I did a quick check on the Accord Hybrid EXL, learned that its MSRP is not
much more than a gas one, but selling price is a lot closer to MSRP, wherea
s the gas one is discounted in my area, according to the Kelly Blue Book si
te. The cost difference would take about 25,000 miles to recover in gas co
st, about 2.5 years for me, exclusive of lost investment income. The hybri
d also has a smaller trunk, not sure what my wife would think about having
less hauling capacity from a garden center. I could not find on the Honda
website any mention if the hybrid has a fold down rear seat, something I us
I'll have to test drive a couple, see if I am happy with the CVT.
Thanks for responding.
