- Lots of power, cool looks
- Too expensive, uncomfortable

This car is nice to drive. Quick handling and loads of power. We are talking acceleration as quick as a Mustang GT but with a lot less engine noise and a lot more refinement. But that's where the good ends. Like the Mustang,t he price is in the stratosphere and
the value just isn't there anymore. The front seat is liken to a torture chamber. I mean, what is up with that head rest? It's like something from the Spanish Inquisition. Overall ride is fine but road noise is very present. The quality of plastics is way below what I would expect form Honda and no where near as good as I have in my 2001. The car is considerably heavier then my 01 and feels it. It is taller and you sit higher then in older Honda Accords. It is a nice car, but not nice enough for me to plop down 30 grand. This Honda is a drive by wire with no direct connection between gas pedal and throttle body. But you really can't tell. All controls work great for driving.
steering and acceleration are top notch. The console, though, is a nightmare to navigate, necessitating you taking your eyes off the road to do anything. You MUST set everything first before driving off. It is too complex and goofy to do on the fly while driving. Maybe after a year or two with the car, it will become intuitive, but at first look, it's a pain in the butt. Well, after driving it for a while, I decided to keep my 01 and keep looking....read morehide

Car is way overpriced, there are many other cars out there that are $10,000 cheaper that produce way more power give way better mileage and that are sportier. For example the car I actually bought a 2011 mustang v6. My car produces 305hp and gets 19 mpg city / 29 mpg hwy not to mention the $22,000 price tag. Not only the mustangs but there are others as well that out perform this accord in every level. 2011 camaro, 2011 challenger and the list goes on so If I were you id reconsider purchasing this car unless you?re a soccer mom that likes to go fast and throw away 30grand on a really horrible car....read morehide

- Nice styling, spacious interior
- poor fuel mileage, rough ride
Purchased As New
Purchased the 2010 EX-L V6 M/T in June. The shift points seem low, I guess this is an effort to save fuel as going 25mph, I am in 4th. Going from 4th to 5th is a bigger gap and you have to exert a little more pressure to get the stick to 5th or 6th. Between 1 - 4, it is seemless and between 5th and 6th it is seemless. The horse power (271hp) is there when you need it. When going over man hole covers, pot holes or brick roads, you can feel it, but normally on a sportier version, this is normal. I do feel that they could shrink the car 6 inches all around and there would still be adequate interior space. Honda needs to add air contioned seat backs and lumbar controls. My braking is fine, although it is harder to slow down with the parking brake than I am used to. I do wish that the rear turn signal lights were amber and that there were no frame around the glass on the doors, Honda should put a rubber strip on the doors as standard to protect from dings by other cars. I wish the tuner came with HD. Definately get the mud flaps and cargo mat...read morehide
