Good car

Bought used car in 2016 with 35,000kms on it. Has big improvement compare with last generation. Love the dual big screens maker he car looks luxury, blind spot camera makes safe lane change and convenient parking. Good interior size and comfortable seats. Most mid end Japanese cars not really have good paint, mine already showing age, especially on front bumper. Has bit noise around glove box in cold days. Multimedia system occasionally has no response. All others are fine, about 8.8L/100kms, very economic for a 2.4L car

Great Car

The Honda Accord is a great, reliable, quiet and fuel efficient car. I have always owned six cylinder vehicles prior to the purchase of my Honda, but I have not been disappointed. It has more than enough power to safely overtake on the open road. It has plenty of room, with great leg room in the rear. Boot space is excellent.

My fourth Honda

Love everything about my Accord. In particular the Melbourne, Astoria dealership. Tried to buy one in Geelong but they could not even organize a test drive for 4 weeks. Will always buy in Melbourne even living the other side of Geelong. The car is all luxury compared to many other much more expensive brands.

Decent car

Have had the car for 9 yrs and having done almost 180,000 km now. Drove the car mostly between home and office in metro Melbourne with occasional long trips within and inter states. The car seems to be well built with no major mechanical problems aside from usual wear and tear. The body paint seems to scratch easily. Aircon still strong. Still rides well. Slightly more expensive to service. Overall it is a decent car for this class of Japanese though Thai built car.

best car I have driven so far

I bought a used Accord in 2012, accord V6 luxury -2008. This is probably the best car I have ever owned so far. I had a Lexus-is250 before which was good too, but this accord is much more luxurious. Didn’t have any issue as yet is last 4 years.

This may look like an old man’s car but don’t be fooled, it got more than enough kick. Fuel economy is great too, city freeway combined is 10.4L/100

Car for no extra service

Own it almost 3 years! Honestly this car wants nothing, just a simple service! Very comfortable, Very sporty. It's like a storm when you kick down! I could never think that after my subaru I would love another car! But the accord is completely different! The best car I even owned!

Cant fault it

Bought this vehicle new, and 8 years later still very impressed. Plenty of power, smooth ride, handles well, very safe with heaps of airbags (although on recall like many other brand cars). Apart from servicing and the usual things like brakes and batteries, has only been in the workshop once. Servicing at Honda dealerships is expensive and this is why I haven't had a full service for years - simply change oil and fluids etc myself.

A very dependable car

I bought a second hand Honda Accord 2000 model 3ltr V6 in 2004 and 11 years later it's still going strong. No oil leaks, no coolant leaks, no nothing. Hard to believe but it's true. It still has the same engine, same transmission and radiator when in most cars these days you would have replaced at least one of those items (as I experienced with my Mitsubishi).

The interior has held well over time and the quality of plastics used is evident as there has been no cracking of the dash.

Still drives and handles well even after all this time and find it hard to part ways with because whatever I buy next I will be expecting tank like reliability.

The only down side its a 4 speed V6 meaning it does about 12.5 ltr per 100km's.

95 honda accord

My son wanted a cheap car, less than $2K after selling his performance car. Bought a 95 Honda Accord VTi-S, $1800, after replacing a noisy wheel bearing, cost $75, the car is... well, quite surprising. No noise, no rattles, rides great, auto changes well, everything works, uses no oil or coolant, returned 7.6L/100 on a highway run, 555kms on 42L (I filled it up), even has leather interior and a sunroof. These things are nearly down to junk value, but still very good cars if you look around, there are some rough ones, and good ones, but they are all around the same value.

Great 2005 Honda V6

The best car I have owned! Comfortable, leather seats, quiet powerful motor, quite cabin, plenty of boot space and leg room. Just one issue - when accelerating from a low speed there is a slight hesitation (lag) which appears to be common with some Honda V6 models. It is a bit thirsty around town, but I get good mileage on trips.
Quiet, powerful, roomy, solid, great cabin finish, great exterior looks!

great car

i owned an 2010 VTI LE until it got totalled last week. curtain airbags saved us. did 60K without any issues apart from an airbag light early on that the dealer fixed after a couple of attempts. very fuel efficient, quiet, smooth, safe. way better finished than toyotas. the only thing i would like Honda to improve woulf be to look at brake pad life. brake pads needed to be replaced at 40K which is quite normal for these cars. i would recommend this car and woulod buy another one myself.
smooth, quiet, build quality, efficiency, reliability
brake pads needed to be replaced at only 40K

Great car, but with a few issues

I will clarify that I love this car, but want to highlight a few issues:

- Paint chips very easily

- Air conditioner has a known flaw (easily punctured by rocks kicked up by tyres), that is not covered by warranty

- The boot is an inconvenient size/shape (don't plan on family road trips)

Other than that it is very solid and a great car to drive. It is a very smooth drive, and it doesn't have the tinny feel common in other cars it size. Best car at the price point.
Solid, good price

Honda Accord 2010

This is my third Honda, having had a Civic previously and my partner has a Jazz, which she loves.

