When you are buying a car, you’re making an investment, and if you’re looking at a new sedan, asking a question like “Is the Kia Optima Reliable?” is a pretty good place to start. When we talk about reliability here at Detroit Area Honda Dealers, one vehicle comes to mind for us: the Accord.
As an added bonus to the reliability of the vehicle, the 2013 Honda Accord also features a slew of new features and technology to make driving it even more fun, letting you stay connected while behind the wheel.
US News Praises Accord Reliability
One thing that makes us particularly proud to work with Honda vehicles is their reputation for reliability, and that is why we are happy to say that US News, who use the J.D. Power and Associates ranking system, have given the 2013 Honda Accord a reliability rating that places it “better than most” competing vehicles.
Where does the 2013 Optima stand, then? Well, it’s not so fortunate, coming in at “about average.” So if you’re wanting to drive a vehicle that experts have rated as “better than most” when it comes to its reliability, you’re going to want the Accord.
Of course, there are so many other reasons to choose the Accord over the Optima, including all of those standard features we mentioned before. The amenities you’ll find on the entry-level Accord LX include:
- Automatic climate control
- Rearview camera display
- 8-inch touchscreen interface
- and more
And you won’t find these on the basic Optima without upgrading.
Test Drive a Honda Accord Today
While we don’t think the numbers are lying, you need to see the 2013 Honda Accord for yourself before making that decision. Visit a Detroit Area Honda Dealer and take the Accord for a test drive.
Even if the Accord isn’t quite to your liking, don’t forget about the Civic and the Crosstour. Both of these models have appealed to Detroit area drivers for some time and are available now.
