2006 Honda Accord Hybrid 4dr Sedan w/Navi (3.0L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid 5A)


Initial mpg 22/27 calculated by driving and topping off frequently. My wife did a little better @ 24/28. She just broke 20k and now we get 25/36. There are times when we get a real bad number (quite possibly from gas station pump error). The city mileage is about the same as a regular 6-cyl. Hwy fluctuates from (minus bad readings under 21 mpg!!!) 27-37.5. The more "broken-in" the better it seems at the moment. I am really curious about the rest of folks with this car. Are you all getting better results as the vehicle gets older? One small neg is the "jerk" when you step off the brake and touch the gas petal. The work around is let the brake go, wait 2 sec then touch the gas.

Best Features

Awesome power. Nav is great! My non-techy wife loves it too! Usability is 10/10! It is a bit quirky though, like when you select letters, you have to touch the lower right corner of the letter. Voice activation is a WASTE. "Radio-on" turns the A/C on.

Worst Features

Struts/shocks are great, the tires/wheel stinks. Made to drive "soft." The stock 17 on the reg 6-cyl would have been better (or me) though my wife loves the "softness." The car accelerates nicely but the tires "softness" rocks you to-and-fro.
