When we walked into Sullivan Honda the Wednesday before Thanksgiving after a LONG ride between holiday traffic and construction, Chris Brennan was there to meet us with a big smile on his face about 15 minutes before closing. The 2008 Camry Solara I was interested in was in the garage under lights all ready to be test driven by me!!! I had gotten into an accident with my previous Solara, which was beautiful, so I was very critical of looking at another one. They told me over the phone that this car was immaculate and they were right! It was a year newer, less mileage and better riding than my last one! We negotiated a price and worked together. There was no pressure at all. There were a few "glitches" on my end while trying to register the car. They were so incredibly patient along the way and went OUT OF THEIR WAY to accommodate me.I would no doubt go back to Sullivan Honda for my next car purchase. All the guys we dealt with were awesome! Chris, Mike and Tim! Thank you soooo much! I am so happy with my 2008 (almost brand new) Camry Solara!L & T in Northford, CT

After purchasing MANY different new cars throughout my life, in 2006 I decided to take the advise of a trusted and wise Honda owning friend. He had 250K on his 2005 Honda Accord, and he loved the car. My Honda has been THE BEST auto purchase ever, and it is 100% reliable and inexpensive to operate! As a professional marketer and on the road most of the time, this is HUGE. Not sure I can ever part with her.

This is the best car I have ever owned in 50 years. So good I just purchased another new one after driving for 248,500 miles. Still able to get 29 - 30 mpg on the highway. Was not really ready to part with it but I wanted the latest in technology safety and creature features.

This is my first car that my parents bought for me as a graduation gift. I couldn't be any happier with it! I average around 30 miles per gallon and it only costs around $30 dollars to completely fuel over here in SoCal. The leather still looks very nice after 10 years and the interior has a timeless design. The 4 cylinder engine has just enough pep for most people and the revs sound great at higher RPMs. I do enjoy speed though and wish it had a V6 but I'll just wait for that when I can buy a car on my own. The exterior design is also nice. I still get comments from friends guessing that it looks a few years newer because of its design. I also really enjoy the hydraulic power steering on this car over the new cars that have electronic power steering. There's much more weight to the wheel when turning and it feels better tuned for a more natural drive. One complaint I have is that there is no AUX input to play music from my Ipod. Come on Honda, you already have a factory radio that is AUX ready! If you're on a budget but want a reliable and somewhat luxurious car, I would definitely look at this and this is 10 years after it was released!

Great car. Good on gas. Bought it at 92,000 miles. Have 125,000 miles on it now and just replaced the timing belt and fan belt. Should get another 90,000 miles out of it. I deliver pizzas in it and it is excellent on gas. Synthetic oil only i use every 4,000 miles. Great car!!!

I bought my car new in November of 2005. I drive over 33,000 miles a year (yes I know I am not carbon friendly). Anyway this car has been amazing. Great for the everyday commute and the vacation getaway. I live in the mountains and work in L.A. so most winters I have to run on chains 30-40 minutes each morning and each evening during the winter. Other cars and 4 wheel drive trucks have gotten stuck or crashed but NOT my Honda. In the 347,000 miles I have had very little trouble. I have replaced: right rear wheel bearing (once) one electric fan motor one air conditioning High pressure valve one starter At the 310,000 mile mark she started using a little oil. Now at 347,000 I need to add 1 to 1.5 quarts of oil in between oil changes. I still get 30 mpg and everything- radio, gauges, ac and heater, heated seats still work perfectly. I just looked at new cars and because of there price I am sticking with this one. My mechanic has said "this car rides better than most of the 100,000 mile cars he works on" and because I park underground and clay and wax the car regularly the paint is still in amazing shape. Great Great Car Thank You Honda!!

Over the years I have had many experiences of getting in a car only to find it doesn't start or that there is to be some surprise down the road as I drive - surprises that are inconvenient and costly, specifically, broken parts plus labor. This car has lasted the test of time. I get it in and it always starts. I have maintained it very well. It has 305,000 miles and is still going strong with no major repairs except a new water pump. I hope to go beyond 400,000 miles and believe it will do so. It doesn't have the power it used to but I am gentle with it. Best car I have ever owned. I will NEVER own another GM product again (our family's other two cars).

We bought this car in 2008 with 15k, it currently has 120k. It has been a fantastically reliable car. Other than normal maintenance the only thing I've had to repair was the starter. I do all my own work and it has been a very easy car to work on. Changing the timing belt, it has the easiest to read timing marks of any car I've worked on. It's those little things that you don't usually see that tell you it has had a lot of engineering put into it and it shows. I fully expect this car to last for another 120k easily.

I've had my 2006 Accord for almost a year now and I LOVE IT. It looks great (2-door coupe) and sporty with tinted windows, moon roof, and the dual exhaust. The inside is all leather and wood trim, it looks fantastic and is extremely comfortable. My only complaint is I wish it was easier to get into the back seat from the drivers side. But if I was that worried about it I would have gotten a 4-door car. I had to drive it in some Seattle snow and it handled great. I wish the stereo had Bluetooth but I guess it's a little old for that. Besides that it sounds good. I feel this car looks a lot better inside and out than a lot of newer cars just coming out.

Bought the my Accord in 2009 with 30k miles, it now has 134k miles. I use it to commute to work. I have never had to do any work other the maintenance. Its fun to drive and gets great mpg. I bought my car from a dealership and its lowered. I love the look and style. Roomy interior to par. I have 2 more payments till its paid for. I'm seriously debating to buy another newer Acura or just keep driving this one.

We purchased our Honda Accord SE in May 2013. It is amazing - with great fuel economy, impeccable build quality, and outstanding reliability. It starts flawlessly in -40 C weather and smoothly rushes to redline when it's driven hard. Although the steering is light, it is communicative and direct. This is one of the best Honda vehicles we have ever owned - next to my 1996 bare-bones Canadian Civic LX 5MT (DX in the US) Sedan.

Got a new job where I'm on the road a lot, so I needed a comfortable, reliable car -- but I wanted something with some luxury and sportiness! Oh, and I only had a used-car budget. I found my EX-L V6 coupe with only 57k miles on it, and man, I just love it. How does Honda make their V6 so smooth? When I mat the gas, it gets up and goes, and the engine never sounds thrashy or strained. And the handling is good for a front-driver - it doesn't bob or float, and though the ride is firm, it's not punishing.

The best car I have had overall. Very reliable. Like any other car you must maintain it & it will last a lifetime. There are minor flaws/cons with it like any other car such as the clear coat scratches easy, minor rattles in the door, steering is very tight. Pros are gas mileage is okay, built to last, no major issues, and leather seats have held up very well. I haven't had anything annoying or major happen. I've just maintained the car and not had any issues. I wish it had an AUX port and I wish it was AWD like some of Acuras cars like it. The biggest pro for me is the really tight steering but the pros out weigh the cons for sure. Overall worth the money

Always Buy Honda

I honestly love my Honda Accord. I bought it with 88,000 miles 2 years ago and now have 130,000. I drive a lot and needed a good quality car. Honda is the way to go, and especially an accord. I've contemplated selling my car only because of the loan I used to buy it is sinking me. But, I just can't actually get to the point of wanting to give up a car I really enjoy having and one that has been so reliable. When I bought it two years ago with 88k miles on it, it was Honda certified with a year warranty I paid extra for. I shouldn't have purchased the warranty, although always good to play it safe, but I never needed to use it. Great car. Love it.

I have had my 2006 Honda since it was brand new. It has been my favorite car I have ever owned. It holds its retail value like no other. I called it my baby, I always wanted one when I was younger. Well I have the luxury of being able to say my baby saved my life on Tuesday when a 74 year old lady ran a red light and tboned me. My side and curtain air bags went off. My baby, my Honda saved my life, she didn't fair too well :( but she did her job like she was suppose to. After everything is settled headed to buy my second Honda Accord.

Ive owned my Accord for 1 year 5 months now. Its been a great car to me other than me having to have the transmission replaced. Dont expect yours to crap out on you though, the previous owner only had the fluid changed 1 time in 100,000 miles. Bad idea. Oh well, other than that its been great! Just usual maintenance is all its needed. It feels like a very solid car, i get 25-27 mpg routinely and all i do is drive to school and work. Its in good shape overall, i do detail it every week. The paint still looks great. Mine has 110,000 miles on it now and it still drives great. VERY smooth 4 cylinder engine and more than enough pick up, this thing is peppy! continued in favorite features section.

Cute car, fun to drive though I recommend the manual transmission if you are looking for fun. Really disappointed with the gas mileage achieved though. I am told its due to the ethanol in gas now. Only getting on average 25mpg highway when its rated up to 31 and get about 23 around town.

Note: I have owned this car for several months, though my father owned it since March of 2005. The 2006 Honda Accord is a pleasure to drive. It's pickup is quite responsive and powerful, its 244 HP or so is perfect for this car. I also get good mileage, about 22-23 MPG average. The interior is roomy, the seats have a good balance between cushion and support, and the leather has held up well. The ride is average, but controlled. As far as handling is concerned, it has a light feel to it and takes the curbs pretty well, though its not a German car. I will also comment that the speakers are superior to that of any luxury car I've been in, including the BMW 5 series, Acura TL, and Lincoln MKS.

I bought this car brand new from the dealership with 7 miles on her. Its now been 6 years, 80k miles later and she still drives the same as she did when i first got her from the dealership. No major work done except oil changes, battery once, all four tires twice, front brakes once, air filter and just passed smog with flying colors. Im going to keep driving this thing till the engine blows up.

I inherited this car after I surprised my husband with a pick up truck. We bought it new. I have been driving it for the past 2.5 years. It has almost 100000 miles and has never been repaired. Regular maintenance only. I have replaced the brakes once and 1 set of new tires and a battery and oil changes. That is it. I will drive this car until the wheels fall off. The wipers bang loudly and will cost about 300.00 to replace the motor. That's it. And this is coming from a die hard Camry driver. I would buy another Honda Accord.

I have had the 2006 Accord Ex-V6 since it was new, but have never reviewed it until now. This is the fourth Honda I have owned. I keep all my cars for many years. This car is quite comfortable. I think that is my favorite aspect of the car. The leather seats have held up well. I have had the car almost 7 years (purchased in Nov. 05) and the leather is still not split. My back seats still look practically new. Nothing in the interior has ever broken, to date. The exterior paint is thin and scratches easily. The reported sticker gas mileage is totally inaccurate. It avgs. 18 mpg. The reliability of the car does not compare to my former Honda cars. It's been towed three times in the last year!

stay away - this car is a junk-yard worthy thing nothing more

I had this Honda Accord EX V6 for more than 6 years. This was a complete waste of money - problems started almost right after first year - annoying noise in the driver and passenger doors. Then, it had an issue with the steering wheel power pump, next engine mounts broke, then transmission died (at 60000 miles), next I had to replace struts, then steering pump was replaced and finally it started leaking oil... and... well, this list can go on, thankfully I had extended warranty so most of the repairs didn't cost me big $$.

I bought this car used with 20,000 miles on it. I've driven it 80,000 miles with just oil changes and one break job and a alignment. The car handles great on dry and rainy roads. Its pretty comfortable even for me I'm 6ft 2in and over three hundred pounds. The only negative I find is that it does'nt handle that well in snow. Over all I love it and would recommend it.

This is my second Honda, my first was a 95 accord that made it to 224,000 miles. I really like this new one. It handles much better and rides firmer (which i like) the braking is decent and the 2.4 i v-tec engine is quicker and better on fuel than my old V6. Mine is pretty basic, it has manual cloth seats, no sunroof, no heated seats or nav. but i like it because it does what its supposed to do well. Im a little leery though about the transmission, to me it seems to shift rough compared to other cars ive been in. Mine has 97,500 on it and im hoping it will get me to at least 250,000. I plan to take good care of it and follow the service manual, hopefully it will pay off. If you can, buy one!

This car has only a couple of problems; very worn brakes and tires at 52k, the leather could be made better, but every thing else is either perfect or ok. The power is great, the headlights look awesome, and the fuel economy said 24, 34 in the handbook but now it's like 21, 30. I'd blame the worn tires though. I have the sunroof a spoiler and black paint. During hot weather it's a real surprise when you go from 85F to about 104F. The fastest I've ever gone in it was 120mph.

This car is definitely not in the BMW 3 series league. I had the V6 - 6 speed model with the sport suspension. Understeered fairly bad, rolled and wobbled badly on corers, and despite fairly good HP numbers, acceleration felt uninspired. This car had no personality, it just basically ran -- dull exhaust note, non-communicative steering. If you just want a commuter car, this is probably fine, but don't waste your money on the V6. You want a more performance oriented car, look elsewhere.

Bought a 2006 hybrid with nav as cpo for about half new retail price when it had 47k on the clock. Now close to 80k with zero problems, no repairs. no rattles. Consistent 40 mpg on freeway if driven below 72mph. very comfortable and powerful. hard to beat. I have owned 9 Honda/Acura cars and this one beats them all without question.

