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


Good car to drive, but not as fun as previous 96 Accord LX. You notice the weight in corners and stopping but the acceleration during highway merge and passing in straights is wonderful. Not made for cornering. Road noise is intrusive and the radio's tinniness doesn't block out the road noise. Drive feedback through the steering wheel is numbing. Transmission shifting is clunky and noticeable especially during smooth, gradual acceleration. Outstanding ventilation controls and headlights.

Best Features

Acceleration, headlights, ventilation layout.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage (currently 26 mpg combined); smoother transmission operation; better brakes; better rear visibility; improved sound system (mp3 capability, subwoofer, 3 vs 2 band tone controls); beter sound insulation; bigger visors (return the pull-outs of the 960; cruise control device layout.
