2004 Honda Accord: oldie but a goodie.

2004 Honda Accord

My car is an older model of the Honda Accord. For its age and miles, it performs quite well. It is manual, and so the clutch has been replaced several times but always works fully after being replaced. Shifting is smooth, cruise control works and is useful on the highway, and the emergency brake is highly effective when parking on hills. Beyond how the car drives, the seats are leather, and still pristine. The air conditioner works quickly and effectively, with the exception of when the car is idling (using the ac while idling will cause the car to start to overheat, but the minute you start driving, the temperature returns to normal). One of the greatest downsides of driving an older car is the lack of aux/Bluetooth capabilities. The charging ports and CD player/radio work perfectly fine, but connecting your phone to everything has become so common that it feels odd not having that capability. Overall, it is a very reliable car that is made many long trips. When problems arise, they haven't been fatal, and they are not incredibly surprising or frustrating. Older cars require additional vigilance when it comes to maintenance, but regularly rotating the car's tires, changing the oil, etc.. Makes driving this car manageable.

The Honda Accord Sedan is an extremely reliable vehicle that is fun to drive!

2004 Honda Accord EX Sedan

The Honda Accord Sedan is an extremely reliable vehicle It has been such a good car that I don't want to get rid of it. In my opinion, your vehicle is like a family pet. Therefore, I love it and I'm so attached to it that I don't want to sell it or trade it in for a new car! The gas mileage is very favorable ' even while puttering around town running errands. It has been extremely reliable transportation for me. Although it does not have leather, upholstery it doesn't bother me at all. I live where it gets extremely hot and acquaintances who have leather seats always complain about them being so hot that they have to place towels on them before being able to sit on them. I am one who goes more for economics over luxury ' I was taught as a teenager that to value a car by its ability to get you from point A to point B safely, and back to point A. Honda' Accords are very safe, the perfect size, and affordable. I feel very safe driving it both in the city and on road trips. When repairs are needed, the parts are easily accessible and are reasonably priced.

First Honda that I have owned and I am very pleased with the car.

2004 Honda Accord LX Coupe

Purchased used about 6 years ago. Has over 200,000 miles. It is very comfortable to drive and is not tiring to take on long drives. It has a large trunk. The screen for the GPS quit working about two years ago and it is too expensive to replace. I do the minor maintenance. The timing belt was changed about 3 years ago. I mostly use it to buzz around town and run errands. I like to ease of replacing the ignition packs. It is a four door so it is easy to take others along but my mother in law who lives with us can no longer get in and out of it. We use the sienna for her. It sounds like it will need a new muffler soon. It has proven to be a dependable car, but do not take it to a dealer for repair as they really love to up sale you on everything and everything they sell is expensive. Even though I use to live in a rural area I had not problem finding a mechanic that could work on it.