Super car. Bought used with about 50,000 miles. Drives excellently. 3 accords in my family. All super! The v6 is so smooth! 6 speed manual takes a little getting used to . Especially after I drive my wife's auto 4 cylinder. There is some kind of flaw with 3 rd gear. Sometimes does not want to go in. Thought it was my used version. But hearing others have the same problem. When you want to get down and boogie . The thing will really move. Or will be a super smooth commuter. It is a real 4 seater even though a coupe. I have driven the latest models. I will not give this one up for one of those. Honda needs to get better with new models. Hyundai is a real threat now. My 06 is a+

Special order of a LX-L Desert Mist. Came fully equipped with no extras except tinted windows. Never use the sun roof. Car has been very reliable and gets 25 mph in the city. Only complaints are two: (1) road noise on Texas non-skid surfaced roads is so loud as unable to converse except by shouting at highway speeds. Have been told by dealer that this is a common complaint that cannot be fixed by undercoating, etc. and (2) front passenger comfort is poor as feel every bump; hence, this has been turned into a town driving only vehicle. Otherwise, it has been one of the best vehicles we've owned and the 25 mph local mileage is a real plus.

Just bought this black beauty with 30,000 miles on it and am amazed at its performance, economy, handling, and comfort levels. It's definitely at the top of its class and better than many costing thousands more. I put 18 inch 2009 Honda wheels on it (with 235/40/ZR18 Michelin tires), and it corners like it's on rails. The black leather interior says luxury in every aspect. No amenities were left to chance, per the usual Honda mindset. Just put 262 miles on it last night (75 mph freeway driving) and got 29.5 mpg - very good for this powerful V6. Glad it shares its stellar reputation with its 'bread-and- butter' sister (Sedan) while adding a bit of individualism 'sport' to its look/feel.

Ok, I wrote a review of this car in January 2006 when I had owned it for 4 months. It is now 5 years old and I still Love it! Despite being hit from behind and knocked into another car for $5000 damage and a little later being hit by a tree for another $4000 damage, it still rides and drives as good as the day I bought it! 97,500 miles and only maintenance has been oil changes, tires, one new set of spark plugs, brakes, battery and one headlamp. I don't get quite the gas mileage I should be, but that is my fault as I need to change out the air filter and probably the gas one as well. This is one great car! I will own Honda's from now on!

I sold my Acura and my Subaru WRX STi due to buying a house. I was looking for a reliable, affordable and comfortable coupe. I found this car with 53,000 miles, new tires and new brakes. Please check the battery carefully, mine was leaking and the positive terminal was corroded. The car is very comfortable and pretty quiet (not much road noise) compared to what I used to drive. I paid 14K. The V6 has 240 hp from the factory, I added the AEM V2 cold air intake for another 15. The car gets easily 300 miles on a tank and uses 87 octane.

I enjoy my Accord but just like others the 3rd gear is screwy. I like the space the leather seats hold well for the occasional aggressive driving. I use it as my daily driver the V6 is very peppy. A little stronger clutch would be nice to hold the heavy (fast high revving) shift's but for normal driving it is just fine. For the fuel mileage I am averaging 23-25 mpg with a mix of city/hwy driving. I feel the mpg is great.

I have driven 5 Honda cars before and bought this one for the same reason I, or my family, has owned the others: reliability and low cost of maintenance. The only problems have been a faulty engine temperature gauge, which would have cost a lot more to replace in other car brands, and a window issue. In the last 300 miles, the driver's side window would not roll up. This has happened twice and is intermittent. I think the switch will probably have to be replaced. I doubt it will be a costly repair. Other than that, no issues. I just paid it off and plan to drive it to 300k, which is a possibility with these cars. My only complaint is Honda interiors tend to rattle, which started early on.

This Honda Accord showed that the Honda line came a long way. The standard features in the car are what you would expect from a luxury car. This vehicle takes the bumps well and has tight handling. Pick-up is adequate. The seats are supportive and comfortable and leg room is not an issue. Trunk room is decent, and the stereo system is A+ considering its standard. The heated seats are also a plus. The biggest negative about the car is its weight. Its way to light and you can easily feel the smallest breeze when driving above 65 MPH.

When we bought our Honda we were shopping for our 3rd Camry, however, the Toyota salesman was more interested in his newspaper so we went across the street to May Honda in Waco. Kind of a lucky break, The Honda Accord is quieter and has a quieter "more substantial" feel. For a 4 cylinder auto, I have never felt as though I needed more power, the 4 banger does really well in town nd on the highway. I have 130k miles on the odometer and it is still as quiet, responsive and comfortable as it was when new. The only thing negative I can think of is that the tires have to be "V" rated and those tires are expensive, noisy, wear fast. "W" rated tires would have been the right choice.

I have owned this car for 3 years - highly dependable, reliable and comfortable. I use this car to commute in the brutal DC area traffic. Great acceleration (V6), braking and maneuverability. Gas mileage could be better - 22 city/28 hwy. As others have noted, there are occasional problems with the 3rd gear synch on the manual transmission, the car's only flaw. This is my 3rd Accord; great performance and reliability for the price!

I own 2002 accord and I love it. This 2006 model is great too. I am finding the fuel economy close to the 2.3l in the 2002 if I don't drive it hard. But it's nice to have that extra Hp from the V6 when you need it on demand. I am very impressed with it. I am not sure why it did not come with side moldings, that would prevent a lot of door dings from other parked cars . But overall I am very pleased with this used car with only 42,000 km on it.

But it is great car, Drove over a few rough roads with no rattles. Great Looks, love the moon roof, cd player, power seats, 17" wheels. Lots of get up and go. Haven't driven it enough to tell about the Miles per gallon. Hopefully the v6 will provide that. In the past I have owned a Toyota Camry and a Nissan maxima. After one day of ownership I can say that the Honda is the better car.

The 5-speed 4 cylinder is fun to drive. Good acceleration and handling for fwd. Reliability - exhaust shield rattled dealer fixed, outlets failed can't charge phone & gps at the same time unlike every other car I've owned. 43,000 miles computer failed and put me on the side of the road 125 miles from home. None of my GM cars have broke down on the side of the road with less than 200,000+ miles on them. Honda replace ECM under warranty. Lots of feathers, great comfort, pretty & tasteful styling. Quality and "impression" of quality outstanding, actual quality well below expectations. Wouldn't have the auto with the 4-banger.

I bought this accord brand new in Monrovia. The only problem I had was cheap arm rest had came unattached and the brake rotors would warp after excessive freeway usage. No other problems with the car from day one until totaled. I do have to say this is a safe car. First accident was striking a box spring and spare tire on the highway ripped front bumper right off. 2nd accident totaled car, rear end impact at 50 mph! Was able to walk out of the car shaken up and unhurt. I would have to say I would buy another Honda Accord when the time for me to buy another car comes around. it's a good everyday car to run around, commute, errands, or go out in. Good price for the piece of mind.

I bought my Accord new in 2007. The car went into the dealership to have rear driver door adjusted due to air & water leak and also a faulty center console door shortly after the purchase. Both were repaired & are fine now. The car has not given me any other mechanical problems. Just the normals replaced battery, tires, and brakes. Approaching 100k so not sure how much longer I will keep this car for. Even though I like the styling of the latest Accords, there seems to be the same cheap interior Honda is & has been known for. I will probably switch over to Hyundai since they've come a long ways & are winning awards these days!

I appreciated my 2006 Honda accord Ex 4 cyl. for its comfort and fuel economy-consistently 30 mpg- better on the highway, but the best part was when I was in a serious front end collision in which the front crumpled and absorbed the impact and the airbag did the rest-I was fine. I recommend the Honda accord! I now drive a 2007 of the same model.

Very nice upgrade from my old Mazda Tribute which had major issues. This Accord has all of the bells and whistles that my Tribute had, so I am not missing anything. I am big and tall and this is one of the most comfortable full size sedans I test drove, I especially like the seats. The exterior design is much improved from the 03-05 look especially in the rear. I am consistently getting 33-36 MPG on the highways. Once I get new tires the handling on the snow should improve. No problems with this car yet, I hope I can drive this car over 250,000 miles with normal maintenance and no mechanical catastrophes.

I just got my Accord a month ago and i love it! The car has a sporty look and it has good power, The only thing that I'm not too crazy about is that the suspension is hard, I can feel every bump on the road, I replaced the stock Michelin Tires for some Sumitomos and it got better, (by the Sumitomos tires handle the road soooo much better than the Michelin) The transmission shifts a little ruff than what I'm used to in other cars but when i had a Honda technician do a test drive he said it was normal. Besides this two things I really like the car!!!!!

It is powerful enough to get by most cars, and yet just blends in like a regular car. It isn't flashy, but I love my Accord . I only wish that I would have gotten the v6 manual instead of the auto. Simple, reliable, classy, yet sporty. I have always been satisfied with Honda products and I'm a loyal customer. Looking forward to my next car, the 2017 Honda Accord.

Don't believe the estimated mpg. I consistently get 26mpg city/hwy & 31 hwy. This V6 is fast, comfortable & fun to drive. It doesn't handle quite as well in the corners as my previous car, 1995 BMW 525i, but would blow the doors off it. You do notice road noise at hwy speeds & the ride is a little stiff, feeling the bumps in the road, but that could be the original tires. It handles well in snow even with original tires. The interior & dash are well designed to keep controls simple and easy to reach. I'm a 6'2" male & have plenty of leg & head room.

Two clicks and hold on the door unlock button lowers all windows. The jet black paint needs frequent washes but this car deserves the love. Gas mileage is as advertised, 21 mpg city. I work for the State Environmental Agency and I tried driving green but decided that fun was the better choice. Buy an Accord used and save your money. Mine was two years old and it looks brand new.

I just got this car from totaling my Lexus and like it a lot better. I love the inside and the outside and for a 4 cyl. It has a lot of power and for a two door there's a lot of room for my friends. I have not had a problem with this car yet and hope I won't and I have no complaints. I get complements from everybody at school, from family, and from total strangers.

My Honda VP 2006 Accord was purchased new. I was disappointed in the gas mileage and the quality. Before, I had a Honda Accord DX 1991-2006, this Accord was built solid. But, 2006 has noticeable road noise, doesn't turn as well. It's like Honda wanted to save money by building lighter and cheaper car. Overall 7.5.

Excellent reliabitly, great fuel economy

I bought my Accord in March 2006 new for $19,500. I do a lot of driving for work so I needed a reliable, but fuel-efficient car. The Accord has exceeded my expectations by a mile. Mine has 90K miles on it and has had absolutely nothing go wrong. I take it for routine maintenance, but do nothing else. I get about 35 MPG on the highway (with cruise) and drove it to Florida and back from NJ with ease. The interior controls are simple yet perfectly placed. The build is strong. The acceleration, while not exhilarating, is great for a 4 cylinder. All in all, this is the best investment I've ever made in a car.

Excellent Car!!

I traded in my old 00' Hyundai Elantra for this 06' Accord and I couldn't have made a better choice! I drive a lot, about 15k each year and the seats are so soft and comfy I could sleep in them! I definitely love the sunroof, steering wheel controls and black interior. Lots of compartments for storage as well. Obviously, isn't that great in the snow, so sadly I must trade in for a SUV soon. Otherwise I would keep this baby forever!

The 2006 Honda Accord features a more refined interior than previous years. When ever I ride in a car that goes for about the same price range, I get back into my Accord and appreciate how nice it is. The seats are perfect for a long trip, and the car features a good amount of room in the rear and up front. I love how smooth the car transitions between acceleration ( which is quite good ) and braking. The car handles very well and the breaks are also impressive. The stereo system in the car is also great.

I bought a manual shift 4 cylinder to save gas mileage and to better maintain control of the car... to have fun driving! I have done as well as 39 mpg highway driving, a little better than my 94 Accord stick shift. I use cruise more than the average person. You're going to get fewer mpg when you use gas with ethanol added. With the stick, you don't need 6 cylinders. Couldn't believe I actually looked at and drove others before I got another Accord. Even owned a used Camry for 2 yrs (automatic), but it doesn't have the same drivability as an Accord.

1st off, I'd like to say that this is my 4 Accord. Have owned a 89, 92, 99 now the 06. This is least favourite. I've owned the car for 6 months now (I drive about 35,000 miles per yr., mostly highway and I cannot get over the very poor gas mileage - the car is from the US but I live in Toronto. As all my cars I drive about 130 on the highway which is 75ish and this car has getting half what my 99 did with 280,000 kilos on it (original clutch/motor not touched) I've got as bad as 275 miles to the tank and best was 375. I don't push it off the line but do drive at 75 and its by far the loudest Accord inside.

I've had my Accord EX V-6 3 years now, and I've never had an ounce of trouble with it. This is my 3rd Honda and loved all of them. I've driven cross country with it twice, and loved every mile. The car runs as good now as day I bought it. Except for routine maintenance, the only problems I've had with it was a flat tire (I blame NYC streets) and burned out headlight. Tires are expensive for this car, the Michelin tires coast $270.00 a tire. If you are looking for a used car, you can never go wrong with a Honda.

We purchased this Accord in 5-06, new. It has 25K on it as of 1-09. So far it's been washed, periodic oil and filter changes and a new air filter. It's trouble free. The gold appeals to my wife and she really loves the car. Fit and finish are also good with a very nice paint job. Mileage is a consistent 25 mpg. Brakes were touchy at first and now are fine. This model is the Value Pack which is the lowest priced Accord. I could not believe we could get a new Honda for under 17K! Some of it's many features we enjoy are it's high resale value, rock solid feel and it's reliability. We got our daughter an '07 Accord and it's a carbon copy of ours, a safe, hassle-free reliable car.

