2008 Honda Accord Coupe

- Looks great, fun to drive, decent gas mileage, lots of gadgets, smooth ride
- the ride is a bit noisy
I purchased this car on 6/7/08 and am having a great time driving it. Heads turn when I pull up at lights, people have honked at me giving me thumbs up, which is just absolutely great. The car has a pretty smooth ride though I do think it's a bit noisy on different road surfaces.
I had a hard time finding the car. 2 different dealerships told me they had the car but they never could get it. I finally found it two weeks after looking and finding it myself. I think I got a great deal on it.
The V-6 w/ navi w/ leather seats comes loaded and I added a bunch of additional accessories - the remote engine start, side body molding, day/night mirror, cargo hooks, cargo net, door edging, wheel edging, splash guards, nitrogen in the tires, and lo-jack and wheel locks.
I had a 1992 Honda Accord Sedan, that I just donated and this new model is far more superior. I held on too my Highlander which I'm parking in the driveway to drive the '08. Love it!
I love this car, I love driving it it handles well and it looks great!...read morehide

- Old fashioned. Honda's in NA are old style not leading edge. Cost of extras
The navigation system on my 2007 Accord is totally out of date. The maps are missing major roads, as well as many side roads (which they consider unproven). I recently took a trip from Alberta to Montana using the navigation system to guide me and discovered when I got there that the system cost me hours of extra driving (not to mention the extra fuel). And, equally annoying, if not more so, after gouging you for the purchase of the GPS in the first place, they want to charge $310 every time you want to upgrade your navigation system. After three new Honda's I will shop around for my next car....read morehide

- Stylish, Comfortable, Navi, Smooth Higway Travel
- If roads are in bad condition you feel every bump (clumsy), noisy interior, huge blind spot
Love the car...but i tend to be critical...here i go...
ok i found alot of cons...its a love hate thing. I wish the styling from the back end was a little more attractive....all the other views of the car are amazing. 4cylinder has little to no punch going up hills, im averaging around 20-22mpg but 95% of my driving is in the city.
Passenger side seats should be power in EX-L. Not a big fan of the suspension in the rear. The city i live in is under alot of construction and its seems as if i feel everything on the rear wheels. But when the roads are smooth i feel as if im driving on glass....interior is noisy.
I'll admit its stylish...quirky almost...
Interior is very comfortable....love the navi......controls are a little bit out of reach from normal driving positon....I think they were thinking most would use the steering whell controls or voice commands..
Wish the armrest was designed more like the older modles. Two levels is better than one with a sliding tray. The AUX plug is burried...should be on the dash.....limited center storage due to masive electronic consol.
Blind spots are bad....adjust those mirrors quick!
ok here is my last beef....the change drawer is GONE! I loved that feature...lol
After all that I still love the car...it is amazing...i just hope the manufaturer takes notes and improves...read morehide

- Car looks awsome, excellent stereo, very comfortable
- 4-cylinder is a bit noisy at start up, gas mileage is not as good as hoped
I recently puchased a black EXL-Navi 4-cylinder, and am so very pleased with the car. It is extremely comfortable, and the quality is outstanding, the leather is also high quality, i do however need to fix a part on the passenger rear seat (excessive leather). The navi is complicated and you must read the manual to understand it. There are a lot of buttons on the center console, but i take it as a personal challenge and still really love this car!...read morehide
