Purchased As New
I just turned in my 2007 Accord V6 lease vehicle and bought a new fully loaded Accord. This time around I really had my eyes set on a comparably equiped 3.5 Altima. However, not a single one to be had in the local area. Also had my concerns regarding the CVT tranny over the long term. The Nissan dealership(s) were pretty bad. The Honda dealer was accomodating. Very pleased with this car for the money. Drives better than the 2007 although the Accord exhibit more road noise than some other sedans at highway speeds. However, those other vehicles were also $10K more and/or ran on premium gas. I can live with the Accord. The Navi is the very best feature. Great integration with radio, and climate control. Questionable fuel economy rating as I found with the 2007. However, it is a V6. It does runs on regular unleaded gas. This car has an engine optimizing system so I hope this works as claimed and helps. Hope the reliabilty of this car is like my 2007. Not a single repair with the 2007 other then normal maintenance. As some others have cited the seats in this car are noticably firmer than past Accords, but no complaints. I got the seat well adjusted and it will help maintain my good posture. The interior is nice. Seating is spacious and so is the trunk for cargo. The audio system sound nice. Improved over the unit in the 2007. This car looks nice. Is easy to drive and is easy on my wallet. Every sedan I looked at has some trades off. Just depends on what you can and cannot live with or without. I got a decent price discount, a few accessories for free, a good finance rate, the first three month's payments waived. Then there's the Federal sales tax deduction. As a total package, the Accord works for me.
