Excellent vehicle

Recently purchased a 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid in the Touring trim in gun metal grey. I travel a great deal for work and as of yet, have not been disappointed by the gas mileage as another reviewer claimed. On the highway (which at times can be as slow as city speeds in the greater Los Angeles area) I have no problem exceeding the claimed 49mpg. Last 4 trips over 37 miles each way resulted in a minimum of 49.2 to a maximum of 53.6 mpg. It's all in how you drive I guess. The cabin is roomy and well appointed. Not really a fan of the lane keeping feature personally, but its there if I want it. Reliability is a given as with most every Honda. As with my wife's '14 Civic, our recent purchase of the '17 Accord Hybrid Touring has been nothing less than a joy. If given the chance to change my mind on my purchase, I simply wouldn't.

Great Car

I have had it for a couple of weeks, so I am not sure about reliability but it has been great so far. I have been driving in the city and highway miles. It gets great gas mileage and the performance is terrific. It has plenty of power and no issues with acceleration or braking. I have the Touring edition, it has many driving safety features including lane assist which take some getting used to. We have really bad roads around here and that kind of trips it up a bit. There are so many systems on it, it takes hands on instruction and or study of the manual to make sure your questions are answered. The ride is great. This is my 5th hybrid auto, and my third Accord (only hybrid) and my favorite.

Very disappointing mileage

Honda promises 47 city, 49 highway. This car comes nowhere close. I have a light foot and the best I've achieved in 1,500 miles is 42.8. My Camry Hybrid exceeded its rated mileage. Honda claims that mileage is always below the sticker. Not true. I also have a Prius and it equals its stickered mileage.

2017 Accord Hybrid lives up to reviews

I’ve had my EX-L for a week and it has lived up to its rave reviews. Its technological advances make a plug-in hybrid moot or obsolete, especially the improved hybrid drive system. It is succinctly superior to the two Civic Hybrids we have been driving since 2006. This car is well made, comfortable, nicely appointed, fairly quiet, responsive and overall pleasant to drive. I never thought I’d buy another Honda because its dealers are so difficult to deal with on warranty claims, but this car is worth that risk. The safety features including Lane Departure and Collision mitigation are welcomed by two seniors whose driving skills are diminishing. This car makes driving safer for us, plus it has many convenient features like automatic locking, resetting trip odometer on fill-ups, extensive voice control, smartphone integration, etc. (which are more or less found in comparable new cars, but nonetheless pretty cool). Mileage is true to its estimate with 46-48 easily obtained and you can get 50 if you are careful, especially in city driving. My only criticisms are no driver’s side blind spot indicator and the collision mitigation does not bring the car to a complete stop in an emergency. Having said all these nice things about the 2017 Accord Hybrid, we still preferred the updated Toyota Prius Touring model because of higher mpg, more safety features, quieter driving with better handling, and $4500 lower price, but we disqualified that car because the rear window was small and obstructed by a spoiler.