I have owned this car for only 5 months, but it has been rock solid and bulletproof. Super gas mileage - several mixed city/highway tank fills have averaged 38 mpg (that's over 500 miles between fill-ups; even allowing for a small reserve). Driver's position and ergonomics are well designed: from the tilt and telescoping steering wheel to the radio/CD and HVAC controls, Honda has successfully executed the interior design of this vehicle in every detail.

The car is very reliable with great fuel economy for a midsize, but the finish out is cheap. Glove compartment drawer rattles and there is rattle from trunk lid. I've learned to live with it, instead of taking it into the shop. Driver door handle faux metal finish flaked off within the first 10,000 miles (replaced - no charge). The seat heaters only heat the seat and not the lumbar/lower back. Seats are not made for long trips (3+ hours) without a stretch break. Finish out is the biggest negative and almost enough to trading-in or sell an otherwise reliable vehicle.

2006 Honda Accord Cpe in January fully loaded (leather, Navi) with 26,000 miles on it. I did have a 2005 Civic before drove that one for 180,000 miles never in the shop accept for oil changes, and still going. I love the Accord it is quick and reliable. I now have 53,000 miles on it and I have never had an issue it drives like it is brand new. 2 things: better paint. It chips easy and does not look appealing. Better leather, not too bad and mine still looks Nice but I clean it with Lexol every 2 months. Best navi. It pin points down to the exact point of turn and finds the best routes to bring me everywhere. Recommend the car to anyone I am a Honda girl for life.

I like this car generally, although a few things annoy me about it. First is the high catch point on the clutch makes it a little hard to drive at first until you get used to it. Also, the light steering on this car make it follow the grade of the road too much. I thought the alignment was out, but it just tracks the road curvature a lot. The seats collect lint very easily. The brakes are really grabby.

Not a quiet floater, good compromise for family car and fun. Disappointed they dropped the V6 6 speed sedan for new body style. There are a few of us with kids who like to play a little.

I purchased my accord after looking at much higher-priced vehicles such as the Acura RL etc. I found that the accord was the better value overall especially since it was over 7K less. The V6 engine provides enough power. Very comfortable interior. VERY spacious rear seating area. Smooth and quiet ride. One of the best integrated navigation systems available. I love the XM especially on long trips. Fuel management works great and allows you to constantly manage your instant fuel consumption. I was able to get over 30 mpg CITY using this feature (granted i drove much slower but at speed limits). Can't go wrong with this car!

I've been commuting in this vehicle for almost three years and have about 44,000 miles on it. I average about 30 miles per gallon on a V-6 engine. This car has a lot of power and drives like a sports car. The only problem I had is the engine light came on three times because the valves needed adjustment, which was covered under warranty. Fit and finish and ride quality are typical Honda: top notch. My only complaint has been the resale value, but that may have corrected itself since gas priced have increased. In a nutshell, this vehicle offers 4 cylinder gas mileage, with a potent V-6 under the hood.

This is my 2nd Accord and my 4th Honda. I absolutely think they make the best cars you can buy. Fun to drive, most reliable, and low maintenance costs. If you are looking for a worry free fun car to drive that will last 10 or more years and hold its value the whole time, look no further than the Accord. I think this Accord is the best looking. They ruined the looks in 08.

I traded in an F150 for my Accord for gas mileage. So far I am completely satisfied with the performance and mileage of the 4cyl. My biggest complaint is the front seats are rock hard and the lumbar is too high and not adjustable. I spend a lot of time driving and have constant back pain from the seats. Despite the impressive engine, I wish I could get rid of the car already because of the seats. My other complaint is the brakes are extremely touchy and lock up very easily when wet (from rain, etc.).

By far this is the best Accord ever! On a recent trip (June 2008) the mileage computer registered 511 miles, we still had 1/8 tank left, computer showed 39 mpg. After filling up I rechecked the mpg with a calculator and it showed 40 mpg! I don't know what Honda was thinking but my Hybrid Accord is outperforming every other Hybrid out there while 260 horses provide pure zooming fun!

I bought this car new and it now has 28k miles. It has been trouble free, though I do need to have the drivers window adjusted now b/c it squeaks. Recently I began driving slower (the speed limit) and it has consistently turned in 36 mpg, which is phenomenal. The car will accelerate quickly when you push it, the 4 wheel double wishbone suspension (gone on the new model) handles great and is lightweight. Honda did an excellent job on this car and I highly recommend it. I do wish it had a 6 speed manual on the 4 cylinder. My favorite feature is the electrochomatic speedo display. Great job, Honda, in creating a perfectly balanced, safe reliable, affordable car. I suggest Boston speakers

This is my first ever Honda and I have to say that so far I have NO regrets. I have always owned a Toyota and although I love Toyota, I love Honda as well! I bought this Accord with 38,000 miles on it and it rides like a dream. I love the 6 disc CD changer and the the control features in the middle are easily accessible, which was a problem in my Camry, I had to reach farther to change my radio stations. I also love the controls on the steering wheel! Awesome!! Very comfortable ride. Hugs the road. I've gotten tons of compliments on my Accord and most importantly my kids love it, too!!

Purchased HAH used for $24K w/ only 7K miles. Like many, I am a little disappointed with the mpg for a hybrid but considering its a 6 cylinder, I really can't complain too much considering I average 26 mpg and have gotten up to 37 mpg on long trips. This car is so comfortable w/ leather seats, handles smooth and has great pickup. I drove a '97 Camry before this and, although I was very happy with Toyota, I really love how my HAH drives. Also have ridden in a Prius and the seats are so uncomfortable. I really have no regrets on my HAH.

I bought this car used with 31,000 miles at 20% below Kelley Blue Book. The vehicle is very quiet, love the leather as well as the interior. The performance of a V6 with the MPG of a 4 cylinder. Despite the reviews for the Hybrid Accord I love this vehicle.

Initial mpg 22/27 calculated by driving and topping off frequently. My wife did a little better @ 24/28. She just broke 20k and now we get 25/36. There are times when we get a real bad number (quite possibly from gas station pump error). The city mileage is about the same as a regular 6-cyl. Hwy fluctuates from (minus bad readings under 21 mpg!!!) 27-37.5. The more "broken-in" the better it seems at the moment. I am really curious about the rest of folks with this car. Are you all getting better results as the vehicle gets older? One small neg is the "jerk" when you step off the brake and touch the gas petal. The work around is let the brake go, wait 2 sec then touch the gas.

Loud road noise. Annoying. Radio is too week for proper adjustment of road noise. Problems with the heater, runs hot and cool. Remote sucks, I need to be up against the car just about, might as well use the key. Tires on this car are too expensive and not necessary for this model (speed rating wise). Pick up lags a bit. Pulls to the right even on flat roads with the explanation by trained factory techs "all Honda accords do this and we like to call it the 6 second rule", that's stupid. Did I mention the poor remote reception? Cool looking radio minimum features, no speed volume increase, mute. Wipers are poor and the defogger works 1/3 of the windshield. Otherwise great color!

Love my car at 35,000 miles absolutely nothing has gone wrong. The ride is smooth .. there is a little road noise but is completely covered by light radio..

After owning Honda's for the last 30 years I am on my last one. Why you ask? It's the dealers and Honda corporate US. My local dealer service dept has one great service manager and I could do without the remainder of this dept. They continue to increase oil change fees and recently wanted to charge $129 for a transmission fluid change. Went to another dealer and got it done for $49. HONDA CORP if you read the online forums then please note you have lost another customer. I am tired of dealers nickel /diming me to death. $300 for a 30k service and the main thing you do is oil/filter, air filter, cabin filter ?!?!?! Sorry, guess it's Toyota from now on.

I live in Toronto and purchased this car through a broker who bought it from the US, incl his 1500 fee i believe i saved about 2500 once. There are couple of things that the American cars don't have that I miss (this is my 4th Accord) the windshield washer reservoir is much smaller and it has no low level light is the big one. Also, i can't get over how much more power this 4cy has over the 99 but it is using about 35% more gas for a similar trip (I'm getting 350 miles per tank) vs 650-700k for my 99 with 300,000k on and had only one tune up. This one is a 5spd auto, tons of power off the line and at 130k. Very well screwed together, feels solid, no rattles, good value.

I wear dress pants to work and now the leather on the driver seat has little white marks (or holes) where it lost it's black color. I drive the car for about 30 minutes each day. My office pants rubbing against the leather should not cause it to lose its color! The other issue I had is the AC condenser was damaged by road debris because it is made of soft material and there is no mesh or grille in front to prevent debris from flying in.

I own a 2006 LX SE accord with automatic. I have always liked Hondas and owned a few in the last 20 years. This is yet another great product from Honda which is fun to drive, reliable and powerful. The car handles great and the 4 cylinder, 2.4 liter engine provides plenty of power. I would have preferred the manual transmission, but agreed on an auto to make everyone happy! The SE with alloys and CD changer and steering wheel audio controls just add to the fun. Great vehicle. It replaced a 1999 Mercedes E320 which turned out to be a piece of junk and had to be replaced to avoid long-term major expenditures. No more Benz for me, that's for sure.

I bought this car after hearing rave reviews and have been very disappointed. V6 has the power, but the handling is substandard. The AC comes on when car is started up. \Such a pain to have to turn it off every morning. I paid 27 for this car and trade in value 19k. Previous car was VW Passat and the Germans have the answer with handling. Will not buy another Honda, will go back to VW or look elsewhere.

I heard how great the Accord is from this website, from my experience that was wrong. My 06 Accord was the first new car I've ever purchased. I got the extended warranty, the xylon coating, and I check its vitals (oil, tire pressure, power steering, etc) weekly. I avoid rough, pot-holed, bumpy roads (and take it real slow when they can't be avoided) yet I have had soo many problems with this car. Ex.:In under 4 months my power steering started spazzing out. I had to take it in and explain to the technician (who just wanted to top off the fluid) that the reservoir shouldn't be virtually empty that quick (lots of effort went into getting them to properly inspect it).And there are more...

This is the single best bang for your buck in the $26K and under category. Easily. Ride quality, style, comfort are all incredible. Sporty looking car (the V6 has enough power to back it up but the I-4 is a few ponies short). Everyone I've had in the car has complimented it.

The V6 6-speed manual sedan is a purist automobile. It offer the best of both worlds - a family car, yet plenty of power to pass "boy racers" and Billy Bob's gargantuous SUV. Plenty of room for car seats in the back and comperable room for luggage space in the trunk. The ride is friendly, quiet, and comfortable; although, the vehicle stability control is too intrusive when you want to test the car. The VSC module is always on default, regardless that it is not manually turned on as it would be during wintery conditions. Make it a completely passive option and allow the owners to play in the sandbox without the oversight of a computer module.

Fun car, lacking a little oomph.

This is my first car. It's a great first car: safe, reliable, relatively stylish. I regret getting the 4 cylinder engine though. Gas mileage is great, but it lacks the extra oomph I like on the highway or simply starting off at a green light. The interior is beautiful - I got all of the features and the navigation is extremely easy to use. In conclusion: great coupe! Great first car! If you like speed and power, get the V6.

I baught my honda about a year ago, and I have to say that I am very pleased overall. It could be a little better in the snow, but still does ok in the winter. My only dissapointment was when I went to trade the car in a few weeks ago to upgrade to an 07, and the dealership told me that they would give me $16,500 on trade in for it. (baught new for about $25,000) a little dissapiointing seeing as thought I thaugt hondas were suppose to keep their value well. Still a great car though. I have no problem holding on to.

As you can see I've owned many Hondas over the years. I also don't put much stock in a review of a car after just 2 days of ownership! I've had this car for 10 months and it is absolutely great. Boring looks, but a sweet ride. The V6 has plenty of power for flat Ohio and the roads here are the biggest reason to ever complain about ride and handling, not the car itself. It's significantly bigger than a Civic (Honda # 9) and while I can live with the bland look, it'd be nice to get Civic-like gas mileage. On the other hand, I feel much more safe and secure in inclement weather driving the Accord. Room for 5 easily and quieter than the Civic too. This is really just about the perfect car.

I wouldn't recommend any other brand to anyone and I have been in the business for 15 years. Can't wait to see what the new one will look like! I'm sure I'll be a fan as well. I can't tell you what I would improve on I had a lot of choices to make when I chose this one, I feel my choice was best, and have nothing but good things to tell anyone looking to buy an Accord.

I'm sick of reading the reviews that say "had the car 2 days, best car EVER". I've had this one 9 months and it is a great car. I don't buy BMWs or Mercedes or Audis -- just Hondas, so I'm not going to complain how this car doesn't compare to them. You want a Honda, then this is the car to buy. The mileage is decent but not Civic-like, but then it's a V6 not a 4 cylinder. Leather is comfortable and seats heat well. AC is great and it handles perfectly well (at least at the sane speeds I drive) so I can't help you if you want to drive at 90 mph+. But if you're just an "Average Joe" and just want reliable, decent, fairly priced vehicles, safe for the family, then this is the one to get

Purchase a 2006 VP with M/T. Excellent car, comfortable but at the same time provides a sporty feel. Well designed interior with above average fit and finish. Best 4 cyl. engine in its class, revs without effort with good power delivery. Nice steering feel, just needs more on-center feel. After 14,000 miles only problem is a little bit of noise coming from the front passenger area, something is vibrating on bumpy roads. Trying to identify the source before taking it to the dealer. Do not like the maintenance reminder system, would prefer a table in the owner’s manual with miles and/or months at which the car should be service. Beware of dealer’s preventive maintenance.

