2009 Honda Accord Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
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

"Both areas are excellent. It is an enjoyment to drive short or long distances.."

Anonymous, WI (2009 Honda Accord)

"Powerful engine, great handling, comfortable ride very good acceleration. Gas mileage is good because of the variable number of cylinders used"

Charles H., CA (2009 Honda Accord)

"Excellent handling"

Michael N., AL (2009 Honda Accord)

"Fast, precise, a motorcycle on 4 wheels"

Roger J., NJ (2009 Honda Accord)

"This car handles nimbly in traffic. Quick off the mark. Accelerates smoothly. Very responsive steering. Good braking system. Downside is that car is noisy. Not well insulated for road noise. Softer tread tires help a lot but wear out in 25,000 miles. Harder treads last longer but road noise is higher."

Reid H., GA (2009 Honda Accord)

Anonymous, FL (2009 Honda Accord)

"The acceleration from the V-6 is great. I however am dissatisfied with the ECO mode. This causes problems with oil consumption and fouls the spark plugs and then causes a check engine light error."

Charles W., AL (2009 Honda Accord)

"On my Accord EX-L V-6 "Super Coupe" I made some changes from an already excellent car. I have modified the induction (cold air intake) and exhaust (high performance port header and cat-back exhaust system). Just doing that I have gained 60 BHP at wheels, 55 FTLB torque, much quicker acceleration, much nicer growl and still kept the same mileage or a bit better. As for handling, have added Honda's High Performance suspension system and larger roll bars greatly increasing handling ability with no loss in comfort."

James E., AL (2009 Honda Accord)

Robert R., MA (2009 Honda Accord)

"Although our Honda Accord continues to operate, the large number of issues associated with this car since we purchased it new, instilled a sense of concern about its ability to properly perform reliably. The praise from Consumer Reports was a primary factor in purchasing this particular car. Buying another car to replace the Accord has not been an option for us. We are forced into using this car while we save to buy our next car. Due to this experience, we will never buy a Honda again. Consumer Reports has not failed us on any other purchase, we continue to be loyal subscribers."

I had the plugs changed and the problem appeared again just a few thousand miles later. Honda changed out four of the 6 plugs again under extended warranty and updated the computer but advised that I may need new piston rings if the problem persists.

Barney B., ON (2009 Honda Accord)

"Back seats are excellent so I'm told by my passengers. The front buckets are supportive but not altogether that comfortable. They are passable and get my approval overall. The noise from the tires I learned to put up with as they are quality Michelin and have not let me down. I replaced them with the same tire at 38,000 miles. The ride can be stiff but it is compliant for the most part and at times a little rough but on good roads it is fine. Sometimes when the road surface makes noise with the tires the radio has to be made louder to hear it properly. I wish Honda had given more thought to the layout of the little cubbies in front of the gearshift. My hands have a difficult time getting in out out of the tight spots and it is a struggle when the gear selector is in park or reverse. It makes the storage bin almost useless. Although you can fit a phone in there or a GPS, it's a struggle to do both. I've done away with my stand-alone GPS and only use my phone now but still the arrangement of this storage space could be larger and better thought out."

Since I am 5’1‿ I would have better visibility without having to use an inflatable seat cushion."

"The 2009 Honda Accord is one of the best vehicle I have every owned. Very low maintenance cost. I do not drive a lot but i drive in heavy traffic. The only major cost I have invest in maintaining this vehicle is one set of new tires in 2013 and replaced the front brakes in 2015. The other cost is for basic and routine maintenance such as oil change and other fluids, air filter replacement, and replaced battery once."

"For us, the value of the car was lessened because of the engine rebuild/recall/class action lawsuit, having to have engine work done twice. The local dealership was difficult to deal with, charging full price to replace the timing belt when they had the engine apart anyway. Honda of America got involved, but we experienced poor response, and poor customer service from the person assigned to our case, and confusing information provided. When the engine failed the second time it was deemed "not covered" by the recall, despite there previously being a problem with the engine, and the class action lawsuit being in place. As longtime Honda owners, we were disappointed with the service provided by the company to which we have been loyal."

"The only troubles we have h d with our 2009 Honda has been with the brakes and at year 8 the engine. Since it is our 2nd car and not driven often there was a carbon build up in cylinder 3 of the engine and had to be repaired. We made the mistake and did not go through the dealer and ended up paying for the repair ourselves."
