The Honda Accord had been around for 28 years in the United States when the 2010 Honda Accord LX model was released. During those near three decades, it was featured on Car and Driver’s 10Best list an impressive 24 times, and received numerous “Car of the Year” awards from websites and magazines such as Drive and Wheels Magazine.
The base 2010 Honda Accord LX model comes standard with everything you’d expect from a more modern car: keyless entry, full power accessories, cruise control, fully adjustable steering wheel, fold-down rear seats and a six-speaker stereo with a single-CD/MP3 player and an auxiliary audio jack. The engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that generates 177 horsepower and 161 pound-feet of torque, and achieves 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway ratings.
There have been hundreds of iterations of the Accord over the years, and though each time it may gain or lose something, one trait of the Honda sedan that remains pertinent is its phenomenal reliability. This reliability—to which it owes its golden reputation—has historically been responsible for above-average consumer satisfaction and for giving the Honda Accord one of the best resale values anywhere.