I have owned the car for 15 months and I love it. However, there are some things that are just poorly thought out. 1> Map lights - these are unusable. The moment my wife turns them on, I can barely see anything on the road. 2> Tires - Within a week of buying the car, the inner wall on one tire cracked. Dealer refused to fix (Herb Chambers). Went to Sears and got free replacement. For a family car like this, a 'V' speed rated $200 tire is an overkill.

This is my 3rd new honda in the past 3yrs for my family. 2 previous were practically flawless, however this one has been somewhat of a PIA. 3rd gear is problematic to shift into at times, and dealer "cannot replicate the problem". I'd challenge they haven't really tried. Known problem for this transmission in a minority of cars. I don't have time to do other peoples jobs so I suffer through it. Otherwise I really like the car, it's very comfortable, handles well, is good in winter etc. Just wish that MPG was a bit better, I have yet to hit the HWY rating even at 65mph on even interstate I'm falling 3-4mpg short. 3rd Gear is synchro issue, but dealer won't fix it, making car less fun.

All the normal great things you get from Honda, good design, comfort, reliability. The engine is powerful and smooth, and the 6-speed transmission adds some sportiness. But don't fool yourself, this car is sill a Honda Accord. You're not getting a "cheaper" sports sedan by going to the manual. Doesn't handle like a Buick, but leaves something to be desired. The car needs a better handling package, upgraded suspension with wider tires and upgraded brake system.

I have not had one problem, and my gas mileage varies between 34 and 38 highway.

I thought the bugs were out of this car when I purchased it. I was wrong. In cold weather, around 20 degrees, or less, it runs rough with a power loss and that's not acceptable for a $30,000 vehicle. I only have 3000 miles on the car. Honda replaced a "module" and the problem is still there. This tells me Honda does not know what to do. In warmer temperatures, it runs fine. I'd love to hear from other Accord Hybrid owners who have this problem, and what you did to solve it. I need help. These cars are rare and I see none on the road and no one to talk to. I'd like to give some expensive, free advice to anyone considering this Hybrid. Wait. There are problems. Thank You, Wyatt

This is the first time repeating a Manufacturer, and will probably go Honda for the next time as well. After 5 trouble-free years with a 2001 CR-V, it was time to change to something a bit more 'Adult' since we didn't really care for the new CRV styling. We purchased a new '06 leftover in November from the same dealer. The Accord is a dream to drive with little or no fatigue. Fuel economy is better than the sticker,(35+ on a recent Boston trip) as was the CRV. Excellent handling without being to jarring on the road with the many obstacles here in NYC.

Having researched it mostly on edmunds.com, there were no surprises, except for a little for torque steer than expected. It is extremely fun to drive, fit and finish is fantastic, the oversteer could easily be corrected, at the price, it has no peer and is 10k less then a comparable BMW

Yes it's dependable. It has some get up and go. But it's a dull, boring car. The automatic transmission grabs and seems clunky. Descending hills and approaching stops, the transmission holds the car back and there is no way to turn this "feature" off. Apparently the feature is called "brake assist", but there needs to be an off button for this and there is not. Its very tough to get used to. I rented a Maxima on a recent trip and that was VERY nice. Fast, fun to drive, more leg room and no grabby transmission. In my opinion, if you're interested in the Accord, test drive the Maxima first.

I did my home-work at Edmunds.com & Honda's website, which was pretty good. It helped me pick the car, color, & options, for a list price. Using a buying service, helped me get a great price! Actually driving a new one, showed me much improvement over my '97 Accord LX. The horsepower up 36, is at 166 & zippy! I ordered RED with spoiler, fog lights, & black bra, which get's the looks! The gray leather is excellent, making me feel like I'm in my Dad's Lexus. The CD Sound System, with XM radio, is superb & the cruise control right-on. What makes it really fun is the Navigation System. It controls the CD/Radio/XM & Air Conditioning with Voice Commands. I get 24 to 31 mpg, urban/hwy. Nice!

I do a combination of city and highway driving. The car is fun to drive and is quiet. I am disappointed with the gas mileage, however, it has improved slightly over in the nine months I have had it. Another disappointment is (and this may be my fault) that the windows somehow open after I park and leave the vehicle. This has happened twice and once the interior got wet because it rained. The Navigation system needs tweaking. When entering addresses and changing the city it reverts back to California cities, and sometimes it doesn't take the information I try to enter.

This is my third new car in 5 years, and by far has been my favorite. The acceleration is awesome. I drive an average of 300 miles a day for my job, so a comfortable car yet fun car is a must! This car is so comfortable, peppy, and absolutely beautiful. The aerodynamic body design and styling is a work of art! The gas mileage is average for a V6, but I think the acceleration on this tops my 2003 Mustang GT, which had a 4.6L V8. Others complain about the road noise, but I don't find it to be too bad. Besides, I am too busy blaring the clear and totally awesome sound system! XM is a nice feature.

I have owned several Maximas , which were good cars. But with the gasoline situation, the Honda is the car for these times. Excellent build quality, reliability, and mileage. It is flexible too. I carry my kayak on the folded down back seat in the trunk. Even with city driving in 3rd gear, I still don't go lower than 30 mpg. My wife got an Accord EX coupe at the same time. We are permanent Honda owners as long as they stay as good or better than this. The mileage on the 4cyl is nearly the same as on the hybrid.

I bought this car thinking I was going to get 30mpg average, but I was wrong. I get 23-25 and to me I was only saving really little on gas. I love the car overall; the quality, the smoothness, the features, the power and performance. I mean for 30-33k I think I could of gotten the other accords and saved money and gas. They made the build (exterior) look the same and you really have to drive that car really really slow to even get 25-30 mpg. I am upset for them to even advertised 38 mpg because I have never gotten that good of a mileage driving smooth and slow.

I tried the 2007 V-6 Toyota Camry and compared to the 2006 Honda Accord V-6, the Toyota has no comprarisson to the Honda, it accelerates way better, much more comfortable, I feel safer in the Honda. It's a great car !!!!

I own a new 2006 Honda Accord EX Coupe 4 cylinder and it has to be the most reliable and best styled car inside and out. i love how the interior of my car is. For the money that u pay for the car it is well worth it. for the price the interior of the car makes u feel like a million dollars the way they set it up and the outside of the car has a sleek and sporty look to it to make it look like a sports car.

It's great driving a smaller new car

I had a very large turning radius in my late husband's Cadillac...What a pleasure it is to be able to make a turn in one movement... It took me a while to get used to the inner mechanics and stickshift [automatic] on the console [instead of the wheel]. I still have difficulty releasing the hand brake because I'm not as strong as I used to be. But, now its a real delight to zip around! P.S. I'm 88 years old.

My best Honda yet

My first Honda was a 1991 Accord DX 4 cylinder with no options, not even a radio. Had one put in later. I drove it for 145,000 miles and it still ran better than any other car I have ever had. I am 74 years old so I have had a few cars in my time. My next Honda was a 1991 Accord EX with leather interior and a 6 cylinder engine that only had 66,000 miles on it when I traded it in on my present 2006 Accord EX with the 244 HP 6 cylinder engine. All these Honda's were for the wife to drive but this last one I really love to drive. I am a fairly large person and the previous cars were too small for me to drive 300 to 400 miles in one day. This 2006 Honda, I can drive forever. Keep building them.

The car is basically a good car. It is the quality and dealer experience that ruins it. I bought it with 6 miles on the odo and it died on me when I was driving it,no power, nothing.A few mins. later it would restart. It was in for repair twice in the first 2 weeks. It was a bad engine computer like I told them to check the first time.But I'm not a "mechanic", so what do I know? Now the paint on the bottom window trim is curling back and I have a bulge in the A pillar airbag cover/trim piece. Also I have an electrical problem that they say is "normal" the headlights dim and the idle gets rough and the hvac fan surges. I say bad alternator, they say it just cant keep up and that its normal.

Nothing but a Honda for me

Traded in our '03 CRV for a new Accord, didn't really need AWD anymore, and wanted better gas mileage. Tried the Camry XLE first, nice ride, but lacked a few features i wanted, like dual zone A/C, and didn't like the wood trim. Accord's interior is top notch, nice design, clear gauges, comfy seats, lots of storage space.

Excellent car!...FUN to drive

I bought my Accord a month ago and already logged 3,500 miles due to a long trip. Therefore, I have spent plenty of time in the car and can say it lives up to other positive reviews I've read. Hwy mileage was 30+ MPG and hovers around 23-25 in city/hwy mixed driving. Onto the features...the interior finish is terrific and seems way ahead of the competition. Navi sys is precise and integrates audio, climate control, and other settings into its functionality . Most importantly, this car is VERY fun to drive. The car moves in any gear, and takes off when pushed above 4K RPM's! There are sportier-handling rides, but it is still very responsive, yet comfortable on long trips.

Car was damaged when I purchased it from the dealer. It started showing signs of rust on the passenger door just behind the hinges. Dealer said he was aware of the problem when I purchased the certified used car, The car was only 2 months old when I bought the car. I contacted Honda and they stated that it was not their problem.

My 2006 Honda Hybrid has quality written all over it! This is my third Honda, and I know my next one will also be a Honda. I think Honda did an excellent job designing the suspension. The gas mileage is a little disappointing, but that is probably me being a little heavy on the gas pedal. I love it.

This Hybrid is much quicker than I expected - in fact feels like our Acura TL - Type S. Great for passing on too narrow roads. Chicago to Atlanta and return - averaged 38 mpg - w/ average highway speed of about 70 mph Fully recommend this car as is - And it's both good for the environment - and in a few years (depending on $ of gas) our bottom line total car cost.

I bought this car after driving 4 door sedans for years as a caregiver for my folks. I've in the past, driven Honda's and always loved them..never had any reason to take them back in for any type of noises, etc. I love this care even tho I've had it such a short time. It is very sporty...was a showroom floor model. A bit sportier, with all the bells and whistles that I really didn't need, but get many compliments on it and just having lots of fun with it. My 90 yr. old father even enjoys it!!! Would never own anything but a Honda again in the future!! I know I'll get even more enjoyment out of it this fall and winter, as I'll be able to utilize my sunroof. The stereo is awesome also!

I traded my 2000 Accord Coupe back in 2002, for a Mazda. Worst Mistake I Ever Made...that is until I traded my 2002 Mazda for a Brand New 2006 Accord Coupe! Smartest Move ever made! The Gas Mileage is AWSOME! The Horsepower is more than necessary when needed. I still get surprised when I hit the gas from a complete stop or to pass on the Highway. Take it from me...my original Honda Accord Coupe did not give me any problems at all. The are one of the MOST reliable cars on the road. I expect my NEW '06 Model will be just as dependable, if not better.

The special edition Honda Accord(5 speed, 4 cyl) is a great value. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly and gracefully. It seems that Honda could improve on the mileage if it would increase the final drive ratio on the 5th gear (runs about 2800 rpm at 65 mph). The air conditioning unit is great, but it has a noticeable drag on the acceleration and the gas mileage (-2 mpg when active). Overall we get about 29 mpg with our driving mix. The best highway mileage has been 35 mpg and the worst city mileage about 25 mpg. The SE version comes with the carbon fiber interior and cloth standard (we upgraded to the dealer installed leather and it is great).

My first new car purchased and after five months of driving couldn't be happier with it. Overall its a solid car. Plenty of luxury for a nonluxury nameplate car. I decided to get the 6 cycl to be comparable to the power of my previous car a 93 Chrysler Concorde, but also for the better look of dual exhausts and stability control not offered in the 4 cycl. Love the driver friendly interior layout, from the white lighted dashboard to the intuitive controls. Folding down rear seats is rather cumbersome.

Granted, I've only owned three cars but this is the best, and I'm torn what to do at the end of my lease because I LOVE this car! The 4 cylinder 166 HP gives plenty of zoom (for a 4 cylinder anyway, it really has plenty of "get up and go" - my last 2 cars were American 4 cylinders that I had to fight with to go forward). It's comfortable for road trips and much more spacious than my last two cars. Gas mileage is not as great as my last car which got around 30 mpg city, BUT, I will say the sticker said 24 city/34 highway, and I always exceed that - usually 25-26 city, and last road trip I got about 36 highway - can't complain about that.

I've owned GM cars for 15 years & never once thought of owning a Honda. After big problems with the LeSabre & the Lacrosse, it was time for a change. The Accord was just the answer I was looking for. Smooth ride and quietness makes the high marks of this car. A little road noise is present, but not a bother. Will keep this car for long time.

Drove a 2006 Accord (EX, V6, Nav) one day, took it on the usual route. The car would shake at idle. I figured with a V6, this car should be rock solid. Not much power. The nav system is horrible! I don't want to talk to my car. Just give me a button to press. Car rode a bit rough, seats were nice, cabin was somewhat quiet. Overall, not very impressed. Car did not feel like it was bolted together very well. A shame too because I've always wanted an Accord. I ended up purchasing a Maxima.

