We had a 2002 V6 EX-L that we finally sold with 198,000 miles on it.

Was going to buy a 2017 but read that it had wandering issues. Now looking at 2018 2.0T, again EX-L.

Does that still happen on the Gen10 2018s? If it’s fixed, please let me know. If not, please tell me about the problem.

We are in our sixties and the car is for my wife, so I want to know this is taken care of. Thanks for any help you can provide!

I am nearly 80 years and very pleased with my ‘18 Sport 2.0. I owned several Accords, ‘98, ‘02, ‘08, & ‘10. Both 4 and 6 cylinder cars. Wandering as defined by not tracking straight on the expressway is not an issue. These cars are equipped with a very comprehensive suite of driver assist features. Honda has done an excellent job with these, but she may or may not feel comfortable using them. Most have the option of being switched off. Beyond that you will like the greatly increased room in the new Accord. The power is much stronger with the 2.0 vs your ‘02 V6. My gas mileage is averaging about 35 mpg with maybe 50% expressway and 40% rural two lane driving. Very little urban driving. I have experienced no negative issues with my car. I suggest that you insist of a salesperson who can explain all these new features thoroughly.

A good reference is the current report by Car and Driver magazine in their July ‘19 issue. They evaluated the car for one year and 45,000 miles.

No wandering issues with my 2018 Touring Hybrid it tracks better than any car I've had before. The only negative I have at the moment is the seats are pretty low so getting in and out is a little more challenging than my old Ford Taurus Limited where you sat up a lot higher. In fact the edge binding on my drivers seat has already started to fray in one spot from brushing the seat while getting in and out. There are the occasional electronic issues like the head unit rebooting or CarPlay issues but I've seen these issues reported with most cars in recent years.

2018 2.0T Touring here. No wandering, although the lane keeping assist and road departure mitigation systems take some getting used to. The slight budges the steering does for you can be unnerving at first. But, overall, as my 17th vehicle, I really like the way it handles. Reminds me of my previous 528i, just without the AWD (which I SO wish Honda would offer!).
