2007 Honda Accord Hybrid 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 5A)

Review

A solid car but one that has real but not fatal flaws. Build quality is very high but it does however have some quirks: the engine shut-off feature is too aggressive, especially in common stop-and-go traffic. The battery recharge process that occurs during braking causes a shudder towards the end of slowing to a stop (<10mph to 0 mph) almost like the car is trying to stall (which it doesn't). The steering is smooth and especially easy at slow speeds. Aggressive acceleration is fairly jerky as the motor assist comes and goes as the car shifts gears. Good news - most of this stuff is probably just software fixes. Bad news - Honda let this car out of the lab before it was totally baked.

Favorite Features

Well designed interior; solid build; plenty of room in the cabin; comfortable leather seats; loaded with options; an 8 out of 10 for most car makers, a 6 out of 10 by Honda standards.

Suggested Improvements

Software fixes for the auto shut-off routine and the motor assist during acceleration; fix the shuddering from the battery charge process during braking. Use the Lith-Ion batteries so the trunk isn't so small. A compass for the non-navigation model would be nice. So would rain sensing wipers.
