The well-rounded, capable, and roomy Accord is now our top-rated affordable family sedan. The new 2.4-liter four-cylinder and unobtrusive CVT got an impressive 30 mpg overall. We got a very good 26 mpg with the 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic. Handling is agile and the ride is supple. The cabin is comfortable, but the rear bench is snug for three. A backup camera is standard. Top-trim models have a fussy radio.

Quiet, comfortable, quick acceleration, and quality built by Houston Car Guy on 11/05/2012. Trim: 2013 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan CVT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This car is very quiet and has great gas mileage. We got the EX-L I4 CVT sedan 2 weeks ago and took it for a road trip to a city 200 miles away last weekend. So far we put about 750 miles on the car and it performed as well as we had hoped for. I am surprised by some reviewers about the quality of this car (especially about the oil leak or cheap interior comments) because they are simply not true. The gas mileage we got from the 2013 Accord is very close to the spec (unlike the Kia or Hyundai both have recently be caught cheating on their mileage reporting).
Cons: No built-in garage door opener on the EX-L??? Not a deal breaker for us but still.
Overall review: Definitely one of the best built cars in the mid-size segment
