"Bought this car when it came off lease in early 2005 with 46k on it. Have kept the maintenance current and have never had a problem. Replaced the AC compressor in 2013 and valve cover gasket in 2014. Gets a solid 29-30 highway 23-25 city. My only complaint has been the delamination of the gorgeous Noble Pearl Green paint. I used to use a black leather bra on this car because of all the highway miles I used to drive. Still use the cover for the leading edge of the hood. I would recommend this year and model to anyone who needs economic at, reliable preowned car!"

"very reliable and maintenance costs have been minimal over the 10.5 years I have had this car. Just normal costs - tires, oil changes. My parents have put thousands into their Chevys in the same time period and I have twice the miles on this car."

"I bought this car with just 18 miles on the odometer. 220K miles later it is still purring like the time I first purchased it. I have driven it from Maine to Key West and from Jacksonville, Florida to Los Angeles without any major hiccups. Absolutely love my Accord! I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for reliability."

"This has been a pleasure for the past ten years. No real problems and plenty of performance. The hybrid is more a performance boost (increased horsepower when accelerating) than a mileage benefit. Very well put together car."

"Have owned the car for nine years. Other than scheduled fluid changes and tires I've had to spend $38 for a wearable part. Otherwise, all I've had to do is put gas in it and enjoy driving it."
