- Hard ride, seating is uncomfortable, poor gas mileage, wind noise
Purchased As New
In spite of the apparent quality and stylish looks we have to agree with others about several things.We just drove back and forth to Florida in our Accord bought in November. It was our first long trip and others are definitely right about the uncomfortable seats. Wow! I may need a back adjustment. It doesn't get to you till you have to ride about and hour or so.
Our mileage also wasn't up to what is advertised. The first half of our trip we got between 23.6 and 25.1 mpg. The send half was a bit better at 26.9 to 29.4. This is with the 4clyinder and not sure if wind and using AC was a factor? Also the wind noise was very noticeable on the highway. We had the dealer look at window sealing and so far no better. Not what we expected for a $28K car. This car seems heavier and larger than our other Accords and so maybe that's why mileages is so poor?
We had Hondas before , but I have to agree with with others that this seems to be no better now than even domestic competition and at the higher Honda cost. I'll be driving the '06 Saturn we usually use as a winter daily driver. It's seats are better than the Accord for my back, and no road/wind noise with better gas mileage. My wife will need a new car next year, and we will really shop all brands next time.
