"My car is a V6 Accord. The pickup on this car is amazing! I'm a 73-year-old woman, and have no problem merging into traffic on busy highways, which, at one time, was a bit daunting for me! As far as handling goes...tight curves are a breeze! It is amazingly stable! This car is11 years old, and seems brand new! I've done all the maintenance suggested by the manufacturer, and have been totally happy with it for all this time. Hopefully, it will be my last car...but if I'm capable of safely"

JOANNA R., OH (2005 Honda Accord)

"Since about 200,000 km we have had to top up the oil between changes. Acceleration is not as peppy as new. Rear stabilizers make noise on cornering and don't work that well but we don't think repair is worth the expense."

ELEANOR Y., ON (2005 Honda Accord)

"Although not BMW quality, my Honda Accord handles extremely well, especially braking and steering. I wish, however, that the suspension were a little softer, soaking up more bumps and creases in the road."

"I bought this car in early 2006. The leather seats are super comfortable and super adjustable, including excellent lumbar support. Love the heated seats in cold weather. I do have one noise-related issue. The Active Noise Cancellation system stopped working several years ago. This means that when the engine is running in economy mode (3 cylinders instead of 6), there's a significant vibration that resonates through the eardrum. Some passengers are extremely sensitive to this. There's a code you can press on the radio buttons to reset the system, and that worked for a while, but it no longer works. I believe there was a Honda service bulletin on this problem, but my car is long out of warranty. Due to the age of the car I haven't been willing to shell out a few hundred bucks to get the ANC system replaced."

"With approximately 120000 miles on the vehicle, I have had no major repair expenses, and I have followed the owner's manual for service (thank you, CR, for saving me tons of money compared to the service the dealer wanted to do!). It's a good overall 4 door sedan for commuting. With snow tires on all year (I drive less than 5K/year, so I did not spend money on a second set), it even does fairly well in winter weather."

"This car is 13 years old and going strong. Issues for repair have been minimal without having any "break the bank" work required. The car still looks good with only a minor cosmetic issues on the interior (drooping headliner). The rear seat has only a handful of deep scratches in the leather, not bad considering a 130 pound dog claimed that seat for ten years! People are often shocked when I tell them the age of the car. Solid & Dependable and still looking good at 200k+ miles."

Ride is so-so due to light weight of car, but light weight = great fuel mileage. I love the car in every way except the rear struts failed and had to replace wheel wells? in front and rear, and the carburetor. Still, I'd buy it again in a second.."

"It is our second new Honda Accord. It has been a joy to drive. It is an easy extension of our own bodies. We have a five speed manual and enjoy it. We are anticipating advancing ge, so our next car will be an automatic. The radio started malfunctioning a couple of years ago and we put in an after market radio. The main clutch and helper cylinder had to replaced It has had recurring brake adjustment issues. The Engine has begun to use oil. The air bags needed to be replaced. An airbag sensor later malfunctioned and had to be replaced. We have owned three Hondas over the years and this one has had significantly more problems with reliability than the others. As a result, we will probably not buy another one. It was far from a lemon, but we are not happy with the decrease in reliability. The best value in this car was how fun it was to drive. the worst was the reliability."

Anonymous, TN (2005 Honda Accord)

"I can honestly say, in 114,000 miles the car has vastly exceeded my expectations in reliability and dependability. One wheel bearing replaced at 80,000 miles, an air conditioner recharge at over 100,000 miles, and normal maintenance. I have always used synthetic oil in this car, and still no leaks, doesn't burn oil, just an outstanding car in respect to value."
