Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.

Fuel Economy & Emissions
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).
NA
Smog Rating Smog Rating The Smog Rating represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Owner Reports

Worse Better
Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

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 Accord's standard 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. The 3.5-liter V6 is super smooth and powerful, snapping off a 6.3-second 0-to-60 mph time that's competitive with some sports cars. Its 26 mpg overall fuel economy was among the best in the V6 class during its time.

Tire pressure monitor

"False tire pressure alarms, especially after tire rotation. Honda admits that customers are upset but offers only a dubious fix of double or triple TPMS resetting. My method is to reset just before a sustained drive of at least 30mph. A false alarm at night on strange freeway can be very dangerous."

USB port

"I think the USB port caused the battery to drain. We had to replace the battery even though we don't drive that much. I USB has caused some electrical problems but warranty is over so it wasn't investigated."

Warning lights

"car basically stopped running after every warning light i9ncluding a flashing engine warning light. would not run and had to be transported to dealer on a rollback. they eplaced multiple fuel injectors under extended warrentee. Vehicle was out of service for 5 days after a 70 mile tow. No explanation as to why every warning system lit up for an injector failure. Started with a low tire pressure warning; progressed to vehicle stability system failure; followed by a steering failure; followed by the flashing warning for service engine light."

Transmission Minor

Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.

What Owners Say

Rough shifting

"Over the past two years, clutch engagement has deteriorated from smooth to consistent shuddering, particularly for first, second, and reverse gears. The dealer has refused to acknowledge or remedy the deterioration, even though I've been reporting it over the past couple years of regular maintenance visits. The problem has not been resolved and is a continuing concern."

"Had the car in 3x to the dealer to address very rough downshifting - literally the car would not glide even on flat roads. They finally addressed with a software change (TSB)"

"The vehicle began shifting hard and power varied despite no change in the accelerator being pressed, especially when cruise control was engaged. Both of these occurred when going speeds 45 to 65 mph. Honda updated the transmission computer under warranty."

Martin S., IL (2015 Honda Accord EX 3.5-L V6)

"Car has been to Honda twice for transmission issues that they have not been able to resolve. It frequently stalls on cold starts and the transmission slips when first driving after a cold start.

Transmission sensor or solenoid

"My Accord is the V6 Coupe model with the 6-speed automatic transmission. I purchased the vehicle certified used with 25k miles and at around 45k miles, I experienced inconsistent acceleration. The actual shift points shifted smoothly but when the vehicle was accelerating within a gear (the problem was the worst in gears 1, 2 & 3), it would lurch forward, slow slightly, & repeat. This happened several times within each of the first few gears & then would smooth out and seem to return to normal once I reached approx. 40-45 mph. The problem was noticeable regardless of how quickly or how slowly I accelerated and the vehicle did it in Eco, Normal, & Sport modes. The issue did not affect my fuel mileage & once up to speed, my Accord drove fine. I could, however, feel the jerking motion return under hard passing maneuvers where the transmission dropped to 2nd or 3rd gear. Additionally, when backing out of my parking space in the morning, I would hear a slight scraping noise when shifting from "Park" to "Drive." Although whatever was causing this noise did not at all seem to impact the performance of the vehicle, it was rather disconcerting. I contacted my local dealer to have it fixed and with my certified used warranty, my Accord was repaired free of charge in about a day."
