Got suckered in
By lexlaser on


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


Bought this car used 10 mos ago.
Was told we would get about 40 mpg.
Boy were we suckered!
Averages about 17 mpg in town and the best hwy mileage was about 28. Complained to dealer and was told (after the fact) that Honda only made this hybrid for a couple of years and that it was a 'disappointment' so they quit making it.
Wish we were told that before we bought it!
Was told if I drove it 'like a little old lady' I would probably get better mileage.
I swear they said that!
Car tends to vibrate loudly upon deceleration after driving several miles. No more Hondas for us.
Don't get suckered....ask questions about mileage!
I sure miss my Ford!

Best Features

Navigation system nice. Heated leather seats are nice. 6-disc CD player nice. Back seat sufficient for small car. Handles nicely.

Worst Features

Not enough storage. Trunk small. Front seats crowded. Temperature controls are confusing.
