While still a fine, competent car, the Accord is losing ground to newer competitors. Braking, ergonomics and fit and finish remain impressive. But engine performance, ride quality, accommodations, and interior quietness aren't outstanding.

Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.

Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.

Owner Reports

Worse Better
Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Satisfaction Owner Satisfaction To learn about satisfaction, CR has collected survey data from our annual survey on more than half a million vehicles. Our subscribers provide great insights into their satisfaction by answering one simple question: If they had it to do all over again, would they definitely buy or lease the same model? In addition, respondents also rate their cars in six categories: driving experience, comfort, value, styling, audio, and climate systems. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Paint/Trim

What Owners Say

Loose exterior trim or moldings

"Plastic housing in the front right wheel well popped loose and came off while driving on interstate. It could have caused quite an accident; fortunately it did not. Had to replace both sides in front to maintain safe usage"

"The paint on the horizontal surfaces of the car (hood, roof, trunk) has completely oxidized. First the clear coat peeled and flaked, then the black pigment. There are large patches that have peeled down to the primer. It's a shame really. The car runs great (aside from a recently developed transmission leak), but it's an eyesore. I can't justify the cost of a paint job on a 17 year old, high mileage car, so I'll be replacing it soon---most likely not with another Honda"

Chris T., IL (2000 Honda Accord EX 3.0-L V6)

"The paint job is horrific and we notice the same on other dark color Honda from this time frame. The paint continues to corrode so that what was once a shiney black car is now mostly matte with white areas mainly on the front hood, roof and trunk. Also rust around the tire well"

"The clear coat began to disintegrate about 3 years ago. It gets worse every year. the first 8 years I had the car I had to park it outside. Now I keep it in garage and get a wax job at car wash once a month. It doesn't seem to prevent the clear coat from getting worse.

"I bought my 2000 Honda Accord in 2000. It was brand new and the color silver. First mistake because it never looks clean. Since I didn't have it garaged until it was ten years old, the paint began fading really fast and rust started popping up everywhere, esp in the under-carriage area. Had to replace all the brake lines, just about everything under the car. And it just went down from there. But the interior held up really, really well, but it does fog up in the winter months, no matter what I do. Everything around the doors need to be replaced; they're all cracked. The trunk's hood is not aligned properly, so it gets really dirty in the area. If it was worth it, I would get it re-painted in a different color, but it's engine components are starting to break down one by one and I'd rather get a new car. But I haven't had a car payment in over 10 years, it has very low mileage, and would last forever if it would stop breaking down!"

"Original paint (Argentine green) had a silvery tone to it. I've been told by a Honda dealer that these silvery paints popular in that era are no longer used because the silver in the paint would melt and damage the paint. So paint is in bad shape. So far rust has no set it. The car is so old it's problematic to fork up the money for a paint job."

Normal routine brake wear

"Honda told me I needed new rear brakes at a routine oil change and check in June 2019. I double checked with a tire dealer in July and they said brakes OK. Then a few months later when I had doubts, I checked with the tire dealer and they did a measurement and said they needed replaced. Also replaced the rotors, but they did the whole job, not piecemeal like Honda does, so I was happy, even though I went back to tire dealer to have the pedal adjusted to my satisfaction. I'm only 4' 10" so I need the pedal adjusted a little higher than normal. (I can't find the paparwork for the brake job so don't have a date for it."