We bought our manual VP for $16,300 after the labor day weekend . At this price this car is a great value with all the neat features--front, side and curtian airbags, ABS, power everything even the trunk release on key fob, AC, fold down rear seat(although no split). Don't care about the extras the next up trim LX has (more speakers, power mirrors, etc) which cost nearly $2K more. It handles great and rides comfortably and is extremely quiet. If you're just looking for cheap and reliable basic transportaiton, the Accord can't be beat AT THIS PRICE. However our new car had a problem with the rear seat fold down mechanism but corrected itself somehow when I brought it in.

The Honda Accord Ex,Leather,with Navigation was our final choice, Love the car and it gets the posted mpg both city and highway. I feel the Honda will hold its value and last a very long time.

I had been shopping for a new or late model used car for about a year, I wanted a luxury car because of all the extras. I checked out the Honda EX with leather and Navigation and my search was over.If there is a better car it must cost a lot more. It is the only car I use that I can get into without bumping my head, (I am 78 yrs old and have a Volvo wagon and a Mercury Villager Van) I am very happy with this goodlooking comfortable car.

In two words GREAT CAR. Good drive, handling and has most of the interior features one needs. When compared to the 07 Camry....much better ride/handling. I do not need to feel like I am driving a boat like a camry and I am satisfied with the space available as I do not have a tall family... Wish for some features namely MP3/WMA playback, automatic height adjustment, outside temperature gauge and this is cause the competion(Toyota 07) offers them for the same price..and I did have to compromise on these features for better ride/handling.

I purchased my Black Honda Accord EX Leather/Navigation in late May, 2006. I love the look of the car. The seats are comfortable, and the steering feels just right. I get a lot of road noise, and the engine runs loud especially when accelerating. The ride is not as smooth as my Toyota Sienna. The dashboard dimmer light is in an akward position. The voice activation feature leaves much to be desired. Various commands not related to the a/c toggles the a/c on and off. Manual audio controls are needed. Trying to use the touch screen while driving is dangerous.

The folks in marysville ohio forgot to torque the front suspension properly when building the car. It took the dealer a couple tries to fix this. Car drives great, acceleration is quick, first tank of gas yielded 34.5 mpg (engine is still breaking in). I am very pleased with fuel economy. Manual trans is the way to go. My wife has a 4cyl auto accord and the manual accelerates stronger. Handles and brakes well. Love the value of the se model. Well balanced car in terms of acceleration/mpg. Highly recommend replacing rear speakers with boston acoustics from crutchfield.

Originally looking at the Civic for the gas mileage and the looks but the Accord's ride and comfort won me over. Had to go with leather because the fabric just looked too cheap and can see how gets dirty easily. Gas mileage hopefully will get better 22- 24 city/hwy with AC on. This car is great value for the money. Fits easily in one car garage.

We drove 4 adults with lots of luggage and traveled over Colorado mountain passes and you couldn't believe how much power it had and the gas mileage was still 30 mpg. On one trip I got 38 mpg. I also got my 1st ticket in this car, it has so much power and fun to drive that I wasn't paying attention.

Had several SUV's in the past 7 years. Decided to downsize to my Honda due to gas prices and lack of driving excitement. Will not buy an SUV again. What can I say, its a wonderful car. I commute 70 miles per day, averaging 25 mpg from 65% highway, 35 % city driving. Great power, especially accelerating at highway speeds even though I must say, I test drove the Accord EX 4CYL model and found it to have more than enough power. I felt that the V6 had a nicer look though (larger wheels, dual exhaust). It has the feel of a very well made car. Great looking interior (tan leather, with fray/tan dashboard) and very comfortable power seats up front. Nice size car, and the new rear end looks great.

I have owned this vehicle for about 6 months now and currently have 7200 miles on it. No problems whatsover to date. Previously owned a 2000 Honda Accord LX with V6. Performance has greatly increased going from a 200 Horsepower V6 to 244 Horsepower. Transmission shifts seamlessly and throttle response is almost immediate. This is a very decked out ride for the money. Build quality is good but nothing spectacular. The car comes standard with many features but does not have option for blue tooth. Gas mileage is good for a V6 with this many horses under the hood (Avg. 22 city 29 Hwy). I am happy with this vehicle and would probably buy again. Might take a look at the new 2007 Camry.

I bought this car with economics in mind. I have a long communte (70 mi) round trip. I have been getting 32mpg on average. I recently took this on a long trip, and I did get 34 mpg. Quiet, plenty of power, great mpg, never have gotten under 30!!! It's not a thrill to drive, it's still a 4cyl economy 4 door, but it does handle well, and is very smooth and quiet. If you are looking for a greaet daily driver, with enough room for a car seat and stroller, this is the car for you!

The Accord's ride is rough with alot of road noise on rough roads. The interior is well laid out. For the price of the car, there are many safety features with airbags front, side and rear side bags. The 4 cylinder gas mileage has been exceptional around 34-38 mpg driving on the highway going anywhere fron 65 - 80 mph.

A very solid, comfortable, and well-built car. Good, economical highway car. Car looks more expensive than it is. For the price, the car is very well-equipped and I have not missed any extras that are available on the other Accord models. Also, the car came with airbags and ABS as standard equipment. I am used to driving a small Civic, and have not had any trouble adjusting to the larger Accord.

The Accord is kinda boring looking IMHO, both inside and out, but its quality is outstanding, it drives great, the 4 cyl. with auto is VERY responsive and a great performer, and there is no question that the Accords last 150,000 to over 250,000 miles with no problems - and that's what is most important to me.

Great car, easy to use navigation, more comfortable seats than my CTS cad. Handles well, corners well. The only gripe at all is road noise. It's been undercoated twice, but road noise is more than today's modern cars should have. I know that Honda, with all their technology, should be able to make this car quieter.

To me, the car just feels right – the seat (power leather), handling, road feel, I4 power. On the typical bad roads in my area, the ride is a bit harsh. Better tires than OEM Bridgestones may help. Fuel mileage is amazing for a car this size. I have not gotten less than 31 mpg and have gotten as high as 38 mpg! Who needs a hybrid?

I have only had this car two months and knew the first day I had made a mistake. It is very uncomfortable, hard to get in and out, and rides very rough. We are already looking for a larger car to replace it with. The Accord is a small car and should not be referred to as a family sedan. It is more suited for teenagers and young adults who aren't interested in comfort.

I purchased my brand new 2006 Honda Accord SE about five weeks ago and what a disappointment The car is a rattle trap, idles like an old tractor and the gas mileage is nowhere near the one advertised. I went back to the dealership thinking that it might be something wrong with the idle in MY car but surprise... after checking the idle in 6 brand new Accords they all proved to have the same problem. My advice if you are thinking to buy this car is to take a LONG test drive let the car idle with air conditioning on in heavy traffic so you will see if you can put up with the shaking. Do you research... be informed. My other car is a Honda Prelude and is one of the best cars I've ever driven.

This car makes you want to drive!

My '06 Accord V-6 Coupe is the most enjoyable car to drive that I've owned or rented in the past 30 years. It offers excellent handling & strong acceleration, reasonable gas economy for a V-6 (I get 22 - 28 mpg), an attractive interior (w/leather seats) & exterior, and a large trunk for trips to the home improvement stores & vacations. So far it's been totally perfect. All in all -- a terrific and fun car. What more could you ask for in a 2 door car -- unless you have to haul a family around?

Handling not as good as 2002 Accord I had before. Doors are hard to close. Controls for air condidtioning, defrost, etc. poorly located, which makes it necessary to take your eyes of the road. Hood cannot be opened unless you get out of car. Dashboard lights go on when you open the door, then get brighter when you put on the key, then go off, then go on again when you turn on the key. All these games with the dashboard lights are very annoying and serve no purpose. I like the gas gauge and I appreciate the excellent gas mileage, but all in all, I am disappointed with this car. Not as good as the previous Accords I owned.

This is my first Honda. So far everyone in my family has one. I test drove the 2006 Honda Accord EX and the the '07 Toyota Camry LE. I preferred the way the Honda felt, plus it has more HP than the Camry. My 8 yr. old daughter also prefered the Accord over the Camry because the backseat was more comfortable for her with out a headrest pushing her head forward.

After getting the Accord, I found myself finding excuses to go out and drive just to be with the car. I love the smooth acceleration of the V6. The exterior styling is sleek, and I highly recommend that you fork over the extra money and get the spoiler package, because it makes the car look so much better. The interior is great, and there are so many things you can play with. Sound system is awesome, music is crisp and clear, XM is a nice little gift, and I think I will subscribe once my trial period is over.

After testing a few cars in its class I decided to buy this one due to the price and general feel of the car. It doesn't have as many of the frills as others (Maxima, TL, even '07 Camry SE) and doesn't have as much HP and torque, but was a nice ride. There's enough power and the style is conservative but sleek. Probably the only gripe I have is that the clutch is a little funny. I thought it was just my lack of skills with a stick but after letting a few of my buddies drive it and after driving a few other cars, I realized that it's the car's problem. I read a few forums and other people stated the same problem. 1st and 2nd gear is a bit picky about the way you shift and release the clutch.

Best value for the price.

I looked at the Sonata, Camry (07), Passat, and Mazda 6 before deciding on the Accord LX SE. Although some had more equipment for the money, they all lacked in either quality, fit, finish, ride, performance, or road noise. In fact, I was really surprised when Honda's 4cyl out performed most of the of the competitor's 6cyl models. This given, that fuel economy is pretty close to EPA estimates. With 80% of my miles being in town, I am getting right at 26 MPG. My only problem so far is getting used to driving a manual again. The engine is so quiet that I sometimes forget to shift. Although this is my first experience with Honda they have certainly earned my respect and future business.

I bought it two weeks ago and am very pleased. 29.4 MPG in second fillup on city/country roads (no highways!). I looked at others but decided on the Accord due to fuel economy and roomy interior. I was willing to spend a few thousand more if I could get more value but couldn't justify it based on what I was getting with the Accord. I went out with my wife and another couple last night and they couldn't believe the comfort and room in the back. On the downside, I wish they would have a thermometer that it easy to access. Other annoying omissions include no mute button on the radio, no fuel economy guage and no compass!

I've had my 06 Accord SE for about 3 weeks. Overall I'm very pleased with the car. The 4 cyclinder for the most part provides enough power. You'll notice a little sluggishness with the AC running. I love the interior. The look is clean and well thought out. The dash illumination is crisp and clear. No gaudy color combinations or cluttering displays. The ride is a little stiff, but smooth and responsive. You may notice a little road noise, however, I didn't feel it was as pronouced as I was lead to believe. Complaints.. glove box doesn't appear to line up with its surroundings, trunk feels extremely cheap. If you're looking at a basic 4 cyl EX check out the SE, you'll save a little money.

This is my first Honda and I got it loaded. I have 4800 miles at this writing and I get 34.1 mpg on freeway at 65 mph, and my commute to work speed of 32 mph around town nets me 24.6 mpg. Nice interior and roomy trunk however back seat is two adults only. Acceleration is good both off line and mid speed for passing. Don't waste your money on the iPod link, it does not work worth a darn and my dealership had little experience with it. Had to take it back twice just to get the main unit to see the iPod and forget searching for your favorite album or artist they can't make it work right. Stereo is decent but could be better. The ride is firm but sporty.

Honda has done it again! 250 horsepower and still 30 mpg! I opted for the navigation simply because of the eye candy and the great voice recognition system that comes along with it. It has superior handling to the toyota avalon and also superior performance to the ford five hundred. I spent 3 weeks flip flopping between dealers and researching the pros and cons to each vehicle and this is by far the best for the money. You can easily spend 35,000 on a car with all the features this has but you dont need to, its all here in this 30k car! The leather is very soft and the seats very comfortable. Because of the color I chose I got wood trim and it is top quality! I would greatly recommend this car

I've had my Accord for about 4 months, and recently returned from a 1200+ mile trip, averaging 35 mpg (mostly highway). There is more than adequate power for me with the 4cyl engine (and use of regular gas is a plus). Even though the drive is on the sporty/stiff side, it's quite comfortable. The interior is tastefully and thoughtfully designed. I feel like I'm in a luxury sports sedan without the luxury price. Not a stand-out car (seems like I'm always passing one on the street), but a solid/reliable vehicle. If only it weren't one of the top stolen vehicles in my city...

Previously owned a 2003 Accord EXL V6, but switched to the 4 cyl. for nimbler handling/steering feel/fuel economy. Seriously considered the 2007 Camry XLE 4 cyl. & 2006 Hyundai Sonata V6 Limited, but the Accord won out for overall performance & styling, though the Sonata offered more car for the money and, in some areas, is superior to the Accord/Camry. The Accord's appeal is in doing so many things well, without any serious flaws. The reliability & resale are added bonuses.

I chose this car over the others because the Accords I drove were smooth and comfortable. The new one that was delivered for me shifts harder then the ones I drove and my daughter's '06 Accord V6/5A. I've had it to the dealer 3 times. They have reprogrammed the PCM twice and it has helped the uncomfortable shifts; but not corrected it to what I found was normal in others. Please take the car for a long drive first.

