2005 Honda Accord Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 5A)


Review

I own the Accord hybrid with navigation system because I have no sense of direction. There are a few turns left to be desired with the Navi, but that's not an auto flaw. This is a terrific car, but I have not yet bonded with it, 17 months later, and I don't know why. If I could figure out what other car I'd prefer, I'd sell this one and buy that one. I often forget to lock the car, not yet accustomed to the electic locks and key


Best Features

Love the electric windows - this is the first car I've owned with them, and have gotten accustomed to them very fast.

2005 Honda Accord Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 5A)


Review

Excellent car, it is comfortable and fast with good handling. My overall mileage for the last 8000 miles is 30.7. Probably representing about 70% city driving. In local suburban driving I get from a low of 25 mpg if it is a shopping trip with lots of stops and starts, to 30 mpg in more typical point to point trips. On the highway the mileage at 70 mpg ranges from 34 to 43 depending on wind and other factors. My average highway is probably about 37.


Best Features

I love monitoring the mileage meters and watching the regenerative breaking recharge the battery. A real "conservation of energy" machine.


Worst Features

Larger font size for the the mileage meters above the steering column. Rocker switches for the heated seats are easy to turn on accidently due to their location.

2005 Honda Accord Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 5A)


Review

At 3000 miles the mileage is increasing as it gets broken in. Currently is at 30 MPG. Mileage judged by electronics in car and by miles ./. gallons used. Excellent quality. Only downside is rear seats don't fold and slight loss of trunkroom due to Hybrid Battery location. Roomy interior, 255 Horsepower, 30 MPG. The ideal car for me


Best Features

Room, MPG, power, XM radio built-in


Worst Features

Have a line in input for IPOD/ MP3 player to Car Radio

Review

I purchased this car at the end of the '05 model year when my dealer was offering "employee pricing". I considered the hybrid and a new '06 non-hybrid since they were the same price. I gave up the larger wheels, moon roof and revised exterior trim for the promise of better fuel mileage. I felt a bit cheated for the first months until the EPA released its test results from its new (more realistic) testing method. The technology works seamlessly together, with no indication of the battery or 3 cylinder modes engaging/disengaging. The auto stop is the only item that takes a few days to get used to. When you are rolling to a stop the engine shuts off while the car is still moving.


Best Features

The comfort and fit and finish are very nice. The center layout for the stereo and HVAC is beautiful, but we use the climate control instead of most of these. The cupholders in the door pockets are a great use of that space. The front map lights, center consol light and homelink are wonderful


Worst Features

All of my desired improvements have been addressed in the '06 model.
