This version of the Honda Accord stands out as a comfortable, roomy, and efficient midsized sedan. It's also nice to drive and easy to live with. When matched with the smooth continuously variable transmission, the standard Accord's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine squeezes out an excellent 30 mpg overall and 40 on the highway. That's better than most smaller compact cars and even some subcompacts.

What Owners Say

"Very please with CVT transmission, acceleration. Handles well"

DAVID D., FL (2014 Honda Accord)

"This car is a V-6. It accelerates really the point where you need to hold onto the steering wheel with both hands as their tends to be some "torque steering". You need to make sure your are in control when you accelerated hard."

Anonymous, VA (2014 Honda Accord)

"The Honda Accord EXL was bought with 5000 miles on it as a demonstrator car. I am retired now but have had a 1997 accord previously with 131,000 miles accumulated. The 2014 Honda handles well and gets 35 mpg on a trip with cylinder shutdown. This car is much more luxurious than the previous Honda, it handles well and the V6 has plenty of power with decent gas mileage. Both cars have been very reliable."

DAVID L., VA (2014 Honda Accord)

"Some hesitation when going from a stop to a slow forward speed. Suddenly jerks forward. Some improvement when I complained and a 'fix' was put in but still annoying."

Anonymous, PA (2014 Honda Accord)

"Super smooth, fast acceleration (I have a V6 model), and extremely comfortable on long and short trips. The handling is firm, sporty and exceptionally good."

TOM C., NC (2014 Honda Accord)


TOPPER C., MA (2014 Honda Accord)

"Acceleration is very good. Turning radius and road feel could be better."

Anonymous, MA (2014 Honda Accord)

"Sometimes when I'm decelerating and get down to about 10 to 15 mph, and then step on the gas to accelerate the computer doesn't know where to put the gear so therefore it's between gears and I step on the gas and nothing happens. This is happened many times in the past. I've taken it to two different dealers and they can't figure out what the problem is."

JAMES T., CA (2014 Honda Accord)

"This car replaced a 2002 Volvo, S-60. It's not quite as good in seat support/comfort or road handling and control."

RALPH W., CT (2014 Honda Accord)

"It takes too long to decelerate! I anticipate having to stop - say, at a red light ahead - take my foot off the gas, but the car keeps going & going - taking several blocks to slow down and stop. I spend my driving time applying the brakes. After taking my foot off the gas, the speedometer needle indicates the car is slowing down, but the car still moves forward at a good clip. I would not buy it again. Spoils the driving experience."

ABBIE S., CA (2014 Honda Accord)

"Very good"

IGOR B., TX (2014 Honda Accord)

Anonymous, NY (2014 Honda Accord)

"I do a lot of highway driving in all kinds of conditions . My car is a standard and I find it has very good acceleration when passing , which is important. It handles very well in both heavy rain and in snow.. There are ruts in the road and although you may begin feel the car hydroplane you can quickly get control. I have confidence that if I am driving in bad weather it will be my mistake that gets me in trouble and not the car ."

"The acceleration is fantastic good handeling too"

JOSEPH L., WA (2014 Honda Accord)

"Great 4-cylinder engine. It moves well when one wants to accelerate rapidly, although rapid costs in gas mileage. I tend to drive it like I did my 2002 Pontiac Trans Am. However, the best gas mileage I've gotten was 37.5 MPG on the back roads of Florida."

KURT L., FL (2014 Honda Accord)

"The only problem with the handling of my v-6 Accord is that the general problem with front wheel drive associated with a powerful engine: accelerating in a turn leads to noticeable torque steering and tire squeal."

KARL F., MA (2014 Honda Accord)

"The automatic transmission selector is confusing and seems to use engine breaking to slow down. The air conditioning causes bad vibration !"

The car is overly reliant on electronics, when air temps approach 98 deg f the electronic controls overheat resulting in failures of FCW, LDW, camera overheat etc, once cooled down they reset, but it shouldn't' occur to begin with. Radio sound is poor and overly complicated to operate. The air conditioner condenser failed due to rock impingement, this is due to poor design of the air scoop"

"The air conditioner stopped broke when thin the first month and the warranty didn't cover it. It would only blow warm air. It turns out, the air conditioning system isn't protected. It's uncovered and if a pebble hits it underneath, it breaks. That's what happened. The dealer "fixed" it for over a thousand dollars, but it still doesn't work like it used to.

"My wife finds the passenger side seat, specifically the back of the seat to be somewhat uncomfortable, so she uses a small pillow to provide more lower back support. The ride seems sometimes to be somewhat "rough and noisy" but I haven't really determined if it is road noise due to the road bed or possible the tire tread. I won't know for use until I have to replace the tires that came factory installed. I am very previous with the drive train, acceleration, CVT transmission, and mileage. Hi"

C P., GA (2014 Honda Accord)

"I'm 6' 6" and these seats have enough adjustability to fit me fine. I would like more leg room. Here in Bakersfield, CA, air conditioning is critical and the Accord's A/C is excellent. It cools the cabin quickly and can even give you a chill when it's 111 degrees outside. The ride is a little noisy, but handling is very good."

Anonymous, TX (2014 Honda Accord)

"Still too much wind and road noise. A little sound deadening vs the poorly executed active noise cancellation would have been more effective. Putting the defroster on high causes the noise cancellation to create a low frequency rumble. Cup holder, door cards, and seatbelt anchors constantly rattle/sqeak. Audio system was over advertised and fails to deliver."

SHELBY V., TX (2014 Honda Accord)

"Driving position is TOO low. Hard to get in and out of car. Insufficient legroom to fully extend legs to nearly straight. (I am 6', 240#.) So, with knees bent somewhat, outer aspect of right knee hits against center console which is uncomfortable. I could get a bit more leg room by lowering the power seat further, which coincidentally moves the seat back, too, but I don't want to go lower. For longer trips, I take a foam pad with me to put between my knee and the console. This is a bit of a PITA"

Had two batteries replaced with 17K on the mileage guage and had to use a towing company to get me started. 2015 models NOW include this coverage. Also, two batteries replaced in 2 `/2 Yrs. Awful."
