What People Are Saying about Reliability and the Honda Accord

What Our Members Are Saying about Honda Accord Reliability and Durability

Reliability and Durability of the Honda Accord: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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.
2011 4dr Sedan 177-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Now approaching 140,000 miles and other than 2 sets of tires, only cost has been maintenance as called for by Miantenance Minder. I drove an 2008 Accord to 150,000 and passed on to a family member with similar experience (although brakes had been replaced).
2010 4dr Sedan 271-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
I drove each of my Accords for more than 14 years with no major repairs.
2010 2dr Coupe 271-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Reputation....Still new I have no personal experience
2010 4dr Sedan 271-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Wife had an Accord from 2000 and very little ever went wrong with it until it dropped the transmission July 2009. No brainer to get another one to serve as the every-day family car.
2010 4dr Sedan 177-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
After owning and repairing many European cars, it is comforting to know that the Accord is much more likely than not to have extraordinary reliability and durability. It is a calming feeling.
2009 4dr Sedan 190-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Historical experience. The parts that matter most to drivability will last - in my experience an Accords drivetrain will remain functional while the body rusts away.
2009 4dr Sedan 271-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Our two previous Hondas gave us exemplary trouble-free driving. In eleven months and 19,000 miles so has this one.
2009 4dr Sedan 190-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Amazing reliability track record
2009 4dr Sedan 190-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Proven track record. Have owned other accords
Reliability and Durability of the Honda Accord: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
window and trunk rattles
2006 4dr Sedan 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Another issue I had was around 60,000 miles, I had to replace the power steering pump. I heard this whine sound from under my hood and next thing I know, I am coughing up another $500 to replace the pump. I had all the fluids changed when recommended and this still happened. Between the motor mount and power steering pump, I have spent $1300 more on this accord than I did on my 99 Camry.
2006 4dr Sedan 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
My issue with the accord is at 38,000 miles I was told I had a broken motor mount. I am not sure why or how a broken motor mount would occur in under 3 years of ownership. I found that annoying because the car was maintained and not beaten on and this happens. Nothing better than coughing up $700.00 just before your child is born.
2006 2dr Coupe 244-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
This car has been at the dealer almost once every couple of months, it feels like the car is just falling apart in my hands. Just the other day the power window controls fell out of the door. The transmission sometimes refuses to go into gear from Park
2003 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
cold start valve or cylinder slap after 53K miles
2002 2dr Coupe 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
I bought the car so I could drive it, change the oil, and keep driving it. But from faulty fog lights, worn radio controls, two transmissions, two alternators, and numerous rattles, I have not reached my goal of maintenance-free driving and quality.
