Honda Accord Information
Used sedan buyers soon find out why Honda has a best selling car in the Honda Accord. Year after year in remains a best seller, maintaining a high resale value, and placing in many reviewers' Top 10 Best lists. The Accord delivers excellent fuel economy in the 4-cylinder engine versions, a peppy engine, responsive handling, a pleasing exterior design that is slow to date itself, and high marks in the safety department, both with crash test results, and features like side-airbags.
The Accord has spent three decades as a best selling sedan (or coupe) by striving to hit the checkboxes in all areas, from build quality, safety, performance, looks, comfort, and fuel economy. It appeals to both families and commuters looking for daily transportation. There are more comfortable cars. There are competitors with more powerful engines. Other sedans might have flashier designs, but the Accord gets high marks all arounds. This is why it sells so well. This is why it holds its value and ranks high in customer satisfaction.
There is now a crossover (Crosstour) and since 2005 a hybrid version of the Accord. The regular Accord is available as a sedan or coupe and comes in several trim levels including the base LX (sedan only), base LX-S (coupe only), and Sport (sedan only) which is better equipped. If you want luxury, get the EX, the leather-heavy EX-L which is also available with optional navigation equipment. Touring is the most fully loaded trim level.
Used Accords from 2013 to the present are the ninth generation of the car that was first launched in the U.S. in 1982 and slowly grew in size, weight and features with each iteration. Eight generation Accords from 2008-2012 model years are actually larger than the current generation. If you need to connect to a music source, USB connectors were added in 2011. From 2003-2007 the Accord came in three easy to remember trims: DX, LX and EX. Since DX was rather spartan, you might want to confine your search to LX or EX trims.
There are 57,642 used Honda Accords in our used car listings, including the Honda Civic, Honda CR-V and Honda Odyssey. 51% of these vehicles have only one previous owner and 80% have no accident history.
