Honda Accord Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 2dr Coupe 278-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 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
CVT 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).

Reputation....Still new I have no personal experience
2010 4dr Sedan 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-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 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-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.
2010 4dr Sedan 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
I drove each of my Accords for more than 14 years with no major repairs.
2009 4dr Sedan 189-horsepower 2.4L I4
7-speed shiftable CVT FWD
Amazing reliability track record
2009 4dr Sedan 278-horsepower 3.5L V6

Consumer Reports and many owner reviews confirm the Accord is a reliable car, maintaining its pluses even after high mileage.

2006 4dr Sedan 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
CVT 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 4dr Sedan 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
CVT 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 2dr Coupe 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-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
2005 4dr Sedan 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
CVT FWD
Long ago, someone warned me of Honda batteries being way too small. And what do you know, I did end up putting five batteries into our Accord over ten years. One of them, the alernator fried it. Another one just puked flat dead. Three others developed bad cells, always in hot weather. We live in high desert, we expect somewhat shorter battery life, but a battery every two years is too much. We've just bought a new Civic; this time I'll just plan on swapping batteries about every 24 months.

cold start valve or cylinder slap after 53K miles
2002 2dr Coupe 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual 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.

High ratings from every car review I have read. Very high resale value and see used ones all the time with 150k+ miles - I should be able to own this 10+ years.

2008 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
It goes without saying that everyone wants a reliable vehicle. I believe that Toyota is not alone in that objective, the other manufacteurs have caught up with them.
2008 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Unfortunately, I had to get rid of this car because with less than 100, 000 miles (it had 95, 000) and having beenexcellently maintained it gave me oil sludge problem, and the dealer recommended engine replacement... Unvelievable in a Toyota with such a low, well maintainedvehicle. I will never, ever again buy a Toyota. It was my first (and last) one. I would not recommend it to any one...
2008 4dr SUV 269-horsepower 3.5L V6

This vehicle has consistently rated high in all professional reviews, and in consumers reviews. I agree.
