- You can't find a better value and comfort for the money in any Luxury Car.
- Small but..trunk can only be opened by driver compartment latch or key farb.
I have had just about every higher end vehicle over 35 years, BMW, Volvo, Lexus etc. I'm finished paying over $40K for a car comparibly equiped.
Just purchased a 2008 Accord V6 EXL w/Nav for my wife to replace her Volvo S80 and a 2008 Accord EXL for myself to comute to work (120 miles per day). She loves the car with all of the bells a whistles (std) especially the blue tooth phone feature.
My Accord ($24K) replaced a 2007 Toyota 4 Runner LTD ($40K). No challege in comparison for MPG and comfortable ride.
Great job Honda on the new look. I'm telling all of my friends!...read morehide

- 25mpg overall with 268HP - GPS is right on- handles like a dream - a pleasure to drive
- None to date
The appearance is subdued and resembles styling from BMW & Lexus. The Accord has more interior space and is bigger than the 5 Series BMW & Lexus 350 and many other family size vehicles and is $10,000 to $15,000 less comparably equipped. The EX with Leather provides a luxury feel and fit and finish that are well above average. Spacious back seat space.
Lexus and BMW require Premium Fuel whereas Honda Accord runs on 89 Octane. The VTEC engine changes cylinder modes flawlessly, the only way you know it's doing its job is when the ECO light is lit on the dash.
Many of the standard features on the Accord are optional on other vehicles. Excellent safety features.
You can't buy a better car for $30,000! Honda offers high mileage leases and cost saving maintenence programs....read morehide

- Great handling, power, luxury, comfort, quality and fuel economy.
- Haven't found it yet.
I bought the top-of-the-line Accord, the EX-L V6 with Navigation. It feels quite solid, luxurious, and very enjoyable to drive. It is made of quality materials that puts a smile on your face when you sit in this exciting car. This model is loaded with everything a fussy driver would ever want.
I ordered the White Diamond Pearl with Ivory interior. It looks fantastic, specially with the beautiful wood trim. I am very, very pleased with my choice. This V-6 engine is quite fast, quiet, smooth and powerful. Just step on the gas and it responds immediately, very assuring when you need this unbelievable power. This car is surprisingly quite economical on gas too. With mostly city driving, I got 23 mpg. But the big surprise was today, when I filled it up after mostly highway driving and got 31.2 mpg. Bravo Honda.
This car is very reasonably priced when you consider that it comes loaded. This car comes so loaded that the only option I added was mud guards. This car puts many luxury car models to shame. It is better made, and beats all of them in price by a huge margin.
Enjoy life and buy the best quality car for the money....read morehide

- very good car for what you pay for, best design ever for Honda
- Can't complain really, "noises" are very low and normal, no cons
This 2008 accord is one of Honda's best car and design, why complain of "noises", "Clunks", "Performance", when it has plenty of everything, every car is still moving parts and nowhere close to perfect engineering like we think, Honda is never been making super sports cars, only trully effecient cars you can depend on whith most of the things you need daily, it's better when your a Master Technician and Engineer to explain what each car is made for without guessing what you think of this great car, don't confuse super sports car with effeceint family car, it's a TOTAL diffrent subject and this car involves so much technology with one of the worlds best effecient compact computer system from the materials so called "Recycled Parts", miracles....read morehide

- Fun to drive; comfortable drive
- Some road noise
I have owned this since they were first released and I am very pleased with the Accord sedan. The overall riding experience has been great even with some road/wind noise when no audio is playing. The noise is only noticed when no music is playing. I enjoy the navigation system, audio system, and the comfort of the seats very much and I would rather drive this anytime/anywhere. I am satisfied with the overall handling of the car... brakes well and drives comfortable even on rough roads. Love it!...read morehide

- As good as any comprable German make
- Limited turning radius.
This is my first honda. After driving several BMW and Mercedes Cars, I wasn't sure if I would be happy with an Accord. Now that I own one I realize how built this car is. Good job Honda.

- The gadgets are awesome -- Very simular to that of the Acura RL or Lexus GS
I believe that this car represents the best dollar for dollar value --- I was going to buy a Lexsus GS-350 -- The so called luxury items and the Lexus label were not worth an additional 20K. I owned 84' Honda Accord for 16yrs and it was still running well when I sold in 2000

- Cheap price for all the options, Hondas resale value is unbeatable
- needs a coin holder
Have had a few hondas the last one being a 04 accord ex 4 cyl with leather,navigation etc. etc. I bought my wife an 08 accord loaded even with a few dealer installed options, rear view cam,alarm etc. When I traded my 04 in with over 80,000 miles on it I got over half what I paid for it brand new. You try that with any american car built it wont happen. And if you want all the options that this car comes with in a eurpean badge you will be paying $50,000. As far as road noise goes Mine is unnoticable although I didnt drive the 4 banger because my last one vibrated a little too much while stopped with the a/c on. The 268 hp in the 08 is great its at least as fast as my 07 hemi dodge ram although I havent tested this theory "YET" I like the car very much all the way around and have a blast everytime I get behind the wheel....read morehide
