About Honda Accord Hybrid

Whether you're looking for the Labrador retriever of family-friendly midsize sedans, a stylish and powerful coupe, or a refined hybrid that kisses 50 mpg, the 2017 Honda Accord delivers like few others. Long loved for its faithful reliability, great resale value and inherent ability to please a wide palette of buyers, the 2017 Accord remains a highly recommendable car even as rivals clamor for its benchmark status. The Accord just marked its 40th anniversary, and it shows no sign of resting on its laurels. The standard model was upgraded last year with features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and automatic emergency braking, and this year marks the reintroduction of a hybrid model. We continue to like almost everything about the Accord except its optional touch-screen controls.

Pros: "Great mpg for distances more than 15+ miles."

Cons: "Molding design and short distance mpg not good."

"I've only had this car for a month now. I can see why it works for some and not for others; it's a little finicky. When you watch the mileage meter, you can see that there are generally three mileages: about 20, 32 and 80+ mpg. This seems to correspond to the three different drive modes: engine, hybrid, and electric. When cold, even if the battery is fully charged, the system doesn't like EV (electric only) mode for too long (so no sneaking out of the house in silent mode.) The engine will turn on to warm up. Once the engine is warm the system will figure out which mode is best. This usually means that short trips under 5 miles or so will probably be bad mpg as this is usually at the 20 mpg range. My drive to work is about 25 miles with stop and go traffic on the freeway during rush hour. The system seems to like speeds in the 20 to 50 mph range and stays in EV mode longer. I guess this is why the "city" mileage is better than highway. Unless you're really feathering the throttle, the engine will kick on to accelerate but EV mode maintains speeds pretty well. Going at 60-70 mph it looks like its 1/3 mile in EV mode (80+ mpg) and 2/3 mile hybrid (about 32 mpg). If I did the math correctly, it comes out to 48 mpg per mile, which is right on the official mileage amount. I found that when I get up to speed (anything over 25 mph), I turn on the ACC and the system holds EV mode longer and I get better mileage. I've gotten to work with 61 mpg average over 25 miles if I "play" the system. My average tank mpg has been 53-54 mpg because of those short low speed trips I do during the day though. I've done this with the ECON system on. Next test is to see if I get better mileage with the system off. Sport mode seems to tie the engine to the wheels faster so you get better response at the cost of mpg. The downside is that accelerator in normal mode feels spongy after driving in sport mode for a while. The only cons I have are body related. Some of the rubber moldings weren't pinned to the door properly. The plastic pins came off the rubber molding on a couple of doors and I had to fumble for a while to get them back on. Also all of the moldings seem to be attached by tacking it on the car rather than a more permanent method. There's a lot of gaps that water can accumulate which may cause future (rusting) problems. Only time will tell. Also, recently picked a friend up from the airport and only one of their oversized bags fit in the trunk. The second had to go in the back seat. Trunk space is limited, but if you're looking at reviews you'd have already run into the many comments about trunk space so I won't belabor the point. Overall, I like the styling, the passenger space, technology, and mpg that the hybrid has to offer. I'll keep my fingers crossed about the reliability. I'll post an update if need be."

Pros: "Comfort, handling, connectivity"

Cons: "Trunk Space, MPG not as advertised, No Spare Tire"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"I purchased this car at the end of May 2014. My commute to work is 154 miles RT every day with 70% being Interstate at 70 MPH and the remainder small town and 55 MPH two lane black top. The MPG has been disappointing considering the 51 / 45 claim. On my daily trip I average about 42 MPG using the best driving habits I can. The trunk space is dismal and I do not like the fact that there is no spare tire. The ride and handling are very good. I really enjoy the sound system and blue tooth connectivity. The interior fit leaves something to be desired because the car has several temperature and vibration related rattles in the interior."