Previous to this 2006 Honda Accord I owned a new 2000 Accord EX 4 cyl. for 6 years. After 5 transmissions and numerous other mechanical problems I was very anti Honda. I shopped around for months determined not to buy another Honda. I test drove everything in it's class and I was not impressed with anything. I went to a Honda dealership and drove the 2006 Accord and fell in love with it. I've had it 2 months now and my only complaints are that the exterior paint chips very easy and the car rolls a little when you go from park to drive. The gas mileage is not bad for a 6 cyl. I get about 300 miles for a tank of gas. Overall, I am very happy with this car and would recommend it.

I love my new Accord. The Special Edition package has enough feature for me. No need to go overboard with the EX. I have been driving Hondas all my life, so my review might be a little biased. 88 Accord, 90 Civic, 92 Accord, and a 2000 Civic. I test drove the competition before purchasing my Accord. None compared to the Accord when weighing features, reliability, value, and performance against price. The engine is amazing for a 4 cylinder. Plenty of power. I like out running all the "punks" in thier tuner cars. The 5 speed automatic is so smooth. Drops gears fast for brisk acceleration. No regrets.

First round trip of 520 miles, mostly freeway, I averaged 38+ mpg w/5 speed manual (but I'm a conservative driver). Handling is responsive but the ride is a little stiff.

I sold my dependable Civic after 6 years and upgraded to a 2006 Accord. I'm glad they offered a VP version - the power windows feature on the LX wasn't worth the extra cost. Excellent interior layout design: simple, elegant, and functional. No ego inflation needed! I'm amazed at how quiet the ride is. Braking is a bit soft but you adjust to it. There's a lot of features built into this car such as daytime running lights, adjustable instrumentation panel brightness (love this!), and standard side airbags. Looked at the Altima and Camry but found that Honda was still the overall winner!

I've owned the car for 4 months (4K miles) (See "This car has it all" review posted in March). I'm very happy with my purchase so far. I'm getting about 27 mpg, mostly highway and some city). I'm glad I purchased the 4 cy. to save in gas. However, it doesn't handle like the 6cy. I recently drove a 4 Dr 4cy 2006 Accord and it corners a little better than my coupe. Acceleration is better than the 4dr and for the size of engine especially with Super in the tank. The interior design is the best part of the car. The car also handles very well on the highway and isn't bumpy The exterior design gets a lot of compliments. Haven't had one issue with this car. Oil changes every 5k miles

Always a Honda

With the exception of a "between cars car" I have always driven an Accord and the newest model is yet another example of why this is one of the top 3 selling cars in America. Design, quality, reliability - all top notch. Very smooth ride that will run forever at a price most families can afford.

We own an '02 Accord EX which we are very happy with. Still, I was surprised at just how much finer our new one is: it's peppier, the leather is nicer, the mileage is better, the interior is more luxurious, and the price is just about what we paid for the '02! This is a thinking person's car - it does what a car should do, reliably, and with comfort, practicality and economy. I rent a lot of mid-sized cars in my job and there is not a one of them that even comes close.

I couldn't believe I was driving a 4 cylinder car that gets 25 mpg in-town and 35+ mpg highway after hitting the gas pedal of our 2006 Honda Accord 4 Cylinder Special Edition. The acceleration is smooth and assured, rivaling that of many 6 cylinder engines I have tried. The areas to be aware of are that the Accord sits low to the ground, and compared to past Accords has a little more of a sporty feel to it. The compromise is that on rough roads and cracks, there is some jitteriness, but the performance won me over.

First Honda purchase with a 06 LX SE. Looked extensively at 07' Camry and decided on Honda primarily due to interior and cost. Driven for 1k miles so far and really like the car; however, ride comfort and road noise are less than acceptable and no comparison to Camry. I am quite shocked at the ride quality. Good value for the money, but would encourage Camry if the ride quality is important.

Without question, the best midsize car.

My experience with this car has been superb.The only other car that I looked at was the 07 Camry. The Accord just seems nicer. The ride and handling tradeoff is excellent. The iVtec four is super smooth and has plenty of power even with the auto. I love the LED tail lights and the new front end. The seats are very comfortable. I have to drive employees around town and everyone comments on how nice it is. I find myself driving it just to drive it.

Delighted with the mileage. We got 38 mpg on a trip to Atlanta. My wife loves the mileage and I love the performance. One car magazine reviewer said that the Hybrid was like a pouring a can of nitrous in the fuel; instant torque and acceleration. While it may not be as quick as our Acura TL-S - it feels like it is. Instant response, great mileage,and reliable what's not to love?

best performance 4 cylinder automatic ever driven. 5 speed transmission is so smooth you do not hear anything. I had a 98 6 cylinder accord because my 92 4 cylinder accord did not have the passing power. What a difference. If you want 0 to 60 in so many seconds, get the v6 but if you want to go approx 40 and than need to pass or pick up speed, it flies fast enough for me without any engine noise. Only a slight, really minor shake at idle when air conditioner is going. When it is off, their is no idle shake at all. Also, I think it manuevers better than the 98 model. No road noise or wind noise. Best in braking ever. Hyundai had problem in brakes. Felt like ABS were on but road was smooth.

I've driven Hondas for years, but this is my first brand new car. I was pretty sure I wanted the Accord, but I did drive other cars to be fair. This car is so comfortable, gets better mileage than the sticker says. Who needs extras when everything I could want just came with the car. I'm sure I will be as happy with this car in 15 years, when I still plan to be driving this car, as I am right now.

I average about 20,000 miles driving to and from work so we were looking for a reliable car. My past experience with vehicles hasn't been very good-lots of mechanical failures, expensive repairs. We did the research and were very impressed with the Honda Accord and sold after the test drive. Very smooth ride, lots of great features, and Honda has a great track record with their products. Can't go wrong investing with Honda!

I test drove the Ford 500, Altima & Camry and EX was by far the best. Smooth ride, quiet, good sound system (this could be improved), handles great, peppy for a 4-cyl. However, I am disappointed in the gas mileage so far but the car is really not broken in yet. Could have a few more bells and whistles like seat position memory, in- dash indicators of fuel and mileage. All in all, I LOVE THE CAR. Leather interior is soft and does not really hold the heat and here in Alabama, that is a consideration. Stop thinking, just buy one! Note to car manufacturers: please think of something to hold a woman's purse!

Fun to drive, the V6 makes a difference, and the 6 speed makes an even larger difference as far as control and pick up. I have had no problems with this car, but have only had it since November '05. Love it though! Gas mileage gets better and better as you drive it and I am not using premium gas, by the way. I feel this car handles very well, accelerates quickly and is really powerful!

Blinded by Honda reputation. Did not look as carfully as we should have. Seats are very hard. No lumbar adjustment. Brakes very touchy. Sheet metal is thin, almost dents by pushing on it. Paint quality not good (lots of orange peel). Not smooth, steering wheel and shifter vibrate at idle, worse when cold. Glass in windshield is poor quality, lots of distortion. It's an inexpensive car that will probably run great for a long time but it is clear that they needed to cut corners to keep the price down. In retrospect, something else would have been a better choice.

When we went to look at the Honda Accord Hybrid car, the salesperson did tell us that it is not a true hybrid, that the mileage is not what it states on the sticker. It has great pick-up when needed to accelerate. The dashboard lights are great! Highway ride is a bit rough and the interior noise is noticeable. On occasions we have experienced some blind spots while driving,warrenting a sudden correction . Do not like the spare-tire feature, very dumb. We feel good about driving a clean car but wish it could give us better mileage!

It is an outstanding car that I would recommend. It can seat five in comfort or works great for the solo commute. Gets out on the highway and it really can move! Road noise is minimal, stereo excellent, transmission is smooth, and driver seat is best I have had in a car.

I used to have to fill up my Chevy twice a week. I fill up once a week just out of choice. I only use half the tank a week. UNBELIEVEABLE. This is a great buy, especially for soon-to-be moms. I bought the honda because I read about how safe they were and how efficient they were. I would recommend this vehicle to everyone.

I traded a 2004 C230 Kompressor and I'm glad I did! The Benz was faster and had more electronics (in-dash diagnostic/trip computer with digital readout, and one-touch everything) but my EX-L coupe has all the comfort and a much better ride. The interior fit and construction is terrific, there's lots more driver leg room, and the seats are more comfortable than the Benz. My Honda coupe is every bit as nice as the Benz, inside and out, and cost $10,000.00 less!

I just purchased my Honda Accord EX-L 4CL with leather/moonroof and am so happy that I did. I was looking at spending extra for a certified pre-owned Volvo S60 or the Nissan Maxima. I just couldn't find any good deals, as the latter models were over priced and over hyped. When I test drove the Accord, I fell in love. The interior is that of a Lexus- quality. I couldn't believe it. So smooth and it's got a lot of pep for a 4CL engine. I just got rid of my gas guzzling Jeep Cherokee V6. So over these ridiculous gas prices! Used to have to fill my truck twice a week to get back forth to my job. I've cut that by just more than half (and it'll get better once it's broken in).

Just over 5000 miles and so far my Accord has been great without any rattles or issues. My average city mileage is 26 mpg, only been on one road trip and got 35 mpg. I expect both of those to climb a little with more miles. First oil change at 5000 with 30% left on maintenance minder. I will follow maintenance minder from now on and should get about 7000 between changes. Came from a Passat V6 manual 5spd and I am impressed with the 4 cylinder power. The Honda I-4 feels about like my VW did. Only minor complaint is the brakes. The initial bite is abrupt and they don’t have the stopping power of the Passat. The brake feel was much better on the VW too.

2006 EX-V6/AT We have a 2004 Accord and needed another car. Test-drove the new Camry, Acura TL, and IS350. All great cars,and honestly didn't want to have two of the same car, but there was really no comparison. The steering feel, performance, ergonomics and comfort of this vehicle can't be beat at this price point. The Camry is very quiet and has more rear seat room, but not nearly as fun to drive and lacks the same standard features. The 2006 is definitely more fun to drive, might be the drive-by-wire throttle but this Accord gives more steering response and the suspension is more sporty than the 2004 EX V6. Couldn't stop smiling driving it home from the dealership. No contest. Honda definitely improved steering feel and agility over 2004 model which was my main complaint back then.

This car strikes the perfect compromise (for me, at least) between sportiness and comfort. Handling is very good for this class, and the ride is smooth enough for long hours on the freeway (but, thankfully, not buicklike smooth :-). The combination of the quiet and powerfull V6 and the slick 6 speed stick shift make this car a joy to drive. The interior is very roomy front and back, and the build quality seems to be first rate.

This car replaced a '96 Sable LS and is an upgrade in every way. The car has about 1000 miles on it of which 600 are from one long trip which averaged 35.4 mpg. I love the acceleration and handling of the car and the seamlessness with which the various fuel saving features work. Auto-Stop and restart is flawless, VCM kicking the car into 3-cylinder mode is more obvious. Fuel economy is good although it is highly dependent on how the car is driven. I can easily get 36-37 mpg in moderate highway traffic and averaged 40 mpg on a 100 mile leg of a long trip. MPG on the short trip (5 mi) my wife takes to work is in the low 20's, which is to be expected since the engine barely has time to warm up.

Test drove them all and the decision was easy... the Accord is hands down the best value for your dollar. 4 cyl engine is smooth and surprisingly quick. If you like to drive, go for the manual tranny. The interior is fantastic! Leather comparable to pricey luxury models. Great fit and finish. Seats are very comfortable, all instruments and controls very nicely laid out. All this and great reliability and gas mileage to boot. Honda continues to be the pace setter when it comes to how much you get for your money.

This car simply has the best of both worlds while considering gas mileage. You slam it to the floor and you take off... its obviously not supercar but it is plenty of power for pulling out into traffic etc. Turning and cornering is impressive for a car of its size and designation. Great appearance!

Car runs great, no problems so far, very comfortable ride, Driver seat not as comfortable 93 SAAB, otherwise the ride is nice and smooth. Car is really roomy too. Nice power on the expressway and around the city. Gas mileage not too good during breakin period, hopefully it gets better, I have 200 miles on the car so far is on my second tank of gas, re-fueled at 200 miles/half tank. Bought new wheels, hub caps not for me. Nice car!

Darn good value overall!!

The engine is great. Interior and exterior styling is awesome! The perforated leather is soft and of good quality. Seats are extremely comfortable. The car rides very nice and smooth. The 17" wheels and lower profile tires on this years V6 6M look sweet. Smooth shifting is difficult sometimes as another person mentioned. In traffic the clutch can be quite demanding as it's especially springy; much more than your typical clutch. The brakes are not quite up to par with the performance. Handling could stand to improve a bit as it's a little cushy feeling on fast turns. Overall you'd be hard pressed to find a better value in this range. With a few tweaks, this car would be unbeatable!

Picked up my cool blue metallic ex v6 coupe a few days ago but am very pleased with the overall performance of this car. Color is beautiful with the soft black leather interior. Driving a stick shift for over 35 years and wanted an auto for a change. Still have my 00 civic si to drive if i want to drive a manual. Car feels bullet proof with a nice thud when closing the door. Overall very happy with the car and feel reliability should be very good.

