Used Honda Accord Tourer (2003 - 2008) Review

The advert said 'isn't it nice when things just work?', and the Accord does just that. Honda has mixed mix business with pleasure and moved the Accord closer to exec spec that's sharp enough to impress clients but sporty enough to please you.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4.5 out of 5

The advert said 'isn't it nice when things just work?', and the Accord does just that. Honda has mixed mix business with pleasure and moved the Accord closer to exec spec that's sharp enough to impress clients but sporty enough to please you. It's certainly a quality package, not one that comes cheap but one that is well-specced and expertly screwed together.

But, executive aspirations take away some of the versatility expected in this sector (no hatchback) and it's a bit small compared to rivals. The diesel engine impresses even the harshest oil-burning critic.

What owners say...

 I used to think reliability was the best thing about Honda. It certainly isn't too roomy like competitors. Fuel economy is good but offset by large repair bills.

 The car is very spacious and comfortable to drive. Both front seats have electric adjustments, which include moving the seat back and forward, tilting forward and backwards and adjusting the back.

 Load space is okay but certainly no Vauxhall Omega estate. The loadspace is not very tall and the roofline curves in at the sides reducing space. Not the most practical estate.
