2008 Honda Accord Coupe
There are 16 user reviews for the EX-L 5-Spd AT trim shown below
- great looking vehicle, reliable, great 4 cylinder, good fuel economy for such a big coupe
- road noise is high
Purchased As Used
I bought this car used for my son to drive. Since he was not quite 16 when I bought it, I have been driving it back and forth to work. I can't say enough about, very reliable, excellent acceleration for a 4 cylinder, and highway mpg in the low 30s, all in a package that looks great. In Michigan, with our lousy winters, the front wheel drive has been a pleasure. You can't go wrong with this vehicle!...read morehide

- Reliable, Service has been good, Many compliments on this car still!
- Not a quiet car, new tires seem noisier than the old ones, not Honda's fault
Purchased As New
I bought this car when the new body style came out, I had to order mine, paid full price :( However it has 50,000 miles on it still looks great, garaged and no major mechanical issues. Has been the car I expected it to be and plan on keeping it atleast another year.

- Comfort, Smooth ride, user friendly radio and sat system
- Poor gas mileage, Hard to clean back window
Would I buy this car again some days yes other days no. I have had some problems with car that you wonder about all the hype of this car. I have had the check fuel cap come on 3 times since I have bought the car and taken it in to dealership to find problem and no luck. And Honda seems like it is more my problem. Also please make sure you look at this if you have this car or looking into this car. Check all bumpers. Where the lights meet the bumper there is no space and it is very tight so tight that is has made the paint bubble and peel due to the fact that the space is not there to allow movement when you drive so it rubs. I have had to take it in to have the Honda body shop fix and repaint. I have seen this on several other honda's of my make. So just make sure you look at this carefully....read morehide

- Great looking, good mileage
- stereo in my mom's civic is better and it vibrates
I am happy with everything in the car other then the stereo is horrrible It only cranks up to 40 and when it gets past 30 it starts to rattle and the bass tube in the trunk makes it sound like the speakers are blown out.

I've had the car for 4 months. I have the 4 cylinder and am very happy with the performance and ride. I think the car is a great value. I really enjoy driving it and think I made a great decision to buy it. I did not buy the navi for the extra $2k+/-. In retrospect I may have bought it as a the portable navi I have is as good as they come but I don't think it's near as nice as the factory install and I believe the blue tooth for the cell phone in the portable gps is not as good as the factory equipped one. It seemed like alot of money at the time....read morehide

- Hot new apperance for '08,Climate control,leather seats with heater,very good power,handles well
- Seats could be more comfortable,mileage could be better ,tires are noisy,ride is a bit bumpy,stereo
I am in love with the new model for '08 and had to have it! The heated leather seats,dual climate control,sunroof,cruise control down to 25 mph,acceleration, and handling are all great. The ride at times seems a bit bouncy or rough? Seats could be more comfortable? Windows are to high to rest my arm on the door? Stereo isn't too bad but speakers(especially in the back) do vibrate some. The Michelin tires are a bit noisy? The four cylinder has great acelleration! Haven't been able to get the gas mileage that they say it is suppose to get yet? All in all I am happy with it and would recomend it!...read morehide

- Excellent handling .. Great Power .. Nice heated seats .. Nice stereo , XM radio
- road noise ,cancelled with stereo :) not as economical as it should and could be
I have owned some 30 plus used cars from diesel Volvos and Puegots to Le Cars and almost every other used car and truck you can get for 10 grand or less ... I studied and read and looked for 5 months and I decided on this car and my only regret is that I took 5 months to get to this car ..The same day that I took this Accord out for a test drive I tried the SI Civic Coupe first..It was nice and it was certainly powerful but when I closed the door and sat in the Accord Coupe its a different feeling .. Maybe 5 years ago I would have jumped at the SI but the Accord Coupe Automatic was just a better fit in so many areasIts a pleasure to drive .Not as quick off the line as the SI Coupe but then you dont have to shift 6 speeds either . The heavier Accord feels so much more solid .The engine has the same HP as the SI but being heavier its a bit slower BUT I mean a BIT.. If your not shifting the SI on the peaks and pushing it the Automatic Trans in the Accord slips through the gears so smoothly and makes up for the weight to power ratio for most drivers .. Handles really nice .. Corners well .. Nice stereo actually excellent stereo with a subwoofer and XM .. Comfortable leather seats that were my first heated seats .. I dont know how I made it without them and now I am hooked ..
Blind spots though ..Set your mirrors well .. My second night I almost backed into a tree .. Whew .. Other than making me a little leary about the blind spots and double checking the car will make you feel like a better driver .. You feel part of an excellent driving machine ..
I have put 2000 miles in a month .. Wet roads , dry roads , snow , day and night driving .. No rattles or squeeks .. MPG solid every tank at 27 MPG .. I drive a lot of highway and was hoping for 30 plus but maybe as it breaks in a bit more .. But I am really happy with the car and I have not felt buyers remorse ..
I am confident that my feelings and experience with my new Honda will only get better and better :)...read morehide

- Exterior looks, Heated leather seats, dual climate control, large trunk space
- Huge blind spot, must get used to this; no average MPG calculator
This is my first honda... I know I made the right choice. The belize blue is the best color IMO, I have had the car for 2 weeks. I was also looking at the Altima Coupe, but the standard features on the EXL was 1-2K cheaper than the Altima. With the Altima, you have to buy the bundle packages. The leather seats are very comfortable, lumbar support is adjustable (for those people who complain about their backs hurting). The only negative thing I have to say is that there is a huge blind spot, I get nervous switching lanes, especially to my right. I have to get used to this, but it is taking me longer than I thought....read morehide

- This car handles, good firm ride ! Great buy !
- 4 cyl takes getting used to but once mastered is np !
Traded my 07 Civic coupe(which was great) for this 08 EX-L Accord coupe. It's like a larger heavier Civic, not to mention it's good looks! Firm ride and firm interior. All the gadgets too. Some sacrifice on fuel economy but I'm getting 22 mpg with less than 250 miles on the odometer. I'm expecting 24 combination once it's broken in. I have to comment on the braking system. It's one of the smoothest, most efficient, fast stopping braking systems I have ever come across...Power seat has the most available comfort positions I've run across in any car as well. Love the telescoping tilt wheel too. I also got a fantastic trade in value on my Civic and I know I'll experience the same with the Accord! This is an all around best buy !...read morehide

- Absolutely nothing
Best Car ever....one of my friends have an 07 camry and other had an 07 altima which was traded in for a maxima. My car wins hands down. The best investment yet. At first I wanted the altima coupe but after test driving the honda I fell in love and been in love ever since. This car not only turn heads but it has people stopping and staring and following me on the highway to see what I am driving. Everyone is amazed that its a HONDA. I got a great deal on mine and cant complain. Honda out did themselves I absolutely love the car from the premium sound system to the xm radio....read morehide
