Well I had an 07 Civic EX Sedan less than a year ago and traded it in for a 08 Accord sedan. I got a great deal and wasn't upside down on it (thanks to the gas crisis they wanted my used civic bad). Well now not even a year later the Accord is getting traded in tomorrow. I don't hate the car but man did Honda ever drop the ball with this version. The seats are really uncomfortable even with short distances, there is a lot of road noise, and I think I can count over a dozen rattles since I drove it off the lot. I originally wanted to trade up to the Accord for the kids so I would have more room. The civic worked fine with two car seats but I figured the extra room would help. What I found out was that 90% of the time my wife and I drive the SUV around with the kids while the accord stayed home. The road noise is not horrible but no previous accords had it this bad. I know the civic has some noise also but it was far more tolerable in the long run. The Accord is simply to big and literally dwarfs the previous generation accord (and that's not a good thing at least for me). It's not a boat but it feels that way at times when you drive it. The car simply doesn't drive as smooth as my old Civic. I am hopefully going to break even on my loan tomorrow which is great considering I have only had it for 8 months. I will then be back in the Civic fold hopefully. I think I wrote to much .
