Why the 2005 Honda Accord?

Reliability & durability

Havent had one problem since bought new in 2005. Baby the car and change the oil at 3500 mile intervals myself since I have a thing about sediments and such left in the engine over time.

Price or payments

Price was 19 out the door including tax for me new in MT. Dealership cost may be high, but the chances your car is going to break down is nil, so thats even more thirft.

Fuel economy

I average about 28 mpg, which is great for a mid size sedan.

Insurance cost

Insurance is low for a 22 years old(550-6 months), car is still valued at approxmately 14000 dealer retail.

Ride smoothness

Exceptionally smooth acceleration. Relatively smooth ride.

Why Not the 2005 Honda Accord?

Safety & braking

Brakes overheat sometimes too prematurely, 3.5-4 star driver side impact rating. Relatively thin Sheet metal and plastic reinforcement.

Exterior styling

Looks like something only a soccer mom can appreciate, for the most part.


While responsive, the handling offers no feedback and kind of keeps you guessing if the fwd tires are slipping or not.

Feature availability

The only one is AT.

Powertrain performance

While having exceptionally smooth accel, perhaps a by product is that power is simply not there with added heft to the car.