It is a very comfortable car to drive and has a smooth ride. Fuel economy is reasonable for a vehicle of its size, as I get around 9litres per 100klm on average, which is mostly short journeys that are too far to walk, yet too short to better the economy.

The back seat area can accommodate two large adults, over 185cm with ease and comfort, and the boot is quite spacious, as I have been able to carry 3 full sets of golf clubs, and 3 good sized suitcases when on holidays.
Good to drive, reasonable economy for its size, reliable
Expensive to have dealer service

Comfort and Style

I bought a 2005 Honda Accord in 2011. This car has aged well. It is comfortable and a pleasure to drive. The V6 does take more petrol of couse but the extra power is worth it. Although it is 6 years old people are commenting on its great design.
Stylish, comfortable and a pleasure to drive

Good

This was my mum car 10 years back. She bought it brand new and used it for everyday driving. I had a chance to drive it a lot and I loved it. Honda always makes great and reliable car. The cost to maintain it wasn't too bad. Nice to drive around the city. It doesn't sit too low as some of the sedans. Easy to park and very fuel efficient. Nothing to complain. I would recommend it to anyone.
Good car for its age. Very reliable and beautiful to drive.
Not much to complain about except the handling can be improved.

Excellent

I bought this 1999 Civic in July of 1999 and am still driving it.

This is June of 2010, so in a month it will be 11 years old.

It has 85,300 miles on it.

I just change oil as required. Did have to buy a set of tires.

Every thing else is origional equipment

On the highway I get 35-40 mpg and 25 mpg intown

I am 74 and have purchased a few cars in my time and know

that if I had been driving Honda's, I would probably

would not have had to buy about 3 of thoes cars.

So, want good mileage and dependability? Buy a Honda

i
A friend of mine had a Honda and I thought it was a dependable carso I bought one(a 1999 Civic)
Nothing to dislike about it

Its a great family car, drives really well, maybe a little more power in the 4 cylinder would be good, but it is a perfect luxury car. I will definitely be upgrading in about 5 years to another honda.
VTI luxury 2008 is a beautiful car. I love it - we bought it last year brand new and it is the smoothest driving car, with fantastic features. The luxury has seat warmers, automatic lights, wipers, leather seats and great stereo system
nothing i love it

Excellent

Honda don't disappoint (unlike Holden). More expensive than toyota by 2000-3000, but you get a better build and more luxury. Handling relatively smooth, but turning is a little insufficient.
Have the 2007 Honda Accord VTI-L. Very comfortable quiet drive. Great family car. Comfortable. Not a single problem!
Difficult to estimate edges when parking as the shape drops away. Visibility is OK. Water jets for windscreen hit the wipers and not the windscreen. Shape of the wipers make it hard to design jets that go over the wipers. Turns like a bus.

Excellent

This is a beautiful car inside and outside. I have the four cylinder and it could do with a bit more power, but it is adequate. Ergonomically, the car is near perfect, the controls are easily reachable and provides for great comfort. The centre console is easy to understand and is attractive. There is plenty of room in the back seat for 3 passengers. The car has a full-size spare and all the necessary tools are available for tyre changes.
Comfortable, quiet, spacious, attractive.
Boot is not as large as it could be and it is not very tall. Fuel economy is good, but not fantastic.

Overall i find the new accord a pleasure to drive. The features supplied from seat memory, self audio adjustment to road noise, gps/audio controls, general layout etc have been well planned. The exterior styling is bold and stands out whilst the interior is uncluttered, plentiful and above all very comfortable. Would I buy honda again? A certian YES
2008/09 model : Design, finish, quality above all competition in all areas. Comfort on long trips great. Fuel economy pretty good for a v6. Equipment levels better than competitors. Special features welcomed.
No dislikes but areas that could be improved to allow perfection are; interior height of boot, positioning of front/center drink holders.
