2006 Honda Accord

Model Overview

Unlike many automakers that launch a new car and leave it to molder for nearly a decade, Honda prefers to keep its vehicles fresh and competitive. So even though the previous 1998-to-2002 Honda Accord was quite fine by any measure, Honda made substantial changes in 2003 to create the seventh-generation Accord model.

Two advanced engines were made available: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and an extensively revised 3.0-liter V6. Both gained more peak power and torque than their predecessors, as well as improved midrange performance, lower emissions and improved fuel economy. For underpinnings, Honda decided to stick with the previous-generation Accord's double-wishbone suspension front and rear. Modifications in front amounted to revised geometry to suppress body movements during cornering, braking and acceleration. In back, similar changes were employed, along with increased rear subframe stiffness. The result was a tighter ride with less thump and thrum from the underpinnings.

Inside, the 2006 Honda Accord is furnished with attractive, high-quality materials assembled to exacting standards. The stylish cockpit is almost flawless when it comes to ergonomics, and the seats are carefully designed to provide a middle-of-the-road compromise of cushioning and support. In back, the Honda Accord ties with the Camry for best-in-class rear-seat accommodations, and the seat design is such that just about any child's car seat can be installed with minimal hassle. Large cupholders, thoughtfully designed storage areas and a surprisingly good sound system round out the Accord's family-friendly package.

For 2005, Honda introduced the Accord Hybrid, which features the company's third-generation IMA electric assist system matched with a gasoline V6 power plant, making it the most powerful and elite Accord in the lineup. The hybrid works by capturing electrical energy during braking or deceleration and using that energy to help power the vehicle. In addition, the system features the ability to shut off the engine during vehicle stops for further efficiency gains. Combined peak output for the hybrid powertrain is 253 hp, and the EPA gives the Accord Hybrid a fuel economy rating of 25 city/34 highway. This is a good rating for a V6, but it's about the same mileage as a four-cylinder Accord gets. The Hybrid's V6 engine also features a Variable Cylinder Management system (VCM) that can deactivate three of the engine's six cylinders during cruising and deceleration with no impact to vehicle performance or passenger comfort.

Overall, you won't find a more balanced package in the family sedan segment. With its inviting interior, amicable on-road demeanor and exemplary build and materials quality, the 2006 Honda Accord is an easy car to like. Add in Honda's reputation for exceptional reliability and high resale value, and you can't lose. If you're shopping for a practical midsize sedan or coupe this year, make sure the Honda Accord is on your short list.

Honda Accord Consumer Reviews By Year:
2006 Honda Accord

NEW FOR 2006

The 2006 Honda Accord receives freshened interior and exterior styling and mechanical- and feature-related updates. Sharp eyes will notice the Accord's revised fascias and new alloy wheel designs. Minor engine tweaks, including drive-by-wire throttle control, result in a slight bump in horsepower for both the four-cylinder and V6 engine (a more significant development than you might think given the more stringent SAE testing procedures in effect this year). Additionally, the V6 sedan can now be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, and all V6 models have revised suspension settings, 17-inch alloy wheels and stability control. Last year's DX has been replaced by the VP (Value Package) trim with standard air conditioning and cruise control, and LX V6 and Hybrid models gain a moonroof. The LX Special Edition includes alloy wheels, rear disc brakes and a CD changer. The Accord Hybrid also picks up stability control and a temporary spare tire in place of last year's flat-fix kit. Additionally, the Hybrid model's fuel economy rating drops from 29 city/37 highway to 25/34. Finally, all models get a smart maintenance system and daytime running lamps.

PRO

Roomy and stylish interior with simple controls, tight build quality, smooth ride, refined drivetrains, good crash test scores, strong reputation for reliability, high resale value.

CON

Tepid handling, brakes should be more powerful. Hybrid model offers no advantage in fuel economy over four-cylinder.

The new 06' model is simply slick and look much more dynamic than the last model.

By C.M. on April 22 @ 5:10 am
Pleasantly Surprised
Pros: The 4-cylinder engine has quicker response and more pick-up than I expected (and way more than the Nissan Altima 2.5). The interior is nice, not cheap (again unlike the Nissan Altima) and very comfortable both for me (at 5' and for my husband at 6'4"). The ride is quiet, smooth, and hugs the road. We were in the market for a fuel- efficient mid-size car and looked at the Altima and the Toyota Camry (our other car is a Toyota 4-Runner). Honda was our last stop because we weren't really interested in owning a Honda (everyone has one...), but one test drive changed our minds and we are pleasantly surprised everytime we drive somewhere!

2 weeks of pleasure
Minor updates for this mid-cycle change. I've had the car only 2 weeks, and just filled-up for the second time this morning. 31.5mpg in 70%hwy, 30%city driving. I can take or leave the XM radio, but the maintenance minder is a nice feature. The new wheels are difficult to clean (space between spokes too small).

By Dave Furman on April 22 @ 10:16 am
Your Best Choice!
The car is the best value for under $30,000. It's fast, and handles great! Quiet interior. Lots of soft touch everywhere. Leather seats are comfortable and made with soft high quality leather. Standard sound system with built in XM doesn't drop signal anywhere and sounds great. Holds its value for years and is one of the most reliable cars ever made. Get yours too and don't skimp, Get the EX V-6.

By OLIVIA on November 25 @ 6:40 pm
My Accord
I love this car! It drives like a champ. The engine is so quiet that when I start the car, I second guess if it's on. It drives so nice and smooth. You really don't feel any bumps or pot holes. I love the sound system! It rocks! Installing XM radio was a wonderful idea! I love the look of the dash board and how every button is within reach. The buttons on the steering wheel was a great ideat. Over all I rate this car a 10! The price was more than I wanted to spend but I know I will have this car for many years! Honda is a trustworthy brand.

By jeffincolo on April 4 @ 3:50 am
Great car
I just finished my first tank of gas in this car. It lasted 2.5 weeks and I got just over 30mpg with mixed driving. This car has nice power and drives smooth as silk at all speeds up to 85 (fastest I have driven it to date). The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and evenly during acceleration. The engine purs at 2500RPM at 75mph. The graphite pearl looks great on the vehicle. Also the LED tail lights look great. Interior is roomy and looks nice. Especially like the conveniant CD compartment under the radio. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for fuel economy as well as nice performance (handling and power).

By Rob Mack on August 27 @ 4:33 am
Phenomenal Vehicle!
I absolutely love my Accord EX-L. I traded in a Chevy Blazer for this car and I'm glad I did! The Accord handles so incredibly well and is appointed in such a fashion to make you think you are driving a luxury vehicle. I went with the leather model to give it that extra touch of class, and it does it quite well. Everything inside the vehicle makes driving it so incredibly fun. I find myself just taking it out for a quick spin on the open road. It's hard to believe it's a family sedan.

By Steve on September 15 @ 7:23 pm
Excellent Value
We purchased our 2006 Honda Accord LX SE 5 speed after driving and comparing it to comparably equipped Chevrolet Malibu, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Mazda 6. We found that the Accord compares most favorably overall when compared to the competion. Its ride, handling and performance of the I-VTEC 4cyl is tough to beat, its a very comfortable good handling quiet, fun to drive sedan. Our experience with Honda's has been very positive, our 98 Accord which we still own, has over 90,000 miles and has its original clutch, rear tires and front and rear brake pads. No problems whatsover and it returns around 30mpg in mostly in town driving, we think this 06 model will do even better.

By PaulBNKY on April 8 @ 1:43 pm
Just bought 2006 Honda Accord EX V6
This car is fantastic! It is sporty, classy and dare I say practical. Got the hard to find Carbon Bronze Pearl with the Ivory interior. The car has first rate build quality and is stunning to look at in the daylight. Got my car for 27,000+ tax title and insurance. I would highly recommend it.

By Steve on June 27 @ 12:40 am
06 Accord Rocks
A lot of car for the money. Great safety systems including standard side curtain air bags. Huge Trunk. Timeless design.

By MTC on October 8 @ 4:36 pm
All around great car
This is a great care and now that we have a baby, I am actually considering upgrading to the V6 4 Dr. Great power, handling and reliability. Honda has again done a great job.

By Steve1 on June 19 @ 10:53 am
A little bit more..
The 06 is just a little bit more of everything. A bit more powerful, a bit more quiet, a bit more sophisticated, a bit more styled, etc. I traded an 03 and the 06 is just a bit more refined.

By Ralph on August 29 @ 3:43 am
I Love This Car!
I just purchased my Honda Accord Ex, and it was love at first test drive. I recently had a Nissan Altima, and this is so much more comfortable. The ride is so smooth, and it's hard to believe that a 4 cyl engine is under the hood. It is so responsive. I really love the dashboard layout, as all the instruments are so convenient. The controls on the wheel are really nice. This is a lot of car for the dollar. It is the best deal out there. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quality car, at an affordable price.

