Rocket with great mileage and comfort

This car for the money reaches near unbelieveable if that be believeable. It runs away from almost all BMW's and all mercededes save amg's. On the highway the mpg approaches 38-40 depending if you can keep it below 70mph. I choose this hybrid for the confort level over toyota's hybrid and civic hybrid for added size, much better performance and moonroof. None of which can you get on either of the former. The electronic extras for the price are amazing:i.e. drive by wire, 5spd auto, white noise suppression, electronic stablizer tuned to engine vibration and to the tracion control system. Now where are you getting that for 3x's the money? The negatives have aready been mentioned by others-smallish trunk due to electric motor/batteries behnind seat and hence no 'pass thru' which makes for unusuaally uncomfortable rear seat back I feel anyway. I only wish I could ride on 100% electric at low speeds which i thought I could ,but i found no hybrid including prius can you do that.

I bought my car at the end of 2007. It was one of two Accord Hybrids left on the lot. Honda discontinued this model...BIG MISTAKE! I love this car! Besides it's comfort, fresh look, and a good amount of HP in that 3.0L motor, the gas mileage is great! I average 30 mpg through Seattle's stop and go traffic, everyday! My husband and I drove from Seattle to Minot, ND and we averaged 40 mpg on our trip. We were absolutely amazed! This vehicle was under-rated when they were being built and available. I am just glad to have bought one of the last models left and have never regretted that decision to this day. I will never sell or trade in my car unless Honda makes more Accord Hybrids with the same 3.0 V6 motor. Totally blows away the rest of the hybrids out there.

Making The Case for The HAH

The reason the car was not popular was price/fuel economy vs the Prius. With depreciated prices this car is now a value. The HCH has a host of little improvements over the standard Accord without IMA hybrid technology. Its the only 7th gen 06 - 07 model with VCM, electric power steering, and 16 in tires with a v6. It is heavier improving ride and I believe quieter. The exterior styling is more refined with the mirror turn signals and tail light amber turn signals. Its a more substantial car than the Prius. I bought a used 07 NAVI with 2800 miles in 3/10. Mileage has improved to 35.5 mpg on my drive cycle. Great vehicle for a daily 50 mi commute.

2 year Update "Making the Case for the HAH"

I've but 35,000 miles on this car in 2 years. The mileage is a solid 33 to 34 mpg measured by filling up the tank vs the electronic display (off by 6 to 7%). The ride is firm & road noise too high to select the car for long trips over our Oddesey. Noise & ride are acceptable for a 50 mile a day commute. Radio speakers could be better. Exterior styling is timeless. The interior tasteful executed. Car size perfect for a second car. No repairs experienced. The original MSRP was too high if the goal was low transportation costs. But a low mileage HAH bought for $16 - 18K is cost effective with $4 gas. In fact,I can't make the case to trade for a new Prius. Highest recorded gas mileage was 42mpg during a 160 mile drive. Still like the car but not a love affair due to previous mentioned road noise and ride qualities; which in fairness are improved over the 1999-2003 Honda. Accord

Long Term Report at 3 years

I continue to get great gas mileage, 33-34 MPG filling up with 91 RON non-ethanol gas. I like the car much better after replacing the Michelin MXV4s with Bridgestone Ecopia EP 422s. WOW. Like a different car concerning noise reduction and ride improvements. 400 mile trips are now comfortable. Recent trip to Dallas with congested traffic the computer registered 39.4 MPG. With the increased ride comfort I rate the HAH as a great computer car. Sustainment costs (bat replacement) not cheap but the car runs like a normal Accord if you choose not to refresh the Bat pack.

In February 07, i traded in my Audi A4 for a honda accord hybrid. I was really impressed by the test drive, as the car seemed real smooth (more like a buick than a honda) along with 253 horses, which did a lot of this real light honda. I drove SUV's for many years and switched to an Audi to save some money on gas and get some performance. Soon I got tired of my Audi and wanted to experience some comfort and some real good gas mileage. That's why i turned to a 253 HP hybrid. However, initially, I got real low MPG and was really disappointed. I went on a few HAH discusson forums and found out that the driving patterns really do make difference in the MPG. I started driving slightly above speed limit (70 to 75 on freeway) and got approx. 30 MPG for a while. Overall, this car is real quick off the bat, as it has a strong engine and a real light body. Of course it does not seem as stable as the Audi and the handling is not that great, but it is a comfortable car designed, made, and put together in Japan, unlike the rest of the Hondas. I would recommend this car to friends if they can afford the price tag and don't care much for looks. If your focus is on looks rather than reliability and functionality, you can go with something like a 300C...

What a pleasure to drive out on the open road, the miles just fly by as this Eco-Mussel Car sips the gas. Averaging about 37 MPG on the highway this beast has power to spare. Very comparable to a V8 luxury sedan in size, power and comfort. Even though it only gets about 22-24 MPG in the city that is still way better than anything this size with this much power. My V.W. Jetta only gets 24-26 MPG in the city and it is small and gut-less. The handling could be much sharper at low speeds, the cabin noise is a little much and the auto stop features is really annoying at stop signs. A few minor draw backs considering it stickered around 30K and I got my 2007 for 17,250 with 38k miles.

This is a very nice car. It feels like a full size car and gets outstanding acceleration. Unfortunately, even if driven fairly gently, the AVERAGE fuel mileage is 26.5 mpg. That's highway and quite a lot of city driving, but it's till not outstanding for a hybrid.

This car is great. It handles great, it kicks butt at acceleration. And it has room for my kids! The sound system is great for a sedan.

Good intentions, unrefined technology

by from Crestview,FL on May 6, 2011

Great pep of the v6, but if you want to get under 30 mpg, keep it under 65 and in Eco mode through pedal finesse. It can give you the best of both worlds, just not at the same time which is it's plus and minus. Love our car, but am looking forward to both the low gas mileage and power in newer hybrids. Don't switch out the stereo either, the ANC, (engine noise canceler), doesn't like it. Honda ignores the problem when the part needs ripped out and scrapped. Honda doesn't admit its failure so will not do it for you, but will replace it with a new one for $600. Trust me hearing the engine is 200x better than listening to your speakers grumble your entire ride. Again good idea, unperfected technology. Go with a Ford Fusion hybrid until Honda gets their Accord Hybrid act together unless you don't mind the small ugly civic hybrid.
