Used Honda Accord PA

The used Honda Accord has gained a reputation for being comfortable, roomy, intelligently engineered and easy to drive. Overall, the Accord combines high technology and high quality with everyday economy of operation and keen attention to detail. The Accord was just recently redesigned for the 2008 model year. No changes have occurred since then, though in that initial year Honda was rating the car's engine at a slightly lower (268 hp) output.

Sixth Generation Accord

The sixth-generation Honda Accord is very popular in the used car market. Available from 1998-2002, this model came in coupe or sedan body styles and had either four-cylinder or V6 power. Throughout this generation as Honda didn't make any drastic changes, though cars built after 2000 have expanded safety features. This model boasted the typical Accord attributes and, as a used car, should provide better than average reliability, assuming it's been properly maintained by previous owners. This generation marked the first time that Honda used its VTEC variable valve timing system. A VTEC-equipped four-cylinder engine came with the EX trim level. Accord models from 1995 and upward also had a V6 available. This generation was also the last for the rare Accord wagon.

Seventh Generation Used Accords

Other available used Honda Accords would likely be part of the vehicle's seventh generation, which was sold for the 2003-'07 model years. As with the current model, it was available as a midsize coupe or sedan. Selecting a used Accord from this generation should be rather straightforward. Initially, there were three trim levels: DX, LX and EX. The DX was pretty frugal with features, so the better choice will be the LX or EX. Side and side-curtain airbags were typically optional on all trim levels. The seventh generation Accord used a 160-hp 2.4-liter inline-4 or a 240-hp, 3.0-liter V6 engine. Four-cylinder engines could be had with either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual was available on the V6-powered EX Coupe. In 2005, Honda introduced the Accord Hybrid. However, because of the higher price very few Accord Hybrids were sold. Stability control also debuted this year, as did minor modifications to trim level organization. In reviews at the time, we praised the car for its roomy and stylish interior, tight build quality, smooth ride and good crash test scores. Downsides included tepid handling and mediocre brakes. All said, however, this Accord was an excellent choice for a family sedan or midsize coupe.

2008 Accord Redesign

For 2008, the Honda Accord has been completely redesigned, boasting more safety features, more spacious rear seating for the sedan, and a more powerful engine. The 2008 used Accord comes either as a two-door coupe or four-door sedan with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or 3.5-liter V6 engine. The four-cylinder engines are available in five-speed manual or automatic transmission for both styles of the Accord, while the V6 sedan is only available in five-speed automatic. The V6 coupe is available with a six-speed manual. Cloth upholstery is standard, however EX-L models feature leather seats and a leather-covered steering wheel. Safety is enhanced on all Accords with six standard airbags, including side-impact air bags for front seats and side curtain air bags. Four-wheel disc, antilock brakes, Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, Brake Assist and active front head restraints also come standard.
