Vehicle of the week: 2008 Honda Accord EX-L

After we get new cars in they go through a rigorous inspection from our certified mechanic, before going on the lot for sale.  Once they are for sale our employees then drive a new car every week to test it for any further issues before our customers get in them.  This will be a new series for us in which we also talk about the vehicles we are driving and our overall opinion of them.  Up first for the 2008 Honda Accord EX-L in Gainesville, FL Car Dealership.

2008 is the first year Honda rolled out this new body style, and as a friend would say it’s ‘bangin.’  I love the design inside and out.  The curves on the outside give it flare with an up to date look, and inside the Leather, Sunroof, and Stereo are sleek.  Because this is the EX-L model it comes with upgraded features like the 3.5 i-vtech VCM V6 engine which has a ton of power to get you up to speed very quickly.  At the same time it also comes with decent fuel efficiency as Honda’s are known for at 19 city and 29 highway mpg.   Other options in the EX-L model are heated seats, sunroof, steering wheel controls, and alloy wheels.

Here’s a picture so you can see the uniqueness of this 2008 Honda Accord:

Just in: 2008 Honda Accord EX-L Ocala, FL. Come in today at our Gainesville, FL Car Dealership. Serving Ocala, Lake City, Alachua FL areas.

Driving wise it’s a dream.  Super smooth through all gears.  Very quite engine and the seats curve around you to hold you firmly in place.  All windows roll down, auxillary output works, lights, horn, brakes, everything is perfect.  The one and only thing I will knock it for is the tight suspension.  I asked several other owners of a 2008 Honda Accord and mechanics about it and they said it’s the way the car was designed.  It is very similar to a sports car suspension.

Overall I’d give this Honda Accord a 9.5 out of 10 and definitely recommend this to everyone who is looking for a mid size vehicle.  Honda‘s are one of the best for a reason so come in to our Car Dealership in Gainesville, FL for a test drive!