Been in the market for a car since my lease on the 2003 BMW 530i was coming up. With the gas prices where it was heading, didn't really want to drop a bundle on a car nor pay for the premium gas at the pump. I've been very happy with the car for 3 years but felt it was time to be more practical. Looked at a Maxima, Avalon, Camry, and Accord. Finally decided on the Accord based on price, quality, reliability and practicality. I am so glad I went with the Accord. Saved about 3k with the comparably equipped 2007 Camry. I was concerned about going from a torquey German I6 to a Japanese four banger, but so far, I have been very happy with the car. I recommend this car to all in this segment. Nice

At first, I wanted to purchase a Civic because of gas prices but there was something about the Accord. From the exterior to the interior it's just beautiful! It's picks up like a V6 engine, smooth ride, great handling, and i love the color combination! I am a college student and travel a lot. I believe that the Accord will last longer than my Monte Carlo did. If you are looking for a car, this is the one to get. TRUST ME. Looks great, drives great, and the fuel is great. Great job Honda.

So far so good, but I bought the hype; and reality needs to be determined. I liked going the 5,000 miles between oil changes, I believe the mileage projection capability over promised what the car actually delivers. City driving about 24 MPH, On the highway, no Air conditioning, average speed control of 70 MPG, the mileage was 28 MPH. I expected much better

I have been a long time owner of Accords. When they went to a 6 cylinder I was right there. Getting my hybrid was a chore but I finally got one and overall I am very happy with it. However there are a couple of quirks. 1. when the car shuts down (foot on brake) and you then move foot off the brake, you feel as if the transmission is going (feel a clunk). 2. Where is the gas mileage savings... Its just a drop above the regular 6. All things considered.. next car might be the regular 6.

The car seems built for an average height person. Being 6' 6", I find it difficult to "fit" in a car. The center console seems low, the headrest too far down and the left door armrest is way too low. Considering I drove an Audi TT Quattro Roadster convertible for four years prior to buying this Accord, one would think I have tons of space and roominess now, but that is not the case. There was more leg room, seat room and arm room in the TT than the Accord. The Accord doesnt seem to handle well either, but that will take some getting used to, as it's not a sports car. A great feature with the Accord is it's reliability.

Love It

The Accord drives great. I don't think it's any better than the Acura. As it gets broke in more, it seems to get better and better. The V-6 is powerful but if you're not looking for performance, the 4 banger has plenty of power and better MPGs.

This car is great in some ways but can use improvement. The seats are a bit hard but comfortable. The leather is great. The ride is stiff. Handiling is great. The car is quiet and shifts into other gears smoothly with great pickup. I think the car should have been made a bit larger and the ride should be smoother.

For those who are looking for more features, the EX-L is a great car, a little pricey but excellent value.

The LX Special Edition had all of the features of the EX that we wanted (disc brakes, wheels, 6 disc CD w/wheel controls,etc) for several thousand less than an EX. The car is a big upgrade over our 01 civic EX. The 4 cylinder is the smoothest I have ever driven. Much smoother than the Toyota or the Nissan 2.5. I was afraid that the 2.4 wouldn't have the power to sufficiently move this big car around, but it has no problem. I am very pleased. I have put 4000 miles on this car in exactly 3 months and am averaging 26 city and 34 highway. Not bad for a car this size.

Smooth, powerfull, handles well, rides well, and is loaded with features. Similiar cars of this quality cost in excess of 30 grand. I must say, I am pleasantly surprised at how much fun it is to drive, and plan on keeping it a while. The 6 cylinder and 6 speed manual is the way to go. Feels like a true sports sedan. Dont take my word for it, go test drive one, you will be surprised.

My Accord is only 1,300 miles old, and I am consistently getting only 17 MPG when it claims to get 20 - 29. Is there something wrong here? I was expecting at least 22 MPG. I drive mostly short, city drives, but I still averaged only about 17 mpg on a tank of gas that included about 120 miles of highway driving at an average of 65 mph. Perhaps I will contact Honda to inquire. The driver's seat could be more cushy - it's a little stiff and thin feeling. Brakes are a tad grabby - wondering if that will subside over time. Other than those issues, I think it is a well made car and the drive is very sporty and solid.

Overall, this is an awesome car, although I have to agree with the other reviews saying that the shifting is temperamental and probably not the best for the stick beginner (me). That aside, the styling inside and out is fantastic. The judicious use of carbon fiber panels on the interior is just right. I also like the voice activation responds well to my commands. The visibility from the driver's seat is also great because the hood slopes in such a way that it's completely out of sight.

This is a wonderful vehicle with incredible pickup and cruise capability. I love the fact that the mileage averages about 30 mpg overall and the electric emission reducing hybrid system rocks! Fast, comfortable, and can rocket into highway traffic if required or you can "feather" the accelerator and watch the mpg climb. Final thought... I keep hearing this is not a good deal relative to mileage when compared to the Accord 4 cylinder. That may be so but the trade off for a great ride with great mileage makes this a top choice. Also, watch the resale value when gas hits $4.00+ per gallon!

This car is more than I expected it would be. The transition from gear to gear is exceptionally smooth, and the car seems to float along the road. It's quick too, I was doing over 90 on the interstate without even knowing it (but a state trooper knew it when he clocked me with his radar gun). Jerk. The car has endless features too, from the XM radio, to the Navigation computer, to multitudes of voice- activated commands, and the fact that the computer tells you when you need an oil change, tire rotation, etc. by keeping track of your driving, maintiaing the car is a breeze. Plus, I'm averaging over 30 miles per gallon on my way to work (which is not all highway). Sweet ride!

My experience got off to a rough start. On my drive home, the transmission popped out of first gear. Took it to the dealer and had to twist their arm to admit there was a problem - then had the car in the shop for 10 days so they could replace first gear. After a couple months the problem appears to be solved. That said, the transmission shifts like a dream. Why anyone drives automatics is truly a mystery to me. The interior is great and roomy, nav and xm are great - especially the xm. I do wish the car had beefier brakes and better (more sporty) tires. But I can always upgrade in the future. Gas mileage is about 25 in mixed driving and 32 hwy. Engine is powerful and smooth.

The ride is smooth, climate control is flawless, the radio produces rich sounds, the interior is as attractive and refined and as comfortable as cars costing $10K more.

I just bought my 1st Honda. My last car was an '02 Toyota Camry. I really liked that car and it was difficult for me to decide between the '07 camry and the '06 accord. I bought the accord due to it's exceptional interior, its quality, and the price I received. I very much enjoy the sunroof, the leather seats, the xm radio, and the interior in general. The only thing that I miss with the camry is the smooth ride. The Accord is quiet and smooth until you go over bumps, and it's more rougher than I'm used to. But, I think it will be easy to overlook that with all the other fine features of the Accord.

2006 EX-V6 Auto-5speed. This is my second Accord and 3rd Honda. The engine is very powerful and responsive. I'm currently averaging 25mpg in mixed driving and 28 on mostly highway. The interior is fairly quiet: the front seats offer lots of support and the rear seats have more than ample leg room for a 6+ footer. The Grade Logic transmission takes some getting used to during deceleration. No regrets in the purchase, though.

This is a nice and comfortable sedan that has undergone recent tweaks to the exterior, interior and the suspension. Honda continues to improve the Accord every year never letting a good thing rest on its laurels. The Navigation system is the best-of-breed. XM Radio is a nice complement. The new tires and suspension make this a more spirited drive than the 2007 Camry; although, horsepower is less than the new Camry. Honda needs to give this car a facelift. It is like dating the average girl next door rather than a supermodel. The mechanics are fantastic and fit and finish are superior to most vehicles. The exterior needs an overhaul to compliment the interior.

I've only owned the car for a couple of months. Power is plentiful and the V6 makes a wonderful sound above 3500 rpm. The car is eerily quiet at lower rpms, and it has taken me a while to get used to the lack of noise from the engine. The engine and transmission just ooze with smoothness. The suspension is wonderful. You feel every bump exactly once, no more. Certainly not sports-car tight, but neither is it all floaty like my parents' cars. A fantastic compromise between ride and handling. Combined with the six-speed manual, this is a driver's car in the guise of a "boring family sedan". It seats four comfortably and can outaccelerate both the 1986 IROC-Z Camaro and Mustang GT.

An incredible ride, outstanding fuel enonomy and great performance. Couldn't ask for more ! The Navi system and XM are true frosting on the cake, and with Honda's outstanding resale value I'm convinced this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I did my homework about other models and have no regrets whatsoever. No matter what the weather is (I'm in Great Lake Snow & Ice Country) I've always felt secure on the road with the traction, durability and power to drive in any condition. I just wish the American Auto Makers would take these outstanding features (which obviously American consumers are looking for and need) and implement them in cars whose names we've grown up with.

I bought this car for the safety, reliability, resale value, and fuel economy. After living with it for 6 months, I really dislike this car. The ride is noisy, bumpy and harsh all the time, the windows and dash are full or rattles, and the driver's seat is a miserable place to spend any time. Cloth upholstery is at the bottom of the class. The standard stereo has a cd changer but the sound is not good. The headlights put out a lot less light than I was expecting. Honda has a great reputation, but that appears to be all you are paying for on this car.

I love my new Honda!!

My previous Accord is 16 yrs old and going strong. Made purchasing a new one easy. I love the styling, especially improvements to the rear like LED tail lights and trunk mounted center brake light. The 5 spd is quick, shifting is smooth, and engine noise is surprisingly quiet. Road noise is still there. Sigh. I love the handling on this car! 33-34 mpg so far, which is why I have the 4 cyl manual. Leather seats are very nice but the navigation system is incredible. The lighted instrumentation makes me smile whenever I start this car up. Only downside is lack of headroom for my 6’4” frame... the price you pay for having the power moonroof.

I came back to Honda after owning luxury vehicles for years. This is a nice car that needs a serious face lift. Ride is smooth and handling is crisp. Resale is fantastic and the value is superior compared to the more expensive "luxury sedans" I currently own or just sold. Why pay thousands more for an Acura when the Accord is very similiar internally? I looked "cool" and spent a lot of money to do it these past few years. Now it is back to basics.

I was looking at the Altima3.5 v6 , Mazda 6 V6, Camry v6 SE. the Honda is just a better buy! The Honda is the only one that doesn't need Premium fuel. The Accord has a great revised rear end (love the LED) awesome wheels, great interior fit & finish, Tons of space. Fuel ecconomy is great for a V6 with 244HP. To sum it all up, the Honda is a great everyday car looks great drives fast has a very good 5 speed Auto tranny you get a lot of "zoom zoom" when you need it and all drama free. No doubt the best car you can get for the $$ period.

Like most consumers, I narrowed my new car purchase down to either a Camry or an Accord. After test driving both vehicles, the answer was clear-cut. The Accord is a better looking car inside and out and the few options that I do not have on my car are outweighed by the fact that side- curtain airbags were included, where Toyota wanted to charge extra for them. The vehicle has tight handling and responsive acceleration that I did not find in the Camry I test drove. Add in the courteous and professional service I got from the Honda dealer (that I did not get at the Toyota lot) and I bought the car before leaving the lot the same day I test drove it.

Overall Nice car. Have some annoying squeaks from the dashpot when cold. Some rattle from the right side also. Appears to be from the glove compartment. Good gas mileage. Quick heat. Nice stereo. Price has dropped since last year. You probably can buy them for at least 500 below the dealer invoice, around $19,400, maybe less.

Traded in my 2004 Civic EX Coupe for the 2006 Accord EX. This is the nicest car I have ever owned. I am a bit concerned about the current gas mileage because I commute ~110 mi/day in DC traffic but otherwise a wonderful vehicle. My family helped me choose the car so we bought a Sedan. I held out for the V-6, 6- speed manual transmission for some mid- life excitement. The price was $5k below sticker price and below dealer cost so this is definetly a good deal for us. The 6-speed MT takes some getting used to in reference to the 5- speed. Hard to locate middle gears sometimes. Handles well in varied weather and road conditions.

I spend six to eight hours per day in my car. I bought the Accord LX V6 because of the reliability ratings and fuel efficiency. Was I ever surprised at the performance! The V6 has plenty of zip, and responds well even at interstate speeds. The 17" wheels give it a very sporty appearance. The design is solid, and the ride comfortable. I strongly recommend the Accord! The performance, value, and features are the best on the market.

I just purchased this vehicle yesterday. So far I think it is great. It has unbelievable accelleration, a smooth ride, sharp looking exterior, and very comfortable interior. I am not sure about the EPA numbers for fuel economy, but I am sure that may have to do with aggressive driving. I recently drove a family member's BMW 5 series sedan, and I must say the Accord Hybrid feels very similar performance wise at far less of a cost.

This is my second Accord EX-V6 in less than 10 months. Of course, it was the first Accord's quality led me into getting the second one. Comparing the price I paid--around $400 more than my 05. I have to say this is a GOOD deal, VSA, 17" wheel, better retuned suspension/less road noise, new tail design... Am I totally happy with the new one? Not quite! The first day got it home, only one hour after driving it home (35 miles on highway), it dies, will not start. Temp is almost 80 degrees, not living at high altitude area, unknown reason... I was so frustrated that I need to call for tow truck at the first day of ownership! It was solved with "flooding" solution.

