2007 Honda Accord Review

By

Despite having a sales volume far lower than its sedan sibling, Honda continues to polish and improve the Accord Coupe to make it one of the most desirable two-doors on the road. Not that we're complaining, we love this car. Its sleek exterior gives the appearance of something much more expensive and its lush interior not only pampers its occupants, but can accommodate four adults in comfort. Buyers can opt for a peppy and frugal four-cylinder engine or a potent V6, and both can be had with either a manual or automatic transmission. Of course, like all Honda products, among the Accord Coupe's most endearing attributes are its bullet-proof repair history and unbeatable resale value.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you like the feeling of a powerful coupe that can comfortably seat four adults, you'll like the Accord. The six-speed manual is a rarity in this class.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a flashy exterior with long hood scoops and side louvers, this is not the coupe for you. Rear-seat passengers may not enjoy climbing in and out through the narrow front seat opening.

What's Significant About This Car?

No major changes for 2007.

Driving the Accord

Driving Impressions The Accord's handling is nothing short of brilliant, especially for a front-wheel-drive car. Racing through winding back roads or opening the Accord up on a long stretch of empty highway,...

the coupe will be completely in its element. Only when passing at high speeds or charging up a steep grade does the 166-horsepower four-cylinder fall short.

If you can swing the extra cash, the 3.0-liter V6 really is the way to go. Rated at 244 horsepower, the V6 moves the Accord with such authority you'll think you've entered into BMW territory. V6 models come standard with a close-ratio six-speed manual that feels terrific, with quick precise throws and no trace of rubbery or notchy linkage.
Favorite Features

Smooth Shifter
The smooth, short throws of the six-speed manual are addicting.

Comfortable Seats
Wide bucket seats with perfectly placed side bolsters feel terrific on long drives.

Interior

The Accord Coupe shares its dash and brilliant blue instrument lighting with the Accord Sedan. The differences are subtle but definitely welcome. Take, for example, the coupe's center console where, on V6 models, a short-throw six-speed manual shifter awaits the driver. The Accord Coupe's instruments sit up higher and the driver and passenger seats are lower than in the Accord Sedan. Interior room is good, but rear-seat entry and exit can be a bit of a climb. A folding rear seat helps expand the already generous trunk space.

Exterior

The Accord Coupe's exterior is very clean, using the high angle of the belt line and trunk to form its wedge-like profile. The flush-fitting wrap-around headlamps punctuate a new chrome grille and front air dam design. The tolerances between parts are so tight it looks as if the plastic tail and headlamp assemblies are actually part of the metal body panels.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The Accord Coupe LX is equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a five-speed manual transmission, 16-inch alloy wheels, dual power mirrors, auto-off headlamps, remote keyless entry, manual height-adjustable driver's seat, air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, AM/FM stereo with CD and six speakers, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, front side-impact airbags, front and rear head-curtain airbags, rear-seat pass-through and remote trunk release.

Optional Equipment

Options are tied directly to trim level, so if you want a power moonroof, for example, you have to order the EX model. Available equipment includes heated leather seats, power driver and passenger seats, voice-activated navigation, premium audio, driver's seat adjustable lumbar and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Under the Hood

The Accord's standard 2.4-liter engine is one of the few four-cylinders we'd be perfectly content to keep as is. It has plenty of zip, runs smooth as an ice skating rink and delivers impressive fuel economy figures. Best of all, Honda makes the four-cylinder available in both the LX and EX trims, so you don't have to compromise economy for luxury. If you feel the need for speed, the V6 is an excellent choice. Like the four, it offers excellent power, silky-smooth operation and even earns an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle rating. The only drawback we can think of against getting the V6 is its added cost.

"I bought my Honda accord in 04, the best car by far. I have owned Ford's, Nissan's, Chevrolet's, They just don't compare AT ALL. I have put over 150,00 highway miles, and she is still ready for more. A great travel car so smooth and hugs the road and turns. I am a grandma of 6 and my "Angel" car has seen all 6 and has been through lots of car seats. with leather seats it's not a problem. The only time she didn't start was when her battery went out. The best reliable car on the planet. My dogs love the window's that go down when I unlock the doors. love my Honda"

"My 2006 Accord has never needed any additional service other than the mileage checks (brakes, etc.). It's styling is classic--it looks the new cars coming out now. You can't tell that it is 8 years old."

"I drive pretty much all day long & this car has been a real workhorse while being a nicely appointed, comfortable ride. This is my third Honda, having owned an earlier model Accord & a Prelude. I am beginning to look into getting yet another Accord. This one still has a lot to give but would like to sell while it is in fairly good shape rather than run it until it dies. I have toyed with getting something other than a Honda but can't sacrifice the high mileage reliability I have come to expect."

"Driven off the showroom floor Summer 2005, this car has had but 5 repairs in almost 140,000 miles. Three (3) were under warranty: window regulator(s) (2), engine code thrown for coolant sensor glitch. I did pay for a VTEC oil pressure fitting leak at 115,000 miles. I also paid to have the factory transmission goo replaced with GMSFM. The difficult shift to 3rd gear vanished (and has never returned)! I routinely get in the high 30's on the Interstate at 2200 RPM in 6th. Around town (65% expressway) average is 25-27. The leather interior has no cracks, the windshield remains unmarred and the paint ain't bad at all. Actually white becomes this car: my friends say it looks like a new vehicle. I recently replaced my old 300,000 engine miles diesel pickup with a diesel wagon. I thought about trading in the Honda (but I just could not do it). I sold the little VW pickup to a restoration shop; they in turn got 12 grand for it. No complaints."
