- slow clutch
Purchased As Used
i purchased the vehicle with 3000 miles and have not had a problem. i love looking at my car when i pass by stores with mirror windows. everywhere that i drive, i receive praise from random strangers.
this is the best car for the price. and still getting luxury value and comfort.
i wish that the original owner had a navigation system and that it was manual but i'm loving my car....read morehide

Alright so, i bought the 2009 V6 with leather and factory additional body kits last week and its a Honda, so reliability is given. looks great, sounds nice, feels nice, drives smooth, saves ur petrol budget with the VCM technology. looks great again, altho the rear could do some work. body kits are pretty. however, the main issue i faced with this car is, it looks like a sports car, but it isnt. the gear shift from N to D is sluggish. the transmission lags, it is a FWD, initial acceleration is nice but slows by a large margin at higher speeds. the car is noisy when floored and quiet when running.
the audio system is ALPINE with 6 speakers and a sub woofer. pretty impressive at first however gets annoying on acoustic notes. comparing this to the BOSE system in the Infinity G35, or the Rockford Fosgate in the evoX, this systems got a long way to go in terms of wattage and acoustic balancing.
impressive. filled my tank to full and safely cruised to about 575kms with 1/8th of the tank remaining with a combination of both city and highway driving. the VCM technology in the engine sure does save fuel in the long run as it cuts down on the engine fuel consumption at cruise speeds by only running 3 cylinders in ECO mode.
it features a similar airbag design as the sedan with curtain airbags on either side of the rear seats and front, and front airbags for the front passenger and the driver. the VSA (vehicle stability assist) performs well at corners and sharp round-abouts leaving no slip or drag at reasonable speeds. turning at about 65degrees sharp at the speed of around 100-120kmph does cause the car to slip in a linear direction due to the high momentum, but the VSA does safely catch up to it which is good. the build quality is strong with internal fenders and shock cancellation bars with a strong metal exterior. weight and low center of gravity helps stick the car to the ground but it could do with more downforce.
yes, if you are a racing enthusiast, this car will unfortunately fail to impress u as stock. lack of RWD cuts on the handling, stability and agility. if your aim to buy this car is to flaunt of its italian sports car looks, or maybe just go on a drive on weekends, it fits its mark. decent handling, smooth and safe ride, relatively agile as compared to the sedan. the BIGGEST drawback (which i admit i dreaded to find out) was the transmission. horrible would be an overstatement but sluggish would be an under. the clutch is slow, the transmission is stiff, no paddle shight, no triptronic gear (it has steptronic, meaning 1-2-3-D). if ur not going to race, drive is a pleasure.
the leather and trim is nice. the back seats are spacious, ample head and leg room in the front but decent at the back. being rarther tall (6'2ft), i dread the day i would have to sit at the back.the front seat gave me a pain in my lower back after driving for 3 hours. the central console, too clogged up with buttons (i still dont know what A-select is and im lazy to read the manual). however, the interior is clean, spacious, utility focused (with room to keep ur Pradas and Guccis), finally, a top mounted handbrake! nice grip and feel of the steering wheel, gear knob is too rigid and LED display is hard to see during the day. wish it had a push-down accelerator than a press-front-top.
so, to sum it up:
Handling: nice (omitting the fact that its not RWD
Exterior: drop dead pretty with the Honda body kits
final note: if u want to race and have enough cash to blow on mods.............go for another car in this class. this one is a pure style icon as it is.
hope this review helps....read morehide

I was at my Honda dealership recently looking at swapping Civics when I thought I would test drive the Accord coupe (since I was on the lot.) After that drive, all I could say was 'WOW'. I couldn't let it go! So, I made the jump up in class that day from Civic to Accord. This is a spectacular vehicle! It has great handling and power. Beautiful leather package with the metallic accents just speak 'class'. I wake up every day excited that I get to drive this amazing vehicle!...read morehide

- Fun to Drive, Good power, Good price, looks great
- nothing that would stop me from buying this same car over all others
Purchased As New
Had my car for about 5 months. Have nothing but good things to say about it.
Cylinder Management gives you good gas mileage if you want to drive it like a 4 Cylinder, but v6 power always there if you want to have a little fun.
I have nothing but positive things to say about this car. Give it a test drive and see if you agree.
PS: try to V6. The fun factor more than makes up for the price difference over the 4 cylinder....read morehide

- Best-in class styling and Acura-like build and feel
- Fuel economy not as good as expected-may still need the engine to be "broken in"
I just picked up my dark gray 09 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V6 Auto (no nav) last weekend. Put 500 miles on it this week and could not be happier with the decision. This car is rock-solid, gets lots of compliments and is not "lost in the parking lot" like so many other models these days. Build quality is excellent, the car is steady and shure-footed on the highway, performance is outstanding with the V6 automatic (regular gas is a benefit these days as well). Overall, got a great deal here in FL, and the competitors pale in comparison (Altima Coupe was "cheap" feeling and not nearly as expensive-feeling)....read morehide

- great looks, spacious for a coupe, smooth ride, great acceleration, handles well.
- Paint has begun to chip off near the edges of the front and rear bumper.
You won't believe how many second looks this car gets. Ofcourse, I bought it for the looks but the fact that it is a Honda Accord, sealed the deal for me. Best selling car for over a decade and sleek body, can't go wrong.
