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.

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.

"bought used,5 years ago with 77K miles, now at 116K. No mechanical problems, timing belt/water pump service pricey. 20 city 26 highway, smooooothe power, could use 5 speed trans. Seats comfy, back seat for kids only in coupe. Still has original spark plugs, shocks. exhaust.Uses no oil between changes. Only strange thing, rear pads have been changed more often than fronts."

"It's a commuter vehicle that doesn't feel like one. The V6 is a must, as it adds longevity and power. The only upgrade worth getting is a Bluetooth kit to pair your phone with the on board sound system. So long as you do the maintenance on time, and don't go cheap, it will easily go 250k before wearing out. I have no intention of giving up this car, it's virtually bullet proof reliable."

"I have over 140,000 miles on my Accord and it still runs great. I have never done anything other than regular maintenance. I change the oil regularly, keep fluid levels high, get the brakes done when needed and keep good tires on the car. I was recently looking at new cars and after a while I didn't see the point. Of course it doesn't have the electronic plug ins or bluetooth or rear carmera. How did we ever live without that. :)"

"I have the EX-L which has the V6 and the Navigation system. Has close to 270,000 miles and is still running strong. Car is tank like in the snow due to the V6 which is heavier than the 4 cylinder models. Has been a very good car"
