Hondas are among the slowest depreciating cars so residual values should prove strong.

Build Quality

Build quality is excellent and is certainly in the same class as its German rivals. As we have come to expect from Honda reliability is legendary and is supported with a 3-year/90,000 mile (whichever comes first) mechanical warranty.

The 2005 J.D. Power and Associates Automotive Customer Satisfaction Study places Honda in third place overall showing that Honda customers are among the most satisfied in the car industry. For more information [ click here ]

Value For Money

The Accord 2.2 i-CTDi Executive is good value for money with impressive levels of standard equipment. Hondas are among the slowest depreciating cars so residual values should prove strong.

Honda have recently introduced Honda Happiness a fixed price repair programme showing its commitment to owners of Honda models which are more than three years old. For more information

Conclusion

As Honda's TV advert says 'hate something, change something, make something better' and with the new Accord diesel Honda have done just that creating a class leading diesel engine which is quiet, refined, clean and fuel efficient.

The new Honda Accord diesel is beautifully designed, superb to drive, reassuringly reliable and retains high residual values. Honda have yet again made the 'ordinary, extraordinary'.
