Default 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Battery

just got my Hybrid but the Battery has never been to a full charge. Always 3/4 or less. Do I need to take it back to the dealer? Is there a problem?

How far have you driven it? I noticed mine would stay about 30-50% full and then start to discharge while driving in the city, but on a few long downhill coasts on the fwy the battery fully charged. Also if you're doing a lot of city driving, shifting into "B" instead of "D" increases regenerative braking, which will charge your battery quicker.

That's normal, the battery depletes quite quickly. As suggested drive in B mode a bit. From what I can tell B mode lightly applies the brakes when you release the gas to charge the battery more. Even a full charge is only going to give a mile or two in EV mode, so the cycle of charging and switching to EV and depleting is good and what you want to max MPG. I have noticed that anything over 69-70 MPH and it will not go into EV mode at all dropping MPG 38-39 on cruise.
