2004 Honda Accord Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2004 4dr Sedan 166-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp manual FWD 30-34 highway miles per gallon is pretty good for a car of its size.
2004 4dr Sedan 271-hp 3.5L V6 5-sp automatic FWD All the Accords I have owned have beat the highway EPA estimates. This Accord with the V6 is rated at 30 mpg. On my last trip to St. Louis I got 32 mpg with 4 passengers and driving around 75 mph. Hard to beat in a mid-sized sedan.
2004 4dr Sedan 177-hp 2.4L I4 5-sp automatic FWD 2.4L provides outstanding economy given size/weight of vehicle. Average 30MPG in over 50,000 miles.
2004 4dr Sedan 271-hp 3.5L V6 5-sp automatic FWD Excellent mileage for a 240 hp V6. Drove it round trip from Dallas to Florence, Kentucky and averaged 30.2 mpg with an average speed of around 75 mph.
