Other Honda Accord (2003 - 2008) models:

  • Summary

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What does this car say about you?

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Comfortable, quite quick, not that good looking.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    A big no. I bought it for the Honda reliability and it has let me down badly. The things that have gone wrong have not been cheap to repair and could have been deadly, e.g cracked manifold feeding exhaust fumes into the cabin. Cost of parts is ridiculous, much more than my previous Volvo estate.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    BMW or Volvo.
