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

Doesn't everyone who buys a Toyota expect it to just run? With 7500 miles on the odometer, I can say I've got no issues nor do I expect any. No weird noises, nothing to take back to the dealer for, it all just works, and has been since I got it. That is a reassuring start, but something I've come to take for granted with the Toyota products. full 2015 Toyota RAV4 review
