Price or payments
I received a $3500 incentive for buying a "left-over" car. I purchased a new 2006 Accord in Jan/2007.
Impressive power from the 3.0 V6. Torque is also strong, particularly over 4000RPM. Fairly smooth engine, you need to watch your speed sometimes.
I have achieved about 26MPG in 85% city driving and about 32MPG in 85% highway. Quite good for a car with a six cylinder engine
Interior materials are of the soft touch variety. The cabin is ergonomically designed, with everything where you would expect it to be
Front seat support & comfort
The front seats have good side bolstering for spirited driving. They are also comfortable for long trips.
Materials & workmanship
I have had numerous quality control issues with this vehicle. Everything from scratched glass to loose heatshields and loose seat rails. Also some interior materials are cheap, especially considering this car costs over in $36,000 Canadian Dollars (new)
Reliability & durability
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
Safety & braking
The braking could not be worse in this car. When you test drive it, they feel great. However, after a few months you start to realize where Honda saved money.
Excessive brake judder at high speeds and brake fade are just two complaints out of possibly 4
Audio & nav systems
The audio system sounds alright with the windows rolled up, however, not when they are down. The system has a hard time keeping up with wind noise at city cruising speeds. Also, the CD changer has a tendancy to skip occasionally - even on non-copied CDs
