Enjoyable experience

Love the comfort and level of technology built into this vehicle. Feel more appreciative about it now that this car is not sold anywhere else other than California. Feel safe in this car, keeping it clean and maintaining it well for the long run.

Best car ever!

The Clarity is a remarkable machine. Nothing is perfect but this car is good! Reliable, after 10,000 miles nothing to report other than a minor rattle that was fixed. As a plug in hybrid we just plug it into a 110v outlet after every use. If the 17kw battery is completely discharged it gets back to full chsrge in 10 to 12 hours. On a level 2 charger it takes just over 2 hours. We use battery nearly all the time and the gas engine seldom comes on. Only on trips in excess of 45 to 50 miles will it be used. The car has three basic modes of travel. Battery only, normal hybrid and sport mode. In battery only the car runs on battery power only unless you really need aggressive acceleration then the engine seamlessly comes to life and adds an additional approximately 100 up. In hybrid mode the car will use the engine more frequently an will keep the battery charged to around 75% full charge. In sport mode the engine is always engaged and the car is somewhat more lively to drive. The Clarity is a full sized 5 passenger car and greatly resembles a Honda Accord. Plenty of leg and head room front and back with a near normal trunk that includes a pass through into the back seat for large loads. It has most of the new car safety and driver assist features like reactive cruise control that will maintain a preset speed but will respond to traffic from highway speed to a full stop and then restart as traffic begins to move. Lane assist well keep the vehicle in a lane of traffic hands off but requires your attention after 15 seconds. It also is only useful on major highways and will not make sharp turns. It is driver assist not driverless performance. There are also features such as lane change warnings that activates a shaker in the steering system to keep the driver aware of what is going on. Turn signal camera for right turn only why only right turns I don't know. The car is very efficient drive. I live in a rural area and am about 20 miles from town. I have so far (10,000 miles)put 60 gallons of gas in this car so that's about 166mpg. When the battery is fully discharged and you are essentially running on engine only the car gets about 40 miles per gallon. I have not taken many trips longer than 200 miles but the car range is rated at about 370 miles. I see this car as the perfect transition car between all electric cars of the future and the gas guzzlers of today. If there is one outstanding disappointment in this vehicle it would have to be in Honda's touch screen information system. It has many great features but is in my opinion awkward to learn and use. User intuitive It is not.

A Great Vehicle

Everything about the Clarity is excellent … the concept, the design, the materials, the size, the weight, the build (Oh, that tight, sound, magnificent build), the advanced technology. It is, indeed, the car of the year- this year and well into the foreseeable future. I am very pleased with my Clarity. If I ever find something (anything) wrong with it, I will be sure to let Honda know. Meanwhile, I'm driving with the biggest and broadest smile all over my face. If anyone is serious about fun driving, intelligent transportation, and responsible ecological stewardship, then this is the car for them … without even the slightest doubt. An electrician who I had never met before and who drives a Cadillac ELR spent over an hour visiting with Ms. Clarity. Of course, she blushed - all of that commotion about her.