By jabra on July 27 @ 12:53 am
My Favorite Accord
I just traded in my 2004 CRV to get the new 2006 Accord LX. I have never loved a car like this one. It is a sheer pleasure to drive, the quality of the fit and finish is so great. I have been averaging around 26 mpg in the city with the air on in Las Vegas. I really love the new design of the back of the car. The car rides so quiet and it handles like a sports car. This is my second Accord and this is hands down the most fun to drive, even with the 4 cylinder. The instrumentation is clean and beautifully lit. This is the first car I have ever bought where there is absolutely no buyer remorse on any level.

By stoutrb on November 27 @ 9:50 pm
Worth The Wait
This car is incredible! The first time Honda has produced a six speed in a four door, what a pleasure to drive. Its quick, responsive, fun to drive, no comparison to anything remotely close in price range. I ordered a Carbon Bronze with Ivory interior, this car looks sharp. The close ratio six speed, what a trill to drive. Its like driving an S2000 with four doors! The clutch is alot easier than the previous coupe 6 speed manual transmission, not as touchy, much much smoother. My first tank of gas, I averaged 23.6 mpg, combination city and highway 50/50.

By tullj on February 21 @ 8:56 am
CRV to Accord transition
I'm very happy with my new Accord. Of course the oveall quality is first rate, as I expected after owning 2 CRVs for years. The first thing I did a few days after getting the new Accord was to take off on a 4000 mile road trip of seven western states inclding 9 national parks and monuments. I drove from sea level in Seattle up to 12,200 feet on trail ridge road Colorado, to the desert southwest, and then up the pacific coast, in all types of weather and temperature conditions. I drove on long flat interstates at 80 mph and up and down steep mountains at lower speeds. I used all features of the car. it performed flawlessly. I averaged 36.7 mpg overall. I highly recommend this car.

By Borg on July 14 @ 10:13 pm
Superb for the Money!
This is our 3rd Honda Accord we've owned. Our last, a 2005 Honda Accord EX-L V6 where we were T-Boned by a drunk driver going 50 mph protected our family very well. We were very impressed with how well the car protected us. Accident safety aside, this is a superb car for the money. We got the EX V6 with leather, no navigation and were very impressed with the ride, amenities, performance, and fuel economy. Our friends have an Acura TL-though a wonderful automobile, offers similar sound deadening as our Accord. We didn't need HID lamps, or other "creature" comforts. So if you're looking for a safe, well built, comfortable car, check out the Honda Accord!

By Larry Y. on May 1 @ 11:33 pm
Imagine More 4 Less
That's right! Honda has done it time and time again, we recevied more for less for our dollars. This is our third Honda. 1st two were Civics, and this time my wife wanted an upgrade so we considered and purchased the Accord EX-L. Considered Acura, Toyota, Volvo, but glad we stayed with Honda. Unbelievable power, response, and smoothness from the 2.4L 4 cyl. due in part to the technological advancements like the "Drive by Wire" throttle control. This is the same engine that's in the Acura TSX de-tuned but for $5-6K less. Feels like a little V- 6. Great gas mileage and handling. Love the leather. Yes, we did receive more for less!

By Rajan on January 23 @ 3:53 am
2006 Accord EX V-6 6-Speed
The 6-Speed is awesome plus there hardly any on the road that are like this. Gives people a shock when they find out its a 6-Speed.

By zoomer on May 9 @ 4:26 pm
Drive this car
Great car except for road noise coming up through floor. The Acura TL has the same problem. Oh well, you can't have everything. Car is very smooth. Transmission is good but there is a gate to push through to get it over to 5th and 6th and another for reverse. One for reverse is all that is necessary for most drivers. Sound system is very good. Rear seat room is great.

By Van Sinclair on July 6 @ 5:06 pm
No brainer......it's a Honda
Tried to decide between this Honda and a Mazda 6. I made the right decision. The build quality is far superior over the Mazda. Gas mileage is great and the 160 hp motor does fine in traffic and on the highway. Don't make a mistake and buy something else.

By zuffy on September 11 @ 12:30 am
Awesome new car
I bought the 2006 Accord EX-L with navi to replace my stolen '95 Accord EX. I can't believe how much technology have grown since my last car. The car is extremely fun to drive. Handles well, performance is great for a 4 cylinders, all the buttons are easily accessible. The moonroof is very slow to open/close though. I can open & close my moonroof in my 95 Accord approx. 3-4 times before the 06 completely opened or closed.

By JKM127 on June 10 @ 7:33 am
Love My Honda's
This is my 6th Accord, and they keep getting better, but less imaginative and lately always seem behind the curve. Wish Honda could do more about the road noise, the car could use some soundproofing; The gear shifter could be sleeker, sexier not sticking up so high; Offer better and more extior colors mixup the exterior and interior colors, would like to have gotten the satin silver with tan intior; do not like the painted bumper they scratch up to easily; and do love the realiability and quality.

By Loyal Honda Owner on October 4 @ 9:03 am
Repeat Accord Owner
I am very pleased with my Accord, Nothing but the best in workmanship and quality. The four banger (2006) is amazingly fast, hard to believe it is a four cylinder; very quick acceleration. This is my second accord traded 2001 vp,the best decision so far. The standard features are great!!! DRL's (Daytime Running Lamps), LED brake Lamps, Heated seats and mirrors, 8 air bags, 4 disc brakes, 6-CD changer stereo,Alarm, Best crash test results in class, and most of all best quality, reliability, and luxury for a honda. First day took a 500 mile trip (Round Trip) and it drove great...Test drove both cars 4- cyclinder and V6, both were great decided on the four because of the quick acceleration.Get 1

V-6 6 SPD w/Nav stands alone
The V-6 6-Speed Coupe with Navigation stands alone in the Accords in terms of performance, appearance, and fun. You will love rowing the gears in this car as it zips from 0-60 in a slim 5.9 seconds. Stange price range though. For the same price you can get into a number of "luxury"-brand cars but with far less features (such as the voice activated nav). It is also competing with cars like the Nissan Altima 3.5. The Altima, however, does not offer a V6 6-Speed with Nav. They offer a V6 with Nav. They offer a V6 with a 6- Speed. But they do not offer a V6 6- Speed with Nav. How silly is that? The Accord also blows the Nissan away in terms of build quality.

By tygger on July 30 @ 3:53 pm
Honda...still the best
I've always owned Accords or Civics, and just traded my Civic for the 06 Accord. We looked at the 2006 Civic, but the interior is...well, weird. The 2006 Accord is MUCH nicer and roomier, and the cost is very comparable once you add all the goodies. Absolutely no complaints..we drive a lot and love the new Accord. But one side note: be sure you CAREFULLY check the interior doors. Somehow the factory installed gray interior on the drivers side, and black on the passengers side, and we didn't notice for a week. No big deal, and Honda is making it right with no hassle. The Accord is definitely much nicer than the Civic and worth the extra money.

By GoCards on August 26 @ 8:26 am
We are now a Honda Family
We ended up purchasing the 2006 Accord after comparing it to the Mazda6, Camry, Jetta, and Altima. After looking at the build quality and enjoyment of driving, we narrowed it down to the 6 and the Accord. Since we already own a 2003 Honda Pilot, we know the quality of the Pilot. I was concerned about some of the 6 quality and didn't like the painted accents. So far, I do not regret it one bit. Who knew a 4 cyl. could have this much pickup and to go from a Pilot and a Jeep Cherokee, 30mpg has been a very welcome surprise.

By Jammit on October 3 @ 8:16 am
My First Honda
I bought this car to replace my 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4x4.I was looking for a vehicle which was more economical but still comfortable to drive for a tall person (6'4"), and fun to drive. After extensive research my final choices were, the 06' Buick LaCross,'06 Toyota Camry,06'Nissan Altima 2.5, 06' Chevy Impala and the 06'Honda Accord. I chose the Accord. This car is, in my opinion, the best overall. It's very comfortable, safe, quiet, looks beautiful from all angles, performs like a sports car but has the comfort of a luxury car, and to top it off, it is excellent on gas!! The build quality is superb, has very stylish body lines, and the six speaker sound system sounds awesome! Very Nice!

By bugsy123 on September 23 @ 9:56 am
I can't belive this is a Honda
When I decided to purchase a new car, there were many models and makes that I had in mind. I testes the Acura TSX and the Acura TL as well as the Nissan Maxima and Altima. The last car that I tested was the 2006 Accord EX V6. My initial impressions were that it ahd the fell of a luxury car and the personality of a sports car. It handles well and has more than enough power to satisfy the side of you that wants to get up and go full throttle. In my opinion and after extensive research, the accord is a steal for the price and should be at the very least test driven by anyone looking for a well balanced, medium-priced car with a reputation for rock solid reliability.

