- Very Poor Mileage, Seats hard head rest lean head forward VCR shudder no seat memory no rear vent
After 3100 miles of driving in our Accord we have averaged 14.3 miles a gal in town driving and 25.5 miles @ 60 miles per hr. We take off slow, coast to stop. shift into neutral at stoplights and turnoff the car if idling more than a minute or so. We sold our Avalanche which got 15 mile per gal for a smaller less equiped vehicle that is a chore to drive to get better mileage.
The seats are very firm and long trips uncomfortable. the head rest force your head frontward and unpleasent . No seat memory means my petite wife and I have to take time to reset the seat. No rear A/C is uncomfortable for our kids. The arm rest slides forward which means you cannot use the drink holder. The radio is not that impressive compared to our former Bose system, Heated seat on Honda only heats bottom of seat not the back,
The sunroof is quiet when driving which is an improvement over our Chevy. Performance for a V6 is marginal and lacks punch over 65 miles per hr. The VCM does shudder though when it kicks in but you can live with it. Our seat track broke on the ar and awaiting parts to replace, the dealer told us to live with the mileage. Can use a 6 speed transmission. Overall we gave up a lot of comfort with our Avalanche for poor mileage in town and but definetly better highway miles. We are shopping for another vehicle.