It may exude practical, but it does it so well for around 20K. Excellent room for my tall family and it has surprisingly great performance for a four cyl (HP and MPG). I don't cringe when offering the rear seat to a tall person. It has reasonably tight drivabilty and you can feel the road. Fit and trim all seem flawless. Though a couple more options/features might be nice I won't complain about it. Nice wheels and grippy brakes (I don't understand negative reviews in this area). The engine compartment is spacious and orderly. I really appreciate the end result of Honda's effort in building a well engineered car that I enjoy looking at and can afford to own.

being a toyota owner for many years (since 1980) it was going to be hard to put me behind the wheel of anything else. by late january i sort of desperately needed a vehicle, and with the knowledge of the 2007 camry coming out this spring i figured i would wait till then. when toyota finally released the car at the detroit auto show i was not impressed. i thought the current camry was somewhat "whale like"but the new model left me wanting more. so, i went down to my local honda dealer and looked at the accord se. made the purchase and have never been happier with a new car purchase. i now consider myself a honda guy and cant say enough about how this car pleases me.if you dont believe me get CR.

I just purchased the car a few weeks ago and have about 500 miles on it. I had to choose between the V6 model and the V4. My car 4 cylinder drives a lot more smoothly, like the sedan. I noticed that the gears switch a lot more smoothly than the 6 cylinder also. Lastly the steering is a lot looser. The 6 cylinder is def. drives like a sports car and includes the traction control. I'd highly recommend this car if you want to spend in the low 20's and want somethign that looks sporty but at the same time offers the interior luxury.

I've owned every style Accord since 1990, and this is yet another winner. I was about to purchase an Altima, but the Accord's torque and smooth acceleration hooked me in. The VP gives us the basics we need, and the interior design is decent. I wish they would just add the rear speakers...how much more did they save by not doing so?

This is not a regular car like the others you see on the road every day. Is it for you? Might not be. If you want a means of transportation, which will save you money in the long run, don’t buy this car, or probably you will be disappointed. There are probably better options to that end. If you want to have FUN while you drive, or you have a fascination for novelty and ingenuity or if you want to do your part as a non-selfish citizen who want to leave some breathable air to the grand-grand-children even though we’ll be dead then, then you might consider this car.

Wearing of seats and arm rests apparent after only 1500 miles! Honda will replace under warranty, others have reported same problem with new 2006 fabric. Beyond that car is a dream, smooth, powerful, refined, and perky. Roomy enough for 5 six foot tall adults with no complaints.

I've had the car for just less than 2 weeks so maybe I'm a bit premature for a truly accurate review. E.g. since I'm still breaking it in I really can't comment on the power/performance of the V6. Been taking it easy so far! But I will say that coming out of a 98Civic I am enjoying the extra punch. The reasons for wanting this car to begin with still ring true now that I own one: proven H reliability, conservative style with a bit of flair and a touch of luxury, a great mix of practicality and fun-to-drive. Not to mention the notch up on the sexy meter with the new 6M! On the negative side the brakes are a bit soft and the suspension/wheels a bit hard. You will feel the bumps.

I got the 2006 Accord EX V6. It's actually my second accord and i'm very impressed with it. My 1994 accord has 115,000 miles in it and still running. The 2006 accord is very comfortable and roomy to drive. I was disappointed to find out that the automatic starter is not a standard. I don't actually have a problem with the breaks, since it's still new, it is very sensitive. Otherwise the ride is very smooth, you can barely hear the engine when it's on.

I purchased four Hondas in the past five years and this Accord it is one of the best. I did a lot of research between the 06' Camry LE and the Honda Accord SE. The thing I never like about Toyota it is their interior design and the fact that you must pay extra for safety features like Curtains Air Bags (standar even in the Accord's cheapest model) Also, my wife calls the Camry an eldest peoples car (meaning the design it is not appealing to her) Also you will get more horse power and more torque. Excellent performance while driving. The Accord SE interior makes the Camry looks like an old Yugo. I got a bad back and the support on the seat is great.

Great Car

This is my first Honda and definitely not the last. I love the power of the V6 engine but the fuel economy suffers a bit (getting average 24MPG in city, got 27MPG on recent long highway trip). I love the spacious interior of this sedan. The leg room, adjustable seat, and telescopic steering wheel are a big plus for me since I am 6’ 2”. The radio display that comes with navigation system is great but I was surprised to find that the FM station (station ID, song title, etc.) information was not displayed. It’s one of those things that once you’ve had it; you miss when it is not available. I can live without it though. Overall very satisfied with the car.

Great deal for the $

This is my second Accord EX, first with the V6. it's about time they offered a 6 speed manual!!. Short shifter is great, but the shift knob just seems too small for me. Other than that, it's great. Good scceleratioon, though it doesn't feel anywhere close to 244hp. My 2000 Audi A6 2.7T (250 hp) blew the doors off of this thing, but the Honda handles 10 times better.

Had a 2004 LX and enjoyed it greatly.When I went to buy a new one in 2005 the price had gone up so much I bought a nice American car. Honda made a deal again this year, I am so glad to be back in a Honda. Fit, finish, handling & gas milage are unequalled in supposedly "comparable models."

This car is awesome! For starters, it offers much more than its competitor (the camry) for about the same price. Also, the interior is much more modern (similar to the acura's) the accord handles the road like a higher priced sedan. The comfortable sport seats give you the support you need. My one hour commute seems more like a 20 minute drive. The car stereo sounds great and actually makes you "feel the music" quality is all over this car (too much to mention here). If you are in the market for a midsize sedan, then look no further, the accord is the one-you won't be dissapointed. You can thank me later for sharing these thoughts. By the way, get an online price quote and save big time!

I own a 1990 Honda Accord (that's 16 years) and have 180,000+ miles on it, also purchased at Manchester. Upgrading to a 2006 was the best decision I could have made. The exterior and interior are great, the safety features (including the steel beams in the doors and the all around air bags) were all I needed to make my decision. I traded in a Olds Intrigue which was the last American car I will own.

Very pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the 4 cyl. Lots of room in seating area and trunk. Comfortable driving position with telescopic adj steering wheel. Attractive white on black instrument cluster. Good sound system. Traded in a G35 Sedan for improved gas mileage. Ride not as smooth as the Infiniti, and handling not quite as steady, but not bad.

What an amazing auto! The V6 doesn't hold back, and the 6-speed manual transmission is so much fun! Gas mileage is exceptional for such a poweful car, and Vehicle Stability Assist really helps when taking those corners a little faster than you probably should. The Nav system adds a lot more fun, and is amazingly accurate and helpful. Forget BMW, Honda's got this one!

Get the best !

We did extensive research (and test drives) prior to buying our Accord EX. Moving from a F-150 Supercrew (3 of them over last 8 years) to a car is a big adjustment. Given the prospect of $3/gl gas again this is a no brainer and we knew we had to do something. This is our 2nd Accord and we forgot how much fun they are! The 4cyl engine is extremely peppy and the cabin is super quiet. Ergonomics are great and the build quality is very nice. If you're looking for a mid-size sedan the Accord should definitely be on your short list. Yes, everyone has one... but ask yourself why. Just look at the reviews and you'll know. BTW, would recommend Milan V-6 as a strong 2nd choice!

Still a nice car which honda cars are famous for that's why I opted for this car. Unfortunately I have some quality built issues with my car like rattling noises coming from the trunk, clicking noises coming from the left rear passenger compartment probably which houses the side curtain head airbag. The glove compartment doesn't align properly, Gaps on the exterior panel, Steering overcrowning on the road. Kinda dissapointed with these for a brand new Honda Accord. Will take to the dealer and I'll see how the service department performs customer service.

I love how much fun this car is to drive, even with an automatic...everything in its driving reflexes feels "spring-loaded". It has very accurate, crisp steering, and the perfect balance (for me, anyway) between handling and comfort on the highway. I drive in bumpy rush hour traffic every morning and it makes the drive so much more enjoyable. You really can't go wrong with this car, it does everything well. I get 36-37 mpgs on highway trips at 75 MPH, and never have a problem passing a dangerous dump truck, just hit the pedal and it takes off! Honda has another hit on their hands with the Accord.

First off, through Mercury insurance the SE is cheaper than an EX and an LX. Don't know why or how but it is! For 1500-2000 more we could have purchased the EX, but for better rims and a moonroof it wasn't worth it. We went from a 2004 Civic to this, and must say that its the best decision ever. Love the new body style, especially the upgraded rear tail-lights. The Graphite Pearl color is flawless as well.

Had an 06 Accord Hybrid on order but decided to cancel when it kept being delayed with no information from Honda. Really glad that I got the V6 6-speed instead! Mileage: 2622 miles driven at last fill-up (odometer, not navi miles); 93.502 gallons of regular=28.04 mpg average. Lowest 24.7 mpg on first tank. Highest 30.1 mpg. Mixed highway/city; no trips so far. Consistent 30+ mileage possible by avoiding full-throttle starts and limiting freeway speeds to 80 mph. I generally drive for mileage & let off the gas as soon as I see a light turn red. 6-speed is great. I like the shifter as well or better than my 04 S2000 (now sold). Combination of handling, ride & performance is perfect for me.

The Accord is stable and agile, but not overly sporty. The five speed shifts smoothly and linked with the four cylinder gets me to and above speed fast enough. I have so many favorite features (see below) that ownership has been wonderful. The controls and interior look great and work with high quality precision. This car has satisfied my hot buttons - quality, value, safety, economy, performance, and space.

I bought this car in Carbon Bronze on Jan 27 and I simply LOVE IT!! I own a civic and this Accord felt like I was getting re-acquainted with an old friend that can talk back. The voice activated features really help sell the car. The buttons are all in easy reach and everything is simple to use. The ride quality is excellent and the Michelin tires do not disappoint in the rain. The navigation is very good. I have gotten very comfortable with my heated seats and XM satellite radio as well. The leather is firm and supportive and the climate control makes sure you're always feeling nice and cozy inside. I also like the variable wiper speed that adjusts to the speed of the vehicle..really cool.

Excellent Value!!

I've only had it for a few weeks, but I am very impressed with it. I am rating reliability and fuel economy of 9 only based on Honda's reputation. I haven't gotten to really test the fuel economy. Sure it won't perform like a sports car, but compared to it's main competitor, the 06 camry, it blows it away in terms of style, standard features, and performance/handling. This is definitely a lot more fun to drive than the camry. The engine is quiet and the cabin is well insulated for noise. Build quality is superb, the controls feel very solid and the doors make a very satisfying whack when you close them. :) The seats are comfortable and provide solid support. I paid 18,926! Excellent value!!!

In 2000, I bought a new Acura TL. In 2003, I bought a new Acura CL Type S. After 5 transmissions, I bought an '06 Accord. It was a very wise decision. The Honda quality is legend, and in my case, it has lived up to it's acclaim. The 2.4 engine is surprisingly quick and responsive. Handling is superb. Dollar for dollar is a "best buy" as far as I'm concerned. I wanted something that was reliable, and the Honda line is known for reliablility. I went from an average 14 mpg of hi-test in the Acura to an average of 22 mpg of regular with the Accord, and as I said the 100 missing horses is not apparent. A great quiet ride and a comfortable interior with plenty of room. You can't go wrong. Buy it!

Always heard honda, toyota etc... were suppose to be so much better than chevy, ford, dodge etc... I must say I don't really find that to be true. The V-6 Accord is a nice car, don't get me wrong, however I don't find it to be SO much better than the chevy's or pontiac's I have had. Thanks but no thanks, next time i'll save a few thousand and buy another Chevy.

I must say, this car has more than lived up to expectations. It is far more refined than others in it's class, and it's so nice having the performance, luxury, and affordability all in one car. My V6 is getting 27 mpg on average. The heated seats and mirrors are wonderful, and the dash layout is very effective, along with the steering wheel audio controls. The brakes really are a bit softer than I like, but the rest of the performance makes up for it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of luxury with performance, and practicality, at a price others would pay 6k more for. This Accord is the best yet.

Changing from a Durango to Honda Accord has been quite emotional & I'm still grieving but gas mileage is more important. New owner for 3 weeks; handling is okay but doesn't take bumps well. Going in for service b/c have recently noticed front glass appears to have come unglued?? - squeaking noise full length of glass next to hood when you go over bumps. If you like your music, make sure it gives the power you want. For me, depending on what you're listening to, sound doesn't go up high enough.

Traded my 03 Chevy Silverado ext cab for the Accord SE, was originally looking at a new Civic, but too small in back for 3 kids. This car rocks! My wife has an 04 Accord LX and she wishes the SE would have been offered then. You are basically getting an EX for much cheaper (minus the moonroof and nav). It has 4 wheel disc brakes, fancy cloth and carbon fiber trim, etc. The stick shift makes it feel like a small race car. The changes to the exterior make the car more sporty. The changes to the interior add luxury, but not much bells and whistles like on other cars in this price range. It is an awesome car - it's a Honda! Reliability, gas mileage, safety, and handling are reminders.

Every since the last re-design of the Accord I have been lukewarm about tail of the Accord - maybe silly, but I did not like it. For 2006, Honda improved the looks, but also improved the engine (4-cyl). After test driving, I was convinced I wanted this car. I purchased mine less than 3 weeks after the release of the 2006 (I never purchased a new design - even mid-cycle). I am impressed with the quickness and control of the 2006 Accord. Honda has made improvements in cabin quiteness (over previous generations) and I am very happy with my purchase.
