Even the sound of the door closing is by design. Our doors speak well of the rest of our car. But their tight, solid sound is no accident. Before we begin building the car, we engineer the best way to assemble it. Piece by piece. Doors, trunk and hood fit the body with close tolerances all around.We align hinges and latches to work freely. Window glass is held snug. And runs in the window channels smoothly. Triple rubber door seals help reduce outside sounds and wind noise.We've improved the insulation throughout the car. The Honda Accord 4-Door Sedan is quieter, roomier and more comfortable.You'll find it rides and handles better. And while its many luxurious features are impressive, they are standard equipment. Like cruise control and variable-assist power steering, to name but two. Honda's simple philosophy of building cars to work the way they were designed to work has made Honda number one in owner loyalty among all leading import cars. It has helped Honda cars retain a high resale value, among the best in the automotive industry. You can fully appreciate how a Honda is made the next time you're in a Honda showroom. After you kick the tires, listen to the doors. M EIE *Source: R. L .Polk and Co.1981model yearNew CarBuyerAnalysis. ©1982American Honda Motor Co.,Inc. We m ake it simple.
