The 2012 Accord Sedan combines outstanding value, excellent driving dynamics, a roomy and comfortable passenger cabin, and sporty styling vaguely similar to some BMW sedans. If your budget says...

V6 power with heated leather seats!

2012 Honda Accord LX

The accord is a v6 with plenty of power for hills. Both front seats are heated and the driver side seat adjustment can be programmed to at least two different positions for different drivers. The seats are leather and there is ample legroom for passengers in the rear. The rear has adjustable vents for back seat climate control and there is dual climate control for the two front seats. The color is pearl white with a sunroof, stereo system with Bluetooth and USB connection. Cruise control and side mirror controls included with the side curtain airbags. Four wheel disc brakes are responsive. I have had no mechanical issues with the accord. It has a full service record for oil, filter, fluids, and tire rotation. The passenger side airbag has been replaced per a Honda paid recall. Dislikes: the v6 engine only gets about 32 miles per gallon on the highway and the car does not have backup camera or navigation system. Otherwise I am please with this car.

The Honda Accord is very comfortable and a great and reliable family car.

2012 Honda Accord

My Honda Accord is very comfortable, and spacious. My family of 5 fits in it well even with the 5 year old in their car seat. It is very reliable. I have not had any real issues with it. The only complaint I have is it can be a little loud while driving in the road. The trunk is very big so you can store many things in it. I am only 5 feet tall and sometimes I feel like this car is made for a taller person because the dash is a little high, but the drivers seat does go up and that helps. I got the Accord from Honda and the first few oil changes were free which was very helpful. I have a dark gray Accord and I love the way it looks and the way it drives. If I were to buy another car it would be a Honda Accord.

2012 Honda Accord review, great performance!

2012 Honda Accord

I love this car. It is comfortable and driving long distances is not a problem. It can comfortable fit up to 4 other people with no problem. I have also driven a considerable amount in it. I think I have put around 25, 000 miles on it within the last 2 years and it still runs great with no problems. The radio works really well, and it is also really easy to connect a phone via USB or an AUX cord. It also has a CD player in it. I am not sure if many people still use theirs, but it works great for me if I ever forget the cord to my phone or if there's no good radio stations in my area. Overall, I am very satisfied with the performance of this car.
