Purchased As New
I purchased my Accord new, just put 750 miles over a few weeks. The Accord 2010 runs great, engine switches gear without hesitance; it has solid, determined steering wheel that makes me feel confident in controlling the car. Equipped with 225 size tires, the Accord EX-L runs very stable on road; in recent heavy raining days I had it rolled into a big hole filled with water while commuting on freeway, the car jumped upward to the left but maintained straight, quickly back to normal driving conditon; for safety concern I like this very much. Cruise control works great, resume prior set speed quickly. Meter dash board is well displayed providing quick catch of needing information. Regarding MPG, I had 20 miles/ gallon during 1st 300 miles commute; hopefully it gets better.
The worst part is to experience hardship of noisy cabin and bad seat. Noise comes from the tires rolling on road, depending on speed and road condition noise can be heard more or less. My EX has active noise cancel system, but I'm not sure the system is there, noise is heard clearly almost at all times. Someone said the seat of the Accord (08-current) is made by evil, I totally agree. Mine is leather, but it's not soft at all; it is even thin, flat, just better than plain wood. I had to buy a memory foam cushion seat to make my driving more comfortable. Another draw back, and I believe it is worth to mention is the cabin is too roomy for average Asian driver like me 5.5 feet; distance from the steering wheel to elbow supports is somewhat far, I cannot control the wheel by one hand with the elbow seats on the support, my arm is too short ??? I think most Asian ladies will find the cabin too large for them in having confident of total control after sitting down on driver seat that ...is made by evil ?!!!
The car is very new, but I start hearing brake sound at stop position when slightly releasing brake pedal. I'm not sure what will happen in the future. I read such complaint in people review. Bottom line, I feel safe and confident while driving the Accord from point A to point B, like a soldier drives a tank. I stay alert in control. That's the Accord. It trains me that attitude, of a soldier. And as a soldier, the drive is not for fun, or at least comfortable, the drive is for a fight. And now, I got to find more way, or tool, to make my every day drive more fun, more comfortable; I want to relax while driving because there are too much pressure at work and ...at home these days.