Honda keeps up the good work
My new wife informed me that my 2003 Honda Civic Coupe EX wasn't exactly a good family car and that we needed to look for a sedan. I did a lot of research and ended up wanting to stick with Honda. I was impressed with the 2006 Civic Sedan but my wife talked me into trying out the Accord. We weren't even a mile out from the dealership during our test drive of the 2006 Accord LX Special Edition when we decided that it was the car for us. I loved my Civic but comparing the Civic to the Accord is like apples to oranges. The entire car is just a step up. The comfort and ride of the Accord is phenominal. The build quality is great. The 4 cylinder engine performs beautifully. We love it.

By Stacie Fussell on July 14 @ 6:20 pm
Great Car
Good car for the money. You get a great name for less bucks! Great gas mileage in the age of HIGH gas prices.

By JIM on December 28 @ 4:40 am
Great Great Great
This is truly "the" automobile. If there is anything negative to say, it would be that the back seats have no leg room. I am taller and need my seat back which eliminates legroom in the back. I don't need back seat so this is basically a 2 seater for me. I love this vehicle! I am never in a hurry to get anywhere anymore. In fact when I get there I wish I still had some more miles to cruise.

By zebar on June 14 @ 8:13 am
Great gas mileage
The Honda 4 cylinder LX with automatic transmission gets great gas mileage. I just logged a 400 mile trip and average 34.2 mpg at 75-80 mph speeds throughout the trip. It is one of the few cars that actually gets the EPA mileage rating (34 mpg highway). I believe I would have achieved 37 mpg @ 70 mph speeds. The car handles like a BMW, has good road feel, and precise steering. Great Car!!!

By Cabinbldr on July 2 @ 9:43 am
Great first Honda
Both of my daughters own Accords and told me I could not go wrong. They were right. Traded an 05 Camry (was not happy with the way it drove) and am very glad I made the change. I really enjoy driving the Honda. The ride is great, it is rock solid on the highway at high speed, comfortable and much better looking than the Camry. Upgrades to the LX-V6 for 2006 are great - sunroof and 17" alloy wheels. New styling is also a big improvement on a previously good looking car.

By Mike on July 21 @ 9:30 pm
Awesome
Boy am I glad I bought this car instead of a V8 Truck with the rising gas prices. I intially started with 29mpg in my first tank. Now that it has broken in a little at 13000 miles I am always over 32mpg with my highest being 35 (600 miles on one tank). I don't baby the car either. I drive a constant 80 mph on the highway yet still mantain this mileage. It's comfortable, quiet, and roomy. I can't wait to see how it is in the snow. My last car was an 88 accord with 270,000 miles on it. It was excellent in the snow.

By Barbara on January 30 @ 9:20 pm
Love our new Sedan
My tall husband actually can be comfortable in the passenger seat of this great sedan when I am driving. Plenty of room in this car. Everyone who has seen it loves the 'luxury look." We love the good mileage we are getting around town.

By Diehard on December 25 @ 8:56 am
The real deal
With a bit of reluctance I decided to test drive the 6 speed Accord. What a car!!! This is a fast car and fun to drive. The gear box is as soft as butter and the interior is impeccably finished. No bells and whistles. The XM radio is a must and the sound system that comes with the 6MT is fantastic. Only the 6MT has 180w. The leather seat are very comfortable and the rear seat have plenty of room. Handling is superb and the redesign tail light looks great.

By Austin McCown on October 4 @ 10:00 am
Five New Accords and Still Buying
This is really a great little car. It is extremely dependable. This is not my first Accord. If it proves to be, as it has so far, having the dependability of its older brothers, it will be unbeatable. It is a blast to drive, handling like one of the cars in the 40-50K price range. I do wish they would improve on the quality of the leather. It just isn't durable. Cheap leather coupled with cheap vinyl! The brakes are also still a problem. I am already seeing signs of problems. These are my main complaints. I don't understand why Honda can't get the brakes to be more efficient. Other than that, I love my Accord. I was at 1st concerned about the 4-cyl. Not to worry! Power Plus!!!!!

By Miguel on August 17 @ 6:03 am
Excellent features for the money
This is my 4th Accord in the last 10 years. I bought EX V6 with leather, no navigation. Ride is smoother, improved noise road, excellent A/C. Don't feel transmission changes. You get very good features same as higher priced sedans for less money.

By BeautifulOne on January 17 @ 3:36 pm
Honda All the Way!!!!
Great car!!!! I love it!!!! For the last 2 years I had been driving a Volvo S80 T6 that kept breaking down on me. Finally, I said enough is enough, I went back to Honda. My Honda drives better than my Volvo did. The styling is great, the interior is great, and the ride is awesome. I missed driving a stick shift, so I had to get my new Accord with a stick, although I could have gotten the V6-6 speed (didn't want to pay for the extra gas with all the driving that I do) but the 4 cylinder 166 hp is great. Nice get up and go. Way to go Honda, same great car that I have come to know and love.

By LSH Jersey on March 9 @ 3:30 pm
Feels Like a Luxury Car, or Better
This is my third Honda and only because I wanted a newer, more luxurious Honda; not because my ten year old one had anything wrong with it. Aside from ridiculous, opulent features such as memory seats or rear facing TV cameras this car has everything. Although it was a bit pricey it seems like an outright bargin when compared to Lexus, Mercedes, BMW or even Acura. I think those luxury car drivers should discover what they're missing. Great acceleration, reasonable fuel economy considering the power, no rattles, controls precisely in place, comfortable heated seats, pleanty of room, great handling and visability. I only wish they offered a variety of interior colors.

By Calvin Mott on November 5 @ 2:20 pm
Came back to Accord
Wow! I have had 3 Accords previously and then had an '02 Acura TL. I wanted to stay with Honda/Acura but needed regular gas. We love our '06 Accord. Regular gas, more room than the TL, smoothest engine and trans. I have ever had, great fit and trim, fun to drive, great style and design improvements, good value. We like it much better than the Acura TL. No regrets.

By Seg on August 11 @ 7:30 am
Little bit of everything
I stepped out of an '04 S2000 to accommodate growing family and this has been the right choice. The car looks great, built very soundly, great performance for what it is and what it costs. It's a lot of fun to drive, and this is coming from a guy who has had cars w/400+hp and an S2000. The dual chrome exhaust pipes look good and remind me of my past sports cars. The leather is comfortable, the sound system is great, interior and exterior styling is slick, and the ride is smooth. Plus it's a honda so you know it's going to last you well beyond it's warranty. I'd recommend this car to anyone looking for a well-rounded commuter car that is fun to drive.

By John on February 20 @ 7:00 pm
Perfect - Except for the driver seat.
This is the best performing four cylinder I've ever driven, it does perform like a six. Handling is tight at any speed. The interior is high quality. At around 18,500, I feel I've gotten a pretty good deal as I've paid more in the past for less car. My only complaint is the angle of the front seat, I'm a little over six feet and have fairly long legs. After driving a couple of hours my right ankle starts to hurt from the sharp angle your right foot is forced at. No amount of seat adjusting seems to resolve this issue. I've never heard anyone else complain about the seat so perhaps I've the exception...

Quality Car with the best value
I have this car for about a week with Carbon Bronze and ivory leather that turn many heads on the road. The quality of this car is simply impeccable. The engine is smooth and full of power. You did not step much of the gas even with this four cylinders. With the value of this car, it is comparable to thousands more Accura but with 30+ MPG advangtage. I was originally on the market for a Camry but after inspecting 06 Accord. It was just a no brainer decision. Camry is simply too plain and not very exciting. With comparable equipment Camry, it costs about $2000 more with dealer's attitude, which I do not know where that came from. Overall, you just can not go wrong with this car.

By jsmith on November 6 @ 10:03 pm
Fantastic Car
Coming from a large 4x4 truck, this car is a refreshing change. Before my truck, I owned an '88 Accord that I was very attached to, yet reluctantly sold it. That attachement, along with gas prices, the world economy, social responsibilty, etc. is what brought me back to the Accords and Honda. The engine and transmission are butter smooth. The interior is quiet, fairly refined and comfortable. The suspension is taught and the steering precise. I still haven't went through the first tank of gas yet, but I expect the mileage to be as advertised. Overall, I am tickled with my Accord. Honda has done a very nice job with the design. The Accord SE is a GREAT value for the money.

By Gautam Gupta on September 1 @ 8:30 pm
Car to buy
I have researched to buy a new car for almost six months. There were few cars in the line to buy like 2006 Passat, Mazda etc, but this car over runs every one of them. For a middle class buyers this car holds the value for the longest duration and then there is HONDA to stand behind it for the quality and performance. I have till now driven @ 500 miles and have enjoyed every bit of it. Sales person's are great.

