While this iteration of the Honda Accord remains an excellent midsized sedan overall, gas mileage is not as good as that of the previous model. This Accord still has a generous backseat, however both the four- and six-cylinder versions are more powerful than before. Stability control was made standard in all trim levels and crash-test results are impressive. We tested both a four-cylinder LX-P model and a six-cylinder EX-L.

What Owners Say

"Love having the V6"

ROGER P., NY (2008 Honda Accord)

"Really like the manual transmission. Would consider buying another Honda Accord, but they do not offer manual transmission on their higher end models"

Anonymous, TX (2008 Honda Accord)

"The car shudders or vibrates at a certain speed and certain RPM during acceleration."

Anonymous, OH (2008 Honda Accord)

"The Brakes have been terrible since new and so far the dealer or factory has no solution for it. the rotors warp and pulsate at highway speeds, especially in the mountains. I should have invoked the lemon law."

Anonymous, AZ (2008 Honda Accord)

"Although this vehicle has decent horsepower, the acceleration and handling is mundane."

TED C., CA (2008 Honda Accord)

"I like the very responsive v6 engine. The sedan handles surprisingly well. I have had no braking issues since I replaced the brake pads with ceramics. The velour seats are comfortable. I wish the transmission 2/3 shift was not so sluggish."

E P., CA (2008 Honda Accord)

"The acceleration when needed is always available"

Anonymous, NJ (2008 Honda Accord)

"Handles very well - precise steering with minimal input/effort."

Anonymous, MA (2008 Honda Accord)

"The four cylinder engine is supple and more than powerful enough to transport 4 adults and luggage. The driving experience, especially on hilly roads and in curves is first-class and you feel in control. Even on snow and ice this car is better than others, even with normal tires."

PETER M., NY (2008 Honda Accord)

"I would probably enjoy having the extra power of a six cylinder. Handling is great."

FRED W., OH (2008 Honda Accord)

NICK-MAUREEN S., OH (2008 Honda Accord)

If not for this fix, I would not recommend this vehicle and would not rate it as buy again. Since this fix, the vehicle is perfect."

CHRISTOPHER D., FL (2008 Honda Accord)

"This model has a four cylinder. When you accelerate hard the motor is noisy and seems to have a lack of power. Also, given the four cylinder engine it should get better gas mileage. The car handles nice and drives nice."

"I love my Honda Accord. I bought it new. It's a very dependable car, easy to deal with, handles very well for me in all weather especially getting up hills in snow. Others are stuck and I'm driving. It's comfortable with good heat and wonderful A/C. It runs so well with just regular maintenance. It's not expensive to operate."

"I’ve had the vehicle for over 10 years with no expenses other than normal maintenance. Incredibly reliable. And the V-6 has provided outstanding performance"

"High quality rise and comfort almost on par with friend’s Acura TLX. Great handling, brakes, and acceleration for a 4 cylinder engine."

"Good value. Camry is better, Lexus is the best."

"Car style still looks up to date. Like that Honda does not change style of cars drastically so older car looks out of date. Very powerful since it is 6 cylinder good pickup for highways."

"The car is very safe and everything works perfect after 10 years"

Robin G., CO (2008 Honda Accord)

"Never had a problem with this car other than the airbag recall. The only expense have been standard maintenance. The overall driver experience of this car is better versus my 2012 Hyundai Sonata. BUT, the 180 HP 4-cyl. in this car is under-powered and I hate this car because of that, and the reason I bought a Hyundai."

"I have not spent a penny on repairs in the 10 years I have owned this car. I do an oil change when the car indicates it is due, about every 9-10 months and other maintenance as listed in the manual. I have not even replaced a light bulb."

"The Honda Accord is an exceptional value. My Honda is ten years old and has only had to have one repair outside of normal wear items, e.g. brakes and tires."

"The value is very high. Reliability is the biggest factor."

"That I still have my 2008 EX-L Honda Accord V-6 attests to the value and superiority of this car. I purchased this car after having owned many larger cars [Lincoln-Mercury cars]. I expected a period of adjustment for me with the EX-L, but the transition was effortless. I bought it fully loaded with the exception of the back-up camera and had the dealer customize the roof and install the trunk 'spoiler'. I paid Honda's top dollar for it...with no regrets. In fact, when given a loaner [2017 Civic] while servicing, I HATED the touch screen controls which necessitated taking my eyes off the road compared to my car's easy reach controls. Gas mileage has been predictable with city at 22 and highway at 27. I've maintained the servicing schedule and with the exception of needing new tires and one major service -- piston rering, it's been a terrific car with comparable appearance/profile with the best of newer cars."

"has over 110000 miles minimum problems"

Tom D., RI (2008 Honda Accord)

"Other than routine maintenance, I have only paid for one needed repair; a power door lock switch. I understand that Honda vehicles have what are referring to "sticky" switches which seem to get worse during the cold, Winter months, and then loosen up in the Summer. But other than that one repair, my Honda has been fantastic as far as value is concerned. I have saved so much money over the years by not having a vehicle that needs expensive repairs (or even small ones) and is the main reason why I have kept the vehicle so long. I am actually dreading purchasing a new vehicle, because I am used to having such a reliable mode of transportation and any vehicle that does not hold up like my Accord will certainly be a disappointment."

"Nice style, looks good and paint is very good."

CARL G., TX (2008 Honda Accord)

"Factory leather used on Honda Accord is very poor quality. Carpeting is poor quality and not installed well. Interior design and styling has cheap feel/look & does not hold up to average wear. USB & phone jack poorly located - should be in dash & not in armrest - if kept in armrest, should be opening toward back so back seat passengers can use jacks."
