2008 Honda Accord Sedan

- An Acura in disguise, V6 is powerful, excellent build quality, leather and nav worth it
- blind spot at C pillar, doors shut solidly but sound tinny, center stack is a bit busy
This car is a good, not great drive. Solid value proposition and a sensible choice. The car will satisfy, but not excite. My last car was a 2004 Passat. The car "fit" me better, and while less powerful, was way more fun to drive. The dealership experience at VW turned me off, thus the Honda.
The rear pass-thru opening is smallish. Fuel economy is as expected. Acceleration is surprisingly robust. Bells and whistles abound and add to the car.
Check your driver's seat position- I have a hard time "getting fixed" in a just right driver's position- the seat is too wide for my admittedly thin (6'0" 176lbs) frame. Unless you are a large person, there is no driving cocoon.
Exterior dimensions are excessive for what should be a mid-sized car....read morehide

- Good on gas
I purchased my car in March 2008. After a few months it was making a rattling noise while I was driving, whether the radio was on or not.
My husband found out that it was the break light in the rear window that was vibrating against the window.
I took it to the Honda dealer where I purchased the car and they resolved the problem.
I am now noise free!
I owned a 1995 (new) Honda Accord and later in 2001 purchased a Mazda 626. I should have bought another Honda instead.
I will never leave Honda again!
I love my Honda and would recommend it to anyone looking for a stylish yet fuel efficient car....read morehide

- Comfortable Ride, Power and Acceleration, Quality.
In 2003 I bought my first Honda it was a EXL Coupe 4 and I bought this one on 11/01/07. I fell in love with this Pearl White 4 door. Since I have had it I had all the windows tinted and put a spoiler on it.
My son talked me into getting the Navi on it and the first time I used it it was the coolest thing I ever seen. The 3,4,6 ECO when it switches you can't even tell. I am a big guy and the ride and confort is great. I have been getting about 23.5 MPG in town and 28.5 on the Hwy. Before I bought this car I was looking at the BMW, Camary, and Avolon....read morehide

- Amazingly well-appointed car for the money, very strong, fast, smooth engine. Quiet,
- Leather seats could be a little softer, nav system directions sometimes awkward,
This is a beautiful car, and loaded with accessories you would find on cars thousands of dollars more expensive. The V-6 is worth every penny extra - the 270 hp engine is fast, smooth, and gives you extra power when you need it. Love the trip computer, but the navigation system needs some work. (The voice tells you to take the second left when you approach an intersection with a median - i.e., I wouldn't know that the "first" left would put me into oncoming traffic????). The lines of the new Accord are sleek and sexy and turns heads. A great car for the money....read morehide

- Front seat comfort
- Nav system not user friendly
Good legroom for size. Navigation system needs work; need to simplify access to common functions; need more voice recognized commands. Blue tooth poor quality. Excellent acceleration and maneuverability. Have owned SUVs for 10+ years; they were better value for the dollar.

- Great fuel economy, GPS is incredible, Bluetooth is awsome! Leather soft/comfy!
I have the pearl white, tan leather seats, and two tone interior with woodgrain. The car has an elegant and sophisticated feel to it. It definately stands out amongst the crowds. I have had nothing but praise from everyone who has been around it. Honda out did themselves with this model. Keep up the good work!
I highly recommend anyone who is in the market for a new car to purchase the new Honda Accord. I had a Toyota Camry and it was horrible! Another tidbit, the Hond Accord 3-4-6 cylinder eco drive is awsome, and the gas mileage you save from it shows!
Good luck and trust me, this car is a winner....read morehide

- value, fuel economy, large interior, smooth ride, huge trunk,
- no traffic report on the nav, no seat memory, bad APR due to the large amount of sales, no keyless
This is an unbelievable car for the money. I owned a BMW 325xi and was looking for something a little bigger and something that got better gas mileage. I looked at the Infinity G35x, Camry & Accord. The G35x was a beautiful car but loaded was around 40K. The Camry was a nice car but I thought that you got more bang for your buck with the Honda.
After looking at the cost of the cars and test driving them all I thought that Honda had everything I was looking for and more. I would recommend this car for anyone looking at the BMW 3 series or the higher end module cars....read morehide

- Good Fuel economy, looks great
- Over-stears and not as peppy as my last Accord
I bought the max'ed out white diamond pearl model. Looks wonderful with the full chrome package. Steering takes some getting used to and the GPS could use some tweaking; specifically uploading telephone book from the BlackBerry and using the voice recognition while driving. All in all a beautiful car, just wish I had waited for the 2nd year of this new Honda Accord....read morehide

- Good fuel economy, excellent performance. great fit and finish both exterior and interior, great nav
- a little rough ride. No serious cons
I traded down from a GMC Envoy and found this car to be a great replacement. The interior room is more than adequate for 4 people and the quality of the fit and finish make you feel like you are in a much more expensive car. I feel that the reliability of the Honda will keep this car looking and performing for a long time. I also found the buying experience to be very enjoyable. I had no pressure to buy, and was provided all the information I needed to make a decision, and was treated with speed and efficiency. If you are looking for a great car at a good price, this is the one....read morehide
