2010 Honda Accord Review

The 2010 Honda Accord has nimble handling and a roomy, well-made interior. It ranks in the middle of the highly competitive midsize car class, however, because its safety and reliability scores – while good – don’t keep pace with those of class leaders.

Pros & Cons

  • Upscale, roomy cabin
  • Good performance overall
  • Confusing navigation system
  • Cluttered center stack
  • Subpar trunk space

2010 Honda Accord Overview

Is the 2010 Honda Accord a Good Used Car?

The 2010 Honda Accord is a good midsize car. It has one of the nicest interiors in the class, with its sleek design and first-rate materials. The Accord also has agile handling that allows you to take winding roads aggressively, unlike most rival vehicles that prioritize comfort above all else. However, there are some notable drawbacks to the 2010 Accord. Its trunk is smaller than average for the class, and if the model you’re considering buying has the optional navigation system, be aware that the knob controlling the system is difficult to use.

How Much Does the 2010 Honda Accord Cost to Own?

The 2010 Honda Accord’s five-year estimated costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs come to nearly $25,440. These estimated expenses are a few thousand dollars lower for sedans like the 2010 Toyota Camry and 2010 Hyundai Sonata.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Honda Accord?

If a low price is at the top of your mind, you’ll certainly want to choose the 2010 Accord over the 2019 Honda Accord, which has a starting price of $23,720. That’s more than double the average price of a 2010 model. Nonetheless, the 2019 model has a lot to offer. It features a lighter body, a lower stance, and an improved chassis. It features a turbocharged engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Accord’s long list of advanced standard safety features is perhaps the most notable. It includes Traffic Sign Recognition, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and more.

Which Used Honda Accord Model Is Right for Me?

The 2010 Accord has two body styles (sedan and coupe). The Accord sedan has three major trims: LX, EX, and EX V-6. There are also three sub-trim levels – LX-P, EX-L, EX-L V-6 – that add sportier styling elements.

The base Honda Accord LX sedan has power windows and door locks, cruise control, keyless entry, and a six-speaker stereo with auxiliary input. This trim will suit most shoppers fine, but shoppers who want more should check out the Honda Accord EX trim. It features a slightly stronger engine, a moonroof, heated side mirrors, driver’s seat power lumbar support, and upgraded interior materials that include active noise cancellation to keep the cabin quiet.

The Honda Accord EX V-6 has the strongest engine in the lineup, so it’s the best trim for everyday highway commuters. It also comes with sport-inspired design elements, but there are few notable additional standard features.

Certified Pre-Owned Honda Accord Warranty

Honda offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale’s date. Honda vehicles that earn CPO status see the original new-car limited powertrain warranty extended to seven years or 100,000 miles, and it extends the new-car non-powertrain warranty to four years or 48,000 miles. If the CPO Honda you purchase is more than four years old or has more than 48,000 miles, you’ll receive a one-year/12,000-mile non-powertrain limited warranty. Honda CPO vehicles must pass a 182-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

Honda’s CPO program offers some of the best benefits and services compared to those of most competing brands. However, Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC may provide a few more CPO program benefits, based on our analysis.

2010 Honda Accord Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2010 Honda Accord or 2010 Toyota Camry?

The 2010 Toyota Camry and 2010 Honda Accord both offer roomy seats and reliability ratings that are about average for the class. However, that’s where the similarities end. The Camry is tuned for comfort, but its cabin has a bland look and low-rent materials. The Accord is sportier and more stylish. It offers a longer list of options than the Camry, including a coupe model, three engines, and three transmissions.

Which Is Better: 2010 Honda Accord or 2010 Nissan Altima?

If you like the 2010 Honda Accord’s agile handling, you’ll appreciate the 2010 Nissan Altima. Both cars are fun to drive. Like the Accord, the Altima is available in coupe and sedan body styles that have sporty styling to match their athletic driving dynamics. Both cars also have similar predicted reliability ratings, but the Accord has a slightly higher safety score and a nicer interior. The Altima offers a few features the Accord doesn’t, including push-button start, a USB port, and a rearview camera. Both vehicles are solid choices in the midsize car class.

2010 Honda Accord Performance

How Does the 2010 Honda Accord Drive?

The front-wheel-drive Accord is available with three engines for 2017: two four-cylinders and a V6. The base four-cylinder engine generates 177 horsepower and gives the Accord modest acceleration.

The four-cylinder engines can be paired with a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic. The V6-powered Accord coupes are available with a six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic. On the road, the Accord has tight cornering, making it quite sporty compared to most competing sedans that put the focus on ride comfort.

The EPA estimates that the base 2010 Accord with the automatic transmission returns 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. That’s about average for the class.

The sedan offers plenty of legroom and hip room in both the front and back seats, and the rear seats are particularly spacious for a midsize car.

The Accord’s cluttered center stack makes it hard to find and use some buttons. Additionally, the available navigation system has a dashboard-mounted rotary knob, which can be difficult to use compared to a touch screen.
