2014 Honda Accord Coupe - Owner Review

Recommended Posts

Nice review @adil 

I have worked for Honda for nearly 4 years and the Honda accord is a beauty and a beast 2 in 1 combo depending on what you require out of it. Tires are a issue with all Honda cars as the design pattern causes humming sound when driven and also long storage of the vehicles before pdi and delivery to the customer and can be sorted out initially free of cost by the dealer itself saving you another 2000dhs to spend more on the vehicle. Regarding the drive and comfort this vehicle is better than many other expensive cars seen on road today. Only draw back is that this is a Japanese vehicle built in America or thailand for that matter due to cost cutting and conversion rate to uae dhs which lowers the value of the vehicle. All the best with your vehicle and hope to see some mods on it in the future.

Nice car, nice review, but the thought of spending over 100k on a Honda that isn't a NSX makes my eyes water. What made you choose this over a RWD or AWD V8?

My thoughts exactly.It will be a cold day in hell when I spend that kind of money on a Honda Accord or Civic!

P.S : I hate the new NSX! Just thought I put it out there.

I had this two door accord for over a year when I was young and it was really a sporty sedan that you cannot get required space and luxury in any other fast cars. Nice review adil bhai.

Great review... The latest Accord is a great car.. However there is only one reason why I wouldn't buy one. It is primarily bought and driven by Cocks..

Im driving this car since 3 years now and I have saved quite a lot of money for long time to upograde my civic to 2 door accord - my dream car. Although it might not sound very fancy to the luxurious segment car owner but i belive for the common mass this is a top end car we can afford and having a coup is an added luxury.

Price: 130,000 AED (when new in 2014)

Bought for: 105,000 AED (In 2015)

Although Honda Accord is a top choice for families, but many opting for serious upgrade from current entry level sedan chooses the Accord. It's 2 door coupe is among the most sportier option available from Honda with a very capable and responsive engine. I have never felt short of power when I really need to push this car for limits from zero stand still. For the great styling and road presence i can confidently say that it is the best looking japanese car in town. I hear that earlier than 2012 model gear was an issue, but this model so far has no issues on the cvt gearing and runs and drive perfect. I have completed almost 60,000 kms on this car and have not regretted this buy even for one day or one hour, it is the best thing I have done so far as im in love with this car, reliability, looks, performance, handling, boot space, fuel economy. ECO mode is good for highway to get good fuel mileage, if you use that in city car is less responsive and in case you hit throttle hard then car will jitter a bit to switch of econ and comes back to original 3.5 liter response.

The electronic adjustments could be more user friendly. I'm not an electronics person and don't care otherwise, but the system can be quirky. Mechanically, no complaints so far, haven't been in for anything more than routine maintenance and a recall regarding the battery sensor. I will highly advise changing out the factory tires as soon as you can because you'll be replacing them by 30,000 kms anyway. Car is perfectly roomy for 5 adults...plenty of leg room in the rear seating. Trunk is roomy, but entry could be wider.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this vehicle to friends and family, and Hondas in general. Can't go wrong!

Two of the best video reviews I searched to add more value for next buyer.

 

 

Yes Its a 2 In One Beauty And The Beast. Parts as you mentioned are expensive even the surplus ones. Honda is Honda with all the Pros and Cons. Nice Drive through Out
