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


I also was surprised to learn that this car does not come w/ a spare tire. I went to a used tire place and purchased a full size spare /used rim for $85. I am wondering if this heavy tire will affect my gas mileage. I plan on only using it for long distance trips. Also was disappointed that I had to purchase the compass/ auto diming rear view mirror...think it should have been standard on a $30K car! Love the satellite radio and the car drives really smooth. So far the mileage indicator has been 32 at the highest number, 28 lowest. Fun to drive, really quiet. Very comfortable.

Best Features

Leather seats very comfortable, XM radio (could use better speakers though) miss the BOSE system I had on my 2004 Maxima! Like the gas mileage indicator always showing on dash.

Worst Features

Include a spare tire, better stereo system, include Compass/Auto Dimming rear view mirror as STD. also when you open the driver door to get out, it either goes out too far or swings back in on you. need to fix that.