By David on August 27 @ 7:03 am
I love my accord!
This is a great car. Fun to drive, responds whenever you ask it to, and its luxurious, too. It also gets great gas mileage, from about 25 in the city to 40 on the highway, to 35 on the highway going at 85 miles an hour with the AC on. I love being seen in it, and the H-badge is proof that its never gonna break down. Best 22 grand I ever spent!

By Al on May 15 @ 3:46 pm
Well built car
I was in need to get a new car and I had made my decision on the Corolla. I tried Hundai, used Lexus, Toyota, Mazda and I decided to visit a Honda dealer and figured for a couple thousand more I could buy a much better car. You can feel a difference from your normal car and the Accord. If you don't mind flipping your rear view mirror at night time, you will save a lot of money for the exact same car.

Sporty and Practical
I am so glad I waited to get the 2006. The 6 speed in it is so much fun, Honda was smart to get up with the times! The comments and looks that you get on this case are always great. This case is quick, and fun to drive- it is a little bit of sports case in a sedan!

When will the Big 3 ever get a clue?
The LX-SE has great features in an outstanding car for decent money. You can't go wrong if you drive tons of business miles. Good feel from the road without being harsh. Great acceleration for a 4 cyl. Excellent resale value down the road.

By Mike Kirkpatrick on May 5 @ 9:50 pm
Best of the Best
The bottom line is this is the best car ever built for the price, and in its class. It is fun to drive.

By Chuck Wagon on October 30 @ 11:36 pm
Awesome Ride
I just bought the SE about a week ago. I love the way it handles. It is my first Accord and I love it. I would not go back to any other car. I traded in my Jetta for this Accord, and tell you what, it's like a HUGE upgrade. Sure I miss the heated mirrors that I had on Jetta and the sunroof. But I will settle for an Accord without them.

Awesome Car for the Money
My last vehicle was a Ford F-150 Supercrew. Great truck, but the gas mileage was hurting my pocket book and I felt guilty burning up all that valuable fuel. I had previously owned 3 Hondas and loved their reliability, so I decided to check out the new 2006 Accord. I was impressed with the new look of the car and as soon as I got behind the wheel I felt like I was at home. The car looks great (conservative sporty), has a tight driving feel, excellent acceleration, great ergonomics and reasonable gas mileage. It may not be quite as sporty as our other vehicle (a 2002 BMW 530i), but for the money it is tops on my list of sporty four door sedans!

By Laura Chappell on September 30 @ 1:50 am
Excellent car
Honda's are simply the best! Fantastic gas mil. (31 combined city/hwy), smooth ride, plenty of get up and go for a 4 cylinder-3rd Honda I've had and they keep getting better each time.

By MSletten on February 28 @ 12:26 pm
Excellent commuter vehicle
If you want a fun, stylish commuter that's thrifty at the pump, this is your car. So far I've averaged 32 mpg (measured by me) despite having nearly 170 hp on tap--a magnificent engineering feat by Honda! My perception of 4 cyl engines is forever changed. This is a quiet, comfortable, fun, economical and FAST car. Don't get the 4 cyl engine for your teenager thinking it'll keep him/her out of trouble! The five-speed shifter is butter-smooth, and with a hyraulically-assisted clutch makes putting the 170 ponies on the ground an enjoyable endeavor. And for the icing; airbags all around-- head, side and front. I'm very pleased with this vehicle!

By Tony on August 7 @ 11:40 pm
What a great car !!!
Safe, solid choice! I would recomend the V6, I tested the 4 cyl, and lets face it no matter how peppy it is, it's 80 hp less. Very quiet cabin. Very quick to respond, excellent brakes. I got tired of looking like a fool when trading in an american car. And probably I was a fool. Resale value on Honda is great and that says it all.

By HondaLover on January 20 @ 5:16 pm
Love IT!!!
This car is great! The 6-spped transmission is really fun to drive. The heated leather seats are great in the winter. XM is a great feature but there really isn't much on all those channels. This car again is great.

By black and tan on July 28 @ 5:06 pm
2006 Honda Accord
This is a near luxury car for a sedan price. It really has everything I need. About the only extra items I could even think of are memory seats and heated mirrors. The engine is powerful, the steering tight, the ride smooth and refined and the build quality first rate. It takes me longer to get anywhere because I always want to stretch out the drive experience.

By Honda User on February 18 @ 5:10 am
Not Happy
This car was built in good quality. However, this vehicle's design is absurd because Honda tried to reduce manufacturing cost. Despite the poor materials used, people love this just because of its reputation...

By Scotty on May 18 @ 8:50 pm
"Nothing But Class"
Best in its class! I was so impressed with the EX-L that I sold my Lincoln LS to get one. This is a complete-package automobile: affordable luxury, touring ability, and fuel economy. Kudos to Honda for consistent quality and continuous improvement.

By Alex Hidell on September 5 @ 6:53 pm
If it weren't so quiet...
I love everything about this car. It fits my family needs and is extremely fun to drive. The ONLY draw back, is that it is so quiet inside at low RPMs (idle) that I tend to misjudge where the friction point is in the clutch! So I've been tending to over rev the car from time to time, when starting out. But who can complain right? Its perfect for me. Also, the "little gadgets" that other auto manufacturers put into their cars that end up driving the costs up, are not included in the Accord.

By pc garber on December 31 @ 3:33 am
Beware of New Automatic Trans
I had less than 200 miles before the torque converter went. At 400 miles Honda replaced the transmission. I thought Hondas were supposed to be "bullet-proof".

By life_is2 on January 30 @ 12:13 am
Great car
Great car with great safety features, not to mention the great fuel economy. Very quiet ride with very good handling. I am averaging about 25 miles to the gallon with mixed highway/city driving. I only have 500 miles so far so the engine isn't broke in yet which should yield better gas mileage. I cannot express enough on how well the engine pulls.

By V6 Accord on October 25 @ 10:56 am
V6 Accord
Quality and great features continue for the 2006 Honda Accord. Fun to drive and good overall performance..

By Steve F on March 31 @ 11:50 am
My 2nd Accord
Drove in with my 02 just to see what I could get for a trade. 3 hours later I was driving home in an 06. Got an excellent deal and love the feel of the car. More powerful and sporty feeling than my 02.

By Phil on July 25 @ 11:50 pm
Honda-sized
This is our second Accord. We switched from mostly Chevys and Buicks. They were good cars, but the Accords are excellent. They are refined in terms of styling and operation, economical to operate, and just a pleasure to drive.

By Islandgrl on April 27 @ 4:40 pm
I LOOOOOVE my accord!!
My 2006 Accord Coupe is my first car..i couldn't have asked for more. = ) This car is so reliable, i never have ANY problems with it. It's easy to clean, fast...enough ; ) and the ride is very smooth. I HIGHLY recommend this car for ANY ages!

By George Knighton on December 31 @ 8:16 am
2006 Accord Coupe V6 Six Speed
Unbelievably full featured car. Wonderful torquey motor that pulls from low RPM in any gear. You can either leave it in a high gear and drive like it's (almost)an automatic or row through the gears and keep it in the high power band for fun. The car is amazingly quick for a Honda that runs on 87 octane. I can see why VSA is standard equipment because you can get yourself into some serious situations with lift throttle. :o

By Missouri Man on August 30 @ 4:50 pm
Great Value and Fun for the Money
I've owned 7 Accords, and this version is absolutely the finest yet. I've also owned Mazda, Toyota and Ford, but never found a vehicle as refined and reliable as Honda. I purchased the Accord Sedan V6 with the 6 speed manual transmission, and this baby can move!!! Great ride, control, and comfort. Highly recommended!

By lugnutz on December 23 @ 2:13 pm
Love the power
This car has exceptional power being that it runs on 87 octane. Mileage has been around 20 with a mixture of city/highway with plenty of full throttle runs on the freeway on ramps. Also a lot of warm-up in the driveway. Love the interior.

By Ashish on October 31 @ 4:33 pm
Best decision I made
Just bought my '06 Honda Accord LX/SE 5 speed manual and I absolutely love it. It is the the best decision I made. I was originally looking at the Civic, but got such an awesome deal for the Accord. It is much nicer than the Civic and much more roomier. Although I haven't driven it hard yet, the handling and shifting is awesome. Honda put together an excellent package for the money.

