This is my 6th Honda, first Hybrid. So naturally I like Honda's. I was surprised by the power, not like the original VW diesel of yesteryear. Car is fun to drive, but watch out don't get caught and wrapped up looking at the dashboard constantly showing data or you will be in an accident. I only have it for a couple weeks but the MPG is as good or better than the sticker rating. Usual Honda quality, not a thing wrong so far, there is no laundry list for the dealer to repair when first service come around.
That's easy, the Hybrid and electric assisted motor.
Relocate the batteries so the back seat folds down, and I do like to see front end of car, when you sit in and drive, you see nothing but the windshield, hard to judge in tight situation. I rather give up 1 MPG and see better. The brakes are a little sluggish also.
