had mechanics complement the car several times. With Honda's reputation for quality, I don't expect to have any major repairs for many years.
Negatives: The interior can feel cramped at times, but hey, its a coup.
I experienced some rattles in the front interior of the car, but they've either since stopped or I don't notice them anymore. When you turn on the AC, the engine stuggles noticeably and it seems to make the gearshifts less smooth. Finally, the seats are not the most comfortabel in the industry. Without a lumbar adjustment, I've found my lower back hurting after a long trip. For some people this could be a big problem if they have lower back problems. Overall not too many negatives. If you want a big car, get a big car...if you want valuer, power and a smooth-as-silk ride, get the Accord Sedan or Coupe. They blow the compact cars out of the water as well as most of their mid-sized competitors. And no, this is not a sales pitch...I don't work for Honda....I'm just that thrilled with this car!

2005 Accord Coupe
Having had a CRV, Toyota Celica and Honda Civic.
I am now enjoying the refinement of the Acord compared
to the above econoboxes.
I have the I4 2.4L engine , 5 spd manual, very powerful
for the first month or two then power drops off a touch
as engine breaks in. But for a 4 cyl, this car goes zoom
and I'm glad I didnt pick the V6, as the 4 can get me
in enough zoomin' trouble and still save me gas....read morehide