By mdsded on June 13 @ 5:43 am
Accord EX V6 AT w/ Leather & XM
Wow, I finally let myself be swayed by Car & Drivers rating the accord a 10 best most every year. Great power, comfort, ride with exceptional record of reliability. Not inexpensive but not BMW pricelike either. Couldn't be more pleased with the purchase as value for the dollar and a vehicle that's just plain fun to drive while inspiring confidence is more than I could have hoped to get. Car & Driver knows what they are writing about and I'm the beneficiary. Wohoo!

By canoe8 on July 21 @ 5:50 am
Wolf in Sheep's Clothes
Great sporty sedan with room. This car exceeds all expectations. Coming out of a 2001 BMW 325XI, the Accord with 6MT gives up nothing to the BMW in handling and exceeds it in power and driving fun. This car is 95% the same car as the Acura TL but loads less money. Get the EX sport package, it is well worth the money to give the car a little better appearance. Also added the splash guards and full nose mask. Got all these accessories for about $900, MSRP was $2200 installed. Paid $300 over invoice for the car.

By Art on May 31 @ 1:10 am
Fun & Practical
This car is great since I was looking for a 4-door,6 cyl., w/manual trans. The car is solid and has the necessary power when needed (it's so smooth that it's very easy to speed). The dash layout is simple and you also get a sunroof, seat warmers, and XM radio! There is just s slight bit of road noise at higher speeds. You'll be very surprise with the amount of leg room for the back seat passengers and also the amount of space in the trunk. The only item that I need to get use to is the very short distance to shift gears (I'm use to a much longer shift). It took about 10 weeks for my car to arrive Speacial order to get the Sapphire Blue - 6 speed).

By Tom4416 on June 22 @ 10:20 pm
Another Winner!
This is our fourth Honda Accord in fifteen years and each one is better than the previous. It's quite incredible that Honda offers this package for so much less than an LX where there is only minimal differences. Ride, handling and especially acceleration are exceptional for a four cylinder. Gas mileage on the first tank was 33mpg - 70% highway. Price was $100 over cost with some extras thrown in (mudguards, pinstripe). Although I find Accords generally boring, this one is less so than previous years. It's still a generic car, just one that will never break (we average 150,000 miles per vehicle with no major repairs - ever). You really can't go wrong with this car and package.

By fuegomexicano2 on July 15 @ 8:33 am
A good buy
I bought the vp edition and it gives me everything i need from comfort and a good ride plus fuel economy with the 2.4 Automatic. I really enjoy this car.

By Marty on August 31 @ 10:46 pm
Nice Car Overall
This is my first Honda. I really like the car. Comparing the price tag, the quality is satisfactory. It is a pleasure to drive the car. The suspension is good, it is quite, all the controls are where they should be and ergonomically designed. The only thing I did not like is the fact that on the drivers side, door lock and window lock buttons are not illuminated, very hard to see in the dark. The performance is good. It is a little problematic when climbing hills but not too much. That's probably OK for a 4 cylinder engine.

By Gary in Illinois on January 15 @ 1:33 pm
Wouldn't Drive Anything Else
This is my 4th Accord and the best yet. I wanted something a little more upscale than my 04 Accord, so I looked at the Acura TL, Audi A4, and Cadillac CTS. I couldn't believe the new Accord would outweigh the TL or A4, but it did. It took a while for the front end design to grow on me. The 06 changes are very pleasing, and I think the new rear design looks like Cadillac designs. No more looking beyond the Accord for something more upscale. I'm glad I looked, but much happier I stayed with the Accord. Quiet, comfortable, good looking, and a complete joy to drive. The best vehicle I've owned in my 30-plus years of driving. Honda family. My wife drives an 05 Pilot and loves it.

By Bryan on June 14 @ 9:20 pm
Accord V6 The Best
I have been a Honda Accord owner for over 9 years now. This model is definitely the best and the 240 horses respond on demand.............

By adam on September 1 @ 5:26 pm
good on power not on handle
Just bought 2006 LX V6 and drove 450 miles. Engine is good and has enough power, Nice quality inside and outside. City/Highway is about 20 mile/gallon. This car is not as solid as our 2003 VW passat on highway. The reason why we bought Accord is its history of reliability. Our 2003 VW Passat has too many problem although it is much more fun to drive than Accord. We almost sent Passat back to repair every three months. Our Acccord has too much road noise. It is a very soft driving car. When you push hard, first thing you feel is the "lag".

By Ron Obranovich on December 6 @ 12:56 am
Wrong size tires
This vehicle is equipped with the wrong size tires if you're looking for a car with a great ride. You feel every bump and even the smallest crack in the road. The tires on this Accord V-6, are the P215/50 R17 93V All-Season. After consulting with the tire manuf., they indicated to me in writing that these tires "will lack ride comfort, but give you more performance handling, this tire selected by Honda." I'm 62 yrs old and assumed the 2006 Honda would give a better ride and tire performance. The local Honda dealer refuses to swap the tires, and now I'm stuck with an $28,000 vehicle that lacks a comfortable ride.

By brad on September 18 @ 10:10 pm
Great value
I have driven my Accord 2,000 miles in less than 2 weeks and love the car. It has gotten 32.9 mpg to 36.2 mpg which is very impressive. The 4 cyl 5spd manual transmission has more than enough power for me and zooms 80 mph with no problems. If this Accord continues this performance i'll never own anything but a Honda from this point forward.

By Quizmaster on May 11 @ 7:53 pm
First Impressions
This is our first Honda and after the first two weeks we are very happy with it. It has amazing power for a 4 cylinder. I have driven mainly 6 cylinder cars but i think a 6 cylinder in an Accord would be overkill. We got 26 mpg on our 1st tank which mainly consisited of city driving. The Honda tradition of building quality cars is reflected in our vehicle. All the controls are just where they should be and fall easily to hand. The Honda Accord would be a good choice for anyone looking for a reliable car which also gets very good gas mileage. This may be my first Honda but if it continues to impress it won't be my last.

By NMR on August 29 @ 9:00 pm
Improved for 2006
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.

By christacey on June 24 @ 12:26 am
The Manual SE is one heck of a car
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.

By Marcia on November 1 @ 12:56 pm
2006 Honda Accord New Owner
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.

By Rick on January 24 @ 1:20 pm
2006 Accord LX
I own a 1990 Honda Accord with 180,000 miles and am completely satisfied that I got my money's worth. So far, I have found nothing with my 2006 Honda Accord that I am not completely satisfied with, except maybe the color selections available.

By lynne on April 26 @ 2:06 pm
Great Car
Everyone told me that Honda was a great car, now I'm a believer. A Nice smooth ride handles very well. This is my first Honda and I know I will be a return customer.

By M. FULLER on June 26 @ 10:06 am
Nothin' by a honda
This is my 5th honda and 3rd new one in 6 yrs. Never will buy anything but a honda. Love everything about it. First time for the coupe. It's been the most fun. Glad i bought the '06 coupe, didn't care for the back of '05. Never felt the need for the v6, this one is peppy enough for me

By Bruce on August 27 @ 3:03 pm
My First Honda
I have been in Fords my whold life and this is my first Honda. I will be in Honda's from now on as it is going now. This is a beautiful car that drives great! It has the smoothest shifter I have even in more than 20 years of driving manuals. The car is a pleasure to drive and gets fantastic gas milege on the road and in town. A Very Comfortable Automobile. I test drove a Mazda 6 and a Nissan Altima and I have to say I am pleased I decided to go with the Honda!

By dorkus on March 31 @ 2:56 pm
Words do nothing...
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.

By fastcarguy on July 7 @ 3:10 pm
I hear imports were suppose to be better
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.

By TedG954 on December 10 @ 5:53 pm
I "upgraded" from an Acura
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!

By Gordon on July 13 @ 7:46 am
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!!!

By Dr. B on November 9 @ 7:46 am
One SWEET Ride
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.

By mom on September 11 @ 9:53 am
mom swaps minivan
Tired of driving Ford minivan to commute everyday. Pleasure to drive. Love the moonroof!14 year old daughter thought it was a "sexy" car for her mom. The red color is great! Love the smooth ride and volume controls on the steering wheel.

By Hondo on October 15 @ 8:16 pm
New Accord over TSX and used cars
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.

By J on May 2 @ 2:10 pm
Excellent!
Fun and classy. Gas mileage on streets is probably about 17-19 mpg, not 21 like the sticker says.

By MaxG on November 19 @ 2:20 pm
Outstanding Mix of Sport & Luxury
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.

By Jake T on May 29 @ 9:03 pm
Great Car
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.

By TheGraduate on April 19 @ 1:03 am
I'm Impressed
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.

By Dan on August 24 @ 1:56 am
Solid Family Car
The 06 Accord is a solid reliable family sedan that should fit the needs of most anyone. It is not the lowest price option but I believe it is the best value.

