The 2008 redesign made the Accord a larger, roomier car with an immense rear seat.
Most importantly, this vintage comes with standard electronic stability control on all versions, a vital safety feature which in itself justifies looking only at 2008 or newer Accords.
Ride and handling are very good, and the four-cylinder engine is smooth, powerful, and economical.
The V6 is smoother, quiet and powerful, but gets just 21 mpg overall.
Controls remain a model of clarity and driver visibility is generous.
Try to focus on an EX, which is has a power driver seat, sunroof, and alloy wheels.
