- extremely fast for a honda, options you would find on a 50k bmw, handles well, gets compliments ofte
- rattles & creaks, paint will chip if you look at the car the wrong way, sometimes seems too big
Purchased As New
i bought this car in january - it was either this car or the audi a4 2.0. I chose this car over the audi because i wanted a sporty COUPE with a good amount of power. the options in this car are equivalent to those one might find on a 3 series or a4 that is optioned to the max. the car handles great and fuel economy is good, considering i drive a little more aggressively than others may. my only gripe is that the paint chips EXTREMELY easily. if you want the car, but don't want to wash it all the time, i don't recommend black. other than the paint, however, this car is a blast to drive and has features (i.e. navi, satellite radio, homelink, heated seats, dual zone climate control) that you wouldn't get for this price anywhere else in such a sporty package. a great daily driver with all the power and handling capabilities you need to have some fun on the weekend....read morehide

- Great looking, good fuel economy, great ergonomics
- Slightly rough ride, automatic when shifting is slow
Purchased As Used
I bought my car used with 11,000 miles on it from a guy who gets new car fever about every eight months. I saved about $12,000, so I REALLY love it. I had been driving a Z28 Camaro (350 hp), and the change from 10-12 mpg is wonderful. I've been getting about 23-24 mpg for most driving. I've never owned a foreign car, but I love my Honda. Love my satellite radio, too....read morehide

- good acceleration, great looking, fast!
- rough riding, PAINT! sound system
I got this car in April and after driving it for a few months, I still love it. Yet there are a few negatives. the first is that the sound system already has rattles in it. The other is that the paint chips incredibly easy. I already have 5 chips in the hood (2 from rocks 3 from BUGS) Yes that easy to chip. Also with scratches the paint will actually chip off and not just form a straight scratch... really bad. The other minor negative is that you feel the bumps, not that great of a suspension for such an expensive model.......read morehide

- Great Styling Inside and Out.
- Interface Dial is a little awkward
Finally an Accord that has style and a powerful engine the coupe has great German styling similar to the BMW entry-level and mid-level cars. The V-6 with VCM (variable cylinder management) gives you the chance to have a big engine with fuel economy - by shutting down two or even three cylinders when not in use but using all six cylinders when the occasion arises. This car is worth every penny....read morehide

- Very good gas milage, fun navigation system
- Some vibration with the speakers & hands free phone
I love this car. Driving it home from the dealership I had people turn & look, it is very striking. There are a few issues, which may be my ignorance, but I can't seem to get the homelink system to work my garage door. I also have issues with the hands free phone. When calling someone it doesn't always go through the speaker....read morehide

- Nice Look and feel, easy to use features
- blind spot on the driver side
I just bought mine and it is my first brand new car. It is also my first 6 cyl car. My friends tell me that i drive like a grandma so the power of this car is more than enough for me. I have no complaints about it thus far though it has a blind spot. I can barely see out of the small back window but it might just be because I'm short. It takes a little bit of getting used to. I still love how it handles. Unlike the luxury coupes that are out right now, this takes regular unleaded which is a big plus especially with gas prices right now. Overall, I'd recommend it to anybody who is looking for a nice and affordable sports coupe....read morehide

- Fast, decent fuel economy, good styling
- bad blind spot, auto transmission shifting rough, touchy paint
I recently got this car and I have to admit it is a ticket waiting to happen. It is very fast and manuverable on the highway. You tap the gas and you are off like a rocket. really great but the blind spot is kind of bad and going up hill it kind of shifts rough when you accelerate then take your foot off the gas for a slower moving vehicle. Mind you I have a very steep long hill near my house, but other than that I absolutely love this car. The gps is very good and car is comfortable to ride in with the electronic seat adjustmant. I definitely recommend the car....read morehide

- Style, very roommy interior, powerful V6, tight handling, excellent driving position
- Gas mileage, no real time traffic on navigation
I got this car since Nov/2007, already has 8000 miles and counting. Very good handling, should upgrade to 19 inch wheels. Able to drive 90 mph on 55 mph, gravevine on I-5, when I drove to LA. Wish this one is RWD. Gas mileage is disappointing, avg 20 mpg. But hey, my avg speed is 80-90 mph:=)), so I guessed can't complain much. The driving position is the best in its class. Remember, Honda is using its Formula One technology to build its products, so their handlings and suspensions are the best. Beside, BMW, I don't think I would like to drive any other products (Nissan Altima coupe is very good buy, but their resale value are horrible) The noise level is unacctable for this $30K vehicle. I hope Honda engineer should solve this problem ASAP. Engine, I wish they shouldn't put the cyl. deactivation on the coupe, it's actually slowing down when you try to take off. I was beaten by BMW 325i on I-5 bc of that. Otherwise, it's a wonderful car to drive to work and have some fun over the weekend....read morehide

- Great Fuel Economy, Confortable ride, Great control, Looks sleek and nothing like a Honda
- nothing really.. Maybe a little woodgrain on the dash and wheel?
I LOVE THIS CAR. I love the new look and style of this Accord. This is my first car and i have no complaints. Great Buy! Navigation system is a little tricky.
