2007 Honda Accord Sedan
There are 5 user reviews for the VP 5-Spd AT trim shown below
- dependable and safe in a collision
- a little too much road noise
Purchased As New
My wife and I owned a 2007 Honda Accord until recently when it was involved in a collision. During the three and a half years we owned the car, we only experienced one minor issue, when the battery died. We put 65000 miles on the vehicle and then were run into less than a mile from home. Even being struck head-on at 50 miles an hour, the front crumple zones did there job and saved us from everything but some minor scratches and bruises. We love Honda vehicles and would recommend them to anyone considering buying one....read morehide

- Great fuel economy and performance.
- Instrument panel not very exciting.
The Accord has great response if needed when accelerating but the fuel economy is good if you drive sensably. I am very happy with this car.

- city 20 mpg,great power,solid quality, quit cabin
- harsh ride,road noise, A/C is disappointing
FIRST 5000 MILES GAS MILAGE AVERAGED 18 MPG. NOW GETTING ABOUT 20 MPG AND BEING A VERY CONSERVATIVE DRIVER IN SMALL TOWN DRIVING, I'M A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED. AFTER NINE MONTHS STILL NOT ACCUSTOMED TO THE HARSH RIDE AND ROAD NOISE. FOR A FAMILY SEDAN HONDA SHOULD HAVE A SOFTER SUSPENTION. THAT
STIFF EUROPEAN SUSPENTION BELONGS TO HIGH PERFORMANCE SPORTS CARS, NOT A FAMILY SEDAN. AFTER 45 MINUTES DRIVING THIS HONDA IT GETS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. NOT FOR LONG TRIPS.
OTHER WISE THIS CAR IS BUILT SOLID AND SHOULD LAST MANY YEARS . BUT FRANKLY AFTER NINE MONTHS OF OWNERSHIP, I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING OF TRADING IT IN FOR A MORE COMFORTABLE RIDE....read morehide

- It looks good but the maintenance cost is hidden.
- Maintenance fee is high and they charged double for the same problem.
Last September 7, 2006, I found that AC was not cooling and I heard a noise like leaking Freon gas, so I fixed it at Honda service center.
However, I heard the same noise again after that, so I brought it back and asked to fix the problem. A service repair told me that that was a leaking hose problem, so they charged me $198.03 for replacing hose and labor. But the first time, they charged $159.98 for recharging Freon gas and dye test. I totally paid $358.01 for AC repair.
I don�t understand why I should pay? If they had found leaking problem as the first visit, I wouldn�t have paid for labor fee and leaking Freon gas. I have checked every maintenance schedule for 15K, 30K, 45K, and 60K miles. But those can�t prevent this kind of problem. I feel like maintenance is useless. For example, in 30k maintenance schedule, even though the break system checking was included, but they just looked at it and they didn�t replace it. I paid for break pad and other stuff. That�s why I feel like maintenance is useless.
I expected to pay maintenance fee to prevent this kind of problem, but it is not. The service repair told me if I don�t do maintenance well, my car won�t be last long.
I think my car will last long with all kinds of problems....read morehide

- Fuel economy, handling, peppy, interior
- Ride could be softer, jerk in first gear, jerky brakes
A great car and I am very happy with it. Got a great price too at $ 18,500 on the road. I find the accelerator and brakes a little too sensitive. A light touch shoots the car forward and a light touch on the brake slows car jerkily. Good acceleration. Interior is well designed and thoughtful, especially the bottle holders. Good mpg and I got 35 on the highway. Very smooth engine and soothing engine sound. Styling the great especially from the front. The rear looks a little awkward and ungainly. Tail brake lights on the trunk lid is not a good idea. Trunk space is reasonable. Seats are firm and hold you well. Ride is a little rough for a family car. Could be quieter, especially in highways....read morehide