By 5pines on February 17 @ 5:20 am
Best Honda Yet
this is our third honda....bought an 02 civic ex for our son, and had an 03 CRV ex....they were great cars....traded in the CRV for an accord, mainly for a little better gas mileage, cheaper insurance, and a little more luxury....so far we've been VERY happy with our accord ex-l

By Ron on September 10 @ 8:50 am
'06 Accord SE
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.

By ddent01 on September 29 @ 9:03 pm
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!

By JoeA on March 19 @ 11:43 pm
What a great auto!
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!

By mickey on October 14 @ 11:43 pm
One Of The Best
I used to buy domestic cars but could never found one the had a balance of everything. This car makes driving 50 miles one way to work a dream. If u r looking 4 a midsize sedan this is the car to get.

By ckal on February 3 @ 4:10 pm
4 cyl surprise
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.

By Rick B on December 28 @ 12:56 pm
Honda Accord
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.

By RICH on September 12 @ 4:46 pm
Honda accord lx se--an awesome vehicle
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!

By Ron on October 13 @ 6:40 am
One sweet car, once again
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."

By Tbone on April 15 @ 8:00 pm
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.

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.

Forget the Toyota Camry
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.

Affordable Luxury
I looked at everything out there. I wanted leather, wood grain interior, dependability, and sharp looks. For my price range, it came down to a Certified Used Acura or a brand spanking new Accord (I tested Camry and Altima and they weren't in the same class). Obviously I went with the Accord and have been very pleased for the last 2 months.

Arizona Accord
This is my 4th Honda. As expected, an excellent car in quality and performance. The redesign of the 2006 makes the care look even better.

Best Mid-Size Sedan
You can't beat this car for the money. No American made car i had even caddys are this well put together.I have 4000 miles on it no rattles or squeaks. My only gripe is that the radio sounds fuzzy on certain stations.

By MARIE MCFARLIN on January 21 @ 12:23 am
GOOD
this is a great car, it lives up to expectation, this is my first purchase of a honda product, i am extremely pleased with this vehciles and its dependability.

By David on May 7 @ 12:06 pm
Love it!
This is our first Honda in several years. We replaced a Chrsler 300C and have to say we love this Honda even more! It's fun to drive, comfortable, and has great features. The new rear end design with the dual exhaust gives it a very nice look. The seats are firm and comfortable and the leather is soft. No problems after 2500 miles and still loving to drive it! Feels solid and safe! Highly recommend!

By plrae12 on March 17 @ 1:30 am
Great Deal
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.

By tvs513 on January 12 @ 5:13 pm
New Accord owner very happy so far
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.

By Mike on August 28 @ 10:03 pm
Love my 2006 Honda LX SE
After 2 Civic's, 1 Odyssey, and 1 Del Sol, I finally purchased an Accord. I've been in love with Honda's since the mid-80's, and this Accord is probably my favorite vehicle yet. It is beautiful, and I love driving it. It is such a comfortable ride.

By Bern on August 16 @ 4:23 am
Just the Best
It has been 10 years since I owned my last Honda Accord and I wonder why I ever strayed, I felt comfortable the minute I sat in my new Accord. It handles and corners on a dime, it is just so responsive. Ive had 29 miles to the gallon, which I did not expect. Trunk space , leg room, luxurious interior, fabulous resale value.What more can anyone ask?....maybe four wheel drive. Well, cant have everything.

By Jon on August 16 @ 6:03 am
Great ride, interior problems
Purchased Accord 4 months ago. Beautifully smooth ride. Powerful for a i4, get manual transmission to truly appreciate. Problem with interior fabric quality. 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. My girlfriend has a 2006 Camry and loves the sportiness and comfort of my Accord. Camry and Accord are like night and day in terms of ride. Camry is built for pedestrian driving while Accord can really hug the turns and accelerate in traffic.

By Virginia on June 1 @ 11:26 am
Honda Wins With This One!
The last Honda I owned, a 2000 Accord LX Coupe V-6, had some issues. So, I was a bit reluctant to buy another Honda. All I can say is "THANK YOU HONDA!" for restoring my faith in their products. My Accord has been a dream, from its excellent gas mileage to the outstanding sound system. And by the way. Yes, I am STILL happy.

By Milton on February 4 @ 7:30 am
Sorry I bought this car
Engine is great, handling not too bad. However, the clutch engages so high off the floor, it makes smooth shifting very difficult.This was not a problem with my S-2000. Clutch evidently cannot be adjusted. I won't have this car very long. I found out now ( way too late ) that this ia a known Honda problem for many years. That's inexcusable. This is my last Honda.

By 2006 Accord Hybrid on March 2 @ 10:20 am
Car of the future!
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. I love it, and although it was close to my upper budgetary limit for a car, I consider it to be one of the best purchases ever.

By Bernae on December 21 @ 5:53 am
Excellent Ride
I love this car! This is my 5th Honda and my 4th Accord. I would have to say this is the BEST by far! I get a lot of compliments on this car and I am truly proud to have this vehicle.

By theaccordfactor on January 9 @ 7:36 pm
yet another one...
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? You can't go wrong with a car with known reliability, quality and build.

By Jay on April 19 @ 6:10 am
This car has it all
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.

By G on October 21 @ 12:20 am
Be careful!
Bought my accord in early January 06. Love the ride, navi, heated seats, etc. Love this car. BUT - found my car missing within 3 weeks of purchase. Car was stolen, driven around by hoodlum for 3 weeks and totaled w/ more than 18k in body damage. Be careful! I may have an anti-theft, gas shut off switch built into my next car.

By pauly on February 13 @ 2:16 pm
goodbye camry...hello accord
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.

By Bill on October 16 @ 11:23 am
The Best Car
I absolutely LOVE my 06 Accord with navigation and XM radio!! The ride is so quiet and very smooth! I am a large man ( 280 lbs +) and find the Accord roomy and comfy. My gas mileage is excellent ( average 28 mpg)....I can recommend this solid, reliable to anyone!!

By Jobuck on March 27 @ 12:03 am
No regrets whatsoever
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.

By harry on November 21 @ 1:50 pm
my 2nd Accord EX-V6
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.

By dennis on October 28 @ 12:10 am
Wise choice
I bought my accord in Jan. I am very impressed on the quality and comfort of this fine sedan. by far the best car in it's class. I do recommend spending the extra $$ for the v6 you won't be sorry, It kicks.

By pdk on March 9 @ 7:36 am
Great choice
It had been 10 years since I had owned a car similar in size to this Accord. The ride is extremely comfortable and it is fun to drive. There is little to no wind noise however there is some unexpected road noise. This is a great all around car for any age buyer

By dmcanal1 on October 12 @ 5:16 pm
Feels like a 50 k luxury car
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.

By HONDALVR on August 10 @ 5:20 pm
2 FAST
It's fun. It's fast. It almost drives its self. Shifting is effortless. It can do 80mph at 2,500 RPM. Probably the best car I have ever owned.

By Robert Smith on March 12 @ 8:13 pm
Honda still doing it right.
I have owned honda cars in the past. With the gas prices the way the are I went for an economical car. Accord was the choice and honda is sill doing it right. The 2.4 has great pep and getting over 32 m.p.g. As in the past the car is fun to drive solid ride and oh yea, the air bag system is second to none. Thanks again Honda for making my choice easy.

By ntimmerman on November 16 @ 4:20 pm
Surprisingly Sporty
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.

By rwdrew on June 11 @ 4:26 am
Exceeded Expecations
A veritable wolf in sheeps clothing: I actually find myself making excuses to drive more. Great driving dynamics: comfortable seats, silky Acura powertrain (including wheels from '04 TL/CL Type S), and exceptional visibility. I can't believe Honda built this version of the Accord - but I sure am glad they did.

By Marcia on September 14 @ 10:56 pm
Going Japanese
I always had Chevy. I was lucky with them, but the prices, the quality are not the same. I love my new Honda. Everything about it. Just have to be careful, because when I look the speed is more than the limit.

2006 Accord EX V-6
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.

By BOBK on August 22 @ 12:13 pm
Just my assessment
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.

By Steve on February 8 @ 9:20 am
Excellent
It is a great car for the money and is really the only car that makes Toyota improve the Camry year after year.

By DickCheney on February 28 @ 10:40 pm
Best car yet
This is the best car I have driven or purchased yet. Volvo can't even come close. The navigation is awesome and very accurate (with little goofs, very rare though). Interior is way better than most ~$30k cars. In short, this is the best investment for your money.

By Amanda on May 1 @ 10:30 am
ValuePackage is still great car!
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.

