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


I bought an EX-V6 before this one and find the hybrid much better in quality. My EX-V6 squeaked and rattled loudly after 1K miles, we'll see how this one does (hybrid feels better put together). The ride feels much better and i like the electric steering. Gas mileage is *HIGHLY* variable -- 10 to 20 in rush hour traffic but 25-40 while moving around town. 35-45 mpg on highway where vcm really helps out. overall better acceleration than EX-V6, but accelerating keeps the car in V6 mode and thus you won't realize gas savings. Therefore, you can save on gas, but you have to work @ it -- don't be a lead foot and drive @ off peak hours. Other features it shares with EX-V6 work just as well.

Best Features

Navigation system, as in EX-V6 is great. I wouldn't buy one w/o. highway fule economy in open traffic is also great, and the car feels better than the gas version. Overall, Honda did an excellent job of making a hybrid with minimal sacrifice, the big exception being the rush hour gas economy/sp tire

Worst Features

SPARE TIRE !!! Honda says there isn't one because of the weight associated. Given that the car is best used for long freeway trips where repair facilities are far and few, it's necessary. It's true that it would weigh less without door beams or other safety gear, but these are needed like a tire is
