2008 Honda Accord Review – TTAC

2008-honda-accord-coupe-redTTAC reviews the 2008 Honda Accord EX-L Coupe and comes away less than amazed – ‘The EX-L coupe is a conflicted vehicle. It’s got a powerful engine with a snick-happy transmission mated to an average suspension. It’s got all the appearance of a luxury vehicle, with none of the quiet and little of the luxuriousness. It’s fun to drive, but not REALLY fun.

Yes, the EX-L’s a strange offering, given Honda aspirations for the Accord as the nü full-size family sedan. With a sport-tuned suspension, SH-AWD and a few more toys, the EX-L would blow its competitors into the weeds. As it is, the EX-L is… um… I’m sorry. What were we talking about?’

For the record, I think that an Accord with AWD ( perhaps the Accord SI ) could be a truly interesting vehicle.  However, it’s unlikely that Honda will do something as fantastic as that for the foreseeable future.

Honda Accord.
