Not expensive to care for.

The Honda Accord has really good gas mileage and is a smooth riding vehicle. Easy to care for, does require synthetic oil which runs between $45 and $65 for an oil change which is not too bad. The 2012 model that I own had leather seats which are very comfortable. This car comes loaded with air conditioning, radio/DVD player heating and cooling, non-smoking which is a plus, also has adapters to charge cell phones, comes with bucket seats. Rear seats will accommodate three adults or four children comfortably. This car also comes in a variety of colors to suit your needs. Great car, not expensive to care for.

2012 Honda Accord ABS System Is A Dud

The 2012 Honda Accord is the perfect car for a first time driver, or for those that have problems with blind spots. The seats can be moved forward/backward, upward/downward, reclined/inclined, and there's even a lower back support. The location of the mirrors & windows eliminates almost all blind spots. The audio system in this car is impeccable, and there are several ports for phone charging. My only complaint would be that the ABS system kicks in a lot, which makes driving in the snow rather bothersome and tricky because you are almost constantly sliding.

My car is custom with tinted windows. Leather seats with seat warmers.

My 2012 Honda accord is a very reliable car and pretty good on gas. It is pretty comfortable too. I have owned it for over 3 years and have had no problems with the car. I appreciate the oil life notification the car has. It is a four door car and plenty of room. Great heat and air. I preferred a car less newer without the backup camera. I prefer to not have it and this make and model does not have it. It is a real piece of mind to drive a reliable car that you do not have to worry about breaking down on the side of the road or freeway. I love my Honda..
