Reliable but annoyingly quiet.

2005 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan

My Honda Accord was inherited by my grandmother. I absolutely LOVE this car. It is a very basic Accord that has no luxuries. It is a greenish grey color on the outside and grey on the Interior. It does have dark tinted windows and I guess that would be a luxury of some kind. The motor has run smoothly for all these years. The only problems that this car has ever had is 1) the battery was always draining and 2) the radio does not work. After the continuous draining of the battery, we did discovered the radio was draining the battery because it would mysteriously come on throughout the day and night. It was then decided to have the electricity in the car checked and as expected there was a faulty fuse to the radio. All of the fuses got changed and we went ahead and got a new battery. When we got the car back, the radio worked for a whopping 3 days and so we decided to remove the radio fuse forever and since, we have had no problems. Everything about this car is still running well and like it's new. For.a 2005 this Honda Accord has been very reliable and someday when it does poop out, I will definitely look to another Honda.

Honda accord lx v6 coupe? Yes or no.

2005 Honda Accord LX V6 Coupe

I really love my Honda. Got it used with 155k miles on it back in 2017, within those 2 years I now have 202k miles and it still runs really well. There are a couple minor problems but the positives outweigh the negative. The radio does not work anymore no matter what I do it just won't come on, the clips on the bumper are broken so the sides come out a little but it is not too bad, and the belt (idk which one) needs to be replaced but those can all be fixed. The things I love about my Honda is that it is actually lasted me this long, I took it to California and drove on some pretty steep and winding roads and the car was doing really well through it all. Even though it is really old I know it is reliable and very fuel efficient. I drive to California a lot from northwest phoenix and I can get there on one tank of gas and I think it is pretty underestimated because this car is pretty fast as well. I honestly love it so much.

My amazingly, awesome Honda.

2005 Honda Accord

My vehicle has had very little problems actually. Other than just changing the brakes or an oil change nothing really major. My vehicles performance is amazing, especially for it too be a 2005 model with over 200, 000 miles!! It drives soo smooth and can get up too speed in no time with no trouble at all. It is extremely reliable at that. I have never had an instance where it has broken down on me or anything serious thank goodness. It is extremely comfortable as well. It is actually quite roomy for a luxury sedan. I have a family of 4 and we fit in there with room to spare. There's all kind of awesome features to my vehicle as well such as, heated seats, dual air/heat control, tilt wheel and you can pull the wheel closer to you or farther away. 6 disc changer, etc. . It is just an all around great vehicle and Honda's truly do last forever. I would recommend one too anyone!!