By Vanderblat on November 8 @ 12:16 am
Best Value for the $$
I was looking at the Altima3.5 v6 , Mazda 6 V6, Camry v6 SE. the Honda is just a better buy! The Honda is the only one that doesn't need Premium fuel. The Accord has a great revised rear end (love the LED) awesome wheels, great interior fit & finish, Tons of space. Fuel ecconomy is great for a V6 with 244HP. To sum it all up, the Honda is a great everyday car looks great drives fast has a very good 5 speed Auto tranny you get a lot of "zoom zoom" when you need it and all drama free. No doubt the best car you can get for the $$ period.

By Tony on January 3 @ 1:46 pm
It's a Honda
This is my third Accord 5 speed. The first tank of gas I got 32.23 mpg I travel 130 miles a day this car is very fast and comfortable handles well.

By msiseng on May 3 @ 5:03 am
Came Back To Honda
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.

By Tallman1 on November 4 @ 10:16 pm
Love this car
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.

By Laurie on July 16 @ 12:53 am
I love my new Honda!!
I was very hesitant to purchase a new car after driving my old one for 7 years. It is so nice to get off from work now and get into my wonderful new Honda. I have been very pleased with my purchase.

By Stuart on August 6 @ 8:56 pm
Should have been better...
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.

By adrian on October 18 @ 9:56 am
Smart blast of a car
This car is a rocket. It is very close to luxery as well. Love the navigation system and it gets great mileage. Love it...

By Angellkis on June 3 @ 12:33 pm
Auto makers can take a lesson from Honda
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.

By ernie k. on September 18 @ 2:20 am
ern's opinion?
Great car. Three days after purchase drove from tn to lower texas and all over tx. Very comfortable and averaged 27.5 mpg. Fun to drive and got accolades from many people.

By C Metcalf on July 6 @ 2:40 am
Not your father's family sedan.
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.

By Tony on September 14 @ 1:43 am
Three Times The Charm
This is my third Accord 5 speed coupe This car the best one yet in gas mileage performance, comfort and looks.

By Jane on June 14 @ 12:03 am
Great features well-balanced options
Purchased 1 month ago at 25 miles and has 2400 miles on it now. It is a great car. Well balanced features: Great stereo (6 CD charger), powerful heating and A/C, map lights. My spouse wants to sell Acura and get one of this, seriously. I was tired of Toyota's options etc. This car has everything. Internal build quality, materials are above average. One can see the ergonomic details Honda always pays attention to: nicely positioned cup holders, very comfortable seats and ride. Very sporty and tight riding. Very enjoyable ride. I did not experience any a rattle noise or highway riding noise.

By George on September 21 @ 2:40 am
My First Honda
This is my first Honda, and I am loving it. There is a lot of car for the money. This car is great to drive to and from work, which is 40 mins each way for me. I am looking at 31.5 MPG at this time. The car is still breaking in.

By R on February 21 @ 1:46 am
Sound Car With High Resale
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.

By lawrence on March 4 @ 9:53 am
Good Value
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.

By B. Bell on September 27 @ 1:13 am
Disappointment in mileage
I do love my car but the wool was pulled over our eyes about the mileage. I adverage about 26-28 miles per gallon far less than the sticker said. The was not able to deduct the car being a Hybrid on taxes as told by salesperson.

By suzees on November 22 @ 10:26 am
1st Honda I've owned
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.

By max508 on December 13 @ 1:26 am
No conflict with an Accord
Purchased the Accord in Nov. 2005 using the Edmunds referral program. The Accord Ex 4 cyl. auto w/ leather and nav. is a middle class Mercedes without the reliability problems. 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. On a recent trip south, the Accord recorded 34.5 mpg on regular gas. Class, comfort, and economy--love it!

By WVUALUM on December 22 @ 2:20 pm
Great car if the deal is right!!!
Just traded my 2003 Civic Lx for the Accord. The Accord EX V6 (4door) is a great car. The car has great pick up and a very smooth ride. I love all of the features on the EX. Love this car so far.

By Matthew on January 13 @ 4:36 pm
Home Run
I was a former owner of a 2004 EX V6, which was totaled in February with minimal damage to myself and passengers. I took delivery of my EX-L in March and I can safely say that I will keep this car for at least 7 years. I like the pep of the big 4-cylinder engine, the smooth ride balanced with good handling, upscale interior and exterior, and the steadily improving gas mileage.

By Rocky on November 19 @ 8:56 pm
We Love Honda Accords
This is our third Honda Accord and we still have a 4 door 1998 Accord in excellent condition. We sold a 1993 model, still in great shape, to buy this one. It's very pleasant to drive, nice feel to it, comfortable. We love the way the Accord handles.

By Jake on July 4 @ 4:53 am
Hard to get more for your money
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.

By Honda Owner X on December 23 @ 3:13 pm
2006 Souped-Up Accord Rocks
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!

By Einee on December 14 @ 1:40 am
2006 LX 4dr
Bought this car in December '05. A lot of car for the money, very affordable, nice ride. Had a 2000 Accord, 2 dr. V6 prior to this one and was very happy with it. Will stick with Honda till another company can do it better.

By Bob on January 19 @ 9:00 pm
Honda Accord "An excellent vehicle"
I researched the Accord, Camry, and Altima and the Galant and selected the Accord. The Accord is very competent, refined and nimble. Its fun to drive. It feels very sporty.

By mike on September 6 @ 4:50 pm
The best one yet
Honestly, I have always been with honda. When they changed their design I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. So far very happy. Bought it on april 10 and on april 19 I have driven this car 738 miles. I love this car

By Wasy on November 5 @ 11:23 pm
I hate oil companies and love this car!
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!

By Ritchie on November 10 @ 2:16 am
Some quick thoughts
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.

By Hossjoee on November 25 @ 4:40 am

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.

My excellent honda
I love my Honda. It runs great, no problems so far, very comfortable and the ride is nice and smooth. My car is so roomy too.

Best kept secret
Ive had the car for about two weeks. I had leased it with the intention of lower payments. I have owned lots of sport cars, for the money, this car is a steal. 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.

Impressive Coupe
What a bargain for such a nice coupe with impressive list of safety features. 166 hp is plenty enough to tackle urban jungle with great ride, handling and comfort. A peace of mind for years to come considering great fuel economy, safety and reliability. Less trip for repair or to the gas pump - ah! heaven.

By Adam on May 9 @ 6:23 am
Great so far
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.

By jeffandheather123 on October 29 @ 10:06 am
Worth EVERY Penny
Great lease special, comfortable ride, enough power to get by, although I'd like a little more, great gas mileage, unbeatable deal considering no one else makes a coupe (nissan, toyota) to directly compete with this. For those who are looking for more features, the EX-L is a great car, a little pricey but excellent value.

By Derrick on February 20 @ 8:30 pm
Satisfied Honda Driver for 8 years
Nice car. Handles very well. It is easy to avoid possible accidents, road debris, etc. Accelerates well considering it’s a four cylinder. It has a excellent air filtration system.

By frank g. fabbro on May 29 @ 8:23 am
Performance
I think it is the best car today for the money. I believe that it has all the features that you need.

By Nothing on November 2 @ 5:36 pm
Great car, needs a few changes
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.

By dss7758 on March 6 @ 7:36 am
My Accord
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.

By Mark on August 21 @ 1:43 am
Fun car for a family sedan
We replaced our 95 Camry with this Honda, and no regrets!! Whereas it is roomy inside, you dont feel that you are on a boat. This can not be said of the 2006 Camry. No problems whatsoever in the 5 months we drove it.

By Jim on November 25 @ 11:36 am
Love It
Our first honda and we really like the accord

By Jim Suss on December 13 @ 8:10 pm
Just bought it
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.

By Barry on February 6 @ 9:53 am
So I bought the Hybrid
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.

By RetiredGuy on July 11 @ 11:00 am
Great Car!
The first sedan I've owned in 24 yrs. The handling and stability are outstanding with plenty of power producing a very comfortable ride. The engine is very quiet for a V-6.

By Tucson Tony on February 11 @ 8:36 pm
Too much mileage saving Hype
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

By Dave on October 20 @ 5:26 pm
Hard to top for 27k
This is probably the best car I have ever owned. The interior styling and the quality of the materials makes you feel as though you are driving a 50k car. The car has the right balance of luxury, comfort, and performance without looking and feeling like a family car. Quick quiet and fun to drive and turns heads too.

By C.Clark on January 20 @ 10:10 am
Wow
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.

By happywithmypurchase on May 29 @ 10:43 am
Pleasantly Surprised!
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

By Bobby on March 9 @ 8:16 pm
GREAT CAR
The LX SPECIAL EDITION is a great car for the price compared to higher priced American cars in the same class. This car is fun to drive and very reliable. Great job Honda keep building cars people want to own for a long time.

By Tom Kiley on July 21 @ 10:20 pm
Tom Kiley's review
I have had the car for three weeks and have taken two trips that were over 200 miles each way and have found the car to be very comfortable, quiet with good power for acceleration. My on road gas mileage averaged 32 mpg.

