The 2013 Honda Accord is one of those vehicles that it is hard to find fault in. However, there are always going to be some consumers who simply don't like a feature, even if others do. Common points that may come up as complaints include:
Ride is firmer than some will prefer.
Some people simply do not like continuously variable transmissions, regardless how efficient they are.
Base audio system is not very powerful.
Top-of-the-line models can be quite pricy.
Some desirable safety features are only available on higher trims, including blind-spot, forward-collision, and lane-departure warning systems.
