2007 Honda Accord Review:
I bought mine in April 2010 as a CPO vehicle from a Honda dealer. Overall it's a basic family sedan with a little bit of sports sedan DNA, as though its grandmother slept with a BMW. It's definitely more nimble and fun to drive than a Camry. The engine has good power and emits a nice growl at high RPM. Add in good gas mileage (about 28 in mixed driving), and you have a pretty good overall package.
There are problems, however. The body rattles on bumpy roads, although most other cars do that as well. Like most Hondas, there is relatively more road and engine noise than other cars. My Mennonite edition VP Automatic has a short list of standard features- it has a cheap tinny sounding radio and lacks variable intermittent wipers, power mirrors, and adjustable lumbar seats, although it does have AC and cruise control.
The car has not been totally reliable. The heat shield that protects the catalytic converter fell off on a busy highway. The repair was not covered by warranty and the dealer charged over $200 to fix it. Also, every time I take it in for an oil change the dealer hits me up for $200-$300 worth of "scheduled maintenance". It has not been an inexpensive car to own. I have had no problems with the brakes or transmission.
Overall I'd say Honda is on a downward trajectory. The newer cars are not as good as the old ones, and I don't know if I'd buy another one. I'm also not happy with the way the Honda dealers have treated me.
