An update of the 2003-2005 model, the 2006-2007 Accord combines sportiness and all-around capability. Both the base four-cylinder and the optional V6 are refined, quick, and relatively economical. The ride is nicely firm and handling is nimble. The front seats are comfortable and the interior is well finished. Electronic stability control became standard on V6-equipped versions. Road noise is our biggest complaint.

What Owners Say

"I am truly amazed at the performance the 4 cylinder motor provides. I let a friend us it and he swore up and down it was a 6 cylinder. In addition, on long drives, primarily freeway/highway driving I have got as high as 32 MPG and the vehicle has in excess of 190,000 trouble free miles. Awesome vehicle."

TIM W., PA (2006 Honda Accord)

"Love the six speed transmission and v-6 combination. It has put the fun back into driving but with reliability and practicality. I am holding on to this car until it dies."

J B., MD (2006 Honda Accord)

"It has enough power to get rubber in third gear, it turns tightly enough to do a U turn in a two lane street and it handles like a sports car."

Anonymous, TN (2006 Honda Accord)

"Very powerful engine for its size with good gas mileage. Excellent acceleration and handling."

DOMINICK R., GA (2006 Honda Accord)

"Husband purchased this vehicle. Had wanted a used Camry. Gas mileage very disappointing. Harder ride because of the larger wheels. Didn't really pay attention to wheel size when purchasing and how that would make the ride so hard. Problems with steering in tight spots. Have had vehicle to a dealer and an independent shop, neither could find the problem. In tight spots, very difficult for either husband or I to turn wheel. Almost, as though no power steering in that situation. Makes park"

ROBERT C., PA (2006 Honda Accord)

"Acceleration and handling are acceptable. I find visibility to be a problem. Ironically, safety features such as side airbags exacerbate visibility by enlarging the front pillars. In fairness, I find this to be the case in most cars these days, not just mine.

"We have the V6 engine so it is a zippy car. The suspensions and tires size is more tuned for performance, so ride is a bit choppy on rough roads, but car handles nicely. In winter, we needed snow tires due to the lower profile all season tires. With snows, it goes well in snow."

At 130K miles, switched from Honda to GM Friction Modified Synchromesh transmission oil, which improved performance and feel. Suspension is excellent, although stock handling is not quite as good as previous VW. Cheap and easy to add factor sway bars from Acura TL, however, to reduce body roll in corners."

"This is a 4cyl Manual Trans model which provides good acceleration if you are willing to use the upper rpm range. Handling & braking are very good for a "family sedan" - not quite up to a "sports sedan" but still competent enough to have fun going around corners (good tires certainly help in this regard, as does the manual trans, which permits much sharper control than an automatic). Considering the size of the Accord, and its comfortable ride (both in comparison to a B5 VW Passat, in "OEM Sport" guise), the handling has been better than expected. (Note: good tires certainly help handling and braking, and the Accord is running V rated Michelins)."

It is exceptional on good acceleration and the amount of mileage I get on tires and brakes. Tires and brakes lasted about twice as long as the The 1997 Toyota Camry I chose because as Consumers Report gave the nod over Honda. At that time I was sorry I bought that thing CR' favored over Honda.and wished I would have chosen the Honda. The 4 cylinder Camry was sluggish and had several oil leaks and oil pump failure at about 103,000 miles. A friend also had the same oil pump failure on the same year and engine Camry as me at about 118,000 miles. I was starting to believe CR was being partial to Toyota, but CR finally admitted there was a problem with Toyota when they started having oil sludge problems. I just started back subscribing to CR. I was not happy and discontinued subscribing to CR for a few years. I'm now back to subscribing to CR."
