Honda said they fixed it but didn't. With styling and performance that splits the difference between the sportier Nissan Altima and softer Toyota Camry, the Honda Accord embodies the very balance that attracts so many buyers to the midsize sedan segment in the first place. A bolder front end, deeper side sculpting and more pronounced fender flares give the all-new 2008 Honda Accord Sedan a crisper, more substantial look. The stability control also acts as a limited slipsystem, braking a spinning wheel during acceleration to transfer thetorque to the other wheel. Should have lasted 60000 + miles. Other cars might feature nicer interiors or offer better performance, but the award-winning Accord is one of the best all-around packages in this class.

Honda has balanced the Accord handling very well. They stop on a dime, perfect for the student parking lot at my school where other people drive their cars like they're drag racing. These engines start going bad some where north of 120,000 miles or so. Comfortable leather interior, loaded and sunroof. One of the cylinders is prone to misfire caused by this feature and eventually caused more oil consumption because of damaged rings. I complained about oil consumption for years which Honda said was normal.
We wound up buying a vehicle from a company where there is mutual trust between the sales people and customers. The Accord defines what Americans want in their midsize vehicle: reliability, comfort, performance, and affordability. The sound system is amazing and the auxilary jack is perfect to to play my iPhone out loud. Other cars might feature nicer interiors or offer better performance, but the award-winning Accord is one of the best all-around packages in this class. Decided to leave it on. Along with the styling changes came size changes: Everything on the 2008 Accord got bigger.
Notwithstanding the center stack's sea of buttons and the questionable styling, quality and performance complaints were non-existent. The combination of pleasant driving, practicality and refinement probably is unmatched among mainstream sedans. It can actually be hot on one side and cold on the other. The 268 horsepower make their presence known when the driver asks for them. The dash may appearoverwhelming at first, as there appears to be a million buttons in thecentre stack, but once you become familiar with it, they are verysimple to use. When i am on the speaker phone - i have to yell just so I'm heard.
While the Honda Accord-versus- Toyota Camry debate hasn't sparked nearly as many family feuds or bar-room brawls as Ford vs. Everyone liked the steering feel, comfort, build materials, and ride quality. Rounding out a theme, braking feel, response and feedback are also top-notch. The 2008 Accord was also honored as 's Best Family Sedan, Consumer Reports' Best Pick of 2008 in the Family Sedan category, and 's Sedan of the Year and International Car of the Year. Rear seat headroom is also tight.
Finally dealer identified as a leaking strut. While driving down the road, the locking mechanism would cycle about every 10 seconds to try and lock the doors. The bottom line then is that the salesperson and customer do not trust each other. Our primary problem is that Pipes does not trust their customers because they will deal in cash or debit cards only; no personal checks are accepted for items that cost several thousand dollars. Excellent Throttle Response Even though throttle response isn't exactly a feature, the Accord responds so naturally to the driver's gas pedal inputs that we're compelled to note it here. Went to dealer to do a test and no problem was found. Brakes squeal intermittently; mechanics try to fix with no success.
This car also accelerates rapidly, without sucking gas. Was a bit expensive to repair. If unlocked while driving, system kept clicking loudly trying to auto-lock them. This allowed oil into the combustion chamber and oil fouling the sparkplug. The body is 38 mm wider andthe rear seat floor is flat. TheV6 engine comes in two versions based on transmission choice.
Arecessed grille, large air intake below the grille and flush mountedprojector beam headlamps add real character to this car. They start using oil to the tune of a quart every 1000 miles, cam shafts go bad, rings need replacing. Honda dealer was very slow in fixing the problem. By now, you've no doubt heard of Cash for Clunkers, informally known as the U. Dealer says that this is normal.
