TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Honda Accord

2015 Honda Accord Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2014 This "why to buy" is tentative. While the regular Accord's reliability has been excellent, Honda has produced some decidedly unreliable hybrids in the past. So I'd like to see more time and miles before declaring the new Accord Hybrid glitch-free. The new Fusion had a glitchy first year, including poor panel fits, but has improved since. full 2014 Honda Accord review

YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Sedan 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
It's been fairly reliable. I have put nearly 80,000 miles and so far I have only had to deal with brakes. full 2013 Honda Accord review
2012 2dr Coupe 271-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
Our past Hondas have been the most reliable cars we've owned. I would expect the Accord Coupe to be much more reliable long-term than the Volkswagen. full 2012 Honda Accord review
