Introduction

All in all, if I could get rid of my Accord, I would. I find this car not to be up to the hype in terms of quality that I was led to believe it was. To replace the parts I had to replace before 60,000 miles, no excuse for it.

Why the 2006 Honda Accord?

Fuel economy

The fuel economy was very good considering the stop & go traffic of Phoenix as well as using the A/C extensively in the summer.

Front seat support & comfort

The seats were very comfortable. Lots of lateral support and for the long drive to the west valley of Phoenix to see my parents, the seats did not let me down.

Why Not the 2006 Honda Accord?

Reliability & durability

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.

Reliability & durability

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.