By oldmansi on May 5 @ 6:50 pm
Rock solid
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.

By Bill on March 1 @ 8:46 pm
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!

By William on July 4 @ 3:50 am
Honda VP after SAAB 93
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!

By Brett Guthrie on July 17 @ 4:43 pm
Absolutely Amazing
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!

By ench on July 20 @ 12:33 am
Outstanding Value
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.

By VMA131Marine on February 5 @ 1:23 am
Pleasantly surprised with gas mileage
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.

By griff33 on June 19 @ 7:20 pm
I'm lovin' it!
Just purchased my 2006 accord and absolutely am in love! Originally owned a 1993 accord and sadly traded it for an SUV! BIG MISTAKE. I drive a lot and this car is a pleasure to drive and it's nimble on the highways when needed. The leather seats are comfortable and the navi will be a great asset to me for business meetings.

By perry beck on November 1 @ 9:33 pm
My Honda Accord Hybrid
My 3rd Honda Accord. Outstanding body style. Excellent interior finishing. Very comfortable to ride in. Performance is excellent. As good as my V8 Durango. I wish that it came in a few other colors. Getting into and out of is not as easy as my last Accord. The power front seats are great. I have enjoyed the XM radio a lot. The car is very quiet and a pleasure to drive

By fjp on September 8 @ 11:16 pm
the best so far
This my fourth Accord going back to 1987. The 2006 is fun to drive, gets excellent gas mileage and comfortable. I looked at the Mercedes 230 and BMW 300 series and they can not compare with the Honda's overall value and quality.

By ANDREW on December 15 @ 2:16 am
Nice All Rounder That Is Fun To Drive
Bought my car in Feb, enjoying it so far. Clutch took a while to get used to, and i wish the nose was further differentiated from other/previous Accords. Everything else is pretty awesome about this car, i especially like the little orange 'mood' light next to the interior lights. Stereo is pretty nice and interior is well executed.

By greenice on January 25 @ 11:16 pm
Love the V6 engine + 6 speed manual
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.

By cman on July 20 @ 3:23 pm
Best in Class Value
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.

By First Honda on March 27 @ 12:13 pm
My first Honda
This is the first Honda I have owned. I purchased the VP. It had all the safety features I was looking for in a car. Features that came standard and not optional as in most american cars.

By MADGSF on December 14 @ 11:53 am
Happy Honda Customer
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.

By Elaine on August 31 @ 8:06 pm
2006 Honda Accord
This car is a great get in and go car. I had a Jeep previously and it didn't satisfy my need to handle the curves with ease.

By Peech22 on June 23 @ 2:36 pm
Great Buy
The Honda Accord SE is by far one of the best sedans considering the price. It's smooth and has most features that the EX carries, but for much less in cost.

By Erin on June 23 @ 9:13 am
So Happy I went with My Honda
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).

By FL3 on July 5 @ 11:46 am
LOVE it!
I bought this originally for my wife ... but now we struggle almost daily to see who will drive the Accord! Extremely agile and comfortable. Lots of fun! Very economical. We both LOVE it!

By Mardi C. on June 4 @ 7:06 pm
Better than Benz!
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!

By Adrienne on January 16 @ 6:53 pm
My first new car is a honda :)
I just bought this vehicle about a month ago. Coming from a '03 Chevy Silverado, this is much more comfortable and fun to drive. The gas mileage is amazing also. 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.

By shane on May 18 @ 4:30 am
luv da honda
Steering and suspension give sports car feel. Stereo sound clear and crisp. Acceleration responsive and adequate for a 4 cyl engine. Gas mileage excellent.

By Maddog on September 18 @ 5:56 pm
A superb car
I have read reviews complaining about rattles and premature wear and tear on the interior parts. After 7 months my car is rattle free, vault solid, and the interior is flawless. It handles better than I expected and it is really fast.Itis still a pleasure every time I get in the car - I find reasons to go driving in spite of the current gas prices.

By Yanni on March 6 @ 7:10 pm
Very Nice
The most perfect vehicle I have ever owned and driven. Just the right size, great on gas, insurance and very practical. I'll probably never buy an American made vehicle again due to their poor mpg compared to Honda.

By jordan on May 29 @ 3:10 am
great car and fun to drive for an 18 yr
great handling and very comfortable. just as fast as i need it to be. im kind of a nuts driver so the 4 cyl keeps me good.good gas milage. i have the black cloth seats which are nice but get very dirty easily. next time i'll go with the leather.

By Chris on April 29 @ 3:56 pm
Well Rounded
Three months, NO REGRETS. Great balance of performance and amenities for the price. Smooth transmission and seemingly power in all gears. Form and function in one slick car.

By DAvid J on March 14 @ 7:50 pm
Its an okay ride
Very nice overall vehicle, 4Cyl, gets great mileage

By HondaCommuter on March 9 @ 5:00 am
Accord
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 just moved down from an SUV which was a great vehicle but I am seeing what I missed in a car that can get around.

By Hybrid Honey on November 2 @ 4:33 am
Gripes
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!

By 1st honda on February 12 @ 5:56 pm
1st honda
Awesome little car my first Honda, I can see now why Honda gets all the press. The only beef I have is I'm not very pleased with the front seats my back hurts after driving a distance in this car but overall I am very pleased. This car glides along you barely know you're driving it.

By SL on August 8 @ 12:16 am
Excellent Car
This is a great vehicle for the price. I had a 2003 Acura TL and the 2006 Accord - EX-L is nicer. This is my 9th Honda product and the price is great for all you get.

By Jaye on August 17 @ 5:56 am
Awesome Car!!!
I have had my Honda Accord about 3 weeks.. I owned a CRV previously. I absolutely LOVE the accord! The NAV system, XM radio, and leather interior is the BEST. I am so glad I got all the extras because I really appreciate the luxuries.. I never had them before.. Drives like a dream and shifts perfectly.. The BEST car ever!

By mrbritcar on February 19 @ 10:16 am
Look Carefully Before You Buy
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.

By RebeccaRose on May 27 @ 10:16 pm
Love it!
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!

By Joe on August 11 @ 7:23 pm
Better Than Expected
I bought my 06 Honda Accord mostly for the fuel economy. This car has turned out to be more than I expected. The ride is smooth and the 4 cylinder engine has more get up and go than I would have believed. I have gotten nothing but compliments on my purchace. This is my first Honda but I will be buying Honda again in the future.

By Macdawgg on February 26 @ 6:43 am
Love my Honda
I just brought this car on Tues (5/31). I have the LX-V6 model and I love it. It's quieter than my Camry and the ride is smooth as well. If you're looking for a dependable car try this one-You won't be sorry.!!

By Julie Hazelton on November 27 @ 2:13 pm
Not surprised
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!

By melissa on February 19 @ 7:53 pm
Glad We Upgraded
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!

By Si on June 12 @ 3:56 pm
My dream car
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.

By Ab on May 28 @ 5:40 pm
Execllent first Honda
We really enjoy the car, ride, power, economy, leather heated seat. Quality of sound system. Storage is first rate as is the surprising trunk space.

By GJ on August 15 @ 6:53 pm
Nice Buy
Cars dives well and smooth at 70- 80mph. I do alot of highway driving for work and the car has been great so far.

By Carolyn on July 18 @ 9:36 pm
best little 4 cylinder ever
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.

By wgrant94 on December 28 @ 5:50 pm
Hybrid Accord w/ Navigation
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?

By daavo on June 12 @ 7:00 am
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.

By Shane on September 18 @ 2:10 pm
Comparing 06 Accord to 07 Camry
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.

By Seth Bernstein on January 9 @ 8:13 pm
Smoothest 4 Cylinder I've Driven
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.

By Marco on December 12 @ 1:33 am
My Accord is Not Yours!
I love this car thr fuel economy is great and fun to drive never lets you down, and looks good too, not as good as BMW 3, but it is roomier and a lot more reliable.

By atlom on March 6 @ 8:53 am
A car that makes sense
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.

By Parish on July 27 @ 1:26 pm
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.

By Jay on January 16 @ 10:33 pm
Purchased 4 months ago, Follow-up Review
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

By Robyn on March 18 @ 7:53 am
My Honda Review
I love it! It is a cool design and lots of fun to drive. Great on gas too.

A very nice Honda
This is my first ever Honda and I love it a lot. Nice styling and good build quality. I own a black one and took it to tint window and install HID headlight now the car looks as nice as a BMW. The performance of the car is excellent but need some practice for the cluch before get used to it. Haven't try to push the car hard but you can feel a lot of power above 3000rpm. A very comfortable, fast and fun to drive car for everyday use.
