The Hybrid Lineup is a bit out of date... it doesn't include the Accord or Escape. Is there anyone who would be willing to find the necessary information so that I can update the page? I'm having trouble finding the time right now... and the motivation Thanks in advance!

I'll help out Jason. I will do the Ford Escape Hybrid thing if someone else will do the other. Give me about a week.

Jason - Let us know what format you want and perhaps it is important to reference by website or source from where each piece of information came.

I don't think it's necessary to reference a single source, as the information is simply fact and is likely distributed across many sources already. No specific format... just look at the table and find out what value goes in each box. For the Escape, I think it will have to be broken down into 2WD vs. 4WD instead of Manual vs. CVT/Auto.

Hi Jason:

___That wasnít too bad Ö I had to take some liberty w/ both GHG emissions @ 15K and Min Charge 0 - 60 performance.

Thanks. I'll update the page when I can. Do you know if there are any optinons the Accord offers that I can add to the table? I'll need to know if the other cars offer it, as well.

Hi Jason:

___There are so many to add and the same could probably be said of all the Hybridís in their own particular sort of way. I will give you an AH spec run down in a few minutes as that is a lot to type

Hi Jason:

___I did not see an external Temperature Indicator in the list but it comes with all Leather equipped Accordís so I believe Honda might have left it out of the AHís Brochure? I skipped some of the small details from the spec page as they were either redundant or unimportant. Unless you wanted to write up its exterior length, width, height, etc.

Believe the only factory option is the navigation system. There are the typical range of dealer options - mats, cargo net, cassette player, wheel locks, auto-dimming mirror with compass. Homelink is standard, but located in small panel with map lights overhead.

___I did not see an external Temperature Indicator in the list but it comes with all Leather equipped Accordís so I believe Honda might have left it out of the AHís Brochure?
An external temperature gauge is included - it alternates on the display with the odometer.

Hi Extex:

___That is good to know as I remember seeing the temperature indicator in the std. Honda Accord EX-Lís and EX-Lís w/ NAVI before and I could not imagine Honda taking that information away from an AH owner. There are usually small items not in the brochures that you might find and add as well. As an example, the Ranger XLT had a 4-pin wiring harness for towing and an engine block heater not listed in the brochure. If you see anything like that, please post to this thread at your earliest convenience.

___Good Luck
