Okay had my BLK/BLK EX for two weeks. Averaging 22 mpgs. Haven't been on a trip. Love the ride and excelleration. Interior road noise is much quieter than the 2010 Accord Sedan I test drove before this BUT it still has more road noise than I feel a car of this price should have. I think maybe it's the Bridgestone tires but would like to here from some of you. I couldn't be much more happier with all other aspects of this vehicle though.

Glad you enjoy it!!!

The stock tires are rather noisy... so that could be it.

I'm not sure how you like to drive, but if I'm not dogging it, I can get my 4wd Crosstour to average 25 without even trying.

I've I'm really conscious of it I can easily crack 28.

Thanks for the hello Chef.

I have been playng a bit so I am sure the 22 will get better although coming from an F-150 at 15 mpgs I am happy. I have the EX with the 17 inch P-265 Bridgestones and I think they are my noise culprit. Love the car though.

Do you rely on the computer, or do you do the calculations yourself?

That's all based on the computer... I haven't bothered to calculate it myself (yet).

Although, I have no reason to doubt my "average" mpg display... I've def seen it suffer when I'm having fun or carry a lot of gear.

I had a 2008 accord sedan for two years before getting the CT and I fell in love with how quiet it was compared to the sedan. In the beginning it sounded cool but on some roads it got annoying. Sounded like teeth grinding smh... My music was always loud for that reason lol... I keep the volume between 10 and 12 on avg and it muffles out almost all of the engine noise (just downloaded that kanye album and the speakers are on blast all day lol)... I loved my 08 but the CT answered almost every complaint I had about the sedan :D

Welcome, Texas, and congrats on the new CT.

Very quiet in my CT altho a little gear noise from the 4WD system creeps in but no tire noise from the Michelin Latitude tires that came with it.
Being a crossover/station wagon variant, you can expect some noise in the rear but it shouldn't be too intrusive especially in the Front WD cars.

Generally I'm very pleased with the car too. This is a big, heavy, car and I'm impressed by the ride, economy, and amenities.
So far no issues at all.

Congratulations on the new CT.

My CT has the Michelin tires and it handles better and is way quieter than the 06 Accord I had before I fell in love with the CT.

I think there was something weird with the Accord tranny because on some highway roads it just felt odd which I do not notice with the CT.

I hope you love your CT as much as I love mine.
