Honda is the Best

by Ken from Jasper Texas | October 21, 2019

This is my fourth Honda and the best one I have owned so far. It rides better and gets fantastic gas mileage even better than my two Civics!

Most reliable car I’ve owned.

Purchased new and have loved this car, it’s been a joy to drive. Plenty of space in front and rear seats. Smooth ride with lots of trunk space. Gets great gas mileage.

Not for big guys.

The Honda Accord is a nice car for average size persons. I am 6’6 and wife is 6’ we found it very uncomfortable. The performance was lacking. No zip to it.

2017 Honda Accord Overview


The 2017 Honda Accord is a popular midsize family car that comes as a sedan or coupe. It competes with the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, and Mazda Mazda5. A more fuel efficient hybrid version of the Accord sedan makes its return after a year hiatus. The Accord Hybrid will be covered in a separate overview.

The sedan version has five available trims: the LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, EX, and EX-L.

The coupe version has five available trims as well: the LX-S, EX, EX-L, EX-L V-6, and Touring.

Last year, the Accord sedan underwent a mid-cycle refresh, which included a chrome shield on the front grille, a sporty fascia, and chiseled front- and rear-ends. The new Sport Special Edition trim comes with larger 19-inch wheels, LED fog lights, and special badging. The coupe version has a more aggressive appearance than its sedan counterpart. It has larger, dynamic air scoops at the front- and rear-ends. Available features include a sport grille, underbody kit, heated side mirrors, turn signal indicator mirrors, a rear spoiler, and a dual-pipe exhaust system.

The Accord is powered by a standard 185-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Sport and Sport Special Edition trims are tuned to make 189-hp with the same engine and the CVT. A powerful 278-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission is also available for the coupe version. Fuel economy for the regular 4-cylinder/manual model is an EPA-estimated 23/32 mpg city/highway. It increases to a 27/36 mpg rating for the 4-cylinder/CVT model, but slightly dips to a 26/34 mpg rating for the Sport and Sport Special Edition trims. The V-6/automatic model earned a 21/33 mpg rating, while the V-6/manual model has a rating of 18/28 mpg.

Inside, the Accord has a standard black cloth interior or available black leather-trim seating. The new Sport Special Edition comes with unique red-stitched, black leather seating. The center console features a standard audio system, which includes CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to an advanced multimedia system that includes a 7-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, a satellite radio, and a premium audio system. Standard features include a dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, and power windows/locks. Power/heated front seats, heated rear seats, split-folding rear seats, push-button start, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, and aluminum pedals are optional.

The Accord earned a full 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available features include lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision mitigation system, and automatic emergency braking.
