2008 Accord Review - ConsRpt

Page 2 of 2  
Edmunds is obviously smoking some good crack... they say the 2008 civic fuel tank is only 8 gallons... Its 50L, so it would be 13.22 US Gall and 11 UK
Gall.

Malibu might rank better than Accord right now, but how will they compare when both models are 4-5 years old? My money is on the Honda - lost too much already on 3- to 4-year-old GMs.

Are you reading a different Consumer reports than I am? I see the Accord received an overall rating of 88, the Altima 85......how is that better? it does mention the Accord gets slightly worse gas mileage than the Altima but that is not the total rating.... Don't get me wrong, I still think the new Accord is just about the ugliest car Honda has produced in recent memory and the Altima is better looking but, in MY opinion I would not buy either of the gas guzzliers cause I like my Civic Hybrid too much to consider either.

One consistent complaint with Hondas is a relatively high amount of tire noise transmitted to the cabin. We notice this on our '03 Accord and I was hoping it would be improved with the '08 redesign, but CR says that tire noise is still a low point.
I think Honda missed the boat by going bigger still with the '08 at a time when fuel economy is so important. Bigger and heavier means a fuel economy sacrifice. Time to stop super-sizing it!
