Purchased As New
Honda seemed to be most consistent when it comes to their sedans. My family previously purchased an 89 Accord and it stayed strong for 150K+ miles.
Looking for a new car we settled with an another Accord for the oldest daughter in the family to drive and learn stick with.
I, as a son in the family thought we should have shopped around a little bit more due to the fact that many of the Korean and American auto makers are starting to get ahead. But unfortunately, the oldest daughter in the family LOVES Hondas and wouldn't consider anything else.
So it was final, we bought an MT LX model.
You may wonder why I said, unfortunately.
It is unfortunate because Honda is starting to get behind.
The 2011 Accord is a refresh of the 2008-2010 model, so nothing is really new except improved fuel economy.
But compared to the competition, Kia's Optima, the competition seems to have the best bang for the buck.
The Accord sedans doesn't have a 6 speed standard. In fact they don't even offer a 6 speed trans unless you opt for the new Accord Coupe which is only available on the V6 model.
But the Sonota and Optima does have a 6 speed standard on all their models which improves fuel economy.
The 177 hp is a bit under powered, I would have liked to see Honda offer the 190hp standard for all their 4 cylinders and not just their base models.
Now, I'm just compared base models, the Accord LX vs Sonotas GLS is no match when it comes to fuel efficiency to power ratio.
177hp 5sp (23/33 mpg) vs 198 hp 6sp (24/35 mpg)
The fact that the Sonata offers better fuel economy, and more power (whether it is the 177hp Accord or the 190hp) Hyundai is still ahead.
The numbers are almost similar between the Sonata and Kia's Optima.
Long story short, don't just look at the Honda dealerships, go to all of the competitor dealerships and check them all out.
