- $14,498 - $16,406
- No trim specified for this review
- Great car in 2008 before Honda recall
- Unbearable after recall to "Reflash ECU"
Purchased As New
Loved this car until Honda reprogrammed it! When Honda realized that the battery packs would not make the 10 year warranty they changed the programing making the hybrid system almost useless! Fuel economy dropped from 40 mpg average to 34 mpg! Hybrid assist was only available a fraction of what it was before the reflash, resulting in high revving of engine to make it up grades or accelerate onto the freeway. When they first reprogrammed the car along with other service, the change was so dramatic and noticeable I returned the car the next day. After realizing that the reflash was the cause, I asked if they could change it back only to find it was not possible. If I had not leased this car I would have hired an attorney! Beware these cars no longer meet the mpg claims made! And all of these cars that are sold as used have been reprogrammed by the dealer.
