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.

Anonymous, (2006 Honda Accord EX 3.0-L V6)

"At about 18000 miles the brake pedal would vibrate when coming to a high speed stop. On a steep down grade, the vibration and shaking became so severe, the steering wheel shook rather violentlyl. The dealer put new pads a rotors on the car. After about 20000 miles, the same problem returned. I took it to an independent brake repair shop. New pads were put on and rotors turned. After about 18000 miles, the vibration and shaking returned but not as bad. I think Honda cut back on costs on this car by reducing the pad sizes and the rotor quality. We only use the car for around town now."

"The EGR valve at the dealer cost about 3x what it cost at the local auto supply store. Bought mine at the local auto supply store and it looks, and works, just as good as one from the dealer. Saved about $180 doing this. Easy install too...was able to do it myself"
