I own this car - My approximate mileage is 89,000
Pros: "Full size at mid-size price"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Own a 2008 EX-L Sedan with the 4-cylinder engine. This is my second Accord. I had turned in a 2003 EX-L V-6 Coupe with 189,000 miles to purchase this one new.
I obviously drive a lot of miles. Most of the miles are put on over the road. I routinely do a 1200 mile round trip between New Jersey and Michigan. The car has performed flawlessly for me. I just changed the original tires last month and more about concern for snow than necessity. I did have to change the brakes at 30,000, but they have been great since. No other (knock on wood) repairs but oil changes (5,000 mile increments). The seats seem very comfortable, the power is more than adequate and the fuel mileage excellent (up to 32mpg highway at 72-74 mph).
The car is more than large enough for four (I am 6'2" tall) and can carry a lot of bags and golf clubs. I have experienced none of the negative issues mentioned in other reviews, so perhaps there are some quality control issues at the factory.
I will say that I have picked up a lot of paint chips on the leading edge of the hood, but that may be due more to SE Michigan roads than it is to Honda.
Bottom line, this has been a great car and I plan to keep it at least another 100,000 miles."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 700
Pros: "Fun to drive, great on gas, very comfortable"
Cons: "Road noise"
"I had a crossover before this car. I was a little afraid that it would not match the comfort and room I had before. I was wrong. The seating is great with lumbar support on both sides and the seat warmers make it even more comfortable. The trunk space is huge and you can put a lot of larger items in it than you would think. I deliver papers and was able to fit all 500 of them in there this Sunday. WOW.. The ride is very smooth and the steering is well controled. The only thing that bugs me slightly is the road noise, but when you turn up the radio that vanishes. I love the fact it has xm radio, easy to read displays, and daytime running lights. Overall I would recommend this car to anyone who wants a Honda. The fact that it is a EXL makes it a perfect fit for me, I traded comfort for even more comfort. Thanks Honda."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 675
Pros: "Fun to drive, lots of room"
Cons: "Layout of dash a little quirky, but OK."
"I am a former loyal Nissan customer, so I felt kind of strange moving to Honda brand. So far no regrets with the Honda. I was between an Altima and an Accord, with the Accord winning after doing a lot of research. It drives beautifully, seats are very comfortable, trunk is spacious. No regrets so far, and I truly do not expect any."
