I got this Civic as a second car and because of my commute became my primary car. So far, no issues and really good gas mileage (from 37 to 46MPG in AZ) with Octane 87. I believe I have the better one so far according to (www.fueleconomy.gov). So why buy a hybrid? I recently changed the spark plugs which made a huge difference as the car is more responsive than ever. I'm loving it!
Even it's a coupe, we can fit 5 people inside! Huge MPG, easy driving, cruise control well located, smooth driving.
More horse power without impacting the mileage (115 is kinda low, 120 would be great).
