Great overall, despite vexations
I've had a Clarity since August, 2018. It's a wonderful car, probably the best I've ever owned, and that includes a Volvo wagon, Subaru Outback, Ford C-Max, and two Priuses. The ride is luxurious, the EV range is impressive (except in the dead of winter), the silence in electric mode is awe-inspiring, and the convenience of a gas engine for longer trips is much appreciated (and will continue to be until our country puts a proper charging network in place). All that said, I have several small complaints, all of which could be easily rectified by Honda:
1. The center screen and HondaLink system are quirky at best. Screen very occasionally freezes. Honda said they won't replace it till I can take several iPhone movies documenting the problem. The absence of a volume knob is just plain silly, although I'm able to make do with the volume control on the steering wheel. The transition between ApplePlay and HondaLink is usually wonky. I find I have to use the steering wheel control to toggle back to FM. I'm sure Honda has fixed all these problems with newer screens in other models. Why not update the Clarity as well?
2. No rear wiper! This is a safety problem, and, I think, one Honda should fix retroactively on all our cars, regardless of the expense. In snow or heavy rain, you simply can't see out the back window. And the back-up camera is no substitute for visibility, since in winter it is often occluded by slush or road grime.
3. Personally, I'd much prefer a hatchback version of this car. It looks as though it could be easily adapted. That would vastly increase functionality.
Other than those issues, the car is wonderful, and probably one of the best values on the road today. Sometimes I marvel at how few have been sold. The more I drive it, the more I love it.
