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

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

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

It was neck and neck between the Mazda3 and the MINI COOPER. I had my heart set on the MINI, but reliability was the deciding factor. I spent countless hours researching vehicles over the last several months and was very dismayed at all the mechanical issues that plague the MINI. On the other hand the Mazda3 seems to be very much trouble free. I really wanted a MINI, but I knew its 'cool' fun to drive personality wouldn't be enough to overcome the reliability headaches I could expect. full 2012 Mazda Mazda3 review
