Honda Accord Ratings, Reviews and Analysis

It's no secret. Modern vehicles are more reliable than ever, thanks to industry-wide quality processes that are more or less universally applied across all auto manufacturers. Though quality surveys differ in the specifics, most present the same clear trend: the gap between the best- and worst-performing vehicles is much narrower than it ever has been. How, then, does the Honda Accord hold onto its reputation as a default choice among midsize sedans?

As reliability becomes less of a differentiator between competing midsize sedans, savvy car shoppers are changing their focus. Fuel efficiency, in-car connectivity and interior appointments are more important than ever among shoppers seeking maximum value. In each of these areas, the once-trailblazing Accord finds itself squarely mid-pack. Subtract older Accords' visceral charm, and factor in the current vehicle's pedigreed pricetag. It's a formula that could forecast a fall from grace for the Honda Accord -- especially if the competition maintains its half-step lead.

Great with low mileage

Well we live deep in the woods where no one plows and it did get us out in the winter time so that is a plus. It is just a front wheel drive, we did however get new season tires on it.

Love this car!! Hope it lasts

It is a bit low to the ground to get into and out of. I like that I can still get parts for it, even after all these years. As mentioned earlier, it rides exceptionally well due to the double-wishbone suspension.

Great, Will keep it til it dies

It is so reliable and great on gas mileage. The car is 17 years old and still gets 40 miles to the gallon on the highway and I average about 32 around town. It drives just as good as the day I bought it.

Great Reliable Car!

The auxilery adapter is in the wrong location. It should be moved to a reachable spot maybe under the radio or under the air condition controls. Right now it's in the center console and it's hard to reach the cords that need to connect to my phone.

Recall Notices

1998 Honda Accord (1/17/2020)

Campaign Number: 20V026000
Component Name: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:DRIVER SIDE INFLATOR MODULE
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Description: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 1997-1998 Acura 2.2CL, 1998-1999 Acura 2.3CL, 1997-1999 Acura 3.0CL, 2001 Acura 3.2CL and Acura MDX, 1998-2000 Honda Accord Coupe, Accord Sedan, Civic Sedan, Odyssey and Acura 3.5RL, 1999-2000 Acura 3.2TL, 1996-2000 Civic Coupe, 1997-2000 CR-V, 1997-1998 EV Plus, and 1998-1999 Isuzu Oasis vehicles. These vehicles were equipped with Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators (NADI) and do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant. Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the air bag cushion to underinflate.
Defect: In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, an inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants. An underinflated air bag cushion may not properly protect the occupant. These scenarios increase the risk of serious injury or death.
Corrective Action: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag inflator with an inflator of a different design, when the replacement parts become available. Owners will be notified of the issue beginning March 9, 2020. A second letter will be mailed once remedy parts become available. Owners may contact American Honda's Customer Support & Campaign Center at 1-888-234-2138 or Isuzu customer service at 1-800-255-6727.
