A Better Car, A Honda Accord that Excels in Reliability.

The vehicle is a 4-door sedan with cloth seats and no advanced features. It has a single CD player, and standard gauges/AC. The vehicle has lasted more than 100,00 miles with no breakdowns, no unexpected malfunctions, and no problems with keeping to a standard maintenance schedule. The vehicle has excellent suspension, handling off-road dirt and gravel roads without issue. The gas mileage is approximately 25 city and 29 highway. The parts last beyond their average life expectancy and the output remains a strong constant. The acceleration is decent, but not too expedient. The A/C works above average for a sedan and has yet to fail.I highly recommend this vehicle for both short commutes and long commutes. Also, the lock bars for kids car seats and well placed in the rear seating and hold up extremely well, also providing a third bar in the rear windshield area.

The most important thing people should know about my Honda is that it was a smart buy. It was a smart buy because not only does it look amazing, inside and out but the visual belies the excellent functionality and superior comfort. It was a smart buy because its size and weight still allow for amazing mileage per gallon.

My Honda Accord is a wonderful car that is comfortable, economic, with great style and presence. The leather interior is very nice but this does not sacrifice comfort. Mileage is great and saves me a lot of money every month. Honda is at the top of my list when considering cars for our home. My only complaint is that when you lock the car the sound the alarm makes when it gets enabled is too high-pitched. The alarm also constantly goes off on its own it even goes off when I have been sitting in the car! The alarm arms itself when I am in the car with the key in the ignition!

It is dependable. It has always gotten us where we need to go. I have no real complaints!

We have had this car for about 4 and a half years. It has worked great, even though we put a lot of miles on it. We have put around 90k miles on it in the time we have had it. We have had a few problems with the engine, nothing too costly. Also nothing I wouldn't expect from any other car. Overall I never worry about the dependability. It is very comfortable to ride in, we have had a couple recalls that were handled quickly and at no cost to us. It has a lot of trunk room, and back seat room which helps out a lot. We are really happy with our purchase of this car.
