Honda Performance — I'm not a big fan of the interior wood trim but it gives it a luxury look. You could almost call this car luxurious and almost call it sporty. Not bad for a family sedan. A set of nice new rims and this car would be styling.

Great, Reliable Car. — Car is really sporty, with great acceleration and handling. 0-80 on highway in no time! Perfect commuter car. Car is 8 years and never had a problem other than maintenance items. Audio, controls, accessories are great. Styling a bit plain, but add some exterior molding and its cool enough.

Great For Start Out Car. — I really like my car. Had never had to major job work on it. Has never broke down on me. Got it in Germany and drove it through Europe. My longest drive was from Mahattan, KS to Miami, FL and never broke down after 6 years of having it. Still runs like it's new.

Would Definitely Buy Another Honda. — This was the first car I bought brand new. It was 20 grand. It now has 160,00 miles. The factory battery lasted 7 years. The headlights as well. I usually take it to the dealer for service but don't follow their "maintenance schedule". Utmost reliability. Never left me stranded.

Well Maintained Honda! — I like how this car handles, the steering and the make of this car is great! I like how I can get onto the highway off or on a ramp without any issue of speed. I do move often now and a truck is what I'm currently looking for.

2005 Accord Hybrid Review — Performance - This car is very quick for a sedan made by Honda, in stock configuration it produces 255 hp and 253 lbs of torque. Build quality - Excellent, this is the only model of the Accord built in Japan during these model years and the quality shows. Appearance- Standard accord appearance Cost of ownership- For those who dont do their on work, its gonna cost you. Fun factor- For a sedan its not bad

Pros

good mpg for a v6

Cons

brakes were too sensitive

Great On The Environment — Our 05 accord hybrid got 32 to 35 mpg. We got 4 cylinder mpg out of a v6 which is good in this awful economy. The payments were $400.000 a month. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Too bad we had to get rid of it. I'd own it again.

Great family car with ample room, reliable, holds it's value, low maintenence cost.

Cons

Lacking some horsepower, braking could use some upgrades

Overall A Great Car To Own — Comfortable car to drive. Not too gutsy but enough to get what you need. Gas milage is fair to good, highway mpg is nice. I've had this car for nearly three years and so far it has held up to my driving style. Braking is marginal and the abs is kind of touchy sometimes, makinig braking uncomfortable. The car handles well, just about what you would expect from a stock model. The Accord has always been an attractive car, and the interior is fairly neutral, not flashy, but not ugly. I wouldn't say the car is fun to drive, maybe with an upgrade to the suspention, tires and exhaust system. I own an automatic, wish it was a manual transmission.
