The history of the Honda Accord began in 1976. People came to love it for having a four-door sedan style.
A little over a decade later, the Accord was one of the best-selling cars in the US.
Oh, undoubtedly, various styles emerged over the years, including those with a hatchback, coupe, and wagon, but there is no question that people love their Honda Accord, including you!
It doesn’t matter when your car was manufactured, there are always to give it a little more sparkle and functionality.
So let’s take a look at the 7 best accessories for Honda Accords:
1. Pet-Friendly Products
If you own a dog who loves to ride in your Accord, you have probably already dealt with muddy paws, scratch marks, and hair everywhere.
After Fido’s adventure on the road, you whip out the hand vac with an extension cord and do your best to clean things up. Pet hair is like glitter; it goes everywhere.
A canine cover for your seats reduces your workload tremendously and protects your upholstery. They come in styles suitable to all seats in your car. Make sure you get the right size for your year, make, and model.
Some covers include safety restraints, so your sweet Fifi doesn’t crawl into your lap and try to drive! Other covers have a length that goes to your flooring. Most offer water repellency in case of drooling or accidents on those long road trips. Tip: look for covers that you can machine wash.
Canine covers come with suitable attachments, so they stay in place securely. They’re not overly difficult to install. Most importantly, you get a lot of value for your money.
2. Dashboard Covers
If you got a basic model of the Accord, your dashboard probably looks kinda bland. It doesn’t have to be that way.
A Dashboard cover leaves all your vents and trays accessible. They’re durable, stretch side-to-side, and decrease windshield glare.
Most Dashboard Covers do not shrink or fade. They protect your dashboard from sun damage and come in enough colors so you can find the exact one you want. Hey, make it an accent piece! Interior decorating was never easier.
Tip: consider combining a dashboard cover with an armrest protector to match. They give you more comfort. An armrest protector is durable and resists stains, scuffs, and pet claws (hey, add it to your canine cover purchase!).
3. Exhaust Upgrades
If you want a little sporty flair, an exhaust upgrade could be the perfect accessory for your Honda Accord.
There are different models from which to choose, so the upgrade fits your style. An exhaust system looks sharp and changes the sound of your car.
Some models increase horsepower and torque, which in turn improves your gas mileage.
Want your Accord “pussycat” to roar? An exhaust upgrade is your answer. Every state allows system changes, but you are strongly advised to reach out to your dealership for factory warranty products.
Tip: You can create an exterior theme for your Honda Accord by adding a chrome bumper trim that matches your exhaust upgrade. You can get pleasing styles for your rear deck, trunk lid, and tailgate. Bumper designs ensure they match your car in every way.
4. Front End Protection
There are all-weather “bras” for the front-end of your car. You can find these outfits in a perfect size to fit your vehicle.
They are straightforward to install and give way to your license plate, fog lights, etc.
The front of your Accord is the first line of impact on less-than-perfect roads. Having front end protection means you keep insects, road debris, and small rocks soundly away from your paint job. They look pretty snazzy too!
5. Side Window Sun Protection
If you want to protect your interior and keep people in your Accord more comfortable, side window sun protection is an ideal choice. The mesh shades reduce how much heat and UV rays come into the car.
Nonetheless, people can see OUT of the window. Better still, you can remove them when you wish.
6. Trunk Tray or Mat
The carpets are similar. They look richer than a tray while still providing protection. The additional benefit of a trunk carpet is that it insulates against some sound.
7. Weather-Resistant Floor Liners
Weather-resistant floor liners make a great addition to your trunk tray or mat. If you have ever gotten a stain on your Accord’s carpet, you know some can be quite stubborn.
When you have a well-fit floor mat, that coffee and snow salt don’t stand a chance. Floor liners also protect your car against the smells created by oil, gas, and moisture build-up in your carpets.
Your floor liner should have a raised ridge that fits snugly with the door jamb. You don’t want the mat slipping and sliding. And that ridge is a substantial barrier against larger spills. When they get dirty, hose them off, let them dry, and put them back in.
If you are worried about color, don’t. You can find weather-resistant floor liners for your Honda Accord in may complimentary hues.
These are only a few examples of some of the best accessories for your Honda Accord.
Shop around. Ask your dealer for information on approved parts and additions, so you don’t void any warranty.
Maybe consider upgrading your stereo system. Depending on the year of your car, you might be able to add a television, cd player, or gaming system for the kids. For yourself? How about a navigation center. There’s nothing worse than being lost without a cell phone signal.
Think about your lifestyle and make a wish list for your Honda. Get those accessories as your budget allows. It’s enjoyable to shop for your car.
